Scene change

When I first started coding *anything*, it was generally a team event with a lot of giggling and pimply-faced nerd humour, and the noise of the teletype hammering away. Later it was a solo affair with milk-crates loaded with cassettes providing a progressively stranger and louder mix of music, emphasis on strange. Slowly the lights and people and noise and stuph have been paring away – now even the quiet jazz is too distracting, and I miss my pre-dawn sessions before crawling into bed to ignore the normal humans.
