Good luck :slight_smile:
FYI one of the features of Advent of Code is that we all get given different inputs so our answers will be different.
The examples are all the same but each of us gets different inputs for us to solve

Did Part 1 very industrially :slight_smile: I imagine it will catch me out when it comes to Part 2 :slight_smile:

Part 2 went quite smoothly - it'll be interesting to see how others have done it

Day 3

I honestly didn't do this one yet, because I don't have access to a computer, and my idea for a solution is a bit more complicated, so I have a feeling it would be difficult to debug on an ipad.
