comment How do I find a decent hobby?
+1 For "Math and computational work can be very isolating so I'd recommend you look for something that will expand your social and physical engagement." I also liked your suggestion about crafts. I myself practice Origami as a hobby. Learning Origami used to be difficult in earlier days, but with the help of huge number of youtube videos one can make a lot of progress, even if we are alone.
comment How do you read programming books?
+1 For "But for exercises and help and understanding at the low level - they have nothing on resources like Rosetta Code, Stack Overflow, Project Euler, and even Wikipedia. " I also try to compare the code in a language I know to the code in the language I am trying to learn.
comment Review of my task collection system
