AoC day 4 success 

@tomasteck Considering this toot you posted three weeks ago, you've come a lot further than that!

You're in the midst of Mordor, shrugging off orcs left, right and centre; you're just trying to find signal so you can book your eagle ride home 😎

Well done 👏

AoC day 4 success 

His thought turned to the Calendar, but there was no comfort there, only dread and danger. No sooner had he come in sight of unknown data concepts, burning far away, than he was aware of a change in his burden. Sam felt that he had from now on only two choices: to forbear the Advent of Code, though it would torment him; or to claim it, and challenge the Challenges that sat in their dark hold beyond the darkness of the Abyss.

Already the AoC tempted him, gnawing at his will and reason. Wild fantasies arose in his mind; and he saw Samwise the L33t, Savior of Christmas, striding with flawless code across the darkened land, and armies flocking to his call as he marched to the overthrow of Eric Wastl. He had only to gather the stars and claim them for his own, and all this could be.

In that hour of trial it was his love of his free time that helped most to hold him firm; but also deep down in him lived still unconquered his plain hobbit-sense: he knew in the core of his heart that he was not large enough to bear such a burden, even if such visions were not a mere cheat to betray him. Simple coding projects of a free programmer was all his need and due, not a 30 million lines of code problem; his own hands to use, not the libraries imported just for the task.
