Added a new page to the UFO, Discovering My Autism as an Adult, about the revelations and journey of self-discovery that I went on after learning that I was autistic ~3 (?) years ago.
Another insightful read; thank you for sharing!
@bmh, Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it. It was something that I've been meaning to write for a while but putting off out of fear of missing something.
@shadowm00n, Thank you kindly for pointing out the typo! I really appreciate it. I always try to proof read multiple times, but somehow always manage to still leave behind some dumb typos. Apparently I'm only good at finding those in things that OTHER people write. \:
@koshka Both programming and writing have taught me that it's very easy to overlook your own logical or linguistic flaws simply because once you think it's "right" your mind kind of skips over it. It helps to take a lengthy break before proofreading, but it's not foolproof.
Got inspired to redesign the front page for the umpteenth time after listening to too many melancholic Sisters of Mercy songs. Hoping to get another Autism-related article up tomorrow but the writing process has been slower than frozen molasses lately. ):
My eyes no longer burn. You have done a good thing.
Added a new article to the UFO, exploring the metaphor of autism and neurotypicalism being two different operating systems for the brain. Also spiffed up the 404 page so that Macula could have a fairly nice looking home.
A while back, I tried to do a coursea course that required installing an operating system onto my computer in addition to Windows. (It might have been Linux, not sure, because it was a while back, and I've only attempted it once - and I don't know much about operating systems other than Windows.) It was an older one than my current one, and it had less RAM on it. I found that the programs that came with the other
operating system wouldn't run properly and they kept crashing. I think it was the strain of two operating systems attempting to run at the same time on the same computer, and with the RAM on the computer I was using being quite low (not even the half the GB that you get on modern Windows computers). The professor running the course was using an Apple computer and they had no problem with it. The problems the Linux
operating system gets with running programs is probably down to the RAM on a Windows computer being low in the first place.
