"You can get this really cheap on AliRxpress"

And they're right.

But also the shipping takes two months

...is this a difference pre/post pandemic, or UK (them) vs USA (me)

Because they never mention the shipping time

I really have to learn that r/raspberry_pi is a "no learn - just inspire" board

Note to self check if rpi 2040 named timers overwrite like you think they should kaspars.net/blog/micropython-b

(I'm glad the pattern I was looking for is several years old)

Micropython doesn't have a built-in debounce?

All the official documentation examples are centered on the pyboard?


docs.micropython.org/en/latest if there's no way to check if a timer is running I guess this works???

There is no urgency to build "AI". There is no urgency to use "AI". There is no benefit to this race aside from (perceived) short-term profit gains.

It is very telling that when push comes to shove, despite having attracted some very talented, thoughtful, proactive, researchers, the tech cos decide they're better off without ethics/responsible AI teams.

Discord is getting in on the "AI" trend with testing of new features utilizing user data scraping, potentially for training a large language model. To disable the only settings which might affect your data being utilized for this, go to the Privacy & Safety section of your Settings. From there, toggle off both "Use data to improve Discord" and "Use data to customize my Discord experience."

Allow me to introduce you to the most ridiculous yet amazing thing you will see this week.

On top of that... the black hole is supposed to be gigantic- How? According to the online calculators I'm seeing, the Schwarzschild Radius of a moon mass is supposed to be 0.10mm or so? OK, supposedly it's artificial... but the difference between a natural black hole and artificial out of control one is supposed to be?

Also less than a Kelvin above absolute zero. That thing is staying around.

No change to earth's tides? The moon is still there? Why is this anything more than a mining tragedy?
