The ability to effectively and efficiently work with data sets have existed for some time. There are projects like Jupyter which have an interactive computing environment, allowing the creation of interactive web applications, use of different kernels to utilize different engines, and ease of sharing the notebooks with colleagues.
Anaconda includes everything required for the majority of required cases. This is the recommended method for bootstrapping a system for development.
Install Anaconda on your system:
The installer for Anaconda is around 500MB, there is a lightweight version of Anaconda named Miniconda which is around 50MB in size.
Screenshots detailing the complete install process of Anaconda
The system is now ready, enjoy Anaconda along with all of the fantastic components useful for interactive scientific computing.
This seems like an interesting and simple editor. Not sure I'm sold as I'm used to the previous editors. I guess LJ is trying to be more in tune with how other sites are handling their user interface design decisions.
I may post more to LiveJournal as I've been using this site for quite a long time. I'll need to find some sort of cross posting application.
I think the majority of furries I interact with online, outside of the groups I've found to be rather social, tend to be completely anti-social. No they can't claim autism or aspergers, you're not allowed to use self diagnosed claims to your stupidity. Also nobody wants to hear about your life issues, if you need help then confide in a counselor or a close friend, not random people online where the response might be, "kill yourself."
Maybe this has to do more with "furry lifestylers" how they'll use furry as escapism, I don't know. Anyway, rant over.
Saturday she had surgery to remove a tumor from her abdominal area. I received the results back today from the veterinarian.
I have a choice to make if I want her to undergo chemotherapy. Hemangiosarcoma is incurable, the most with treatment would be a year at the very best. Untreated she has 1-3 months before the cancer wrecks havoc on her system which causes a major decline in her health before dying. My experience with animals is both domestic and wildlife, I've pulled the whole, "It's going to be ok, I'll make them live as much as possible," only to have the animal suffer more before perishing.
As of right now, I'm thinking what road to go down, if untreated then when to euthanize.
We bowled two games, one in suit, the other out of suit. Afterwards we wandered over to Steak and Shake where we chowed down on some burgers before departing home.
A bit bothering though was when a little girl's mother went up asking if we'd dance with the little girl and herself. The mother came up to me directly asking the question, then I shook my head yes. The mother then stated the little girl didn't want to dance with me, "Because you're black." I was wearing a friend's black dragon fursuit, I was not thrilled at hearing those words. The mother explains she wanted the pink dragon fursuiter to dance with the little girl instead.
I also checked it out myself, the information does appear to be valid.
(Quote from Vivisector)
"It appears that Lightpaws, the "Convention Chair, CEO & Executive of Operations" of Ohio's newest furry convention "Furlaxation", has a secret. Vivisector dot org has uncovered Lightpaws, a.k.a. Christopher Todd Shirk, is a registered sex offender, charged with "Illegal Use of Minor in Nudity Oriented Material"."
This is more severe than allowing a sex offender to attend a furry convention, why didn't anyone see a sex offender is running a con?
My own response to this is the following:
Deo, your heart is larger than most furries put together. Months back I thought about going to larger conventions, then went over alternative plans like helping unfortunate people and communities.
I believe many furries to be spoiled, spread-the-wealth fucking pricks. There are so many unfortunate people out there, yet only a few furries like you will put aside your own desires in order to help others.
Too many furries I see go to conventions on a meager budget or no budget, then bitch how they have no money, it's not fair and the economy sucks.
To those furries, I say "fuck you, be more like Deo"
Deo, you are more important than most furries combined.
I hope you do well, make sure to help as many people as possible. You're a godsend.
Immediately upon discovery I traced him to his father and placed a call to his workplace. I was able to get a hold of the father and explain to him what his son was posting. After the phone call I called the Pittsburgh FBI office, as I'm legally obligated to report child porn. An hour after I sent the father an email he replied back stating he was currently having a chat with his son about the troubling images.
The father will be taking his son to counseling in regards to the images, as I've already gathered from the rest of the online presence the kid was already troubled.
The FBI will be calling me back in order to followup, most likely with the father too since I gave them all the information I had on the incident.
Those who did the right thing, contacting me and reporting the images to DeviantArt, keep being awesome.
His father's reply
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I am in the process of talking to my son he will delete the pictures, he is going to talk to his counselor asap. I have spoken to him about the inappropriate behavior online. Further punishments to come!
Thank you again,
