It's two weeks until the release date of Lubuntu 18.10! Next week we will get release candidate images.
What do you plan to #dowithlubuntu?
Hi! I’m a linguist at the University of Iceland working on the online processing of compounds, agreement with nominative objects, long-distance reflexives, and prosody, all in Icelandic.
I’m interested in maths and computational models, programming, and building things. Open code and science are the best of things.
The birth of #Linux
27 years ago.
On August 25 1991 Linus Torvalds wrote to comp.os.minix:
"I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."
"won't be big" he said. 😃
Happy birthday, Linux, and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds.

Let's look at the different clusters. They aren't clearly separated, but still visible.
I'm a PhD candidate in #linguistics at Latrobe Uni. Doing an acoustic analysis of fricatives, affricates, and lexical tone in Lisu and Lipo. Or trying to, at least.
Areas of interest include #phonetics (mostly acoustic analysis, but I'd love to branch out into articulatory or perceptual studies as well), #phonology, #typology, #LanguageVariation, #EndangeredLanguages, and #LanguageDescription.
In case it's not obvious, we need testers to shake every branch of every tree before release.
For me at least, there are two modes of writing/coding:
- learning a lot of new stuff and trying it all out on a poor little piece of old work until it looks like Frankenstein
- not learning anything new at all, but just spitting out more and more vaguely new stuff for the sake of quantity
I know these two phases have to be balanced, but also tend to stuck in the former one, and the latter gives me depression, regardless of all the benefits (e.g. a thicker "portfolio").
To fellow computational linguists:
In this python example on text classification paragraph 1.3 of https://www.nltk.org/book/ch06.html
The nested for loop that produces the list **documents** actually causes the dataset to be to the second power.
By then shuffling the dataset and dividing into training and testing set won't there be bias since some reviews will be in both sets? Or am I missing something?
I'm a computational biologist (1st biochemist, then computer scientist), Prof. of Cell Biology at UConn Health. I'm interested in many different areas such as iron physiol., central metabolism, ox. stress, dyamics, software development. I'm one of the authors of the COPASI simulation software and its predecessor (Gepasi, thus my handle). Care strongly about #openaccess & #opensource. Also interested in photography, Linux.
Hey cool! I could have really used this two years ago in Phonetics class! Praat's scripting language is a very different ball of wax.
