I recently had a friend tell me that I was good at naming things. But I’m tired of that. I want to be good at something else, or at least be presented with some options from which I can just choose and spend my energy elsewhere. “There’s an algorithm for that!” I wish I hadn’t [...]
I remembered today I had been here before: trying to set up an Eclipse external tool configuration for asdoc generation.
