Programmers PSA - Learn to justify your effort 

mrlacey.com/2020/07/youve-only

You've only added two lines - why did that take two days!

Because:

* The issue was reported with a vague description of how to recreate it.
* The reported issue was related to functionality, I'm not familiar with. 
* I took the time to investigate the real cause of the issue, not just looking at the symptoms. 
* I investigated if there were other ways of getting to the same problem, not just the reported reproduction steps.
* I took the time to verify if there were other parts of the code that might be affected in similar ways.
* When I found the cause of the issue, I looked to find the simplest way of fixing it that would have minimal risk of introducing side-effects.
* I tested the change thoroughly and verified that it addressed the problem for all the different code paths that were affected.

Damn, is nice. I don't understand how people can argue that Free Software isn't good enouth for, say, grandma and grandpa.

I understand that people want photoshop and whatnot, but many people can easily live without.

I suppose it's just a matter of people not being familiar with the benefits, and the higher barrier of entry. Otherwise, why wouldn't people at least try it?

old screenshot btw, no GCV3 anymore so don't need to worry about that.

yes, this pandemic is stressful, but at least it is leading to lots of creativity and new ideas *puts finger to earpiece* i am hearing that it is not in fact doing that

Yes.

Getting kinda tired of software where the elevator pitch includes the implementation language.

I get it, rust is cool. Now maybe write some interesting things?
