Since I did the same on my old instance, thought I should have an intro here as well, it’s mostly stolen from there

[insert since it seems those hashtags are popular or something]

My name is Ștefan (ș being sh or s if you’re English), 20 y.o., ♑, he/him, leftist and all that. I’m sadly living in Romania, I’m an undergrad in computer science and I’ve tried waaaay too many programming languages.

My usual speciality is programming, I prefer functional programming (and Lisps such as , and sometimes), math (mostly real analysis, calculus, number theory and geometric algebra).

I am also interested in (and NLP), post-WWII history (especially post-‘89), and (and generally low-level stuff), and , and (and stuff) and , and (don’t @ me) among many other things. I hope I’ll be welcomed here!

Nearly missed this sign while walking along 120th Street near Malcolm X Blvd in #Harlem, during my visit home for the Yuletide season.

This is an excerpt from MLK Jr’s “Where Do We Go from Here?” sermon at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference annual convention in Atlanta, GA in 1967.

Hate is a poison that afflicts both those who weld it and those they target. Can America finally rid itself of this toxin??

@freemo visited the GItLab instance right now, I still can’t delete repos, even if I move them to another group

interestingly enough, I get 403 Forbidden on glab, GitLab’s CLI tool, even though I am the owner of all these repos. here’s a pic below. maybe you did some funky stuff with member permissions or something, I don’t know

if 6.5 million people had been eaten by tigers and there was suddenly a new wave of super-tigers that could evade all existing anti-tiger precautions, people would think you'd lost the plot if you declared that the tiger problem was basically over

@freemo do you have any plans on checking out the current merge requests on UFoI’s GitLab? I’ve done quite an intensive MR you could look at (along with some other MRs)

Be sure to catch the end of this clever NASA "climate spiral" video showing monthly global temperature changes between 1880 and 2021 #dataviz #boost #climatechange #climate

I just get in to xkcd comixs, here is my favoryte one so far.

100 Mastodon myths:

1. Mastodon is hard.

FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.

2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.

FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.

3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.

FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.

4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.

FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.

As long as the code behind "smart" home devices is proprietary, these companies are free to spy on us as much as they like. Help us fight back: tell your friends about free software and urge then to join the FSF! Support #FreeSoftware.

For users that’ve used before:

How can I:

  1. have some bitmap text on the screen?
  2. send input to the OpenGL widget so I can replicate a basic terminal?

I am new to PySide (PySide2 in particular, but I welcome PySide6 code too) and can’t figure out for the life of me how to do that.

Thanks for your attention!
