For limited time only! If you go to click the Proceedings button you can read an article titled Retrieval of Visually Shared News by yours truly.

It's about all you care about: Twitter, news, propaganda and machine learning.

Have a read. I've enjoyed rereading. Next week I'll present it in Tartu, Estonia.

Yay, i'm back again. My instance run out of space. Media took too much space.

I'm dealing with a codebase full of

<20 lines of code>
except Exception as e:

constructions. It's hard to debug because there is no way to set a breakpoint inside of such try block.

Any suggestions how to deal and eliminate such code?

WSL's default shell setup still does very bad things with SSH and Screen.

Is Putty still the way to go in Windows land? I haven't used a windows box as a daily driver since Vista >_>

The swim today was great. It was one of that rare powerful days when I could push trough the pain and it didn't feel like the end of the world as we know it. Even though I was in the water 5 minutes late, I managed to put my mind in the right mode

After I've restarted Firefox, Google Inbox switched to Gmail... What a good reason to migrate to a self hosted email server.

I'm reviewing for and just got the papers. Looking at the titles, all fo them seem interesting to me.

It's time to read about hate speech. Any recommendations? Research papers, studies?
