From a purely psychological point of view I find it interesting that one of the qualities required to be a good programmer is the habit of obsessing over problems.
I find it interesting because the question is - at what point does that become unhealthy?

I mention this because I am learning python and as part of learning I am creating a bouncy ball program where a ball bounces off objects and its trajectory needs to conform with the effect of gravity.
I find the problem solving even finds its way into my dreams.
Anyway - I am not much help here, just an observation on the tendency we have to obsess over a problem until we solve it Smile | :)
