I did it!

I had to edit the #u-boot thing, write my own module for #dracut, google all of the interwebz and bang my head against the table for four hours straight, but finally it's working :)

Unfortunately dracut diesn't show any output before I enter the password as of yet... But that is a minor issue, really.

Tsunami only cause trouble on reaching land, won't cause harm in the ocean, thus you should use servers in the Digital Ocean.

Someone should make a video tutorial on formal verification and name it "Bugs DESTROYED by FACTS and LOGIC!11!" Of all things that use this stupid meme, this will be the only legit one...

@Neo_Chen @tuxcrafting Today I just discovered that MS-DOS was also the best BSD bootloader. William & Lynne Jolitz used it to port BSD to the x86. It was literally "the" initial bootstrap program for BSD. . 386bsd.org/releases/porting-un

it's always extremely cursed when 0 is valid addressable memory so faults get triggered 2 functions later when the garbage that was fetched from 0 actually blows stuff up

社交网络用户生命周期内的语言变化 @mature 

#论文导读 #老奶奶都能懂的论文导读

每个社交网络里面都会演化出特定的语言习惯(linguistic norm),也就是站内的“黑话”。本论文研究了用户在不同生命周期里是如何使用这些黑话的。

论文研究对象是两个啤酒评论社区BeerAdvocate 和 RateBeer 长达十年的数据。十年里,这两个线上社区经历了多轮的用户更迭,论坛的黑话也翻新了好多次。

依靠语言模型,研究人员发现了用户在不同生命周期里面对黑话的反应是不同的:早期加入的时候会积极学习黑话,使自己的语言接近社区的语言。等相似度达到顶峰之后,用户就会变得保守,不再积极接受新的黑话。随着社区黑话不断更新,老用户依然会坚持使用以前的黑话,直到发现自己的黑话已经跟社区新演化出来的黑话对不上了(见左图),这时候就是老用户离开社区的时刻了。令人惊讶的是,这个规律是非常稳定的,虽然用户生命周期有长有短,经过标准化之后,也会呈现出早期对社区黑话开放后期逐渐保守的特征 (见下图Figure 8,右图)。说明使用社区黑话体现了对社区的热爱程度。

根据这些发现,研究人员尝试预测用户的生命周期。只要对比用户的前20条帖子的语言和当前社交网络的总体语言习惯,就能够一定程度上预测该用户是否很快就会离开社交网络。

when i heard the phrase "the average iq is below room temperature", i took it as even more hurtful than intended because i assumed room temperature is in celsius instead of fahrenheit

gfverif's way of doing quick and dirty verification of existing C code is somewhere between genius and madness - define a new "mockup" integer type and use C++ to overload the operators like plus or minus, instead of doing calculations, it generates SageMath scripts of equivalent operations in algebra. This way, the entire C algorithm can be automatically extracted without writing any parser or compiler... The only problem: conditional branches using data are not supported, but you're not supposed to do that in crypto anyway... 🤣
