Pinned toot

Hello friends! Any resources (YouTube, blogs, books, podcasts) to recommend re: recreational math?

What are some of your favorite things (theorem, technique, field, etc.) in mathematics?

I figured it was about time to post an here. (Thanks again @christianp for inviting me!)

Hi! I'm Accio. I enjoy , , , , and . I am heavily considering a math-related career, so if you do math for your job, please share!

In my search to explore the lands of Mastodon, I have another account (@acciobooks).

Also, incomplete math project I did: mathwhiz.github.io/vectorpres/

Academic book that I could write that might actually be fun, but idk about the copyright-type issues:

The research ethics of Aperture Laboratories

It would be an intro to research ethics that takes cues from the flagrant ethical issues that are caricatured in the Portal games to discuss the major topics in research ethics and eventually tie them in to real-world examples

It would be aimed at a popular audience, but usable as an into university course textbook

a child is a lot like a dog in certain ways, yet is very different in others. life is funny

Would you enjoy differently-sized headings, blockquotes, code blocks, bullet point lists and other rich text features in toots on your home feed?

The radio informs me that Monday has once again escaped confinement. Be careful out there folks.

I've just updated "The Crown of Idbol Bark," an adventure set during my fantasy world's contemporary era.

It's still a draft, but I feel like it's getting closer to what it should be.

Dwarf Fortress has announced that they are working on adding trans dwarves, and they'd have added then already of he hadn't overcomplicated his thinking.

.... last time when he added gay dwarves he rewrote a large chuck of the personality system so that gay, lesbian, ace and bi dwarves would all arise naturally from the system, so that kinda makes sense.

privacy is your local scope where you perform your local reasoning

maybe people who don't think privacy is important are okay with programming by only mutating global variables

Windows is getting a Microsoft built Linux kernel as a shipped component in windows.

Interesting fact! Did you know the phrase "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish" was used by Microsoft internally to describe their strategy for gaining control of non-proprietary software/standards and stifling competition? Now you do!

Smooches!

Hey guys, im seeing a lot of dissatisfaction with Purism and the Librem phone in my timeline.

Don't let that turn you off the whole concept of a GNU/Linux phone. The community still has projects like the Pinephone in the pipeline. pine64.org/pinephone/

Hi, I'm new here and I did not know here had a math community and I decided to join. I hope to share with all of you and learn new things from you. I speak Spanish and English. At this moment I study by my own mathematics. I love learning new things that I don't know. Nice to meet you, guys.

I've been on Mastodon for a time. That's the reason I created an account here to sharing mathematics topics with all of you. :)

@grainloom In reference to Tom Scott's show "Questionable", air travel should be made illegal just so that everyone who flies can be a sky pirate.

Hey, #Firefox-using friends—

If you lost access to your add-ons this past weekend and you tried some advice to set `xpinstall.signatures.required` to `false` in `about:config`, you should

1. install the latest update, and

2. flip that setting back to `true`.

It's important to have this setting on to help protect you against malicious extensions.

(Don't @ me about whether you personally need or want Mozilla to sign the extensions you use. Consider this toot may not be for you.)

One of the many personal projects I'm working on is #qtMUD, a game engine for running a #MUD, or /multi-user dungeons/: the original kind of #MMORPG, that used just words (and ASCII art) to convey its information to the player.

I'm restarting the project in #CrystalLang, but for my own refreshment, wrote a short essay about how the engine works, in its current #PythonLang.
