Here's a painting of some characters from a fantasy/Western novel I started working on recently. I know, they don't exactly look like cowboys...or witches/wizards, for that matter.

Everything you need to know about the faddishness of modern JS

Typos in config files have to be the single most annoying in . Two weeks of pain with SNMP because I put the wrong port in...

Finally got around to setting up my old drawing table, so I decided to fill in The Snekish Inquisitors.

@kev It's a misunderstanding based on the definition of the word "passionate". You don't have to be passionate to do a job well. Passionate about working at a cash register? Give me a break.

Passionate about art, waxing lyricals after hours? Okay.

But you can be "dedicated" - to good service. A woodworker can be dedicated to quality, without being passionate. So can a programmer.

The problem with the quote is "programming is not for you". No, good work doesn't require passion, just dedication
