I like how they embedded the game in the post!
Spent a moment making sure https://isthisprime.com/game/ works on tiny viewports. I got a decent score, too!

Please add your opinions!
I've made a change to LaTeX editing on mathstodon.xyz: unicode equivalents outside maths delimeters are no longer automatically inserted. Instead, when you select a LaTeX autocompletion, if it can be rendered using just unicode, that's inserted instead of the LaTeX code.

Wrote a new post on the basics of analyzing Impartial Games. More to follow!

Also mathematicians: I need some brackets. Guess I'll use good ol' parentheses again! 😎
