I just completed "Operation Order" - Day 18 - Advent of Code 2020 My solution was again a lot of regex and purrr. {stringr} and {purrr} are my goto packages. github.com/RMHogervorst/advent

I'm halfway in 'attack surface' (the third little brother book) by @pluralistic and I love it! Amber Bensen is perfect for the voice of Masha. Highly recommend it!

I backed Cory's kickstarter for the audiobook and the book is soo nice. Had to find an audioplayer and found github.com/PaulWoitaschek/Voic . soo two recommendations for me today!

Ouch, there must be a PR open somewhere to change this. What are you using for multiprocess?

Finally made a new post for
: 'Your users are not idiots, (maybe you did not design it well enough)' Where I ruminate on designing software that doesn't work for people. notes.rmhogervorst.nl/post/202

I just saw a toot with an image that wouldn't load due to a choppy wifi connection. Luckily, the author had added a description of the image, so could still get the gist of it.

Which is to say, again: improving UX for the visually impaired helps a larger group than you might think.

@JayVii_de jamovi is also an excellent tool. Clicky GUI like spss, but R underneath.

@gerald_leppert @rstats@gup.pe ah yes this speeds up matrix calculations significantly

Hi @gerald_leppert , I'm not sure I understand your question? There is this taskview about parallel computing cran.r-project.org/web/views/H.
But I believe the Microsoft r version is different. But I often use parallel @rstats@gup.pe . Furrr is an amazing framework it combines futures and purrr. And most of the machine learning has parallel options.

I absolutely love the latest series of posts by @juliasilge about tidy machine learning! They contain both video and the text. Now diving into the one about hyperparameter tuning juliasilge.com/blog/sf-trees-r

@JayVii_de I would be very interested in your setup! What are your goals?

@maloki I was in the social sciences before and I find it maddening to see these computer science papers without any ethical considerations. You cannot start social research without ethical board approval. Cs: yolo let's scrape a network and and dump it online.

On Scraping Mastodon:

If they hadn't misunderstood the difference between a name of a field and the social and cultural implications of it's usage, this paper wouldn't have been written.
