Pinned toot

I just wrote a little program in C++ which asks the user to rank 5 vegetables according to preference, then re-prints the list in order of the user's preferences. Now I am curious: which of these vegetables is your favorite?

Mine is broccoli, however, this poll can only handle 4 choices. Please comment your favorite or least favorite vegetables and boost this post.

I am one step from an online certificate in data science, however, there is a lot to learn here. So many modules, functions, and attributes

I was frustrated today while learning to use Python / Jupyter notebook / IBM Watson for data science. Maybe there are too many layers of complexity behind what is often hailed as a simple interface. Maybe I dislike creating one object variable after another, wondering which one is going to cause an error. Maybe I just want to retreat to my own computer terminal emulator, where I can give Python the Ctr-D treatment when it misbehaves.

I have a new email account from and it is amazing to see only 276.71 KB used in my inbox, with a capacity of 500 MB. Storage is very cheap, so why do we automatically opt in to cloud storage? I know I am preaching to the choir.

BTW my spouse and I still have a 32 MB USB drive which cost around $60 when it was new.

I have just started making sketches / plans for a program to solve the Rubik's cube. I am sure it has been done many times, however, it just occurred to me to try, and I will refrain from copying other solutions.

I drove the Prius Prime, Chevy Bolt, and the Nissan Leaf. All of which were nice vehicles.

I am test driving electric and hybrid electric vehicles today 🔌

The most adorable of these Sesame Street characters is...

One of my interests is , and at home we have a RepRap 3D printer sitting on our worktable, beside our desktop computer and a retro printer. I have been thinking of installing another Linux distribution on the desktop so the software, Printrun, has a better chance of working properly.

I am going to post periodic updates, and please share your experiences with 3D printing with Linux, if you have done so.

Woh. 😶 I thought I was looking at a typo or glitch. Turns out there are two very unbalanced-looking Chinese characters:

乒 乓

Today I learned that they go together to make the word for Ping Pong a.k.a. table tennis. And suddenly the way they're written makes sense. 🤣

just published my first blog post using nothing else but the terminal. feeling extra nerdy tonight.

Lego is trying to find a replacement for petroleum based plastic for the past 7 years, so far with little success:

This is one of the holy grails of the eco friendly industry. Whoever manages to solve this will be swimming in Lego monies, and others.

Also it's great to see a corporation actually taking this issue seriously for a change.

I just helped my spouse with a couple of data files for a project. The challenge was to code 7 survey responses (Strongly disagree to Strongly agree), changing the string to an integer. It seemed a lot easier to use the "sed" command in a Linux terminal, rather than sorting a 174x50 array in a graphical spreadsheet. And so it was.

One day I will learn how to properly use "awk" and or "gawk".
