in reply to Stupid Emotional Programmer Attachment, anyone?
While the other analysts were standing around scratching their heads, I dabbled around with some Perl code and SQL programming and built a nice little interface that displays the information on our Intranet. It works well--people use it--and it cost the hospital exactly nothing in actual dollars for software.
It's not so much the code that I'm proud of--it's the ability that Perl has of being able to do much-with-little. And the fact that while I'm considered to be a bit of an odd-duck here, I was able to pull up a solution for a problem that no one else knew how to solve.
