It’s called T2S (by HE SOFT) in play store. I have to use eReader Prestigio for the big textbook type books. Oh and some stuff is available on YouTube. For example the second and third volumes of Xi’s China governance book are there.


Must of been evil Putin. /s


classic The vocaloid version I am familiar with: https://youtu.be/FNXPBGaUIfU



I love it with my phone because I can turn the speed way up like 1.8x and spend zero mental energy actually trying to do the visual perception thing.

I can free up my body to hike and get exercise. So I can read faster for longer and enjoy it more while getting exercise. Been doing that everyday with Capital.

Doesn’t work that well with some really technical books which I’m more inclined to sit down with. I got it to work decently with Microbiology of the Cell tho.

Improved my quality of life considerably.


great meme bug honestly libs are just gonna lib. conventional logic doesn’t apply


I had issues with reading also but not that long ago I started exhausting the long reading list I built up by going on walks and using T2S with zlib pdf’s and epub’s.

Dark times. Like being f*cked by ghost.


“socially progressive but fiscally conservative” I had a girl tell me that and was like ok…


I don’t agree with you on debian or mint and I don’t like Ubuntu. Ubuntu I haven’t even found to be that pleasant to use and why deal with it’s weird configurations and canonical and all that when you can just use Debian or Mint?

Software reqs seem alright. I haven’t got enough time to read all yet very carefully but I will.



I learned some Spanish in early elementary school in redwood city, CA. My mom is half latina.

My Spanish is pretty spotty but I’m trying to study with the help of books and Latino Marxista.


I’m in a similar situation to you with Spanish and Chinese.


do you think those pictures are real? supposedly they are over 8 months.


My mom said newborns aren’t capable of making expressions for a while.


The K80 came shortly after and it has 24GB but split across two fully independent dies. I think S9150 is better than K80 practically. (virtualization, GCN 2.0/vulkan 1.2, larger address space, no nvidia bs, less elec)

They are server gpus so they don’t have physical video ports. You need to stream the video or just prefer to use then for compute.




This does not appear to be a postal service issue. Specifically the labels are created and it seems postal is waiting for the hand over from the customs location. It was created in July.


Watercooling components from aliexpress indefinitely stuck in customs. Think I need to file a dispute now.
Months ago a ordered over $100 of components to complete a custom watercooling rig/loop for my workstation which I have begun to document in !gem and which should be completed shortly by the end of this year. But I am still waiting for most of them which have been stuck at the 'customs clearance complete" stage for quite a while. Now most of those have been marked as complete in aliexpress and I have 15 days to file a dispute. I will shortly try to pull up their tracking numbers and see if there is movement in the next couple of days. But I think I need to do the dispute. Protectionists stop being lil *****.

both at the same time


good ones on genzedong telegram


My granduncle was into that one. Maybe I’ll watch it.


Someone offered me a FirePro S9150.
They offered $65 + $16 shipping. The Instinct MI25 is not much more, $130, and just better. I will prob not even use the S9150 much unless I need the FP64 for something because it's relatively slow and power hungry. I hope this community is ok for this site. Edit: wow unixsurplusnet (ebay) is selling it for $99. gonna wait till the end of the year prob when I finish the workstation. they have good hard drive and PSU deals too.

My parents say this is obviously fake. My mom has a lot of experience with newborns over her life.


I thought this was a great introduction to lisp as someone who wants to be more familiar. I'm growing more interested in the channel.

I miss Amicese's tech posting.
They got banned but they are young I think so maybe they could be forgiven.....

If you are unfamiliar with the AV1 codec well it is the successor to VP9 which was in the same class of h.264 which was and still is prolific on the internet. AV1 is a big jump over h264... MediaTek was early to implemented AV1 in their Dimensity smartphone chips since 2019. And if you aren't aware those are in a lot of Chinese smartphones. There is now a decent chance you own and use a device that supports AV1 decoding. This means that AV1 I think is going to take over the internet in the next few years. Although AV1 is free and open source, it is a result of corporate socialism and Google's CIA influence. It probably wouldn't even be possible in the capitalist framework otherwise because big surprise intellectual property isn't actually good for innovation or much else. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV1 - https://www.xda-developers.com/av1/ - https://www.androidauthority.com/av1-codec-1113318/ [The AV1 Video Codec - linux.conf.au](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qubPzBcYCTw&ab_channel=linux.conf.au)


My first computer as I remember. Great engineering, much innovation especially on the custom LCD which I'm surprised isn't in all the cheaper smart phones. Microsoft tried to ruin the software lol. > Don Hopkins announced that he is creating a free and open source port of the game SimCity to the OLPC that's what I remember the most

wow. I've been designing toys with these things and it's always scared me.


Project Index 9/12/22
I'm putting together a shopping list on LCSC rn. So to understand what I should stock atm I will try to index some of my short/mid term projects. Also it's good to write and keep track. 1. Immediately I am designing a new LED matrix toy. I have prob around 2k 0603 green SMD LEDs that I got as a gift from a friend years ago... And I have a small assortment of Padauk microcontrollers, but only about 2 each for a given form factor/model and spec. I have cutout a breakout PCB for it, but have not expanded on that. I don't see a programmable variant of my PMS134 so maybe I need to try using an external flash or something... I don't have the proper resistors for this which would be 0-1k ohm and sub 0603. Voltage should also be dropped to like 2.2V but I seem to only have CR 2450s... These things use more power than a lot of coin cell applications. 2. I've been planning to make a board for fabrication machines like specifically very cheap 3D printers... I'm inspired by the Teacup firmware and RepRap project. It should only need a simple M0 or RISC-V with DMA and serial buses. Maybe a ESP32-C3. Or there are many simple ARM solutions instead or as coprocessors for special functions maybe including locomotion control... Also consider some type of DAC system. Additionally this project could be accompanied by a special power supply unit. 3. So also I want to make a high range mesh networking unit... So specifically I should find RF components for that. 4. Future matrices. Future matrices will tend to use smaller LEDs (0403) and RGB LEDs. I found some small RGB LEDs (closer to 0603 but square) and I don't have any 0403. I also prefer use smaller/cheaper micros with these with some buffered shift registers on the outputs. I'm interested in the Shenzhen Fuman Elec 74HC164D. Also future matrices will have larger LED counts and so they may need more extended memory, smaller components and more efficient components. 5. I'd like to make a special PCIe card with lots of accelerators and IO. Or it could do anything but it'd be cool to make a PCIe card. And I have programmable logics sitting around. 6. An SBC. An SBC possibly with a purpose in a product such as a handheld. Would be great experience to hook up an Allwinner or something on my own board if that is something I can do. 7. I am still waiting on specific parts for my workstation. Would like to do more work on GEM OS on that system. 8. I have a ton of stuff to do around the property. Need to put up a barrier and do landscaping and stuff and prepare for the planting season next year.... 9. Need to work on website stuff. I haven't touched my servers in a while but I did switch off of Cloudflare CDN. I should maybe put up a lemmy and work on the git, IPFS, email and some other stuff. 10. Should try to learn some softwares like Blender and FreeCAD. Maybe I'll try to learn some chemistry. And I've tried to study some languages. Also I've been reading history like California wikipedia but don't have much better than wikipedia. 11. Should clean up and develop my room some more. Need to develop the desk system and my shelving, make more room for the workstation cabinet. And get some better lighting and plants and scenery. 12. I'm considering prepping more and more. If I can farm decently enough maybe I can stash stuff and should order certain things while I can. I'm slowly running out of money and I need to consider things such as mining monero... I still want to make a stash in the mountains or something. And I can't reasonably afford some transport like a motorcycle. I'll think of more stuff rn and I have more research and shopping to do. I'm going to go deep sea fishing with my bro, dad and his boss soon.




Shopping for electronics components on LCSC and other sites. How do you find the right ones when there are prob millions out there?
^ stocking my electronics lab so I can get back to designing products. But there is so much to choose from. I open all the categories I'm interested in on LCSC.com (I'm interested in most of the categories). I give some basic reqs if any and sort by cheapest. So much endless options and so much information to wade through on every single chip. It's overwhelming and ends up being very time consuming.

Are these $5/TB plastic disk drives I hear about real?
On my feed I've seen articles that this Folio company wants to produce these drives in 2024. But I haven't seen anything real. Be cool if it were a real thing.
