@fribbledom I wrote an application to automate transcoding video, that calculated the best output bitrate and resolution to give the best possible quality with the smallest file size. I got it to about 50% done, and I was really proud of it, as it was my first attempt at something so broad. It even got picked up by unRAID as an app. I then found #Tdarr, which did a better job, with a decent GUI, and felt quite deflated, so gave up.
I also had a game I was writing, and had made significant progress with a desktop and Android app, people were even making YouTube demos of it. But I had to quit to look after my kids, and now when I look at it again, I feel like it was a different time, and that I don’t have the skills anymore. It makes me sad that I only completed the first 3 levels.
