Join the club. None of us is getting younger, and from what I can see, most of the active CP members aren't kids.

learning all these technologies feels more and more like a waste of what time I have left.

Once you've learnt to use a few of these frameworks, you realise that they all claim to do the same thing - using the philosophy du jour. Don't get me wrong - some of these ideas are interesting, but if one has to get work out of the door, one sticks to a basic set of tools and uses them.

I especially abhor the rats nest that has developed in web programming, where using one package drags in stuff from 1,001 other packages, leading to an unmaintainable mess.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
