Good comment. I've been writing code since 1966 - I was actually the first person at The University of Kansas to major in Computer Science, though it had to be called B.A. in Math with Emphasis in Computer Science because it had not been officially recognized until the year after I graduated. However, in this long life of writing programs, I've hit this wall several times. I learned that it is temporary and whenever I was left feeling frustrated and empty, I just went for a walk, played my guitar for awhile, took a nap -- whatever it took to get past the roadblock. The reward for cracking a tough nut was making the computer perform some cool backflip, clever dance, or magic trick. Part of what I enjoyed being part of the first wave of independent developers was being ultimately responsible for a large, multi-function, monolithic, high-reliability application for a small target user-base. I'm "retired", but in this business, there's really no such thing. Enjoy life.
