In-reply-to » Are we having a video call this weekend?

@prologic@twtxt.net Saturday @ 1200 UTC or Sunday@1200?

It’s 6am for me. 🤔
Usually I wake up at 7 on Saturdays b/c I start classes at 10am. Hmm, if I’m out of bed early I’ll join!
Could you share the link again? I should bookmark it!

@prologic@twtxt.net @darch@neotxt.dk guys, today I’m not feeling well, I woke up at 5 am to take my wife to the airport, and after work I just came to die in bed, well, recovering from the flu and sleep a bit.
Care to try tomorrow? My Saturday night, Sunday morning in Europe 🌅 and an unknown time in AU 😛
I know it’s difficult on Sundays, but Saturday afternoons are my best moment 😅

@bender She’s only on the tiled floor, and a bit on cement in the ‘backyard’.
Nice catch! I thought I trimmed her nails a few weeks ago, but I’ll check this weekend. 😃

In-reply-to » @marado that sounds way more accurate 😀

@prologic well, I use some 5 Ghz antenna (no idea what technologies or protocols it uses) since there wasn’t a pole for cables in the neighborhood. But the most possible thing is that they are using a modem at the end 💁‍♂️

In-reply-to » I spent a fair amount of my spare time this week diving into some ancient computer science from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s (!!!), specifically Dana Angluin's L* algorithm for learning a finite state machine from an oracle and Rivest & Shapire's followups and extensions. Quite beautiful work in my opinion.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci this one?

Being a fan of A*, I didn’t know that existed

I’m not felling well today, there was an ‘contagious outbreak’ of influenza at college, and I think I have it now 😷, or perhaps a simple flu, no idea…

I guess I’ll stop early today, tomorrow will be a better day

In-reply-to » Social media should be forbidden before 18.

I got to say that my computer was in a public hall from the house, so I was kind of supervised, but had chance to watch adult content (I’m not a fan), gore and some disturbing stuff for that age. I knew more about computers than my parents and grand-parents, so the risk was there. #anecdotalEvidence

As I have the discussion with my colleagues making games, we can’t say that violent games don’t influence kids, but neither we can say the opposite. I think the amount depends on the social context, and mainly on family foundations, so it’s an extremely hard problem to solve.

@xuu@txt.sour.is I started using Internet in 1993, but at home in 1996 if I remember correctly, with timed accounts from friends in college. Luckily dial up here was inexpensive and unlimited very soon, I can’t recall exact details but it started with 24 or 33kbps and quickly to 56k. Sadly DSL took a few years more than in USA to be available.

Great times!

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I disagree with your disagreement… How about that? Just joking… It’s OK to disagree

I think giving an e-device is worse than allowing a teenager to create a profile on social media. Finally they are having social profiles at school and in real life, not changing neurons and the brain itself. The interesting part is that teenagers reach to be ‘public’ figures earlier. But again, you have to cross some boundaries like sexual content or bullying, to be really dangerous. Other than that is similar exposure that teenagers have at school, and without some platform regulating content…
Yes, there are suicides, but not for every person, while every toddler is changing their brain and losing skills. (I need to find references here, for sure)
Is not black and white, both have risks. That’s why I say, it’s similar. Both require attention from parents, but taking e-devices away is less convenient as they take care of children.

@tkanos damn! I don’t know what to say, I hope it’s only recoverable losses.

Reading your tweet, I remembered a joke from a local comedian. Something like “News by phone”.
It starts with a dead parrot 🦜, you can guess increasing tragedies are told, including a burnt house 🏠.

Sorry, I thought the PC was burnt due to the AoC somehow.

In-reply-to » I share with you the first 'public alpha' of the tool to vote for the best time on an International Call.

@mckinley thanks !
One goal is not requiring JS (but helps with some automations like finding your current timezone, copying URLs and such)

Using details sounds great, I’ll take a look! https://www.w3schools.com/TAGS/tag_details.asp
