comment How to stay in the zone after finishing a task?
@Click Upvote Just an application that doesn't have a specific purpose, so you can try stuff out. A proverbial "sandbox". Example: Suppose your language of choice is C# .Net and you want to know how a Duplex WCF Service works; you can use your sandbox to code an actual, working solution with some really simple data. When you learn how that tech works, you can either save that sandbox under a specific name (Like WCFDuplexSandbox) or you can just nuke the sandbox and start over. It's a playground for programmers :-)

Same with me Jeremy. I am doing a lot of Silverlight now, so there's always a Silverlight Sandbox, a WPF Sandbox, and then a command-line sandbox.

Flexible work hours and telecommuting FTW. These are big.
