Working through with Apple Shortcuts app!

It's supposed to be used for getting some simple repetitive tasks automated by giving some control on Siri and your iOS device, but given that it has a few simple programming language features, I thought it may be fun to try and do some AoC puzzles with it :D

Its "library" of functions in terms of text/data manipulation is rather limited compared to popular languages, so I'm mostly relying on regex to get the job done, and it does work! That said, this thing is extremely hard to debug -- I can't dump print statements everywhere and "comment" them out to remove some temporarily. Plus, it takes literally forever to run when I give it real puzzle inputs.

@babelcarp Actually for many products they will continue to bother you. If you look for new shoes you will be bombarded with shoe adverts. However once you buy shoes you will still get shoe adverts as the shop doesn't tell anyone that you bought shoes ... to protect your privacy. (You will even get adverts from the same shop for the very same model.)

How do IRC people react to an IP address logger?

Read the log on my (stupid) IRC experiment ;-)

Eigentlich hätte ich jetzt sowas wie "Farbe ist keine Infrastruktur" geschrieben, möchte es aber beim Kommentar des Filmemachers belassen ;)
"it's a little subtle, but i think it invites the viewer to reflect on whether there is in fact a bike lane depicted in the video"
