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.

@neauoire my point is that we (humanity) comprise a huge population reliant on existing dumbed down support systems fostered by capital, governments, social constructs (technology replaces competency, capital in its guises effectively farms humanity). freedom is a two-edged sword (parsons). strip away the support structure and most of us have no way to survive. we transfer responsibility for the dependent class from capital to the competent. what do the competent do with the ones incapable of learning, or succeeding, or surviving? i’m not saying, “let them die,” i’m asking if you’ve considered the problem. and again, sorry, i’ve trolled myself, this is indeed the wrong medium.

@sejo because it's liberating. if you have a computer and need a boring automatable job doing, but you can't program, you have to either hope someone else had to do exactly the same thing at some point (and that you can guess what they called it), or pay someone who can program to figure it out. but if you can program, you can just do it, immediately, as you need it done.

it's literally seizing the means of production.

New portfolio thing where I tried to adapt to that Mobile Game Aesthetic but then gave up halfway through #MastoArt

work, personal stuff 

If anyone knows of a non-soul-sucking company that is looking to hire a very multidisciplinary designer and developer please let me know. Otherwise, if you have tips for supporting a chronically ill partner I'll take it.

It'd odd how people are always like "if you want people to use gemini... you have to [do x]". people do use it!

have you ever thought about how John Cambell’s “hero’s journey” codifies a bunch of vaguely toxic hetero normative ideas and started a cult of mainstream writers and directors who believe this is the only possible way to tell stories? and it’s not even, particularly well recueved for what it oiginally set out to do: an academic model of indoeuropean folk tales.
it’s like we let the elon musk of storytelling dictate world narrative energy policy

@rysiek Congratulations on reaching a milestone!

As part of another @NGIZero project we've been working on ERIS - an encoding of data into small, encrypted blocks: purl.org/eris

This allows you to store content securely and censorship-resistant on IPFS or GNUNet or OpenDHT or anything really. The encoding and the identifier of the content becomes independent of the transport.

Might be applicable for #LibResilient. The motivation seems very similar.

“What’s in a package” 📦
👉🏼 hpc.guix.info/blog/2021/09/wha

This blog post was inspired by the sweat I put into packaging #PyTorch for #Guix and by a desire to understand what #pip & #CONDA were doing and to explain what’s at stake.

omigosh, Owl House season two is really good so far.

Honestly the more I learn about its ecosystem the more I just want to give in to Python's pull. Take the blue pill and live in blissful ignorance of all the much cooler languages that I learned.
...might be the right choice for uni at least tbh. It's not like writing my homework in Haskell is gonna get me extra credit. At least not at SZTE.

Talked with some math students last week and this was the first time I heard "have you registered for a Mathematic license?".

Gosh am I glad I could just download SymPy with Guix. Heck, I could patch a bug in nbconvert all on my own and build Jupyter against it in about 30 minutes. (which included running the full testsuites of a few major Python modules)

:oh_no: i noticed that Guix has the Elm compiler packaged.
Gonna have to resist diving into that. But that's nice to know, might try to make a frontend for 65cha02 with that. ....okay I will need a less contrived name for that project.

A test:
do you know the history of the pineapple fedi meme?

Okay, SymPy is actually pretty fun. There are some mathy things I don't like, like how symbol scoping is not quite clear.

Oh, I can't even assume the range of a variable. Okay then. I guess my expectations were too high.

Update: it turns out doing calculus in Coq is hard but I also suck at SymPy. Or maybe SymPy sucks.

How the hell do I add an assumption that a function is strictly increasing?
