On Prescriptive Descriptions @ marginalia.nu

Viktor asserts that being a night person means that you go to sleep late not because it's your organism demand, but because it's your habit, id est it's your choice. I'm writing this as I'm transitioning to being an early bird.

Then he gives some motivational talk.

Principles and the English language

adactio.com/journal/17997

Orwell said:

Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
Never use a long word where a short one will do.
If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
Never use the passive where you can use the active.
Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.

The Inadequacy of Most Proposed Approaches

web.archive.org/web/20010519155455/http://www.clir.org/PUBS/reports/rothenberg/inadequacy.html

Most approaches that have been proposed fall into one of four categories: (1) reliance on hard copy, (2) reliance on standards, (3) reliance on computer museums, or (4) reliance on migration. Though some of these may play a role in an ultimate solution, none of them comes close to providing a solution by itself, nor does their combination.

Why the empty atom picture misunderstands quantum theory | Aeon Essays

aeon.co/essays/why-the-empty-atom-picture-misunderstands-quantum-theory

А мне папа как-то говорил, что вот атомы на самом деле пустые так-то. Вроде бы логично, но мне не нравилось, я не принимал. А вот тут статья попалась. Пишут, что это, оказывается, популярный миф. На самом деле атомы очень даже полные. Всякие элементарные частицы не точки, про корпускулярно-волновой дуализм не забываем. В статье стараются популярно объяснить, как это работает. Я не всё понял, но поверил.

Реальный Windows. Пишем realtime под окошками

habr.com/ru/articles/652291

Результат всего этого счастья нужен в режиме реального времени и крайне важен. Пропускать нельзя ни одного замера, потому что основную работу по анализу данных исследователи выполняют после окончания эксперимента. Поэтому всё это богатство данных, помимо показа на экране, придётся записывать на жёсткий диск. Все 1,3 гигабайта данных в секунду. И потом читать в Matlab'е, NeuroExplorer'е или другой программе. Система, которая сохраняла 99,99999% данных, не прошла контроль качества и была забракована, потому что теряла до 13 тысяч замеров каждую секунду.

В комментах пишут ещё:

я долго мечтал войти в медицину и больше 5 лет пытался работать с врачами. в итоге пришёл к печальному выводу, что это очень трудные во взаимодействии люди. не умеют мыслить структурно, стараются постоянно держать лицо, привыкли к строгой иерархии и за её пределами работать не обучены. так что непреодолимое и авторитарное требование виндовса тут неудивительно.

Статью написал Alex Hitech, что уже показатель качества. И комментарии у него заводные:

Мозг необязательно должен быть человеческим. Большинство исследований мозга выполняются на крысах и мышах, — их мозг очень похож на наш, а стоят они не в пример дешевле.

TrueBrain/TrueWiki: A wikiserver alternative to mediawiki and gollum

github.com/TrueBrain/TrueWiki

I have been responsible for the MediaWiki installation on https://wiki.openttd.org/ from ~2005 till 2020. One thing became clear: it is very difficult to keep it up-to-date and to find quality extensions that live for more than a few years.

So, we set out to find an alternative. With the experience we have had with for example BaNaNaS we ideally would like to store all the data in git. This is mostly as data in git is easier for more people to maintain, then a database where very few people have access to. Also, the wiki of OpenTTD was not big enough (~5000 pages) to really need a database to support it. As extra bonus, we would favour any system that could easily be cached.

The software closest to this is gollum. Although gollum appears to do exactly what we want, especially as wikitext is supported via WikiCloth, reality turned out to be something else. Although it does support wikitext, or a subset thereof, it does not support templates. This is a huge issue for any real wiki, as templates make a wiki of any decent size possible. Initially we did hack in support for templates, but as it is written in Ruby, not a language any of the people involved knew sufficiently to make any decent contribution, it only added more issues than it resolved. In the end, it was decided this was not a road to go.

Siderea, Sibylla Bostoniensis (@siderea@universeodon.com)

universeodon.com/@siderea/111531371535487323

In the early days of Android, a friend of mine got an Android phone & was showing it off to me. He showed me Google Calendar, very proud.

"Oh. Huh. Does it support screening?"

"Screening? Probably – what is that?"

So I showed him what my Palm Pilot's calendar can do: with a single click, all of my calendar entries are converted to textless color-coded blocks, so I can literally hand my device to someone else so they can look at my calendar and see my schedule, but not be privy to any of the confidential information specific to events on it.
