How many monitors do you use while coding:
- None of them - I don't code.
- 0 - Ticker-tape is a purer representation of a Turing Machine.
- 1 - A laptop screen or single monitor desktop workstation. Frills are for wussies.
- 1 - And it's cracked. Yes, I like practicing my trade while laying on a bed of nails, too. (You know who you are.)
- 2 - The standard dev kit suits me fine (so says management).
- 3 - Our systems are so interconnected and API's unwieldy that fewer than three monitors wouldn't present enough insight into what I'm working on.
- 4 - Everyone else has two or three. I'm not like everyone else.
- 5 - This configuration reminds me of the 1987 5-cylinder VW Passat my parents let me drive in high school.
- 6 - I saw such a thing on the Internet, and had to have it.
- 7 - I need all the luck I can get, for this code to work.
- 8 - Because my power strip had eight outlets available.
- 9 - A 3x3 monitor array was the the most I was able to fit into my Faraday shielded SHTF headquarters (known to the rest of the world as my mom's basement).
- More than nine - And most of them are just displaying graphs and mock code designed to make the boss think I'm actually doing something critical, and so complex that he couldn't hope to comprehend, so he won't bother asking.

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
