still in the fun-coding doldrums.

but i did realise the little web page display thing that i run on an android tablet to show me what's playing on the jukebox, and whose refresh rate option only goes as low as once-per-minute, might respond to a meta-refresh tag. one line added to the noddy node script and now it updates within 10 seconds of the song changing.

ten months pass...

Is it a signal of maturity or hubris to be able to push automatic updates upon release? Does the answer to the question depend upon the audience for the update?

To try to answer the question, what if your work and hobbies coincide, you have some leeway in the projects you choose for work, and you need the structure and motivation that work provides? (I don't qualify to ask.)

unrelated question - how do you stop your eyes from hurting after looking at code all day?

Only read well-written code.

some time last year i started doing serious eye exercises, and they've helped. i still do the old temple rubs but massaging below the eyes feels incredibly comforting. eyebrows and some forehead rubs are good, too. i haven't really read anything definitive in terms of what works and what doesn't though, so i've just been trying random stuff. also, monitor position, body posture, and neck and head position i find help a lot, weirdly enough

i've only ever coded professionally in dark mode, so i'm not sure if light vs dark mode has any effect, personally
