@noctiluca I use Enpass, but I have their grandfathered one-time-purchase license. New signups are a few $/month if you don't mind paying for that.

BitWarden and Keepass are also good options

Here's a blog post I wrote about small p-values in hypothesis testing.

There are lots of ways your analysis can go wrong, and here I make the argument that absurdly small p-values is one heuristic that can tell you if something is off.

Paper got rejected, oh well. This time reviewer 1 was the harsh one, not reviewer 2.

Time to take the useful criticisms and try again

I first started using D3 in 2012. I've followed Mike Bostock's work since then, and he's got a lot of great stuff. He summarizes a lot of good lessons in this blog post

Good discussions about open source, different kinds of data visualization, and how to have fun with data

For academics answering questions after a seminar they give (or asking questions at a seminar they're attending), this article might be useful to keep in mind.

You are soliciting feedback when presenting. Not all feedback is equal, and you are free to ignore certain comments or questions because they're not applicable, or low priority.

There will be certain comments or questions that are critical to handle. Focus on those

Calendar Contacts software 

@ashwinvis That's the most popular tool I've seen, but I find it oddy unstable when dealing with Gmail Calendar, which is pretty annoying. I'm not really sure how to get that working properly.

Evolution seems pretty great and is a bit more stable but it's linux only

Calendar Contacts software 

@ashwinvis That's cool, I always like seeing stuff like this.

I have a follow-up question that's a bit off-topic. Do you know of good email clients that support CardDav/CalDav well? I see a lot that support major companies (Gmail, iCloud, Outlook), but I'm surprised how hard it is to find a good customizable email client that supports CardDav/CalDav well

This is just cool science. Precious DNA collected from mammoth molars from > 1 M years ago

On the new bioinformatics chat episode, Bárbara Bitarello helps us understand how polygenic risk scores (PRS) work and why they don’t transfer well across ancestries.

Interesting post by Paul Graham:

My most (and least) favourite quote:

> In other words, like many a grad student, I was working energetically on multiple projects that were not my thesis.

New question for tablet owners: do you read epubs on it? Where do you obtain eBooks in DRM-free epub format?

@petrichor Ah, that makes sense. I'll have to wait and see when they the videos are posted

This paper was a pleasure to read.

Identifying recurrent genetic variants in a rare disease, recreating the phenotype in mice, investigating the epigenetics and 3D chromatin, and functional investigation of the mechanism.

Papers like these are great

Hi, I'm Ilhan. I'm a fluid mechanician currently working on computational hydrology. I'm interested in environmental and geophysical flow modeling.

@petrichor I keep trying to watch talks from FOSDEM, but their page keeps timing out, for me.

How are you watching it? Clicking on the "Video only" link?
