  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Sometimes I'm mainly interested in the thought rhythms/tone sequences and watching them ripple through my mind. Plus the referenced twitter account had pictures of owls, including a newborn owl. I haven't enough context in UK culture to properly evaluate it...

    ...so imagining that vast networks that are backed up with serious weaponry that do not take kindly to being attacked is just a given. Thanks, the details were interesting. Want a new one? What stops Lucid Dreaming? And is it...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    The word “queue” is not typically used in the us for people standing in line, nor is the word advert Yes. This is why I've been 1/2 yearning for a decent "free" commercial semantic search engine.[0] The negative is that...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Did you do the grep? Of course. Lots of them. Fascinated (very) that I did not find what I was looking for. (Closest was "laughing all the way to the Void." but it was more like context around something similar...

    Provide the Evidence. Google is failing. I need to hit the proper searcher and may have misinterpreted anyway....
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    We don't give a fuck about you anymore, we want the Whales to survive. The plan a while back, expressed by one of your names, paraphrased, was quarantine until all the large brained megafauna (including humans) suitable as host brains...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    You'll *never* guess the name of the con man (really!). And there is a well-known man with that name who is known to pay close attention to anything involving that name. --- EGA, still digesting yesterday's material. Almost accidentally posted...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    *watches everyone ignore the posts* Nah. People read. You had some good material tonight. This made me smile wide: start Being All We Can BE and this, double smile: More like a meteor. A Green Meteor. I was getting a...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Since nobody has linked it, Randall Munroe (xkcd) has what might be an attempted explanation(4 Jan 2019) related to the bits by EGA above about [Witches] and Shorting. (Explanation in second link by a SHORT WITCH.) I smiled....

    Receipts, available for people who can do the simple puzzle... My first instant reaction was something to do with HF trading, with somebody somehow taking advantage of the longer (and thus slower) path that light takes in fibre [0], vs...

    Positive? You're still alive if you're reading this. That's about as good as it gets. Oh, and you can still laugh. Truth. Good to hear from you....
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    And I thought that the traveling salesman was an NP hard problem, so...hmmm. It's an approximation method, if I'm reading it correctly. Sorta-interesting though. Many of the refs are new to me. (You don't want to talk about ways to...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Anyhow, we're in a bit of trouble, so Ciao once more. Live long n prosper. Please take care. Best wishes and good health to you as well. US getting really loopy, e.g. Mattis out two months early. (This was interesting;...

    [Atlantic link broken but easily fixable.] Fun article, I smiled. Here's the paper for anyone interested: Biomechanics of the peafowl’s crest reveals frequencies tuned to social displays (Open, 28 November 2018) #2 Your face when you realize you work in...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Oh my. They (US HOR) are also sneaking in some anti-choice material. The US Senate sometimes just removes crazy House Of Representatives stuff like this (or the Johnson amendment). From the US HR88, page 123, that pdf might be current...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Host does *not* call it lying, he calls it fiction. Nope, it's a long-running joke, e.g. https://www.nls.uk/learning-zone/literature-and-language/science-fiction-in-scotland/charles-stross-transcript My favourite way of describing this is, I tell lies for money! (I agree with you, as long as it is clearly labeled...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Look, we keep pushing this Djinn line, but if it turns out it was actually humans, your minds are fucked. Why not both Djinn and humans? Fun paper: (Boys. Hummingbird boys.) Synchronization of speed, sound and iridescent color in a...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    fuck right off with your morality shit. Was not a comment about morality. (It hasn't fully hit me yet, btw. Still missing some pieces.)...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Do you know what it feels like to enact Genocide while experiencing their suffering? It's not something you can monetize. That is one of the most gut-punching statements I've read on the internet. (Also, Grey Area is my favorite ship...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    JW bravely and self-sacrificingly going back to dive in the memory of his loved lover (ghost) I did do a brief google poke when you posted that earlier. (Was never a fan of Ronald Reagan.) The only film I found...

    "CopYing" Interesting, I read that as copying (above) (and a stashed copy confirms it was coping). And I was useless in the L.I. typo hunt thread; read every one one of those even the 109 (Kindle) as the author intended....

    which the US has the most of, and which due to methane leakage from the falling apart US industrial infrastructure probably creates more global warming than coal. Eelos G.A. partially addressed this. There is also regulatory capture to consider, in...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    So go back to screwing the rest of us... I'll add that the spreading of nihilistic gloom porn is ... irritating. Particularly if it is motivated by greed, e.g. the Fossil Fuel extraction interests actively seeking permanent (well, a decade...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Also wondering whether this article is suggesting that this approach might be used in training non-gaming AI. Well, yes. I once said no to some potentially really interesting MCTS work due to the funding source, which skeeved me out a...

    Two pieces on game playing by computers, the second by the AlphaGo team. What's particularly interesting is that they use Monte Carlo Tree Search, even for chess. Short background piece Mastering board games (Murray Campbell, 07 Dec 2018) A general...

    Agree with the thanks above for the emptywheel.net link. I should have been tracking her; she's exploring some parts of the possibilities graph that I haven't seen explored elsewhere. (One risk of having an over-minimized US politics tracking feed. Sigh.)...
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    Thanks! something I should have known about. https://jimsnowden.com/2013/07/15/block-wardens-the-eyes-and-ears-of-the-gestapo/ In this sense, the block warden was a bit like the the kid in The Twilight Zone who could read minds and send people to the cornfield with a thought. It was...
