Greetings from Fort Livingroom. I am now 35 days into my terminal leave (well 20 days PTDY and 15 days leave). I have decided to forego the “Freedom Beard” for right now (my wife threatened me with divorce) but my hair is rapidly approaching hippy level.
So since this whole COVID-19 thing started, I’ve had a lot of free time on my hands. Yes, I’ve suddenly become a teacher (I’m taking care of my oldest, while Liz takes care of our youngest) but I am only working at the office one week out of every three. That gives me a lot of time. I decided among other things to work on my Python (a lot). So I went back to the 2015 Advent of Code and just started going away. So here are the first five days of the 2015 Advent of Code.
Yesterday I did something that has been nearly 21 years in the making; I finished my last working day in the Army. While I still have 2 weeks of out processing to complete, my time has come to an end. I will be the first to admit that this is a day I never thought I would see.
I’ve always found encryption interesting. While I’m not a mathematician I understand the basics generally. That statement mostly holds true when it comes to a symmetric encryption, but not so much when we start talking about asymmetric encryption.
So since we’ve had a little bit of free time lately, I’ve been doing some python scripting. The other day I decided to go back to Advent of Code and work on it a little bit more.
So after receiving a lot of great feedback from people from the first version of the transition calculator, I decided to improve and rework parts of it. You can find the new version here.
Day 3 (only 62 days late) of Advent of Code was a huge pain in the ass but a lot of fun.
I am now 120 days away from starting my permissive TDY as I leave the Army after nearly 21 years. Part of that process is figuring out how much money I need to make.
Day 2 (only 13 days late) of Advent of Code was a throw-back to the Apollo moon landing…..Spoiler Inside.
Well I’m only 13 days late, but better late than never. I had some time to kill tonight and decided to finally jump on this year’s advent of code. Each day consists of 2 problems that you solve. So here goes Day 1…..Spoilers Inside
