    I'm currently reading Dune. I think it's pretty good thus far. I don't yet see why it's praised as one of the best books of all time, but I'm not deep into it yet!

    https://github.com/pnnl/HyperNetX Hypergraphs are just generalizations of normal graphs. Instead of an edge containing 2 vertices, an edge can contain up to n vertices.

    Yes that is certainly true. I do think it's a form of programming. People already do incredible things with this game. I dreamsurf all the time and I'm consistently impressed. Have you done any dream shaping? It's really hard! Even as someone who does programming.

    I'm always tempted to put time into learning it. I just feel... guilty? It's just hard for me to justify learning this form of programming when my personal GitHub is so barren, and I could be learning things that might help me get a job in the future. If I want to make a game, I could learn something like unity and create a game while learning useful C# skills. That's just my own problem though, and doesn't take away from how amazing this game and it's community is.

    Personally though, I find it hard to motivate myself to learn the creation tools when I could be spending my time programming. Even still, the creations that other people make are consistently amazing.

    I have been reading Meditations and Discourses recently. I've found that their insights have been very helpful for me. If anyone has any other recommendations, I will happily take them.

    This guy is doing a cool series about the greatest of all time basketball player. In each video, he makes an argument for the GOAT status of a different player. In this one he makes the case for Tim Duncan, someone I have never really considered for GOAT. They're long videos, but they're well done. I particularly recommend his videos on Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell as they feature some very interesting basketball history.

    I personally find it hard to argue that Michael Jordan isn't the GOAT, but that's the most boring opinion ever and could certainly stem from my own bias. Jordan was nuts though. Talk about a player who was just completely unstoppable.

    Who is your GOAT?

    It actually took me like 3 or 4 attempts to get past the Tutorial. Once you're past it though, the game REALLY opens up. Choice paralysis never goes away though lol.

    Oh I see. No. That isn't what I meant. Although, I now see how it came across that way. I actually think that this ban is about 3 years too late. My problem moreso lies in the fact that I don't believe the Reddit team is doing this for the right reasons. Spez is on record saying some shady things and I doubt he's suddenly seen the light.

    Nothing wrong with banning hate speech, I just think that Reddit seems very disingenuous. Furthermore, I just don't want to waste my time on the website anymore. It's very addictive.

    For me, this might be the last straw for reddit. I feel like I have also become too easily distracted by it. I'm gonna try to make tildes as my only social media.

    Here's my favorite A.I. course so far

    I also really like python-course.eu (it also has a standard python tutorial you might find helpful).

    Goodluck on your programming journey my friend. If I can help you in any way, please let me know!
