I dreamed in bits and bytes

Last night in my dreams, I dissected some code for a client to produce a quote for a new project. I awoke muttering, "database abstraction layer." The Matrix has me!

  1. Haha, reminds me of a story I heard from a work colleague of mine who was doing some freelance work for a client. Hit a very tough obstacle in the project, literally spent days on trying to orchestrate a solution. The deadline kept looming closer and the stress of the situation invaded his dreams. Well, one night, he actually dreamed the solution in his sleep — waking up immediately, running to his computer and coding the fix (which worked). Made the deadline.

    Funny part about all this? He billed the client for the time involved with the dream, considering it genuine work time. =)

  2. Haha! I’ve dreamed solutions many times but never have I had the genius to bill for the time!
