This is a truly bizarre and fascinating computational project involving BBC BASIC and finally wrapped up into a GIF 89a; along with songs by the Velvet Underground and the Pixies, my project Curveship was even implicated in its making http://thenewriver.us/here-comes-her-man/
@aparrish It was terrifying and tremendously challenging. But people did the work, had results, and seemed to appreciate what efforts I was able to make
Update: I was able to fix this problem in a rather classic way: Turn computer off, turn on again.
In my defense, the upgrade process did involve several automatic reboots and seemed to have finished without needed a manual one at the end.
@twsh So far no financial institution has had me set up a security question like “At what university did you give your first academic talk?”
@twsh If that works, sure. It helps me at least to have mine online, in HTML format, and none of the information in it is secret
@twsh In this academic’s case, it helps me remember what I’ve done during my life (in terms of talks, etc.)
Today’s prompt from https://taper.badquar.to/4/straight_strategies.html
To make sense is to be clear and intelligible, but what was there before sense was made, and what is sense made out of? Language, or the world? Sense is meaning; also feeling, sensation. The MBTI contrasts “sensing” with “intuitive.” The former is concrete, the latter abstract. Do you sense this discussion makes sense, or am I asking you to intuit something you’d rather be experiencing through sense? Should I have marked this media as sensitive?
