    But then he fucks you up when your code is over xx lines and you try to merge it with Linux.

    I think Torvalds said that while he was writing the Graphic driver for Linux. he didn't care about code quality, things went messy, now you see..

    Not all (good or bad) programmers are the same, simple as that if you ask me.

    I worry about my relationships, does this make me a good programmer? :D

    @Tored no a lonely programmer

    As long nobody else has to maintain your code...

    Good programmers make bad quotes.

    It's not either/or, they're linked. Bad data structures will require workarounds in ugly code, and vice versa.

    True . without a good data structure even if you write good code it'll be always bad and messy . Good data structure save time and lines.

    Don't good programmers automatically write good and structured code? I've experienced so many bad programmers forcing structures and patterns on code, just because that's what they learned in school. But the result being UML hell.
    I believe the best approach is always to keep things simple. If a pattern is really needed, then fine, but don't force it.

    @JsonC11 anyway we have our SO (stackOverflow) to keep us company :P

    @JsonC11 yes I think so too. people here are generally kind :)

    Ha! Good programmers don't have any relationships in the first place!

    @lazyDev have you even read Linus's code quality standards document?
