I was cleaning up and found a tiny briefcase with some kind of blue crystal inside? No idea what this is or what it's from. Best guess: Somewhere a mouse cleric is missing their holy symbol.
Using #git with #TiddlyWiki (via #nodejs) for version control is working pretty nicely! I only have it setup on my private wiki so far, but I will with the public one soon. I'm using it while thinking through a #coding project, and it's helpful and refreshing; writing commit messages help me see/feel that I'm making progress, and TiddlyWiki is a breeze.
As someone who's been using computers since the early 1980s I can say for a fact that computers ARE harder. What's changed are User Interfaces in order to make things APPEAR easier, which doesn't really work for many of us much of the time. Because of this simplicity overlay it's gotten more complex to determine actual problems and solve them well. I truly believe this is intentional, meant to create a new industry--User Support--and take power away from individuals.
Franchising offers a way to standardize user/consumer expectation in the physical world.
On reflection, I'll put my hand up and say that I have gone to big chains instead of indy retailers for a coffee simply because I wasn't in the mood to learn a new way of getting a cuppa.
Anyone out there with wise observations or informative info re franchising meets coops?
Was able to diagnose and fix my family's car troubles using web search and a $7 replacement part. Thankfully the problem we experienced was well discussed online as an issue and had the solution! 😊

No one is born knowing C++. No one is known knowing Python. No one is born knowing POSIX API's. Everyone had to learn it, and everyone learns in their own way. And it is healthy to ask others best practises and what to do. The Bank of Learning won't become insolvent from sharing knowledge.
