I feel like I should blog a bit more, but generally don’t have much to say at the moment. Which has 2 causes I think. The first is that small things end up on Twitter and the second is that I can’t get much done anyway since I’ve been having trouble with my hands. This problem with my hands is already annoying me for 6 months and I still have to wait 1 more month before a specialist at the hospital will take a look at it. To be honest, I don’t really expect anything to result from the tests to come.
Aside from it influencing my hobbies it also influences my job. I can’t get stuff done as quick, or at all, as I used to. Luckily my boss says he understands and wants me to take it easy and look out for my health. But, as a fellow programmer I ask you: how do you program slow? For me that’s not really possible. I either write code, or not at all; 1 or 0. I can’t code “slow”.
It’s really starting to piss me off though and the pain is starting to get worse. Already whilst typing this I’ve being taking a few breaks. I really want to spend some time in investigating Ext.JS and Node.JS. It’s also time to finish the last bits of Maximus-web so we can finally do some beta testing with it. I also miss playing the guitar regularly. On a good day I can play 5 to 10 minutes. After that I can forget about it for some days.
I’m afraid all I can do is take it slow and hope my next hospital visit will bring some good news.
