A man who has big books… has a big… bookshelf.

My third year thermodynamics course opened with a similar quip by the lecturer. Entropy is actually depressing. You can’t fight it. You can’t not fight it. It just wins.

NSFW, but the next obvious thing to do is…

All people who think porn is bad are bad. They are projecting their own unhealthy suppressed sexualities onto others because of the shame they associate with their own sexuality

Thus I am concluding you are pro Russian and taking all opportunities to block all porn starring Ukranians. Which will be basically every site on the internet. A pity, since you seem to like it a lot.

Early computer aided art and programs I’ve written, dating back decades.

In the mid 1990s I used ImpulseTracker to create music. The music sucks. But losing the original source .IT files would be heartbreaking.

Likewise, my first programs, written as a child in MS DOS batch files circa 1991 – basic menu driven interfaces that facilitated launching my installed sharware… I don’t have the games the program points to anymore, but that isn’t the point ;)

Fourth panel. AI trained on all the above, floods it all with generated content rendering the signal-to-noise ratio too terrible to tolerate, even for corporations.

Plot twist. The raccoons are aliens in costume trying to learn about park rangers.

Lithium as well, if I recall correctly. Most lithium is theorized to date to the big bang. There are no current pathways to create it, and only pathways that destroy it.

Most helium also dates to big bang, but some was created through fusion or alpha decay.

I may have been born under a rock, but does Qt have java capabilities? Wonder why GTK is listed but not Qt. Unless I’m like two decades out of the loop, which is possible :)

Building a toolkit from first principles is fun, I’ll admit.

I toyed with using libxcb and ctypes to make a pure python GUI toolkit once. Got as far as rendering on a screen and and event loop. Then got bored when I realized how much work it was going to be. I suppose someone could do the same with libwayland :)

Oh hell no. I can’t stand java paradigms haha. Only ever had to write one production java program and that was enough. Wish them luck though – the rising tide floats all boats and such, particularly in open source :)

I spent an hour today trying to find a real source for this quote, often misattributed to Churchill. And failed. Found some sources saying it predates Churchill, but no direct references. Seems an adage that is quite old though.

In Canada, it might work. There was a court case where an airline had to honour its chatbot.

We called it “Beetle Bump” but same thing.

After the release of the redesign, it sort of stopped. Only really made sense for the classic version.

Out of curiosity, how is this ratio relative to some place like North Korea?

No. I was pumping socialism as an alternative to birth lottery. Enjoy your day :)

It’s a specialized scientific equipment business. I build some equipment, do some customization and repairs on their party equipment, loan other equipment, train users… A high capital business where I wagered everything on my own success. It was six months between my first two customers, and now I average about six hours.

No Mary Kay ponzi shit.

E: should add, I started it because my previous employer owned the intellectual property on my prior device. I wanted to own my future work. Seizing the means of production (by quitting and going solo).
