Accomplishments log
# I use this to keep track of things I've done during the day. It's mostly a motivational tool.
# I find that the fear of a sparse log at the end of the day drives me to look for things I can
# accomplish in a short period of time.
# Creating an alias for the script is recommended.
# Usage:
# $ ./ refactored the robot-targeting code
# $ ./
# Fri Aug 27 | refactored the robot-targeting code

# After installing Ubuntu on a machine I run this script. It removes packages I don't use,
# improves the security situation slightly, and installs the minimal set of packages I need
# to do all my work.
# Usage:
# sudo chmod +x
# sudo ./

One of the worst pieces of code ever
""" I did not write this, though I fixed a syntax error in it. I just found it while looking for an easy way to plot a world choropleth map. It is probably the worst program I've ever seen and felt I should keep it for some reason. """
