Take a 3d Neural Radiance Field selfie (NeRFie) with a phone they said: https://youtu.be/IDMiMKWucaI
Looking up the code: "will take around 3 days to train on 8 GPUs". Yeeeaaaahhhh...
👋 reminder that the deadline for student applications for Google Summer of Code is April 13! LabLua is one of the mentoring organizations and I'm one of the mentors with a LuaRocks/Teal related project!

<3 It's *really* nice to see LTT highlight FOSS projects like the Open Source Smartwatch program being shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xF_SR6aUKHg
Just learned about https://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.
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.

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.
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 🤞
