To me, the thing that exemplifies "work smarter, not harder" is the Fallout 3 train hat - instead of creating an entirely new system for a train, they just have an NPC wearing a hat which is an entire train, hidden under the floor and running very quickly.
It's absurd, and someone could have spent a lot of time and effort on a new system to get the the same result in a less absurd way. But this works, so why not?
So my new motto is, "don't be afraid to wear a train as a hat."
@arturovm yes, but also, the kid is splashing all over the place. Be sure to bring dry clothes.
I’ve been rewriting a major OSS side project of mine, and although I’ve only covered a tiny fraction of the original functionality, I’m quite pleased with the results. I’ve seen a few people complain about the issue the project solves, so that motivated me to start over again.
(If you’ve been following me for a while in other decentralized networks, you might know what I’m talking about 😉 I’m not ready to announce it yet 🤫)
