actual programmer time

…Most time isn’t spent programming anyway – programmer time is spent:

a) fixing broken stuff that should not be broken

b) trying to figure out what problem the customer actually wants solving

c) writing experimental code to test some idea

d) googling for some obscure fact that is needed to solve a) or b)

e) writing and testing production code

(No, that isn’t research-based or anything).
