It is with great pleasure that I share here the latest song of Mathemorphosis:


I feel indebted with @guresuke -san, who gave me the opportunity to sing and write the lyrics for this song he wrote. It is an important song to me, the best so far to me.

I hope you will like it as much as I do ^_^

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:

At the Meise botanical garden yesterday I had the chance to watch *two* Titan Arums! The greatest flowers in the world! (At least, of this era)

I took some nice pictures, maybe I should post them ^_^

Amazing how much I am learning from this wonderful collaboration!

I have submitted my vocal tracks and am very curious to see what the results will "look like" ^_^

How strange, I found that I boosted a toot that I am sure that I've not boosted. I wonder if it's time to change my passwords...

For some reason I had to think of this:

"Eächic was an ordinary, evolved language, with rooted assumptions which substituted sentimentality for compassion and aggression for cooperation. A comparatively innocent and sensitive soul like Gurgeh was bound to pick up some of its underlying ethical framework if he spoke it all the time."
(Iain M Banks, The Player of Games)

Nice summery salad of aubergines, chick peas and fresh mushrooms, served with Japanese rice in a separate bowl.
I diced aubergines and cooked them for 12 mins in the microwave. Mushrooms just raw, sliced.

The secret is in the dressing:
- tomato puree ~1 tbsp
- tobanjan (chilli bean sauce) ~ 1 tsp
- vinegar ~ 1 tbsp
- soy sauce ~ 1 tbsp
- yuzu juice ~ 1 tbsp
- garlic oil ~ 1 tsp
- pumpkin seeds ground in a mortar, ~2-3 tbsp
- the cooking liquid from the aubergines

ICYMI, please read my article about the need for low-carbon and and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

tld;dr: We need to drastically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.

"Dare maggiore importanza alle emozioni che alla realtà. Il sentimentalismo è ampiamente considerato fuori dalla realtà, una debolezza. Molto spesso, chi esprime preoccupazione (o persino interesse) per le condizioni in cui vivono gli animali d'allevamento è tacciato di sentimentalismo.
Ma vale la pena fare un passo indietro e chiedersi: chi sono i sentimentali e chi i realisti?
Voler sapere come sono trattati gli animali d'allevamento vuol dire confrontarsi con i fatti che riguardano gli animali e noi stessi, o evitare di farlo?

Sostenere che si debba attribuire maggior valore a un sentimento di compassione che al basso prezzo di un hamburger (o al fatto stesso di mangiare un hamburger) è un'espressione emotiva e impulsiva, o un tentativo di confrontarsi con i fatti e con le nostre intuizioni morali?

Due amici ordinano il pranzo. Uno dice "Ho voglia di un hamburger" e lo ordina. L'altro dice "Ho voglia di un hamburger", ma si ricorda che ci sono cose più importanti per lui di quello di cui ha voglia in un determinato momento e ordina qualcos'altro.
Chi è il sentimentale?"

(J.S. Foer)

Tikt al mijn uren weg
Voor wie wacht komt alles steeds te laat

En de klok zegt tik, tik

Voor wie wacht komt alles steeds te laat"

@Eidon They're a self-contained system that executes on top of a runtime (usually docker). The benefits are largely the same as for VM-based languages ("write once, run anywhere"), making the runtime your only dependency.

Mostly it's easier for admins/operators to just run a (fleet of) container(s) instead of installing and setting up dependencies. Don't believe anyone who uses containers for security.

Also bloat.

What are container applications? Why are they an interesting alternative to local applications?
