Since the last video was much too bling, and not enough spreadsheet. Here's some boring modals, boring error windows and other boring things.

I've been learning a LOT these past few days working on this. Building an OS has been one of my all time dream since I've started learning to code.

I wonder if making operating systems is to programmers, what making a MMORPG is to a game designer. That kind of foolish impossible idea that eventually you put in a drawer in your head and forget.

Anyway, I'd like to be proud I made a thing and put it out there, finally. While I try to convince myself it's okay if no one visits, it's a space on the Internet I've carved out for myself, and I hold on to that intention.

One month to launch!

DM me if you an advance, review copy of 📖 THE HANMOJI HANDBOOK 📖 (hanmoji.org)

Just let me know which publication you will write it for (blogs and websites count!) and your mailing address.

I'm also writing this as a designer who's putting up buy buttons on our book (hanmoji.org) website Trying To Do The Right Thing 🤪

I get it, the publisher industry is a tough business. Most books lose money while some of Hamilton's books made it onto Canadian bestseller lists at some point.

So I have a graphic novel project set in Hong Kong (thehouseonhorsemountain.byjaso). I've thought about submitting it to Anansi Press in the past.
