For me, fun is taking a program, language, whatever and making it do things it's designer never envisioned it doing. It comes in handy when I'm asked to do something a little outside the norm as part of my job.

comment Co-worker renamed all of my queries
Good points. If the naming scheme is good, than both parties will be able to use it (once they get used to it) no matter who came up with it.

@Ant: If the OP's example is the whole story, I think that might be a bit harsh. If there is more to it (or they never should have ha edit rights in the first place) you may be right.

@mouviciel: That sort of drags in the question of, once you write the program, why not make it available to others. I suspect that many of the free programs out there are not written primarily for distribution, bit rather distributed as an afterthought.
