Nope. I started the video version, and it's super cool ... just haven't been able to get as far into as I'd like, though.

Still plodding along, nothing too interesting to report. Gaming and kung fu, plus occasionally doing some work at my day job. Prioritizing is hard for me, as I find it hard to make value judgments in terms of how I spend my time.

I am excited because the horrorsynth band I've linked here, Dance With the Dead has just released a new album and is playing a show in Richmond in mid-October. Should be fun!

    Did we reach a point where we need to be performance machines all the time?

Basically, yes. We really only judge worth by grades and then by job.

As someone who takes this stuff due to legit ADHD it kind of bothers me.

I like Elite's better, what with having every star in the galaxy and actually being playable :)

(I kid, mostly.)

I also heard on the radio that some investors were suing him, arguing that his tweet was a ruse to jack up the stock price.

Oh cool, I'll definitely give this a watch.

Perhaps, but that definition of "complexity" is not how that term is usually used. In terms of usability, C# is far less complex.

Two things. One, C != C++. Also, what do you mean by a programming language being x number of pages long?

No way, or at least I've found C# to be much more intuitive. The standard library is a lot more straightforward, and you don't have to do memory management at all if you don't want to. By the same token, you never really have to worry about whether you should pass a variable by reference or by value. Pretty much the only question is whether to make a class static or not.

Nothing super exciting to report.

1. I've fallen into the rabbit hole that is Elite: Dangerous, and I'm super, super hooked.

2. Trying to find a balance with the stimulants I'm taking, and not burning the candle at both ends. It's fun but exhausting, so I need to figure out how not to push myself quite as hard.

3. Coding is pretty fun. I'm teaching myself C# as a gateway into full-fledged C.

4. Related to 2 and 3, I've been contemplating frustration tolerance and my emotional responses to learning, how to set goals, that kind of thing. I think I'm on to something.

Not quite that long, but my first relationship was on ICQ ca. 1998.
