Have you ever...

    wasted a lot of time coding the wrong algorithm?
    used a data structure that was much too complicated?
    tested a program but missed an obvious problem?
    spent a day looking for a bug you should have found in five minutes?
    needed to make a program run three times faster and use less memory?
    struggled to move a program from a workstation to a PC or vice versa?
    tried to make a modest change in someone else's program?
    rewritten a program because you couldn't understand it?

Was it fun?
