Wow it looks like CloudFlare's new CAPTCHA both requires Javascript 100% and requires disabled people to sign up and set a browser cookie. And signing up requires solving a CAPTCHA. So fuck disabled people I guess.

Which of the following best describes how you think of yourself?

@operand oof, thanks for the warning. it is indeed cursed and must be abolished

@faho Ah, sorry for misunderstanding your problem. In fact, I'm in the Theoretical Computer Science group of the university, so feel free to run away from any and all of my suggestions! :)

@faho Is this a correct understanding of your problem: you have a regex and a string, and you want to know a (minimal?) set of insertions and deletions in the string to make it match the regex.

I know solutions to the above exist for context-free grammars (e.g. error-correcting parser combinators), so one approach would be to write a context-free grammar for your regex, then run an error-correcting parser.

@operand hmm, i'm now 75% convinced to actually switch my locale to en_BE. if it had ISO 8601 date format, then 99% convinced

It's actually called ÜFI. The UEFI spelling is just to be ASCII compatible

With some tweaks to the sensitivity, you can talk over the transmission and it will still arrive intact!

Update on FFT shenanigans: I can now send data through audio. (Frequency-shift keyed Manchester code: low-high is 1, high-low is 0. In the spectrogram, the range for low and high data is marked by the background colours. The green bar on the left indicates the pre-clock interval, the red bar is waiting for the clock and the blue bar is the bit being received.)

morning, this wee guy was born last night and he is extremely confident

This is what you get when you FFT the first couple of kilobytes of the pdflatex executable.

There's a whole class of weird US court cases against inanimate objects:

United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins
United States v One Solid Gold Object In The Form Of A Rooster

I decided to see what a neural net would make of them.

Mastodon is a server for a federated social network: everyone can run a server if they want to, including me. So this is a Mastodon server for me (Vierkantor) and my friends.
