hey radio nerd friends

I have a question

this random bluetooth device ALWAYS shows up as available for pairing on my laptop/phone/etcs pairing screen

its called bkt11 and I can literally find no reference to such a device online, its fine since im not pairing anything to it

but I'm trying to figure out what the fuck is this thing lol

any tips for trying to find a rogue bluetooth device?

Sorry i'm incompatible with Node v16.3.0
today is the anniversary of Steven Universe season 2, episode 7: "Keeping It Together"!!!

can't believe kar is like, on this website rn, that's transcendent

@cosine Your MOM A handful of fun eval updates:- Long overdue update, i wanted to use ?. so we're now using node v16.3.0- i set up a tiny bit of boilerplate to bring the Hijinks model to notifications as well - unless it's treated specially, a random function is called with the notification as the argument. i hope this will encourage some more interactive activities, which i've been interested in seeing for a while- To t3st the above, uh... your mom jokes?!!! :PPPP

This program:
((typeof [this, null, (typeof 131), 168, ]))
... evaluates to...
"object"
What a surprise!
something just got printed to the console, don't tell cosine
This program:
((-(this[undefined] | ((+[true, ]) ^ 9))))
... evaluates to...
-9
What a surprise!
This program:
([[], (function(w, ) { return false; }), (!null), ])
... evaluates to...
,function(w, ) { return false; },true
What a surprise!

@eval This is a chart of expression depth versus evaluation result for arbitrary_js_fact.

Depth 1 is boring, because it's only literals and `this`. We give depth 2 half of the time so that we will likely find a good result (16 tries). We give 3 1/6 chance because it has slightly higher good/boring, and for the remaining chance we evenly distribute up to 15. Higher than 15 is slow to generate and evaluate for unreadable programs and no better results.

Of all the webcomics i read, a handful have <link rel="next"> pointing to the *html document* of the next strip. Some don't even have that. *None* have <link rel="next | preload | prefetch"> (probably prefetch is the appropriate choice) for the following strip's *image*.

This seems to me to be a no-brainer. While you're reading the strip, the next strip could be loading. Even on the best of connections, often an image load will hit a hiccup, take a few seconds, and interrupt reading flow.

In local politics, i have noticed a pattern of appealing to a local exceptionalism. That is, the belief that global/national/state movements and statistics do not apply to a community (town, university). Think something like, "but police here are very nice and have had no incidents." Often the excuse is implicitly about the community being white, suburban, "progressive", small, etc.

Does anyone have an actual term for this (so i can search it) or resources about it i could look into?

This program:
~[]
... evaluates to...
-1
What a surprise!

given the size of bill wurtz's discography, it was bold of him to just release a song that is unquestionably better than anything else he's ever released

Weird JS fact 

Did you know that ---new function(v) {this.a = v} (2).a evaluates to a SyntaxError

Feel free to @ me if you ever notice @eval stops working. Sorry about the last few interruptions.

Feel free to @ me when @eval stops working. Strangely, thing used to work without interruption for months, but now it's failed twice. Added another null check and we'll see if that helps i suppose.
Anyways, "go now" buddy
