I have a tendency to visualize coders as kittens, this seems to reduce the amount of murderous thoughts which pop to my mind when I read these creatures's code, at least at work.

For what it's worth, when I write code in ASM now the first thing I do is write pseudo-notes before I start coding the main loop, or even some of the subroutines. For example:
The /'s were originally -'s, but as each part is completed I change them to /'s. It makes it easy to see at a glance what still needs to be done
I like it. I tend to do something similar whenever I'm writing a large system but the more I code the more I want that general skeleton to be the actual program. Which is why I like Haskell because it's very close to allowing writing a pure declaration of intent and having it compile.

And apologies to the original poster. It looks like every thread I participate in ends up being wildly off-topic-ed.
