also took this random picture of the building at Main and Hastings to try and show how it's changed from the ones I took earlier in the year when it was colder out

@Canageek forgot to post the picture of the actual fire engine

More fire trucks at Main and Hastings Things he gotten more and more sketchy with the warmer and drier weather

Before I have brought up my dislike of finding FOSS projects using Slack as a primary communication channel. I also want to express disdain for projects using Discord as well. But I would like to go one step further.

No FOSS project should make a proprietary service a primary communication channel, ever. It excludes those who do not want to risk their privacy being exposed, excludes those to do not user proprietary software, and does not fit with the principles of something like Mastodon.

every time your computer boots the processor wakes up thinking it's 1978 and the bootloader and kernel have to work together to gently coax it back to reality

Now playing with my Dad and brother.

Does anyone else here play ? Looking for people to play with.

I'm counting three fire engines and two of the little fire vans at Main and Hastings.

Plus one ambulance.

That fails on 3 different computers with 3 different OLEX2 versions. But the error is related to the basis set file, not MY file.
Except I'm on Windows. I love Linux subsystem for Windows. I can compile and stuff like a real programmer without using Cygwin, which never worked right.

Of course, the compile instructions are a bit unclear, but I think I have it working. Running the test suite now. Failed test 69, but passed the rest (so far).


So, having trouble with large Q-peaks near heavy (Ln, Au) metals in this series of structures despite no sign of notable twinning from ROTAX, RLATT, or Cell_NOW. Occurs in multiple isostructural crystals with different metals at the centre.
People on say it could be the data is really good, out to 0.5A or better, that the atoms could be looking less and less spherical/ellipsoidal. So they recommend using HARt via Olex2

evergreen reminder that if you're censoring something, use a solid rectangle larger than the text could be

(eg don't use any kind of brush or blur or distortion filter, just black/white/pink/whatever it out)

Daily reminder that you should not use Discord unless you like sending 100% identifiable analytics events for every single action you perfom in their app.

I saw AER: Memories of Old (or something like that) on Steam for like $6 and @DialMforMara is ENTRANCED. I feel bad that she can't run it in her laptop. (I told her to get a better one when she got it, and found her a better one for the same price....)

But anyway: cute game where you walk and fly around and look at cute animals and light platforming.

At work we have meters that need proving for government reasons. Our regular prover is out of service and we're talking about using a strap-on ultrasonic flowmeter to do this.

coworker: what do the regulations say about using a strap-on? can we use it with this orifice [meter]?

me: uh.. ๐Ÿ˜ถ
