2022-02-11 Nerd Roundup!
Another great roundup week with Jon Kern
This should work in iTunes. (This link http://danielbmarkham.com/podcast/rss is a podcast feed) If it doesn't work, here's a direct link to the mp3: 2022-02-11 Nerd Roundup!
|HN Discussion: Thousands of Mazdas are stuck on one radio station||Nice example of hackers helping one another out. Also bad software, the curse of DRM, etc|
|Rationality declined over the last decades||Jump to conclusions much?|
|For some searches literally *the whole screen!!* on google is now ads.||Google doesn't conflate ads with search results, right?|
|Inroducing the dialog element||Of a mixed mind about this. On one hand, it much more clearly states the purpose of the dom arrangement. On the other, it's yet another one of those re-labeling, layering "helps" we have come to expect so much. So now there'll be 14 versions of doing dialogs, including the official dialog element. I'm not so much a fan. (Although I grok the improvement and generally expect to like it)|
|Quantum Holograms Don’t Even Need to “See” Their Subject New holographic technique could be used for indirect medical imaging and more||Wha?|
|Inline Assembly in F#||Nice reminder that you can inline asm code in a lot of places you might not expect!|
|HN runs on a single box||There's a lesson in cross-checking here for all web devs. It's not that you should run on minimum gear, it's that you should have a freaking good idea of the gap between what others with similar problems are using and what you're creating. Have good reasons for each step beyond minimum|
|How to explain an idea||I like these meta consulting posts. Most aren't hitting on much, but some are quite good|
|Human technology: Text Files||Great rant. If you're providing business value with only a few inputs and outputs, what in the living hell do you need a huge, strongly-typed program to do? (Cross checking yet again)|
|Zero carb beer||Just in time for the superbowl, zero carb beer. How is that even possible?|
|Octopuses Rolling on MDMA Reveal Unexpected Link to Humans||Both funny, serious, and nerdy|
