No need - I could/would jump ship if I didn't enjoy coding, especially with the small gestalt formed. As I noted in an earlier post, I could fart in their general direction*, and walk away.

It may comfort you to know that I knew this was an American Indian quote. Attributions vary.

Hope for the best; expect the worst; and you'll never be disappointed. My thought have turned to what actions (bureaucratic) I should take to optimize my situation should the End of Days arrive. (E.g., a visit to SSA site as I need to know my substantial income years count; how much I'd get from unemployment insurance; which investments to liquidate first, and when, based upon income, should I need to dip in vs. IRA required withdrawal, and when, Etc).

And - as a grandfather, more time to remake the grand-kids in my image (snicker).

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
