@baldur this maybe too selfish a question, but have you considered differentiating the avatars for your accounts? 😇
There's also "Leela Zero", an AlphaZero-style Go engine, but it will still need about a year of crowd-sourced training to obtain notable strength: https://github.com/leela-zero/leela-zero
I knew it!!!
I always had a hunch but it's great to get confirmation
web tech, equation labels Show more
Traditional equation labels are quite intractable in CSS and SVG. They float to a side but don't contribute to the width of the main equation body (which is important for cross-expression alignments).
It's fairly amazing that MathJax v3 will do this in SVG.
Can't find that DOM node that has a pesky scrollbar you want to get rid of?
Now in Firefox Nightly, elements that are scrollable are marked as such in the inspector!
Ich brauche mal eure Hilfe: In welcher Superman-Geschichte wird das mit der Brille, die Clark Kent tragen muss, um sich nicht als Supermann zu verraten thematisiert? Frage für einen kleinen Kerl, der gerade den Blues hat, weil er mit 5 Jahren ne Brille braucht. #verfolgerkraft gerne weiterleiten!

Describing Cedric Villani as "AI-strategist" is a tad odd; like calling Albert Einstein a rocket scientist.
This is critical — it needs contributions.

Will be extremely useful, if it fosters numerous contributions, so let’s do it! #a11y http://adrianroselli.com/2019/01/announcing-a11y-reviews.html
asking for resources on differential equations Show more
I’m taking an introductory course to ODEs this semester. As a BSc maths course, it is light on applications. As it has no prerequisites beyond basic single-variable calculus, it is also light on theory. Practically all that’s left is equation solving, which isn’t very motivating.
Do you have favourite resources/books/whatever on the topic? All suggestions are appreciated.

It's mind blowing that there are completely inaccessible textbook reading apps out there. They all deserve to get sued.
@christianp have you reached out to other asciimath implementors?
I was hoping the MathOnWebCG might be a good place to come together for some form of standardization.

of course this isn't new. It's just STILL not fixed.

In no surprise to anyone, Kindle Apps do not even expose images with alt text correctly.
As part of my expanded/changed role at Mozilla platform engineering, Accessibility, my current job involves what we internally call Quantum Accessibility, which in a nutshell means: Make Firefox accessibility faster bit by bit, here and there, nibbling away at those milliseconds it takes for information to reach assistive technologies when requested.
