You guys are dead on about why so many people in our line of work don't have side projects - I know frequently the last thing I want to do after a day at work is deal with more code. That's not to say it never happens, but it's not a priority for many.
Yeah, I've seen a few in the sys admin/net admin field go home and totally unplug. I just cant see doing that.. Technology moves way too fast and I always fear getting behind if I dont hone my skills outside the normal work day. Purely OCD, I know.
Sides my job is my hobby. I have had times where I dont have time to touch things, but I cant see not playing in my server room at home at all. As wife always said, "I could be out doing worse things... Least she she always knew where to find me"
I'm glad to hear that my co-workers and I are not the only ones who are RITA haters. I'm especially happy to hear it come from someone outside of the accounting world. Thank you Jeff.
Stalkers.... I deal with those every day... Although sometimes it feels good to be stalked, if it's quaint... :-)
This phrase clearly alludes to the facial expression created by putting one's tongue in one's cheek. This induces a wink (go on - try it), which has long been an indication that what is being said is to be taken with a pinch of salt. It may have been used to suppress laughter. 'Tongue in cheek' is the antithesis of the later phrase - 'with a straight face'.
