Bela Dixit is talking about the upgrades to the Finnish Metsahovi radio telescope. Many similarities to our upgrade, but for a single dish system.

Very interesting couple of slides from the NOEMA presentation: compared to 20 years ago, only 4 sub-millimeter arrays remain.

@GottaLaff not sure how the line of questioning that demonstrates “Trump organization surely employs a lots of crooks” can go well with the Jury…

The IRAM 30m was inaugurated 40 years ago! 6000h/year of observing time!

So, it’s time for an upgrade…

Miguel Sánchez-Portal said that they’ve been closed for 11 months for this upgrade, plus 2-3 months for the surface repainting.

Cristina Garcia Miro now bringing us the late start, hectic present, and promising future of radio astronomy in Spain.

Radio Astronomy in Spain started with the host-country time observations from Riu et al. (University of Barcelona) of a radio source occulted by the moon.

Plan B: will not be live tooting, but batch tooting… I’ll still hope you’ll find it useful!

I’ll try to be life-tooting from today: wish me luck!

Ha aparecido por mi casa una Wii Fit, qué pena que solo funciona con la Wii. No sé si nadie la querrá, aún se sigue usando la Wii?

@carola si mal no recuerdo, sirve para la Wii U también… y no sé si para la Nintendo switch.

@runjaj X-Wing y TIE Fighter eran geniales… lástima que eran solo para PC en mi época.

Quick ranking of the new iPad Pro set in terms of “ooh, this is notably better than the thing that came before”

  1. Magic Keyboard - markedly better…like really better

  2. iPad Pro - OLED is slick

  3. Pencil Pro - squeeze to bring up markup tools is cool, but basically the same otherwise so far

@juandesant@astrodon.social avatar

@matt what about the dynamic shadows? Those look helpful and neat…

juandesant,
@juandesant@astrodon.social avatar

@matt when you hover on an application using PencilKit, a shadow is digitally formed that reflects both the tool and its orientation on M4 iPad Pro… see for instance https://mastodon.social/@b3ll/112453001360323961

I think there is a lot of truth to this: before algorithms, we depended on serendipity and curation, and both meant interacting with humans. The more the algorithm got in, the less space for fun, and the more incentive to gaming the algorithms.

Linux question:

In bash, I can write:
(cd .. && ls)
and it will run "ls" in the parent directory, but after the command executes I will not have CD'd. The CD is confined in the subshell in the ().

If I try this same command in the alternate shell "fish", it prints the error "command substitutions not allowed here" and nothing is executed. Is there a fish equivalent of "run this single line of commands in a rubber-room subshell whose variables and pwd do not escape"?

juandesant,
@juandesant@astrodon.social avatar

@mcc just tested in iSH after installing fish with apk add fish:

localhost:~# fish -c "ls"  
juandesant.rss  
localhost:~# fish -c "echo $(fish -c ls)"  
juandesant.rss  
localhost:~# fish -c "$(fish -c ls)"  
fish: Unknown command: juandesant.rss  
fish:   
juandesant.rss  

juandesant.rss is the only file in that directory.

Apple has accomplished one thing with the Files app: it’s made people a lot less critical of the Finder.

@dustinrue @drdrang @viticci and I just learned that such thing exists already… since Mac OS X Lion (10.7)!
