I loved playing Creatures 3, an ancient game (1999) with some basic neural nets. I'm surprised that ML isn't a bigger deal in virtual pets today!

Hot take: burning biomass isn't practically carbon neutral on timescales we got to solve climate change.

KNMI: *De verwachte hitte van 2020 in een opwarmend klimaat*

"Het is warm in Nederland. In De Bilt verwachten we vanaf donderdag 6 augustus tot halverwege volgende week tropische dagen met maximumtemperaturen van boven de 30 graden. Vroeger waren dit soort temperaturen uitzonderlijk, tegenwoordig zijn ze vrij gewoon.

Het aantal tropische dagen was honderd jaar geleden gemiddeld net iets meer dan één per jaar. In het huidige klimaat zijn dat er rond de vijf per jaar. De verwachte acht tropische dagen deze zomer liggen daar weer ruim boven. De hoogste maximumtemperatuur van het jaar is sinds 1901 veel sneller toegenomen dan de wereldgemiddelde temperatuur. Dit aspect van de zomer is niet uitzonderlijk in de verwachting voor 2020: de temperatuur van 33 à 34 graden die voor zaterdag 8 augustus verwacht wordt, komt tegenwoordig vaker wel dan niet voor. Ook driedaagse gemiddelde hitte, die voor de gezondheid relevanter is, is dit jaar niet meer uitzonderlijk door de sterke stijging de afgelopen eeuw. …"

Note: the display for youtube-ones and peertube ones is different right now, that post says they're doing something about it. (also, of course, it federates, you should already be able to interact with it)

Programming in C can be very satisfying if you lower your productivity expectations sufficiently. I mean, OK it took me an hour to write the 1001st string splitting function in this code, but it's very elegant and probably only has 3 memory bugs in it.

Certainly can waste a lot of computing power on camcorder shots..

I am not sure if my approach gets the best positions to add the images at.. Eh maybe try some selection later too; have a threshhold of motion-speed or match distance above which frames are not used..

Suppose probably the images won't get better, but still got things to try..

The arms of spiral galaxies are thought to be density waves where matter bunches up as it orbits the core. This bunching up sets off star formation in the gas and dust forming hot blue stars which we see as the spiral arms.

Since the hot blue stars are massive and short-lived, they tend to die off shortly after leaving the visible arms leaving cooler less luminous stars to fill the gaps between the arms.

“Defaults don’t matter, you can just change them.”

Really? Why do you think Google gives Mozilla HALF A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR to be the DEFAULT search engine on Firefox if defaults don’t matter? Or give Apple £1.2 BILLION for the same in the UK alone?

Think about it.

Are they idiots?

Or are you?
