You prefer to get in early so you can get to the gym in the afternoon before the mad rush. That leaves 9–3 as the only possible pairing hours, but, then there's lunch and a meeting or two. So, that leaves only 9–11 and 1–3. That leaves only four hours, and you need to have the socket code done by the end of the day. During these precious four hours, you're motivated to work intensively to get to the goal line by the end of the day. You know that Alex needs to pair with Chelsea tomorrow, and you won't have his expertise anymore.

The questions and answer can lead to great revelations. Don Wells shares an experience. She was working on code I had never seen before on a system I had never seen before. She told me she had a dilemma and wanted to pair program to debug it. She had been working on it for a long time, and it had spoiled her demonstration that morning. She needed to fix the obvious flaw and release the code. I was a bit concerned that I didn't know anything but proceeded, assuming I would be her teddy bear. She explained the problem completely to me; no solution presented itself.

This will be discussed further in Chapter 10. I l@ve RuBoard I l@ve RuBoard Myth 6: The navigator finds only syntax mistakes. How boring is that! Compilers can do that better than humans can anyway. True, a major benefit of pair programming is the continual code review; the navigator can find syntax mistakes as they are created (although we strongly encourage you to give drivers more than a handful of nanoseconds to fix their own syntax mistakes). However, the job of the navigator is much more important and exciting than this.
