I did a little more work on Cryptopals, and thought about the functional spec. I think a lot of the stuff I'm trying to work on right now requires reading explanatory materials while I'm all the way awake, which is kind of hard to do this close to the solstice.
I think I'll pivot thus:
- Mostly write up ideas for my future self to draw or write.
- Put together a reading list for when I'm more conscious; I'll see how I feel in the first weekend in January.
- To the extent that I'm working on functional specs, switch to iterating on Vislav Peterson and the Island of Gold, because that's a much less demanding spec in terms of depth.
