Covid-lockdown #2 has given me the time and motivation to get SokoSolve into a stable place; enough to write-up the project and possibility make a explanitory video.

What an intoxicating time to be a geek. There is a cornucopia of new ideas and toys to play with. The time for indulgent learning – learning just for the sake of it – is at hand. Rejoice.
This is not sponsored. Its just stuff I like and I am a geek. :-)
Doing coding challenges has above all been fun, and long the way I have learned a lot and expanded my programming/languages horizon.
It seems like a good time to conduct a census of performance topics in .NET for the new decade.
The books that I am reading and occasionally a mini-review or rating. C#, Perf, dotnet.
Turns out, unsurprisingly, that covid lockdown is a good time to read a lot.

What an incredible career! I can safely say that no other person has had as big an impact on my technical life.
Turbo Pascal, Delphi, C#, TypeScript. Any other mortal would be content with just ONE of these globally influential languages.
I am proud of my career, but these individuals are complete HEROs. This is a deeply person list, and this exercise is my way of saying thank-you by trying to formalise their impact on my life over the years.

My gateway drug was a BBC Micro Model B, a ZX Spectrum and a nameless CPM ten-tonne monster. So as young kid, without knowing what a computer really was, I taught myself. It grew into a life-long passion and has provided me with an education and career. As I grew-up, so did the computer industry; information-technology went from the periphery of society to the pervasive center of modern life.
Computer languages designed to mess with your head.
The maximum allocatable size of a .NET process depends on the following factors: CPU, OS, 32/64 EXE header, GC
