What do you do?

Posted 13 April 2010 - 05:48 PM

SO what do you do when you are in the middle of a huge project and you just don't want to go anymore. I've been working on this project for years, but it jsut isn't fun anymore. I just hate to let all my hard work go to nothing.

Should I start a new smaller project or put down programming altogether for a while?

If it's a personal project and you are not enjoying it, why continue? If it is a business project or a resume builder, then I would work to bring it to closure, as it will look better that way.

Me personally, I prefer this method:
2 H2O + 4 CN- --> 4 HCN + O2

Mercilessly beat innocent children and club baby seals for the lulz. That usually motivates me pretty well.

Cn != CN. You are a programmer- you should know that this is case sensitive.

@NeoTifa: Is the following accurate:
Person innocent_children = dreamInCode.getMemberList().getGloin();

Hydrocopernicic acid vs. Hydrocyanic acid? Sorry, but I'm not feeling it.

Better to remain quiet and appear a fool than to open my mouth and remove all doubt.

Previous chemistry-based comment rescinded, hopefully before the science geek backlash. :)

If you bubble Cyanide gas through water, Oxygen is a by-product.

@BenignDesign: All sins forgiven. :D

@KYA: I didn't know that. Scratch that; Cn == Uub, which is radioactive. :smartass:
