"What do you do if your productivity drops to two lines of code
a day, and you just sit and stare at the code and feel like you
don't know how to do it anymore?"
"Some coders said programmer's block is nothing more than a blip
on the cathode-ray tube."
"I've never thought about it," Linus Torvalds, who is credited
with authoring Linux, told ZDNet News."
"When asked how he copes when the urge to code disappears,
Torvalds said via e-mail: "Whenever I don't feel like programming
on something, I've had other projects. Or I've just done something
else altogether, like reading. I think it turns into
'programmer's block' only when you feel you have to do something
specific, and I've been able to avoid that."
