I can't remember the last time I wrote any code outside of work. After a recent holiday I had managed to wean myself off the Playstation2 and was about to do some work on my little open-source project (including re-licensing to LGPL which I'd promised to do weeks ago) when someone lent me a great cricket game. Now I keep playing it until the sun comes up (which is when I notice the time and that I have to work in about 4 hours). I must get some more sleep, and then I'll find time to do fix the outstanding problems with PStreams. Yeah right.
async: i've found an alternative to overusing parentheses when writing (and thinking!) - which i do too - use hyphens - recently I find they map better to my train of thought - but that's probably just because it's about to be derailed by lack of sleep.
I would get an early night now, but have promised someone I'd help them with some DV editing. Why do people assume that because you're a programmer you'd love to install PCI cards for them and arse about with broken drivers and try to get Adobe Premiere working on a Celeron with only 64MB RAM that's already struggling to breaking point under Win2k? I might be able to write C++ in my sleep, but that doesn't mean I want to wrestle with bloody windoze instead of sleeping! :)
