"What’s funny to think about is that if instead C had not done that and used 1-based indexing, people today would certainly be claiming how C is superior for providing both 1-based indexing with p[i] and 0-based pointer offsets with p + i."

LEDs From Dubai: The Royal Lights You Can’t Buy

[Clive] had an interesting video about LED lights from Philips. You can’t buy them unless you live in Dubai. Apparently inspired by the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who wanted mor… hackaday.com/2021/01/17/leds-f

I found in my Steam library (who knows which HumbleBundle I bought it with) and I only recently discovered what a gem it is. Easy to get into, good level design, progressively increasing difficulty, humorous, lots of fun, "kid friendly violence" (I'm OK with my kids playing it and they enjoy the game), level editor, and when you have 4 controllers, there are many game modes available for the whole family to enjoy.

Have to make use of that FICSMAS event before it's too late...

I like my OnePlus Nord, but there are two issues I can't forgive it: a) the placement of the volume and power buttons - they directly oppose each other, so whenever I change volume, I "grab a screenshot" (vol down + power) since I have to "hold the other end" to press it b) the fourth "depth camera" is just a placebo, all portrait processing is done in software (install gcammod to check, there's no data coming off the fourth camera)

"Homemade" documentary about the quest for computational foundations of the Universe, with a strong History Channel ("it's aliens") aesthetic, ft. interview with Stephen Wolfram: youtu.be/PaRWSFrZcMc

Spent a good few hours today trying to flash onto my touch switch. That thing is sensitive to how you wire it up. Also, the documentation is not correct (gasp!), most of the time was spent finding the right baud rate.

Worst thing on this? After I was done, I realized the switch will not fit into my wall socket, it's too thick 🤦‍♂️ .
