I think I've permanently confused KiCAD
it's reminding me that I need to connect this capacitor to Nothing
they have an ISA footprint but it doesn't show up when you search for "ISA" because they called it BUS_AT despite it being clearly called "ISA" since THE LATE 80s
The full AT bus, the 16bit extension to the 8bit PC/XT bus!
this will fix and/or cause all my problems
look at this.
it's the wrong 3D library, as that's just the footprint not the socket. I don't even know if here's a socket, so I'd like to look.
See the 3D model path? it's in Package_LCC.3dshapes
1. the source for kicad which points at this non-existent file
2. @TubeTimeUS's PlaidBib project which points at "Housings_LCC.3dshapes/PLCC-68_THT-Socket.wrl", which is a slightly different path!
TWO HOURS LATER I'M DESIGNING A FLOPPY DISK CONTROLLER
Obviously I let a computer generate the randomness, I'm not a barbarian.
I decided not to use a ground plane fill. it's too easy.
I'm just gonna do point-to-point traces for all the ground points

and the most common subclass of these problems is the one where you have 3 items/animals to cross with.
This is alternatively called the "fox, goose, and bag of beans" or "wolf, goat, and cabbage" puzzle.
the idea is that your boat can only carry one item at a time, but if you leave the wolf/fox unattended with the goat/goose, the wolf/fox will eat the goat/goose.
and similarly, the goose/goat will eat the beans/cabbage if left alone
so you have to set up a set of actions that never leaves either side of the river in one of the lose-states.
the solution to this variant being:
1. take the goat/goose over
2. return empty
3. take the wolf/fox over
4. return with the goat/goose
5. take the cabbage/beans over
6. return empty
7. take the goat/goose over
OK, so there's a physical problem with our eyes: We move them in short fast bursts called "saccades", right? very quick, synchronized movements.
The only problem is: they go all blurry and useless during this
having your vision turn into a blurry mess every time you move your eyes is obviously not a good idea, so our brains hide it from us. Now, imagine you're an engineer and you have this problem.
You've got some obvious solutions you could do.
1. make the vision go black during movement. (Some VR games do this!)
2. just keep showing the last thing we saw prior to movement
both are good options with different downsides, but OH NO. this is assuming everything makes sense and is chronological and (regular) logical.
Your brain does neither of these options, really.
first, it basically puts your visual system on "pause". You're not seeing blackness or even nothing, you're just not seeing period.
then when you finish your saccade, it shows you what you now see at the new position. and then it pretends it can time travel.
So Heinlein had always been very interesting in the short parts of his novels, like the little snippets inside chapters. He had a very fun writing style, and wrote some fun dialogue with fun characters, right?>
It probably comes from how much of his early stuff was short fiction
And I think what happened with a lot of his longer works is that he'd just start writing fun bits and hope it would end up going somewhere or having a bigger plot by the end. like eventually he'd figure out where this was going, then go back and rewrite it into a cohesive whole
and I'm sure he had editors that'd help this process. No editor would let you publish something as rambly and changing-gears-every-other-chapter as The Number Of The Beast, for example... unless you were God-King Of Science Fiction 1980s Robert Heinlein.
so basically I think what happened is that by the 80s (when he was in his seventies!!) he lost the drive to go back and rewrite and he was too Untouchable for editors to make him.
and I'm doing simple-english-wiki! it's way smaller than english wikipedia
I can only imagine how impossibly unparsable that nightmare is
fun fact: when programmers need to write code to extract data from an XML file, the process usually goes like this:
1. find XML file
2. open it in a text editor, see what the structure is
3. write some code that parses that
do you really want to open a 1 gigabyte XML file in your text editor?
do you want to fucking die?
I used to run into this problem back when I worked for the government, because sometimes I'd click a database query log (don't ask why our logs were in XML, it's... complicated) and it would turn out to be 100mb
THAT'S DEFINITELY STILL GONNA WORK IN FOUR YEARS
it does still work, but that's because it's only been 2 years.
also, wow, this is horrible.
the script is to generate random kanji/han characters and insert them into minecraft books.
but the video references there being two hotkeys to generate two distinct books, which seemed odd. so I thought I'd check.
it turns out by "random" they mean "pre-randomized and is hardcoded into the 45 kilobyte autohotkey scripot"
I mean, I get it. I don't want to write AutoHotKey scripts either. it's a horrible, horrible language.

A thread on the potential near term catalysts behind why I have increased my position in 4d Pharma @4dpharmaplc (LON: #DDDD):
1) NASDAQ listing. This is the most obvious.
The idea behind this is that the huge pool of capital and institutional interest in the NASDAQ will enable a higher per-share valuation for #DDDD than was achievable in the UK.
Comparators to @4dpharmaplc #DDDD (market capitalisation £150m) on the NASDAQ and their market capitalisation:
Seres Therapeutics: $2.33bn = £1.72bn (has had a successful phase 3 C. difficile trial); from my previous research (below) the chance of #DDDD achieving this at least once is at least
While looking at speculative pharmaceutical stocks I am reminded of why I am averse to these risky picks.#DDDD was compelling enough, though, to break this rule. The 10+ treatments under trial, industry-leading IP portfolio, and comparable undervaluation are inescapable.— Shrey Srivastava (@BlogShrey) December 16, 2020
Kaleido Biosciences: $347m = £256m. 4 products under consideration, compared to #DDDD's potential 16. When you view @4dpharmaplc's 1000+ patents and AI-driven MicroRx platform (not to mention their end-to-end manufacturing capability), 4d's undervaluation is clear.
As mentioned in the above videos human cloning has been confirmed and many of the elites you are now seeing are in fact clones or doubles standing in for themselves. The reason for these clones is because humanity has not yet awakened enough to handle knowing
all the crimes these sick disgusting Deep State Freemasonic Illuminati Cabal Globalist Satanists are truly involved in. The majority of society would literally go mentally insane if they learned all of this information at once.
UNEP's new Human Development Index includes a new (separate) index: Planetary pressures-adjusted HDI (PHDI). News in Norway is that its position drops from #1 to #16 because of this, while Ireland rises from #2 to #1.
Check out Norway's 'Domestic Material Consumption'. Fossil fuels are no different here to Ireland's. What's different is this huge 'non-metallic minerals' category.
(Note also the jump in 1998, suggesting data problems.)
In Norway's case, it looks like the apparent consumption equation (production+imports-exports) for non-metal minerals is dominated by production: extraction of material in Norway.
And here we see that this production of non-metallic minerals is sand, gravel and crushed rock for construction. So it's about Norway's geology.
Norway drops 15 places on the PHDI list not because of its CO₂ emissions (fairly high at 41st highest in the world per capita), but because of its geology, because it shifts a lot of rock whenever it builds anything.
While carbon capture is regularly discussed in the media, no one really ever explains what it is.
Below is a quick thread discussing the technology behind traditional carbon capture 👇
Carbon capture is broadly the "capture" of CO2 emissions from a power plant or other type of industrial facility.
Technology is connected to the "tailpipes" of these facilities and is used to remove CO2 from the plant exhaust.
Once the CO2 is removed from the plant exhaust, it is typically pressurized and sent under ground for permanent storage.
This step is called "sequestration" and is why experts often talks about "carbon capture and sequestration" or "CCS".
So how do you "capture" the CO2 molecules from exhaust?
Currently, one of the most economic forms of carbon capture is called "amine-based" capture.
An "amine" is a special liquid chemical which selectively grabs on to CO2 molecules.
To get the amine to grab on to the CO2, the amine is put into the top of a large column, while the exhaust is put into the bottom of the column.
The exhaust bubbles up through the column, and the amine drips down.
The liquid amine and gas exhaust mix in the column.

Again, not being Tom Friedman, I am unable to offer any commentary on the political and policy implications of these conversations.
I guess my only thought is that political opinions are pretty complex and multidimensional, out there in the real world.
