Looking for Math Help…

So met the guy who wrote this paper/post on a plane trip several years back where I was flying out on a business trip. I’ve done hundreds of them so they kinda all blend together and I didnt really remember who he was.

Anyway a few days ago he pops up into my emails, must be 4 years, maybe more, since the trip, and says he remembers me, apparently we talked some advanced math or something cause he knew I was the perfect guy to check out is NvNP math proof. Anyway, convinced him to come here and share it with all you guys, he could really use some feedback.

So yea, if you know any math or are just curious please check out @carlostomas ‘s paper attached as the quote/link on this post it would really help him out. I’ll be taking a look when I get a chance soon as well.

Remote Timelines

I wanted to take a minute to explain QOTOs Remote timeline feature, specifically the new aspect we just released on the advanced interface: Domain Favourites.

This feature allows you to pull up a column which is identical to the local timeline of a remote instance, thus addressing the need for users to have multiple accounts across multiple instances. You can be here on QOTO and see the remote timeline as a separate feed just as if you were on the remote instance itself! For example attached to this post is what the Koyu.space remote timeline looks like from QOTO.org.

Note: This feature can not and does not bypass security permissions. If a user has blocked you you wont see that users posts in the remote timeline either.

There are several ways to pull up or switch between remote timelines, and you can have several remote timelines up at the same time or even combine them in a single column.

One way to do this is with the QOTO lists feature. Here you can create lists that are either collections of people you wish to follow in their own timeline, or a list of domains where you wish to follow the remote local timeline of the whole domain. Create the lists you want then open your lists and switch between them to view the various timelines you define.

You can also go into your settings and under preferences there is a subsection called “Favourite domains”, you can add domains there as well. If you do this the domain will show up on the main navigation bar and you can select it with fewer clicks than through the list menu. There is also a Favourite Tags section in preferences that works much the same way.

You can also pull up the remote local timeline of an instance from a posted status itself. Simply click the three dots on a post from any user from the desired domain and one of the options will be to open the remote timeline for that domain.

That is all there is to it, enjoy!

QOTO has been officially added to the public suffix list! YAY!

With IFTTT pushing their new pricing plans, does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives? I'm aware of home-assistant.io/ but if there's anything that will show me to be lazy, I'd like to look at that first. Thanks!

@lupyuen @PINE64 okay, thank you very much for your quick response.

@lupyuen Hi, I just ordered a devkit and Pogo pins from @PINE64. However, my embedded Cortex-M experience is limited to simpler platforms like Arduino nano and ST boards with built in debugger. I've never had to use an external debugger/programmer.

What do I actually need to be able to flash firmware onto the watch? Would a "SEGGER J-Link EDU mini-JTAG/SWD debugger" (link below) work or do I need something else?

Any help is appreciated.

@Demosthenes 👨‍🔬I guess viruses are not as sophisticated as us. Thanks a lot for the clarification.

@Demosthenes I also read the criticism of the pre-print. My original question was leaning more towards the critical claim that covid-19 does not vary enough from other Corona viruses found in nature to lead one to belief that it was artificially modified from an existing virus. So, what percentage of variation among coronaviruses would be high enough to arouse suspicion of genetic manipulation? In my poor (emphasis on poor) understanding of biology, a 5% variation could be significant. Is that not the case?

So... Can someone with bio/genetic/epidemiology background explain this to me? Are her claims valid? The criticism to this paper seems to be that the genetic variation is only 5% but isn't that large in genetic terms? technologynetworks.com/genomic

Autodesk drastically changed the personal use license terms of Fusion360, a popular proprietary 3D CAD product. Crippling the product in the process. I'm kind of baffled how well known 3D printers are making excuses online for Autodesk. E.g 'they need to make money' and 'it's not that bad'. You ignorant fools. Autodesk is a multibillion cooperation that makes hundreds of millions of profit a year!

#FreeCAD, #OpenSCAD and #Solvespace are good FLOSS alternatives.


@rtfm @jdll como se pronuncia "desaparecidx"? En inglés he escuchado "Womxn" pero en castellano nunca había visto esta variante. ¿Alguien puede explicar?
