Pinned toot

Have been a musician for most of my life and a computer tinkerer for all of it. I'm currently rediscovering my long-neglected love of all kinds of technology alongside my desire to live with less.

Great to be here, and super excited to see all the inspiration here in town 🙏

Just a reminder guys
Don't use facebook
If you have facebook apps installed on anything delete them as soon as possible and consider resetting the device

The only reason that Facebook's actions are legal are because the people who make the laws are old and haven't accounted for the kind of (currently legal) criminal activity Facebook does.

Put up some notes I took from the book "Algorithms To Live By" on my site. It's kind of a mega dump, but I tried to organize it as a tickler for interesting things I found in there.

Just finished day 20 of and it's starting to really push my limits of looping over everything tons of times

Reminding myself today of a quote I found anonymously online:

“if you feel like everyone hates you, you need to sleep,
and if you feel like you hate everyone else, you need to eat.”

Client: Can you do this thing?
Client: Can you do this thing?
Client: Can you do this thing right now?
Client: We really need you to do this thing.
Client: We need this thing done right now!!!
Me: OK, let me look at it.
Me: You didn't give me this bit.
Client: Oh, sorry, give me a few minutes.
Me: Twiddles thumbs for two hours.

Was able to finish all of today's . When all you have is a for loop, everything looks like a list

Anybody keep anything like a coding diary for your own reference? I've been noting down things I have to look up more than three times (in a reasonable timeframe) but am finding it a bit unwieldy and am wondering about how anybody else approaches this problem between memory and the entire documentation.

Okay part 2 of today's went well over my head in terms of any kind of ability to solve it. Now is when I slowly do research and advance at the snails pace. I had a good run of 9 straight days of solving though!

I'm reading this article about Forth and I am almost 100% positive I found it on here and saved it. I don't even know what I'm really reading but it's fascinating.

Just made some sprouting vessels out of milk cartons to catch drip water. I WILL succeed at sprouting seeds this time

Finished up Day 8 of . I liked this one as I was able to chill out enough to make a plan and move forward on it instead of flailing around and praying the code works

Having AoC start up at the end of the day is so tempting. I was just getting ready for bed and it gives me an excuse to say "just one more"
