"[Government work is] steady work, but boring at times. (I don't think they'd approve of the Nerf guns). Without the pressure of staying in business, projects sometimes stagnate, leaving us with little to do. During these slow times, I help behind the scenes at NerfCenter.com; It's a fun site, and they are switching to Perl for their admin backend. It keeps my skills sharp, and wards off the boredom.
My questions to the Slashdot community are:
- Can you have a fun tech job, without the worry of being suddenly unemployed?
- If you are you forced (as I am) to get your fun on the side what are some good projects to get involved in?
- What do you to unwind and have a bit of 'fun' in the workplace?"
