So said Dr. Niles Crane, quoting an unspecified "great man".
I've sunk a lot of hours into building various different programs. Partly because I enjoy it, partly due to necessity and partly because sometimes I genuinely believe I'm creating something useful. The latter encompasses a bunch of my projects and with these I aim for painstakingly high quality because I want people to use them. I spend hours making sure code is written and formatted well, making sure unit test coverage is good, and ensuring that APIs are well documented, etc.
And yet it's had literally thousands and thousands of visits. It's far and away the most successful project I've done. Even taking into account professional projects, and I've worked on some for a few big names, I think loljs is a pretty strong contendor in the popularity stakes.
It's recently been the subject of a "learn to program" video on a popular channel on YouTube and according to my primitive stats, it's had six thousand views in the last 36 hours (not *all* from YouTube). Which is great. My web host is earning their monthly fee. I'm very happy. I just wish you'd all be so interested in the stuff I spent more time doing.
