There's one company who claims to produce fuel from waste, looks quite cool and it appears they're actually producing small hydrocarbons rather than stuff such as methanol.
But how does it work? I cannot find information about this process easily.
Do you know what they could be doing, at what scale it can be applied and if it could actually be profitable?

Una volta un tipo che conoscevo rilevò l'agenzia immobiliare di una sua amica.

15 giorni dopo vendette una villa, intascò una ventina di milioni di commissione… e si affrettò a cedere l'agenzia 😄

Non so se ne ho già scritto a riguardo, però il gruppo di Andrea Rapisarda di Catania ha vinto per la seconda volta il premio igNobel con una dimostrazione matematica che le persone di successo non sono le più capaci ma le più fortunate.
Il primo premio invece lo vinsero dimostrando che le aziende sarebbero più efficienti promuovendo persone a caso.

Il RPi che tiene oloturia_bot, buonanotte e damastodon è crashato. Non dovrebbe essere niente di troppo grave (anche perché ho clonato l'SD) ma ne approfitto per parlarne, cosicché si potranno seguire quando tornerà online.

@oloturia_bot È un generatore automatico di strisce a fumetti. Compone a caso vignette e testi e ogni giorno ne carica tre, c'è anche in pessimo inglese e in francesau! Dovrebbe anche andare on-demand via messaggio diretto. Esisteva anche su Twitter e tutt'ora è su Telegram.

@buonanotte Vi ricorda quando andare a dormire. Il problema è che se il RPi viene riavviato (ie. temporaneo blackout) se ne dimentica. Prima o poi lo sistemerò.

@damastodon Servirebbe per fare partite a dama e forza4. Pure lui si dimentica le cose nei blackout.

@GustavinoBevilacqua Da quando in qua s'è fatto Ragioniere, Dottore? Mi perdoni, data la distanza devo essermi perso le celebrazioni.

Using Linux, open Windows virtual machine to run some specific software that'll never work with wine.
The virtual machine reboots because of updates...

Funnily, this thing of automatic reboots never happened to me while using a computer with Windows 10, I figure it's something that rarely happens but people complain a lot about.

Thinking about buying a sci-hub t-shirt, some advertisement is always good.

Interesting #paper on the availability of #statistical #code in European Urology papers. And a checklist to get us all thinking about how good the code we share is.

thanks for finding and posting it first @MarkKelson

@rastinza seems like a classic CI/CD example.

One could have used a hook on the push to main which would automatically build and then send to server. This is what still missing for my setup.

I do something similar, where I wrote my own bash script that would build the code and then rsync to server via ssh.

@rastinza It's still a comparatively small field within philosophy of science, hoping to change that!

So, what I ended up doing is the following: I have a folder on my local computer which is tracked through git and I sync this with a remote server.
On the server on which I need the software I do not have the git repository.
In the git repository I have all the documents I'm developing, a lib folder, a build folder, a deploy folder and a virtual environment.
I have a post-commit hook which builds all the software and in the deploy folder I have symlinks to all the executables I want to have on the server.
The hook also pushed everything in the deploy folder and everything in the lib folder to a stow directory on the server through rsync.
At this point I can update any existing software by simply changing the code and committing.
To add new programs I have to perform an extra step, which is to restow the folder on the server.
This works out quite nicely for me, since virtual environment and all build dependencies stay out of the way and I easily get everything on the server.
I might as well start writing some tests for my software, but that will come a bit later...

Hi everyone!

I'm Marabel, I'm a PhD student working on philosophy of science, more specifically philosophy of chemistry. I'm also interested in feminist philosophy. Before I went into philosophy of science full-time, I was in analytical chemistry, where I did a lot of very fun work on archaeological objects like Ancient Egyptian eyeliner and neolithic stone tools.
