    I think it'll be the time people buy your software.

    though i haven't sold anything or rather made anything that could be sold

    so right now it'll be the time it executes without any problem.

    Just seeing that little "----jGRASP: operation complete" at the bottom of my screen makes me happier than anything else.

    Getting the pseudo-code done. That's the hardest part. After that the coding is pretty simple. The design document is the real challenge.

    its hard to deside when you've designed enough and can start coding without some type of doubt looming over you...

    I view coding as a challenge. The problem is whatever your trying to code. Logically then, the solution would be your code. When you have a fully functional solution, the program, I feel success is achieved, and I have solved the problem.

    I can find a way to make 15 stupid errors on a hello world program. When I write code I don't stop after every 50 lines and try to complie it, I just slam out hundreds of lines of code in one sitting and end up with a buttload of errors and wonder why it doesn't work. I end up spending half of my time debugging it, and sometimes I decide to start over. When I finally get it to run without bugs, it's a huge releif and I stop beating the .......... out of my computer.

    I usually give it a few quick cuffs even then just for good measure. It pays to be sure.

    Happiest moment: It runs for more than 3 1/2 microseconds without trying to overwrite some vital part of my hardrive or develop 16,000 memory leaks each the size of a small dog and able to (i swear) physically eat holes in my disk.

    ...

    Okay so i'm a little annoyed at my current app... Looks like another sleepless night.

    Nope. I was really weird. I kicked it on the side.
