prologicpodcasts in my subscription stack?16:03
prologiclong travel times16:03
prologicnah I usually just read tech news, etc16:03
pvrdwbthat many hours travel time, you should find some really specific stuff to read/listen to.. rather than generic radio-type chatter.  You could be a better man and the end of every commute :)16:22
pvrdwb(perhaps that's a bit heavy, it's just that I made that change myself when i was commuting 1hr a day, and it made a big difference to me)16:22
pvrdwbanyway i'm working on the other project for now, but i'd like to get back to our project later today if that's alrigbht16:23
prologicwhat kind of things did you do16:37
prologicto "be a better man" after every commute? :)16:37
prologicI used to play chess every morning and afternoon16:38
pvrdwbeducation mainly, i listened to heaps of dev podcasts.  at the time i was writing heaps of java, so about half of my time i spent listening to the Java Posse podcast that included a couple of guys working at Sun and Google.  there's value in getting insight into a language's idiomatic usage patterns and popular tools and techniques, i reckon16:41
pvrdwbe.g. a guy who was working on NetBeans talked about dealing with feature freeze if you haven't started on a big feature, but still want it in the next release.  add button for activating unimplemented feature; log bug against button "doesn't correctly activate feature X". :D16:43
prologicI do this - still do :)16:58
