I found a pretty good article on the signs of a good programmer. I fit a lot of those, except maybe being in a variety of technologies. I pretty much stick to things that have good documentation (such as programming languages). I do as little hacking as possible, and by hacking I mean things that were never meant to be used. I started programming long before I learned it in a classroom setting though, and it’s never been “just a day job,” in fact, over 75% of the programming I’ve done has been unpaid.
In other news, I should be getting a new video card tomorrow… my computer will be complete, mwahaha (An evil laugh felt appropriate, I don’t know why). I also got talked into adding B-vitamins and calcium into my daily regimen by the guy at GNC, and I haven’t seen anything but positive results.
