@ColinTheMathmo Wouldn't normally ask, but spotthestation is timing out for me. Any passes of the ISS tonight? Unsure but I may have seen crew dragon endeavour last night as a faint dot passing over the moon. Seemed to be about the right time, given rotation of the earth and orbital period (didn't work it out exactly, just back of the envelope with generous rounding and even more generous prosecco)

Tipsy before 2pm. Sangria was a good choice to finish off my 4 day weekend with.

My shuffled playlist just went from Jeff Wayne's "Brave New World" (War of the Worlds) to Chuck Berry's "Jonny B. Goode". Such a bizarre juxtaposition when listened to.

Some major retailers are refusing to accept and pay for garments ordered and now made, so this company is looking to sell them direct: loststock.co/

Haven’t had a nice clear night for stargazing (that wasn’t uncomfortably cold) for weeks. Doesn’t help that nobody around here is selling logs or coal right now (only charcoal for barbecues) so I can’t even have a fire going if I’m sitting out the back stargazing.

Anybody have a working image for the ? My only working suitable serial connector got bent recently, and rewiring it is a pain in the arse, so I’m waiting for a new one to arrive.

Made a loaf with nigella seeds last night. My god I need to use these more often.

Q: Why do communists drink fruit tea? A: Because proper tea is theft.

Thank-you Damien Couderc and all OpenBSD developers! :flan_thumbs:

Am I the only one out there who plays racing sims simply to drive the most boring ass normal cars?

Sprained my neck almost immediately after waking up. I guess this weekend is a write-off.

Short blog post on getting started with ed(1) 

A little thin on details, but providing it for completeness.

@raichoo cool! Here's a joke about a mathematician's log working on proving a theorem:

Day 1. I tried to prove the theorem.
Day 2. I tried to prove the theorem.
Day 3. I tried to prove the theorem.
Day 4. I tried to prove the theorem.
Day 5. I tried to prove the theorem.
Day 6. Success! I disproved the theorem.

Conway has died.

People here might know him best for the "Game of Life", but he did so much more. The book about Conway by Siobhan Roberts is an interesting read about the man and his work.

Some will know Conway via is work on the Classification of Finite Simple Groups (with *many* others), some via his "Look and Say" sequence, while still others will know his book "Winning Ways", written with Richard Guy and Elwyn Berlekamp. My copy signed by all three is something I treasure.
