Me and my work

I program. I program computers, plants, microbls, animals, people. You name it!

My Typical Day

Get in, get coffee.

Find out that my computer isn’t working.

Reboot, get coffee while it reboots.

Find out that Internet is down. Call support, get coffee while in the phone queue.

Get informed that they are aware of the problem and are working on it around the clock. Get coffee while they are working.

Brainstorm about broken computers with colleagues, over coffee…

Go home before more things break.

What I'd do with the money

I’d program you to do my will!

Fire extinguished, room not flooded. The mathematician: calculates, says “A solution exists” and sits back down. The chemist burns trying to find a thermometer…
