Okay, the exact workflow is a bit more like this: the compiler yells at you, you fix your code, compile your stuff into a binary and it JUST RUNS! 🤯

Instead of the German tradition of “Bleigießen” where you melt lead, pour it into water and interpret the resulting lump of toxic metal, I had my pen plotter plot me something random. What do you think this is? And what does fortune have in store for me? #plottertwitter

Waiting to translate a talk that should have started fifteen minutes ago is worse than every telephone queue I’ve ever experienced. @firstname.lastname@example.org #rc3
Hooray, I found a snorkel!
Update: the solstice appears to have gone ahead as planned.

I plotted these snowflakes just for you, #plottertwitter!
They’re not quite true to how snowflakes grow in nature, but I was so happy with how they turned out that I decided I didn’t care. (They’re lines connecting pairs of random points in a circle segment, reflected 12 times.)
And the answer is: [0, 1, 10, 2, 20]
This is because Array.prototype.sort() compares elements as strings, no matter their actual type, which is a fantastic way to shoot yourself in the foot. Most of you were smarter than me and got it right!
Update: they fixed it! (A few days ago, in fact.)
Newsroom nerd, now in Norway. I get excited about transport, travel, languages, and design. @bockph on Twitter.
