Nerd Speak 101: Here is your lesson today, class. Code Freeze.
We were sitting around the other night, pretty much like we have been for the past two weeks. Josh on his computer working away to the wee hours and me making my way through Season 1 of In Treatment. Not so exciting after the first couple nights, but that is the price I pay to be married to an engineer. Just part of the job.
So, on Sunday night, Josh leans over and asks me if I know what a "code freeze" is. I think he sees that my eyes have officially glazed over and my butt has made a permanent imprint in the couch. I am in need of some serious motivation. Some choice words that will show me there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Code Freeze. Nope. Out of all the nerd speak I have heard come out of his mouth, these words are new to me. Come to find out, these words are just what I want to hear. They tell me that Josh won't have to be working late nights after Monday and that are lives can be taken off pause. Thank god.
However, for you all (especially you BLOGGERS), code freeze has another significance. It literally means that no more code can be written for a project being launched soon...very soon! I can't give you all the details. Just know there is a light at the end of this tunnel. Blogger launch coming soon!
*Stay tuned for more details after the unveiling.
