Blows my mind when a 25MB WASM binary can be reduced to a 53kB binary after stripped of debug support and unused code.

Feeling sore from last night's kettle bells. I think it's the "You're doing it right" kind of sore.

More success today! Fixed an integer overflow bug.

Periodic reminder that taking a break from a hard mental problem can do wonders for solving it.

When you're analyzing legacy code, try excising "lazy developer" from your vocabulary and see if you can find the true root causes. (Hint: Search for other systems that are offloading their own work onto the devs.)

As long as those root causes remain unaddressed, after all, then even the most studious of future developers may look as "lazy" as their predecessors.

Staring mournfully at this `master` branch in a git repo that is over 10,000 commits behind the `development` branch.

I don't know whether I hate old, crusty code or hate know knowing that encountering such code means I'll have to deal with the kind of procedural and organizational dysfunction that allowed such code to exist in the first place.

(I can *fix* crusty code. Crusty organizations are another matter.)

I'm filing more expenses! Cheer me on. (This is an unusually [internally] daunting task for me.)

Currently staring soullessly at an ActiveRecord table with over 50 has_x relationships.

One guess as to the name of the table.

"Docker images are downloading" is a newer "Code's compiling" excuse for taking a break from work.

Enjoyed but bowing out now that I've been recruited for another project at work. Good luck, y'all!

Completed day 5, part 1 of !

Don't you love that feeling of being pleasantly surprised that you were about to overthink a problem only to realize you had already finished it?

Completed day 4 of yesterday. Starting on day 5 this morning.

Forgot to mention that I completed day 2 of earlier this week!

Still working on part 2 of day 3.

Which biases are encoded into your machine learning (ML) project?

It's not a question of "if."
