It is now possible to help my muesli addiction, or possibly let me afford healthier food.

Having an independent income source would let me work on more free software stuff, even things that don't look good on a CV. And also create more art, possibly involving headpats.
But it's not like I'm starving or anything, so no pressure if you wanna give to someone more in need instead. That someone could even be yourself. Heck, go do something nice for yourself anyways.

Hi!
This is @grainloom 's art alt! Or @grainloom is @csepp 's social alt! Idk!

To start things off, here is some fanart of I first made because I needed a b&w avatar and then turned into a kind of ars poetica thing. That thing they say about limitations leading to more creativity definitely turned out to be true for this.

Well, now that I was forced to make an Arch chroot to install Infer I might as well also finally install DevkitARM. If I disappear for a week it's because I was sucked into DS homebrew dev.

There's a significant overlap in energy between mathematicians and clowns.

Look at this gosh darn mess that I wrote for extra credit. I'd better get those points because I wasted like 12 hours on this.

complaining about programming languages 

The Rust people were right, mutable aliased references are the root of all evil.
I just spend hours debugging some Python code where I switched from using a dict to a list of lists and didn't change the call to cells.copy().

Also like, what I need to do in this homework is pretty ugly to do in Python. List comprehensions and generators are nothing compared to Haskell's laziness, and no combination of OOP and MyPy has beaten Haskell's expressivity for me.

(although I had my suspicions already) that governments going on wild tree planting sprees is not gonna save us from climate catastrophe.
The source is in Hungarian and its primary source is paywalled, but here is a good counterexample that shows how such projects should work.

Some #sporespondence from a walk outside #Bristol at the weekend.

Not pictured: the Chicken Of The Woods that we bizarrely found growing right outside our house, after hunting all over for some for several weekends running.

spider 

@csepp I actually got sucked into this

One more set for you, and for me to discover the limits of this optical system

second frame is a tighter crop of the first

TIL: Spider legs have a 3 symmetry, if I'm seeing this right, in their hair growth! At least for these small ones

Philips screw head for scale

Thanks for your ideas.

> ... like chopping onions properly. The end goal is the meal as a whole.

This is the way we've traditionally taught juggling. Get the learner to toss 1 ball, then 2, then 3. Craig's insight is that they only get the *experience* of juggling when they get step 3. Anything short of that feels like failure and demotivates the learner. Producing a pile of chopped onions doesn't give you the *experience* of cooking a meal.
