The new backlink was a link made by Jeff Juliard in his Link Dumpin blog:

This guy has written a static tumblelog generator. I’m so interested in this. Maybe its a function of being old enough to remember the pre-GAFA internet, but the idea of a home-brewed, bespoke, microblog disconnected from the larger social bullshit factory really appeals to me. I’m not a coder by any stretch, but I can work within a simple framework that is well documented. I would very much like to find the time to dig into this.

Wow, thanks Jeff!

A Practical Guide to State Machines

In this article, we’ll examine some examples of real-world problems that can be expressed and solved using finite state machines. We’ll take the opportunity to explore some of the C#’s pattern matching capabilities an see how they come handy for implementing them. In the second part, we’ll see how to combine multiple state machines to form a cohesive workflow.
