Hemingway 0.7.1 is out, featuring way faster feed fetching thanks to using futures correctly! https://github.com/jahzielv/hemingway
So some mathematicians figured out nlogn multiplication: https://www.quantamagazine.org/mathematicians-discover-the-perfect-way-to-multiply-20190411/
Algorithms matter! https://accidentallyquadratic.tumblr.com/
also, #TIL 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! https://users.rust-lang.org/t/why-http-request-is-so-slow/42239
I'm going to dig into this thread and see if I can find some answers.
"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 (https://thoughts.jahz.co) setup.
I'm Jahziel, a computer science undergrad at Georgia Tech. I make computers go beep-boop.
This is a server created by Jahziel Villasana (aka hapax). He's not sure what he's going to use it for yet...
