It's a problem of motivation, Bob
I always want to resurrect some programming project in my spare time to compensate for the mind-numbering corporate slave drone job I have during the week. I never come around to it. Really, internet posting is about all I use computers for....and lately that's becoming ok....I'm learning how to focus on 3D objects...slowly....
In short, I've realized I only want to spend X% amount of my time with computers, and X is pretty much darn small. I'm in this area because I like to solve problems, think, etc, and I've given up trying to write the next killer app.... gotta have some time to live too, ya know? Which brings me to my favorite hobby, violently crashing bikes into trees. It's the exact opposite of cube farming, and that's why I like it.
