I just came off a week's "vacation".
It was ... okay. Mostly we stayed around the house and read books, etc. It felt a little like summer vacation when I was a nerdy middle schooler.
It is hot as balls, and the outside was not enticing.
I deliberately avoided any contact with work, which I think might have been a bit frustrating for my colleagues, but 🤷
I'm back and work now, and trying to re-engage with the outside world, which I've been trying to pretend doesn't exist for a while.
@emdeesee True story: years ago, when I tried to learn Haskell, I gave up after a couple of functions of my first test project (a sudoku solver) because I couldn't figure out how to make it compile, due to incompatibilities between some number types (I only used integers BTW) 🤷🏼♂️
In "Array languages for Clojurians," Dave Liepmann looks at APL and its descendants - reimplementing details along the way. The historical context enriches the read and puts the concepts within reach of mere mortals such as myself. http://appliedscience.studio/articles/array-programming-for-clojurists.html #clojure #lisp #apl
When I was younger, I looked forward to storms, because they seemed to wash allergens out of the air, bringing a day or two of relief.
Lately, I can tell when storm's a-comin' because my allergies act up, and continue to be bothersome until the rains pass and things dry out some.
I suppose this is because the weather is bringing allergens at higher altitudes closer to ground level ...?
Anyway -- what's up with that? 🤧
