Real programmers set the universal constants at the start such that the universe evolves to contain the disk with the data they want.[1]

No, I'm not like that. But I'm trying to suck less every year.

comment Is 4-5 years the “Midlife Crisis” for a programming career?
@joshperry: Sometimes you just can't "move on" from the "doom" place you work. Maybe you're married, maybe you live in a city where this is the only company that pays well, you have a son, etc... it's difficult to just say "you should look another place to work". Sometimes is better to escape from reality doing personal projects than quitting. You try to convince yourself that a lot of people work in professions that they don't enjoy, but someone has to do it, so why is the end of the world if you're one of them?
