And here we are, I have another announcement to make. I guess my last...

I’m sorry.

I’m sorry that I deceived you, but I didn’t know it at the time.

Due to a misunderstanding, somewhere along the way, the one month contract was just that, one month only. I had interpreted it as “I’m not sure if I can make a new contract with the same terms, because there’s not enough money right now, but let’s start with one month and take it from there.”

If you want to support me personally, for long-term sustainable work with Mastodon (in case Gargron doesn't want to hire me or can't keep me hired, or I can't work enough to warrant being hired), consider supporting me directly on or .

I have a feeling there’s going to be a lot of questions. Some of you wont even know what I’m back from/for?

I’m back as Project Manager for .

I’m back from being sick, too sick to function. I ended up getting a month and a half of sick-leave, but it took me a while to actually get there. And that, together with some other stuff, has brought me back, on top of the world (that's how I feel)

If anyone is wondering why I'm over here tooting, it's because new place is down for upgrade.

People talk about how neural network research is the next great job to get into after programming, but personally I suspect adversarial neural network research is going to be even bigger.

Know what's bigger than making a thing? Knowing how to break it - or securing it from being broken.

For example, this video that demonstrates a 3D printed turtle purposely designed to make a network think its looking at a rifle instead: youtube.com/watch?v=piYnd_wYlT

OK, here is a preview -- just for Mastodon -- of the choral music I will put online properly tomorrow:

All this said, if @Gargron can forgive me causing public drama yesterday, and be understanding of where I'm coming from here, I'm more than willing to forgive him too for the miscommunication, if he asks my forgiveness without deflecting.

If not, that's okay too.

This apology is to both Gargron and everyone else, as public drama effects us all: I'm sorry that I let my inner turmoil get the best of me yesterday, and I hope that you can find it in you to forgive me. 🙏

All that said yesterday, I'm not one to hold a grudge for very long. And I'm willing to forgive and move on.

As I said in my initial about my role at there was miscommunication, maybe across the board.

@Gargron said one thing to him, and I read another to me.

It happens, and I'm not above fault, neither is he.

It would however require us both to be willing to ask for forgiveness. And work something out that would be sustainable for the project.

The goal is not to teach children they should be alone and control everything around them. The goal is to teach children that personal boundaries *and* a modicum of care for others are both equally important to personal freedom and coexistence

20 year as a software developer...

PHP?

Amazing language that desperately needs a compiler, that suffers from the fact that it's so easy to do stupid shit in it, and that is unfairly pigeonholed (by its own creators, no less) as a web language, rather than embracing the fully featured general purpose language that it is.
