Been a while


I have returned to the Rust programming language. I left off before Advent of Code, so I decided to get  a quick refresher. I watched Rust Crash Course | Rustlang, a youtube video by Traversy Media. As the guy admits it is a relatively short  intro at almost 2 hours but I think it got me back to where I can continue with the Rust Tutorial that comes with the language.

Related to programming is SQL.  A while back someone posted a link on HackerNews to The SQL Murder Mystery. If you know SQL or are learning it, this is a fun little puzzle.

I have been struggling with trying to figure out how to run a new water line through from the basement into my bathroom for the toilet. I did not want to rip a big hole in the wall so I made a small one. The small hole made it difficult to manipulate the pipe. I did come up with a way to hold the pipe vertically by placing a rubber band around it which made it wide enough not to fall back down. I have since set up the pipe and created a cover for the hole.  I installed a cut off valve and I think it is ready for hook up to the line, but that will have to wait until I get a new toilet which should be shortly.
