Alright, here's my book* thread for 2021 – starting early this time, so I hopefully won't abandon it due to ETOOMANYBOOKS like last year's. Be warned that January is traditionally filled with fanfics and re-reads.
All tagged with #rixxReads for your muting convenience.
* books, papers, fanfics, etc etc
As promised, here starts the ill-advised series of me reading the #Python Standard Library documentation. First day: Built-In Functions, which I grouped by topic.
My personal highlight was learning about the two-argument version of iter(): https://rixx.de/blog/first-sunday-of-advent-built-in-functions/
Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

The grub emote got adopted by the community discord and I'm super happy about that.
The shadow doesn't extend to the background in the real emote, but exporting transparent drawings is hard.
Survived the commentary thing, and didn't go too badly, I think.
Going to do more of that tomorrow and the day after, and then hopefully not choke the commentary.
Talking and playing and reading chat at the same time is hard, but so much fun.
I'm going to commentate a speedrunning race on the weekend, so I'm going to stream more this week in an effort to remember how to talk in coherent sentences. https://twitch.tv/rixxian

@rixx The absurd [user] catches sight of a burning and frigid, transparent and limited fediverse in which nothing is possible but everything is given, and beyond which all is collapse and nothingness. [They] can then decide to accept such a fediverse and draw from it [...] strength, [...] refusal to hope, and the unyielding evidence of a life without consolation.
