Recursion for sure. This one came out better.
I can attach a 2 MB photo to a toot, but not a 200 kB ebook
am i the only person who actually likes GTK+
b/c i really like GTK+, and the GNOME apps, and the GTK3+ aesthetic
every time I see a potentially cool apache foundation project cross my radar i get excited right up until I see the first jar file.
holy shit this article https://marcan.st/2017/12/debugging-an-evil-go-runtime-bug/
Tommy Wiseau doesn't even reach the level of puerile of a teenage boy. He writes like a fucking eight year old imagining what adulthood would be like, and it's chilling

Boost if you agree.
lazyweb: what's your preferred mail server setup docs on Unixoids for someone who's good at admin stuff (and thus doesn't need automagic things, esp if they clobber existing setups) but has no clue how mail works? an org's server needs mail (esp down the road for automated application mails) and I'm not paying for Office 365/Google Apps.
i think i like old (~mid-late 90s) 3D games because of nostalgia, but also because:
- limited polycount made them focus only on whats needed to sell the scene; locations often have a kinda relaxing simplicity to them, there's no extra details to think or worry about
- realism was impossible, so they used other artistic techniques to create immersion, like 'theatrical' area lighting design, vibrant/deep colors to indicate the time of day & unrealistic/drawn textures rather than photographic ones

PROTIP: Mixing your metaphors is a boon. By switching from creating a new list iteration, I go down for well over 30 minutes to just about a second. Still using recursion!

Recursion based approach with immutable lists, not arrays.
30 damn minutes to run part 2 with 28M iterations, and a more "reasonable" ~375K on part 1. Printing to console makes it worse; thankfully I had VS to break into debugging instantly to pause; IMHO the killer feature of F# over other functional languages.
Now I'd like to see a comparison of F# vs. OCaml/SML and immutable lists vs. mutating arrays.
on part 2 and 14M iterations in - others said to expect ~25M
