  1. As stupid simple as it is, I keep on telling myself I’d like to try coding the only problem is I have not done so since the 80s. (Commodore 64, if you wanted a game you might have to type it up from a magazine.)
    so I just typed it out, saved it, and opened it up in my web browser.
    I kept on thinking I would need more software than that but it was that easy.
