my greatest fear about ai isn't that it will be perfect and take over. it's that it will continue to be shitty, and propagate its creators' biases, but it will continue to be sold to governments and corporations as a solid black box that always tells the truth, and be treated as a perfect replacement for human judgment

@jorin "The Scientist and Engineer's Guide to Digital Signal Processing"

Its free and its the best at what it does. Can't recommend it enough, as long as you're not doing anything too weird, like writing non-power-of-two FFTs.
This book has singlehandedly motivated not just one hey-look-I-wrote-my-own-codec.

@proxy brb writing a C linker that dynamically fetches C shared libraries by DNS lookup their name as a URL and downloading it directly. I am not taking criticism at this time

Americans don't read this. You know you'll get upset 

holy shit the structure of the US government is so fucked. it is so fucking bad in every way. shittest way to structure a democracy since France's 3rd Republic. just so unbelievably nasty

Follow the profit motives, money trace, and only trust proper science. Of course it is very hard to tell what counts as proper.

Considering how many times we were intentionally mislead or straight out lied to by the industry, why do we still collectively believe their claims?

cyborg, magnetic implant 

I recently got a magnet implanted into one of my fingers. It's quiet small (~2x3mm) and strong enough to lift a paper clip or to send a laptop into standby when approaching it's lid sensor.

It's still healing, but I'm already able to feel magnetic fields like the fan in my laptop or the electric motor of a train.
One could say I acquired a new sense. Any ideas what else I could do with it?

mh, dreams 

I had one of those vivid, extremely convoluted, confusing, and intense dreams. It was about life and death, struggle, responsibility, love, and loss. I could even call it nightmare-ish at times. Hard to go into specifics.

[squints eyes] but what does that *mean*??

pinebook pro tip

i fucking figured it out holy shit y'all
i figured out why the DAC sounded like shit it was because it has this builtin effect called "Stereo Enhancement" and by default it's set to 5 (on a scale of 0-7) and basically it makes the audio sound like actual trash (on decent headphone drivers i guess. perhaps it makes it better for crap headphones idk). anyway you can disable it with

sudo amixer sset 'DAC Stereo Enhancement' 0

HOLY SHIT y'all the audio sounds fuckin normal now

This is an interesting approach to solving the walking problem in VR. Any system that allows free movement is going to have issues when the user's actual physical space comes into conflict with the rendered space

Instead of a solid platform, this system uses strings and pulleys to create a movable "ground" attached to the user's feet

anyway here's the cold take on "professionalism" it's really just what people say to mean you should act more cishet, white, and neurotypical

In Sweden it's generally not allowed to build things within 100m of the water. This is to protect both the freedom to roam and people's privacy. You can't roam up really close to someone's house and set up your tent there. But with those 100m, you can still roam near the water without intruding on someone's personal life.

@steph okay wait what the fuck is this

"Instead, most of the firmware ACPI functionality is provided in bytecode of ACPI Machine Language (AML), a Turing-complete, domain-specific low-level language, stored in the ACPI tables.[5] To make use of these tables, the operating system must have an interpreter for the AML bytecode."
