How do you inform yourself on topics which don't belong to your field of expertise?
  • I'm going to think about that and get back to you. I think it's mostly intuitive, based on many years of experience, but I'm not sure at this point.

    I also have to mention that I was half joking. I don't use YT all that much for my profession. I would, but it's just not entirely relevant.

  • There is only one type of job: Doing something someone else doesn't want to do.
  • If that were the case, there wouldn't be an application and interview process.

    There are often multiple candidates for a given position.

    Edit: I read this as "no one" rather than "someone."

    I understand that someone on earth might not want any given job.

  • Survey shows most people wouldn't pay extra for AI-enhanced hardware | 84% of people said no
  • I honestly have no Idea what AI does to a processor, and would therefore not pay extra for the badge.

    If it provided a significant speed improvement or something, then yeah, sure. Nobody has really communicated to me what the benefit is. It all seems like hand waving.

  • What's something you used to dislike that you have come to enjoy?
  • Sitting quietly.

    I used to require constant distraction from my thoughts. I would keep my local NPR station on in the background, just to have something to distract me from the running monologue and dialogues in my head.

    I had to do a lot of psychological/spiritual work, but at this point I can say that sitting quietly is extremely rewarding and comfortable.

  • Well rested
  • I just started Survival, and the day-cycle rhythm of playing is intense.

    I love when it's my bedtime, but there's still a few hours of Wasteland sunshine before my character gets her full 8 hours of sleep.

    The luxury I deny myself.

  • Making The World's Smallest Orrery

    Chronova Engineering produces exquisite mechanical marvels. Their production values are astonishing, with incredible macro work and a very soothing narration.


    Why stand in line to board an airplane?

    The seats are assigned. People have been standing in line for 15 minutes now. Why on earth would anyone want to stand there, when they could just sit and wait until the line clears?

    I understand wanting to get off a plane ASAP, but boarding? You just end up sitting on the plane, waiting for everyone else to get on.


    Who's Up?

    I just got to work at 02:30, covering the second half of the graveyard shift. Pretty quiet night.


    The What! Help is on the way. One of my all-time favorites, now almost completely erased from digital history.

    This album has phenomenal songwriting. It's got a kind of laid-back LA-surf-rock sound with elements of punk and maybe a hint of wistful country in the lyrics.

    The album and band appear endangered, unavailable on any music streaming service.

    The only online version I could find is this a random YouTube upload with almost no views.

    They were introduced to me by a friend's sister in, like 1999. Their band ended quickly after the death of one of the members.

    The only other digital presence related to them now appears to be a remaining band member's channel, which hasn't been updated in 11 years.


    Rhythmically Inclined Podcast 31 feat. LMajor

    This showed up for me last week in a related tracks playlist. Outstanding set. The last 20 minutes are particularly face-melting.
