Advent of Code 2019 Solutions (25 Part Series)
Oh hey! It's a problem related to my current job! Let's try to brute force some passwords like real l337 h4xx0rz.
Man, the forces of the Holidays have a consistent problem with security. Every year we have to do some basic offensive security work... Santa's forgotten password, most of the obstacles in our assault on Easter Bunny Corp., cracking High Entropy Passwords, sneaking past lazy guards, or some other bad practice.
Part 1 seems complicated at first, but looking at the whole possibility set might shake some things loose.
Part 2 was mainly difficult for me due to the wording. However, once I figured out that there needs to be at least one number that appears exactly twice, then it was all downhill pedaling.
I was beginning to worry that this was going to be a tougher year with a steep ramp-up!

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?
Languages Seen On Day 03
- Python x 3
- Clojure x 2
