in reply to (OT) Do monks get married?

December 31st was our 4 year anniversary and our son is just over 2.
This raises an interesting point for me. Look at every programmer you know, are any of them Jerks? Not socially inept, that usually comes out in the wash, but really Jerks? Is it possible to be an ass and still write code?

    Yell yeah. Actually I'd say about 70% of them are. I also have found a correlation between being a "Jerk" programmer and writing unmaintainable, ugly, overall low-quality code.

    If you're confident in what you do and approach your tasks with a positive attitude, you tend to improve faster.

    Cool! Another monk got married on a given date for tax reasons. *grins* And, here I was, thinking I was the only one...

    We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

    Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.
