I'm writing a retrospective on 2018 on my blog. Part 1 was on my book I'm writing, part 2 is going to be on my job as a programmer/sysadmin, but I wonder, should I write a part 3 on mental health?
This is something I kinda want to write about because it's a cause that is dear to my heart, but it's also hard to write about...
When designing a user interface, imagine some old woman using it, say Margaret Hamilton, and she's clicking your app's buttons and saying to you, as old people do,
"Young whippersnapper, when I was your age, I sent 24 people to the ACTUAL MOON with my software in 4K of RAM and here I am clicking your button and it takes ten seconds to load a 50 megabyte video ad and then it crashes
I'm not even ANGRY with you, I'm just disappointed."
Heya, check out my new track, a Commodore 64 style song called Lost Decade (a PSOne style version will come out after I get computer access back) https://soundcloud.com/djomnimaga . There is also a version that won't be completed, the Room... https://soundcloud.com/djomnimaga

sometimes I find my life depressing but then I read someone else's story and I find there's people worse than me and my life is kinda fun next to them
moral of the story: don't give up <3
Sysadmin, programmer, writer, artist, musician, friendly instance admin. I run a bunch of stuff. Check out my novel, Zarmina.
This instance is mainly for the graphic calculator community, but is open to programmers, artists and related fields.
This is an instance for those who used to put games and hack on their TI-83+ instead of actually doing their math homework on it back in high school. Those who picked up programming because it's fun. Those who will put their favourite programming languages to creative uses and maybe make up new ones. You are encouraged to show your projects off on this instance and show other users of the fediverse what you're able of.
Mostly everything is allowed, but just keep it friendly, okay? No abuse, use common sense. We're just a bunch of nerds here. All hail the mighty walrus.
