I just realized I never posted the finished shawl. I finished it shortly after FOSDEM 2020, back when the world was s̶t̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶s̶a̶n̶e̶ slightly less insane. Here it is, in all its glory.

I have always been opposed to the "Great Men of History" theory and I think I have said that here before. But I was quite pleased to learn (via Ken Macleod's novel The Sky Road) that my views align very well with those of Marxist thinkers Plekhanov and Engels. I read Plekhanov's essay
but I also found an article that gives a nice summary: " The Decisive Role of the Individual in History"

Hello @RussellsBarbershopQuartet

I'm in love with Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz

I know by heart his Monadology

Can I get an invite for now?

sometimes I have the impression that everything has been written in Japan

and then copied elsewhere

If I understand correctly, "Avengers Endgame" is the Avengers with Okabe Rintarou looking for the world line, with SERN and the other organizations played by Thanos, Hydra, and Shield gone awry

Is there anybody on the Fediverse who does animations / games and would be interested in using my music for it?

Please find a sample here:

I will , that's what I will do!

Bon et bien #JeChercheUnJob enfin plutôt #JeChercheUnStage
Je suis actuellement en fin de licence et je chercherais un stage pour juin, juillet, aout (ou une combinaison de ça). Si possible n'importe quoi sauf du développement web mais ça dépend aussi du contexte. Je poste ici surtout parce que je m'en fout un peu de la rémunération mais j'aimerais faire quelque chose d'intéressant informatiquement et pourquoi pas avec un intérêt pour la société (on peut toujours rêver, n'est-ce pas).
CV en MP.
Repouets appréciés (:ablobcatheartsqueeze:​)

@Meandres Hi Méandres, in your profile picture there's Illyasviel right? I wrote a piece of music called Irisviel, dedicated to her mother ^_^

I still remember my delight at seeing this painting for the first time in the Tate Gallery in London, long, long ago.

"Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" by John Singer Sargent, 1885–6

If you want to know more about those parakeets, here is a recent paper: "Understanding the origins of the ring‐necked parakeet in the UK"

"explanations ranging from birds escaping from the set of the film ‘The African Queen’ to animals being released in Carnaby Street in London by Jimi Hendrix in the 1960s"

(as the paper goes on to show, neither of these are credible)

Today I discovered to my delight that Dawsholm Park in is home to a colony of parakeets! They've apparently been there a while but I had not spotted them before.
