Too hard, or a challenge ?


'it's a fun programming exercise that you're doing because it's just hard enough to be interesting but not so hard that you can't figure it out.'

Never thought of it that way, but this is indeed the kind of project I like to do most. And if most programmers are like me they will always tend to bend a projects towards this edge. If it's too simple we'll add functionality that creates new challenges. And if it seems just to hard we try to figure a way around it (buying a third party library or let someone else do it..) so we can spend more time at the things we like, like the slow fading in and out of our super-fancy splash-screen...
