The Coding Itch

I have heard it said
The urge to write code is like having an itch. When the itch becomes annoying enough, you scratch it.
( If you itch a lot, does that count as "coding eczema"? If that leads to the writing of a lot of code does that count as "coding diarrhea"?

    I think if one suffers from both coding eczema and coding diarrhoea then the only reasonable course of action is to spend more time in the pub making social contact with real people again.

    The world won't take you serious when you're slathered up in medicinal creams and wrapped in diapers!
