    Software design, even before writing a lick of code, is a highly creative process. Much like designing a new building or office space. Granted there are rules and boundaries to follow but it can be a lot of fun.

    You're right in that programming and problem solving are very creative. Manipulating the limited vocabulary and strict syntax of a programming language to some elegant solution is a rush. The tug of war between the creative side and the logical side is especially strong in this. For a while I had to set an alarm to 'wake me up' from that world I went to while writing code so I wouldn't miss my ride home at the end of the day.

    Programming has changed a lot since there are gobs of solid modules around now without the memory restraints there used to be.

    I now enjoy getting into that creative other world while painting and am pretty much just using the computers as an end user. I've gotten tired of endlessly learning new languages and keeping up with old ones, although I'm afraid I'm going to have to learn some more advanced html, java and flash programming for some changes to our website. Maybe it's time for 'getting the xxxx out of Dodge'. :)

    Working with cars and motorcycles give some of the same troubleshooting enjoyment as programming can.

    Do you have a website with some of your computer work?

    thnaks for posting and sharing

    well, i just started swimming once a week with the team... as in, not even officially a member yet. it's the middle of their season, but i attended a swim clinic and the coach invited me to swim with them, so i took him up on it. i plan to officially join during the next cycle... if we have a meet against beverly team in the future, i'll let you know! :)

    lol about the lime color because it's unfortunately not my house! i was visiting a friend over the weekend. i love that color too! i have always had a love affair with the blue gas flames... when i'm back there i'll try and take some more shots incorporating your suggestions. thanks for the great idea to do that! i have yet to do a "series" so it'd be fun to try it out...

    cheers! and as always thanks for posting nat. your pics are always great.

    here's another outlet
    I've done a few Tshirts for friends around Easter time and such and for them to give as gifts at Xmas, just for fun...this was one of the designs...

    the original image was cut out of matboard and was 30" by about 48" (got destroyed in a move...) this is all that's left of it

    the cross was made by placing masonry nails on a scanner and scanning...

    just thought i'd share since there has been a few drawing and paintings. :)
