I... I've spent almost two full weeks on getting this algorithm right.

They're aperiodic tilings of rhombs, which can be constructed through (de Bruijn's) method of multiple grids, which is effectively the same as projecting a 5/6/7/8/9, etc cube grid onto 2d. Shows up in nature as quasicrystals.

Tried to get this working in seexpr, failed miserably. Still spent like 2 days on getting something visible in #Krita.

I am so tired, but happy.

When you have to read long texts (for instance, a blog post), you prefer to read it with a _____ font

It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!


#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

is there a resource like "Haskell for schemers" ?

I'd need to learn at least some #Haskell in order to read Oleg Ksyelov's paper 😕

Boosts appreciated

How the heck do you label a micro-SD card? It's so tiny, I can't write this small even if I had an appropriate size sticker, which I do not.

this is why disaster area type bands have to play on a planet with a higher DC bias pressure than 101 kPa for faithful sound reproduction

its interesting that theres a maximum level of sound you can faithfully reproduce on earth because eventually the pressure difference is so great that the troughs of the waveform clip because they have created a vacuum

back on my sars-cov-2 vaxdev bullshit 

@starwall @FirstProgenitor

(tell me to get out of yr mentions if this is too much. also disclosure i've been doing contract bioinformatics work on vaccine development using a flu vector)

1. i think the risk of mutation against a vaccine is actually slightly lower for sars-cov-2 than other stuff because there are so *many* viable vaccines going onto the market. also it's a very unusual virus which we can't really generalize other stuff to

also there's been a large number of sequence point mutations people have made a big deal about ("oh this makes it 1000x as infective") but a lot of that is bs; epidemic virus genomes generally become less fit over time bc they specialize to specific circulating populations

2. the big issue with immunity and sars-cov-2 is that like some other coronaviruses, *detune your body's immune response*. this is why people stay on ventilators for so long: it takes their body ages to actually develop a good response


weed question, disability, mention of trauma 

we haven't taken a tolerance break in like

6 months?

but the thing is, we're *always* in a lot of pain, and also fighting off flashbacks

does anyone know a way we can reduce our tolerance without taking a break?

I understand why the straight edge of a dustpan inevitably buckles into the third dimension, but why do they always buckle *upwards* in the middle? It would be so much less of a problem if they could be made to consistently buckle downwards—then just pressing it against the floor would straighten it back out while in use.

@dankwraith waffle houses are still closed. no business should be allowed to open while the waffle house is still closed.

I'm seriously thinking in a way to throw Alan Turing in the face of people complaining about CoC and any movement protecting minorities.

Turing saved 2-14 million people and still got persecuted for being gay (or "different"), to the point that he killed himself.

We don't want to keep losing Alan Turings. We Need Alan Turings. We need to tell Alan Turings that they are welcomed.

(Yeah, I still need to refine it a bit better.)

Alright, folks, I'm salty.

Your interface needs to be LARGE, READABLE, and TEXTUAL - because I need to be able to communicate about it with my grandmother over the phone.

hello my name is Jessica and i need a job.

i have a PhD in Computer Science specializing in Machine Learning and Computer Vision, but at this point i would take nearly any programming work.

i have experience numerous languages, operating systems, frameworks, and toolkits.

i am also an autistic transgender lesbian so any work i take has to be accommodating.

i'm currently living in east coast USA but willing to relocate nearly anywhere.

résumé available on request, thank you ✨

i dont think the factor of our economic system can be understated in all these stories about shitty art industry dudes. again, abuse is about POWER. people have to put up with abuse because they need access to a job, have fear of losing a job, etc. if they didnt have those fears they wouldnt have to tolerate garbage behavior in a professional environment

think of something you've tried to do or learn before and found pretty difficult, especially something from when you were younger. if you try doing or learning it now, there's a decent chance you will still struggle with it... but a surprisingly high one that it'll somehow be really easy suddenly because you've picked up some orthogonal skill or knowledge that inexplicably changed your brain to a subtly different and better brain without you noticing
