Seph's law: Programming is 95% decisions and 5% typing.

You are an inspiration! If people grasp what you've done then you've lowered the fear people have of copying things. That should lead to more attempts, failures, improvements, competition, a true catalyst!




Aw thanks! And yeah I agree. The way to get good at programming is to make lots of stuff.
