Numberphile 15-minute video on Dehn invariants: youtube.com/watch?v=eYfpSAxGak

The Dehn invariant is a value derived from a polyhedron that doesn't change if you cut up the polyhedron into smaller polyhedral pieces and rearrange them into a different polyhedron. It's 0 for the cube and nonzero for other Platonic solids, proving that they can't be cut and rearranged into a cube. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehn_inv for more, in somewhat more technical detail than the video.

Dear spam filter designers,

If an email comes from person X with subject Y, and I recently send an email to X with subject Y, very likely that incoming email is not spam.

Yours,

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

I remember seeing a #Vim command or script somewhere that would go through the open buffer and show which highlighting rules were being applied to what text, which was really helpful for debugging syntax files and stuff, but I can't find it. Anyone happen to remember where it was or what it was called?

#PapuaNewGuinea inhabitants are in a race against #climate #change as they continue to lose their land to #rising #sea #levels and coastal #erosion. Since 1994, the islanders of the seven atolls have lost about 50% of their land. In an effort to relocate from a no longer habitable environment, they face devastating economic and political obstacles.
