So I recently got a few thousand boards printed up for my protoboard design. Tested them on a few circuits and im amazed how well they work. I'm writing the datasheet now and we will begin selling on digikey, mouser, and many other big names soon.

In the meantime any EE people out there want a free board? We are going to hand out a few hundred for free to get people interested.

Here are some past posts I made about it for some background info. I've also attached an image of the final boards.

To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same. Add to the post.

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

Game developers boss: "Have you improved the game play? The Game mechanics? The physics engine? The Graphics? What about all those crashes and other bugs?

Developer: "Ummm, no but we managed to make all the breasts of female characters twice their size with four times the jiggle"

Boss: "Its ready to ship!"

I've been on my first GNU/Linux distro for almost 3 months now. I picked Linux Mint (and I am okay with my choice, but I do think about how Manjaro as a first distro would be like), but now I have the need to switch to a different distribution, especially something rolling release.
I do not care about choosing every package that my system will have; I am fine with a little bit of software not being used on my system (This makes the incoming list preferred over Arch Linux). I care about an user distributed package manager (?) being there, such as AUR. I care about installs supporting a Window Manager such as i3. I care about my system not breaking due to an update on the OS (I have heard that this kind of stuff happens on Arch Linux, and that for this reason Manjaro filters the Arch Linux updates and gives a more stable experience (I also heard that they just delay the updates and call it stability).). So with these in mind, I have these distros and Arch Linux installers to choose from:
1- Manjaro
2- ArcoLinux
3- Garuda Linux
4- Endeavour OS
5- Anarchy Linux
I would highly appreciate any suggestion / discussion!

Finally get through OpenCL's Hello World in Kotlin. Computing 3 million times sin and cos using GPU, total time is 456ms, 105ms is used to compute and read result back to CPU. On the other hand, CPU takes whole 891ms to compute cos and sin. Which I guess it's more convinced for me to just say "GPU is good for parallel computing". The result is more vivid than sentences.

After doing this, I though LWJGL's document on OpenCL is really bad. What all I referenced are Java test codes and C++ codes. And I rely on my experience a lot to debug it. It looks like JOCL's binding is more object oriented and more user friendly. But LWJGL is offering a integrated package of OpenGL, GLFW and OpenCL binding, which I guess I have to stick with it for now.

Besides auto converting Java bytecode to OpenCL kernel, Aparapi seems much easier to get start with. Without dealing a lot of data copying and buffer creating things, life is much simpler.

I might write a blog(in Chinese of course, since I'm a Chinese, maybe I'll commit this program to LWJGL as a OpenCL HelloWorld) to describe where you should take a good care with LWJGL's OpenCL binding, where I actually crash the JVM by doing it wrong. (BTW, using println to locate the crash point is way faster than step through XD)

I'm not sure who needs to know this... but... Inflation is a **good** thing when it occurs at a reasonably slow pace over time. It is only a bad thing when it occurs quickly (hyperinflation) or when factors cause a feedback loop where the inflation continually accelerates quickly reaching hyperinflation.

Inflation means as long as you arent hoarding cash (which no one should do) your investments are growing faster

Learned a lot about general computing on GPU via a youtube video.

Besides OpenGL compute shader, I'd prefer using OpenCL to update tons of units concurrently. I'll give it a try, but it seems like LWJGL's OpenCL binding is not well documented and only a few examples are given. Maybe I'll go further deeper in it.

@freemo I actually found the source, so even the density of molecules is apparently much lower than reality gaelmcgill.artstation.com/proj

I have seen this claimed on reddit and imagur to be an actual composite image of a cell from "radiography, nuclear magnetic resonance and cryoelectron microscopy". Yet despite seeing it posted all over the inernet claiming its a real image I can not find a single scientific source for it. Anyone who can figure out if this is legit or not please comment.

Holy crap crypto is going crazy today.. my portfolio started up 4% over 24 hours when i woke up, now its 10% over 24 hours... up up up and away!

Man crypto mornings always make good mornings. Woke up to another 4%+ increase in my crypto portfolio over 24 hours. Past 3 months crypto is feeling like a damn money printer. Crypto go brrrrrr

So apparently kickstarter projects are still scams....

No way in hell one turn a second is producing 1 amp at 5V on this thing, not even close.

To all my friends I want to wish you a good and I hope it brings you whatever it is you seek.

Some people requested to have access to the app store link of my app in english. I will put it here : πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§:apps.apple.com/ca/app/timenote
πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‡«πŸ‡· :quebec: : apps.apple.com/ca/app/timenote
I also have some great news:
I took the decision to make Timenote free ✨
The reason why is simply because while the app could gain users, as i see from the store stats and past promotions, but the price, as low as it can be, can be a barrier for some people to try out the app.

There is no plan to introduce intrusive and annoying the app, since this is an app that is made for keeping track of your online classes, and help you go back to specific parts of your classes to rewatch what was unclear, or were too distracted to listen.

There will probably be in-app purchase for special stuff, all in a non-annoying way.

Mac,iPad,iPhone, you got it, you can just start when you're on your online classes, or even any long video, like a youtube tutorial, you press on the arrow paragraph and you can add the timestamp and write next to it what's it's talking about. You can save it as a text and put it in folder however you please. If you're late you can also just set out a specific time to start.

For all the green bubbles out there and apple haters there there's also a web version at timenote.app , although it does not provide all the same features as the native app.

@freemo
Actually a college student friendly maths textbook is a good idea.
Tailor series becomes easy to remember when a busty horny milf is lying on top of it :blobfoxcomfysmirk:

Holy crap, close call lightening strike and my 50 some foot antenna on my roof definately felt that, heard it crackle.

I suspect the Cardano crypto is going to skyrocket this year. Next month they release smart contracts on the test net and plan to move it to production/mainnet by august. That is the game changer that is going to bring cardano to the top tier. With the general boom in crypto right now cardano is where I have a lot of my money right now... I have big expectations!

This story is what happens when psudo-science psudo-journalists try to piece together what is going on, using only crayons and information someone selectively leaks from behind the paywalls.

The premises stated are weak, making the conclusions even weaker. They highlight actual issues, real data, and go fucking off into the weeds applying science that doesn't actually fit, and answers they dream up, and trying to find scraps of papers that support the theory.

Meanwhile, the vast majority of actual research, that plugs all the holes in this bullshit, sits behind a paywall, so this shit continues. Covid is real, the problems are real (identification, understanding, etc). But the problems the psudo-science psudo-journalist report is fucking laughable.
