This might become a series of blog posts discussing a few aspects of webdesign and giving general guidelines and tips on how to avoid common pitfalls and on how to get the proper mindset to think about the problems in this area. The first thing I'll talk about is structure.
Some time ago I was working on an MSPA-like webcomic called Re-Boot. You can go read it here if you feel like going through hundreds of posts of not much really happening. I am great at advertising my things. Anyway, this blog post is about explaining the background behind everything and revealing the thoughts that went into it.
A while back I realized a rather unsettling, but very obvious truth about how the human mind works. It at least gave me an explanation as to why I've been struggling with motivation myself. This blog is about this truth and my way of dealing with it so far.

A while ago I was asked to write an introduction to programming, preferably about Java. However, writing yet another beginners tutorial seems a bit boring and without challenge to me, so I set out to do something different. Instead of a tutorial, I will try to formulate a few core concepts and ideas about computing that should be able to be applied everywhere.
A number of things have happened since I last wrote an entry and I'm currently testing out and fixing as many bugs as I can find (with some testing help by @suntomic) so I can wrap this up neatly and hopefully bring a running instance up on the weekend.

About a month and over 100 commits later, it's almost done. I'm closing in on the final stage of the radiance interface rewrite. All modules compile without warnings and all that's left to do now is to test their functionality and fix all bugs that will inevitably arise during this. After that I can finally merge back into master and push the new radiance version.
Instead of trying to write an entry about my first semester at University, I'll instead revisit the entire year and go over some more or less noteworthy things.

I haven't worked on TyNET in a long time and the main reason why I've held off working on it was a set of problems that have been bugging me for a very long time. I've held off continuing with the rest of the project until I found a solution for them as going on would've only made everything worse in the end.
Sometimes I wonder if I could be somewhere else in life. What kind of person I would be. This kind of question is a bit odd, since it wouldn't be the me today. It would be someone else, leading a completely different life and only sharing a small subset of history with my own. Yet, the thought is intriguing. All these possibilities, formed by endless variables in an unimaginably complex play of entities. Could some of these things be constants? Are there fix points in time? What if everything simply changed from one moment to another? All of this is pointless to ask. Life is in the now, of course.
So uh, I felt like writing a short update on this as I've had a bit of a struggle again the past week. Mostly I've felt rather unmotivated to do exercises and as such haven't done any. This is pretty bad.
