Programming in the Sun

Programming in the Sun
Since specialagentm requested a photographic demonstration of my stupid-looking-but-effective sun visor, here it is.

Note: The light/contrast isn't the greatest, because the whole point is that the bright sun is beating down on me! But see how nicely my eyes are shaded? I can still see my screen, plus look out of the window, even with the sun.

Also note my cool paisley shirt. No, I've never worn it with the paisley pants. Even my fashion sense isn't that stunted.

Finally, you'll see I'm wearing my headphones also. The visor and headphone music do nicely to focus me into my own little world. This is my "don't mess with me, I'm trying to concentrate" look. (It's surprising how many people will bug me anyway.)

Nice set of cans too!


The headphones, I'm talkin' about the headphones. Are those sony studio headphones?

I don't know, I'd have to check (I'm not at work today). Are they really fancy ones? If so, then no. Mine are large-sized, but they were only $15 or so.

No worries. I wish I could make better use of headphones like these but folks just come up to my desk too much.

Its not fair.

Hmm... I wonder if I put on a hat if that would make people think I'm too busy to talk to them. They are not dissuaded when they see me with the headphones on.

Probably not; it doesn't work for me. *sigh*

Glad to see you follow the solid "sensory deprivation" techniques. Very good programmer form :-).

Are we seeing this visor in more or less real time ? That is, did you take this picture today ?

If you did...why are you working today ???

:((

No, not real-time, thank goodness! Just catching up -- I took some pics friday but didn't have time to pick a good one and actually post it 'til today.

Comfort over fashion, I say. Regarding the visor, that is. I love the shirt. :D

I'm thinking if you painted, "Disturb Me At Your Peril" on the back of your chair it might get rid of a few folks who really didn't need to bug you ;-)

It's all about the combo effect!

ah-ha, maybe that would do it!

Don't worry. Jim Murray from Kansas City has that covered. He's the only man I know who owns wedding and funeral paisleys.

He might be at Confusion. I'd point him out, but if he's there, it'll be obvious.

Oh wow. I will definitely keep my eyes open for a paisley-clad man!
