Example of how we can prob use resolvers in graphql-go so that you only need to be authenticated if you are asking for fields that require it.
package main

A program that is both a palindrome and a quine, made with hearts for Joe

A program that is a palindrome (if you reverse its source code, you get the same program) and is a quine (if you run it, it prints out its own source code). Verify like this:

ruby palindrome_quine.rb | tee output
diff palindrome_quine.rb output # the output is the same as the source program
ruby -e 'puts $' < palindrome_quine.rb > reversed
diff palindrome_quine.rb reversed # the reversed program is the same as the source program

Golang's type system failing me, tests passed the values, but prod passed pointers to them, the type system didn't care, but staging broke b/c of a type error.
package main
import (
type Objs []Obj
type Obj interface{ GetType() string }
type IntObj struct{ Int int }
type StrObj struct{ Str string }

1. dies (WRONG)
lvl1 Sauda tends to leak on like... r4 or something, and that's a bad position for her
2. dies (WRONG)
I don't think they'll be able to take the ceramics at the end
3. wins (RIGHT)
quincy is good under alchemy, the cannon is good cleanup

BTD6 v34.0 update notes

"New Boss Bloon: Dreadbloon!"

I guess I need to get into bosses, b/c they do make sense for me in CT, but outside of CT, god, they're so fkn tedious. I'm basically indifferent.

Team banners 9 and 10

Sweet, lets hold off and get one of these since none of the other teams will have them... unless they suck, in which case screw that.

Split slashes in paths, but not URLs
def split_path(path)
slash = Regexp.escape File::SEPARATOR
match = path.match(%r~ # regex that is delimited by tildes so I can use slashes, quotes, backticks, etc in the comments
( # capture whatever the path_slash group matches
(?<path_slash> # a named group that matches slashes in paths, but not urls, eg will not match ""
# don't match first slash in "://"
(?: # don't capture this group
(?<!:) # not preceeded by ":"
(?!#{slash}#{slash}) # not succeeded by "//" (we haven't matched the slash yet, so it's in front of the cursor)

Example of putting the semicolon at the beginning of the line in JS
// this line will "continue" the previous one so
// it gets a semicolon to stop it from doing that
// JS would otherwise consider it a function call,
// ie `console.log("hello")(function() { ... })
