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"

This is easy! I know exactly what to do!

She says… 🤣

You won!

I said! 🥳

Needs more game play 🤗

@justamoment@twtxt.net 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?

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

is that Harry Potter’s castle?

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.

@eaplmx@twtxt.net oh wow, I’d never heard of that L*. I suppose such a short name is bound to be reused.

I was thinking about Dana Angluin’s algorithm, from 1987. Ancient computer science. The kind that youngsters ought to be taught, but rarely are.

Switched my Sandstorm dev box from an Ubuntu machine to a Debian one this week. Night and day difference in performance, once you get past the part where Debian fresh installs broken in various subtle ways.

@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? 🤔

In-reply-to » Alrighty folks! It's that time o year, and this year I got my daughter to take me a new Holiday Season headshot 🤣

@justamoment@twtxt.net 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@twtxt.net Probably – I’ll check later 👌

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

@eaplmx@twtxt.net 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 😆

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

@prologic@twtxt.net 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 💁‍♂️

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci this one?

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