1. Difficult to say, but I think getting married wins

The 4am thing is catching up with me, I need to go to sleep now, but I risk waking very early. At the moment I would be disinclined to recommend a career as a software architect to anyone, but it does have some good moments, I guess. The session was interesting, but I am not doing another 4am in a hurry - especially not in Spring, when I have a runny nose and slitty eyes anyway!
