This Post is part of the Blog Chain: Write An App (2023) Blog-Chain.
Late last night I:
- Installed the WSL extension and Remote Development extension for VScode
- via https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/tutorials/wsl-vscode
- Set up a project directory in my Ubuntu WSL environment
- Tested running Nushell in VSCode's terminal
- Tried fixing VSCode's Rust Analyzer extension (so I can debug code in VSCode running on Windows but connecting to WSL) using work-around shown here. But what ended up working is (per this stack overflow answer) setting up a Rust project (thus creating a Carmo.toml file) and installing CodeLLM debugger (?!). I cant explain why the latter was needed as well, but at least the debugger works now.
- Auto generated a launc.json configuration file as required for running without debugging. (?)
I feel like I should figure out why those things I did ended up fixing the issue, but the debugger runs now, and I've run out of time to work on the issue.
Because of my limited time today for this project, I think I'll save creating and committing to a GitHub repo for tomorrow. I've already done these steps before for other projects, so don't anticipate it taking too much time or being too much trouble. 🤞
re: Hiking / Bouldering
Today I summited Mount Si in North Bend, Washington via the "new" Mount Si Trail:
- 7.9 miles
- 3,395 feet elevation gain / 4,300 feet MSL
- Approximately 2500 calories burned
There is a nice bouldering rock-scramble to get up to the peak via what's referred to as "The Haystack".
On the way up my first pitch, a Mountain Goat looked down at me somewhat defiantly, so I waited for him to decide what he wanted to do. I don't know if Mountain Goats are known to be aggressive or not, but given my precarious ledge, I thought it best to give him right-of-way.
Summiting a peak > 3500 feet was on my list of goals for the year ("Hierarchy of Fulfillment", so its nice to have made progress on one (Coding), and knocked another one off.
