Another day at the tech debt mines. The sunlight will not reach this low – dig, dig, dig the hole.

It just hit me: how do creationists explain the existence of dogs? Especially the fact that there are different breeds of dogs.

deshipu,
@deshipu@fosstodon.org avatar

@stfn It varies, obviously, but one explanation that I've heard is that God created all the varieties of dogs, in potentia, and dog breeders are just discovering them by trying different combinations.

Listen to architects (actual, not software), listen to librarians. They know how systems work.

The wielder of the tool should be its master. Not the designer or creator of the tool, not its seller, not the owner of the tool, not even the configurator. Whoever holds the tool decides how it is to be used and what it is exactly that it does.

No "nudging", no dark patterns, no tricks, no behind the back "improvements", and no lies. No "I'm sorry Dave but I can't do that."

Anything else leads to complete chaos.

I spent at least four hours today trying to get a parallel ILI9341 displlay to work with the Lolin S3 Mini board and CircuitPython.

When I got it working 3 years ago with a Pi Pico, I found a couple of things – the resistor you have to move for 8-bit mode, the fact that pins are broken out in reversed order. The usual.

But I have run out of ideas with this board. The logic analyzer captures look correct. The shape of the signal looks correct. The connections all check. Even tried S2 Mini.

When I got it working last time, I took notes and photos, so I can compare it with what I have now, and everything looks the same. Why won't it work?

Is there a name for the group of people who live in international cities (Berlin, London, New York, etc.), with disposable income, eat mostly hotel food, read airport books, and generally seem to have their own culture separate from the culture of the country they live in, but shared across the globe? It seems to me like the phenomenon should have a name by now.

EDIT: Just for clarity, I'm expressing surprise that an android app would have lossy PNG as an option, not at the idea of pre-compressing a PNG to make it lossy (generally by reducing the number of colors, but also by doing things like pixellating unimportant regions of an image, such as a desktop wallpaper). All techniques I enjoy using, as well.

@RL_Dane every format can be lossy if you do pre-processing that improves the compression...

All those GPUs are doing really is just multiplying matrices. Over and over again. Obviously, there is a lot of duplicated work – they keep multiplying the same matrices they did previously. That's a huge waste of energy.

Someone should just do all those multiplications once, and publish the results, so that everyone can just refer to that instead of wasting the energy repeating the computations uselessly.

Don't @ me.

I have just ordered a bunch of materials and tools for a project I want to work on next. Can't wait for it all to arrive in a few weeks, and be completely ignored, as I lose interest in that project.

so you wanna make a programming language? i recommend making a hashmap data type that can store any core type as both keys and values

"but isn't that just lua again" i hear you ask? yes. yes it is. there's a reason lua is so fucking good

deshipu,
@deshipu@fosstodon.org avatar

@eniko wait, lua can use hash maps as keys in hash maps?

deshipu,
@deshipu@fosstodon.org avatar

@eniko what happens when you add or remove items in the key map? Does it re-calculate the hash and re-insert it in the outer map, or is it hashing by the object id and doesn't care about the contents, and two maps are only considered equal when they are the same map?

@eniko thanks, that makes sense

I got jealous of all those people having ribbons on their badges at conferences, so I decided to make my own, but blinky. There are going to be a bunch of rainbow LEDs behind the text, and a coin battery.
