I think it's enough knowledge of not to use it anymore.

Thank God, I spent only two days on it, to understand.
```
user=> (pop (list 3 2 1))
(2 1)
user=> (pop [3 2 1])
[3 2]
```

I am not convinced that compiler that gives you error messages like
```
class clojure.lang.PersistentVector$ChunkedSeq cannot be cast to class clojure.lang.IPersistentStack (clojure.lang.PersistentVector$ChunkedSeq and clojure.lang.IPersistentStack are in unnamed module of loader 'app')
```

Should exist in 2023.

I am not happy with rust, but at least, error messages in rust are notably better than this.

I'm going to participate in this one:

Go with me. Let's have fun.

That must be in one of "Wonders of the World " list.

Gave up on day 16 of aoc. Sadly.

Got tired of Rust.

With Rust compiler I felt like instead of an assistant, I got a brick on my neck.

It was a good hunt anyway.

I have been asking a few questions, and it often gives flawed answers.

For example, ask it to list the largest cities in the Midwest. When I did this, it omitted Detroit.

Then ask it for the population of Detroit. It answered that it is the largest city in the Midwest.

Had a typo that cost me a few hours to understand.

I haven't "left Twitter." I just don't want to keep using it while it's banning links to other sites. Plus given the way things are going, it seemed like a good time to learn more about Mastodon.

Dijkstra saved the day. Though I tried naive/bruteforce approach as well.

Gave up Rust as well.

I just completed "Hill Climbing Algorithm" - Day 12 - Advent of Code 2022 adventofcode.com/2022/day/12

Gave up Rust again.

First time I gave up rust and did it in go.

Rust and recursive structures (graphs) seem to be painful.
