Nice to read a little book review / journal entry I wrote a year ago and it holds up. :)
"God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater" by Kurt Vonnegut
huh. In #Perl I'm so accustomed to working on hugely fat OO stacks that I had trained my brain to think startup was always slow. 0.03s? Not bad? https://github.com/jhannah/adventofcode/commit/eef914200d15473c72291f66de245a27ada75f1e #AdventOfCode
So mad they stole video of me playing games from my Twitch stream (I'm the monkey playing Pong not the pig on a treadmill (do I LOOK like a guy who uses a treadmill?)) https://youtu.be/FIqvRxb6GNw?t=577
So many people look for social media validation of themselves and their friendships. This is toxic bullshit.
Your TRUE FRIENDS git submodule your code into theirs. https://github.com/yanick/adventofcode/tree/main/friends #AdventOfCode
lol dammit my coworker is making my #Perl look so newb https://github.com/yanick/adventofcode/blob/main/2021/01/part1.pm#L11 #AdventOfCode
crypto (proof of stake)
As part of my ongoing desire to divest away from Proof of Work (PoW) (and diversify my PoS) I moved all my (not much) BTC -> XTZ inside Coinbase (apparently XTZ stakes/rewards inside Coinbase). (I still hope ADA is the future.) https://coinlib.io/public-portfolio/7b46f81fef5b78b4
US POL, Native American rights
The house discussed several bills concerning Native American rights this week:
H.R.2074 - Indian Buffalo Management Act
https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/2074/text/ih (still in the house, discussion postponed)
H.R.2930 - Safeguard Tribal Objects of Patrimony Act of 2021
https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/2930/text/ih (passed the house & sent to the senate)
H.R.4352 - To amend the Act of June 18, 1934, to reaffirm the authority of the Secretary of the Interior to take land into trust for Indian Tribes, and for other purposes.
https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/4352/text/ih (passed the house & sent to the senate)
I'm tentatively in favor of the first two (the third does clarifies some technical language but does...basically nothing else afaik) tho I'll do more research before I call my reps
I may need an intervention. You know those games where you merge two 2s into a 4 block? And two 4s into an 8 block? I just created the 1Sx block (1 sextillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 )). I have 12 million quadrillion points so far (and change). https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.games.joinblocks
"Remember that "We All Quit" sign at a Lincoln Burger King as employees walked off the job en masse? Five months later, those workers and experts say quitting did 'em a lot of good."
OH NO!! They let me go back and do all the work I didn't do in 2015-2020?!? https://adventofcode.com/2015
Holy crap! lynx worked! No ads, no paywall, just the article I wanted to read!

Day 4 complete. Thankfully part 2 was easy given the way I implemented part 1. :)

Day 3, stole some ideas from other people's Day 2s. :) https://github.com/jhannah/advent-of-code-2021/tree/main/perl #AdventOfCode #Perl
Day 2 Part 2 scared me, so I actually wrote tests. :) https://github.com/jhannah/advent-of-code-2021/tree/main/perl #AdventOfCode #Perl
