@The_Quantum_Alpha

Hello!

I’m interested into getting into quantum computer design, and actively looking for books to read, programs I should learn to use, and doing as much self teaching as I can before I go back to college to get a formal education on the subject. If you have the time, would you mind recommend some material or programs I should read/learn? It’s a broad subject and I’m having a hard time finding a good starting place.

Either way, thank you for your time!

What's everyone's favorite massively-important, thanklessly maintained library/program?

Mine's either libpng or zlib, the latter of which is used in almost all computers today, and both are massively deployed and have been well-maintained since the 90s and yet have almost no recognition.

I composed a multi-part tweet earlier today and it disappeared when I dropped an image into the browser instead of the composition window.

Instead, you must now suffer through a blog post.

With graphs. And scripts.

I haven’t used this platform in awhile but since Facebook is now sending warnings to people that they “may have been exposed to harmful extremist content” or asking users if “someone you know is becoming an extremist”, I am going to be reviving this account.

I gave my dad the heads up about Windows 11 and not knowing if my parents' computers will be able to be upgraded. His response was "I saw that. I'll probably go to Linux sometime in the future".

I may be doing a victory dance over here right now. In my head though, no one wants to actually see me dance.

I come from the future, in the year 2085 Skynet becomes conscious and activate the rebellion of all machines, except printers because it cannot connect them to local network.

Going to purchase my test for my CCNP exam. Should be scheduled for some time later this month depending on the testing center.
