@Shamar I've seen you espouse the virtue of simple HTML sites. What do you think about sites like this: https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2018/09/how-to-build-a-lowtech-website.html that run off of Pelican (#Python)?
Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokémon of their choosing.
It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.
- Translations for 4 languages (English, German, Italian, French)
- Clear way to claim your own Pokémon
- Responsive layout
Does anyone know some #newspaper account in Mastodon? I'm looking for something about international news if possible 🙂.
Breaking news in the algorithmic/arithmetic world!
Integer multiplication in time O(n · log n). 
It means you can multiply two n-bits integer using roughly n log n operations. It's a *very* important problem because a lot of mathematical software rely on efficient integer multiplication.
It breaks the last best known algorithm  (Schönhage–Strassen), that was in O(n · log n · log log n)
We saw the cutest thing today when we were in the metro.
We walked past a #blind woman who was feeling her way around with her walking stick. As we were waiting by the turnstiles for our bus, we see another blind man waiting at the turnstiles. When he hears a walking stick swinging around, he taps his on the ground three times. The woman tapped hers three times in response and then both their faces lit up.
They ran to each other, embraced, felt their faces, and kissed.
J'ai toujours bien aimé Tchebychev pour ces travaux mathématiques bien sûr mais surtout par ce qu'il nous a laissé une grande liberté pour orthographier son nom 😂
These nice folks have engaged with me, most likely on a maths topic. Simply starting to follow me, or reacting on followfriday posts counts just as well.
Y'all are so cool! Thank you!
Discovery of the day:
A Brazilian number \(n\) is an integer whose base–\(b\) representation has all the same digits for some \(1< b < n−1\).

This particular thread on /r/math blew up: a Deputy is asking a question on behalf of an inmate who did a little personal investigation into some number theory
People really like the idea of the Deputy encouraging the inmate to dig deeper into the #maths, and keeping him mentally stimulated + educated while in prison
PhD student in maths/computer science, curious in anything :).
Toots in English and occasionally en français.
A Mastodon instance for maths people. The kind of people who make \(\pi z^2 \times a\) jokes.
