@hallo is mcnaught ok? Ping on either IPv4 or IPv6 gives me 'destination unreachable'

Who were talking about Bret Victor on here recently? @rysiek / @zens / ...?

You might find (and pulling the thread from there) interesting, though many of those projects seem to have gotten tangled up in implementation details pretty quickly...

No idea who made this, but they are obviously a genius.

The (printed!) book I learned my first steps on Linux from - and more importantly - that motivated me to stick with it when starting out.

I think I can honestly say this changed my life. Thanks, Anne, where-ever you are.

The 'pen and string' method for drawing ellipses has been known since the fifth century - I wonder what advantage the device has over this approach?

Found this device to draw ellipses in the Cuypershuis museum in Roermond.

Ellipses are so cool.

software dev tip 

If I feel I'm not "done" with a programming task at the end of my work day, I leave myself detailed notes on what to do the next morning. Like: the next ~3 things I think I am going to need to do (update function X, run the tests, investigate function Y if the tests fail, etc). I've attached this morning's notes-to-myself.

Basically this lets me just "follow orders" at the start of my work day and ease my brain back into a place where I can start thinking at 100%

OK, it's a little easier when you agree with that opinion on X, but in general I'm not a fan of this pattern ;)

Here's my opinion on X, which is obviously superior to yours.

Now don't talk about X here!

(I don't *actually* play keys, I just use it to experiment/play with harmonies and such, which is why the obviously-not-ideal arrangement in the photo works for me ;) )

Quite literally "dusted off" my KeyStation today. Wanted to use a app with an app together, so tried .

While I haven't dug into the technical trade-offs that must be there, this was super easy/convenient! Impressed so far!

the fact that the ATX standard has 12V is really handy in that it makes it easy to replace the PC Speaker in your computer with a real actual car horn

Rather minimalist ir-landscapes which might look good as wallpapers. Different hues and compositions. Have fun. #wallpaper #photography #infrared

StackOverflow got acquired.

That doesn't have to be bad, but should also be a reminder that centralized systems like that *can* be bought - and that may or may not be in the interest of the users/contributors...

Puzzle of the day:

'convert' () will honor the SVG "crispEdges" shape-rendering attribute to selectively turn off anti-aliasing \o/

Unless you have on the path /o\

If you have Inkscape on the path, it will use that for the conversion, and Inkscape doesn't honor the "crispEdges".

We are looking for software developers!

If you live in or would like to relocate to Germany, it might be for you.

We do mostly JS w/ types and Java but also a lot of other things.

Eunoia, a collection of 500+ untranslatable words in 70 languages by I love the German ones so much because of the way German language works. And I admit that there are some French ones I've never heard in my life ^^
