Nel 2011 conobbi un ragazzo che stava facendo la tesi alla Bocconi. Non conosceva il significato dell'acronimo BRICS. Glielo spiegai io che non ho mai studiato una minchia di economia.
A young relative of mine has classmates that are kind of obsessed with #BrawlStars. From a cursory read of Wikipedia, it seems to be your typical #freeToPlay/#freemium #MOBA. Does anybody have more information about it? Anything to be wary of? Ads? Invasive app? Gambling/loot boxes mechanics?

Italian physician, naturalist, biologist & poet Francesco Redi died #OTD in 1697.
A rationalist of his time, he was a critic of spontaneous generation. He disproved that vipers drink wine & could break glasses, and that their venom was poisonous when ingested. He correctly observed that snake venoms were produced from the fangs, not the gallbladder, as was believed. He was also the first to recognize and correctly describe details of about 180 parasites. via @wikipedia

And...apparently we booked (pre-ordered) an Ami... 😍🚙
I really wanted to get rid of my old car, which I almost never use and buy a small electric something for when my bike is not enough.
Husband booked an Ami for me! 😍

If you’re the kind of person who can’t handle compromise with people of different views from your own, you are an authoritarian—no matter how progressive you think you are.
From what I gather the very first PR coup that C++ has achieved in the last 12 years is Joe Biden trying to discourage people from using it
Chrome one year ago was basically everything I wanted out of a web browser, Chrome eight months ago was what I wanted out of a web browser but it's trying to spy on you unless you click many settings on every profile, Chrome four months ago worked for me but I didn't like the interface anymore, Chrome today I don't like the interface and also it seems to fairly frequently crash so I keep losing my arrangements of tabs.
"La startup ha ideato un sistema che trasforma i filtri usati delle sigarette in acetato di cellulosa, per poi dar vita a oggetti di uso comune come montature di occhiali e manici di ombrello. In un solo anno di attività, Re-cig ha dato nuova vita a 2 milioni di mozziconi di sigarette, un bel traguardo considerando che questi ultimi rappresentano il 40% dei rifiuti nel Mar Mediterraneo."
if you're eepy and you know it, take a nap!
The HDMI Forum rejected AMD's open source HDMI 2.1 implementation https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2024/02/the-hdmi-forum-rejected-amds-open-source-hdmi-21-implementation/
Today I'm annoyed about Unix named pipes.
Specifically, the way that trying to open one blocks in the open(2) call until something opens the other end. It's too all-or-nothing: if the other process never started up for some reason, you just sit there, still blocking in open().
I want a way to convert 'attempted open of a named pipe' into a thing I can add to a select() or poll(), so I can wait for that or some other event, whichever comes first. And then cancel the open attempt, if need be.
I want to make a new dogs head hammer, but that needs a hammer eye drift. The downside of being able to make tools is that you're always making tools 🙄😅
OMFG. "Exxon CEO blames the public for failure to fix #climate change."
Could there be a more stunning example of hypocrisy?
I have 65 folders of ~1,800 high resolution JPGs per folder that I need to convert into 65 single PDFs, keeping the images in sequence. Don't have an Adobe subscription & probably too large for IlovePDF.com and similar free sites.
All advice welcome!
My wife is furious with me.
I was trying to trim my eyebrows with a hair trimmer, and accidentally shaved off the middle of my left eyebrow. She, thankfully, found eyebrow powder to fill it in.
Are there any Australians reading this and could you let me know whether "spruiked" is Aussie slang or just an amazing misspelling of… something
you must be THIS TALL to use floating-point equality checks
INFO: May 12th, 2807. ACADEMIA - LUSITÂNIA. 2 Panels Panel 1: A top view of a plaza, surrounded by white buildings. A man goes accross an ornamented stone gate. On the foreground, there's a clock tower, at the top of which a flag waves in the wind. Panel 2: Eurico goes across the plaza and under a row of trees.
The Foreigner. Like a painting where you can see the brushstrokes. His face is covered by a red mask with a black cross over it. Strangely angelic.
4 Panels. Panel 1: The Foreigner is looking towards the ocean, with his desluso mask on. Further, the box and the meditan contents, still open and slightly spread out. Filipa (off panel): Who are you? Where did you get all this meditan shit and that FORMER spaniard? Panel 2: Ângela stands in front of the ocean, looking back at Filipa. Behind her, the dark ocean, the clouds and the moon's reflection on the water. Ângela: My name is Ângela, Sinistra SECUNDUM PRAXIS. I'm on my second year of med school and I work at the Academia's morgue. I have access to the storage facilities. Panel 3: Ângela looks at her hands, which display wounds again. Filipa is behind her, holding the shotgun. It's windy. Filipa: Oh yeah? And what do you do at the morgue? Ângela: I clean and reconfigure corpses. Filipa: Simplify that for me, will you? Ângela: I rewire their neural pathways so they're easy to control in battle. Panel 4: A close up of Filipa's face. We can see her squinting behind the mask.
