Digital stuff does not age, they say...
And yet, i start to notice the aging. Most of my software is getting old, and does so faster and faster. I have so many projects that these days it takes years to go full circle in the hopping rotation between them, and often the thing i hop to is out of date, out of it's time, not compatible with the current interfaces, look out of place and so on.
Instead of moving it ahead, i end up dragging it across the time to be up to date, and hop on to the next project. Like falling into a software black hole, complete with time dilation.
Not sure what the future holds - either i keep working in futility on making programs that can do programming for me until i drop below the event horizon, or one day i let it all go and launch away into some new field.
In any case, it's a scary realization that it's been a while since you had much more ideas than time to work on them...
|In mid 70s I providing Telemetry Support for the Apollo Soyez mission. In early 80 I sat Programming a home computer. My first Photoshop was very. 1.1 And now 67 yrs have past I live alone with Lugnut aka Luggy, no more deadlines, no more budget constraints. Now the only race I have is time until I shead my mortal coil, releasing that secret buff of blue smoke that we see when a circuit design gives way to morality. As different parts start break down I fight the eternal clock I now but things in order of importance to me to get done.|
