I am a $#!*

December 5, 2009

Last I checked on here, I was about to release some code.

Then my next week happened.  Holy crap.  The changes I’d made fixed some specific, repeated complaints various folks have left here, but it caused more harm then good.

After that happened, I straight up got burnt out.  This isn’t live journal, so I’ll keep the emo reasons out.

I find myself spending more time coding lately.  During the summer, I literally did no programming outside of work.  No freelancing, no fun coding, I basically became a “just a paycheck” programmer.  Spent time outside doing fun stuff.

The months are cold again, I find myself indoors.  A freelance gig I picked up is providing for a short term challenge, and it’s pretty fun programming.

I have motivation for this again.  A few projects to square away first.  So, library updates will happen.  Some problems aren’t solvable, as I learned earlier when I abandoned hope.  If I can’t fix them, I will strive to post guidelines / workarounds.

Heh, when venting to a guy at work about this, citing gripes like people who send me stupifying email, he joked, “Maybe they should ask for their money back.”  Well, a lot of people _have_ donated money, and you have my continued thanks.  I am putting it toward my bicycle winter-ization.

    Hey Drew,

    Loved DD_Roundies back in the day (er, 2009), when I was forced to use it for work — IE 6.0 requirement, 200 different brands customized to our software (colors, etc), and then CTO saw rounded corners in a mockup on FireFox and decided it was a must-have feature.

    Oh the pain. I wouldn’t have been able to get even halfway there without DD_Roundies! Thanks, and good luck in your future endeavors.
