Given \(M, N\), matrices, let

\[m_{ij} = \lfloor \log_2 M_{ij} \rfloor \]

and similarly for \(n\). Then \(M_{ij} \approx 2^{m_{ij}}\). Define \(m \star n\) by

\[(m \star n)_{ij} = \max_k (m_{ik} + n_{kj}), \]

This gives us an approximation \((M \cdot N)_{ij}\approx 2^{(m \star n)_{ij}}\)

Has anyone here encountered this before? It's essentially floating point matrix multiplication without the mantissa bits, but I'm wondering if there are any papers or resources dealing with it.

The #gameoftrees FAQ summarizes our responses to several questions the internet was asking when the project first became known to the general public: https://gameoftrees.org/faq.html

I friggin' love this educational video.

It's a #Soviet-era #Russian film explaining #SpecialRelativity. I listen to it over and over to practice my Russian. Repetition and a familiar subject help a lot.

Also, it's out of copyright. Soviet films belong to the people, comrade.

#Ghidra might be one of the coolest things I've played with lately, kind of bizarre seeing it running on #OpenBSD. The decompiler tool is.. something else. Also, notice RETGUARD prologue/epilogue?

On -current:

$ pkg_add ghidra

$ ghidraRun

Running NSA reverse engineering tool on the Huawei matebook, of course. 😏

Looking for undeadly.org staff contact :)

I digged up 13 #OpenBSD developer interviews in manageable format that we did for the 20th project anniversary.

It would be great if undeadly.org was willing to re-publish them (currently there is only https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20151030205937 pointing at dead links)
