...but shorter, and more catchy.

I've just completed about 8hrs of solid coding that involved tearing into the guts of my code, touching about 20 modules, ripping out a component and replacing it with a different (3rd party) component whose documentation is of the "documentation is Evil" variety, plus a bunch of refactoring and configuration changes and the first time I ran the code it...just...worked.

Isn't that the best feeling in the world. It's like everything stops, and everything is perfect just in that moment.

We need a word for it.
