I'm 30 now.
Also, I'm moving to Firefox from Chrome. Wish me luck.
For those who aren't aware, I'm not really on social media anymore.
I've been pretty much doing the Hermit thing and making stuff in
my spare time and just not showing my face in the usual places anymore.
I feel like turning 30 is a pivotal moment in anyone's life and it makes
me personally think about where I'm going in life. I'm not seeing things
pacing up the way I like, so I want to buckle down this year and really
start to work on stuff on my own without outside influence.
So far it's been pretty much the same thing as usual - difficulties
with finishing projects. But, I think one thing I need to learn is to work
with the tools I have and their flaws. There's never going to be a
language which will work in every way that pleases me, so I just have to
bite the bullet and find ways around those flaws.
For instance, in AGK2, arrays work a little like objects, but instead of
thearray.length returning the unary value (e.g. 10 indices SHOULD
return 10) it instead returns the maximum index that the array can use
(in this case 9 - how dumb is that?). I then decided to attempt to make
modules to circumvent this issue, but it's becoming a lot more hassle
than it's worth, and frankly, this would easy be solved with a simple
macro of sorts, which I implemented later as something like:
#constant max length
This way to make it make more sense to me, I could say thearray.max
instead of using "length" which lies to anyone who uses it that way.
Thaaaaat's programming for you!
