2020-12-16 | Subject | Prayer Strap

I broke open mon.py again today. I need to add in the features to fully map IT Docent. I need to stare at the code for quite awhile to orient myself. I didn't put many comments in the code. I wondered why. The comments clutter it up, a bit; that is part of it. I also realized that I considered working on the code a form of prayer: beads running through my mind until the repeating patterns settle in and I can make progress again. I remember finally getting my Z-80 homebrew code running back in 1991 or so, tapping in the machine code with my makeshift front panel, just enough to bootstrap load via the parallel port. I had a similar feeling. Machine code is very unforgiving. Bootstraps are even worse, because you are mostly blind. Ah... bootstrapping, such a varied and appropriate word to current efforts.
