I do program in my spare time, but that is not because I find programming fun [any longer].

I program because I encounter lots of tasks in fery different fields where some software can be a nice tool to solve another issue. Like keeping track of my music collection. Like illustrating how real life objects might interact, in a small simulation model. Like making a workable backup system for my computer. Yes, a backup system is directly related to the computer, but what I strive for is to have the software completed and available, not the programming of it.

Maybe I want to "solve problems". But those problems are not in multiple inheritance and sofware paradigms and self modifying code and patterns. Those are not the real problems. Even if my problem solving uses software as a hammer and a saw, the real problem has little to do with the compiler. I care for some real problems, not for the tools as such.
