How I know I’m a geek

Whenever people ask me if I do lots of little one-off hacks, I tell them no, I don’t. Because I don’t. (No time!)

But a few months ago I did write, for my own personal use, a little hotkey app switcher. All the apps I use regularly can be switched to (launched if necessary) just by typing some keyboard shortcuts.

Purely personal software. Works for me only. Configured by editing the source code and rebuilding it.

And that’s how I know I’m a geek and not just a developer. (Bonus points that it’s a universal binary and runs on my DTK machine.)
