I recently joined @guresuke in a metal project called MATHEMORPHOSIS

Our first song, "Long Winter", was written by Guresuke-san. His lyrics evoke in me the spirit of these days of social segregation -- the reign of Camus' Absurd. Song and lyrics are here:

Whatever the topic of a discussion,
that discussion is about Leibniz.

Women of quiet strength --
The subtle power of feminine beauty roars from the canvases of Shoen Uemura

Come saprete è un server autogestito quindi nessun* è pagato per il mantenimento del servizio ma purtroppo l'infrastruttura ha dei costi inevitabili. Considerando le migliaia di utenti registrate su questa istanza mastodon bastarebbe che ognun* facesse una donazione del costo di una birra per sostenere le spese di un anno. Quindi se avete voglia e la possibilità di supportare questo progetto ci farebbe molto piacere. La pagina da cui fare le donazioni è questa:

How I wish that Japan would not suffer anymore of all those natural disasters :(

Dear Wim, I'm so happy of so unexpected a development! Incredible, I cannot believe that they would select a track of little me... truly a great surprise today ^_^

Also this is an additional reason to thank you again for your suggestion to change the track title... the previous one was totally senseless and ambiguous while now it is perfect, a song celebrating our ^_^


Roel Vergauwen is één van de zeven boekers die al 20 jaar bij Rock Werchter betrokken is. Hij viste de track FediDance van de intrigerende Leuvense producer Eidon op, én geeft een inkijk in het programmatievak.

I'm speechless really

Roel Vergauwen - programmer Rock Werchter
chooses Eidon because ...
"Eidon is a solo artist from Leuven who labels his music as progressive rock, which is already special in these times. But he also draws on math rock, minimal music, jazz, ethnic music, ... He'd be a perfect support for Gogo Penguin, Battles or Dijf Sanders and could eventually conquer a place at both Rock Werchter and Gent Jazz or Couleur Café. Curious how he will bring this live"

‘It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. ‘Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. ‘It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.

🌌 Today I learned that the longest wall ever… 

…is 10 billion light years away.

Galaxies that are bound together by gravity can form structures called filaments, which span across the universe. The biggest we know of is the Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall, which is 3 gigaparsecs long – about 1/10 of the diameter of the observable universe.

"'What props, thou ask'st, in these bad days my mind?' One of the answers to Arnold's curiously unpronounceable question remains today what it has been ever since man first invented the art of writing: a collection of good books."

- Aldous Huxley, 'If my library burned tonight' (1948)

"What would you do if your library burned tonight? From his Californian desert retreat, [Aldous Huxley] re-appraises his choice of the world's literary classics."

What I'd love is a command that tells LaTeX: width=AsBigAsPossibleThoughWithinTheCurrentPage
