So unfortunately I don't really have the time to maintain a mastodon anymore.

I still want to use mastodon, I love talking about rust on here.

But I don't think I can manage _this_ server.

So I'm going to close it down in 3 weeks-ish - 19th December, and move to a new address by then. It's been fun learning this stuff, but I know it's possibly insecure because I just don't have the time to keep updating it.

I really don't feel like I enjoy the analysis side of data science anymore.

It's cool to learn new things about data, but at the end I have a notebook and a few new tools. And that just doesn't feel like enough anymore.

I think I want to do some kind of data/ops, build some tools, work with algorithms.

Is there any way of idiomatically finding the sort order of a list, without sorting it?

So if I had
1 4 3 5
It'd return
0 2 1 3

Rather than sorting it into place?
are the communities I usually ping for this sort of thing, but it's kinda language agnostic.

There is nothing as satisfying in programming as coming back to an old project and getting very slightly further.

Last year I was trying to create new vectors in from non-sequential patterns of input. And I hated it. (Because if you read in a CSV and then want to work with the data, at some point you need to access a column of the data, and putting vectors in vectors is *very bad*)

And now I have an okay-ish way of dealing with that problem, because I'm now a lot more comfortable with using unsafe.

Writing something in that I had written in C++.

"I don't *want* to define an option here, but I also don't want to have to put a file reader in the function to define a new object. How did I do it before?

Oh, I left everything unitialised and C++ just never told me off for it"

don't worry, the project is still likely to show it's not profitable, but I was 100% prepared for "no statistical impact"

Like I spent the entire leadup to the project trying to work out how I was going to phrase

"looks like a waste of money"

to a client, and now I'm super glad I didn't even touch that topic.

I have something kinda wild to report.

I was doing some analysis on TV advertising at work.

I think TV Advertising actually does have an impact on people purchasing items. I don't know how to feel anymore.

Hey Mastodon.

What's your favourite casual recipe?

Because like 90% of what I cook is recipes I've had cooked for me by friends. Like tonight I'm cooking chicken/kale/pasta with a white wine cream sauce and it is bae, but I'd never have cooked it if it wasn't for my partner cooking it last week.

Me: A typical adult, trying to do well under capitalism and being sensible

Also me: consistently wanted a sword for christmas since learning what swords were
