Time for new #introductions!
I also do software stuff because of course.
There's this kid in our #Battletoads chat that really wants a sandbox/open-world Battletoads game, and that's just a cognitive dissonance for me.
It's like, I don't know, wanting a Battletoads musical... okay, actually, that would be pretty cool. Coming Out Of Our Shells worked for the turtles, right?
Universal bug report: "Why did this break? It was working just a moment ago! I didn't change anything!"
Me: *starts investigating*
Universal bug report response: "You did, in fact, change something. But we shouldn't be breaking anyway. I'll work on a fix."
This is how software gets engineered and developed.
@webinista omg you're back!
Big update to https://henryseg.github.io/cohomology_fractals - we now have all of the manifolds in the orientable SnapPy census up to 7 tetrahedra, and sliders to make linear combinations of cohomology classes (try m129). With David Bachman and Saul Schleimer.
Hm, what's the brand name of those super-fancy circular #knitting interchangeable needles that everyone covets?
I’m not like talking shit. I’m being so deadass.
This specification is so DETAILED. It can capture everything Twitter currently does and so much more! (https://v2.jacky.wtf//post/b34ff90d-9acb-48dd-b4fb-d04ac521c4e0)
OMG I just noticed that someone implemented the #medcouple algorithm:
They relied on my Wikipedia article:
However, they also obviously copied my GPLed source code! It has the same comments and variable names!
And there's no attribution to me, and it's released under a weak free license.
Should I raise a stink?
Birdsite cannot into fediverse?
So looks like Twitter would like someone to develop a protocol for a decentralised communication platform, eh?
I'm pretty sure I played #chess against Bobby Fischer online sometime in the 1990s in the Internet Chess Club.
If it wasn't Bobby Fischer, it was someone who certainly acted like him. Brash, arrogant, lots of Yiddish slang, and of course called me a patzer over and over again. And beat me without any effort.
I'll never know if I actually did, but I like to believe I had my brush with fame and it was kind of funny: the fame just insulted me.
Battletoads variety hour in 10 minutes!
