If you read the recent blog entry about my frustrations with the mass transit system in Maryland and D.C., you will know that I haven't had much in the way of free time lately. To squeeze a little extra time out of each day, I decided to make use of all the time I was spending on the train. So, I purchased a new, extended-life battery and began taking my laptop with me to work so that I could program during my commute, which typically lasts about 1 1/2 hours. So if you see some crazy hacker sitting across from you on Metro/MARC hacking away at a black terminal, that would be me!
I am sure that many other open source projects can claim roots in similar environments and I would love to hear about them! So, I am going to pose the following question as the topic for comments. What crazy places have you programmed and on what projects? It is always neat to know I little bit more about the background of various projects. For me, it has been the Studs MVC Framework+ project that has been victim of my commute hacking.
