Sometimes your demo code works right away. Other times it can take a solid week of hacking. And then there are those times when you encounter a demo that takes a year or so to finally work.
The first kind is very easy. The second kind is challenging. The third is very very frustrating.
Today I finally succeeded getting a demo of the third kind to work. It’s been a long haul, and I had been starting to suspect that this day would never come.
I think I’ll take the evening off now and watch an old Spielberg movie. Maybe something with mashed potatoes.
