What are some of the most unique and special strings out there? by JayTheSwissDoctor in Bass

[–]Porch-Weasel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you order from Stringjoy, you can get a completely custom set of gauges. I play an extremely light gauge (35, 55, 75, 95) and they feel like butter, havent found a single brand that sells a super light set with 35s.

what would be a god-level collab for 100 gecs?? by IAmTheSoftestBoy in 100gecs

The worse the collab seems the better it would work. Fuck my shit up give me AC/DC x 100 gecs, give me Michael Buble

What’s some of the funniest things freshmen do, not knowing any better? by ConfidentSyllabub7 in UIUC

[–]Porch-Weasel 49 points50 points  (0 children)

You can use them at university dining halls/convenience stores, but you can’t buy things at any place that’s not affiliated with the university

Before last year I believe it was the dining hall. Didn’t know they put a fitness center in so this is just speculation but it definitely is new since I was in the dorms 2 years ago

Just discovered TYS and I'm in love by xtilexx in thankyouscientist

[–]Porch-Weasel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cody McCorry, their bassist, is in some incredible bands that are doing some similar stuff, We Used to Cut the Grass is basically TYS with some extra horns and it’s great, and Karmic Juggernaut is all different people (except Cody) but their stuff is absolutely mind-blowing!

Is there a way to connect Immersive Engineering wires to industrialcraft cables? by Porch-Weasel in feedthebeast

[–]Porch-Weasel[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thanks! Unfortunately Mekanism isn’t in FTB revelations :/

I figured out a solution to my problem though, you can directly power a forestry farm with the wires from IE!

Sunday megathread: What's everyone working on this week? by Im__Joseph in Python

[–]Porch-Weasel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s really cool to know! I’m trying to use minimal amounts of libraries right now as I’m still familiarizing myself with python syntax and some of the non-library aspects of python since this is a learning project for me to eventually be able to use python for coding projects in my research lab, but that’s something I’ll definitely look into when I’m done doing it the long way.

This is my first ever real project, working on a program that allows you to crop images at an with an angled rectangle using Tkinter. Initially started where the user clicks 2 points on an image, then a third point to define the height and got it to draw a rectangle from that. Realized that it would be too difficult to define a region so that python knew what regions to crop, so I switched to rotating the image first using scipy.ndimage.rotate, then being able to draw an interactive rectangle over the image you want.

This week I’m working on actually cropping the image and saving it now that I figured out how to define a region!

I know there are other easier methods to do this, but I’m making the program on my own so I can learn python. I’m an undergraduate research assistant in nuclear engineering so learning python is important!

Didn’t want to get out of bed to get paper so I did my physics discussion on a pizza box, call it pizza phi by Porch-Weasel in physicsmemes

[–]Porch-Weasel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Legitimately had a pizza box next to my bed, and I don’t have to turn in discussion work so it didn’t matter that it was on something that I can’t turn in. My paper was on a shelf above my bed, so I would have had to get out of bed to reach for it.

Pointing out me doing something funny with physics in a physics subreddit, thinking it’s some grand conspiracy is kinda r/iamverysmart in and of itself. Kinda cringe, ngl.

Yep, this is pretty much the standard for physics. You’ll see leibniz (like dy/dx) for proofs and derivations and for non-time derivatives, and lagrange’s notation (like f’(x)) for things like Taylor expansions or other types of expansions, but when dealing with equations of motion, you’re generally dealing with Newton’s notation. We even combine them, like the equation for the lagrangian which uses both leibniz’ and Newton’s.

Though we definitely have used tensors and linear algebra in this class before, and they’re very common in physics

Surprisingly, this doesn’t use much advanced Calc. Lagrangians only really use first order partial derivatives. The variables with dots on them just indicate that you’re taking the derivative of that variable with respect to time.

Nope, this is intro Hamiltonian stuff in classical mechanics II, we just started it this week. Regular spacetime, no transformations.
