There's limesurveys (FLOSS) too, but maybe someone has a better one.

Any good free software to conduct a public survey? (Like, but other than google forms?)

Also, where can I read about how to choose Representative Samples while conducting a self-report based (in mainly). Is it in the literature on statistical methods? Or Cognitive Biases? Books on Research Methods? Any other? Where do you suggest I look?

Thanks.😃

The Blind Men and the Elephant, by John Godfrey Saxe.

(6 blind men encounter an elephant, each touches a different part, and argue whether that the elephant is like a wall, snake, spear, tree or a rope.)

"So often theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!"

Natalie Merchant sung this beautiful poem: youtu.be/BzSy5Pqu3YM

Every time I switch to a different app on my computer, if it has a text field, that field is full of j's from when I thought another window had focus and I was trying to move to the next item in a list

A bit of context to the scene in my header Image.

It's a dialogue between Bactrian King Milinda/Menander, & the Buddhist sage Nāgasena, from around 1st-2nd Century BCE recorded in a buddhist text, Milinda Pañha.

@bgcarlisle Yup, I was looking into that yesterday, it even has integration with -mode, which I use for most writing.

@data Thanks, that was very helpful, I didn't know how long I could manage this on a 128GB SSD (Databases in Recoll are portable only for querying, not updating) a client server arch. saves the day.

I'd been painfully adding titles to database all this while, had even completed 1.7GB of total 16GB. I don't think I would do that anymore.

Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.

Parents: (sob)

Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.

Parent: Did... did crayons do this

Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..

Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED

Because then the last word would have been awholeparagraphseparatedwithhyphens.😄

Why do whitespaces count in those 500 characters?
"Upto 50 words (give or take)" would've been so much more intuitive.

Latex Support would be so cool.

Can we have inline latex support like the folks at mathstodon.xyz/ ?
