Ha, good read. I'd get swordfighter for sure, I automatically hit clean/build after every save, even if it's just comments.

Great. First Xbox, then iPhone, now this. If it ever does happen, I'm going to go crazy. Before you know it, Windows will have achievements (Hardcore Gamer, Pornmaster, Deleted Sys32).

yey, I'm a Visual Studio loser




Job Security

Sword Fighter (fucking around with InstallShield, urgh)

Shotgun Debugging (unit testing without proper tools)

The Mathematician (the name is fitting)

The Multitasker

Procedural Programmer (interfacing to legacy software can be fun!)

The Poet (porting legacy software is also fun)

The Enterprise (with all due respect, the computer was a piece of crap)

Rage Quit (who hasn't?)

Look Ma (hee hee fun)

The Architect (easy)

The Right Way

The Defender (sometimes you just get tired of telling your teammates a String can be null)

Pokemon Programming (and I was not pleased)

Gimme back my ASM

I'm Sorry

The Matrix (... :( )

Warm Bath

Old School (sometimes I hate teams)

Paying the Bills

Every Option Considered (they were bitwise and teammates hated they had to OR them together)

I'd probably have these:

The Sword Fighter
Spaghetti Monster
Pasta Chef
The Poet
The Enterprise
Highway to Hell
The Explainer
TPS Reports
The Defender
I’m Sorry
The Matrix
The Daredevil
Warm Bath
Old School
The Cloner
Every Option Considered

Some of these are pretty bad and I probably wouldn't admit to doing these in public(like the 100 static objects).
