    It was the night before Christmas, and the Anderson family was settling in for the night.

  • So you wanna read SF short stories

    SF writers often write short stories that end up published in various compilations, which makes it hard to track them all if you’re the completionist type.

  • Estimating anime difficulty from subtitles

  • Resources for self-teaching Japanese

    Hi! So I’ve been self-teaching japanese for a while now and I think some of the resources I’ve built over the years may be of interest for people, so I’ll centralize them here. I will also add a couple of recommendations, but I’ll try to keep it light. I’ll highlight the stuff I produced with…

  • Playing around with GPT2

    So lately I’ve been spending a relative amount of time toying with GPT2, who made the headlines about producing text so believable that it was considered dangerous (GPT2 is the toned down version).
