Yay, I now have running on a PYNQ-Z1 FPGA board. It has a 650MHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 with 512MB RAM. That is not enough memory to run though.

In a pure functional language, all constructs can be expressed as anonymous functions ("lambda functions"). I wrote an article "Everything is a function" that explains how this works.

Holy shit, the EU just created a standard that tells you how (un)repairable products are, from A (best) to E (worst).

"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude."

Hey, if anybody out there in the Fediverse is looking for a 2yr post-doctoral fellowship in philosophy or history of biology with my group in delightful francophone Belgium, drop me a DM or send me an e-mail! UCLouvain will be opening up a call over the summer, at which my center has been pretty successful in the past. Boost away if someone in your network might be interested! :BoostOkay: #philosophy #philsci #histsci

Hey fediverse!

I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.

I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.

My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.

Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.

Last night there was the most beautiful sunset, and I rested at the water's edge and let the sound of lapping water and the evening glow bathe me. Somehow it washed all the struggle of the day away and was a little big perfect.
