in reply to It's a problem of motivation, Bob

If you think it's already been done and it might serve no purpose, then you haven't lost any worthwhile motivation. You could continue with that project when and if you feel like it, a little at a time. It's good to have little, unimportant projects like that. They allow you to be moody and still always have a project that fits your mood. It helps if they're not all programming projects, and you could include hobbies and sports as "projects".

Interest is sparked by a good idea, and sometimes by other things, but it's not not easy. Trying to spark interest in a particular field is very limiting and harder. Sparking interest in a project that's probably useless is the hardest of all.

[choroba]: Munich is kind of close from here
[Corion]: marto: Maybe in three years it'll be Berlin again ;)
[marto]: in 3 years I may be able to go :P
[Corion]: choroba: Both teams will ponder on whether/where/how to organize things. The workshop will be mainly in German though
[Corion]: marto: Hehe ;)
[marto]: my out of working hours time is very scarce at the moment
[marto]: unfortunately for you guys I can still access PM during the day :P
[Corion]: marto: Ow, I hope that gets better soonish! But I feel some $work-timecrunch looming at my $work as well
[Corion]: marto: Ah, so you can multiplex work and PM time ;-D
[Corion]: The upside to this is that I've reduced my $work (well, $paid) time to 80%, so I'll be at $work only four days/week, which will hopefully make the crunch less crunchy on me ;)
