groundbreaking research unearths new evidence to support the revolutionary claim that "essentially, you don't need to be an asshole to be funny"

now the researchers are investigating whether the conjecture "and being an asshole doesn't improve your jokes either" is true, but they predict it is, and point to the heaps of empirical data that already supports the claim

quick psa about my emoji usage
💙 : friendly, not romantic
❤ : probably romantic
so, if I toot a blue heart at you, it's not intended as romantic affection. I thought I should clarify that, since some people might feel uncomfortable with hearts being thrown at them.

Please stop using the word "punk" as if it meant "theme".

I don't understand the fascination with Nintendo's new Game and Watch console. Yes, it can be programmed. Just like every single handheld console out there, including a large number of consoles that were made to be programmed by their users, have SDK released, are orders of magnitude cheaper, have better hardware and look nicer.

Currently there is a large #climate lawsuit happening against #shell. 17k plaintiffs + an several environmental NGOs against want to force shell to reduce co2 emissions via the dutch legal system (shell is a dutch company).

The opening proceedings are happening this week with other proceedings happening later this month.

HP... Storytime!

Not only printers. HP is on top of my do-not-buy list. No firmware updates without contract is the top reason.

I bought a vpn router once and it handed out "hp.com" as search domain via dhcp. And this was not configurable.

I got through their support stages via email. They even fixed the firmware. But then I couldn't download it, because I don't have a support contract.

Ah and there is a HP scanner which has a firmware with a broken smtp authentication, so it can send scans via email only without auth... oh and ssl is broken too. There is actually an update, but the firmware upload page requires an internet explorer (the scanner is from 2019 btw.).

Well, I got an internet explorer connected, after the fw upload, it takes 5 min an the scanner display shows: "firmare update is fail" and reboots.

I tried to open a ticket, but I can't because I don't have a support contract...

I also owned an HP MicroServer and even payed for the iLO License. But that doesn't mean I would get firmare updates... I only get the function to update the bios firmware, not the right to download a firmware itself. That's still behind the support contract.

I'm fed up with them.

nevermind, apparently i just failed at writing a cartesian product function. it also blows up in Haskell, but slower. let's do try it correctly this time.

guess i'll try it in Haskell. GHC is hopefully smart enough. maybe.

Show thread

it's not like i'm proving anything even, i'm just using Vect to generalize over homogenous tuples. so a smart compiles would just emit int[3] in my case. but i guess it has to use a linked list?? because it's not smart enough to know that the length is constant?
hmmm. could i dive into the compiler and speed it up???

Show thread

oh damn, wait, is it because i'm using Vect? :oh_no: please, let me use Vect. pls.

hmm. idris2 does not handle my advent of code solution very well. OOM on part 2.

Tiny feral kitten update: it's her shed now. She's also prepared to go back to sleep if she wakes up and notices me. Still edgy if I get too close, but if I keep to the correct distance, we're fine.

The first thing you notice after discovering some content on #lbry is that the #science tag there was totally taken over by (literally!) flat-earthers and alt-med 😂 🤦‍♂️
