Pinned ping

more Zeno of Elea shitposting 

Sorry, before I can meet you free-speechers halfway, it seems like I have to meet you half of halfway. But in order to do that, I'd need to meet you an eighth of the way, and you see I'm just swamped contemplating the increasingly fractional ways that I would have to meet you before I can make even the slightest progress, so I'm afraid it's a paradox.

finally ripped away from goDaddy, who ate the registrar that ate my original registrar, bluerazor.

namecheap will do for this year.

touring a house tomorrow that I might buy. my life is weird right now.

hmm. After field-stripping and cleaning this keyboard, it still seems the LED controller is having a really hard time doing its thing. I may need to look for a new linux-friendly mechanical keyboard.

With the Document API you'll be able to better inspect and *physically change/reorder* comments and line breaks; detect and preserve "doc" comments; put comments and formatting in some places Jankson did not previously preserve; and deserialize full nested generics and records.

Seriously though, you can:
* Ask unreasonable jankson questions
* Send issues too small for an Issue
* Be lazy and send issues big enough for an Issue
* Contribute to [badly needed!] documentation
* Contribute code
* Influence the design of a major rework

I was so close to nAPs, but I missed it. Guess I'll have to work on the Document API instead.

when the creator of octocat adventures* speaks, you listen. David Oreilly is dead on.

"uefi requires operating systems to be digitally signed." unless it doesn't. Come on people.

honestly by the time you've finished explaining how malware works the information is out of date. At a survey level of study, just don't.

...they just included "rainbow tables" in a list of malware. This is what I mean by "steady stream of constantly, slightly wrong information"

question gremlins are "IT Essentials" exercises, which is a constant stream of banal and slightly wrong computer info

Penultimate wave of question gremlins. Just one small wave later this week.

data cables subtoot 

* sending both + and - versions for your signal improves reliability even for a serial interface

* you need a ground; if possible, both a chassis ground and a signal ground. Signal ground helps you detect what's effectively a DC offset between the endpoints, so you can figure out what's a + or - voltage at all

* Power requires two wires. Even if you already have a + wire somewhere and two ground wires, you now need a +0V wire that can handle a return path from your -12V or -48V or whatever. Optional but nice to have.

* sending the data through the wire can induce a current in other wires. The less orthogonal that magnetic field is, the less crosstalk, which absurdly means that the more twisted your twisted pairs are, the higher the CAT.

* Now that you've got a good half-duplex cable, add two more wires for full duplex

* To further reduce the negative effects of crosstalk, mix up the wire pairings.

* Oops that's an ethernet cable
