The thing about Ascendance of a Bookworm is if you're the sort of person that cares as much about worldbuilding details like what the characters all wear all the time and the economies of the duchy and villages... it's very good. And when anime reviewers were like, "Ok but they just talked about business" I'm like YES THAT IS GOOD.
Woot! Just completed the first set of challenges from #cryptopals 😁
Just completed cryptopals set 1 challenge 4: detect single-character XOR in #ziglang. :D
Just solved "Search in Rotated Sorted Array" on Leetcode: https://leetcode.com/problems/search-in-rotated-sorted-array/submissions/
It was interesting to solve it in `O(log n)` time, as I had to use a binary search to find the pivot, instead a specific value. I love problems that take an old tool and use it in a new way.

Silly but fun demo of self-hosted Zig progress:
It compiles a zig source file with 1,000,000 calls to print("hello world") in 0.67 seconds using 471 MiB resident memory. This is 8x as fast as clang on equivalent C code and 3x less memory.

@sir It's a couple of craftsmanships (design, implementation, probably something else). So you can make science of it (e.g. what goes fast for what kind of problem etc.), you can use it to create art (just like painting a craft, but the way you do it makes it art) so it may be subject to both, one, or none. But I'd not say it *is* one or the other.
