# I used to think that I was indecisive; now I'm not so sure ...

I've been vacillating between programming environments.

Then it occurred to me that JetBrains offer free licenses for open source projects! So I applied, and demonstrated that this is, in fact, an unpaid open source project -- and they have awarded me a one-year license to ALL their products! They didn't ask me to review or mention this in my project, but here it is all the same.

# So how is the project doing now?

Ahh, it is such a pleasure to be able to refactor ruthlessly and confidently. I have reworked the code for the PlatformIO framework and now the display driver is rock solid and super fast despite using a serial connection. I've yet to rework the keyboard driver, but that will follow soon.

As usual, the code is on GitHub.
