      Ground coffee can be stored in the freezer
      I don’t know why I would ever do that instead of just keeping it in my pantry, but there

        You can but imo only "once". Freezing and thawing even a little bit will get moisture inside and muck things up. Thats the only issue, otherwise the freezer is a god damn time machine.

      Some mikmaq and that russians used to say ov instead of on (he) which I kinda doubt, because greek n is ν and russians writing system is related to the greek one.

      Extremely thin layers of transition metals in circuitry are applied via interactions of gaseos organo-metalic complexes. Idk what species they use or what the fuck happens but it’s novel to see that phase utilized.

        Vapour deposition is one way of generating thin films in materials science yes. The vapour sublimes onto a cool surface.

        I didn’t get to do a whole lot of nmr but in the last 24 hrs I got to see satellite peaks in one of my spectra. The splitting of proton signals due to isotopes of 13C, the satellite peaks were indeed round about proportional to the abundance of 13C..

      The first idea of internet was a soviet project, designed by mathematician Victor Glushkov, called OGAS which got rejected by stalinists executives for being "anti-marxist"

      How come though? Glushkov wanted just to reduce bureaucratic slowdowns and unite every computer into a big powerful one, isn’t that kind of Marxist?

        What marxists promise is the opposite of what they actually want.

        I suggest Protocol by Alexander Galloway, he argues how the decentralization rhetoric applied to the internet obscures how it functionally centralizes and concentrates power rather than diffuse it. Stuff like centralized DNS servers that sit between you and raw IPs.

      Smooth brain here. Learned what ‘Discrete Mathematics’ was, turns out it’s just a label for a bunch of things I already kinda knew like Set Theory, Graph Theory and Logic. But I did learn what Permutations and Combinations are.
      I’m sure if I followed this rabbit hole deep enough eventually I’d find how I can apply it to my time management, or what sequence I should do home renovation in or something practical like that.

      i finally worked out how to think about tensors over finite dimensional vectorspaces in simple terms from first principles. i get the coordinate free formulation too. while my understanding doesn’t extend to infinite dimensions, it’s still a good starting point for finding more general rules that are equivalent in the finite case.

      also i have started to fuck with cuda in earnest. i’m needing to reverse engineer some PTX code and i’m well on my way at this point

      also you can adjust launch fuel levels in KSP so you don’t have to build ridiculous shit to meet awkward contract requirements

        Yes. Also go with as few dependencies as possible and when you need them, vet them for quality and perf.
        Realize that everything that’s not given by cpu architecture is a dependency.

      I had only one class in the morning, "molecule structure and activity". Or something like that. The names of subjects are kind of hard to translate. Class was mostly about reaction kinetics, and thermodinamic of ensimatic reactions. The prof also tought organic chem and everyone is scared of him cause hi is kind of strict and fails a lot of students, but in this small class for only those interested (7 people) he is actually really nice.

      Today I have come to the realization that the whole "going back to school" meme is a lie. Even though I graduated in the top 10 of my program 18 months ago, I still have no job prospects. No one wants someone in their thirties with a fresh degree and no relevant work history. Everyone else in the same program as me and who graduated at the same time as me or at the following commencement was a traditional student. All of them have since found a job relevant to their education. Even the people who got through on a C average. I have given up finding a job in my field 3 months ago and have been trying to get into the trades, and still getting passed over left and right.

      >So for all of you still in highschool I have learned: Once a wagie always a wagie. DO NOT put off university, and DO NOT take any job that is not either A) an internship B)a co-op C)relevant to your field or D) at a company with whom you plan to seek employment after graduating.
