Banana cream pie with meringue The temperature is over 80 degrees here today and I thought it would be nice to have something cool. We don’t have any ice cream, but we did have a frozen pie shell. And a couple of bananas that should be used before they become too ripe.
Here are the Recipes I used: I made the Banana Cream Pie I recipe from All Recipes. That recipe is essentially the same as this one.
Backlinks 2020-05-24 Here are the Recipes I used: I made the Banana Cream Pie I recipe from All Recipes. That recipe is essentially the same as this one. Pretty easy work! We didn’t have any whipped cream, but that recipe uses egg yolks… leaving us with egg whites. This Better Homes & Gardens article about how to make meringue for pies provided instructions that worked perfectly! I thought it odd that the All Recipes pie recipe called for baking the pie, but once I added meringue, it made perfect sense to do so.
The Discworld Reading Order Guide 3.0 I enjoy reading (and writing) Fantasy, and I have never gotten around to reading Discworld. I plan to start soon. This Discworld Reading Order Guide 3.0 should be super handy. I had already planned to start with Guards! Guards!, so I guess I’m fine.

Microsoft using AI to generate code This demo of an ML model generating Python code is impressive, but I’d like to see someone unrelated to the project try it. This strikes me as a “self-driving car” kind of problem… it can look impressive for specific examples, but quickly break down. This is not to say that the demo isn’t cool or that this research has no value, but that I can imagine that this problem is only a tiny bit solved.
The Miracle Sudoku I’ll admit that I didn’t watch all 25 minutes of The Miracle Sudoku that has been traveling around social media, but I did watch more than I expected and quite enjoyed it. This is clearly a person who loves Sudoku and is very good at it. Also worth noting that the site he’s playing on, Cracking the Cryptic is a nice web implementation of Sudoku.

The problem is that some comparisons it does (as with times) can be incorrect. There’s an issue to use go-cmp instead, but they’re worried about backwards compatibility problems. I hope they make the change in some fashion, though.

The questions are fascinating and random. 2020-05-02 Name generators can be handy among Writing Tools, and Fantasy Name Generators is a useful site. I like how it generates lists of names. 2020-05-02 Behind the Name is one of the Writing Tools that is helpful for non-fantasy settings because it can tell you all about the names you’re using.
