Moment of Insight

A-ha moments are the best. This isn't exactly spiritual, but I love it when this happens. For a number of minutes this morning I was looking through flow charts trying to find a storage variable. I couldn't find it anywhere, yet I knew I needed it at one point in the testing phase. A coworker came to my desk to talk about something unrelated, although at one point in the conversation I told her I couldn't find the variable. She said she'd go to her desk to try to find it. The second she walked away, it was like a light bulb flickered on in my head. I remembered where the variable was! It was in a parameter table! I told her that she should hang around my desk more often, because she gave me insight without meaning to.
