Hi guys, my name is Vortexagon!
My hobbies include:
- Programming in Rust. It has such a clean, concise, beautiful syntax and a modern ecosystem.
- Solving the Rubik’s Cube and other twisty puzzles. I’ve solved the 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, Megaminx, Skewb, Square-1, and others. Then, I explored blindfolded solving, which you could say was my first forage into memory techniques, memorising strings of characters using a version of the memory palace.
- Note-taking: I’ve tried many apps, such as Notion and Obsidian, and currently am sticking with the latter due to its sweet linking features.
I became interested in learning as many digits of Pi as I could a couple weeks ago, and I’ve spent small amounts of time learning chunks of digits through basic rote memorisation. I’ve reached 210 digits, and through this, I discovered that this forum exists.
I’ve spent this evening learning the Major System, and I’ve applied it to phone numbers. The results are pretty exciting!
I look forward to discussing cool ideas, techniques and my journey with you all.
