Here's a Wikipedia entry on DODAF.
I still have no idea what purpose, militarily, this serves, other than to give Generals and Service Under-Secretaries something pretty to look at and play with to keep them out of the way of the people who actually have to, you know, fight wars. Which, come to think of it, may be purpose enough.
Been learning a lot. Never done web work before. So learning ASP, XAML, etc. Using Expression Blend, which is the worst dev environment I've seen in years. The worst that people pay money for, anyway.
Really small, startup, company. About 25 of us. Poised to grow like a weed, or crater. And Friday was the Big Demo, after which we would find out if it was Grow, or Die.
So yesterday, while working on the latest part of the portal I go to $Manager and say "I need data!"
"No you don't. Let's get the team together."
Oh shit. Time to update the old resume, I guess. Not that I'm paranoid, or anything...
Team gets together. $Manager: "We've got a new contract. Quick turnaround. 6 week deliverable. A biometric login/watchlist system. Not portal based. Fingerprint scanners, smart cards, web services to talk to backend databases. This is a demo, so that $Customer can exercise us to see what we can handle."
Gonna be a bit busy for awhile. Gotta learn a whole new set of technologies, fast.
I really like my job. Good thing I'm a subscriber, and thus get access to that feature.
