Let me fix it for you: "Half my morning every day" :)

Coding Horror, and The Daly WTF at http://thedailywtf.com/ (safe for work, despite the name)

Funny thing about this particular blog post is that a non-developer friend of mine once corrected me. I called myself a "code monkey" and he promptly came back with, "More like code magpie". He also pointed this article out to me this morning (as I wasn't down that far yet in my RSS reader).

"More like code magpie".

Oh, absolutely. I've looked at more cool and shiny stuff to code with than I'll ever be able to learn, let alone use for a good purpose. And it *is* overwhelming - to the point that, since coding is not my paid work, it's almost all collecting shiny stuff and ever less frequently actually using it.

Um, tinjaw... I don't know if you're going to like it, but my latest shiny trinket: IPython :)

Yes, I am slowly learning to use it. Have you seen the IPython videos on ShowMeDo? they are a nice overview of what it can do.
