Just did some fun, simple programming with ruby/spec for Natalie tonight. Nothing fancy, but I got to write actual Ruby, so that's cool! youtu.be/nn1ZlWULVhU

The first 1000 commits of a project are magical time where anything is possible and all features are green field. 🍀

‪I watched a John Wayne movie with my Mom tonight using CyTube, and it was pretty cool. We were able to chat about the cast and story and acting, all without leaving our homes. 😁‬

@seven1m Yeah I worked with a guy for a few years and one of us would go hang out with him Saturday nights and make sure he was home without getting back into old habits.

I don't have a substance abuse problem myself, but I know people who do. And I have my own vices/obsessions. Being cut off from seeing coworkers and friends is going to put those people at risk of falling back into old habits. Call a friend, ask them how they're doing.

Someone ate an entire package of graham crackers and left the wrapper on my desk.

Also, my stomach hurts.

Somehow I have managed to trick over 100 people into subscribing to my YouTube channel. I never imagined there would be that many people interested in watching me struggle to write a programming language. 😆 Montage time! 🎉 youtube.com/watch?v=tUzsBtWiab

The video where I confess that I often wonder if I should give up and leave this hard stuff to the "professionals." Nooo!! Let's finish our garbage collector, okay!??

I suppose it says something about the community of developers seeking out and watching live coding videos -- they are way more positive and encouraging than the general public! 🤗

My experience posting videos on YouTube has been way more positive than I thought it would be. I had seen so many nasty comments on YouTube videos, it held me back from uploading my own videos for a long time.

Ever notice how in software development some of the hardest won victories would make NO SENSE to anyone else who doesn't understand the problem domain?

"YAY I properly parsed the hideous data structure and return an appropriate string array of targets!"

That was like, a week, off and on :) Whew!
