I don’t want to be the guy that uses ChatGPT for my resume but I really do feel like I’m tying a hand behind my back if I don’t.

Advice for people who got a #3dprinter for Christmas: Enjoy making your benchies and flexi-rexes, but you should know now that the most satisfying things you'll ever print will look so boring that they become invisible.


Fusion tech really seems like its the silver bullet that could stop climate change. Seeing this breakthrough get the attention it deserves gives me a lot of hope for the future.

Frontier charges me $90 to change my flight to an earlier time, but outright buying the ticket at the earlier time is only $60. Never flying with them again they are just so ridiculously hostile towards their users.

Qoto new weekly signups appears to have peaked on Nov 11 at 4838 for that days trailing 7 days:

Today, it was only 129:

That's the lowest since Oct 29, when daily signups started increasing:

Not sure how this compares to the trend in other instances. I blindly speculate that other servers haven't seen the same decline and the conflict between instance operators is impacting Qoto. Which is unfortunate, because from my tiny vantage point, Qoto seems well run, and I don't see its policy of very limited blocking of other instances having negative consequences.

Nonetheless, I want to have one Fediverse presence and want to be able to interact with people on Qoto and on other instances that suspend Qoto, so I may have to migrate.

for folks who don't know, google specifically has like, the Most Advanced C++ Bug Catching/Mitigation Tools, to the point that they *took over the development of clang*

just using rust instead, even with 'unsafe' parts, completely blew all of that out of the water! holy shit!

The best dating advice I ever got was to remember that if someone ghosts me, they were probably a hired assassin who fell in love and couldn't finish the job.

"the secret scientists don't want you to know!!" Dude have you ever met a single scientist? My scientist friends are desperate for me to know about the changing mating habits of Brown marmorated stink bugs. They're screaming at the top of their lungs to tell you EVERYTHING.

The amount of work it takes to maintain header files in is honestly absurd

Any users out there notice service has been steadily degrading?

ATTENTION EVERYONE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER “#MASTODON ADMINS CAN READ MY DIRECT MESSAGES”: #SysAdmins have *always* been able to read your #email and DMs unless encrypted, including at the big #SocialNetworks and Internet providers. We used to have t-shirts that said, “I READ YOUR EMAIL.”

It’s just hitting now because you got used to places where the admins were kept away in their cubicles and data centers instead of greeting you at the front door.

Interested in the automated discovery of physical equations from data? Check out Julius's talk on DataDrivenDiffeq: a #julialang #sciml #symbolicregression #SymbolicAI package which lets you give time series data and returns the equations which generated the data. It even generates the LaTeX!
