Anonymous Confessions from Programmers.Confess
I have a presentation this week that my boss's boss wants me to do and so I delayed an issue I was working on to prepare it. Then yesterday my manager asks me about the work on the issue and I just want to tell her to leave me alone for the rest of the week because I'm busy with the presentation. Or maybe I should ask her if I should delay the presentation to work on the issue now. I only have time and desire to focus on one at a time! Maybe I will be fired.

I saw a billboard yesterday that said "Hello World" -- automatically caught my attention, and for good reason too! It was an ad for a computer science event (for kids) at a local science center. Sadly non-coding parents of nerdy kids won't get it and won't take the time to read the small print. :(
