exactly, its like the MS Access issue. everyone can make a database then it become's IT's problem to make it work when it reaches the size limit or user limit. if you are making a spreadsheet so complicated that it takes forever to load you are using the wrong tool for the job. for so many years we had documents on a typewriter, now everyone wants to waste time picking fonts, color schemes, tables .. its SO lame.

Submission + - How to get out of developer's block? 1 1

Midnight Thunder writes: I have spent the past six months working on a software project, and while I can come up with ideas, I just can't seem to sit down in front of the computer to code. I sit there and I just can't concentrate. I don't know whether this is akin to writer's block, but it feels like it. Have any other slashdotters run into this and if so how did you get out of it? It is bothering me since the project has ground to a halt and I really want to get started again. I am the sole developer on the project, if that makes a difference.
