When I was a kid I idolized athletes. ¬In college I idolized musicians. ¬As a middle aged dude I idolize superior programmers.
Today I achieved something I am very excited about. ¬I got a couple of lines (and one of those is a comment) of code included in one of Ray Camden’s projects at RIAForge. ¬The project is GoogleCal. ¬It’s a ColdFusion CFC for interacting with Google’s Calendar service. ¬My tiny, wee contribution: helping to submit an “all day” event. ¬It is such a small, small, small, small, small (keep going), miniscule piece of Ray’s project, but just to be able to contribute ANYthing to someone who gives so much to the CF community is freaking AWESOME.
