@buzzert It is German: „[inaudible] sind, wie wir das für richtig halten.“

The part after the comma roughly translates to “how we think it’s right”. Probably makes more sense in the context ;)

Any German speakers on here? Wondering if anyone can recognize this short mysterious audio clip from the Xbox UI. (Not sure if it's German either though).

Really interesting how when you're selecting text in System 7, it's just inverting the pixels under the selection rectangles, regardless of what's underneath it (as evidenced by this garbage left here by a program crashing).

Obviously, assume you can’t bring anything physical with you when you time travel besides your own body. This means you could arm yourself with knowledge about how to *make* money in the past, I suppose.

Interesting thought experiment: how would you send money to yourself if you were traveling backwards in time?

The problem is easy if you’re traveling forwards; just bury some gold, buy bonds, etc. But what about backwards?

I'm learning Blender, and I made a thing! So much fun

Latest in the Linux phone adventures. The Nokia N900 running postmarketOS! Very cool!

Update on the Ubuntu Touch situation: it definitely seems like an abandoned project. Performance is quite bad on the OnePlus One and there's very poor software availability (and the fact that it has such an old set of packages means it's pretty hard to build things from source too).

Definitely looking forward to the Purism Librem 5 instead (I'm a backer!). Gnome apps and mainline kernel would be so amazing!

Does anyone have a good minimalist Emacs config? Big fan of spacemacs, but it feels so heavy and I’m not really interested in using Emacs as an IDE.

Anyone using Ubuntu Touch? I just ordered a OnePlus One (very cheap) to try it out.

The recent machine learning trend represents a huge disparity between small tech companies and huge corporations. It costs an insane amount of money to gather data to train a neural net, and even more to throw at the hardware/infrastructure to do so.
