Kändi Kitchen!

My plan was faster than I.
Or I was simply slower than I planed.1
Anyway. Soon all this will be forgotten, because NOW, the Kändi-Lab-Kitchen is ‘operational’. Yes!

What a big sign on the mail box. Why does the postman have a hard time finding my place?What a big sign on the mail box. Why does the postman have a hard time finding my place?


After weeks of painting, replacing the floor, cutting a hole into a wall, installing lights and electricity, placing the ventilation, installing the kitchen furniture, etc. the last two weeks finally brought many small presents. I got gas (cooking coffee became possible!), I got an internet connection (juhuiii), and the fridge is running so I can cool some beers to celebrate the birth of the Kändi Kitchen!

Now the next steps:
- The packaging design for the first candy bars has already advanced quite a bit and the boxes will soon be ready!
- Preparing the crowdfunding launch.
- AND: COOOOOKING FIRST CARAMELS!

And reality would be much farther from my lousy planing if I would have worked alone. So:
Thanks so much to Roman, Jochen, Benjamin, Gabor, Franz, my parents, and many others for their helping hands!!

  1. Why do things you want to make/built/invent -on average- always take longer than you’d think? Hmm… Limited brain capacity? Or chronic optimism? []

    Concerning your footnote, read “The mythical man-month (Essays on Software ENgineering, by Frederik P. Brooks, Jr., 1972)”. Although focused on software projects, this gives some insight about the dynamics of projects in general. Just to give one quote:

    Optimism
    All programmers are optimists. Perhaps this modern sorcery especially attracts those who believe in happy endings and fairy god-mothers. Perhaps the hundreds of nitty frustrations drive away all but those who habitually focus on the end goal. Perhaps it is merely that computers are young, programmers are younger, and the young are always optimists. But however the selection process works, the result is indisputable: “This time it will surely run,” or “I just found the last bug.”
    So the first false assumption that underlies the scheduling of systems programming is that all will go well, i.e., that each task will take only as long as it “ought” to take.

    Good luck for the next steps!

      Thanks Joachim!
      Also for reading my footnotes.
      I feel that the quote you sent indeed fits.
      Except that THIS time it’s REALLY going to work if I only find these few last bugs… ;)
