so my last exam is about cryptography and codetheory. prof has some nice course material, but due to "legacy" reasons the cryptography part is written in dutch and the codetheory part in english. i think im gonna try and rewrite the crypto part in english as a form of studying (because fuck i cant be arsed to start doing exercises and memorizing shit just yet). maybe the prof can finally have coherent course material :P
i wonder if a (federated) reddit alternative could work like mastodon does, though on the other hand i do feel like reddit _requires_, in a sense, a large mass of people (more than a handful of friends) to be effective. who else is gonna aggregate all the interesting links
really thinking about deleting reddit after reading this https://words.steveklabnik.com/a-sad-day-for-rust
i don't think social media is bad per se, but i really think that _modern_ social media where millions of people get congragated into tiny rooms and are allowed to scream at each for as long as they want really isn't healthy.
i enjoy using mastodon because, although at first i thought despite, there are a handful of people here and the interactions are very... not-internetty.
