Link What I've been working on for the last couple months…»

Since before school ended, I’ve been working at this awesome startup. This is pretty much my dream job, getting to write code to do cool stuff all day.

Maybe less money than I’d be getting at Google or IBM, but there is something extraordinarily rewarding about the weight of responsibility being one of a tiny team gives you & knowing that one’s actions will have a big impact.

(and as one little shameless plug, if you’re interesting in learning Mandarin, you should definitely take a look at PenyoPal!

Link You’ve been suddenly sucked into an RPG. What are your stats?»

Sean: Lv.61 Dancer. Special trait: rides a unicorn.

Colonel Cheru: Lv.76 Nerd. Special trait: can breakdance.

Trevor: Lv.24 Clone. Special trait: can breakdance.

We shall be a glorious dancing team.

Katlynn: Lv.87 Sniper. Special trait: can come back to life.

Not bad. Dunno how I’d get to level 87 though my aim’s probably horrible |D

Krystina: Lv.64 Gambler. Special trait: never gets sick.

This is actually super accurate in that I really…never get sick. Doctors told me I have a mutant gene that fortifies my immune system.

Kayzig: Lv.35 Salaryman. Special trait: can sleep anywhere.

My face when I’ve been having super trouble sleeping lately to the point where I’ve considered looking for ways to medicate it and this is super appealing.

cries

docvalentine: Lv.96 Knight. Special trait: radioactive.

Sir Doc Valentine the Rad

heysawbones: Lv.78 Salaryman. Special trait: has psychokinetic powers.

Oh my god, this is everything I’ve ever wanted.

mayeko: Lv.23 Gypsy. Special trait: can control water.

I’m a nomad that controls water? So basically southern water tribe. Makes sense?

James: Lv.83 Nerd. Special trait: has ESP.

Well, that’s eerily accurate

Link vidir»

vidir allows editing of the contents of a directory in a text editor.

A slightly eccentric way to remove or rename files, admittedly, but I quite like it.

This is super-useful. Back when I used Emacs, I’d use dired-mode’s ability to edit directories when I need to do some fancy renaming stuff, but now that I’m using Vim, this is a life-saver.

Text Quality vs Quantity

A thought experiment: Assume that we have some metric of human quality — whatever you desire, be it IQ, kindness, creativity, or some more nebulous construction of what you think makes people “good”. If there was some method which would kill off half of humanity, but double this quantity value in all of the survivors, would it be worth it? What if it were 30% dead and the survivor quality sextupled? Is there any point were this tradeoff starts becoming worth it/not worth it?

(Personally, I’d be okay with 99% gone for epsilon increase, but that’s probably just the exhausted frustration talking).
