That moment when installing that open source app you found that’s supposed to save you so much time becomes a whole day exercise in debugging said app and *almost* getting it working… at least I now know it inside out and there’s hopefully just one more bit to fix… not sure if writing it from scratch would have taken longer (probably). </rant>
@aral I sometimes try to use iterative deeping as my search algorithm: give myself 5 minute to get each options working or figure out its lousy; then try each survivor for 20 minutes; then maybe 1hr. Usually by then it's clear what to do. Sometimes considering my own implementation effort as one of those options.
