Pushcx removed my dork web post from lobsters on the grounds of self-promotion, so I won't be posting TFTDW on there anymore.

He's deleted a few of my posts over the past few days and came across as fairly aggro in the message, so I'll take a break from there for a while.
I've participated in a few threads on self-promotion because it's something I want to avoid. I don't post TFTDW link roundups for example because I don't think that has value to lobsters users.
The reason I post TFTDW on lobsters in the first place is because other people post elsewhere (e.g. HN) which is really cool, but if I post it on lobsters I get reply notifications on comments so I can join in more easily - If someone else posts it I might miss the discussion for example.

Mastodon help. I need to search through my old toots. I think I vaguely remember a few words I used in the toot that I made several months ago. The Mastodon UI does not make it obvious how to do this. Do we have the technology?

Hoy debido a la Pandemia que nos atraviesa nos es imposible poder (momentáneamente) seguir usando las instalaciones, pero sí nos parece importante seguir colaborando en la difusión de actividades, revelamientos que llevan adelante o en la administración de sus plataforma Web que gracias a la colaboración de varios compañeres del CSL pusimos en marcha.

Es por este motivo que me gustaría pedirles si nos colaboran compartiendo este informe que realizaron en conjunto La Asociación Migue Bru y Ciudad Sin Techo El informe muestra claramente como en la Ciudad mas rica del país, tenemos una gran cantidad de compatriotas viviendo en la calle. Desde ya muchas gracias.

I've been doing some more practicing using a limited palette of colours, different levels of lightness to heaviness of colour, and different shades of blending.

I'm mostly happy with the overall look, apart from the 3 hanging flowers in the main panel, which I think I did the edging/lines too dark. It was fun trying to try out different looks with just a few purple and green pencils.

A page from a colouring book with flowers and leaves in a mixed sized block levels and panels. The colours are different shades of greens and purples. Different styles of blending and layering have been used, with some areas coloured in darker than others. For example, the flower on the left panel is all the same pencil, just using different levels of lightness and heaviness, and blending. The lines around the panels have been coloured in, in a dark purple.
Focus on to panels of purple flowers and green and green-yellow, leaves.
A small panel of three individual flowers. The top flower has green petals and a purple centre and the other two are mainly purple with some green.

Quoth Sheldon Axler in Linear Algebra Done Right:

> Unfortunately no method exists for exactly computing the eigenvalues of an operator from its matrix.


I guess he means that in general eigenvalues are roots of a polynomial, which have no solution by radicals?

He also is trying to avoid determinants and characteristic polynomials in his book, so maybe he considers the charpoly to not be "from its matrix".

shoot him an email, or post a comment on his youtube.

Nice guy. I have very bad memories of that book and its associated class though.
JordiGH mastodon (AP)
Oh? Tell me about the bad memories.
Well some purists might even say that no known method exists for computing square root of two exactly.
JordiGH mastodon (AP)
Drop the "known" there before some crank sees it and decides to try to prove us all wrong. 😁

I took it with a very, very good professor, and he drove right into tensors and such in his first class and gave us this really weird handout that I couldn't make head or tails of. And the ta was a putnam guy, so the recitations were also above my head. I was barely treading water. Then covid happened, and I drowned.

I remember other linear algebra tragedies too when I was in school. I think we were using Dummit and Foote, or at least that was the recommended text.

Thinking more and more that spending time writing both fiction and nonfiction every day is a mistake. I'm losing productivity by context switching.

Context switches used to be fine. I suspect 2020 stress is the underlying issue.

But still, perhaps alternating months between fiction & nonfic might be more productive.
Current 93 mastodon (AP)
My ability to context switch has gone to hell this year. Not sure if that’s the fact that I’m approaching 50 or 2020. I’m blaming 2020 because I want that to be the reason.
