I spend about an hour everyday on this forum. I am amazed by the variety of inputs. Some are real fun to read and some very interesting.


Similarities between Prostitution and Programming : was real fun to read and most of the comments made me laugh so much.

Yep! I come into office @7.00am and get most of work done by 10.00am. I usually spend 10-15mins chunks as breaks (4-6) and leave home @8.00pm! Not much of a social life though.

Bob, my man, you need to get a life. JOS used to be fun not anymore! I am sure 99.99% of people in this forum would agree.

Wiser,

I will have to agree with you. The level of trolling and flaming were minimal in the past, but recently I got torn a new one on these forums when I was trying to have a discussion about a topic that I felt strongly about. I am hesitant about posting anything because I think that even my helpful advice will be flamed and shot-down.

G:

My perspective is that whether I agree with your posts or not, whether I like them or not, there is value to their existance. If you are silenced by your critics, we've lost something important.

As for 99.9% of this forum being useless, I'm gratified if I find one thing on the forum that teaches me something. every time I surf over here.

Heh.  Big deal.  Give me a Nobel Prize, and I'll be a rugged individualist, too.

This is a real cool forum. And since the threads vary from the brilliant to the down right humourous, it is a must visit for me. Helps me get back to work after a long period of programming etc.
