Creating a Podcast From a Mastodon Account With XSLT

I recently discovered the ATPrewind account on Mastodon. It’s an account sharing “gems discovered while re-listening to @atpfm from the very first episode. By @joshua”.

divmod, Rust, x86, and Optimisation

While reviewing some Rust code that did something like this:
