Dream Time II

Last night I dreamed about a bug in my new text code ... I'd forgotten to call FlushSpacingCache after adding justification space between reflowing and painting the text.

This morning I remembered, and fixed it.

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

I guess it's better than the dreams I've occasionally had where I've woken in the middle of the night absolutely *sure* I've just spotted a problem with my code, rushed over to the computer, done it, then gone back to bed.
Woken the next morning to find to find I've typed garbage into Eclipse.
Like "Paint the crocodile green to fix the integer overtow"
Ahhh, the days of dreaming in Nethack.

This has happened to me in the past, as well :-) Perhaps not when completely asleep, but certainly when half asleep.
