Pi Video of the Day



Yes, okay, slightly late.


Anime Op/Ed of the Day


The dub version of the Tank Police theme, which is basically two words and a preset Casio arpeggio, is infinitely superior to the weirdly inappropriate Japanese original.


Disclaimer: Pi is not encoded in hexadecimal after about 39 trillion digits.  The truth is far stranger.

1 In the comments, they mention they got one of the AMD DeskMinis, but they need a few weeks to review it.
You can see why there're so few ports, especially on the backplane:  the HSF takes up the space where they would go.  It would've been nice if they could have eliminated, say, the VGA port, and stuck an extra USB there, or something.

2 "This would give the FCC massive power over the internet, not just the power to enforce net neutrality among consumer internet services."
What drives me up the wall is that all the Net Neutrality shills--Techdirt, Arse Technica, etc., ad nauseum--also are normally privacy-focused, EXCEPT with regards to Net Neutrality.  None of them will even mention the power grab, which essentially turns ISPs into phone companies as far as regulatory stature goes.  This means, more or less, the end of innovation, and also makes surveillance much more easy.
You'd expect someplace like Techdirt to be all over that, right?  Odd that they're not.

3 Re: disclaimer:  Carl Sagan's Contact (the novel) posited Pi doing something weird way out there in the trillions of digits: a sequence hundreds of thousands of digits long that were all 0s and 1s, encoding a picture or something.  (I don't remember exactly what; I haven't read the book since before the (awful) movie came out.)

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
