All the time man. I keep a yellowpad by the bed just in case I wakeup to something brilliant.

Happens to me almost every night (rather, early morning) when I finally get to bed.

All of those curly braces and shiite rolling around in that empty wasteland.  Then just when I'm about to drop off, it comes to me....wonder what the hell memcache really is.

No.  I suspect that after a while some real answers might come of the loose code rattling around in there.

In scheme the basic structure is a linked list.
But you only deal with 2 parts of it.
The head (first element) and the tail (rest of the elements).
so if u had a list (array) and you wanted to sum it you would do somethink like this

(define (sum lst)
      (if (null? lst) 0 ;if the list is empty return 0
      (+ (car lst) (sum (cdr lst))) ;else take off the first element of list and add it function (sum called with the rest of the list))
that is how u add lists, (you do lost of more cool stuff).
when you want to make a list you do the reverse.

anyway i had this wicked dream.
But in the dream i was like a worm.
I was a list. but i could add and remove elements to my self.
Also i could process the elements.
Pretty wicked.

on a similar note.

have you ever done these? because i and my wife both have.

said LOL out loud to someone, in public. (as a word, not letters)
said ctrl-z when you did something wrong.
said undo when you did something wrong.
said delete when you dont want something or you said something wrong.

and the one i keep thinking in my head, whenever i need to switch topics in a conversation is... Alt-Tab.

Both Mary and I often talk about not having enough bandwidth for <the current task> and slicing processor time.
It's funny to us how our interrupts are revectored because of the kids.
Often she needs me to reboot or CTRL-ALT-DEL when I am stuck on <anything>.
Our RAM is most often full and we need our brains defragmented because we can't seem to store any more.
She once told me that as a programmer and partner I was overclocked, which I took as a great compliment.

But the best part is when she asks if I'd like her to extend the capacity of my floppy...

The Kaptain often uses the phrase "Control A Delete" when describing how to fix things.  The only people that get it are other coders so the confusing looks the Katpain gets are great.  Another one The Kaptain likes is when pretty much anything is being difficult or not working for someone The Kaptain tells them

"Thats because the Kaptain has programmed it to hate you"

been using that one for years.

I love it when someone asks "How long is it going to take to fix it?" or "How long will it take to write it?" I usually answer "That depends on how long I stand here talking to you about it" or "The time will be directly proportional to the amount of time I spend explaining the solution to you".

Also, I have random passwords that I type just about every day, some dozens of times a day, yet when someone asks me for the password I can't "remember" it and sometimes have to go and sit at a keyboard and "watch" my fingers while they type the password  D'oh!  Nerd
