2018 was of great use to me. Joined SDF, started hosting my JS-free blog on it. Read about 3/4 of GEB, started some sort of academic research on AI... and now I'm finally going on with nand2tetris (and hopefully returning to SICP as soon as I finish GEB). All of that not counting IRL of course.
Let's hope 2019 is just as joyful and productive 👌
I might be a little too puritane, but what is the actual point in asking someone to solve your programming college assignment, specially in a computing-related course? You won't understand shit about the other person's code, you won't understand shit about how to write it, and you'll get no fucking new knowledge at all. Holy hell, why can't certain people get that the only way into mastering programming is by practicing?

Node.js stuff running on console is such an abomination in the face of god, holy shit.
Cool news from my Phlog and my Blog:
1. Removed all extra JS from exported posts (org-export) and added syntax highlighting to my SDF page. Next: port the index to Org.
2. New (kind of) post on my phlog: Reflections on a modern Lisp Machine. An old blog post, now in plain text for all its ASCII glory.
3. New blog post in Portuguese, talking about operator associativity in C/C++, to help some friends.
It's like, you kind of feel the urge to raise a finger and start explaining, but you're not sure where to begin, and then you realize the best course of action is to just shut the hell up and let them think whatever they want.
Funny thing is, I was writing a C program at the same time I was listening to that.
