In related news, C is hard.
Or perhaps just slow, when you are rusty.
I haven't written any C in earnest since 1993, that is until the last two weeks. It's all "familiar", and in particular the parts that set it apart from more popular languages in my circles these days, but there are plenty of "workaday" details that have completely faded from my muscle memory and I've had to do some serious relearning, which slows me down.
I'm relishing the opportunity to have an honest-to-dog justification to dive into this stuff again, but the pace is trying my patience a bit.
