@Andrew Hammer: "If you are a developer and you don't think it's the most awesome job in the world, please leave our field because you're doing it wrong." This is actually very sound advice. It sounds dismissive and maybe that was the emotion that drove this choice of words, but it is very good advice. Software development is simply too hard to do as a "meal ticket" or as a placeholder occupation. Competitive issues and the workplace culture of programming are VERY hard on anyone who isn't absolutely delighted to be solving little puzzles and building stuff all day long, learning the next product or tool, etc. You can't fake enthusiasm and the work and the culture of SW development will drive you absolutely nuts when you don't enjoy the activity, the learning, or the people any more. I got out of SW development a few years ago for just these reasons.
