Burned my fingers on a solenoid a lil bit

I was using it as test load for a load switch thingy, and I might have gotten lost in the debugger and left it on for a bit,,

Good thing it came in a small polyethylene bag with integrated thermal overload olfactory early warning.

Anyways, I wrote too much C code recently,,

Sure I'm holding it wrong, but I'm still in awe about how big of a foot gun the whole thing is. Everything takes so long to get it right.

It's hard to pick my favorite bug; it's getting harder to surprise me, but today I realized that Implicit Declaration of a function is just a lil warning, instead of a big red flag.

This is just one of the countless user hostile properties of C.

@uint8_t i read the last bit with your favourite bug and I fully anticipated an insect. 🐛

@uint8_t my favourite thing is how that in particular can turn a 60 line proof of concept into 6000.

@uint8_t Maybe that's why I get on so well with C - I arrived by way of assembly. =:)

@porsupah C is a weird assembler metaprogramming language
