I'm really not sure why so many people seem to think Slack/gitter/discord is a good place for a community.
I am trying to search the Fractal (https://fractal.build) Slack to see if there are any recommended solutions for something I'm trying to do. I've found some people with what appear to be similar questions, but it's impossible to tell if anyone's answered the question because the discussions aren't threaded.
Chat logs make poor reference material.

So iOS will randomly turn my WiFi back on after I’ve explicitly turned it off, but even after having been home for an hour it’s still not connected to my home network?
Is this a UI bug that’s causing Control Center to tell me the WiFi is on when it’s actually off (because I turned it off)?

tqdm is such an amazingly useful python library, I feel like I am on the verge of being actually furious about not knowing about it until like a month ago for some reason https://github.com/tqdm/tqdm
Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
galaxies of words! this is the coolest visualization of word meanings that a neural net learned from the internet
