Note for Ripcord users: Slack changed their username & password sign-in format yet again, and Ripcord will need to be updated for it. In the meantime, the "Import from Browser" option in Ripcord works fine, so just use that instead.

Reserved identifiers in C

You aren't supposed to create identifiers that match these patterns, if you're trying to write portable, future-proof C code. But you probably are. We all are.

Because these rules aren't nice, and you won't be warned that you've broken one.

Is it worth it?

Cosmopolitan C Library: "build-once run-anywhere c without devops"

Purports to create small ~40kb executables that run on Linux, Mac, Windows, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD. In the same binary.

Taking a day off from AoC. Already in the middle of doing something else that's fun, and I don't want to stop :)

(The challenge looks like it will be fun, though.)

AoC 2020 day 15 

51 minutes to try to understand wtf the description was. Really hard to understand.
30 seconds of programming for part 1. Changed 1 line and reran it for part 2, submitted that answer within 20 seconds of part 1. 🤷 Not a fan of today's.

AoC 2020 day 13, part 2, can't solve 

I don't know how to solve this problem. Is there some bit of math knowledge about prime numbers I'm missing? I don't know much about number theory.

I've never had to look at a hint for an AoC day before, and I don't want to start now, so I might drop out.

I don't recognize any of the people on the Merveilles leaderboard who are still participating.

Question: what's the best classic Macintosh programmer's text editor that has multiple undo, and won't hog the memory on an 8mb RAM System 7 or 6 computer?

BBEdit 3 and later are too slow and use too much memory. QUED/M I could only find a demo version of 2.7.2 for, and 3.0 doesn't work in Mini vMac (copy protection shenanigans?)

AoC 2020 Day 12 done. Wasted 15 minutes because I typo'd a variable name 🤦

Most fun AoC 2020 day yet! Day 11 done :) Final time: 00:44:01

Just used plain C today.

"Zen and the Art of Resource Editing, Fourth Edition" foreword, written by... ?!

What was the first (known) maths mistake?

Beer, multiple numbering systems, accounting, civilization

Who are "(anonymous user #375802)" and "(anonymous user #997792)" on the Merveilles AoC private leaderboard?
