Found this one with googling
The one in this picture was what I came up with (only I think I turned left, my bunny is no Zoolander). I was too lazy to calculate how many iterations it would take so I just put an arbitrarily large number in the loop though.
If you’re playing Advent of Code, we have a private leaderboard that SuperPichu created last year. The join code is
Has anyone here worked with Julia? It seems like it combines most of the syntax of Python with a few of the good features of Matlab, while supposedly having similar performance to C. I’ve only started messing with it today so I’ll see if the shine wears off.
I started reading a little bit about Julia. One of its developers gave a talk at work about it. Right now it doesn’t solve a problem I have, so I didn’t dive in.
I was annoyed by indexing-starts-at-1 for about ten minutes.
Yeah the arrays thing bothers me but it seems to be pretty standard with languages based around matrices, like matlab and scilab. What really bothers me from reading the docs is that instead of defining a method within a class, you define the method externally and restrict the first argument to the class you made. So instead of
class MyClass: def myMethod(self): pass
You write something like
function myMethod(x::MyClass) whatever end struct MyClass() whatever end
In other news, the more I use Python the more I love its syntax. I made a quick class for Bezier curves and decided to just use
__getitem__ to pass the parameter t so you can slice with
start:stop:step syntax. This lets you sample the curve however you want, or use the default step value and intelligent start/stop limits along with tuple unpacking to plot the whole thing in one go:
bez = Bezier(xcoords, ycoords) plt.plot(*bez[:])
I’m still not sure if I think using
__getitem__ like that is a great idea or a terrible one.

Fact 1: We played Paris Connection several times this weekend and kept saying, “this would be better if setup were faster.”
Fact 2: I needed to practice front-end web dev stuff.
Slack is pulling the plug on irc support next week. I like having a curses interface to slack. I’m currently using emacs’s erc as my irc client.
Down the rabbit hole:
emacs-slackexists, but has a bunch of dependencies, has an extraordinarily clunky process for getting oauth2 tokens, and mostly doesn’t work.
slack-termexists and works but is ugly.
libpurplebuild to which you can build
slack-libpurple. This actually worked painlessly, albeit with missing documentation for actually getting started using it.
bitlbeeto log in to slack accounts.
ercto connect to localhost. For some reason, localhost is bad but 127.0.0.1 is fine.
bitlbeeto add the proper channels corresponding to slack channels. Success and goodnight!
Have you tried Finch, which is the terminal version of Pidgin?
Finch is trying too hard to be Pidgin. Why do Finch and slack-term love box drawing so much? Every row, column, and character is precious!
Bitlbee is pretty great so far. It holds all the configuration state, leaving the irc client configuration to a minimum.
So, I discovered this game on Steam recently.
I’d love to see someone here do a Let’s Play on it to test whether its accurate or full of crap.
