В среду с 14:15 где-то полчаса всем ругать меня матом! Это первое собеседование, на которое меня пригласили за почти год поисков работы.

There are two types of individuals who can suffer from Exhaustive
Programming Disorder, and they lie at the two opposite ends of the spectrum
of people who make computers work.

The first is the obsessive hacker, coding (and maybe noding) through the
night and on into the early hours of the morning, fuelled by the obligatory
diet of Coke, caffeine or nicotine. This kind of EPD sufferer labours away
in front of his screen for love, for the sheer pleasure that comes from
altering *this* line just so, tweaking that function like that, and
ultimately producing a product that millions will find useful.

The other EPD sufferer is probably far more common. It is the corporate
software engineer, stuck in his cubicle, trying to iron out the latest bugs
in the mass-market, high-cost product that the marketing droids promised
would be shipping last Tuesday. Possibly also fuelled by the same
combination of junk food and cigarettes, this person's motivation is not
pride in his work, or pleasure, or a will to do good for the community, but
motivated instead by fear of unemployment, bankruptcy and homelessness.

If you think you're moving towards the wrong end, it's time to bail out.

Take it easy ;-)
