OK, so, even though we’re only a few lines of code in, the Lister Panel is already half way to doing what it used to do, and it has gained some new features along the way. Next week, I’ll continue building out the system to support the other thing the original system did: layer listing.
At this point, I feel like I speak for everyone when I say that this was, as the preamble implied, an epic battle featuring thousands of orcs and demons and elves and shit. Anyone who was not satisfied with the level of pure adrenaline present in the previous article will surely have been satisfied by this week’s riveting, fast-paced action scenes that really brought the visceral combat of Middle Earth
Of course, one thing that I’ve always been a little confused by is why it’s called “Middle Earth
”. I suppose that’s the kind of thing you actually have to read the books to know. In my mind, “Middle Earth” suggests that it is inside the Earth somewhere, but I don’t know how that’s possible because they have a sky and sun and things like this, don’t they? You can’t see the sun from inside the Earth, that’s just obvious, and I don’t know why the book series is so famous if the author couldn’t even figure that out.
You know what? To hell with Lord of the Rings
. It’s obviously not quality fiction. Next week I will use The Chronicles of Narnia
as a metaphor instead, since they at least understand the basics. Everyone knows you can still see the sun from inside a wardrobe as long as you leave the doors open.
