Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

I’ll use dirty tricks [in coding] for two reasons. One is if it’s really going to give me a performance improvement and my application is one that the performance improvement is going to be appreciated. Or sometimes I’ll say, “This is tricky; I couldn’t resist being tricky today because it’s so cute.” So just for pure pleasure. In any case, I document it; I don’t just put it in there.
