JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Smack Dab Into The Next Wall

[ #12751 ]
I've hit the point where I can't seem to stay focused on my coding, and I know that this is the thing that destroys people who want to move from the level of 'hobbyist' to 'professional' in anything -- the ability to keep going when it's boring/tedious/difficult. Read about it when I was learning how to write, barely squeaked past it (which is to say, I have difficulty with it but it's not impossible), now I've got to try to learn past it all over again.

Doesn't help that there's a wealth of information out there; it's so easy to get distracted these days. Sometimes I long for the time I spent with a computer when I did not have net access.

Anyways, Googling around and visiting a few of my old haunts reminded me that I once thought I was funny, that I left the game I loved so much, that and that I used to keep a fairly regular blog.

Nostalgia. I can't decide what to be nostalgic about at this point -- the days that I had no net access and it was easier to force myself to learn how to code, or the days when I was able to manage being a full-time student and had lots of free time to do whatever I felt like with.

I'm sure I'll figure it out soon. And, hopefully, push past the last parts of the fuzzy module as well. Maybe some more drawing of the problem will help.
