Huh. There's a company that's making a new programmable scientific calculator. The software is CC-licensed and it's programmable in Python.

numworks.com/

Their repo is here:

github.com/numworks

It's CC non-commercial rather than FOSS, but that's still way better than anyone else.

(Hey @natecull and @ajroach42; is this your sort of thing?)

alright fancy pantses, where should I get a funny domain name for, I don't know, a dollar

@joshg I have three accounts on different instances, all named joshg, and the only way I can see the difference between them in twidere is via profile pics

Show thread

Verdict so far on using twidere to scan both birbsite and Mastodon accounts: does the job, would be nice if it were more obvious which posts come from which account, language in the UI uses only birbsite language which is meh

At the top of everyone's computer security threat models should be:

1. Silicon Valley is run by a clique of unaccountable billionaires at least some of whom are actual Nazis, or at least Nazi-curious and find Nazis sympathetic and interesting and worth hearing out because they have important and fun ideas

2. The United States Government, as of 2017, is run by people who are actual Nazis and also Russian Mafia

Yet very few Silicon Valley Best Practices seem to take #1 into account

New Horizons and Voyager 1 data seems to indicate that there is some kind of hydrogen wall at the edge of the solar system. That’s...super weird??

but seriously it's stupid-hot outside and I'm not about to go do real work today

I could work on school stuff, or
I could work on a Unity platformer for my kids, or
I could clear out my Inbox of trash from the last two years, or
I could go see if I've missed anything cool on Mastodon, or

uh I'm running out of procrastinations y'all

hey what it's been six months and I'm back except now I'm posting something to mastodon.social instead of my other account

how's life

josh g. boosted

Welp due to wanting to support only anti-Nazi, anti-misogyny Masto, I'm mostly posting here on kitty.town instead of cybre.space; but if you hate bouncing after my instance migrations just wait a while, I'll probably run my own personal masto instance in a few weeks.

Okay so I'm gonna mostly post from this account for now, but I'll boost from my .social account if it's important and not just a shitpost

so, uh

yeah

we'll see how this goes

@chr Keeping an eye on the registration time later today ... how long is that going to be open for?
