GeneralI really like to build tools and libraries for other developers (and me) Pin

but now I've amassed an arsenal of them to do most everything I'd want to do.

One thing I liked about working in the field was I'd never run out of stuff to dev on.

Other people would have needs, and I'd find some way to automate those needs as much as possible.

It kept me busy, but now because of the above, my needs are met. I can generate lexers, parsers, state machines, i have components for implementing build tools, services, and basic console apps, for doing IO for advanced collections/dictionaries, whatever.

It's crazy. I'm running out of stuff I could use.
Real programmers use butterflies
