    I'd probably go with a Whitelist system if I did. Longtimers like Neo would be on not a problem, but I'd rather not straight public open it to anyone that drops by either. Makes for a mess, especially with FTB enhancements.

  5. In Topic: Programming with a learning disorder

    Posted 30 Oct 2014

    As an Aspie, it really does become a matter of letting it dominate you or deciding to use it to your advantage. I didn't know that's what it was until I was ~18, but it made a lot of sense with things in my past. Actually, it's probably a good thing I learned so late, it made it far harder to use that as a crutch. I'd even told the doctor any pills he gave me would go down a toilet, mainly because I saw no need to get an expensive addiction to something I'd done fine without.

    One thing to note is that my case is unusual in that I'm high on the range and can control it a lot more than others I know. Some legitimately need the help, and should get it. There are others that use it as a crutch that are higher level than me, and I won't hesitate to call them out on it.

    Your case may be entirely different, who knows, but don't let it rule you. Seeing a counselor about things isn't a sign of weakness, it's asking for help in your everyday battle instead of submitting. That takes some courage to do, and the stigma around it is completely unwarranted.

    Yes, programming is hard. Yes, it takes a ton of time to get good at for most people. It wasn't until I was probably 20 that it really clicked for me, and I'd been at it since I was maybe 8 or 9. Pick a language, and learn it through. Don't bother with others until you actually need them. The only reason you should be learning multiple is if classes require it, or you're picking a strong group of One Enterprise OO (C++, C#, Java), One Scripting (Ruby, Python, Perl), and One Functional (Scheme, Haskell, Erlang.) Even then, one at a time for at least a few months or you'll burn dry.

    Hey are you the same lemur who used to be around the Computer Help Forums? I haven't been there since forever, but I saw your username and it looked familiar.

    Haha... I'm trying to get into development but I'm having a rough time. q w q Definitely not for the weak hearted I'm noticing. I think I still want to focus more on drawing, but programming seems like a new medium I want to explore, you know? >:3 (Yeah, I'm one of those brats who suddenly wants to make games with no previous experience hur...) It's good that you still d...

    Just stalked and found your deviantArt (aka clicked "portfolio" out of curiosity)... Even though it's been a while since you've posted (I understand), there's some pretty neat stuff, I gotta say :D Just thought I'd drop by and say that.

    Good point. BTW, ran into Andrew this morning. First thing he said to me was "Sorry I haven't got back to your friend, busy week at work" Expect to hear from him.
