Yesterday my finacee and I learned how to make homemade pasta sauce. Aside from being a bit watery, the result was very promising. However, now my wrist is killing me and I suspect it's a result of stirring the sauce for an hour or so... As a programmer, obviously any wrist pain worries me considerably...

Oh noes! Bam's got limp wrist syndrome! Whatever shall we do without our fearless BamBam??? You've got to give up pasta sauce, and food, and your girlfriend immediately, and come back to your senses. You belong with us bambams!

I've just removed about 7000 lines of the most horrible, very old code from my project. Deleting something can feel so rewarding. 8-)

:o What kind of pasta sauce was that?

It's supposed to cook all night ideally (the longer the better), but we only cooked it for 6 or 7 hours give or take... We were visiting her aunt and uncle who taught us the process. So naturally we didn't want to leave our pot of sauce as a burden to their kitchen... I stirred for an hour as we prepared it in parts and tried to get it boiling... It took about that long to prepare all the batches (remember, we made about 14 litres and the tools were not as large as the pot). I stirred it primarily to avoid burning it to the bottom of the pot... Lucky I did because even stirring the entire time the heat was above minimum we still ended up with a somewhat charred bottom to the pot.. Fortunately, it was a thin layer and it came off pretty easily... Otherwise, you might as well throw the pot away. Alas, it appears to be an aluminum pot so it isn't quite as strong or heat tolerant as we might prefer. Her aunt has a heavy "steel" pot that is probably better suited to the job. In any case, it should be pretty similar to an Italian sauce, but if there are any residents from the "homeland" (i.e., Italy) present (I seem to recall a few) your own perspective is welcome...

I started taking Taekwondo recently and they're having a speghetti sauce competition. I registered to enter a sauce, as I've made a number of great sauces in the past and figured I'd have a shot. Apparently there's a trophy :o

One of my most productive days was throwing away 1,000 lines of code.

By my math, Polybios is seven times more productive than Ken Thompson.

Also, there are certain exercises to build up wrist strength at the computer. Everyone here should look into them.

I vote we drop this thread! ;D

Possible flame war, but don't pluralize math!

'math' is short for mathematics not mathematic.

Saying maths is like saying mathematicses

Well, I prefer sulphur, and the same people who standardised the scientific community on 'aluminium' also apparently standardised on 'sulfur' at the same time. Can't win 'em all. :-/

I never thought of it that way.

... and with that, this thread has imparted upon me its first nugget of information.

Stirring 14 liters for several hours :o ... There has to be a better way.
