I wish the war and suffering in Ukraine to end.
When I was in highschool, there was a New Year show that invited pop and rock artists to sing together and have fun. That was a neat, fresh and fun to watch alternative to established Russian mainstream shows in mid 2000s.
Back then this video of a Russian, a Ukrainian and a Latvian was just a performance. I could not imagine that there would be time that this would be impossible. Now I'm not even sure that I'll see something similar in my lifespan.
I'm looking for an offline tool to locally review Git commits/PR
My need is to regularly look for updates in a repository, and mark commits I reviewed myself. This can't be plugged in into an existing repo / tool.
Any idea if something exists?
Let imagine I want to review changes in a package repository after it has been merged upstream, but I want to keep track of my work (and ideally publish it)

Honestly the state of the internet is miserable if you're trying to learn things.
Like, you want to learn how to care for an animal? Well, every Google result is a bot generated fake blog. Maybe try YouTube? Well, you have a few new options: there's the person who just got this animal for the first time talking like experts about them. Or there's the literal child telling you what they learned about caring for hamsters from the bot generated fake blogs they just looked up.
This goes for almost anything anymore. There's no expertise, the only advice is just from whoever is the best at SEO, which is often not an actual person. But if it is they probably know as much as you do.
In the last 6 or 7 years I've found myself more and more just digging up ebooks from people who know what the fuck they're talking about.
I'm not going to be purchasing anything on #bandcamp today, because next friday is bandcamp friday when 100% of sales go directly to artists.
However! I do need some #BandcampFriday recs for next week.
I want to buy music from real people, so bonus points if you're sharing your own music.
It's the holiday season, so I'm also looking at merch and physical copies to go with digital downloads.
I have $1,000 set aside to buy music from real people, mostly to give to other people, for the holiday season, and I'd love for you to help me spend it.

#introduction toot! Hi 👋 I’m Julia, a #phd candidate #umich doing research in #nlp #nlproc , computational #sociolinguistics , #computationalsocialscience and #polcomm .

I might have came up with a fun project to pick up a functional language.
A functional language would be a good fit, because then the yaml file would not be different from (python) code, which would allow me to come up with advance compositions without implementing them.
The main idea behind was to express a pipeline as a dag where nodes perform action in data. The dag is described in a yaml file.
Computer science, computational linguistics, running, swimming, photography.
