Playing around with algorithms that "are in no particular hurry to succeed" (https://www.mipmip.org/tidbits/pasa.pdf) and came up with what I'm calling Oust Sort
BogoSort uses randomness and isn't guaranteed to ever finish
Worstsort isn't an in-place sort, so it uses exponential (?) amounts of memory to execute
Slowsort is fun, but the highly recursive style makes it hard to explain (and also tends to cause stack overflows)
Oustsort is slower than Slowsort, is in-place and uses two simple nested loops
Cities: Skylines has become an obsession of mine recently
Here are maps of my city, Shawbury, generated with this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=845665815
Having fun picking names for districts and metro stations, trying to reflect the history of the city as it grows

A lot of my birdsite followers are novice gamedevs, so I like to post little code tricks.
Today I posted the snippet below, and this guy I know decided to barge in and tell me it'd probably be quicker if I used the new "Set" object, someone else jumps in and confirms.
1. This is a three-line utility function, who cares about performance
2. They haven't tested the performance, they're just flexing their big code brain
For those of you who like to code in well-lit rooms full of plants, with hot chocolate, a sleepy cat and a warm jumper, the soft-era colour scheme might be for you

Patoune is in a cuddly mood tonight
About to try out this demo/exercise on my students
I built https://cute-sorts.glitch.me/ so my students can try out sorting algorithms!
