Being a pain in the ass has its benefits

Written by Scrivs on September 12, 2007

While we are approaching the final lap of development for Ali2, we have started to migrate 9rules Members from their secret lair into a new secret lair that integrates with the 9rules site itself. The problem is there is a key feature in the prior secret lair that they aren’t too pleased isn’t in the new secret lair (Kyle being the ringleader of this rogue bunch). So being a kind overlord I assured them that I put the feature on the list for development, but it couldn’t be done right away. Then a couple more people spoke up about missing the new feature.

Then a couple more and a couple more. They weren’t being annoying or anything like that, they just wanted to get the point across that they really liked that feature and would really love to see it brought over to 9rules. I pushed it aside, but apparently my subconscious did not because while coding today I think I came up with the solution for developing the feature.

Somehow the Members had infiltrated the deep recesses of my brain and programmed the solution into it. Usually I would not encourage them to be a pain in my ass (they are angels more times than not), but this time it paid off for them. So if you are at work and you really want something from your boss don’t be overbearing, but make sure he knows what you want and drop little hints to work on his subconscious because you never know what will happen.
