  • I don't think there is a "Work Smarter" solution because the madness of ego and whatever else goes into making you work for free like that is likely an affliction that has no intelligence. Thankfully, the dog only occasionally got jealous of the laptops getting all the attention.

    There are times that I think that some day, in the not terribly distant future, we're going to look back and wonder what the hell we were smoking to have burnt the prime of our lives on something so unimportant in the grand scheme

    • That's why I don't take on many projects these days. I took on MacPerl for what I knew to be a limited time. I don't mind "busting my nut" for a short period of time, as long as I can see an end to it, and I don't do it again for a long time. Maybe I'll do something else like that someday. (I'll still get a MacPerl 5.8.x out, but that will likely be quite simple compared to 5.6.x, as it's just doing a rebuild and some testing, maybe a few patches, and I won't let it get in the way of life, rather wait until I have some spare time to spend on it).
