I’m typing this post in Visual Studio Code because I’m not willing to get Notepad++ to count words live. I’m not even sure it’s possible. I assume it’s possible, but it’s a lot easier to just get VSCode Portable.
Windows is such a weird environment. I don’t miss it. I know I did for a while in the late 1990s and there’s always the one Windows-only app you need (in my case it’s extra frustrating because it’s an ancient Java app Mac barfs on), but just typing and seeing your word count shouldn’t require a lot of effort.
Fridays are my not-work-from-home day and I hadn’t given any thought to how the project would work on them. Breaks, sure, lunch, sure, commute maybe.
But not apps. Not not being able to just copy paste.
