"Think outside the box" is a common idiom I hear thrown around quite a bit in my profession. It really started to bother me enough that I decided to look into it a bit, deeper than the "creative thinking" definition it's been used for. In my search, I found an article about understanding the box instead of just thinking outside of it. That seemed to stick for me.

So, instead of always trying to "think outside the box" I decided to make the best of the box that I am in. I had a blast doing that with the refrigerator and oven-range boxes as a kid. And you know what? I had the best damn Whirlpool Oven-Range drive-through restaurant in that neighborhood! So why must it be different now? Put the lid back on and let me explore.

I am a software developer, and in my world the box sometimes grows a bit more complicated, but that makes it a bit more exciting. So this blog is my opportunity to share some knowledge with others to help them see the drive-through restaurant hiding in the oven-range box they were just handed.
