This year with even more overkill!

I can now control my central heating via local wifi with the -based 2019 conference badge.

I used to have a plain esp32 dev board, but wanted to diagnose connectivity problems via the eink display.

"In the past few years, however, people with the goal of developing AI have concluded that automatic backtracking as in PLANNER, has definite disadvantages, and that it will probably not lead to their goal; therefore they have backed off from it, preferring to try other routes to AI" (geb, 1979)

With that you can quickly navigate to the commit that made the change you're interested in, 'skipping over' other changes to the same code.
