AoC day 9 wasn't exciting, but at least it wasn't tedious :) I did this one as soon as it was posted, using my C++ starter file, but it mostly got in the way, because the problem was simple. Should have just used C for this one 😅
(Days 7 and 8 were the only other two I did right as they were posted, and they were harder problems. I had used C++ on those two days, but not the others.)
There's a QEMU advent calendar and it's kind of amazing. Every day is a new bootable VM that does something nifty.

"...the behavior of C’s governing body is very clear. We will not introduce warnings into your old code, even if that old code could be doing something dangerous. We will not steer you away from mistakes, because that could shake the veneer that what your old code does is, in fact, wrong. We will not make it easier for new programmers to write better C code."
