In-reply-to » 3 whole days in #Go I noticed my search history rolled back to: - "Convert an int to bool in Go" - "Swap two variables in Go" - "How to write a dictionary in Go"

@justamoment Hey I just cloned and tried this little game of yours! 😅 This is amazing, really quite good and in only ~600 lines of Go 👌 Very nice! I might show this to my youngest daughter to play 😆 – Now you just need to have levels, sound, music and so on… 🤣

In-reply-to » Introduced a colleague to ed(1) today. “Ohh, that’s nice. I always wanted to have a tool like that.” 🥳 (This refers strictly to ed’s ability to edit files from a script. Like, “search for regex $foo, go down five lines, now search for $bar from here, then change $x to $y in the matching line.”)

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I like ed(1) quite a lot really, so much so I wrote my own ed – Have you seen/tried it? 🤔 I also include it as a busybox-style binary in GoNix 😅

In-reply-to » Surprise rain all day long, so the birds weren't around. Armed with rain trousers and rain jackets we went on a drizzle hike this afternoon. It was very nice. The 4°C didn't feel that cold at all. More like 10°C. The plastic layer made for a good greenhouse. I had to strip my gloves and beanie a few minutes into the walk.

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org i’ll bet it was cold too?

In-reply-to » Hell yeah, this is an amazing castle out of building blocks made over the course of two years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZnau3WY8

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org That is very cool! My daughter said as she was watching it with me:

is that Harry Potter’s castle?

@darch@neotxt.dk I’m thinking we should do someyhing about the filters so that the screen real estate is not so used up? – Like maybe hide them behind something so they don’t always take up the space? 🤔

@justamoment actually that’s a brilliant idea! Do you think you could come up with the modification to the logo and we’ll apply it everywhere 😆

In-reply-to » @eaplmx This exact thing happened to me last night. I happened to be watching some random Youtube video, then this Ad came on, normally they are short 3-5s ads and I just tolerate them (sometimes) -- But this particular ad was 20+ mins long! Somehow I kept listening to it too, despite my daughter telling me I could hit that "Skip Ad" button.

@justamoment Probably – I’ll check later 👌

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

@eaplmx Yeah that was kind of my point, is that a modem is basically a modulation of some signal over a carrier wave of some kind 🤣 So we still actually use “modems” in some sense, we just don’t call ‘em that anymore 😆

@xuu@txt.sour.is I actually do have uBlock Origin installed on my browser I think … I might have to check again…

In-reply-to » Do not use services that hate the internet As you look around for a new social media platform, I implore you, only use one that is a part of the World Wide Web. If posts in a social media app do not have URLs that can be linked to and viewed in an unauthenticated browser, or if there is no way to make a new post from a browser, then that program is not a part of the World Wide Web in any meaningful way. Consign that app to oblivion. Yep. ⌘ Read more

@osnews@feeds.twtxt.net Interesting point of view here, which I kinda / sorta agree with 😅

@eaplmx You very likely use one now (unless you have Fibre) 🤣 They’re just now a lot fancier/faster and are multiplexed and have multiple streams 🤣 (DSL / vDSL) – Also Copper is garbage 😅

What was it you ask?! 😅 It was one of those testimonial-style, hyped up marketing videos of some product called “Gemini 2” (a currency trading app, allegedly), I kept watching all the way through, it was fantastic! 🤣

Then I went and read up on it! …

Short answer: TOTAL FUCKING SCAM 🤣

In-reply-to » Regarding "echo chambers": this is a popular, popularized term. It makes some kind of sense to a person who thinks a certain way, but introspection or intuitiveness does not a fact make.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci This is an interesting point 👌 Yes we have a choice, we can choose to have a different mindset from the start 🤞 – The part that I personally find wrong is information systems using this against us (humans) and modifying our behaviour en-mass.

In-reply-to » Actually my house burnt to the ground, and my pc was inside, so my PC burnt. The course was a standford course (in their old platform lagunita) by the famous Professor Jeffrey Ullman. But you can find the course (very interesting already read the book many times, before he burnt too :D) in edx : https://www.edx.org/course/mining-massive-datasets?index=product&queryID=99850d48786919886c407ba517259a5c&position=1

@tkanos Oh thank god 🙏
