@chriswere I would like to see more free open source games on F-Dorid personally, would love simple little fun games to pass the time instead of these cash grab apps you find on the Play Store

@kaniini So I should expect it to allow only forms of the flu that paid it off! Got it! :D

I wish paultag had never infected me with the mindvirus of wanting a tiling window manager based off the aesthetic of The Music Scene by Blockhead's music video youtube.com/watch?v=NhheiPTdZC

Every programmer should be required to learn about Therac-25 and the Ariane 5 explosion. And if they laugh at those and don't take lessons away from it, they don't deserve to be programmers.

How much about these β€œkey concepts” of encryption do you know?
- Cipher, key
- Symmetric, asymmetric encryption
- Private, public keys
- Identity verification for people (public key fingerprints)
- Identity verification for websites (security certificates) ssd.eff.org/en/module/key-conc

is there a list of "fun" mogrify/convert options around?

A math-puzzle hint: whenever you're presented with a mathematical paradox, look for the place where someone's multiplying by 0.

For instance:

a = b
a^2 = ab
a^2 - b^2 = ab - b^2
(a-b)(a+b) = b(a-b)
a+b = b
b + b = b
2b = b
2 = 1

But if a = b, then in line 4, multiplying against (a-b) means multiplying against 0, and if both sides of your equation at any point equal 0 then you can do just about anything you want and yield what looks like a valid response.

hey if you run a mid size to large mastodon instance, want to run the following things in the masto console and tell me the output? I need some values for comparison

Status.local.where('created_at > ?', 1.day.ago).count('distinct account_id')

Status.local.where('created_at > ?', 7.day.ago).count('distinct account_id')

Status.local.where('created_at > ?', 31.day.ago).count('distinct account_id')

(counts daily/weekly/monthly distinct users that posted at least once. boosts appreciated!)

Oh hey, it's been ten years so my NDA has expired. One of the jobs I had, briefly - although I didn't know who I was actually working for when I had the job - was training the search algorithm for Microsoft's Bing search engine. We were given a search term and a website, and told to rate the website on how well it matched the search term; part of the job was guessing the relevance of the page content (for example, they wanted "amazon books" to yield Amazon.com more often than the river).
