Day 2 is in the books! And surprisingly, we're into pseudo-interpreter territory already!
We need to slingshot ourselves around the moon, but the computer that calculates our trajectory has sadly exploded. Given our current data and the specs for that machine, we need to build ourselves a new IntCode interpreter.
It's surprising to me to see a psuedo-assembly converter so early in the Advent of Code, but this one turned out to be vaguely straightforward. Most of my personal problems stemmed from input validation. (If you're a newbie, let me assure you that input validation is almost always something that will slow you down. This goes triply for anyone learning a new language!)
Part 2 luckily doesn't require a whole lot of extra logic, but it has a bit of "optimization" and "compartmentalization" to keep tabs on.

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?
