What got you into programming? What do you program for? What kinds of programs do you make?
Outside games, other programs I make are to automate some tasks. When I process my music for my MP3 player, I need dozens of WAV files with only the sample rate changed to convert to MP3 (since there's no other way to change the speed). I wrote a program to generate these WAV files which is over 12 times faster than doing it manually (one file every 1.6 seconds instead of every 20 seconds, writing 50 MiB/sec). The other is to brighten and crop video frames (as BMP images) for my videos I record of stunts I do in my video games (like getting tossed up at 2400 mph in Super Monkey Ball 2 and attempting to make the goal (the clock is disabled, the only cheat used or needed)).
