100 Days of Code: Day 53
100 Days of Code, Round 1
Goals For Today:
The Dishwasher Is Finally Fixed!
Before I get started on my coding for the day, I’d just like to formally announce that for the first time in 5 YEARS, we finally have a working dishwasher! I mean, I hope it’s working. We haven’t actually tested it yet.
Uh oh… I hope I didn’t just jinx us…
Ever since we moved into this house, we’ve used our dishwasher maybe 3 or 4 times. It was broken when we moved in and we did not want to spend the money to fix it. When I say broken, I mean the soap dispenser was broken, so it was a very easy fix. We just were stupid and didn’t do it for five years, complaining every time we washed the dishes that we were piling them up into a dishwasher to dry.
In my defense, I priced the soap dispenser on Amazon years ago and it was $70. We only planned to be here for a few years at that point, so it seemed silly to spend money on something that we couldn’t (or wouldn’t) take with us. But after finally getting fed up with hand-washing the dishes every single day, I checked Amazon again and found that the price had dropped to around $35. Woohoo!
I placed the order and it came in the mail 3 or 4 days later. We finally had a few minutes this morning to replace it and I’m surprised by how simple it was. I can’t wait to have a full load of dishes in there so we can finally test it out. I just hope it works or I may have a lot of broken dishes.
Kidding. Sort of.
Now if only we could replace our stinky washer that doesn’t drain properly. 🙄
Ok, now that that’s out of the way, I can tell you about the progress that I made today coding. I wasn’t able to do a whole lot, to be honest, but I did work on the algorithms for around 2 hours and I now have more complete algorithms than incomplete (one more to be exact). That means I’m over 50% through with this section and that much closer to moving on to the ES6 and the projects.
Tomorrow morning I’ll have a bit more time to work on the challenges. I plan to code for 3-4 hours, as long as nothing else comes up.
