awful joke 

it's fucking rude.

hold out your hand, palm first. Show the dog you don't have anything, and that they can sniff you.

Don't put your hand over their head, they don't know what you're going to do and their ears are soft.

look at the owner, and then approach if they say it's okay. they'll know best

actually, new law

if you whistle at someone's dog who's not yours, people catcall you all day

we actually taught Kali to bark on command, and we're getting it up to a good enough level so she'll bark at these fucks

what the fuck is that noise, btw

I don't gesture to your family to come over, BECAUSE IT'D BE FUCKING WEIRD

stay away from my dog

it's amazing the amount of people who ask me if my dog's being a good girl

she's bein a wee shite, as always, and you made it worse when you clicked at her you fuck

It's like waiting for a fucking roulette wheel to stop turning so I can praise it or not

>Holds Kali's lick-mat, covered in nat yogurt.

"Kali, Sit"

Kali sits. Then down. Then barks. Then holds a paw. Repeats.

jesus fuck if neural nets were animals they'd be dogs

javascript is what happens when you make a programming language with the vagueness and shapelessness of a real language

Rewriting a lot of my decision tree code after benchmarking Vec<Vec<T>> against an approach using multiple Vec<T>.

And now I'm rewriting what was a custom CSV importer, and realising a lot of it could just use the default CSV reader.

But like, I have a sense of pride that the whole tree uses a few libraries to generate random numbers, fnv, and regex and that's basically it?

work is deciding on a style guide for python

it's like when you ask your partner where they want to go for dinner

they don't care, but they don't want that one

My opinion on working from home has changed since I went remote.

Beforehand I was thinking about how it'd impact my working.

Afterwards I lost a lot of motivation to work because being further away made the problems with the department more visible.

computer programming is an art that was pioneered by women, and the fact that men have swooped in and claimed it as their own and used it to advance misogyny and sexism is an absolute travesty

Eden boosted

we need to reclaim programming as something for everyone

we need to reclaim it as a thing to use for fun and as a personal tool, instead of something you learn for careers to impress corporations

computer programming should be a place where misogyny, sexism, corporations, and capitalism don't belong
