I just saw a notice regarding a recall on a certain very modern vehicle to update faulty software that was introduced in the first recall. We can initiate a software fix on a spacecraft on the edge of the solar system, but getting an update for the truck requires a trip to the garage. OTOH, I'm not sure I'd like my vehicle to receive an update/fix without my consent...still, I could see it being initiated from an email/website/app at least.

I've been seeing that Sedgewick book for at least 20 years. I remember the old C++ edition and I've never been able to get far into it. I decided to try again and I read the long sample.

I want someone to begin at the beginning of Algorithmic Thinking and go on from there. That's what the first (Pragmatic) book did. This One
Well, I found another. It's longer than the Pragmatic one (goes into more depth, covers more topics) and is by a great author Rod Stephens:
No but i really should. A lot of what I learned was a trial by fire while making parsers and lexers (one of the reasons i like them is they use things like finite automata and push down automata and a lot of different styles of data structures)
The rest i've either picked up as i went or on the internet via various websites like geeks4geeks or the occasional video.
I have no idea who this man is, but he makes everything from complex data structure tutorials to advanced stuff like parsing and stuff beyond mere mortals like compiling tutorials.

PETA, in collaboration with Greta Thunberg's YSMC "You Stole My Childhood" group, has started a fundraiser for a rescue mission for penguins with heat prostration: geodesic shelters will be erected all along the coastal areas where penguins congregate; they will have special solar-powered high-frequency sound emitters tuned to the pitch known to repel walruses and seals, but, for male penguins, said pitch has been shown to function as an aphrodisiac.

The average for the continent is still well below what most people would consider comfortable (heck, bearable) without a winter jacket, boots and gloves. Inland, it's still one of the coldest places on Earth, where temperatures below -60C are not uncommon.
Is the east coast still accumulating snow and ice faster than the west coast is melting?
(I may have east/west reversed, but my point stands)
Not being a denier. Just observing they still have better snowmobiling weather than we do here near Ottawa.
