After several years of experience what do you think of computer programming in general?

90% boredom and 10% excitement.

You should be ashamed. Someone as good as you should atleast enjoy it. :(

For me, it depends on the mood im in. Sometimes im very excited to sit down and code, and other times I loath it.

Hmm, when im coding for school or work im bored, but when im doing something that im writing for me then im all about it, now if i had a fun job maybe it would be different.

There is a big difference between coding what you feel like and what you are paid to code. You can't give up, change if you don't enjoy it or not solve the problem / bugs. Plus you must work to a deadline. Sometimes you must work with people you don't like or agree with, part of any job.

Spending about 50hrs a week for a few years can dampen your enthusiasm for anything.

Beter than anything else I have done though (the pay is greater than most things I have done) as it is a mental challenge.

Yeah, but it's up to us to make our jobs as developers fun. My main job is developing DB apps ( almost as borings as writing video drivers ) but I find ways to make it fun. Slipping little easter eggs in the payroll system and accounting system (harmless, but extremely funny) make it all worthwhile. :D

I enjoy it thoroughly, which is why I get home from work and program things that I want to. :) The boring part is just to put food on the table and pay the electic bill so that I can code at home :D
