Maybe it’s been the heat, but I’ve been a little run down lately, so I’ve been doing some serious … resting … on the weekends lately, as well as finding some simple, short-term problems to engage my programming faculties on.
I think too much multi-tasking, or multi-tasking during the wrong phase of programming, can train your brain into becoming a “make a start”er, and I like not to slip into that, so I like to find a problem or two that I figure I can tackle fairly quickly, and that I can only tackle if I can get my brains attention on it.
My only issue is that I won’t solve abstract problems. They have to be practical to me in some sense, so it can take a little effort finding a problem on which I will engage in all aspects.
This weeks problem, I will present for your entertainment, but in an abstract form ;)
