Been thinking alot about my contributions (or lack thereof) in the open source world. Had a good change of heart after reading Cardinal's post. In particular, the last paragraph.

So I want to do something, I really do. Just very little time, between work and more work. And work isn't even going well, though I have a job offer at PaySystems Inc. I would just have to get my work visa changed, which apparently isn't that difficult for my lawyer.

I am running SuSE now, and it's very nice, very smooth, and easy to install, and maintain. It's now my main work machine. I still have a windows machine, using that for games mostly, and testing. And Photoshop, but that's it. Linux has just gotten too good for me.

So I want to create some applications, I want to create something, or work on something. I have gotten over the need to feed my ego and create something on my own. As has been said, their are enough text editors out there, and really, I should focus on creating something useful.

I found a great list that talks about what the most common things are people want to do on a computer. I guess I will brush up my programming skills, and pick a probject to learn more about. At the same time, I want to use this product. I need a product that will be useful.

Or maybe I am being too picky, or thinking too much. That is a common problem. I think maybe I will stop worrying so much about what to do and just do something.
