Seriously? Change the world huh? With something that's been around for ages? I saw similar DOS apps in the 90s. Google will do this for you too. This is far from Earth shattering. No, changing the world means solving real problems to keep this Earth and our species alive. But you dude-bros have always been full of it. I'm a girl and been coding for 30 years. What sucks is, you will get more credit for this than I ever will, and I've worked on mission-critical code. But please tell me how this is "different".

Hey Paige! Looks like you're new here, so welcome to first of all. Secondly, I'm sure you must have a lot of amazing stories and useful experiences to share from your 30 years of coding career solving real problems. 😇
Publish them, and I bet the folks here will appreciate it. And hey, you might just get a lot more credit than you think.

Meanwhile, we will step up our game and try solving bigger problems as well. 🛠

Dude-bro from Team XenoX 🔥

What in the world did you joined for? To put people down? 🙄

Thank you for reminding us all that there is such a thing as toxic femininity. Not cool to rain on another person's parade like that.

To the author of this neat project and anyone else that might feel put off by comments and people like that, please just don't. Solve the problems you encounter and do it with pride. No matter how small the step, YOU did it. That is a victory, and don't let anybody tell you any different.

Sharing your work and your positivity with the world will expose you to toxic comments and ad-hominem attacks like this. Face the criticism for what it is; take in the constructive criticism but brush off the rest. I'm not saying you shouldn't act decent, we should all be excellent to each other.

Technology and development is for everybody. It sees no race, no gender, and that should be the mindset of a programmer.

Oh, no doubt. If we started moping around after each and every harsh remark, we'd get nothing done. XD

Thanks for the support and kind words, Christopher. 🙏🏼
