Coding somewhat satisfies the part of me what used to go into crafts; when some little program works, I feel the same way I do when a drawing comes out well.
I have to hold myself back. I actually make more commands than folks really need.
I enjoy having the whole MUSH before me. It's like when you're in your car at the top of a hill with a long, empty road ahead of you, horizon in sight, no cars between you and it. It's all there, you can see everything, you can do anything.
It's so much fun.
