I want to create a social experiment and I need advice
Essentially I want to make a spherical voronoi or Delaunay triangulation, but the points are added by any user on internet. A user can do one of the operation, say every other ten minutes:
Add a point
Delete a point
Change color of a region
Open to suggestions, tell me what you think4
So couple days ago I posted my meme website: meme4meme.me
Now after some constructive suggestions I have finally redesigned the thing, now it is:
Better with mobile device
Link is unique for each meme so you can share
Can download content
Please enjoy the memes I collected over the year and let me know any suggestions you have24
I have a question
Given an irregular area which is created by combining triangles from Delaunay triangulation, and a box with fixed ratio, how to decide where to put the box so that it has maximum area (box only has fixed ratio no fixed edge length)
I can only think of something maybe just a bit better than brute force but cannot think of anything else10
I said a long time ago I wanted to build a website to share memes I collected with my gf
Today I built it, behold: meme4meme.me
Warning: mobile not friendly but doable10
I want to start a blog, and the name will be “I have a call degree/I am a programmer, but how do I”. Through this blog I want to share things I learned by my own, like seriously, nobody taught me to write full stack application, nobody taught me how to write opencv in c++, nobody taught me how to write a simple game, anyone has any suggestions?3
I spent 4 days making this:
Cleaning data, learning threejs, optimizing the search because threejs is slow as shit, etc
Tell me I’m awesome (please)
Everyday I go on Reddit to find memes, and share it with my girlfriend. Maybe I should build a website for this?11
I don’t want to write paper/ run test to produce meaningful numbers
Anyone want an image like this?
Just tell point me to the image, a set of text and I will do it for you
Please I’m bored
This is the mandalorian using his lines from season 112
So I wanted to publish the spherical voronoi minesweeper on steam. I paid the one time fee, submitted my tax document and then never heard back, and that’s four month ago.
Shall I just open source it, it’s a unity project so idk how the structure of that should be.
I can also just put the built version on github, if the file size is not enormous.4
I wanted to build a platform for student who wants to do research and are having hard time finding a good professor within university or from outside, so naturally I started asking professor I knew and this is what I get:
Normally they will only hire students from within university unless student himself has funding, and even with that hiring students from outside is a lot of procedures.
And no, such platform probably won’t be that useful as they get a lot of emails asking about research.
Startup idea instantly killed.7
This is like a survey: for people Dodd research when in school, how much difficulty did you go through to find a good research position4
Since the last post did not have the gif correctly attached, and @C0D4 suggested how to do this properly, here it is again.
With virtual camera, now I join meetings like this, and it is a live demo not just a video
Here is the repo to achieve the effect
You will still need a virtual camera software to project it in the meeting, for me I used OBS8
With the help of obs virtual camera, now I can join meeting like this
It’s real time not just a video, idk if gif works correctly on devrant now, but it’s me dancing
Edit: apparently gif still doesn’t work on devrant18
I don’t give a shit about boycotting Mulan, I paid to watch this movie
And the movie is shit, so I genuinely ask people to not waste the money to watch it. It’s just so shit and such a waste of my time74
I updated the UI as I said last time
Found out word cloud essentially is NP hard problem, so can’t do it in an efficient way.
However, now it is more interactive, and gives the illusion it is faster30
You know what
I’m gonna fucking rebuild my website since the ui got bashed pretty hard by a friend who studies hci
And just gonna make it faster while at it33
Is there a good tool I can use to design my UI with vuejs support
I am looking at bootstrap studio but since I will be using multiple JS script as well as .vue file, it doesn’t seem to be good.
Things happened this year so far in chronological order:
Applied to PhD and got all rejected
Graduated without a job because I thought the last event wouldn’t happen
Decided to take more shots at universities in Europe and Canada
Paper got published and got best paper honorable mention
Interviewed by couple professors and the one in Canada seems to be interested in me
School in Canada, which rejected me before, reopened my case for review
Bank account got closed because my parents transferred me some money to support my unemployment ass and bank thought it was a fraud
The review process took so long I got hopeless and thought, if I end up writing webpages for other people, why not doing it now? And did two webpages which are in my previous rant, pretty good and highly recommended imo
Canada school promised a date but didn’t follow that date, depression attack
Finally sent them an email and got an answer saying the admission approved my application and they are working on paper work. But I still don’t believe it because I’m paranoid
Got an email from a professor today confirming they are doing paper work and I should receive official paper soon.
You can see the dramatic ups and downs, but in the end, guess I’m going to Toronto for phd14
Another project done in 3 days
Generates word cloud based on image and text file user given, the default is Lincoln and his speeches.
Doesn’t work on phones, please view it on desktop/laptop
My god I’m a fucking legend12
Fuck it, implemented another idea: image voronoi, it computes a voronoi diagram over the input image, each cell is then populated with the average color inside that cell
This is an image with the get high option on
I’m so productive and I’m proud of myself6
Quarantine and unemployment gave me opportunities to do side projects, here is another one I’ve done recently and I think you guys will like it
It is an image mosaic that preserves features based on color gradient, and tries to use as many photos as possible instead of just repeatedly using same picture over and over.

For those who care about my minesweeper game, I’m working on submitting it to steam and make it a free game.2
After one year of procrastination I finally made the game with unity
Ladies and gentleman, spherical voronoi minesweeper
Yes, I made the game before with in c++ which looks quite shitty, but finally, unity30
Why are many of the customizable mechanical keyboard still not going wireless?
I hate plugging in cables to Mac, quite against their design philosophy.8
I created a mesh viewer
With matrix effect
So I have the new Mac book pro for 8 months now, always thought that the butterfly keyboard issue will never happen to me.
Until three days ago I noticed my space key is kinda sticky.
I have an external monitor so I don’t recall any time I spill water or food directly on the keyboard.
So I made an appointment for a walk in.
BUT this morning, I was like: man, fuck this shit and smashed the space key.
Now it’s fixed.
Has anyone used catch2? How do I pass the command line arguments to a test when I have test in a separate file. The supplying main yourself document is quite useless, it only tells you how to get the arguments but not how to pass it to tests. I saw people setting a global variable in main but it’s not working for me.
Shall I switch to vs code?
I have been using sublime text for years and the sublime merge works well with it. And I did buy license since I love it. Idk if I should switch or not8
Inspired by my professor’s rant about people don’t know how to google stuffs, I made a scriptable script to solve all those issues. It’s a super smart script that shows detailed step by step solution of how to tackle down a problem
Here is the repo:
Please try it out, you will love it, I promise
