@Nocta @jk You gotta get up REAL EARLY* to get past me =w=

(*: like, i dunno, earlier than 2pm honestly and even then I might not be awake enough until like midnight that day)

@Nocta damn you time travelling europeans with your hours ahead of us UKers!

@Nine I wasn't sure since your post was kinda late XD

@Nocta like I said, REAL EARLY* =w=

(*late because I am a sleepy sknq =w=; )

@Nine

If capitalism didn't force me to wake up I would probably have roughly the same hours XD

@Nocta mostly i'm forced to wake up at like 7am these days because we got workmen working on things nearby so lotsa drilling, sawing, banging etc, plus needing to move cars from the driveway so they can get in. e_e; ducks don't seem to mind much... nor do the cats, lol

@Nocta ah don't feel so bad, I'm like... kinda wildly priveledged tbh. ._.; I get to work as a writer full time and sure my situation isn't FULLY secure but... as long as the work I've been churning out these last few months goes well... I'll be more or less stable. Not WEALTHY, but... definitely stable.

@Nine I see ^^'
I hope it'll get better for you though

@Nocta ah it's okay! I'm honestly doing a lot better than I was some years back.

@Nocta and honestly, so many people don't even get THAT chance. :( So... It's not like people have to feel sorry for me. I'm honeslty dojing better than a LOT of people here; I wish they had the hcances I do. :/

@jk teacher stands in front of chalkboard with "computer science" written over it and then crossed out. they have a smirk on their face.

@jk Computer so called science actually has a lot in common with magic we conjure the spirits of the computer with our spells we conjure the spirits of the computer with our spells.....

@jk for those without context, this is taken from SICP youtube.com/watch?v=-J_xL4IGhJ which formed the basis for modern computer so called science education (or rather it was appropriated), but most of the philosophy behind SICP that the creators have has been completely ignored

@jk underneath he writes

LAMBDA WIZARDRY

and walks out of the classroom

@jk
"Go back, computers were a mistake!"

"We can't! We already removed ctrl+z!"

@jk

Did you ever read "The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect"? What a weeeeeeird story.

@jk I have seen science done with computers... under laboratory conditions, never once in the wild.

@jk I didn't see this and yet just minutes later apparently I linked to it (the SICP videos) octodon.social/@cwebber/104836

@cxli @jk What I imagine any future Summer School presentation from you. 1 minute long.

@jk First off, it's not a science. It might be art or engineering, but we'll see computer so-called science actually has a lot in common with magic. And it's not about computers, in the sense that biology isn't about Petri dishes and geometry isn't about using surveying tools.
