Programming is like a

April 17, 2011

I spent 1 hour programming and 8 hours debugging on a project at work today.  That’s a whole lotta sitting on me bottom!

Programming is like a contraption: it’s a beauty when it works, and a bitch to get it working just right. And you want to get it to work right, so you spend 9 hours sitting and debugging.

I recently came across this article, you might enjoy reading it:

…time spent sitting trumped physical activity when you looked at the impact of both of these factors together.  So no matter that you were physically active, the longer you sat the greater the chances you would die.

craaaaaap…and I’m not physically active either…

Can somebody please write a program that refutes this research?
