Most of the time it's not tedious at all. In fact, I'd say that the emotional rollercoaster that coding can put you through is probably a big factor in why a lot of people enjoy programming: It might be frustrating as all hell trying to find what's causing a particular bug, but you're certainly not bored while it's happening. This sort of try-test-fail loop can eat at you, but it rocks when you finally solve it.
Kinda like DD itself, actually
