Great episode, sigflup! I know exactly what you mean when you talk about keeping a balance with programming and personal life, especially when you have a partner in your life. While mine wasn't due to programming, I did focus a lot on computers and music, mainly with composing music on my computers and just my fascination with computers and FOSS operating systems in general. I was also fascinated with retrocomputing and making lots of that FOSS work on them. This did take a lot of time away from my wife at the time. Well, that part of my life is in the past and I'm with my current wife, but I have learned from my mistakes in the past. There needs to be a balance between our passions of interest and our passion for the ones we love. As much as I love that kind of stuff, my wife is much more important to me. She may not have any interest in this part of my life that I do enjoy, but I'm fine with that. I love her and dedicate my time to her primarily. None of these things should ever become more important than our loved ones in our lives.

Right there with you
I loved your stories. My "I have a problem." moment was at 4AM, shivering in the garage, thinking, "I really should get to bed soon. I have work in a few hours." :-)
