Writing Destructive Code Is Fun

I don’t know why, but writing code that is somewhat destructive is really fun. I was thinking earlier that there is no way in ExIf35 itself to fully remove the configuration file and remove personally-identifying information from the application. This seemed like it could be a bad things, so I set out to make a simple feature addition to ExIf35, a kill switch. It’s probably a little childish to make it this dramatic or to enjoy writing the code this much, but how often do you get to tell an application to go through and individually remove every file in a (system) folder? I didn’t do the really annoying application kill thing where there are 5 nested boxes asking variations of “Are you sure?”.
