但與此同時,我並不會婉惜帝國的沒落,也不認為英格蘭獨立是一件什麼壞事。中國人總是把自己的強大跟領土範圍劃上等號,死命想維持所謂統一,然而那真的是必要的嗎?

@tomxcd@fedi.nullob.si This comment was inspired by psychoactive drug researcher Alexander Shulgin's book.

One of the more unexpected forms of [drug] abuse can be seen in the costs to the researcher who wished to study it in some legal way. Before it became a scheduled drug, alphaethyltryptamine was what is known as a "fine chemical" and was listed in the catalog of a major chemical company (1993) for a modest $60.90 for a hundred grams. It became a Schedule I drug […] now requires a DEA license for purchase, and retailed at $424.00 for 100 milligrams. That calculates out at $424,000.00 for a hundred grams, a price inflation of a factor of almost 7000, or a 700,000% increase. Now THAT is truly drug abuse.

【北捷黑】
剛好看到有人又再講這件事情
「緊握扶手站穩踏階」這應該是搭過北捷最有印象的一句話
不過在更更更早之前,「右側站立左側通行」可是被北捷大大稱讚以及鼓勵的作法

這邊要黑北捷是,旅客被你養成(好個天龍國習慣)左側通行的習慣,你卻不願意承認自己的錯誤,也不願意去修正
只想靠「緊握扶手站穩踏階」這樣子的語音以及少得可憐的告示來撇清自己責任
「我現在沒有叫旅客一定要站右邊ㄛ」
那你倒是學學高捷麻,直接寫出來
電扶梯就是不應該有人在上面走動!
不然當初 2005 年跨年有人摔破頭你要改標語?

沒有,阿我就怕被罵

然後幫北捷護航(為什麼要護航?)的人就會說「左側通行會比較快也會增加運量啊」
錯,兩側站滿增加30%運量,變快的只有冒生命安全的那個旅客而已
另外,趕時間自己走樓梯ok?

Artemis 1 is confirmed to be rolling back to the VAB.

On-board batteries are only rated for 25 days of operation.

Sharing this information from the official press conference that just happened.

⚠️ PSA Kiwifarms going down 

If indeed kiwifarms is going to be down for good, please understand that y'all should expect a TON of new activity in the fediverse. We've seen it with other sites and this is no different. If you're an admin be prepared for adding new domain blocks, if you're a user do not shy away from reporting and please consider enabling follow requests and disable DMs from non-mutuals.

I know this feels like an overreaction, but better safe than sorry. 🖤

#TIL A circuit with only resistors and capacitors can have a voltage gain greater than 1. This topology was first proposed by analog computing pioneer George Philbrick, known for inventing some of the earliest operational amplifiers. (https://ia803105.us.archive.org/2/items/Bob_Pease_Lab_Notes_Part_3/Bob_Pease_Lab_Notes_Part_3.pdf page 13). This ACM paper also shows how to use a genetic programming optimizer to make its gain even higher. https://dl.acm.org/doi/pdf/10.5555/2934046.2934067 #electronics

我的 RPi 3B+ 加上 ATGM332D-5N71 GNSS 定位模組就變成高精度 NTP Server 了,而且居然可以達到 52ns 這種程度

Every person can
go endlessly debating
on this foolishness

Semiconductor Marketing Tip: You can market your chips with a non-existent but "technically possible" feature. The output voltage is adjustable! (by changing the turns-ratio of your transformer...)

我總覺得 RISC-V 其實和 Wayland 差不多(小聲

I’m so sad that Cybre.Space is shutting down, so I guess I’ll be looking for a new fedi-home :blobsad:

**I would really appreciate recommendations for a new Cybre-like instance to join!**

Oh, I am a C programmer and I'm okay
I muck with indices and structs all day
And when it works, I shout hoo-ray
Oh, I am a C programmer and I'm okay

Expanded this esoteric and arcane Wikipedia article on surge protection from 1,435 bytes (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=IEC_61000-4-5&oldid=940888270 ) to 13,205 bytes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_61000-4-5 ) Information is still far from complete, but at least it's non-zero now... This is the circuit I'm working on, as you might've previously seen from my posts. #electronics

Due to the near-opposite meanings [of "open" and "close"] relating to fluid flow and electrical components, these usages are deprecated in safety-critical instructions, with the words to on or to off preferred, so instead of Open valve A; open switch B" use Turn valve A to ON; turn switch B to OFF.
