There is an amount of LOCs a programmer can code. I believe when they find the Universal Equation they'll be able to tell how many LOCs a given programmer will be able to code.
However, there are factors that can increase that number. For some people it's brownies. To others it's coke.
But anyway, 4 litters of coke later, all our tickets are closed.
I do need to sleep, but there's so much caffeine in my body now that I just can't.
Speaking of tickets, Trac is a wonderful tool. Praise the Trac gods.
Coding is like riding a bike.
You stop coding and start managing full time, and after some 6 months you get back to coding. Say that during those 6 months (in this case, way more than that) you didn't have the possibility of coding a single line.
When you do get back to coding, trivial things are no longer present in your brain. 5 minutes after you start hacking you're asking yourself: do I need a comma between the filehandle and whatever I'm printing?
After a couple of hours, it all gets back to us.
A couple of hours more and you're finally in the zone, that final frontier in our geeky brains that we all adore.
Man... I love Perl.
On top of it all, I've been sick all week long.
