It's Sunday, the sun is shining, social distancing rules have been relaxed a bit, you know what that means: empty energy gel packs are back on the road sides, because there's no extra points on Strava for not littering the place.

Software developer self care is also fixing horrible error messages that make you lose so much time to avoid being bitten by it again and avoid other failing into this too.

Remember: if something is hard to debug, it's 95% of the time because you don't have the good information because it's not given to you.

Like good documentation, good errors messages save HOURS to so much people while it's not the funniest thing to do, it's one of the most important.

Traditional media art people, I am once again asking for advice...

Is there such a thing as coloured pencils that erase reasonably well, and if so what should I look for?

I've been using Pilot Colour ENO refills since 0.7mm mechanical pencils are inexpensive, but the refills themselves are hard to come by locally and take forever to get shipped at the best of times. (And now really isn't, not for anything shipping internationally.)
