I watch my favorite television shows off of Netflix in between coding to pass the time. I sometimes play music while coding too.

Knowing how preoccupied programmers are in front of their computers, I would like to ask a this question. How often do you guys find time to pleasure yourself, if you know what I mean. ;)/>

Listen to Nick Reboot, listen to a Pandora station (Anamanaguchi for the win, most of the time), much on Fritos, have a Tab or a Mountain Dew (an obvious Code Monkeys reference, thanks to Jonathan Coulton).

I code to pass the time so if i do anything else im distracted from coding, I keep my blood sugar up with lolipops and super malt, I think its keeping my blood sugar up, maybe taste is the only sense that i can enjoy and doeskin distract me from what im doing

Mostly to pass the time, I code. When I get to a point in my code where I need a break from it, or just having issues with something in my code I always find it useful to step away for a little while and read up on issues people are having here, and help them if I can. Helping people with their issues, helps to pass the time as well as when I'm stuck, it keeps my mind on the subject of code and usually causes me to fix the issue I'm currently having.

I tend to code and have forums open on the other screen, just trying to not get too distracted!
