TIL today: Lambert, from Alien, is canonically a trans woman?? Like for real, it's talked about in her file in the movie

This is WILD i had no idea and i love this new knowledge

Me: fuck car-centric infrastructure.

Also me: immediately updates #OpenStreetMap as soon as a new overpass is built.

The computers on the Voyager probes have over 40 years of uptime, and have been patched at distances measured in light-hours. How?

Reliability, redundancy, reconfigurability.

Radiation-hardened parts, cross-connectible backups, all memory is RAM.

They've patched 'em to have better data compression and more efficient forward error correction as distance resulted in reduced bandwidth.

Can cache data when there's no signal. Have turned off instruments to save power.

And another one of my pictures. This one is from a hike near Lichtenstein.
Little break underneath this plant :)

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

Beautiful Baltimore Oriole from back in May. I've got lots of video of four or five individuals, but I've been too lazy to do edit it yet.

When PHP is your screwdriver, everything looks like a nail.

This was my last roommate's cat, whose name I do not remember but who lost a chunk of ear in an alley scrap #internationalcatday
