    Brian Norman

    LOL.
    How's day three going.
    You should livestream the pain.
    I'd watch.
    It sounds fun.
    Searching for the right function name etc.

    Trying to work out how to get it to split the grid into columns or anything that would allow me to sum each is proving a challenge
    Scarecrowe
    @Scarecrowe
    Certainly more challenging today :D

    Nice work Dan, I was so close to getting second place today, but Paul just beat me to completing part two. Was a good challenge.

    Oh ffs. Did we just play a ‘squid game’?

    Day 4 in the AOC house. Part 1 = 2 hours of OOP lovelyness... part 2 = 2 minutes (phew...)

    decided it was finally time to start writing code rather than using Excel, just spent 90 minutes getting my node based runner back up and running from last year 😥
    first modern JS I'd written since AoC2020, should be fun
    what are all these funny arrow things ?! ;)
    Iain M Norman
    @IainMNorman
    Day 4 caught up on.
    Andy Norman
    @andynormancx
    not sure my heart is in it this year, all feeling a little bit like work at the moment (doesn't help that I'm fighting this JS runner a bit)
    Scarecrowe
    @Scarecrowe
    Can you not write it as a html page and just run the JavaScript solution like that or in the dev console window
    Iain M Norman
    @IainMNorman
    Put the Buffy Once More with Feeling soundtrack on loud and everything will be okay.
    Scarecrowe
    @Scarecrowe
    Or write it in rockstar 🤣
    Andy Norman
    @andynormancx
    I can, but it is nicer when you have a runner and tests etc
    Iain M Norman
    @IainMNorman
    Man some of the rockstar solutions are amazing
    Andy Norman
    @andynormancx
    or at least it is when the runner is working how you want it to ;)
    Scarecrowe
    @Scarecrowe
    I have been looking at some solutions in rockstar
    I had a play on the website as they have a js transpiler for it
    Robert Giffin
    @RobGiffin
    I tried to visualise the output of todays challenge, but its not so easy to fix a 1000x1000 grid in a terminal window! Day 5 done. puzzles are getting more interesting.

    @RobGiffin take a look at https://spectreconsole.net/. Might help if you're trying to do cool stuff in the Console.
    Scarecrowe
    @Scarecrowe
    That does look rather cool, will have a play around with that

    The world has righted itself
    Got mine done within 20 minutes today and there was internal server errors all over the show. I submitted both answers yet the leader boards where showing no stars at all.
    phew

    Lee Wilkie
    @leewilkie
    Thank you @ajsummerfield. Yes, not long now!
    Andy
    @ajsummerfield
    Few days definitely caused some head scratch moments, but have rather enjoyed it tjis year and actually felt like I'm getting somewhere which is nice! Never good these kinda problem solving challenges, but so far so good :)

    @leewilkie
    My first time this year with AOC. Been fun (!) so far. Yesterday's challenge was a cheeky little thing wasn't it? I fell foul of the noob gotcha LOL!
    Andy
    @ajsummerfield
    I never get very far as they start to take too long to do!
    I fell for it as well dont worry, did think it was a bit easy and then WHAM, bit or googling and refactoring later I got there 😂
    Lee Wilkie
    @leewilkie
    Glad I'm not the only one!! Hoping this isn't some covert technical test for new devs haha!

    Yeh when the time increases or the q4 burn peaks I often have to stop.
