    What Windows 11?

    It's a rolling release rent factory now.

    As a coder...

    from back in the day, I wrote tons of crap like left-pad (inherently obvious if you code at all) and I'd re-write it for every stinking project. It wasn't really so bad, it gave me a break from the hard stuff.

    After a while (and reading some things about structured programming) I first put it in a searchable text (Basic, gotta love it) for cut and paste and then later (C, now there's a language) in headers and link libraries.

    Were I to code today (and I don't because there is no money in it) I think I would still be a little leery of depending on a library I did not completely understand and control.

    I know that's not the style now- use an API! To me that's like putting in a jump to a subroutine in the Apple ][ Rom.
