Especially when a large part of the comments suggest what I'm doing is not enough. Yes, I know I can do a lot better, but... not during breaks / evenings / holidays. I need to change something.
Quote from: a1ex on April 01, 2019, 11:28:06 PMHowever, my (mostly part-time) job became increasingly demanding, to the point I've started to have major trouble getting things done for both ML and Apertus (even after putting in pretty much all the extra time not claimed by job and family). I feel like I'm solving about 10% of what I want to achieve, and everything else goes to the backburner. And, both being spare-time projects, I've started to question why I'm even doing this.Yes, it's addictive, it's great to see you guys finding it useful, but... it's also draining my energy.

Film makers know what they are doing!Finally, I have several friends filming with the 7D and ML for living - RAW videography of nature and wild life. When talking to them about the 7D, they say that there is nothing in this world that can make them use another camera for what they are doing. Certainly, they have very good reasons to state that. Soon after Danne implemented high-resolution crop recording into the 100D, some of them transferred to the 100D for one single reason - it is smaller, lighter and easier to carry around in areas that are hard to access. But they all say that, despite the lower resolution, video quality from the 7D is much better.
Quote from: skitron on May 13, 2019, 04:49:02 AMFWIW, I put in the kind of hrs you describe trying to get a commercial energy software off the ground. 22,000 hrs of my time in an insanely short calendar span while also working a full time job for 1/2 of those yrs. LOL, I've been the tech project addict with a young family, so I know first hand about dealing with what you want to achieve vs time available vs living a life with family. JMO of course, but my advice is to not let anything dominate your time unless it provides for your family either right now or imminently thru contract. And even then, put family first. Life is short and you can't go backwards when you miss a bunch of it for an addictive tech project.
QuoteAs for monetizing your time investment in ML, maybe reach out to Canon upper management and tell them you'd like to work for them? (provided you'd want to)

QuoteI've actually considered the idea. Maybe I'm wrong, but... to my knowledge, the interesting stuff happens in Japan; look at jobs available at Canon Europe, for example.Yes, I've visited Japan and liked it a lot, but I'm not sure I'm prepared to raise my family there. I'd rather accept a position at Google (which also requires relocation, but at least it would be in Europe).
QuoteHowever, a full time job means I'll have to step down from ML and let someone else do the ground work.
