All That Jazz Edition
Also, don't put chikuwas in your air fryer. Reine from Hololive tried it live on stream and posted the results. The term carbonised comes to mind.
- The ultimate monitor? (Tom's Hardware)
Maybe. The Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX is a 32" 4K 144Hz monitor with G-Sync, 10 bit DCI-P3 color, HDR10, and an eye-searing maximum brightness of 1400 nits.
Price is a wallet-searing $3000.
Which is a lot for a 4K screen; you can get a decent IPS screen for $250. Or for $4000 you can upgrade to 8K. But a single 8K screen requires all the outputs of a high-end graphics card working together, and a low-end... Wait. This one does 144Hz and has 90% DCI-P3 coverage.
That's not bad for $250.
- Intel's high-end multi-chip Xe graphics cards will potentially match Nvidia and AMD's middle-end cards. (WCCFTech)
If it eases the ongoing shortage at all, I'll take it.
- I'm going to sing the doom song now. (New Atlas)
2014 UN271 is an Oort Cloud object that is currently approaching perihelion. It's closest approach will be around 11 AU - about a billion miles from the Sun - but its orbit takes it out as far as 60,000 AU - almost a light year.
It's not small either; observations indicate it's around 100 miles in diameter.
- The three most important programming languages are Julia, Crystal, and Nim. (Matecdev)
Julia for scientific computing - it's the new Fortran, only even faster and much easier to use.
Anime Catshark Girl Music Video of the Day
Gura from Hololive has good taste in anime. She sang Tsumugi's shark song from Amaama to Inazuma live on stream. A fan reanimated the entire scene to her song, with other Hololive characters dropped into the remaining roles.
Gamers Nexus Cheap Video Card Review of the Day
Steve's back again, this time with Intel's DG1 video card, which you can't buy and couldn't use even if you could. It's an OEM product with very restrictive hardware and firmware requirements.
Also, it's slower than AMD's integrated graphics, and suffers badly from inconsistent performance.
Disclaimer: I mean, so do I, but I'm taking medication and it's getting better.
Strictly speaking, actions could have been taken without violating causality, because of his age, wealth, and being active in business in NY back to the eighties.
All someone would have needed to do, in my case, was get Dragonball and Pokemon on broadcast TV, and later fundamentally ruin just about all of the domestic competition. Easy Peesey.
Doesn't answer the question of where the information came from. It is kind of one of those elaborate scenarios that can be shown probably false by the information requirements, and study of motive.
I mean, if you have to have a political explanation involving specific politicians, Pelosi, Obama, and Biden closely resemble some of the antagonists of Demon Slayer.
Most probable politicized explanation is that the wokenoids have ruined domestic entertainment, and the damage done to Japanese, Korean, etc. entertainment is less obvious to an American audience because of cultural differences.
Got to push back on the Julia theory. Two arguments.
One, "How do we know if we are really getting anything out of science that is valuable outside of the engineering disciplines?" a.k.a how much have universities been ruined by turning them into carefully curated asylums? If you can reduce actual science to a subset of engineering research, there are varied programming requirements in electrical engineering research, that push those scientists to a range of languages.
Two, what I've put together tells me that there is a rather huge range of programming tasks, whose demands 'should' point at a wider range of languages than three.
Caveat, I definitely have not hit 'real programmer' levels of skill yet, and I am pretty terrible at programming.

This thing where colored fellows chant childish rhymes over simplistic banging sounds seems to be catching on among suburban whites. It's probably connected to Donald Trump's short, direct sentences.
