|I'm running into an issue, I s'pose, that seems related to the "curse of knowledge." Everyone tells me in response, "You know too much about the details, etc." But is this really the case? I sincerely wish to ask HN for the fact that I am losing my mind. And it seems to indicate a larger issue, related to the fact that most people literally respond with shock and almost fear when they see me work at my Terminal or vim. I'm afraid to work in public now, honestly, since doing so brings about so much bloody negative reaction. (All of my clients have been this seemingly difficult. I'm starting to worry if I can even work in this city. Months back, say in the summer, a lead developer at cPanel responded with confusion: "What is SASS/LESS/etc?")|
But please review this e-mail (and I'll keep the typos):
Also, did you go through my last e-mail regarding github? You mentioned changes on the site, and github would be he easiest way to keep track of those changes. It would also ensure that we are on the same page. Please review that e-mail. If you did not receive it, please let me know.
I have also looked into digital signage solution that are cheap. We are looking at rough $30-$40 per sign to run a small microcontroller system that can manage those displays. Here is a link to the idea: https://github.com/wireload/screenly-ose
