I’d say less than a single hour goes to writing new code now. I get up, in a haze I remember the list of bugs from the day before, I fix one and trigger three others, then I go on google and research a problem with our SVN server for four hours because it doesn’t want to check in the library file I just compiled. Rinse, repeat. Every day is some new horror, some deeper dimension of absurdity that slowly drives me into madness.

All too true... who among us doesn't spend a day doing software development and wonder where the time actually developing software went to?
