It's over a week into January and just yesterday I restarted simulations for my third chapter for the fourth time since... August(?). It seems no matter how many times I do this, I always find something wrong with the setup or code. It's true that all code has bugs - and all experiments have flaws - but at what point do you stop trying to make it perfect and live with the issues? That probably sounds harder than it is, but when your simulations take a month and a half to run, even fairly large issues start to sound acceptable. It's like losing a field season because you accidentally poisoned the controls.
