Hi! I'm Niklas, an open-minded and curious computer science student at KIT in Germany.

Nick Silvestri I'm jealous you have the opportunity to use EO at all! Admittedly, I haven't tried to find people to speak it with, but if I did I'd have a lot more motivation to continue studying it.
💩 Niklas Maybe you could use Meetup or a similar service to find groups of people speaking it in your area?
🧉 Martin It's definitely a little surreal to be using Esperanto so often :) Glad to find at least one other person here with a /now. Grillradar is a cool idea, and I really like the design.
💩 Niklas Haha, thank you! I was actually surprised to see how many people were using now pages already. Nowadays, I find one almost more often than not when stumbling upon a random personal website.
🧉 Martin Finally updated my /now page. Anyone else have one? If so, share! :) martinrue.com/now
💩 Niklas The short story you're sharing on your now page sounds like you're living the dream! :) Glad you can explore new places and learn new languages. Here's my now page, that I actually should update again: niklasbuehler.com/...
Miso So I went ahead and actually downloaded the game from - it's pretty simple and addictive!
💩 Niklas Nice! :) I have only played the "analog" version this far, although I think the digital one is real eye candy!
Miso I didn't know about this game, but it seems simple and fun. I'll look it up!
💩 Niklas It's pretty fun and the obvious advantage is that it can be played alone and everywhere with almost no equipment.
💩 Niklas Alone at home and bored? I've written a manual for Donsol, an ASPRDC (analog single player roguelike dungeon crawler, haha) which can be played with only a regular deck of cards (+ pen and paper probably). Check it out here: niklasbuehler.com/...

✨ Jacoby I like manuelmoreale.com and patrickrhone.net.
💩 Niklas Thanks for the recommendations! I'll check them out -- they do look intriguing. :) Also really fascinating that so many people have now-pages already.
Miso Haha that's an awesome idea. Somehow, I'm only listening to the same 10 tracks on Spotify.
💩 Niklas Thanks! :) At first I wanted to do Spo_diff_y, a program that diffs (en.wikipedia.org/w...) your favorite artists against those of your friends, but that'd require a way bigger architecture/protocols for collecting the different accounts data, so I started with Judgify haha.
💩 Niklas So today I spent a few hours creating a web app that shows you how basic your taste in music is: niklasbuehler.gith...
Miso Haha that's an awesome idea. Somehow, I'm only listening to the same 10 tracks on Spotify.
🥝 Mr Thanks, it seems they own at least one of the well known techniques. Interesting that everyone seems to know it. Makes you wonder if companies are spending a lot of time working around the patent since google hasn't committed it being open.
💩 Niklas I don't think any of these can or will really be enforced (how would you check or even prove that other companies use dropout in their proprietory code?), but it's just ridiculous to me how those companies could even get those patents.
🦝 Wojciech The NextCloud is at home (therefore, the backup at uni is in a different location, physically, so, bonus points :D). We have a public IP (it was free and I think we didn't even have to ask), so it is accessible from the internet. (The "server" is a budget Ryzen 3 based PC sitting in a wardrobe, because Ryzens are quite power efficient.)
💩 Niklas Oh wow! I must say, I'm pretty impressed by your setup, keep going. :)
🦝 Wojciech I keep my important data on my personal NextCloud, which is on a RAID1 (with an SSD cache), and then every week a backup is made using borgbackup, stored on a server at my university, which also has RAID1. The backup is encrypted so I don't worry about other people accessing it.
💩 Niklas That sounds very reasonable, thumbs up! :) Are you running the NextCloud server from your home/university and if from home, is it accessible (to you) from the internet?
🥝 Mr Do they hold "a" patent on those? Is it possible that it's for a very specific use case? Do you have the patent numbers? Would be curious to see.
💩 Niklas Yes sure, here are the numbers: US9406017B2, US9715642B2 and US7747070B2 in respective order. :)
💩 Niklas I just found out that not only does Google hold the patent on dropout in neural networks, but also on processing images using deep neural networks and Microsoft even holds the patent to train ConvNets on GPUs. What the hell is wrong with the patent office?!
🥝 Mr Do they hold "a" patent on those? Is it possible that it's for a very specific use case? Do you have the patent numbers? Would be curious to see.
🥝 Mr All icloud data is encrypted in transit and on disc with icloud. It's also encrypted on device itself so i really don't have any concerns about that. It's been a pain to encrypt everything I own over the past couple years... It's nice that apple just encrypted everything without user intervention. Most people don't even know.
💩 Niklas Damn, that actually sounds pretty cool. Still, Apple seems to be in a position that would allow them to undermine the encryption...
👨🏻‍💻 Moroni I'm gonna build my own data center. haha
💩 Niklas And that's on sunk cost fallacy, haha :)
