  • Sometimes, when I am overwhelmed and overly busy, I freak out and do something completely unrelated to what I'm supposed to be doing. Keith calls it the nervous hamster syndrome, the hamster washing up as the snake approaches. What I did, when I was supposed to be working, was try out this new tutorial. As you can see, I need more practice, but I've come to my senses, I hope, and won't be practicing any more today.
