Sometimes you can measure and rate the software you develop by the amount of confidence you have when you're presenting it to your clients. I remember showing two integrated database systems to three client schools September last year. I was more confident presenting Project:Genesis which was a couple of years old already compared to Project:Alexandrieia (Integrated Media Center System) which then was only two and a half months old. Still pretty much in its infancy if you'd ask me.

With Genesis, I can even click and present things with eyes closed while I was closing my eyes and crossing my fingers silently when I was presenting Alexandrieia.

But after months of working up to 3 or even 4 in the morning, Alexandrieia have grown to something a little 'powerful' than before. It can now even auto-detect a user who have not taken a bath yet and initialize the shutdown procedure once it detects a certain scent from a user. Yes that's how powerful APIs are.
