She must be bored…
Do you know those moments where you see something gives you an idea and on the chain of events that need to happen to realize that idea you get a ton of additional ideas that you feel totally necessary even before you finish off the initial thing?
I have it all the time 🙄
This evening for example I saw a post on lobste.rs about the “battle stations” of the people there. Basically an extended version of those “post your desktop” threads. So I thought I’ll share some pictures from Instagram there… Then I thought I should not post the Instagram link directly and instead upload the pictures to my server. Then I thought, hey I have this nice short URL (k0r.eu) and I could use that to link to the pictures. Then I thought, I should, instead of simply static files have an actual URL shortener there.
This then went on to a brief period of data structure research and now I’m currently writing my own tiny URL shortener service 🙄
Am I the only one? Tell me in the comments.
