i have the same exact problem. i'm trying to go through edx's linux course right now to learn the nitty-gritty terminal stuff i don't know, and then on to python. i keep going on /g/ and bookmarking threads and never getting anything done. i've had this problem since middle school. wasting time on bullshit and never getting anything done, reading other people's shitpost and opinions instead of actually learning. yeah i know ABOUT a ton of programs and cool little things people post on /g/, but i don't actually KNOW any of it. i hate it so much.

I hear that some people exercise when they have that problem. Full body calisthetics (body weight) workout keeps the energy level down enough to focus with whatever's leftover.

YMMV but try to start every day with 30-60 minutes of reading or coding. First thing. Before literally anything else. It helped me a lot.

Firefox also does this when downloading any crack. Most software is designed for idiots (zoomers and actual boomers). Just disable it.

Considering Google changes their API every 5 minutes or so, the version from the default Ubuntu/Debian repositories is dated as fuck. Use git instead and clone upstream.

Waterfox has been bought by some advertising company. Just use the tor browser (with or without tor itself).

Google pushed and pushes Chrome like there's no tomorrow. It effectively replaced shady toolbars as sneaky 3rd party installs. Even some driver installers come with it for Christ's sake.

Is it worth trying to learn programming? I'm talking about learning it in your spare time at home, rather than going to school for it. I'm 28 and I've no training in programming at all, but I always found the idea of it fascinating. I know that it would take a very long time to master something, and being self taught might never earn you any sort of career from it at all - but it just seems like a cool thing to do, and I find myself with a lot of free time presently. Or, would it be a waste of time and should I spend my time trying to learn/train in something else? Also, if I were to start what would be a good language to pick for a beginner? Pic unrelated

I have the same feeling as OP, used computers since I was 7 (2003) but never thought about programming, now I'm kinda interested, but I don't have the idea of what can I do with programming.
I don't want to develop cash grab mobile games, and I don't feel like working for website companies.

So what can I do with programing? What does actual programmers work with?
>>
>>74811286
No it's not worth it. The only excuse to ever learn coding is when you need it to accomplish a goal. People who make it their goal to learn coding for coding's sake end up as code monkeys developing unnecessary software.
>>
Unironically just install scratch and mess with it for a bit. It's a visual programming language aimed at kids, but it's a fun way to test the waters of programming even if you're an adult. You'll soon know whether or not you want to pursue this hobby more seriously and learn a real language. If you do, with your particular mindset I'd suggest you learn python.

>>74811286

I self started seriously learned programming when I was 33, it took times to understand with programming.

The benifit of learning programming, it also improve your mind and the way of thinking.
