Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Took a leave of absence from work until Jan 5th, just so that way I don't get in trouble for being gone so long. It's a paid leave, so that's nice. I've been meaning to art more anyway, and I've got a TON of unwatched films in my collection, so I'll have plenty to do. I won't feel comfortable uploading videos until the Bell's Palsy clears up and I can talk normal again.

My Covid test results still haven't come back yet, so there's the slightest chance I did this all for nothing since I still haven't developed any symptoms yet. But my roommate totally lost his sense of taste and smell and has had other flu-like symptoms, so I don't know what else to do. (And his rapid test did come back as positive, so there's that.) It could be that I'm asymptomatic to something like that. That would be good for me, but I would still be a carrier, so I would still need to quarantine. I'mm also hold private movie screenings for a few of my local friends. We usually meet up every other week to watch anime, but seeing as how I need to quarantine, it's best we stream stuff instead.

EDIT:

The test results JUST came back. I do NOT have Covid! But my roommate is still showing symptoms, so it's probably still a good idea that I stay home until it clears up.

But this is good news, nonetheless!!!

That's awesome news so long as you stay well apart you should be okay and if you have to interact both of you should wear masks and gloves ^_^

That’s good to hear. Stay safe out there. I heard that there’s a new strain that’s supposed to be more contagious. Hopefully, the vaccine will work against it.

Oh hell. That's horrible. I hope you haven't gotten the infection, and in the event that you do, may you stay asymptomatic!


Well, yeah, unfortunately certain pieces of research suggest up to 25-30% of asymptomatic patients may still end up with cardiovascular damage (myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle, mostly). :cringe:

Dear Python,

I appreciate that you improved the documentation of a particular math-related Python core module so it can now at least be read by a mere mortal who does not have a PhD in mathematics.

What I appreciate somewhat less is that this rewrite of the documentation follows on a rewrite of the Python 2.7 version of the module in C for Python 3, and that this results in subtly broken code that is very hard to debug because the syntax that needs to be used has changed slightly from Python 2.7 in ways that (as is usual with Python modules) are not actually documented very well. Also, it would help if the rounding functions would not crap out over numbers in scientific notation, something that certainly did not happen in Python 2.7 (with the same module), and if the cause of that bug was not that the precision of numbers appears to get randomly set on different machines for a very unclear reason.

Sometime I wish I had a very large pet Python (of at least a few kilometres long) that I could sic on people who don't properly test their code (that is used in important modules). :harpy_liplick:

Guess who just spent 1.5 days debugging some ported code?

Even though my expertise of work is different, I feel you bro. Simple things can reach highest of complexity just because of technical issues that can be huge time eaters.

I'm on your side. This is very obnoxious situation (and also familiar for me, `cause I code a lot on js, and external libs sometimes carry nasty bugs inside, and project schedule is way too tight to fix them properly. So usually upcoming problems are solved via additional layers of crutch coding.Which is very meh)

And then - my own pain. I'm working over corporate wiki engine based on Vue and very specific localy developed backend framework. And this is plain gruelling and uninspiring as hell. Read from this table, drag to front with an AJAX, then plug into vue template. AARGHЪ!!! Bloody enterprise as it is. So I'm trying to save remains of my brain tinkering with small math projects on native JS(cellular automata, simplex linear optimization, comparison of different numerical integration methods and so on)

YouTube just removed my channel. I don’t make any videos on there, I’m just a commenter and viewer. So now I can’t watch anything on there. The reason they removed is because they think I posted “hateful comments” against a person. I’m not a malicious person, but there have been a few times where some people tend to get on my nerves so I thought the best way to get them to stop is to put them down. I’ve already sent an appeal to the YouTube team in hopes of getting my account back.

Also, I had a bit of frustrating day at work today, and I’m worried I might end up losing it if this keeps up, after doing so good there.

I just feel like I get frustrated too easily. And I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the workplace, so I tend to get a bit carried away and get mad if things don’t go smoothly or the way I want it to.

Same thing happened to me for the same reason last month. Apparently they are going on a banning spree. Bunch of people upset on the subreddit for youtube.

They wouldn't specify what comments qualified as hateful but I admit I curse too much. It's despicable that they don't give warnings or any half measures like just turning off a accounts ability to make comments or something reasonable.

I also do not post videos but I lost 100+ playlist with saved 7000+ videos. Movie trailers/clips I can find again not a issue but the loss of my music playlist stings bad as I don't keep up with band/album names and just save random songs/score tracks as I come across them.

Good luck on your appeal, mine was denied.

So the Dutch response to COVID-19 has been a messy shambles from the start: first denying the virus would come here despite keeping everything open with no checks whatsoever on incoming international travellers (these still mostly don't exist :facepalm: ), then being shocked a highly contagious virus shows up in our country and infects loads of people :rolleyes: , then having random, ill-thought out measures that keep changing the whole time, bad information (i.e. it's almost all in Dutch, like there are no foreigners here that don't speak the language), cops who refuse to enforce the rules :cringe: , useless sanctions that often don't get applied, are badly implemented, and cost people so little they shrug off the fines (Belgium has fines of up to 900 Euros, we are stuck at 95), elevating freedumb and total conspiracy stupidity to a really important thing that must be voiced, and I'm skipping things. They also keep claiming things are not very bad, while our death rate is one of the highest in Western Europe... :rolleyes:

Today they managed to top all that. We have elections upcoming, that won't be delayed because of the situation. So the ruling party has decided to relax a ton of rules, while the medical authorities are warning of wave 3...it's like they want things to go very wrong.

I...what? I so fucking hate living in this country at times. :irked:

Is "too many idiots" a valid reason for emigration?

Right now, I’ve had some people on Facebook giving me a hard time. I posted a comment on a Facebook post, and someone called me a dumbo. Of course I got mad and threatened to kill him, even on messenger. And then a few others came and insulted me for it, calling me a nerd.

That seems like a bit of an overreaction on your end tbh

Yeah, I think C.T. is at fault here. I mean, I wouldn't send death threats ever, especially not in response to a playground insult like "dumbo."
