AZTECCOHow can we depict a turned shape simply and nicely using ascii characters in 3D space? I suggest this method : Instead of a circle we use a square rotated by 45° for the cutting section so that we only need '/' and '\' characters to draw it. /\ / \ \ / \/ And we use '_' character for ...

Sriotchilism O'ZaicIn this challenge you will write a piece of text which when viewed from two different angles will create two different programs. The first program will be the first non-space character in every column of the string, or a space if no such character exists, in the order of the columns. This is ou...

Q: Mutate my DNA sequence

WhitehotWhen translating DNA into proteins, the ribosomes read the sequence of DNA nucleotides 3 by 3. Each set of 3 nucleotides is called a codon, and each codon encodes for an amino acid, with some redundancies. Here's the conversion table used by most organisms (table is read left, top, right): Huma...

Can I steal someone (preferably a mod) for quick test of my chatbot?

@cairdcoinheringaahing Yeah, sure.
(Unless you need a CGCC mod.)
((Still weird calling it that.))
Any user works really, though I might have to give you access here
@wizzwizz4 It'll always be PPCG to me :P

@UnrelatedString C-INTERCAL's character encoding is the union of UTF-8 and Latin-1; you probably don't want to know what happens in the ambiguous cases
(actually, I don't think there are any ambiguous cases for characters it recognises; the "you probably don't want to know" is because the encoding you use for a particular character matters sometimes)

is there any way to solve \lambda_1 e^{y - \lambda_1 e^y} (1 - \lambda_1 e^y ) + \lambda_2 e^{y - \lambda_2 e^y} (1 - \lambda_2 e^y ) = 0 in software?
I want to solve it for y
the lambda variables are greater than 0
9:52 PM
Of note, it requires you to have a particular sudo config setup, but worth updating sudo nonetheless

Well thanks for clearing that up
