Today's achievement: used "they're", "there", and "their" within the first five words of a single sentence

Online isn't working out quite like I hoped, but it is doing wonders for my songwriting.

I'm celebrating 10k bird site followers by spending more time on Mastodon.

Forgetting to wear gloves while making green chili reminds you that you're alive.

I like to think that Calculus Made Easy (Thompson, 1910) was addressed to boys because girls don't need so much help with math.

Sometimes when I break a string on my guitar I like to challenge myself to find something nice to play on the remaining strings. Tonight I'm down three strings and finding joy in This Must Be the Place.

I did a write up for the Hamburgsides keynote I did last year - 'The Mighty Superpowers of a well-established "Us"', about BlackHoodie, why XYZ-only workshops make sense, why otherness is an issue and about how-to Padawan 0x1338.blogspot.de/2017/04/the

The only thing complicated about complex numbers is that they have two parts instead of one. They are a natural extension of numbers we use every day (specifically, an extension of real numbers that is closed under exponentiation).

We use complex numbers in DSP (and especially in SDR) because they make things simpler, not more complicated. A little time spent getting comfortable with complex numbers will go very far toward helping you take advantage of the extreme flexibility of SDR.
