@mickylindlar Thank you! Doesn't look too n00bish to me. Quite readable code, structured with functions, what else could one wish for?
@mickylindlar Didn't have time last night, but now finished as well. Yes, that was easier. I think that's mostly due to the rather complex input format on day 5, where I spent more time on parsing than on the actual data shuffling.
@mickylindlar There as well! I know what you mean about the kitchen ... 😂 Took me some time to roll out a proper parser for the input format.
@mickylindlar Oh, please don't bother putting them online just for me! Would have taken a look if they'd been online anyway, but that's not necessary. 😉 I'm done with day 4 as well but did not find it particularly easier than the first 3. So that speaks for point (b) in your case, I would say. 😉
@mickylindlar ☕!! But no, I'll go with (e). 😉 Gonna have a look myself in the evening again. Are your solutions online somewhere? Curious to see a Python version, but too lazy to make one myself. Even some of the other Haskell implementations I looked at were very different from my own, so it seems there is a considerable design space to be explored.
@mickylindlar Absolutely! That is, as long as they don't eat up too much time because of "ooh, I could try yet another variant to solve the problem a little more elegantly!". 😉 You?
@mickylindlar Sounds good. I think I'll try to find some time tonight as well. But probably use Haskell. 😀
Back in RSS!?
@r2gf I like Aggregator on Android. It's simple, unobtrusive, just works without any ads or subscriptions.
DPC's Paul Wheatley on restrictive #FileFormat policies in #DigitalPreservation (I totally agree with him):
"We [...] almost certainly don’t have the resource to pre-emptively migrate in a dependable, well documented, accurate and verified manner. If we (the preservers) don’t have the resource, how can we expect the depositors to be able to afford it, never mind do a quality job, given that they will likely have little digipres expertise or tech?"
You know how the Eiffel Tower won the Grand Prize at the 1889 World Fair? Well, it had to share the glory with a book.
Not any book: A book ENTIRELY WOVEN IN SILK.
You heard right. And nerds, get this: All pages of this book were produced on the Jacquard loom in 1889, using thousands (200k-500k) of punch cards. Only 50-60 copies were made. >
