Ja, och äldreomsorgen. Finns ingen anledning att det ska vara kommunberoende.

Vissa regioner har tydligen valt att göra det. Andra inte. Min gissning är att vi har ett beslut om förstatligande av sjukvården om ca 5 år.

I often try to argue this when it comes to data management in scientific computing, but am very seldom listened to.

Your typical sysadmin or ex researcher (most often physics) HPC staff might be the best ones out there for building and maintaining multi-PB storage systems, but maybe they should talk to someone who actually knows the field before they start making up metadata schemes and cataloguing.

You, a coward: Python doesn't have a switch statement

Me, a modern-day Galileo:

We're a few levels behind on mastodon, so there will be an upgrade shortly. Hopefully a quick and easy one with just a short downtime as services are restarted!

I like it when even Cloudflare starts to de-Google-ify.

"We recently migrated from Google's reCAPTCHA to the independent hCaptcha. It helps address a privacy concern inherent to relying on a Google service..."

Joined a union today, which I've been meaning to do since forever. It took a lady calling me from said union for me to sign up.

Don't be me. Join a union today.

@ashwinvis @fsnk Thank you, I'm clicking "suspend" as fast as I can and am pondering turning off public registration for a while.

I'm thinking about Zoom a lot these days, since I use it for teaching.

While it has clear problems, including privacy problems, a very common tip is to move to, of all things, Microsoft Teams.

I can't help but think that this is astroturfing from a monopoly power aimed at a (relatively) new and small company.

To be clear, something free/open source/self-hosted is def better than Zoom in almost all cases (BigBlueButton, Jitsi), and they deserve a lot of the shit they get, but just.. Microsoft?

Eventually there will be layers of indirection all the way down. And since inf+1=inf, off by one errors have been solved.

This was pretty much my entire workday, managed to fotce a few things done, but mostly just stared at it and got nothing out of it.

I have created a TUI for mastodon.

It's still an early release and far from done, but it has all the features to be quite functional. For now it's targeted at Linux.

You can find a binary under releases at Github.

My math-teaching brother's wish is that 2020 is the year everyone learns that "exponential" doesn't mean "very fast" it means "imperceptibly gradual and then suddenly overwhelming".

@zacchiro Welcome to 41! I've been trying it out for a couple of weeks now. Not sure I'm convinced yet, but the return policy is not great.

@liw I'm really tired of this at work. Lots of "I really like this technology, we should use it for something" with no reasoning behind what actual problem would be resolved. And when questioned, just respond with "but it's so great!".

The cat sniffed at the outstretched finger.

It was cold, hard and smelled of static.

With the mildest of shrugs, which for a feline is a tiny shuddering of the tail, the cat rubbed her face against it, and the rest of the hand for good measure.

She then twined around the crouching body the hand was part of, purring loudly. It was person-shaped enough.

The android had made a friend, and it felt...

It felt for the very first time.
