So while doing some data crunching and analysis, I managed to find a discrepancy on how LJ generates data. So, I've gone and made a post off to the LJ tech support minions to see if they can help me find an answer to something very specific :)
Happily my research has also turned up 2 bugs in the OS I am developing for. :)
So, I feel like I am actually competent in the job I am doing.
