## Problem mostly solved

I've come up with a solution to my problem which requires about 10% of the code that I was using. I haven't actually got the new code to work yet but this is an enormous breakthrough. There is another big problem on the horizon but it will be about 3 months before I get around to working on it. I know I've said this sort of thing...

## !.!.!.!I AM NOW DOWN TO 16,000 POSSIBILITIES!.!.!.!

IT'S BEEN A HELL OF A ROLLERCOASTER RIDE BECAUSE IF I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO REDUCE THESE POSSIBILITIES I AM FINISHED!!! I AM NOW DOWN TO 16,000 POSSIBILITIES!!! BUT I AM QUITE CONFIDENT THAT I CAN GET THAT NUMBER REDUCED TO 2!!!

## !#!REDUCE 16 BILLION POSSIBILITIES TO 20!#!

IT IS CRUNCH TIME!!! I'VE GOT THE MOST IMPORTANT LOOP OF MY LIFE THAT I REFERRED TO EARLY UP AND RUNNING AND IT NOW WORKS FOR 7 CASES BUT I'VE ONLY WORKED WITH 20 OR 30 POSSIBILITIES TIL NOW!! THAT IS TO SAY I HAVE TWO SETS OF VARIABLES: INSTANTIABLE AND UNINSTANTIABLE AND I NEED TO MATCH THESE TWO SETS OF...

## !EXCITEMENT!

I AM NOW GETTING READY TO CODE FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT LOOP OF MY LIFE!!! THIS IS THE MOST CRITICAL PART OF THE CODE AND REALLY THE ONLY HARD PART!!! THE REST IS EASY!!! I'VE TORE UP AND REWRITTEN THIS CODE 5 TIMES NOW AND EACH TIME I GET BETTER AT WRITING IT!!! THE LAST TIME I WROTE THIS PART OF...

## Coding Again

Ok, I can now code for about 4 hours per day now. It's not the 12 hours per day that I want but it will do. Hopefully in about 3 or 4 weeks I'll be able to code for 12 hours per day. Also, let me just preempt the obvious question: if you like coding so much why don't you just give up philosophy and become a coder? Also, in my last...

## !COUNTDOWN TO FREEDOM!

IT IS UNBELIEVABLE HOW ANGRY I AM THAT I CANNOT CODE AS MUCH AS I WANT!!! BEING A GRAD STUDENT OF PHILOSOPHY I HAVE TO WRITE PAPERS AND ALL THAT BUT IN ABOUT 10 DAYS I'M GOING TO BE ABLE TO DEVOTE A LOT OF MY TIME TO CODING AND MAN!!! HOW EAGER I AM TO GET BACK TO DOING WHAT I LOVE: CODING!!! I STILL HAVE TO...

## Inside my coding addiction, part one

Steve Wozniak makes it quite clear in his autobio that coding is addictive. This is especially true when I began testing my code roughly every hour. When you see that perfect test come back it really gives you a rush. I was coding about 50 to 60 hours during the summer but now I have to do other stupid shit so I can only code about 3 or 4 hours...

## 33 minutes, 19 lines, 23% more speed!

I know these posts where the coder brags about how much they sped up their code are pretty boring but this is one case where I just can't resist. I have a code of about 6000 lines, I spent 36 minutes planning how to write the code, and then 33 minutes actually writing 19 lines of new code. Without one bug, I managed to speed the code up from...

## Three sentences

Sometimes I get upset because my code is so brilliant but it will probably be about 3 years before anyone reads it and is able to pat me on the back for it. On the other hand, back when I was writing horrible spaghetti code, I thought it was brilliant then too. So maybe it's not all that brilliant.
