my favorite way to see if a point is inside or outside a path, is using its winding number🍥
traverse the path from the perspective of a point and add up the amount of turning along the way
if it made a full turn, it's inside
if it wound back to 0, it's outside
it's so neat~💖

Exactly. James Besson, a US Economist at Boston Uni, studied impact of automation on labour across US industries for past 200 yrs. All employ more people than b4.

no, i don't want to go through join my >10th slack to discuss or plan a thing for your event or open-source project.
In a few years we will hopefully look back at this and wonder why we created all these walled garden communites.

Spent a little time RE'ing some recent Tesla BMS firmware.
Some variables were tweaked to fit 108 cell groups (~450V pack).
There is a packID that starts life set to ~109 kWh usable (400+ miles).
Bunch of other tweaks suggest prep for new S/X/3 pack configs at some point. 🔋
