Well, I can't argue with your opinion of what makes you happy.
To me, it's like creating a painting that no one will ever see.
Even if you have a unique problem to solve, some one MIGHT have the same problem and want to solve it.
I just hope most of the community doesn't agree with you, because unlike a painting, code that is never shared is unlikely to be seen even after you're dead and your SuperCPU has been sold on Ebay.
