I feel guilty when I write C in Code instead of Vim, but it's just so much nicer... Maybe I don't have the right plugins installed 🤔

Coronavirus 

Perhaps what's most infuriating about coronavirus is that there's room for _opinions_
My idealist mind hates the idea that something as rooted in science and observable data should be subject to people's _opinions_.

HAHAHAHAH I BEAT THE BORROW CHECKER TAKE THAT RUSTC

PSA to people learning Rust: you can return stuff from `match` statements!!!

Sentence structure is the key to good, interesting writing.

also, about `/usr/bin/time`, which times commands! It reports back the real time elapsed for the command to complete, as well as the percentage of time spent in kernel and userland.

Hemingway is coming along nicely, but it's... slow. According to `/usr/bin/time`, it's taking around 8-10 seconds to make 13 http requests and do a little data processing. I have a feeling my lack of Rust knowledge is leading to some inefficiencies! users.rust-lang.org/t/why-http
I'm going to dig into this thread and see if I can find some answers.

I love the Magic Trackpad's usefulness (gestures and such), but it absolutely wrECKED my wrist. I might get a wrist rest for it, but for now I've switched back to my trusty trackball. Not as functional, but vastly more comfortable!!

Nothing like reading all your Slack messages and getting rid of that little red badge 🤪

"Write clearly — don't be too clever"
Brian Kernighan's first rule of programming style. I've tried to approach programming this way for a while; staying away from ternary operators for example (unless writing React code), or making sure that even one line loops and ifs have braces. I'm grateful for languages like Rust and Go where this rule is pretty well baked into the language.

Finally set up my personal account on here! I'm still not sure what I'm going to use this instance for... it may end up being my bigger-better-shinier thoughts (thoughts.jahz.co) setup.
