A little over a year ago, originally due to an interest in the deeper history of , I started diving deep into the , studying , , and doing etc in what has become my deepest engagement with the rabbinic corpus yet -- the Talmud isn't a compiler but rather an extensible interpreter, compiled by compilers over the course of many centuries (build times have gotten significantly faster, my G-d), with novel extensions in the form of rabbinic commentary, glossia and the like being added nearly every century by publishers competing to compile the most elegant editions (Vilna Shaws being paradigmatic). And through studying Talmud and the greater body of rabbinic literature I've found myself encountering /sorcery occasionally, and I just gotta say -- the metaphor of programming as pure magic, with the as a sorcerer, goes insanely deep when you start to dig into it.

Mages have plenty of options for cheating their customers, although I suspect they might not get much in the way of repeated business if they use them.

Being outnumbered ten to one is generally considered fairly bad odds in warfare.

However, you can even the odds if you cheat.

Sometimes, when programming in #Rust, I'm wondering whether there is a little Ferris in my computer whispering to all those 0's and 1's to behave correctly. :ferris:

Otherwise I can't describe the following experience:

  1. Rewrite parts of #parsing a programming language from #nom to #chumsky (the parts that are most interleaved with each other => indirect recursion over multiple non-terminals!).
  2. Run all affected tests
  3. See all of them pass on the first try!

Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End (Best Original Anime)

📹 https://youtu.be/Iwr1aLEDpe4

If there is one Anime to watch in 2024, it is Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End on Crunchyroll.

There is a reason why Frieren is given a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes & the anime has received a 9 out of 10 on the International Movie Database (IMDB).

What makes this show unique is the fact it takes place at the end of a legendary adventure, as the female elf protagonist (the latter is a rarity in anime) reflects on her experiences & memories during the decade-long journey with her closest companions.

The show is about love, regret, memories, moving forward, hatred & consequences of decisions. What I enjoyed about this anime is how each character had different perspectives—even hypocritical ones—& despite their flaws, they accomplished great things.

Another item I enjoyed about Frieren is that it is not another overpowered protagonist's show. While Frieren is powerful, she is also vulnerable (mismatches are the key to victory), as the show highlights during the numerous fantasy battles.

Many other characters in the show are fantastic, too, but it is best to discover that for yourself!

Although the show appears episodic at first, there is a clear destination in mind, & it is fun to watch Frieren & her new friends attempt to trek there on her journey.
