Back to Paper Modeller (?)

So, I'll try to exploit unemployment and work on the paper modeller again. That means restarting from scratch again, reusing pure functions (yeah, I have some of those!!!!44).
I'll try to discipline myself again and write better code, but I guess I'll fail again. I even fell with the very first step: I just can't think of a way to avoid using globals with WindProc (and the number will grow, since it's an event based program).

The CNC file editor was a great experience, I learned a lot with it.

Fucking boring journal post.

Anyhoo, I'll do my best (...) to be a programmer this time.

Starting out with the beleif that your going to fail can be really destructive and demoralizing.

A more constructive approach is to use your previous failure to learn. It would also make a great journal entry.

What was your goal?
Why did you consider it a failure?
What can you do to improve this time?

And remember, failure is not a bad thing, without it we don't learn anything new.

I know what you meant. My comments are still valid in either case.

Good luck with the project.
