Cope is a would-be writer with a nasty habit of multi-tasking. Not that there's anything bad about that, it's standard procedure for any 8-hour desk job. But the way he does it is like the mental equivalent of having too many computer programs all running at the same time. The result is like trying to juggle with only one arm. Including the lag.
Hence his many unfinished projects.
One of his ways of getting any of his projects done is to just have one idea on his mind. Focus. One idea, one goal. Then let him bulldoze his way to get to it. Collateral damage be damned.
The "docs" are honestly soo frustrating. Eg. positionType : "Returns the current position type of the message window." Yes, great. could you please also tell me if 0 was bottom or top, so i don't have to start a playtest to see, because i keep forgetting it all the time, and what are the docs even for, if not that? (it's top btw...)
