If your work isn't documented, it is worthless. This is my new modus operandi. A couple years of silence is largely due to working projects with failed documentation. It is incredibly draining.

I spent my 20's shirking documentation; excuses like, 'the code is self-documenting (I am decent at effective minimal commenting),' 'this is a one time deal.' There were always reasons not to document.

I am paying for that now.

So do yourself a favor and document. It is a little something to make certain that two parties have reached an understanding. It is a little something to help those that follow you. Sure, it is mundane, but documentation is for heroes.
