It's my first year of #adventofcode. I decided to do it all in #lua and make visualizations for each day in #pico8. Here's Day 1!

2020: it’s easier to buy weed than toilet paper. 2021: it’s easier to buy weed than a bicycle. Looking forward to whatever shortages 2022 brings!

Advent of code 2021 idea? Maybe we can build a tool which only supports pasting and injects the source URL as code comments? #AdventOfCode
