According to the ISW, the casualty ratio in northern Kharkov is now 8 Russians to 1 Ukrainian. 😂 Fuckers, go home. I guess this explains the renewed interest in terrorism though.

@psychology

Why do you think that aggression is so tightly associated with frustration? This does not seem like an adaptive response, despite being widely cross-cultural.

People studying brains: "We found no correlation between number of neurons and IQ."*

People talking about AI: "If we just add more nodes to our deep neural network we are surely going to create a super-mind!"

@j_bertolotti Okay but hear me out here. We know that in the animal kingdom there is a correlation between brain cells per body mass and intelligence. I think what the AI people are talking about is getting up to the level of a human, dolphin, elephant but what you're talking about is a kind of plateau when we reach that point. In other words, brain cells do matter but with diminishing returns and where humans are already at the point of marginal (or worse) gains. You know what I mean?

@j_bertolotti (Not that I'm advocating that techbros burn the planet for more fake neurons to make ugly art and chat bots. 😆 Just trying to be fair.)

@j_bertolotti Yes, absolutely. I meant to say I see your point on that but got lost in my rebuttal.

Okay, I finished reading the Majjhima Nikāya this morning. That means I'm approximately half way done with the Pali Canon of I started in October. Next up is the Samyutta Nikāya, which academics say is the oldest layer in the collection.

@ReadingFaithfully_org Any tips on how to organizing reading on SN? I don't think I can read one entire sutra per day since some are huge, but then some sections are tiny...

apodoxus,
@apodoxus@mastodon.online avatar

@ReadingFaithfully_org Alright, this is smart. I will go with this, based on time. Perfect. Thank you. That was helpful. I didn't think of it myself! I'll take a look at your post.

Why can they not just send one e-mail? This is absurd with 72 messages in the same minute.

If you're arguing with someone then you're trying to convince them of something. If you're trying to convince them of something, then you're deferring to their judgement. If you don't have a reason to defer to their judgement, then this is just a form of approval-seeking and you're wasting your time.

I love maps. I'm kind of tired of world maps though. Well, maybe, unless they're upside down or something.

So, this is all while the US explicitly opposes specifically this as well. Seems like their attack dog is completely out of control now.

FUCK . I just replaced it with which worked immediately. Absolutely done with PA and it's fucking insane bugs and weird weird weird shit forever. Didn't even need to have to do anything with PipeWire. It just worked out of the box. Magic. Hope it stays this way. Cross your fingers. Fuck I miss ALSA days. That shit was easy.

Ticket: "[Employee] and I switched printers and now we both need printer drivers reinstalled"

Me: Why did you switch?

user: We just liked the way they looked.

TICKET Closed: switched printers back

@Nagaram Well, that's insensitive.

This looks decent for powering a Raspberry Pi or equivalent off POE. https://jcutrer.com/iot/howto-power-a-raspberry-pi-poe #RaspberryPi #POE #electronics

@ai6yr How does that work? It's got a boost converter in it or is there something special on the other end of the cable too?

TIL that you can redirect clear(1)'s standard output to a file and the use cat on the file to clear the screen.

$ clear > foo
$ cat foo

$ clear > /tmp/foo
