I have come to realize that whatever I do won't benefit anyone, except possibly myself. The same goes for the coding I do in my spare time: The software will never get out of my personal PC.


That's exactly why I work for The Man and can't live off of software I actually would like to work on...

Remember how (un)important you considered near-retirement people when you were young. Accept that today, you have become as unimportant as you were thinking then.


Yeah, no. You can't generalize people's thinking process like this. Unlike the smartass know-it-alls I see everywhere (now and back then), I've always appreciated the value of near-retirement people (as you call them). My dad worked as a mechanic for 40+ years, and I call tell you this much: he used to fix cars. Today's younger mechanics just replace parts.

There are parallels in the software industry, but I really don't want to get into that right now...
