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"
