So I will take those 40 stars, first time I've ever continued up to day 25. But then to only discover the 50th star is not available until you complete the missing 9! Hopefully will find some time to get those, but given I skipped them due to complexity on the day they were released, I'll probably be sat at 40 forever.

I had too much hardcoding originally, and it took a while to debug as a result. I don't win any tool golf solutions here, but it was much easier to work through the logic breaking it out in this way.

I got 35 stars, so I can't get star 2 in this question. If there is an available time for me, I might take remaining stars...

 Bummed I couldn't get part 2. I have 38 stars, and a jump from 29 last year. Glad I do these to stay sharp.

Will try to get as many stars as possible, though now sure if I will ever get all 50 to finish it though. Some are pretty tricky.

My macro didn't start out so ugly, but I kept having to fix bugs and making it more complex...
