    I bet I could get in a decent 6 exercise full body under 30 minutes.

    I try, but if you are lifting heavy it's taxing.

    I do 3 supersets in 50 minutes give or take.

    Today was:

    • Bench ss Lat Pulldown (90s seconds rest between exercises)
    • OHP ss Rows (60 seconds rest between exercises)
    • Dips ss Curls (45 seconds between exercises)

    It took some time because bench was 7 sets today, but i managed to finish in 50 minutes. Squat days are a little harder, but can be done if you stick to the rest times.

    I'm trying to keep the dependencies at bay, but i know what you mean. Now i understand why there is always job for developers. Shit is pretty hard.

    I asked here what language should i start to learn programming and decided to learn Go.

    I'm doing a music player.

    I was able to make it list the flac files of the current directory, display the tags "Artist - Song" in the terminal and play one after another, but with no feedback whatsoever. Just show the tags of everything and play one after the other. For now this is the only thing it does. I started implementing a simple TUI interface (i'm a little lost here) and will start working on changing to previous and next songs.

    It's been challenging, but i'll slowly get there i think.

    The intention for now is to use this with a file manager like ranger, nnn or similar. Since i only have full albums and it's all well organized in <artist>/<year> - <albumtitle> folders, i want to use the file manager as my library/navigation and launch the player inside the album folder i want to listen. It will open the TUI in the same terminal and show the track tags and i'll be able to control it there.

    The best thing is the little bottom terminal that appears when pressing F4 in Dolphin. When you go to another folder, it goes together with you! And if you cd to another folder, Dolphin does the same.

    It's pure magic.

    I love it. The instant feedback is awesome, specially with multiple selections. The command syntax is intuitive for me and since i didn't use vim that much in the past, it was quick for me to pick up.

    My needs are simple so i just use it vanilla with little configuration. Don't use any plugins for now, so i don't miss anything.

    Anyway, multiple selection is a delight to use. Specially when i use a bulkrename script i made (or the one within nnn) that puts all the filenames in a text file so i can rename using kakoune. Like when i need to rename a bunch of subtitle files (.srt) to match the names of the episodes of a season, it is so simple to select all the text until before the extension (.mp4), yank and just paste in the subtitles just before the .srt, hit :wq and done.

    There was a flash animation that was a mix of poorly drawn super heroes/anime with the book Dom Casmurro. I remember that some character yelled "Capituuuuuuuu" and used some super power in the style of Dragonball.

    This is the only thing i remember. Me and a friend watched that all the time when we were kids.

    It is harder because it was a thing only here in Brazil. It's gone forever.

    The new Xoth is blowing my mind. Listened yesterday, so it's still early to say more than this. This along with The Great Old Ones @Dobbie03 mentioned are the top of the month.

    I'm already using the flag package for command line flags and it's really nice and straightforward.

    I got an ab-wheel that i do in the mornings that i don't go to the gym. Takes 10 minutes to do 3 or 4 sets and it trains the entire core.

    I think the problem will be creating a database with the music. I want something similar to cmus with a library showing artists and albums.

    I don't know, but ranger (python) takes a lot more time to show the contents of folders and to initialize than nnn (C) and lf (Go) even in my recent laptop. More so in a raspberry.

    I talked about rewriting one of my scripts in a programming language just as an exercise to learn the basics, a short term goal, but it's not necessary.

    That's why i didn't want to learn python. I have plenty scripts already. One for converting music, i have a bulkrename script to open filenames in $EDITOR in a list so i can edit the names, save and it will rename the files, a status bar using lemonbar and a simple password manager.

    The end goal is to make a music player similar to cmus.

    I'm gonna look at tcell. Thanks!

    The script i want to reimplement is just for learning. It already works well and it's not really needed.

    I'm not seeking a career in programming exactly. I like it more as a hobby and i think writing a music player like cmus in python would not be ideal. I particularly don't like the language for cli apps because i like these apps to be as lightweight and simple as possible.

    When i switched from ranger (python) to nnn (C) and lf (Go) (terminal file managers), the difference in performance was astonishing.

    But thanks for the response. I'll look more into python.

    I'm interested in C or Go, but i'm open to ideas.

    I have plenty of sh scripts i created to integrate my tools and system, so i have some experience and i don't want a scripting language like python.

    My first plan is to learn the basics of the language and rewrite some of those scripts.

    I think my first pick will be a script that uses ffmpeg to convert my flac files to mp3 or opus. I use sndconv -opus/-mp3 and it checks if there are flac files in the folder (i only have full albums), converts and puts in a folder named "$artist - $album".

    My long term goal is to make a cli/tui music player like cmus.

    UPDATE: i'm having plenty of success with Go right now. I just wrote a basic version of my music conversion script. It's just converting a music i pass as argument to mp3, but i'll keep working on it and adding functionality just to dip my toes in Go. It seems like a good language and i'm having fun!

    Thanks for all the answers!
