Riddle Me This

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't programmers just highly intelligent people paid to play with lego?

Programmers are not necessarily highly intelligent, and legos never caused me quite this much stress...
Real programmers should have a modicum amount of intelligence. And non-programmers need some intelligence to bluff their way through management (ie. Dilbert's Wally). I guess the qualifier highly is in question. Heh.
Legos should cause stress when you're being asked to build a big enough structure while under time presure. :P

It can be... but not all the time. There are those special cases like:
- Dealing with non-technical managers.
- Maintaining legacy code written by non-technical people in a crappy language.
- Unrealistic time schedules.
and so on and so forth.
*blinks* Those are special cases? And here I thought it was all like that...

Re: ha ha
The first two are special cases-- they are uncommon nowadays. Unrealistic scheduling on the other-hand... I don't know... that happens often, when others keep adding new features to a realistic schedule.
Of course, this could also mean that I am in a special circumstance, and the above cases mentioned are normal...

Re: ha ha
I only have to deal with case two, sort of. Except the code was written by technical people in a decent language. But it's still unpleasant to deal with.

22:51...has someone been drinking? ;)
Though I'm working in CAD so you're not far off.

If it appears to be that game brings to employer a real profit in a planned period of time. If not, then those "highly intelligent people" can be fired because they were playing too bad :)
