@mdhughes yeah I found a bug from a few years ago about the queue dying. But it it's 24 hours, I've still got a couple hours to go.

The Mediocre Programmer

This book is about helping you along on the journey of being a mediocre programmer. Together we'll uncover some of common misconceptions we have about programming, failure, and growth and come to understand that the act of programming and development is something we undertake each day and improve in small ways. It's these small changes that over time transform us from being mediocre programmers into better programmers.
