Smoke

I SIT in a chair and wait for my IDE to respond.

Millions of lines of code are run unnecessarily, indices are created and forgotten, gigabytes of ram are expended, the developers of RubyMine, Netbeans, Aptana chase the windmills of autocompletion, smoke pours across the fields of circuits and the spectre of kill -9 looms.

I sit in a chair and wait for my IDE to respond.




(with infinite apologies to Carl Sandburg who wrote the thundering poem mimicked here)
