in reply to How do you code?

I started off with BASIC which lends itself to a "top-down" approach, but these days I tend towards the XP style.

Because of my job, I can't hang around and wait for the juices to flow, I have a job to do and it needs to be done now! As a result, I tend to try and tackle the task in small sections, get the first bit working and then add the next. Sometimes it can be hard work, other times it comes easy.

While I know that this isn't exactly the XP formula, it's as close as I'm going to get.

[james28909]: i thiught you were going to say make both hands into a fist and puch yourself in the face
[atcroft]: .oO(Sorry, I probably should have said take two normal hands....)
[atcroft]: james28909: No, unless you are a politician, I wouldn't say that (and even if you are, I still probably wouldn't say that).
[james28909]: i mean how hard can it be? its just subtracting days lol
[atcroft]: james28909: What about October 5, 1582?
[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
