    I Love Programming

    It feels deeply cathartic. Like what I think people feel when they build things. I like building things too, but I am better at programming. I should program something now. It'll likely make me feel better.

    Been using the computer

    since age 3 on my parents' Windows 95. Now I write personal scripts, mess with open source, and occasionally code if I know what I'm doing. Really fun stuff when you learn exactly how to add a feature or do something that you want that you normally couldn't!
