Why am I not writing code consistently?

I realized I have no goal or a project I'm really passionate about. I do like to write small useful scripts but I've been struggling having any ideas lately.

Got any tips to get over the hump?

There is also a 1974 film adaptation of the novel.

@matiaslavik i had some stability issues in the past. But adding some parameters to the URL before sharing it to friends helped:

meet.jit.si/MYSUPERCOOLROOM#co

basically turns down video quality and disables it by default.

Using alternative instances can also help:
github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wi

Also, using the phone-call function, if the instance allows it :)

Also, regarding : it is probably a bad idea if everyone jumps on their main instance. It's ! it! Or use any of the already existing instances out there: github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/wi
