I can’t believe that so much time has gone by since I last updated my blog. It feels like the blink of an eye, but I can see that it was last updated in November 2022. In that time I feel like the world has changed. OpenAI launched ChatGPT at the end of November 2022. Nowadays, I can’t imagine coding or problem-solving without the help of an A.I. chatbot. It seems like just as significant a development as the advent of the internet or the mobile phone.

It’s been a while since I experimented with using SQLite from Swift (like a few years). I found it painful the last time I tried, but thought I’d revisit it again. To my delight, it turns out to be straightforward.
It’s another year! What a weird year 2020 was. Helen and I started the year in Australia. We travelled back to the UK at the end of February thinking that we would move back to Sydney in July/August. Instead we got stuck in the UK because of the pandemic.
This past week Helen and I have been playing “Limbo” and “Inside” by Playdead on the XBox. These are such good games! Both Limbo and Inside have tons of atmosphere. They are a moody, luscious side-scroller games. The puzzles are engaging, and you never feel like you are completely stuck. Ironically, we both thought that the hardest puzzle in “Inside” was the very first one in the farm, which you get to quite early on.
