Hooray! A reason to make cool gifs^TM.
In order to finish booting a Elvish Mars Rover, they sent us a picture of the password. Credit where credit is due, the elves managed to at least encrypt the image file, so they have some security sensibility at least. Unfortunately, we have to build our own decryptor.
Humblebrag: I was out partying all day (playing board games!), and I want people to have a place to post. I'll update with a snappy summary when I finish the problem (probably tomorrow).
Part 1 was a simple counting problem. The main hurdle seemed to be correctly chunking the input data into the proper layers.
Part 2 also seemed strangely straightforward compared to Day 07, but maybe the list comprehension sugar of my chosen language simplified more than I realized.
Phew! I'm catching back up to where I wanted to be faster than I expected.

If you were part of Ryan Palo's leaderboard last year, you're still a member of that!
If you want me to add your leaderboard code to this page, reply to one of these posts and/or send me a DM containing your code and any theming or notes you’d like me to add. (You can find your private leaderboard code on your "Private Leaderboard" page.)
I'll edit in any leaderboards that people want to post, along with any description for the kinds of people you want to have on it. (My leaderboard is being used as my office's leaderboard.) And if I get something wrong, please call me out or message me and I’ll fix it ASAP.
There's no limit to the number of leaderboards you can join, so there's no problem belonging to a "Beginner" and a language specific one if you want.
I'm planning on adding some statistics, but other than "what languages did we see yesterday" does anyone have any ideas?
