I just realized why programmers are always eating pizza and drinking copious amounts of Coke-a-Cola.
It's not that we like pizza or Coke particularly. Although they are both very pleasant things.
Possibly not so good for the middle-aged waistline as for the young lad that I used to be, and living the married life my routine is dictated by children and wife.
I noticed that the morning session is by far the best for productivity. Come lunch-time living in Iberia we normally have a siesta. This is in part due to the large amount of carbs in the lunch time meal.
Quite often, when deadlines that time I have tried to work through this period. Quite often with disastrous results - either I write terrible code, or don't write anything at all.
So the family's been away for the last couple of weeks, and I have to get used to living like a teenager again.
Now finally I see the benefit of the pizza and coke diet. If I am constantly topping up on pizza and Coke I can work continuously through the day.
I better just watch that belly-line!
