in reply to how do you express coding-pleasure?

My pleasure comes from seeing my code used in ways I never thought of. Why ?

Two reasons

  • my code is being used - yay
  • its good/robust enough to be retasked to some area I didnt envision

I think the 'stangest' feeling of pleasure I got was when I was told that the data entry operators had changed their work habits to maximise their 'statistics', as reported by my new performance management tool - somehow, without knowing anything about my code, but just seeing their performance reports, they started 'adapting' or 'evolving' new ways of doing their data entry (keying) so that their stats were higher without them actually working any harder - fascinating

use brain;

[Corion]: 1nickt: I bought a 2015 XPS 13, which is a very nice and shiney (and somewhat overpriced) machine, but I think it's still better priced than an Apple machine. Now it just has to hold up 10 years like the old one did ;)
