  • At least some of us do. Out of 11 people at work, I'm the official geek. Not because I watch BSG and know what 42 really means...but because I have my own servers, host my own crap, program for another 4 hours most nights. Programming is my life, not my job...and that's how I'm almost always ahead of the curve because...well, I'm a loser like that. ;-)

    I found over the years, it's the same way with most things, even music. I played drums for 14 years and was pretty damn good (I blame drum corps). You can alw
    • I am not I completely understand what you mean by living as a programmer. I understand the drummer comparison, having played the "drums" myself - and I still do.

      I read living as a programmer, as loving what you do as a programmer and yes I do that - but programming many hours is not possible for me, due to two constraints.

      I think I have an upper limit of how many hours I can program each week. I can stretch it, not continuously though. This limit is around 30 hours. If I became a faster and better programmer these hours would of course be more effective, so this is what I aim for. Improving my skills so my programmings hours are more efficient and more productive.

      Another constraint is my two boys of age 0 and 2 demanding attention, I am looking so much forward to the day when they can start to use computers - more effectively :)
