- The Apprenticeship patterns book is very interesting! I shall
continue to read it and start create daily/weekly rituals from the
actions prescribed in the book!
- I was reading this post on
reflog, etc. and wanted to
see what the default values were for some of the configurable
variables. But, the git config command didn't help. Developer/code
defaults are also a part of the "config" system, and any tools to
inspect config variables should display them, if no other values

branches without specifying explicitly which branch I want to push.

repositories have proper dependency/version management. Seems to be
the problem, everywhere! Dependencies of a package get updated, and
the package starts acting up…
- Chaitu sent me a link about solving mazes using Finite Automata, and
I spent some time trying to write a simple solver, and compare it
with Nava's breadth first search. But, it looks like we broke her
code during the refactor. I may get back to this, at some point.
- I also spent a few minutes talking to Kyle, while he was trying to
implement a simple version of the NTP protocol. The algorithm it
turns out, is pretty simple.
- I started reading a little bit on crypt-analysis for Simple
Substitution ciphers, and I'll try implementing one of the
- The day ended with yummy pizza and video watching! We watched –
