Fun fact: I saw the world trade center fall from the top of that parking garage to the left. I was supposed to be at the WTC for a stupid training course from Sept 10-15th ’01 that I didn’t need: (not one of the ones that fell or got hit ,so I probably wouldn’t have died). I would’ve had a really miserable day.
Corporate culture as it was, new dept heads were trying to steal my project and make “on the web” and in a “data cube” instead of my Microsoft Excel / Visual basic monstrosity. That’s why I wanted to stay at work.
They failed (sorry Microstrategy), and kept using it long after I left, so it was a bit of victory for the lone programmer nerd (me)
