CBS is apparently so confident about the quality of star trek picard, that I can ask if we're allowed to discuss star trek picard on /r/startrek and be immediately permanently banned.

@thomasfuchs Division by zero; it's just one of those inexplicable things man.

@JordiGH haven’t played that in a while, I’ll look into it, thanks!

I thought the vocalisations in that were just gibberish though, but here’s hoping you’re right and I’m wrong.

@JordiGH probably because it’s slightly more accessible for amateurs to decrypt than badly implemented RSA.

I’d love to see a video game contain a full blown conlang written in arbitrary symbols though.

@aoife I just wish I could get grades B and C maple syrup easily in Ireland. Grade A is *fine*, but it’s far from ideal for baking.

@fedor @neauoire Wayland is just a whole different level of abstraction, meaning more boilerplate is needed, but once that’s done it’s *relatively* smooth. It’s like targeting Vulkan vs OpenGL.

It’s been a while since I tried my hand at writing a compositor, but IIRC wayland+wlroots+a few convenience functions wasn’t that much worse than raw X11.

@ColinTheMathmo Hopefully the UK follows suit at some point. Our land border with the UK is stopping us from ditching it alongside the rest of the EU.

@binary Some people eat up anecdotes like that.

Others aren't into vore.

David Attenborough is the only person to have won a BAFTA in all of the categories: black and white, colour, HD, 3D, and 4K.

GPU shopping 

I'm looking for a fanless AMD GPU. I currently have an elderly HD4000 series, and it works OK for my use (driving one or more large-ish monitors running i3wm). I don't care about gaming, but I might care a bit about Vulkan performance. Searching I found a couple of HD5xxx and HD6xxx cards from visiontek for less than CAD100. I don't mind paying a bit more, but fanless (or amazingly quiet fan) is a hard requirement. I'm in Canada, if that matters.

@JordiGH Don't worry, give it a few months and with the gift of hindsight, WWIII might be the only other reason ICM has been cancelled.

Got strangely lucky today.


hungry, 🍕? 

Would really appreciate a pizza. :flan_peek::flan_insomnia:

@ejk There's a third option: leaving it unfinished as a permanent reminder of past frivolity. That's probably a tad dark though.

Not so proud of this one...

@andrewt @jsiehler I think it's just on the verge of playable. Like @jsiehler said, it's hard to know which 5 digit numbers are primes, so it devolves into a lot of failed guesses pretty quickly.

I'm sure there's a modification or two that could be made to improve it, but I'm just not sure what they are.

Loving this fad.
