Time of false starts
Sort of intellectually frustrated lately.
Still waiting for the publisher to return beta-test results on my latest submission. Trying to keep the mental decks clear for some serious debugging. This suspended-animation mode is always more stressful than actual debugging work!
Every morning I have a fresh thought that seems worthy and interesting. I start to write it here, then pause to take a closer look at the data and logic .... Nope, that doesn't hold water.
Every week I start a new digital model, then decide it's really not worth the trouble.
Outside the computer, things are going well. This year I've been steering more of my life into physical tasks that CAN'T
be done on the computer, like gardening, walking
Those things bear satisfying tangible
results, so maybe I shouldn't fret about the unsatisfying computerized crap.
