Joy of Programming
Computer programming has three emotional appeals:
~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
- I can have infinite do-overs. The final result betrays absolutely nothing of how many tries it took me to get it right. It is not like drawing that leaves ugly smudges.
- It is quite possible to create a program perfect in the sense you cannot think of a single thing to improve it.
- If your leave a computer program for a year and come back to it, it is exactly as you left it. Everything else in life deteriorates.
