still proud of this #ocaml #crossStitch, but every time I visit it my desire to frame it properly grows

TFW CNY is incoming and I completely forgot to buy food to shelter myself when the world will stop moving for one week

My former research group in Cambridge put a very nice tool online, Cerberus, with a web interface. "Cerberus is a tool for exploring the semantics of the C programming language". So whomever must program C may want to use and discover C semantics and undefined behaviour - find it at cerberus.cl.cam.ac.uk/

No hints about the fact that it went through the translation is my favorite part though: granted it is somewhat obvious most of the time.
But when it will not be obvious, nothing quite like letting big corporations rewrite words for you, for the sake of being “practical”.
Seriously, just fuck off, Google, Facebook friends.
Fuck the hell off.

You gotta love this feature where YouTube (or even before, Facebook is also doing that a lot), just translate whatever the hell they want because they feel like it. Like “Hey let me translate this video title and description to English because I’m pretty sure you don’t understand this language”, “also I’m not giving you any hint this went through automated translation ;;;)”

I believe this is an example of what is known as 'Crown shyness', where the canopies of several trees appear to leave a gap between each other.

This was spotted at the car park of Pasir Ris Park, Singapore, on 1 Jan 2019.
