Day 3 - getting trickier, needed more thought
I definitely am finding myself suffering from flashbacks and asking myself "How can I build this so that it is flexible enough that I can still be using it 12 challenges later?"...
Also, per usual, was fairly pleased with my solution until I saw @jdunkerley79 10-tool variation. Sigh.
@NicoleJohnson this one absolutely had the feeling that this won't be the last we see of the toboggan!
You're still top of the table 🙂
Anyone else who wants to join the league (we currently have about 32 active players) the code is 453066-ca912f80
And ... I went for the macros on day 3.
Day 3 reminds me of this
@Jean-Balteryx how is the runtime with the batch and iterative macro? I think it was 2018 were we discovered switching from macros to generating lots of rows the run time is really fast.
@cgoodman3 10 seconds, I think your solution is faster !
It's because there were challenges in 2018 that would take 1 hour+ to run using iterations and batch macros, but using things like generate rows gets the run time down into the minutes ballpark.
I made macro, too. But my approach is putting the part 1 workflow into macro.
