Remember that problem I've been wrestling with for two weeks now, the challenge of doom, that was going to send me hurtling to my eventual and horrible demise?

Solved it.

Without getting into the brain numbing details of exactly what it was, and how to fix it, I can summarize by saying that in a certain configuration file that absolutely everything relied on, the word "plugin" should have actually been plural, "plugins".

 "Help me with this plugin, Fred."  "I think you mean these plug-ins, Wally."

"Help me with this plugin, Fred."  "I think you mean these plug-ins, Wally."

That's right.  My entire technical problem, the thing that's been making me stark raving insane for days was that I was missing the letter "s" on the word "plugin".

When I figured this out, I was simultaneously angry, happy, and relieved.  Angrappilieved?

It's kind of a wonderful, horrible sensation.

My boss had told me, during my epic nuclear melt-down, that he was fairly confident my complete stance of despair meant I was about 2 days away from solving the problem.

I called him on the phone today and told him of my success, and told him to not be so sickeningly smug about it.

But I was smiling as I said it.
