    //comments...

    comments are for the programmer... no? so... how many of you... like me... hold your comments so sacred that you wouldn't give your source to just anyone...? i do... for sake of me typing something personal that relates [somehow] to code...

    any ideas? thx!

    Oh yeah...

    I hardly ever put comments in excpect if I have to stand back and map the program flow when debugging.....

    Due to this I must spend at least 30-60 minutes scratching my head when revisiting old code. I suppose this is due to me not having a proper teacher who would have forced me early on to use helpful things like comments. Books are good to learn at your own speed, but damn, they are lax on some points!!

[either i'm bragging, or me and no-one have similar programming... muahahaha]

    If anyone else is going to read my code, I delete all the comments and change every variable to 1 or 2 letters, depending on how many there are.
