My concerns are this: I am starting to understand/read code again. I have a friend who claims that a lot of knowledge is acquisition-state dependent, which is to say, you can only use it if you are in the same state you were when you learned it. A primary example of this is tossing a rope in the air in such as way as to cause the rope to twist itself into a knot on the way down. Ma Groover, in her ill-spent youth, once learned that trick on Duval Street in Key West. It was around 3 am and I was very, very, very relaxed. I was also with about 25 buskers and they were so delighted that I was able to do the trick, they gave me the rope. Forty-odd years later, I clearly have never been that relaxed, young, or surrounded by buskers ever again, because that was the only time I could do it. But I digress.
It is going to take months to recover from the sheer quantity of coffee and junk food required to read code. Why couldn’t I have learned it while drinking martinis? Oh. I did. Maybe that’s the struggle here.
