I assume most people here have more projects and things they want to learn than they have free time.
What guidelines do you use pick what to do and what not to do?

@compass_straight_edge actually it's more like there isn't enough space in my brain to learn all the stuff I would like to have instant access to without using google ex: a programming language. Other than that the only true instant access knowledge I have is merely business knowledge and useless trivia.

@alex On the programming language matter, I can suggest that you study algorithms and data structures instead.Once you know that, you will see that all programming languages are the same tool from different brands.
(Ofc, some break easily and others have a life time warranty)

@compass_straight_edge yes i can already understand almost all code, but if i want to write code I need the fucking manual in one hand. It's frustrating beyond belief.


@alex I think John Maddog has made the same complain but I'm not sure.
