I May Be A Nerd, But At Least I'm Lazy

I just got excited that I (finally!) created a successful formula on Excel after spending about 15 hours on it... which will help me cut out many, many more hours of work in the long run. Ahhh...

  2. Nobody does more work in the pursuit of making their job easier than lazy people.

    Good Work, Ezzie! Sounds very much like something I would do.

  5. Kudos! I assume you're familiar with The Virtues of a Programmer? The short version is: laziness, impatience, and hubris.

  9. LISP - programming language used alot in AI. (Interestly, I went to chasuna last week and sat next to a LISP programmer.)
    My friend likes to joke that any software system, when it gets sufficently large enough, will always end up with two things: 1) An email client and 2) a LISP interpreter.

  12. Shabbat Shalom. This week I'm adding another Excel file to my already massive set of files because of a clerical error that sent me on an hour and a half (frustrating) banking reconciliation to find the $2000 (round) error. Next time I will not need to waste my own time. (Never happens to clients!)./
