Birdsite has gone really weird. There's now a very clear pattern of looking to get upset about something. Nobody cares about John Wayne. He's long dead. Ghostbusters 2016 was shit. It's not complicated.


@LibertyPaulM Not necessarily, but studies have shown there is a tendency to contract Arch-itis. Symptoms include: Telling everyone you run Arch, screenshots of your i3WM setup, and telling /r/ubuntu what losers they are.

Treatment is simple and involves stating the following: "You have demonstrated you can follow written instructions."

running an emulator is just some sand dreaming of being some other kind of sand

@fribbledom Like anything it has to be done well, you can have some sort of internal logic to it and the reader/viewer can get into that. It's how stories have worked for centuries.

I do agree with you though. For me the most egregious example was LOST.

This person sold their VHS player on eBay and got a surprise letter in the mail:

@mwlucas @phessler 'Artistically correct' sounds a lot better than 'by design', I think I will start using that.

"The restored backup has simply written a 1TB file full of zeros."

*The system administrator pushed his glasses to the bridge of his nose and looked at the IT manager*

"This artistically correct."


@phessler @mwlucas I've heard it's very easy to get into, but you never really know what's happening and sometimes it goes terribly wrong for no obvious reason

@mwlucas Systemd erotica sounds equally terrifying and intriguing

I mean, obviously there is little risk of it exploding and irradiating half of Europe, but still. Omelettes and eggs and all that.

Interesting reading about the solar farm at CHNPP; an interesting window into the challenges of renewables.

It is 1MW output; 0.001 of a single RBMK-1000 channel reactor, and that output is nowhere near stable.

Spent some time playing with OpenAI's GPT-2 neural net, which, delightfully, writes fan fiction and generates very suspect science facts.

Saw an RX580 with my own eyes today. GPUs really have got comically huge. I mean, it's fucking massive.

Again a Ruby OOM and CPU runaway on my host. I absolutely cannot figure out what's causing it.

The school of art, 1yr ago today. It's that time of year when I'm really getting quite sick of the snow, as pretty as it is.

It's pissing down with rain today.
