    > why not

    No time or ideas

    > why not do it so that the user gets as much kick as you did programming it, using it...?

    I think that should be a goal for everyone making programs, anywhere... (I'd like to think the users using my programs at work experience as much pain using it as I did making it )

    I program for fun, when i have the time... which isn't often... but i'm at the point now where i don't really have any ideas of what to program... and if I do, I'm not sure I could do what my ideas present... lots of learning with not enough time to learn it in.

    Nono, if you ever had to use the compiler he worked with you'd wish torment upon the designers, and that everyone who used your program would come down with ebola. Just a thought.

    >>You can't eat "fun."

    No, but you can bite me... (Wow, I love not making sense)

    Who says programming isn't fun? I know that everytime I write a program I have fun, regardless of whether or not it gives me trouble.
