Building your programming ability? Open "secret" about tech industry: programmers only productive about 3-4 hours/day & fake the rest. No need to sit 8 hours.

So don't burn yourself out! Maybe lie down & visualize, before coding tiny pieces. Understand a single thing in many ways; creates strong bricks as foundation of your knowledge. With stronger bricks, the faster you will be.

Maybe first write down a few different ways of doing something; list advantages & disadvantages of each. "Analyze tradeoffs."

Code's often a poor representation of thought, a thin brittle artifact that executes.

Time it took to reflash a hosed bootloader:

soldering SWD wires: minutes
time trying to reflash: hours
time figuring out how to undo the bootloader protection: tens of minutes
feeling of success: priceless

Mastodon feels like what social media should have always been. I can remember how cool it was to learn about other people and other cultures as a youngster listening to #shortwave radio. . .The "bird site" & "ad-book" were never like that. It was always a bunch of angry people posting pictures of angry things, arguing how awful everyone else is. No real exchange of culture & no real learning about others. I have enjoyed more here in a week than years on other social media. Well played, Mastodon!

it's so bizarre that everyone's judgment of mastodon's success uses the same rubric as twitter's success.

for me, marginalized ppl feeling loved, cared for, and supported in a radical, restorative space is a success and I don't think forbes will ever understand that

Really cool new bootloader from Microsoft. makecode.com/blog/one-chip-to- Comes on the @adafruit Feather M0 Express.

Its makes updating firmware as easy as double tap reset, drag and drop.
