For my RUSH02 I did get try another one from “42s Classics” list which is “0 for the group project for the Norm error”.
Normally the corrector has all the rights to stop the correction at the moment he found the first error, and when it’s the Norm error he doesn’t even need to check if the program works. I had a feedback from my peers/colleagues who were in this situation previously and they were very frustrated not to have any feedback on the core program because of the norm mistakes. For our part we were lucky with the person who was correcting us, he was really cool and checked our code even after he found 10 norm mistakes… It turned out that even if it wasn’t for the Norm we still would have 0, as we didn’t manage the malloc protection (memory allocation) for some specific cases. So even if it’s 0, it wasn’t a frustrating zero as it’s often the case at 42. So thank you @Gilles!
As for the rest, I did move forward with D10 which is all about Makefile and function pointers. Hopefully, I will finish it tomorrow and will move on with the D11. And for now, the bottom line is.

1.AGE DIFFERENCE HAS ITS OWN MATH. I’ve been going on with the interviews today and I have been once more taken aback by the maturity and the depth of the feedback my Piscine colleagues gave. I had two 19-year old interviewees today and I unless I knew the age in advance I wouldn’t believe it was the real number. And so I did realise once again that the age difference has its own math that is not + and -, but * and  /  and the arguments that matter in this calculation are the experiences that one got on the road of life. And the tougher the path is, the more daring the choices are the more mature and interesting the person becomes.
And here goes once again me failing to keep my own objectives to finish the interviews today. But this time it’s for a good reason – there are just too many interesting people not to continue! And there are also lots things worth being heard from the mouth of those who lived the experience. And the ears that should hear those are both the future swimmers, our touch coaches (the staff) and even those who has already finished the Piscine. I will try to do it asap. And I also will try to put longer sequences and add one interview to each post I did before because it really worth hearing it in full and the final film will only be 5 min long.
