They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

1 I've been doing r/roguelikedev's summer tutorial as an excuse to learn Rust. Getting my head wrapped around borrowing and ownership has been more annoying than I anticipated.

2 I only spent a couple of hours reading the docs, but it did not look simple.  Necessary, maybe, but not simple.

3 ESR spent some time looking at it and decided to start writing code in Go instead.

4 I do a lot of Go work in my day job, and I'm fond of it.
Rust is apparently close to putting an improved borrow-checker into the stable release, which does control flow analysis to permit some obviously safe code that the current stable lexical analysis forbids, such as:
let mut scores = vec![1, 2, 3]; let score = &scores[0]; scores.push(4); // error now, not laterSo that'll be nice. I spent an hour or two last week wrangling with the borrow checker over something similar.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
