Programmers Don't Do Any Work

Work = Force x Distance

We don't use any force and we don't move anything over a distance. So we get paid to do no work. Funny, it sure feels like work.

We deal with derivatives. You know - what will change. x and y are easy, it's dx/dy which is fascinating.

Real or imnagined, it's still work.

That's one of the reasons I use a stock IBM PS2 keyboard.

When I "press a key", I expect some effort to be required.  And when that key goes down, I expect a reasonably loud "click!".

If that's not Force x Distance, I don't know what is.

The hell with Lines Of Code metrics -- let's use Number Of Keypresses!  Now you're talking.
