    The Programming Thread

    I appreciate creative problem solving. It took three iterations of the last line to match the compiler library sqrt function, so I'd call it a successive approximation algorithm. There may be portability problems. With the way I have my compiler options set it compiles wit warnings of the...

    Dark Brandon strikes again or is it another Biden gaffe ...

    Just today. An 11 year ol shot in a car on I5 in Tacoma. An apparent random highway drive by shooting. What are labeled mass shootings abd school shootings are a small part of the gun violence.

    Colorado club shooter is non-binary, CNN repeatedly misgenders them.

    It appears straight, LGBQ and whatever acronyms there are, anybody can go crazy and shoot people.

    Dark Brandon strikes again or is it another Biden gaffe ...

    We interpret COTUS to the extreme when it suits us. Left, right, and center. To me unrestricted freedom of speech interred as you can say anything anytime is a misinterpretation. It is used to now juastfy 'freedom of expression' which is not explicit to justify any kind of behavior. The 2nd...

    Did Paul create Jesus?

    Is Crypto dying or just dropping for the moment?

    Trump like. Trump has manged to cover his money trail. He always seems to escape with money when his ventures go belly up. If you look at how the economy works using crypto to make pruchases is only one part of the economy. Companies typically run on cash flow, monthy expenses cover monthly...

    The Programming Thread

    With the old 8 bit microcontrollers triming a few bytes sometimes meant getting it to fit into memory. Like the 8051. Same with optimizing for speed. Many apps use embedded Windows or Linux. Enough room in memory to run standard C and math libraries. I am just doodling to stay active and not...

    Climate Change(d)?

    From the mouth of a decadent hot tubbing wine swilling beer guzzling Claifornian. In the words of TSwizzle a notd Californian, 'You'll have to pry my guns, wime and hot tub from my cold dead hands'.

    Is Crypto dying or just dropping for the moment?

    In the newFTX was based in the Bahamas, hat should have been a big red flag. The top people bought extensive real estate. At the bankruptcy filing they had 3 billion in debts and lost 8 billion. A lot of money just disappeared. They were utterly incompetent and inept.

    Climate Change(d)?

    I don't know the numbers. There are credentialed scientists who reject human causes. There are credentialed scientists who reject evolution. By credentialed I mean PHDs from credible science programs.

    For TSwizzle and those like him it is probably a coping mechanism. Trivialize it so you don't have to think about it.
