my first real nightmare in years -- scarier than zombies.

I woke up this morning to my first real nightmare in years beyond counting. I'm standing on a three-dimensional map containing chess-like pieces which represent resources on a network. I'm trying to lay out all the pieces in a non-cluttered manner so that someone looking down on the map can understand it.

While I'm moving objects, some of them randomly get up and move themselves. Sometimes after looking away, I find that pieces have created connections to other pieces that weren't there before. I'm rushing around trying to settle the pieces down and prevent any more changes.

This probably tells you far too much about what my day job is like right now ;-)
