I must agree with you. I do enjoy working alone. I might not fit the perfect definition of a lone wolf, as we have one other developer, but our projects are our own. I have been working at a water/wastewater utility district for over 10 years. I have created and maintained the Utility Billing System, the front counter cash receipting system, the inventory system, and the operations facility maintenance system. I love the variety and the freedom I have, I sometimes wish there were more resources for testing, and even peer review of the work I do.

I gladly call myself a hack, just kind of piecing it all together. I somehow manage to make things work, thanks to sites like CodeProject.com were samples abound. I love walking through the office and seeing people use the applications We have created together. I tell them they are the designers and I am just the carpenter who tries to build their vison. I wake up every morning excited to go to work and I don't know if that is the norm. I am truely blessed.
