- but only in the most trivial sense ...

So, having thought myself "cured" and decided I had written my last program, I found myself with boring and non-urgent jobs to do today.

And the thought struck me of a trivial weekly task I have that does take 5-10 minutes and needs my brain to be semi-working.
This involves some very trivial arithmetic and some date/time calculations. I decided a simple Winforms app and an absolute max of 1 hour to start, finish, publish and forget.

Combine rustiness with, surprise, surprise, an eternity playing around with foreground and background colours, font sizes, layouts etc (I do hate boring grey forms!) - 2.5 hours later ... Sigh | :sigh:

Until tomorrow when I use it in anger and decide all the above needs changing, probably for no good reason.

That was definitely my last program. Honest.
