Jamis celebrates the completion of a project.
Can I get a refund for a minute of my time that I just wasted?
that was pretty awesome.
The time spent making this could have been better spent on other things…like not spending time on this.
All I can possibly say is wow. WOW.
I did a fist pump with you at the height of the music.
hahahaha this is best practice for sure
Jesus christ people, STOP BEING DICKS ON THE INTERNET.
Take responsibility for your own time and if you don’t think something’s worth it then certainly don’t spend 30 more seconds of your obviously precious-as-all-hell time writing a goddamned comment to tell us all about it.
For fuck’s sake.
very nice .. not like my account on basecamp :)
Worth every second.
LOL! That was the best thing I have seen all day. Very Funny!
Brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations!
remarkably dorky. in the best way possible.
Completely hilarious. Loved it.
nicely done. does that mean the oct 5 launch is proceeding as scheduled?
@Adam: Lay off the coffee dude. It makes you irritable.
I don’t think I’ve ever ticked the last item off before – people just keep adding things in just as I get there…
You should integrate this feature so that the music plays when you check off a last item…
Stupid video, and funny at the same time…
I watched it TWICE because the types of projects I work on are never finished.
That’s hilarious. I had to something similar when I got SAML working in ruby/rails. A video demo of single sign on to music. :) But this is much better done.
Thanks for only completing one project. Otherwise I would have spent all day watching that video.
click it… click it… CLICK IT!! WOO
Oh he didn’t click it. That’s kind of thing that drives one crazy.
If the last item was checked and the project is complete…Why does it still say “add item”?
I wept. Like any movie I have ever sat through, it is an idealized version of reality that I can never hope to attain.
Watched it twice.
Too funny not to!
Not your best twitt
@Adam – I can’t believe that I wasted 15 seconds of my day reading your cranky comment wherein you displayed your complete lack of a sense of humour.
I also can’t believe that I took another 30 seconds to post this reply. I guess the Internet just brings out the dick in me.
(subsequent posters are welcome for the blatant wisecrack setup above)
It’s the moment of moments! Well worthy of immense celebration.
That was epic!
Don’t we all live and breathe for moments like that… :-)
It was fun—I need to add some background music to my apps :)
You guys are really crazy :-D
You guys really need to put some easter egg in there, so something awesome happens, when a final checkbox is checked – the visuals are a little anti-climactic compared to the soundtrack :-)
WOW…. Did anyone go all hominid and fling a bone in the air whilst you were at it? Pretty awesome. I wish my job encouraged me to be that awesome at the completion of task.
Guys, don’t ya have something else to do…..
I watched it twice and I want to watch it again! Man, that was awesome!
Hey! What the hell just happened to all my contact import files?!!
This didn’t excite me, but good call Adam (above). I’m only commenting to give you props :)
Alternate music version
wow.. that’s 1:17sec i won’t get back.
there’s a ton beneath the surface of this video. his project was only 23 items. he completed it a full 4 days before the milestone, finishing several per day. the tasks are short and sweet, with no crazy explanations or instructions. nice model, and nice example of eating your own dog food. inspiring.
And have you bought the rights to use this copyrighted music in an official 37signals video? I can hear the RIAA knocking on your door already….
Ok. THAT was funny.
What a disappointment. The moment I opened the post, I thought “oh nice, a minute and a few secs of video, that’s proper 37sig style, short and to the point, let’s see what they have to announce”...
What a waste of everybody’s time…
err, he needs to get out more …
Couldn’t it have been further divided into mousedown and mouseup scenes?
It bought a smile to my face thanks.
Now if you go ahead and build that into Basecamp…. well…
