We found this old matchbook in our kitchen. It's for a coroner's election. The Democrat candidate is on one side and the Republican candidate is on the other.
  • Coroner is mostly a legal and administrative position I think, medical examiners are the ones who actually oversee autopsies.

  • free and open source GPU compiled by hands
  • This is apparently what the front looks like.

  • free and open source GPU compiled by hands
  • It looks like a wire wrapped prototype board of some kind, impossible to tell the purpose from that photo alone though.

  • The NYTimes is once again trashing the most promising mobility innovation of the 21st century
  • The largest shareholder of the NYT is Carlos Slim, who happens to also own an oil company.

  • What song should I play for my bathroom neighbors?
  • Anything about unionisation, the boss will have security staff in there the next day.

  • What games do you play on your phone?
  • A few from memory that are puzzle type:

    Phoenix wright series

    Danganronpa series

    Professor Layton series

    Rusty lake series

    Ghost trick

  • ‘No one going to jail’ for avoiding UK national service, says Cleverly
  • "punishable by a fine" == the rich can buy their way out of it.

  • Windows 11 IoT LTSC 2024 arrives making TPM and Secure Boot optional — lower storage requirements, too
  • Only for the IOT version which is for devices like ATMs, but it kinda torpedoes their argument that a TPM is hard requirement for windows 11.

  • What is the most unhinged conspiracy theory?
  • One of my favourite historical ones was the John birch society saying Lyndon B. Johnson was a communist agent, who started the Vietnam war to help communists take over the USA.

  • Back in the 1970s when we switched to unleaded gas, what did the vehicles that ran on leaded gas do?
  • You can still buy tetraethyllead for classic cars that need it.

  • Male birth control breakthrough safely switches off fit sperm for a while
  • I can't find much on the mechanism of action (serine/threonine kinase antagonism), other than it's been tried to fight cancer and failed, hopefully it doesn't have any terrible side effects.

    It sounds safer than the retinoic acid antagonist one that was posted a while ago anyway, I can't imagine a drug that does the opposite of tretinoin will be popular.

  • Google is losing it
  • There for me

  • Even in Saudi Arabia, Renewable Power Is Cheaper Than Fossil Fuels
  • Wind farms? I have to admit I assumed solar would work better in the middle of a desert.

  • Dumb question: how do I know if an open source project is trustworthy?
  • Personally I wouldn't trust it.

    First red flag🚩: there's an "enterprise" self hosted version.

    Second red flag🚩: It isn't open source, the licensing structure is confusing 🚩, but it appears to be at best some mix of source available🚩 and open core🚩 (core available?).

  • Is Stremio a honeypot?
  • IMO the XZ thing shows the strength of open source, some turbo pedant found the backdoor within about an hour of it being released because a program took 0.3 seconds longer to start. That wouldn't be possible in a closed source app that can't be debugged properly.
