Also: If you're going to do research on functional programming or especially Haskell, you're not going to get around Simon Peyton Jones. Literally one third of my citations are from him.

Now as a companion to my thesis I have to do a presentation on it. My supervisor has recommended me a video on how to give a good science talk. Guess whom it's from.

Thesis: Done. It is on it's merry way to the examiner's office.

Mojang pestered me about the required change to a Microsoft account. So I gave in and tried to create a Microsoft account. After almost half an hour trying "you requested too many codes". How the fuck am I meant to migrate then?

Anybody wanting to read a thesis in german about fold/build fusion on non-deterministic code?

WOO! Thesis text finished! Only correcting grammar and spelling mistakes as well as final layouting are left.

What do you think the Fibonacci begins with?

lb: A good thread with almost all abbreviations and lingo

Pixdigit :verified: boosted


Content warning abbreviations can be a bit confusing, so here are the most common ones:

ph = physical health
mh = mental health
pol. = politics
adj. = adjacent
+ = positively framed
~ = neutrally/uncertaintly framed
- = negatively framed
begpost = crowdfunding request
:boost_ok: = Boosts are okay/appreciated
:birdsite: = Twitter, also known as "Birdsite"

If anyone can think of anything else, we'll happily boost it. But most others tend to be self-explanatory.

And today in awesome research titles:
"Worker/wrapper/makes it/faster"
"Work it, wrap it, fix it, fold it"

(Both about the worker/wrapper transformation)

TIL: if you play a video or sound clip and scroll away while it plays, it automatically opens a miniplayer so you don't have to search for the toot where the sounds are coming from.

Just learned about

I mean yes but wow, FOSS really is everywhere

Preliminary result of my benchmarking: The optimisation strategy I spend the last two month on developing, that required disabling a different optimisation, causes negligible improvements and makes things worse by a factor of 10.000 if you use lists somewhere in your program.
My thesis is going fine 🙂

Bandcamp changed their TOS. Unfortunately they don't say, what they changed. Anybody got any clues? Since the takeover from Epic I am highly suspicious.

I've been on masto quite a while now, so I think an is overdue.

Moin. I am a (soon to be finished) computer science student in Germany. My interests are and . I focus on 2D puzzlers but am open for more. I am also interested in human languages. Especially conlangs like . If able, I go climbing fairly regularly.

Sadly I am not very good at expressing myself so if I say something controversial, take it with a grain of salt.

"enthusiasts who celebrate characters"
I mean technically not wrong but certified oof.

Good job from the though

Sentence in my thesis:
"Developers usually know more about their code than the compiler" [citation needed]
