I learnt that pulse width modulation produces flicker -- imagine a 50% duty cycle of half on, half off -- whereas the more general pulse density modulation does not -- imagine the same amount of total on/off time, but divided more finely.
AAA+++ would gorge on again
This dude liberated Nafplio (from the Ottoman Empire) and then was imprisoned in Palamidi Fortress *in the city he liberated* (and now the capital of Greece, for a while) for being a traitor by the new (and 17-year-old) Bavarian King Otto of Greece! Shit sucks.
To be clear, he was extremely anti-Bavaria and a proponent of an independent Greece. He was only freed due to public outcry.
What a life.
I went into this guy's prison cell! It looked ghastly, with almost no light. More like solitary confinement, really.

The "authentic self" is relatively new -- Hans-Georg Moeller on Authenticity v/s Sincerity in Art - YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIqtMqhZlo8
Via David / curtain lurkers
It's an odd thesis IMO because when was authenticity taken seriously?

If you're at serious risk of suicide and are confined to a psychiatric hospital or prison, you can be put in clothing which is extremely difficult to rip or tear so you can't use it to harm yourself.
Let us alone. What is it that will last?
All things are taken from us, and become
Portions and parcels of the dreadful past.
Wearisome the maiden growing,
Her existence sad and hopeless,
Thus alone to live for ages
In the infinite expanses

Argues for a bootstrap-like reusable css rather than a css zen garden-like reusable HTML, but indirectly also sort of explains css pre processors like less to me, because they’re very useful for the zen garden approach but not so useful for the bootstrap approach.
Simple recipe using the butter + soy sauce combo. Turned out really nice -- comfortingly salty and creamy.
Also, it's hardly a recipe -- just mix the melted butter with some soy sauce in the pan, blend to emulsify, and add some pasta water to taste. Oh, and cook pasta for the last minute or so in the pan to get it nice and glazed.
Interesting discussion of various housing costs. London a depressing outlier.
“Emancipatory politics must always destroy the appearance of a ‘natural order’, must reveal what is presented as necessary and inevitable to be a mere contingency, just as it must make what was previously deemed to be impossible seem attainable.” – Mark Fisher
This quote from the comments reified the vague feelings of unease I have at the doom and gloom around climate change. If you truly believe that nothing can be done, then you will do nothing.

Really awesome VS Code extension which lets you scrub back and forward along a trace of Amiga demo execution to see DMA, all registers, copper list activity, etc. One of the few things that would get me to use VS Code... if it weren't also Windows-only!

Routing in SPAs where the route transitions are driven by the shared store, as opposed to the less-flexible model taken by vue-router which links routes to components.
Friendcatchers are part of this. Friendcatchers are small, contained lists, essays or apps that solve resonant (emotional, relevant), tractable, underserved problems.
One way of doing it is writing in depth specialised guides. The beginners guides to everything have already been written. What’s missing is more advanced content. This sort of content tends to stand out and be highly appreciated in places like Reddit and Hacker news.
Another way of doing it is by sharing polarising, unconventional ideas you have. These ideas will repulse those that are close minded towards your ideas and attract more people like you.

From the London Machine Learning meetup today. They predict the function that will fit a set of values using a transformer architecture. It approaches state of the art (which are GA-based approaches) but is much faster than them.
Some interesting discussion of the typical approach which is to evolve a "skeleton", which is the formula without any constants, and then fit constants to it. They don't use a skeleton and achieve better results, but only within the domain for which the model was trained
GAs tend to over-fit, so this being immune from that results in simpler formulae.
