My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
I'd like a codometer to count all the lines of code I write during the day. It should keep track of lines that get kept and lines that get removed. I don't know what that information would tell me, but I'm curious about it. It should probably work independent of the IDE, since I often use several during the day.

I'd like it if not only you would stop stealing my focus, but also provide updates in the corner of the screen. When I've put you in the background, you should let me know when you're done processing so I can come and click the "next" button. On top of that, give me an option to have you click next automatically for me.

Like 'considered harmful' being considered harmful as a cliché, I'm starting to have a distinct distaste for website or product names of the class e-removr. Or ending-vowel-removr when the last letter is an 'r'. The first time it seemed refreshing and perhaps a bit cute. By now, I'm starting to wish someone would flush them down the shittr. (Well, the names at least.)

Someone found a set of bicycle pedals that fit under the desk for me. Excellent to be able to get a little exercise while I do my morning blog-reading. I couldn't find one the last time I looked, but I did this time. I'm not sure if mine are the same, or how it will work, but I will let you know when I do.

Today is December 5th. Have you sent me your code for the contest?

The code-o-meter is a neat idea, though I assume you mean it for Windows. Still it shouldn't take long to construct. A few hours at the most and that could even include the percentage of time spent with which windows active.

Actually, if I could find one to coordinate via webservice that worked on both Windows and Macs, that would be best since I work on both.

But you're right - it shouldn't take too long to make one. Maybe one of these days - it's not incredibly high on my seemingly overwhelming list of things to do =)
