mrainey's story of how he overcame math block to go on to code math-related programs was inspirational. See here: http://www.donationc...38.msg35178#msg35178
Made me wonder how many of the other members of this site have had careers that followed unpredictable, serendipitious, paths. It would really be good for the people just starting out to hear how hanging on and paying attention to chance circumstances can lead to unexpected pleasures. Anyone have a story to share?
