I really don’t want to be right.

If I’m right, it means that we have at least 2 weeks worth of work that will need to be redone.

I really don’t want to be right, but I’m afraid I might be.

And what really sucks is that I vocalized my concerns about this issue when it first came up (2 weeks ago). So if I’m right, I’ll at least have an “I told you so” – but I’d really rather not, in this case.


also: I need to get back into the habit of posting here. (how long have I been saying that now?)

returns to lurking in the corner and hoping that he’s wrong.

  1. Yes and no. I was right about the problem, but wrong about the scope. There were fewer entries in the database that were affected by the problem than I was afraid of. We had to re-do some work, but not everything for the project for previous 2 weeks. And there’s another upside – better documentation has been created for our processes in the lab to avoid similar problems in the future.
