I'm sure a few of you can relate to the article... personally I've spent days working on just parts of my own personal projects. Almost nothing beats the feeling when it's 4am and your code is finally working. The only problem is no one else is awake to see your accomplishment. Anyway, I've got some work to do, goodnight all!

"What we can't figure out is that with 1000 channels and the successful rise of reality TV what are all these people watching? Guess Alfred Hitchcock was right -- Television is like the invention of indoor plumbing. It didn't change people's habits. It just kept them inside the house."
