in reply to What type of challenges do you enjoy?

Outside programming I am fond of Cross Sums puzzles and of mazes. When I was a kid, I drew a lot of mazes and was surprised how many people found that hard to do. I don't have the vocabulary for crosswords or the patience for logic problems.

The programming projects I find most enjoyable are web site scraping scripts. I was surprised to find what I would have guessed a mundane task so enjoyable.

HTH,
Charles
