I think one of my most recent revelations was when I realized I made a program with Java to "draw names out of the hat" for the karma rather than an actual hat and names.
That or when I showed (both visually and acoustically) my girlfriend today the new subwoofer parts I got from Parts Express.
Or perhaps when I decided to go back to my Go Fish card game I programmed, even though I don't have to.
Or when I decided last week to program DDR to make up for sucking at the game.
Or maybe the time when...
So, when did you get hit by the hard brick of reality and when?
