It's weird, but I find that often the hardest part of programming is not figuring out what to do, but what to call it, such that everything has a meaningful and unambiguous name...

Word.

I spent two days once wandering around the office, asking technical writers, business analysts, receptionists, DBAs, and basically everyone I could grab a moment of time from. Because I had one object/concept/class/table that I could not name. And I simply could not continue until I knew what it was, because otherwise the semantics would get messy and wrong.

I am pretty sure most of the people I consulted thought I was a freak. But they did help me, and I'm fine with that.
