“Room on a broom” is a popular kids book. I wonder if AI could match up to it

Google is your friend.

There was another group inside Google that shipped something based on Genode.

The most valuable thing for the community to extract from projects like these would be capability based drivers, ideally on top of seL4.

The choice to not use seL4 as a base for Fuchsia is also confusing. It lends credence to the idea that Fuchsia is a project to retain engineers, rather than to build a solid OS. I think it would be possible for a team like the Fuchsia team to build a better platform than Genode, but starting from scratch without seL4 is unlikely to produce anything better. They definitely didn't come up with a better security model, or IPC performance.


The wording part is my fault - I didn't think about on vs in, in my mind it would be on the walls and stuff / kitchen is the insides of the room - but I can see how that's maybe not appropriate.

The exact quote is :

>But then she noticed something even stranger - her kitchen was covered in a thick layer of butter.

vs

>Butter went everywhere! On the ceiling, on the floor, on the refrigerator, on the toaster

Your phrasing sounds like something I'd read to my son and I could see him repeating all the items and adding some of his own.


Well the ones with li-ion batteries ought to last at least 2000 cycles, or about 6 years with a cycle each day, but there are lots of mid tier models being made with lifepo4s now, and those last like 6000 cycles, so there is far more breathing room. They're also cheaper so you may be able to more easily break even.

devs "hate" excel because you have to reference by col/row (C10 = tax rate, etc). But few devs know that you can name cells (and ranges and tables). Just to the left of the formula bar you'll see a textbox with the default name of the cell (C10). Just delete C10 and call it "tax_rate" and now you can reference "tax_rate" in all your formulas.

Only if you make it an NFT.

Does the cost of the natural gas power plant include the green house gas costs it is emitting?

It's a recommended practice (I hate the term "best", everything depends).

Why? Quite easy actually - having random passwords is better than reusing the same everywhere. Random passwords are impossible to remember by a regular human, hence you need a password manager. Using a local file as a password manager poses a usability/availability risk (you have to sync it yourself, you have to back it up yourself, you have to make it available on all devices without putting it at risk, you have to secure it, etc.), hence cloud-based password managers are better for the average person, especially coupled with MFA for critical accounts (banks, email, etc.). If you're a highly technical or highly security conscious person, or under threat, the equation changes of course, but the recommendation for a cloud-based password manager isn't meant to apply to everyone, just most people.


You might not want to emulate elite endurance athletes in that they get too much of a good thing…. That kind of training puts you at risk of atrial fibrillation.

It’s not gatekeeping to value the outcomes of work created this way less than you would from the mind of a human.

Saying that I agree with you in that I see this technology as a tool that can be used by humans to make amazing things. No one really has yet as the outputs have just been blunted, sloppy things. But if I’m an artist I see these tools as the latest tool to help make things.


Find a way to connect this to Zapier and the Universe might open up a wormhole.

Many of those things were already present in ISO Extended Pascal and UCSD Pascal.

> not just the usual errors, inaccuracies and "common deviations" that you find in every C compiler, and that force you to secure libraries with #ifdefs.

And extension keywords for microcontrollers specific features, intrisics for CPU instructions, DSP specific capabilities,....

Yeah I am already used that what goes for Pascal gets another weigth when placed against C.


> Be real, copyright/attribution is only one complaint, a tiny part of the sudden hatred against AI art/creativity.

When the artists whose work was stolen to train these models are compensated for that work then maybe its a "tiny part". Until then it is taking peoples work and using it to create an ultimate competitor in their own market that they cannot compete with. They now have to compete against themselves and they haven't even been paid for that "privilege".


You can also inspect the source and delete the link to the stylesheet if you want to experience it yourself.

You're still stuck paying borrow fees and posting collateral, potentially forever.

There were indeed loopholes in variant records you could misuse for all kinds of tricks, and Wirth was aware of these and finally replaced the concept by type extension. Instead of "not possible" I should better have stated "not officially supported". My point was instead, that Lisa Pascal added concepts, which were official part of the language specification, from which we can conclude, that (also) from the view of Apple original Pascal was not suited for the endeavor. Others came to the same conclusion (see e.g. the famous paper by Kernighan), and even Wirth added features similar to the ones found e.g. in Lisa Pascal to his Modula-2 language.

I just migrated over to 1Password and deleted my LastPass account. Better late than never, I suppose.

It was surprisingly easy- for all of LastPass's faults, at least they don't use shady vendor lock-in practices (like making data export needlessly difficult). And 1Password has a LastPass-specific import page, which made the migration dead-easy.


Mathematical concepts are in the public domain. The art used to train these models are not

Soon enough (2030+) someone's going to solve NIB batteries (mainly sodium refining, I guess) and a bit heavier, but dirt cheap sodium ion batteries are going to be everywhere.

So in respect to the ad unit, the argument is that they have grown to such a size that brands (from mom and pop's restaurant, to coke, nike) are overspending for the service. If you read on some of the ad tech blogs (not my specialty) there seems to be a strong case there is rampant fraud in metrics and what customers (the brands) are actually getting when they spend their ad dollars with googles many, many platforms. This doesn't seem to be unique with google, meta and others seems to do similar, but google is the big boy on the block. The anti-trust thing is required (in the governments eyes) as there is not a viable alternative, at least for organic search, for these brands.

The value to consumers is hypothetically that splitting it up will increase competition in the ad tech space. This will in turn lower ad spends from brands and hopefully push their real metrics to be more accurate, less fraud, etc. This will in turn lower advertising spend for these brands will which theoretically end up in lower costs to consumers.

Some other random thoughts. 1. Why would google (or any of them) make a good faith effort to stamp out fraud when it is lining their pockets? They are so big their really isn't a strong alternative and brands can't choose to just not play. 2. Why should the dominate browser effectively drive the privacy/tracking conversation for the largest ad tech player? This is an inherent conflict of interest and is unlikely to lead to better privacy for the consumer. 3. Why should a company that benefits from tracking/analytics be driving the development of one of the top 2 OS for mobile. On face value we are heading towards a world where buyers have to pay a premium for privacy (arguably iPhone, debatable), but android (largely budget phones) have no such or at least inferior protections. Why would they ever strengthen consumer privacy on mobile if its lining their pockets now.


> often

Citation needed. Which is the point of the person you're responding to. For an untrained person to even get to what is considered 'high' intensity in their first workout is not common.

I do all sorts of training with trained and new people alike and have never seen rhabdo in person. I know it can happen, but I think the stories stick out because it's so uncommon.


D might be what you're looking for.

It allows the military industrial complex to keep running without soldiers at risk.

an energy company paying customers extra? lolllllll. if anything they're gonna find a way to charge you for the privilege of giving them power

> Coast Guard - Coasties (I mean, sure. Welcome, our DoT brethren)

During peacetime, the US Coast Guard is now part of the Department of Homeland Security. (It was part of the Department of Transportation fro 1967 - 2003.)


That's because eaf-browser just uses chrome in a docker container, does screencaps -> ocr, then runs spellcheck, plus chatgpt on top for sanity checks, then copies it all back from an aws instance.

I remembered that and before I learned more about the breach and was feeling "breaches happen" about things (I have strong master password) my thought was to use that to update passwords by age... but they actually removed the feature! That seemed so user hostile it made me mad enough that migrating somewhere where I can work with password age became my goal. Then as I've learned more about the breach, their design and their response it's just put wind in my sails.

Bitwarden isn't much better, but they do have a cli technical users can cobble something together. (I ultimately decided to skip on Bitwarden also)


The Android app for pass, and the required gpg app, are pretty clunky and not very friendly to work with (and the Windows desktop experience is not great either).

After some time with pass, I switched to a more integrated solution, with KeePassXC on desktops and Keepass2Android on mobile, with sync via OneDrive.
