Continuing on from 's thread: I started Mr. Robot back when it first came out. I *adored* the pilot, but didn't enjoy the rest of Season 1 as much. I never latched on to Season 2. Should I give it another shot?
I didn't enjoy season 2 as much when watching for the first time, but felt that it and season 1 were better when rewatching. I loved the show though.
I'm looking to build a web app to deploy a tiny python script I wrote. I have nearly 0 experience with web dev. At the moment I would like to implement it without using a framework like flask or django. I've heard of the websockets / asyncio packages, does anyone have references to guides or tutorials on this subject?
You could look into python anywhere, their free tier should let you run a short script once a day. They also support a very easy integration with flask. I'd recommend doing one of their tutorials if you're interested.
Yes! I'm there now. Very happy with the new place. Working on furnishing it now.
Congratulations! Hope you're enjoying the new place.
I am watching Better Call Saul, really good acting. I've also enjoyed watching Westworld and the Handmaids Tale. Westworld's first season is by far the best, I think they really dropped the ball with the third one.
I had to stop watching Westworld season three. Shame. I thought they had good ideas, good effects, good cinematography, good actors... It just did not come together well and lost the magic season one had.
Nice! I plan on getting a hot tub in the not-to-distant future. No wife yet though, but one day.
Quiet days of rest and reflection should be mandated for our wellbeing. Just here, relaxing on Sunday, slowing right down. Hoping you are all enjoying your day!
I'm playing on my phone in the hot tub while my wife is making burgers. About as relaxed as can be right now. :)
wooow that's quite amazing actually
Thanks. I was surprised it worked as well as it did. I'm actually having more trouble separating male from female writers. I guess Trump may be more different from others than male writers are from female. (Or my model just needs more work)
Old style tape recorder? :)
That's a really great idea! I could transcribe it in the morning (I prefer having a searchable dream journal) :)
Entertaining read - you could now build an adversarial system to spout trumpisms!
Thanks! I think adversarial generators are really interesting. I'd like to learn enough to put one together some day.
Observing the future to "collapse its associated wave function" and select a specific outcome to control future events? That could be a nice pitch for a movie or a TV show. Or a book. Maybe it has been done... But indeed, space, time, causality, emergence, quantum behavior, etc, are all part of a big puzzle that physicists are trying to solve while having been starved for the past decades of new/unexpected experimental data. It is a... Complicated field (duh).
I thought this is where they were going with Devs (spoilers) - they have a machine that can see the past or future but employees are forbidden from looking at the future. I thought the reason would be that looking at the future determines it, but they didn't really explore that.
What are you current projects?
I recently setup - an idea I had for competitive rephrasing. Now I'm working on a machine learning model to differentiate male from female writers (building on some success I had with a model to identify Donald Trump -
It's moving day! Not looking forward to the move itself but excited for the new place.
Think how relieved you'll feel when it's done! Exciting!
If anyone has 5 minutes to spare I would appreciate some feedback on the layout of my 'open notes' section of my new homepage. I've created 2 entries so far and plan to publish all my notes over time.
Seems a bit off on mobile. I noticed a link extended past the white bounding box and, as I think about it, I wonder why that white box isn't the whole page.
Getting back into Age of Empires 2 here lately. Crazy how well this game held up over the years. I think it has a growing playerbase right now? Not sure.
One thing I found frustrating with AOE2 was managing the civilization as it got bigger. I'd be trying to manage resources or big armies while little forces kept raiding me. Is there an "archon" mode where multiple control the same civ?
Any fans of the Dresden Files on here? (Please don't spoil Peace Talks... I'm re-reading the whole series before I get to it, aiming to be done around the time Battle Ground comes out)
I like those books! Your post just minded me that the new one is out. It's been a while! I know what I'll be reading this weekend though.
Totally agree (about the "cutting down" bit) - but I'm curious about what you find hard about being veggie? I suppose I've been doing it so long I don't notice any more - but I'm quite rare [see what I did there] in that I'm a vegetarian who once upon a time quite liked meat. I gave it up purely for the hell of it and haven't really ever looked back.
Partly, I just like the taste of meat and don't really feel satiated without eating it. Another part is that so many foods have meat it's natural to eat it at restaurants, with friends and family, or at home.
