    “Ah yes this is a small code change, should just be 5 minutes”

    **7 hours later**

    “Why the fuck is nothing happening now”

  2. ESTMCMXIV says

    Nothing’s easy, nothing’s free.

  3. STEMpsych says

    For the record, the guy behind @Pinboard, Maciej Cegłowski, gave his software company what is, IMHO, the finest software company name ever: “Nine Fives Software”.

    P.S. his talks are brilliant and entertaining and just about never about software. Highly recommended.

    Or atleast that’s what I thought when I read it on stack overflow

  5. LunarGibbons says

    And if they for once is easy we will make it in the most complicated way possible.

    “Let’s send some guys to the moon, how hard can it be?”

    -NASA, probably

    Past me: “Oh yeah, weekend project, couple hundred lines of code max”
    Spongebob french guy: “6 months later…”

    Where can I buy this? I need it in my office.

    i have never been so offended by something i 100% agree with

  10. __algernon says

    I think maintaining the false belief that a project is easy is a great way to persevere for a really long time. I deliberately cultivate this.

  11. Sceptz says

    We have a saying at work.

    If you’re looking for a challenge, say the magic words: *”that’s going to be a quick fix.”*

  12. KochSD84 says

    I think that’s Life’s credo as well…. Programmer insanity just adds much optimism and renews the “This will be easy now” part after every obstacle..

  13. RadioMelon says

    Honestly, yeah.

    I feel like a completely different programmer than where I started off.

  14. Whitethumbs says

    We do these things not because they are easy, but because it’s a repetitive task that will need to completed many times.

  15. TeraFlint says

    I’m not doing this stuff because I think it’s easy. I do it because of a really strong intrinsic motivation to achieve the end result. The satisfaction of creating functioning software is just off the charts.

    If this goal turns out to be reachable *somehow*, I keep pursuing the goal… and hope my motivation lasts longer than the development time… there’s this whole folder with ~95% unfinished projects just glaring at me.

  16. orangepunc says

    We do these things not because they are easy, but because ~~we~~ our managers thought they would be easy.

  17. WWhataboutismss says

    Me in my head about anything: this will only take 5 minutes.

    3 hours later… FUCK!

  18. master117jogi says

    There really should have been a line break before the they. Would have looked way nicer.

  19. BarbaraPate93 says

    You didn’t have the same effect

  20. Pradfanne says

    Why did I think it would say “We do what we must, because we can”?

  21. AtTheCorner661 says

    Sometimes it’s like making a lazyness investment.

    I’ll put effort and work into this program now, because it’ll make a task that I have to do often easier.

    And then there’s the projects that i take on not because i think they’ll be easy, but because i think they’ll be fun

  32. deanrihpee says

    It was easy until some wild changes in mid-development appear.
