Wicked Pleasures while coding

fingers getting weary, I'll stop there :)

Who's as old as me to remember this in "first syndication" (ie, I'm old, but not that old!)

Sometimes audio noise is better for coding than syndicated tv ala Perry Mason, 77 Sunset Strip, Peter Gunn, Checkmate, etc.

Or do you prefer perfect silence while coding?

Or music?

Or this is a foobar deserving of "duh"?

Coding to OTR Jeff Regan now... Jack Webb's trial (where he figured it out in 1948) which led to radio's Dragnet in 1950ish. Did a pretty good job.

And one can find all these on the web. Just have to look for them. Most are in PD (ie. copyrights expired or never renewed). Fun thing with "audio" shows is you don't have to take your eyes off the screen.

Code happy! Code with fun, too!

And I'm betting there were 48 stars on the US flag when you were born.*

*that would be me too.

Hey, isn't this year the 100th anniversary of stars 47 and 48?

:: detour to look up ::


I record courtroom TV and let it play unwatched (TV and computer against opposite walls) unless they're showing pictures of something that deviates from "ordinary wear and tear" like a car wrapped around a telephone pole. But only while doing something totally mechanical like log-wrangling.

Back when I was in the Army I was stationed on an Air Force base in Turkey. We had a radio station, but no television. During the evenings the station would play many of the old time radio shows, about a two-hour block if I correctly remember. Didn't really miss television, had the theater of the imagination for almost five years.

Don't think I could work to it, though; much too distracting for me. I prefer quiet or sometimes music at low volume.

Being totally honest, this is my 4th decade on this earth and i havent heard of any of them, but i suspect I was born on the wrong continent to appreciate them more.

My relationship with music is too close, I cannot play it without it demanding my full attention. So silence it is.
