Making Things EXPLODE
While attempting to fill an empty hour between the delivery of a 400lb pallet of gear and the end of the morning duties I found myself working up a large head of frustration attempting to get a complicated computer program to preform a simple function. How hard is it to cut one big length of road into a smaller length on a map? Apparently quite difficult for a computer. I finally gave in and asked the local expert. The solution was to use the (I kid you not) "Explode" function for the program. So I gleefully went and "exploded" the roads I had been working on. It was quite satisfying and got the job done.
