“Now, it sounds like Twitter is making a Mastodon clone. My reaction is really mixed. I’m not happy that the announcement omitted the monumental work that’s been done in this space by Mastodon developers.” - Eugen Rochko
This year's #adventofcode is a little disappointing. With the day 9 challenge it's already the 4th Intcode Processor related challenge.
For me personally it's not that much fun to extend again and again on the existing Intcode processor and most of all it becomes quite repetitive...
Rewrote my #adventofcode day 6 challenge in #rust from building an object tree with Rc + RefCell to a much simpler version that only uses a string to string mapping for the tree traversal.
Also threw in FNV as HashMap hasher for an extra speed bump. The difference is huge.
Part 1 is 61% faster (598 μs down to 233 μs).
Part 2 is 97% faster (40 ms down to 1 ms).
Everything worked in the end, but sharing mutable references in rust is quite a messy thing. Now my type definition looks like
And my code is full of
I wonder if there is a cleaner way 🤔...

Wasn't one of the goals for #niantic's games that people go outside and meet others while playing instead of staying home?
Well, doesn't work. They just stand in the way and talk to no one.
Nice, Tokio 0.2.0. Gonna play around with #rust async/await soon.

@Tusky really awesome Android app - simple and intuitive. And I love the design.
What would be great is an option to auto-scroll-up on refreshing a tab though. I know I can scroll to the top by clicking the tab after refreshing but it's an annoying extra "click".
