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

It's funny. I've been working on a way of providing CGI-type programming for stand-alone applications. I worked on it for weeks and finally got a framework up and running. I also used it to learn TT and SQLite. My wife practically threw the laptop out. I was even working on something for me - a personalized version of Quicken.

Then, I got a bad case of the stupids and showed it to my team leader at work. He immediately gave me permission to flesh out the framework on work time, cause he saw massive benefits from it. Now, I have to force myself to work on it outside work time, and I still don't get very far.

But, I can spend hours analyzing a Go position (especially in my game against corenth). I can spend hours reading my favorite authors. And, in a few weeks, I'll dust off my CGI standalone and work on it at home. Maybe, I'll even wrap some process around it. (Putting it in CVS was a first start, I guess...)

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
