So I'm in a tough position, my hours got cut at work cause they decided they didn't want to pay out payroll for already scheduled shifts. I'm currently looking for a 3rd job (or replacement for the retail one) but in the meantime I really need some extra work.
I do have a commission queue, but if you have deadlines I can accommodate for it - especially if it's for a Christmas gift. I can fast track those :)
"Did it hurt?"
"Did what hurt?"
"When you fell from heaven."
"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."
Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.
In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.
Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:
Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔
huh, TIL that @congressedits is the "real" bot and not just a Twitter mirror, having been moved over here after the Twitter account was supended - see http://thewikipedian.net/2019/01/17/congressedits-twitter-suspended/
Writing a bot to visit artworks on amazon so that at least the ads that chase me from site to site are pleasant to look at.
OH: so many software engineers think their work is changing the world, but instead it’s only figuring out how to sell more ads.

in math, when you don’t know how to solve a problem, you turn it into a problem that you *can* solve
all I need to do is, to turn “being adult” into “cause mischief as a goose” and, we’ll be good
I always get a little giddy when I can expand my software development vocabulary, especially when I think I'll get a lot of use out of a term.
This time: "a Gettier case"
Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.
My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.
