I really enjoyed AoC's puzzle for day 16 this year. Doing a bunch of pattern matching in Elixir to decode binary data is fun, really happy with the solution I ended up with.

Once again, I got a new PB for Lost Judgment in today's stream: 2:55:27, under 3 hours for the first time!

It seems that not having to go to work anymore does not make me immune to migraines.

Got a new PB for the Lost Judgment speedrun while streaming on Tuesday: 3:08:51! Thanks to the folks who were hanging out for this, it was really fun. I'm planning to stream more attempts soon, including at least one this weekend, so look out for that if you're interested.

This week is my last week working at Stripe. I'm really gonna miss all the great people I've gotten to work with, but I'm long overdue for some rest. Not sure what comes next, I'll figure that out later.

Yesterday, I did my first attempt at a Lost Judgment Any% speedrun. Under 4 hours was my goal, and I came in just under that, so I'm pretty happy! Lots of room here to improve.

If I ever start a company, we'll use Slack but there'll be no work talk allowed in there, only shitposting.

Relay.swift has a new home on GitHub. It's now part of the relay-tools organization! I hope this will make it easier for folks to discover.

Oh look, all cops are still bastards. Jacob Blake did not deserve to die. The police are still a corrupt institution causing significantly more harm than good.

I wonder what it would take for the US to have a real left-wing political party.

Made myself a really good bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich this morning. Take days off if you can, it rules.

I just replaced my broken garbage disposal by myself! It seems like something should have gone wrong, like when you write some new code and it works on the first try.

I was so close to having lunch at a reasonable time but then I had not one but two GrubHub orders get canceled on me. So now I'm eating Arby's at 1:40pm.
