Christmas rock n roll 

I solved advent of code day one (part 1) in rockstar

github.com/johan1a/advent-of-c

I'm now officially a rockstar developer!

The best thing I’ve learned this week is that when squirrels fall/jump - they land like superheroes!

Oh look, new album day. 🥳

This one consists of various tracks and sounds I’ve made since the beginning of the pandemic that are more electronic/synth-based than rock or metal.

Asdf gör utvecklarpodd i adventskalenderformat, och resultatet är en perfekt lucka poddmys på morgonen: podcasts.apple.com/se/podcast/

(Swedish podcast Asdf are releasing a podcast advent calendar - one short episode per day - and the first episode is perfect.)

Subtooting about programming 

People who are otherwise technical: "regex is hard let's go shopping".

I saw yet another such discussion, containing various memes, all based on the same tired idea that somehow regexes are too hard to understand.

I don't know if I'll lose followers by saying this, but seriously. Regexes are not hard, and if you don't know how to use them you're going to find yourself writing hundreds of lines of code to do the most trivial extraction of information from strings.

Seriously, even in the most simple form, if you want to get the number from a string of the form "some-words-here-1234XYZ" with some simple rules on what the "words" may be, without regex the code is going to be absolutely unreadable, and you'r going to find yourself with edge cases where your custom parser will give the wrong result.

But no, a 10 character regex to do the same thing is too complicated.

what was your first social network?

This! The author of this really sums up my general feeling of the state of modern software (#development). We build a lot of shit. We build things that don't work well, is slow and bloated, and the worst part is that everyone just seems to accept it.

Something I miss in Mastodon is to be able to get a stream from a different instance than the one my account is at, and without having to go through the full Federated stream. Some instances are focused on specific interests that may be difficult to find from only individual follows.

How often do you look at the federated feed? Please boost so I can get more answers

twitter 

I have no interest in a Twitter replacement. Twitter was terrible long before EM. What I want is a way to connect with friends and people who share my interests, that isn’t owned by a corporation and isn’t actively trying to ruin my life for ”engagement”.

#OnThisDay (or thereabouts) 46 years ago, Emacs was named. It was previously called ?MACS.

I did a talk for Rust Bristol and Rust & Cpp Cardiff about the development of @veloren a few weeks ago. For anybody interested in Rust and gamedev, it might be interesting.
