Today's log entry is about resolution. First, I am deeply impressed with the night shots the new digicam takes. The attached image of my cell phone was taken in complete darkness, yet it is sharp, crisp, and the colours are extremely vibrant, while the noise on the black is minimal or even non-existent. I really like the way it burns in. More images to come.
The second resolution is relates to problem solving or conflict. At work, several things that affect me directly have changed over the last several months. The changes were definitely in good faith, but they were implemented quickly to meet deadlines, without much thought of the process as a whole. In other words, the solution was half-way. Initial talks with the person responsible for the changes to remedy the situation proved fruitless. Over the last several days, I have brainstormed the root of the problem. The weak link between the two (independently fabulous) incompatible systems that were hacked together was identified. This allowed for a solution to be made that could be implemented in a matter of hours, using proven open source tools instead of proprietary formats, and which is considerably faster and very much simpler. All the changes are nearly implemented, and it looks like the system as a whole will benefit. All in a good day's work.
