Telling computers what to do

Lately, at my main day job, there has been a frenetic pace of programming. We have a lot going on. Three major projects are all going live at about the same time. I'm not sure anyone understands just how frenetic it is, except for the other guy I work with, who is similarly busy.

If we get the essentials in, there will be time afterward to clean it up and tweak it.

Rhyme of the day:
