When I look back to the xpaint-art I've managed to create for my previous
attempts to games I can't say more than that I'm grateful that I don't
have to do gfx for this project. The stuff looks horrible, and even *I*
have a hard time recognizing what the gfx should be, and I *did* the gfx.

I think many programmers are ego-tripped bastards, at least many of the
ones I see here at my university. A lot of people really do think they do
everything best. I've learnt the hard way that my field is code, I can't
do the other parts of a game (gfx, sound, website, etc).
