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 "Treetop Tree House" - Day 8 - Advent of Code 2022

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

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

I am doing advent of code in

And I am pretty confident that my code is clumsy and can be improved significantly.

If any of you would like to point out anything about my mistakes/style/whatever, I would be grateful.

I'd like to build a heatmap of places I visited during the last two month.

I have Google location history json file, but the only site I can google out is broken.

Any advice?
