A friend of mine recently said something I considered wise - "consider decisions without concern for money."


I'm good at this, probably because of a fundamental distaste for money. An employer once told me money is freedom so chase money and my first thought was to cut out the middle man. I worked less ever since then. Laugh | :laugh: Though now I'm paid more.

I'll never be rich because of it, but I've known several rich people but no happy ones.

I have a hunch it will continue to miss the mark until we move past computers as Linear Bounded Automata which I simply do not think are up to the task.
Real programmers use butterflies

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
