noun - a paper cone formerly put on the head of a dunce at school as a mark of disgrace.
As a self-confessed reclusive introvert and computer and smartphone enthusiast... I work very hard at teaching myself everything there is to know about computers! And, at 43, I figure I'm about half way done with my education...
However, where I am at with computing, as a whole, is pretty exciting! I spend most of my days building the "toys" that I want to play with! ... n' then I give them away! (So I can make room for more toys!)
I guess you could say I'm a bit of a 'purist' when it comes to coding. My favorite, most used program is notepad.exe and I prefer coding from scratch. 'Free hand' coding is the best! That's when you have a very specific idea but, it's only in your mind!
I like to sit down and bang it out in one sitting because, there's nothing quite like knowing what your code is going to like and watching it come to life! I especially like those awesome moments when I'm not even close!
But then again... if it was always that easy we wouldn't be called...
