this response makes me believe you've possibly worked in tech support at some point in time.

Formally, no. But looking back it seems that I've somehow informally fallen into that role, for those around me, almost everywhere I've worked.

My favorite 'tech support' story: Re: Lost in the Translation

FWIW: I think that the 'secret ingredient' between a good programmer and a great one, is intuition.

(That doesn't mean I think I am a great programmer, my intuition is far too sporadic.)

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
