So you want to be a programmer?

You will find yourself trying to automate everything in your life. And this is good.

I use a Google spreadsheet to track all my professional time and projects. That sheet keeps evolving so that I can type less and get more information from it. Every enhancement makes me smile. Today’s was as simple as automatically showing the day of the week based on the UTC day and time entered. The next step will be to automatically calculate a subtotal of hours worked on that day (remembering that I could be working at 11pm at night which in UTC time would put that at 4am the next day…can’t show that as the next day) and break it out by different clients. That’s a non-trival task.
