My cow-orkers are psychos. At least one or two show symptoms of borderline psychosis. Developers, the lot of them. Depression seems to feature a lot among them, too. Is this normal? I know a lot of programmer types, many of them doing it for a living (of sorts) and they're either mad in some way (mostly non-destructive), or they're quite depressed (which isn't madness anymore, not with inflation and diseases and banks messing with your account and teeth hurting and women rejecting you and salaries that never last long enough and buses on strike and CDs misburning and people complaining loudly in their online diaries and bosses yelling at everybody when one person screws up and overtime payment being cancelled and fave websites being DOS'd out of existence and stupid locals who smell). Anyway, I don't think I know any normal people at all.

Development is at a standstill. This time it's the fault of apathy and Diablo II. And I'm tired all the time. Maybe staying up the night before going to work, just to play Diablo II isn't always a smart thing?

I've never been known to be smart, just clever ;)
