That is a compliment. It would be great if you could link to my user page, as shown in the image above and post here so that I could keep track. Thanks.
Another person (@Iain) expressed interest in
afre_edge. Since this is a diary, I have some personal (and vulnerable) thoughts on the matter.
The code is already up and running. It should be self-explanatory but let me know if you have any specific questions.
The real test of a command, filter or, more abstractly, an idea is that people use it, hopefully with proper attribution. I would encourage you to use the command itself and not simply replicate it because I came up with it myself, expending time, energy and imagination into it. If it is not satisfactory for your uses, I would prefer that we brainstorm or collaborate to make it better together. That way we can learn from one another.
I am brimming with ideas but don’t usually have the tools or resources to realize them. Thanks to this community and those behind it (in particular, @patdavid and @David_Tschumperle), I have gone from knowing nothing to knowing something and being able to actively help our forum members and visitors. If you answer my questions, give feedback or use my commands, that would help me be much more productive.
A deeper and darker reason for this line of thinking is that, for almost all of my life, people have taken advantage and taken credit for my work. So much so that it is as if I didn’t exist or I were a hindrance. I get nothing in return, or worse: lost time, wages or straight up abuse. It is very painful living like that, impoverished and without anyone to have my back (for real).
Which is why I try to be of good cheer in this forum and in the code with these
(^_^) (>_<). And so some attribution, encouragement and / or collaboration would help keep me going.
