Yes, a fraction is a rational number.

Is this actually true? 1/(2*pi) seems like a perfectly reasonable fraction to me. My intuitive feeling is that a fraction is just one quantity divided by another quantity, no matter the set membership.

I'm pretty curious about whether it's could be illegal to try to hack your own computer in the cloud. I wonder if there's a precedent.

In the acceptable use policy, they write

Vulnerability Testing

You may not attempt to probe, scan, penetrate or test the vulnerability of a Linode system or network, or to breach the Linode security or authentication measures, whether by passive or intrusive techniques, without Linode's express written consent. If you are a Linode customer and need to perform a penetration test, let us know beforehand by emailing support@linode.com.

Probably best to start there.

Well that's a 2010's indie band name if I ever saw one.

And to think, all those years wasted, dreaming of flying cars. We were so young...

Kind of interesting to think about how old my parents were when each of these movies came out.

And it's not just up, it has a "Shoe Lacing Photo of the Week", and an updated "Shoelaces As Seen In The News". Incredible! :O

Jenny Nicholson is the best. The segment about Cars Land from this video is an absolute classic.

She also did a video series called "Millenial Falcon" on another channel where she interviews people about Star Wars and turns the rudeish deadpan up to 11, and it's great.

I found myself in a similar situation a while back. After reading some reviews, I decided to buy a new PS4 controller, and I'm pretty happy with it. Feels very solid, good d-pad, you can use a micro-usb cord (not included) or bluetooth (if the computer supports it). Getting it to work in Linux was as easy as plugging it in.

As for downsides, the micro-usb connection doesn't feel quite as robust as one would like for a controller imo, compared to just having the cord sticking out or maybe an usb-c port. But I doubt it will become a problem in practice.

Nice comment!

And not to get all nostalgic and weird and shit, but I have enjoyed reading your posts and comments over the years :-)
