“Lyxal?”

Lyxal is a Homeopathic medicine indicated for the treatment of the following conditions:

Migraine

Nausea and vomiting

Nasal congestion

Urticaria and angioedema

Stress & anxiety

Lyxal Directions

Lyxal is available in liquids (solutions) and tablets and is to be taken orally.

The drug is to be taken as prescribed by the doctor.

In the case of children, the drug is to be administered under the supervision of a doctor.

Maybe, the warning doesn't show the "why"

memories to its offspring, but the offspring are not able to fully develop or maintain the memories themselves. Each "copy" of the worm only has a portion of the original worm's personality.

For example, if the worm was a warrior, the copy may only remember the warrior's identity, but not its own. The copy will no longer be able to care for itself, and will have to create a new host. The worm would then place its memory in the new host and repeat the process.

Current belief is that this process is how the Lyxal developed their ability to "Link" with other beings. A worm would "Link" with

@hyper-neutrino :P

The Lyxal are a highly intelligent species, with a culture that has been around for thousands of years. Though they have had many names, the most common being "Lyxel" is a word that was created because of their fascination with language. They can be particularly inscrutable when it comes to other species and their cultures, and most other races endeavor to learn as much about them as possible due to this tendency. As such, Lyxal often end up in more contact with non-Lyxal than with each other. This is especially true since the Lyxal are rarely seen as a whole people but rather as individual

> or at least learning how to pronounce their name
Huh, it actually seems to understand what it generated

> Are Lyxals good or evil?

Lyxals are not inherently good or evil to humans, but most are neutral with a few being good and a few being bad, but with good and evil often defined by context rather than the species as a whole. Most Lyxals have no idea what "good" or "evil" means, which is why they're so hard to classify.

Lyxal is Chaotic Neutral? Yeah, that tracks :P

Fastest way to kill a service: charge for it when it was free

i feel like they're banking on schools buying subscriptions but i feel like there is no school the administration of which would pay for that

wow

like
kahoot is something *individual teachers* use
not something *schools* use

Well, every service needs a source of income

and if there's one class of people that can't pay for that shit it's teachers

@Bubbler Yes, but by charging for something that was free, you'll piss off people who used it for free, and lose their business because they won't pay
Either start charging from the beginning, or find another thing to charge for. Don't move a service behind a paywall

12:59 AM
@lyxal 😮😯😱😪😢😭

ads + freemium to remove them would probably still piss people off but it would at least probably cause less damage (at least I feel like it would)

they could easily charge for just having more versatility added onto the base functionality

Ngl it feels reminiscent of lastpass starting to charge to use mobile and desktop

@UnrelatedString My school district and probably a lot of others probably would, they already pay for Discovery and Brainpop and stuff
It's probably less cheap wholesale

@cairdcoinheringaahing brb gonna go make that my main bio

Do any golfing langs have Python's iter(callable, sentinel) builtin?

A functional programming equivalent is to create an infinite stream and then take until a specific value is found. I guess Husk and/or osabie can do that, though not exactly a builtin
Jelly's # is also similar but different

1:30 AM
⁼1# would be equivalent if callable returned successive integers, but otherwise they're pretty different

Factor's follow is very similar but takes the previous value as input. Also it's far from a golflang
Do you have a use case in mind?

Not really. I seem to remember Husk having a similar builtin, but I can't find it and it got me curious
> Examples
Get random numbers until zero is reached
That seems familiar... :P

actually the "follow" version (monadic callable) might have more uses than a niladic callable, but then you can simply add an overload to the while quick, so if a condition is a nilad, the loop stops at that value

1:45 AM
@cairdcoinheringaahing Ω or the takew overload of ↑ is probably what you're thinking of but they're not that close to iter since they aren't built to work with stateful operations the same way since there are no stateful operations

@lyxal I've noticed over the last like five years that their premium version has steadily stolen features from the main one, and almost all development has focused on it. Honestly not surprised they went in this direction.

@cairdcoinheringaahing so then what happens if you have nested functions?

@lyxal Hmm… It almost sounds like Caird will never give you up, let you down, run around, or desert you.

> Why is Caird so Caird?

Caird is named after the artist Robert Caird. He is also the patron spirit of artists. This is why his spirit shows up here.

What does the Caird spirit look like?

In a picture he looks like a tall man with long hair wearing a white tunic(robe).

How did Caird get his powers?

Caird is very old. He got his powers from other people who came before him. He has a lot of experience.

What does his spirit do?

Caird's spirit acts like an artist. He loves to paint pictures. He also has a great sense of humor.

This is all fact

BTW, can you help with my assessment?

Except "Caird is named after the artist Robert Caird" I have never heard of Robert Caird
