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.
Just because you write if for yourself doesn't mean you can't release it.
If you take $$$$ out of the equation, I would get more satisfaction writing something I need and enjoy using than I would writing something that I didn't particular care about just because I thought more people wanted to use it.
