Reading a crypto paper but having to google every second Greek character makes me feel so dumb ๐Ÿ˜… I just want to implement it, not to become fluent in Greek! ๐Ÿคฃ

Even worse, now I'm beginning to call my variables "zeta" etc., but I guess that's why the authors gave them such non-descriptive names in the first place, naming is hard and there just weren't better ones.

@sebx2a every time I have to read academic papers (usually cs/math papers because of degree), I end up revising different sections of the Greek alphabet

@pete @rohan Don't give them any ideas ๐Ÿ˜†

I know a physicist who uses Cyrillic as his third character set once the first two are exhausted ๐Ÿคฃ

Otoh, is a modern language, I can probably just use the Greek characters from the paper ๐Ÿ˜œ

@sebx2a @pete if I ever see emojis being used in an academic paper, I might just poke my eyes out because why live at that point

@rohan @pete Then for the sake of your eyes better not get into sentiment analysis ๐Ÿ˜ถ

@sebx2a @rohan "once the first two are exhausted" โ†god help you.

@verretor @sebx2a @rohan The complete set: ๐“‚ธ ๐“‚น ๐“‚บ

๐“ค is your god.

@pete @rohan @sebx2a
this would be great, finally a use for all the differently colored heart emojis

@orionwl @pete @rohan @sebx2a great right up until you get security holes because the implemented was color blind

@ajtowns @pete @rohan @sebx2a yes exactly good point, it took some effort to come up with absolutely the worst and most inaccessible idea ๐Ÿ˜€

@ajtowns @pete @rohan @sebx2a
we should use different kinds of fruit instead !
say, these 8 symbols are easy enough to distinguish even by shape alone:
๐Ÿ‡ ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ‰ ๐ŸŠ ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿฅฅ

@orionwl @pete @rohan @sebx2a add ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ and you should have tiktok on board

@orionwl @ajtowns @rohan @sebx2a Some bitcoiner you are.

(ok, so admittedly that last one is contaminated with rice...)

@pete @orionwl @rohan @sebx2a I'm a bit concerned that you seem to have listed a snowflake as a kind of meat

@ajtowns @orionwl @rohan @sebx2a oh, you mean ๐Ÿฅ? That's the emoji for fish cakes.

@pete @orionwl @ajtowns @rohan How dare you presenting lizards as food?! I thought you were one of us! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

@pete @rohan @sebx2a how is it worse? There is better support for emoji than for hieroglyph nowadays.

@sebx2a Ahhhh so I'm not alone. I started doing math every day in the hope that I would learn all the hieroglyphs.
