Some fields sadly only have one lab looking into them..
Adventures in #julia. Yay! I found a package for what I want to do! Boo, it's for version 0.4 (currently 1.2). How impolite is fixing someone elses stuff? I mailed them. I'll probably break it in the process since I'm a julia-noob
Adventures in #julia: So far I like many things but will never get used to array being the first element. Also no brackets which feels strange. I like that from 1.2.0 on you have to explicitly tell an incrementation inside a loop that it's global if you want it to update the value outside the list.
Reading about the latest harassment situation, this time at the GSA, I am hearing and seeing more people suggesting that we have fewer moments with alcoholic beverages at scientific conferences because it is creating an unsafe situation for (afab) undergraduates.
