A recent monestary poll, "I mainly write Perl at...
", got me to thinking about situations where I've found myself coding in unexpected places.
In that discussion, gryphon related an interesting programming tale about capturing a coding idea on a piece of driftwood on a beach when no other materials were on hand for the task. I responded with a couple of anecdotes from my recent travels. Once I sketched out an abstraction layer in my travel log while staying in a remote village in Flores, Indonesia; another time I had to patch one of my modules while riding out a rainstorm on the coast of Vietnam.
So this got me to thinking...surely there's a ton of tales out there about strange coding locales; if not a place or situation, how about bizarre circumstances?
Come forth and regale your fellow Brethren with rarefied coding tales of intrigue!
