Re: Speeches, Essays and other things

Possibly. But “you’ve now read” is vaguish about when the books were read. It does carry an air of “at last,” as intended. I quite like the sentence. I am often unintentionally brilliant. In fact probably more often unintentionally than not. I'm sure the sentence is correct and I also like it. I ju...

Re: Python tricks

Nice! A good experiment would be to compare the respective functions wrt accuracy and performance and try to come up guidelines on 'best practices' (to use an awful phrase). It's the same algorithm, so the accuracy should be the same. You can calculate the sample variance if you want. BTW you use a...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

So, imagine having a tight budget for both time and money. Then the grand fucker comes to give a speech, and your choice is to come and listen or to forfeit your hard earned time or money. Hardly fair!  https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/17/politics/workers-trump-speech-attend-pto-no-pay/index.html Royal ...

Re: Speeches, Essays and other things

Not sure.  You "had forgotten" before Cuchulainn even "has read" the books.  It's as if you two were in different frames of reference (separated in time).  Einsteinian grammar!

Most data scientists/ML engineers have been coding for 2-4 years. Most have master’s degrees
