I have given some serious consideration to leaving vulpine.club. It'll be the second one that I've considered that for. This time not because of stability issues, but.... this time because I feel somewhat awkward with the density of people adjacent to those who I had rocky friendships with.
I can't undo the past but I still feel like where I can fix physical things and such, but the relationships I broke in one place seem to have preemptively followed me somewhere else, physically from SW to PNW, Twitter to Fedi. It's rough seeing people and knowing they have me blocked on Twitter. Sometimes I don't even know why and I feel like it's inappropriate to ask.
There's a degree to which there feels like no way for me to tell those individuals (you know who you are) that I'm sorry for the rash decisions I made nearly a decade ago. I think I saw one of you on the bus a while back. I hope you're okay. One of your old friends asked about you and I had to say "I don't talk to [redacted] anymore, sorry."
Is that GPS disciplined clock still going?
and here I am, in an instance that feels a bit like I belong ( fox foxy fox) but also like I'm... tolerated? Like, a half step down from neutral with parts of the community.
This is pointed straight at places like TensorFlow.
There's a lot of TensorFlow that can't survive an upgrade. Google's own CoLab has this broken mixture of packages.
__You cannot run Google's own CoLab based notebooks in CoLab because they have too new a version of Python__.
I have some angry words for the Scientific Python community:
Support the latest version of the language or get out.
If, within a year of its release, you don't support the current POINT LEVEL release of Python, why? If you can't install Debian Stable (which already has OLD packages) and your stack, then you are doing a fundamental disservice to your users.
Python 3.8 is out, and yet I'm looking at a package that can't support anything over 3.5 published in the year of $DIETY 2020.
oh gosh it's 4AM
I should sleep.
I yelled on birdsite about a hydrographics shop not using HTTPS.
Well, using HTTPS but in the most Galactic Brain way possible: https://twitter.com/indrora/status/1217030413211721729
fuck computers. damn them all to hell.
How in the shit do I make MacOS understand that my keyboard sends f13-32. These make up a shockingly large amount of my workflow.
They exist. Apple even acknowledges this: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/appkit/nsevent/1535851-function-key_unicodes
And yet nothing can see them.
