Day 9: Done with the collections project in Python. Hurrah to me :)
ok UI designers, listen up. i don't care what type of application you're writing- command line, touch, mouse, GUI, whatever- if you have something i'm supposed to be interacting with, don't change it unless you're given explicit direction to by me.
don't fuck with what's in focus, don't create popups, don't make things clickable that aren't explicit (such as empty space)

Once again the New York Times runs an article about protecting yourself from tracking without disclosing any of its financial relationships with the surveillance and tracking companies mentioned, or the fact that these scripts are being served with the article itself.

Adam: “I graduated from university and started working end 2012. At my first job I worked for way under my market rate. I knew this and was OK with it because they were a good company.
Then I switched jobs in 2013. What I hadn’t accounted for was that my salary at my first job was going to limit my future salary prospects. I had to fight hard for raises at my next job before I was in line with people straight out of school, because they didn’t want to double my salary at my previous company.”
Day 8: Still working at something that I probably should have completed days ago.
I seem to be slow :)
But I am persistent! :)
Aaargh! Why is learning so hard?!
