    ...when you have (a lot) free time to actually code something cool. But no... Every time I fire up debugger and coding tools I get bored and I'll close them asap. I really want to finish these projects but so far I haven't succeed :)

    Not sure if any of you feel the same or is it just me.

    Perhaps it is just you. Go for walk, do swimming or other sports and go back to your programming. Let us know your outcome.

    I am also like you. I am not a full-time programmer, learned vb.net on my own and a kind of hobby programmer. Decided to do a small application for stock screening and doing it ON and OFF for quite a long time. Feel the same way when I sit for programming, immediately get bored. And looking for some help all the time, I easily get bored.

    I love it when the guy watches the older bloke lob his monitor into the next cubicle, then just takes another sip of his coffee.
    :)

    P.S. Just ask yourself; "What would Jon do?"
    This, this is what Jon would do:

    For truly effective drunk coding, use a voice to text application.

    @LongJohnDingDong
    Me too, sometimes, feel that way. Your head tells you it's time to complete that task ... but your mood and your body think something else :)

    You start reading news, hearing music, turning on pc just to click here and there trying to make a sense of your day ... and when it's too late, you realized you wasted your time AGAIN ! And the project you cared so much still lies unsolved. Okay, you guessed well, that's exactly what I'm doing now, eheheh :D

    As @Wonderman wrote, doing something else helps a lot!
    Mental discipline will help (us) to act better and finish our beloved project(s). :emoji_thumbsup:

    @JonArbuckle
    Fantastic video. That's pretty much my daily feeling at work, ahahahah :D
    It gave me some nice ideas to try too ;)

    By the way, now I finally understand why cathode tube monitors got discontinued :p

    Best Regards,
    Tony
