Taste, confusion

This morning my first sip of tea tasted like old coffee.  I used one of those plastic ‘travel mugs’ for my tea in the morning and sometimes, no matter how many times you wash it, the flavor of old coffee never quite leaves.  Maybe I’m just overly sensitive, but if I wanted to drink coffee, I would have, so having my tea taste like bad coffee wasn’t exactly the bright point of my morning, but once I got used to it, it was OK.  So while I’ve been sitting here pondering what I’m going to write about this morning, sipping my tea, I was checking out an article on Coldfusion security.  I was pleased to know that we do most of the things already (or at least I do, I shouldn’t speak for the other programmers) and some of the topics generally do not apply to the work we do, so it had a nice calming effect.  “Yes you are on the right path.”  Now if only I felt that way about Unit Testing.  Not that I should expect to know everything about it in a week’s time of my first attempts, but I’m finding the lack of real world examples a little difficult.  I can see the point and use if your functions need to do some concrete logic.  The basic examples of applying the addition of two integers are great, but it’s not often that that’s all I’ll be using a function for.  In fact, I don’t think that I’ve ever used a function for that.  So as I fish through some more material, I’m hoping that my questions will be summarily answered and I’ll feel like I am adequately knowledgeable in short time.
