    It's kind of amusing really. You think you know some stuff, and you get thrown a new project your way.

    You of course take it up eagerly telling everyone that you already know a lot about product X or Y, and so you begin looking at the what it is that the customer wants you to work on when it comes to this 'X' or 'Y' that you were such an expert on a few hours before.

    The first feeling is a few strange muscle spasm in your neck as you try to decipher the language being used by the people to describe your new assignment. Doesn't last long, but it feels like of similar to Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory.

    Then you dig further, and decide you need to brush up on a few more curious perspectives of technology Z in order to give your customer 100% and then some.

    So you dig up some internal distribution lists and documents, and you're faced with +100 pages of reading.

    Two words: I wish

    (well, actually they're not complicated subjects per se, but the customer wants some pretty obscure data... I guess I need to put on my optimistic hat and chalk it up as a learning process which helps me get even better with this product, yeeehaw).

    If you don't mind me asking shinigami, what is your role? And what's the product that you're working with the client on?
