The worst thing is being aware of my visual processing failures. I can still see, and I k ow I'm still seeing the same image, but I know that the meanings I'm giving to shapes aren't what I assigned just a bit ago.
Extremely weird symptom of exhaustion I've either developed or noticed lately it's that I am consciously aware of my mind stalling. I can feel my narrative slur, my senses blur, and my consciousness fuzz, then it returns to normal
Is this what computers feel like when they spinlock
Is this how motors respond to sudden load
@myrrlyn what I love is that programmers as a group are all:
A: 'see, the thing about being a programmer is we apply meta-thought to constantly improve ourselves, we build tools that make our tools better, that's it, a constant upward spiral of tool design and tool use, hack our bodies and minds, Singularity ahoy!!!'
B: (someone proposes fixing C) 'heck NO C is perfect just as it is, you're not improving MY tool, you just need to make yourselves smarter!!!! but not by fixing our tools'
"C is a perfectly good systems and applications language you just have to be a capable programmer" yeah well KDE Dolphin segfaults if you try to manipulate a folder you can read but not write, and the KDE/Qt team are up there in the pinnacle of C programmers, so maybe it's actually irredeemably bad?
