"if you don't have any of these you're not a real person"

If you've raised your wages but you still can't attract any applicants, it's not because nobody wants to work, it's because you didn't raise it enough. Keep raising it, and then once you start getting applications, you'll know you've reached the pay scale to attract workers.

You would think capitalists would do this instead of bitch constantly to the WSJ and the NYtimes

@paul oh yeah! I love it. Here's a cute web comic by one of my faves (Sarah Anderson) called Club Cryptid that's related: club-cryptid-by-sarah.tumblr.c

today I'm catching up on all my assignments that I missed for my crypto class (that's CRYPTOGRAPHY the only crypto (besides cryptozoology) we allow in this house)

I've done the 4 reading/writing assignments and now I have to move on to the 4 assignments of practice problems *cries in math*

Doc-minded colleagues: does anyone know of good + accessible tools or libraries for creating help-text overlays or guided actions on a web site?

Like, something that can be integrated into a front-end client that enables a "tutorial" mode with scripted actions and text you can advance through to explain the interface

a colleague tweeted windows 11 will require internet connection and MS account??

Apple managed to kill off Flash, and I would suggest they take on Safari next

@mplouffe oh no plagiarism reports are the WORST!

but what a way to unwind!!

Reading audiobooks is still reading.

If you say you read an audiobook you don't have to "correct" yourself. I'd argue that you /shouldn't/, that you'd get less correct.

There's no need to say "well no I didn't read it" if it was an audiobook. There's no need to put "reading" in scare quotes.

It's reading just as much as reading print is.

I know there are worse problems, but it sucks having my favored reading format denigrated by sighted people, even to the point of them denying it's "real."

@Lady @djsundog

@witchy i gotchu anytime, so much love right back!

I really like R actually and use it for my own analyses, here's an example that you could also follow about analyzing survey data and making some plots: gitlab.com/investigating-archi

@witchy the class materials are also openly available, so if you download the Rmd file on this page and the data, you can walk through it: guides.nyu.edu/ds_class_descri

there's narrative AND code in the Rmd file, so you can literally read how code works, run it, and see for yourself

@witchy yes, my department supports people using R and we have a guide here that has some resources that might be helpful: guides.nyu.edu/r
