I like to think I'm good at troubleshooting. For work and for fun, I've gone through circuits to figure out why things don't work. Same with software. It can be kind of fun, like a puzzle.

The key is to have something to go on, some little crack in the facade of the problem to pick at until you can pull a bigger piece of it away, revealing another crack. And so on.

It's actually been a software problem that's giving me grief lately. Specifically, with wireguard. And I haven't found the crack yet. I will at some point, but right now I don't really absolutely need to get this resolved, so I'm poking it and trying again later. Sometimes, for mental health, you need to do something like that.
