Looking up the code: "will take around 3 days to train on 8 GPUs". Yeeeaaaahhhh...

<3 It's *really* nice to see LTT highlight FOSS projects like the Open Source Smartwatch program being shown here: youtube.com/watch?v=xF_SR6aUKH

Just learned about bios-pw.org/ - why pay for finding the unlock code for your laptop BIOS when all the paid services most likely use the open source code backing this anyway.

Got 30min of my own time, it's always fun to play with these speakers. The only thing I'm missing at this point is wood for the portable speaker build. It will sound shitty most likely, but it will be mine.

I wish you all a nice day! Enjoy your hot beverage of choice β˜• (tea is superior of course 😁)

Elon Musk is real-life Reid Malenfant from Stephen Baxter's 1999 "Manifold: Time" sci-fi book - enterpeneur with wild ideas, set on expanding to space, "showing it" to the slow bureaucratic non-inovative folks at NASA by building own rockets in a desert and taking in motivated talent, eventually reaching space.

Jaipur - having a lot of fun with this 2 player card game, pretty quick rounds once you familiarize with the rules, and very competitive πŸ˜„

"Gorilla glass" "scratch and crack resistance", bullshit.

Also, I just opened a text file and the editor (Kate) just stopped responding. Tried to close it, got a "Terminate application" dialog, but nope, after several attempts it's still up and can't be force-closed. Not even `kill -9` works.

I tried switching from Gnome to KDE Plasma on my Thinkpad. From first few minutes of use I like it quite a lot, but OMG the random flickering (notification windows, bottom bar). And it cannot be a graphics gpu/driver issue, as many transitions (transparency, moving windows) are nice and smooth.

$ sudo btrfs replace start /dev/sdb /dev/sde /data

Now please yell at me for using RAID5 with Btrfs as per standard internet protocol.

My AIO (Nepton 240) was getting a bit dry and the pump does not sound too good. Rather than wait for the inevitable, I bought a simple (but "silent") air cooler (SilentiumPC Fera 3). It really is more silent than my old AIO, and keeps the CPU really cool (barely exceeds 55°C under load), so I decided to try my chance and beef the (originally 3.5GHZ) CPU up to 4.4GHz. So far stable under benchmarks 🀞

Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)
