GeneralNeato code versus attention getting code on CP Pin

So I was looking through my articles because I was digging up a link for someone, and I realized that the code that I thought was the most blaise was almost consistently the code that got the most attention.

Well I've been looking for some ideas for another article/project, and what I keep coming back to is

How about a b+ tree in C#? That would pretty neat. Database like indexing in your C# stuff.

But i know it wouldn't be appreciated as much as if i wrote some sort of webserver (like i did) or a UI widget (like i didn't).

So I have to ask myself what am i really looking for here? Well I did find that i like it when people actually *use* my stuff, so getting a few stars on a github project or a few downloads here is gratifying. It makes the effort worth it, to be honest.

*sigh*

maybe I'll shelve the B+ tree and look for something that's more of a shiny object.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
