SAP = Life
I've been getting into the depths of SAP for a project at work. The kind of depths where I have to cancel all my meetings so I can concentrate for long periods of time on multiple tables, data field names, queries and all sorts of "fun" stuff. (Or maybe I was looking for an excuse to cancel meetings!)
I get so wrapped up in computer stuff that it takes over my life. I get amused that I can name an infoset with 9 joined tables after myself. Next I'll be naming infosets amusing things like, REALLY_GOOD_INFOSET. It took me days to make a really good query that doesn't work right, and have to change the infoset, which means changing the query, and back and forth we go. I remember this type of work from some programming work I did years ago, back when they had this thing called a command prompt, and this other thing called DOS.
After hours and hours of SAP work, I looked up and saw a neat, swirly icon. Hovering the cursor over the icon shows that it means Enhance. My brain is discombobulated in SAP-land, so the first thing I thought was, "How cool! If I click this button will my life get better? Will it be like going through a wormhole in space and everything will be wonderful?"
Even better is the icon two to the right of Enhance. It looks like a matchstick, but it's really a magic wand!
Tonight I think I'll dream about clicking buttons called Enhance and swirling into a better world...
