Differences and Similarities?


#21

Yeah, I limited miself to sci-fi. My audiobooks library is, out of 86 books:
46 Pratchett
16 Robin Hobb
12 Neil Gaiman
5 A song of ice and fire

Douglas Adams I have on CD, old-school :sunglasses:

And I agree, guards guards! is a good starting point.
Do you know of any other good similar fantasy writers (knowing that I only listened once to Hobb and Martin and like 10 times to each one by Pratchett, Adams and Gaiman :grin:)

There are so many people who seem to like coding apparently o.o.


#23

I guess it’s the frustrations/problems and relief/joy of finally get your program to do what you want it to do.
(Problem solving.)


#24

That’s exactly why I like programming. I find it’s like a video-game in itself :D.


#25

If I were to guess, I’d say programmers are just more comfortable with using online forums than average.


#26

Oh oops, lol. Unfortunately I don’t know any others quite in the same writing style, although you’ve inspired me to go find some more Neil Gaiman books, since I’ve only read a couple, so thanks!

#35

I love terry pratchets word, psychatrickarist. I don’t want to say that word to my therapist or psychiatrist now that I know I’m a brain


#37

I have never been a gamer.


#38

I was wondering if I could turn Amazon into a verb, as in “Amazon’ing is my hobby”. I’m very impulsive when it comes to spending too. It wouldn’t be so bad if remembered to pay my bills first…


#39

I hear that. On my steam account I have 1,398 games. I’m good friends with impulsivity


#40

Me. Did try it years ago & got hooked for a month or so on one game, but not done it in many years.
