Title: Status Update 22/11/2020
# Status Update 22/11/2020
You may (or ay not) have noticed, development has come to a halt for the past
few weeks, I'm writing here to announce that I an not dead and I did not forget
about any of my projects. With the lockdown, university and general motivation
going down it is very rare to find myself in the mood to bash my head at a
monitor. But worry not because I still have many ideas for new projects and
impovements to existing ones, it's just that I really don't find the time to
develop that much. During this time I've been trying to make an userspace audio
device for ALSA, this is the first building block for my next big project. I did
not do anything else in the background as I reaaly want to focus on this for the
moment and due to the
documentation about this sort of stuff, it is
taking longer than I have anticipated.
To be honest tough I have been playing a lot of modded minecraft and overwatch
during this period, something I did not do when I was pushing something everyday.
As of when I will get back on track I'd say in february at least, the holydays
are coming and that brings exams. Studying is becoming really hard and the load
is non trivial to say the least, so during this session I doubt I'll have time
to develop. That said if I do not manage to pass most of the exams I have due I
sincerely doubt I'll have the motivation to develop anyways so I better focus on
uni at the moment.
After february I have plans to get a PineBook Pro so I can test all my programs
on an ARM architecture as I feel that this industry should shift more towards
RISC instruction sets. I foresee myself focusing more on making my environment
and to do so I have the rest of my project ideas left, I will
write more on that another time.
I'd also like to invest time in hardware project as I'm studying Electronic
Engineering and that would be a waste to not use my skills in the sector, so
if anyone is interested (which I doubt there even is anyone reading) expect
something in the following months.
Please consider donating, I know it's lame, but I need it just for a confidence
bost, hell even a friendly email would cheer me up in this dire situation.
Have a good day
