@rek @neauoire Yeah, I would definitely rather not have the keel come loose 😆 . I have a significant amount of sailing experience through Cal Sailing Club, although all in the Bay (which is also what this boat would be for). Any clue how I could tell if the hull is in good shape without an actual haul-out? (I'm pretty sure the answer to that is no but I figured I would ask)
@neauoire Ah, thanks for the honest advice. What was the red flag for you?
@neauoire :) It's a 1975 Hunter 25'. I checked Yacht World, there's two comparable boats on there, one for around 8K and one for around 2,500 (which is also what these folks are asking for). It just got a new main sail, it needs a new anchor and eventually a new jib. It also comes with a slip at the Berkeley marina, which is normally quite hard to get.
@neauoire some acquaintances are moving back to Europe and selling their 25' sailboat. I'm going to go see it on Thursday, maybe have a quick sail around the bay. It wouldn't be a live-aboard for me, but I think it might be good experience, as I've never owned my own boat before. Do you have anything in particular you think I should contemplate/questions to ask myself or them?

pls let this be an elaborate joke
@Erjaeger Game of life is excellent. The most straight-forward implementation has some nice gotchya's and quick wins for efficiency, and you can dive as deep as you want into making it faster (there are some *insanely* fast life simulations out there). Also, in a similar vein, I had fun making a Second Order Cellular Automata tool last year: https://automata.jcmorrow.com/
@thomasorus This hit me hard, thanks for the share! Is there like a anti-tech-as-post-modernism-backlash reading list somewhere?

@electret That's awesome! Btw, I think your bandcamp link in your profile needs updating! 🎵
@smerp I think I know that spot! I framed your art today, it looks great!
