You know the feeling where you've made something which is so ridiculously complicated that even you can barely remember how it works and you have to start writing instructions for the damn thing? Does anybody else ever get that feeling or is it just me? Is there a word for it? :lol:

So am I. But by the looks of things, it'll be hard for you to explain it to us, IX ;)

It's not so much complicated as sprawling. I've been chipping away at this machine for so long that I occasionally have to go look in the code to remember how it's supposed to work. Feature creep is a bitch! :lol:

That looks like a fun machine. Not sure exactly what it does (some sort of Peer Machine by the looks of things). I guess I'll have to wait until you release it :)

I think this needs a new word.
How about „ridicated“ (ridicolous complicated).
The noun would be „ridication“, the verb „to ridicate“ (as an active deed to spoil clarity).
And opposite, „to unridicate“, which would be something IXix, you should may be do on your new machine – or better not?. 8-) ;)

It's only likely to become more complicated as time passes. I've successfully avoided writing docs by pretending to be busy with PeerLFO but I don't think I can keep it up for long. I need to let this cat out of its bag so I'd better get back to writing docs.

Oh! Seems to be very interesting, a new way of automation?

Ridicate. I'm going to start using that all the time. :idea:

Oh, that reminds me that I still gotta write some proper documentation for the Chopper effect. It may look simple, but there's a shitload of functionality under the hood. Writing a manual is gonna be...

Uuuuurrrrrgh!!!

Funny you say that. I was just thinking of using Chopper for an experiment I want to try. Some docs on how it works would be helpful :D

Doc progress has been slow but machine progress has picked up a bit. Feeling my coding mojo (such as it is) again. :dance:

Got to get this thing out so that tinga will have something to do with his days! :D

/me wanders off muttering something about tooltips...
