    Make a titty simulator with hardcore jiggle physics and lactation. There should be sliders for the settings. You want a really realistic relationship with gravity and anatomy. Use soft-body physics, 3d models, whatever it takes. Realistically would be awesome to where you can move the light source. And if you're up for it, various bras which you can put on and off; realistic fabrics have been done before. There is probably a way to add beads of sweat too.

    After that, some of anon can make an ass simulator which shoots poopy.

    The issue with you fricks is that you write utilities for others to gain wealth instead of writing utilities for yourself. What do YOU need. When you’re sitting on a computer do you ever find points of frustration or inefficiency and think “that can be streamlined,” or do you just say “that sucks.” Find places where you think your computing experience is lacking, or find a function that you could make good use of, and turn that into a software tool.

    Even if it already exists.

    Do you need a calendar app? Don’t download one, write one. That way you can get fine grained control over what it does, how it functions, and what functionality it has. Maybe you want your calendar published on an RSS feed for others to read, that’s something you can put in your calendar app.

    Stop trying to make “the next big thing” and just make things.

    What helps me is to take a more experimental approach. I've been learning WebGL. Yesterday I learned how to draw 4 sided shapes. Today I plan to refactor my code because I found out I'm calling functions where I don't need to and then get a shape to move around, and if there's time get the shape to rotate. Just messing around basically, there's no long term goal but if I get good enough then maybe a bigger project will unveil itself.

      Straight up. Would be awesome if someone just made light versions of basic software. Like what about an OBS that just screen captures with the tradeoff of it being very soft on the CPUs. Pretty much every photoshop needs an ms paint. Same is true for videogames. Like a bitesize version of dota 2/lol which a beginner can pick up intuitively.

      I can't because I'm a moron, but maybe OP is smart enough.

        I totally agree. The value of lightweight, fast software cannot be understated.
        But for something like OBS or PS, would take a skilled C programmer that understands the work being done.

        You can make faster software, with little skill by just avoiding unnecessary crap even though you're coding in JS/python and interfacing with SQlite or something like that.

After 5 years I'm now done with studying this field, at least from a programming centered approach, the only stuff I've built purely for myself have been a few automation scripts and some TUI stuff for fun, I don't 'need' any software that I can build myself and I don't really get enjoyment from programming, I get enjoyment from studying things like operating systems, algorithms and networking.

        right but reddit is even worse, so what else is there? I wouldn't even mind paying money but any course stuff I bought online around programming ended up feeling like a total grift.
        I've been trying to just stick to wikis but then you're not interacting with anyone which isn't as fun.

        AI is a gold rush and there's lots of room to learn, experiment and make wacky shit and conceptually they're simple (so easy to get into) but you can scale to insane shit. And the best part, there's lots of breakthroughs every day, so you can be the first to implement new, ground breaking research.

        llm's don't interest me much. Similar to people obsessing over webdev tools I just don't get what they're seeing. Llm's seem useful in fields like dentistry and other areas to assist human analysis or give a person a direct computed guess from a tremendous amount of data but the whole gold rush culture around putting a chatbot or "ai assisted" tool everywhere just reminds me of when everyone were hiring chaos mathematicians because it was the new hip thing that would fix everything but it bore limited fruit in the end.
