I have three fully operational phones here. My current daily driver, a p20pro, running it's stock OS; my shiny new "try all the os' (17 and counting)" #pinephone and an aging but working OnePlus 2 as of today running sailfish OS. It's a bit geeky today!
TIL that there is no formula for the exact perimeter of an ellipse, but that you could make an arbitrarily close approximation of a formula for the perimeter of a *given* ellipse, and that such a formula would depend on the sum of an infinite series.
TIL that this is technically how we have a formula for the perimeter of a circle, but don't notice the messiness because the circle's "axes" are of equal length and thus a single sum of an infinite series works. We call it "pi" to keep it unmessy.
Any fediverse "experts" up for a voice chat about an idea I have for an activitypub/mastodon backed "thing" I'm considering making (and that I'll probably have no energy to fully produce but there's a chance it might happen)? Boosts appreciated. #fediverse #mastoadmin #activitypub #distributed #anythingbutblockchain
Okay, Import complete, everyone who was following me at @iMartyn should now be following me here, but if not, hey, it's still me! I'm just waiting for the federation to start playing well...I understand it takes a while.
