Finally, spring. It feels like we are slowly starting to come out of the long winter — the sun is out more often, and that glum London chill is starting to slowly lift. Something inside is stirring and shifting as well, reaching towards the warmth, more willing to take risks, be vulnerable, and ask for help.
After what feels like a lifetime of winter — with a whole lot of love, struggle, support, and hard work — finally, spring.
I'm really struggling to organise my time to work on projects these days (SwiftUI and Chinese).
I've been working on them after work before but that wasn't sustainable as I tend to be tired in the evenings and want to have more energy for family things.
Now I started trying to wake up early (~6am), but I often fail to go to bed early enough, and to wake up early enough, and so only manage about one productive hour or so, while I need at least two.
Carried a full grocery load, two pizzas, and a little dessert bag today. Continuing being amazed by this machine. @Tingyi 🚲
@zens Ahh yes. So in essence this project just became "write some classes that wrap around a bunch of text files." 😆
@zens Yeah, I saw this, and this helps on an ad-hoc basis (My arbitrary guess is that people are using it to find out their lunar birthdays in order to work out horoscopes and the like). But if for example I want to be reminded every year of when the Ghost Festival starts so I can prepare for it, that doesn't help.
@zens Agree with your analysis and it seems simple enough. But the fact that no such tools come up in searching the web makes me think (given the potentially huge audience for such a service) that things might not be just as simple!
Art × Tech. Running a tiny creative studio in London. Really into #chess these days.
