10kSLOC over 12 hours is:

833.33r lines per hour
13.8r lines per minute

If we take for example an average equivalent of say 5 words per line, that
equates to 69 words per minute. Not a particularly brilliant rate for a full
time typist, but maintainng that rate over 12 hours would be quite a feat.

Unless of course you are including all the lines of code that JBuilder
automatically generates - but that's cheating :-)

Exactly!
