Anyhow, there's this weird aspect of working with this stuff because I've automated the whole process, and none of the people using the data it generates really gets that. I think they're under the impression that I'm doing it by hand. They're always saying "well, I don't really need X", and it's somehow very difficult to explain to them that it would actually be more work for me to NOT give them X. No, seriously. Let me give you X as well, it's easier that way.
The only thing that's work for me is when they have a request that's either ill-specified, or that requires something new in the way of input or output. (That's what this one is: non-rectangular regions, adding a histogram.)
Not that I'm complaining about them thinking that I'm some kind of superhuman data analyst, rather than just a guy who's so lazy that he builds tools to avoid doing anything by hand more than once, but it's kinda weird.
