I reversed a QR code in Conway's Game of Life, resulting in a state that forms into the QR code after 2 generations. The QR actually works!

Made a flower arrangement. Not sure if I should switch the green ribbon by a pink one.

Anyone have any experience with chattering Mathias Quiet switches? I'm going crazy because of the double inputs.

I just found out that Conway's Game of Life is not only turing complete, but there was already a concrete implementation of a turing machine in 1999! This is insane.

Is there a better feeling than a boss allowing you to work on a hobby-project during work hours?

Does anyone have any opinions on what manual coffee grinder I should buy?
Looking for something robust, with configurable granularity while still being relatively cheap (<€50).

I implemented an algorithm for a 2D stock cutting problem. Glad I was finally able to finish a project.

DuckDuckGo added my suggestion for a PyQt5 bang! Looking up the docs is something I need to do often, and it has never been easier. Makes me feel like I contributed to something.
