If you didn't know, I've moved to @mattgen88 -- Follow me there!
Day 7 Part 2, in which mattgen88 hurts himself using concurrency... https://github.com/mattgen88/adventofcode/blob/master/2018/07/part2/main.go
I really wanted to have each elf do its thing in a go func, which meant synchronizing all the things. Channels and mutexes and tickers oh my!
Mental Health (-/+)
Once again, too much caffeine turns me into a terrible, high strung individual.
On the positive side, I know the cause. Being self aware helps to manage my mental health.
Too much caffeine makes me incredibly anxious, irritable, high strung, annoyed, and generally nasty. Which leads me down a whole downward spiral of self-loathing. All because of coffee... ugh.
@dconley Turns out I was appending to the wrong list for day 7 part 1. Somehow it managed to work out correct for the example and manage to complete for the real problem set.
Really sad to hear about the behavior in Girl Develop It. Even sadder that the local chapter here is going on hiatus over it. Incredibly inclusive chapter in Buffalo, doing lots of good, and they feel betrayed and heart broken over the allegations and reporting of discrimination by the parent org.
Advent Of Code
Super hyped to see people doing #adventofcode. This year I have a newborn and won't be competing really, but I'll be doing puzzles and maybe I'll go back to finish previous years. This year I stopped thinking in php and now think in golang. Crazy
