There's a very famous quotation that's been running through my head for the past couple of days: "Music soothes the savage breast". In fact, it got to the point where I had to sit down and run it through Google, just to see where it originated. According to what I found, the quote is from a play called "The Mourning Bride", by William Congreve, and it's actually "Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast".
What does this have to do with anything? Well, over the last couple of weeks, I've been indulging myself, listening to some of my favourite tunes while I work. And it seems to be having an effect - like plants who respond to their owners talking to them, my code seems to be flowing better, and I leave the office at the end of the day happier and less resentful about my job.
Even my colleagues have noticed - just last week, after speaking to a particularly persistent engineer from QA, I didn't stomp around the office and hurl things out of the window as I usually do. Instead, I just murmured a quiet "Cretin!", and went back to work.
My co-workers think I'm in love. But I know it's all thanks to Icecast.
