    1. to recover loss of observability

      Elaborate... what do you mean? How does it do so? Do they mean recover from loss of observability?

    1. One approach to avoiding this kind of problem is regression testing. A properly designed test plan aims at preventing this possibility

      The antecedent of "this possibility" is unclear. (Perhaps it used to be clear and then someone else made an edit and added a sentence in between?)

    1. Before asking the question, how do I build AGI, you first must ask the question, what would I recognize as AGI?

      Wrong. Here, I'll show you:

      Forget about AGI for a moment. Instead, pretend we're talking about pecan pie. Most people probably can't answer the question, "What would I recognize as a pecan pie?" (or a sandwich). And yet thousands of people are able to make (and thousands more people are able to enjoy) pecan pie all the time—probably every day.

    1. A disadvantage seemed to me to be that it is not obvious which words take one to particularly important new material, but I imagine that one could indicate that in the text.

      I don't understand this.

    1. One significant point of design that Tschichold abandoned was the practice of subordinating the organization of all text elements around an invisible central axis (stay with me here.) What that means is that a designer builds out all the design elements of a book from that nonexistent axis “as if there were some focal point in the center of a line which would justify such an arrangement,” Tschichold wrote. But this, he determined, imposed an artificial central order on the layout of a text. It was an illogical practice, because readers don’t start reading from the center of a book, but from the sides.

      Okay, I stuck it out like the author here requested but I'm still left wondering what any of this is in reference to.

    1. Why not add one more category — Personal Wiki — tied to nothing specific, that I can reuse wherever I see fit?

      This is insufficiently explained.

    1. Still not clear what this daemon does...

      And when you say switch display between HiDPI and LoDPI, what does that do? If it's a high-DPI display, does it emulate a low-DPI experience, for example by scaling/zooming / using 2 output pixels for every 1 in the input picture.

      Is this the same as the fractional scaling feature?

      The GUI for it:

      • lets me enable/disable (what happens if I disable?)
      • Change Mode: "Enable to render LoDPI displays at HiDPI resolution". What does that mean?

      I tried disabling both of those options but

      1. hidpi-daemon was still running
      2. I noticed no visible change

      So I just killed the process. Again, no visible change. So again, what does this daemon actually do for me? What is the benefit of having it running? (I'm not the only one wondering: https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/lwsf4a/hidpi_daemon/ , https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/lxpfpl/hidpidaemon_was_a_huge_battery_drain_for_me_had/ )

    1. their popularity may be aresult of cumulative advantage or the tendency to evoke anemotional response

      Again, wild speculation. Popularity is not necessarily as a result of tendency to evoke an emotional response but perhaps the fact that they play a powerful position in society or "famous" in the first place. Merely rousing emotional responses in others would not lead to centrality of anyone's position in a network, will it?

    1. If ActiveModel deals with your nouns, then ActiveInteraction handles your verbs.

      It's a good analogy, but I think it's misleading/confusing/unclear/incorrect, because parts of ActiveInteraction are ActiveModel, so I guess ActiveInteraction deals with your nouns too?

    1. Now for the record, there is one way to fix the code above without useReducer. You may remember that you can pass a function to the updater function useState gives you. When you do this, that function will be passed the current state value. We can utilize this to clear out our dependency array without having to use useReducer.

      this is unclear

    1. Chevy tried an all-emoji press release about a new car that came across as very forced, proving that less is more when it comes to using emojis in emails. Not to mention, it’s almost impossible to decipher the message they’re trying to communicate.
    1. Important caveat: in the combined expression, if the middle command has a non-zero exit status, then both the middle and the rightmost command end up getting executed.

      I don't think that is surprising, is it? Since && and || have the same order of precedence. So I think this is more of a clarification than a caveat.

      I think this is just because:

      a && b || c is equivalent to: (a && b) || c (so of course c gets evaluated if (a && b) is false (that if either a or b is false).

      I think they just mean, in this case:

      bedmap && mv || fail

      if mv fails, then fail still gets executed.

      Easier to see with a simpler example:

      ⟫ true && false || echo 'fail'
      ⟫ false && true || echo 'fail'

      Better example/explanation here: https://hyp.is/-foxmCVXEeuhnLM-le_R4w/mywiki.wooledge.org/BashPitfalls

      The caveat/mistake here is if you treat it / think that it is equivalent to if a then b else c. That is not the case if b has any chance of failing.

    1. However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.

      I think this:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.


      However, because those descriptors were gave so much too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape, it could not be be efficiently optimized.

      rather than:

      In order to be efficiently optimizable, those descriptors gave much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape.

      In other words that flexibility/dynamism hindered optimization; it wasn't for the purpose of optimization (as "in order to be" could be interpreted as).

      The "too much" wording also contributed to the confusion for me.

      But maybe just dropping "in order" would have been enough for me:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape to be efficiently optimizable. or However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape for them to be efficiently optimizable.

    1. You may want to quickly check which validations apply to a field form without having to deep dive into your component code.
    1. first sighting: use of superscripts like this

      I like it. Nice and concise and understandable.

      • s¹  critical
      • s²  important
      • s³  nice to have
      • s⁴  low
      • s⁵  inconvenient

      But in other cases, the abbreviation is quite unclear and ambiguity:

      Like, what does "pr" mean in these cases?

      priority? Doubt it.

      • pr¹  chore
      • pr²  docs
      • pr³  feature
      • pr⁴  fix
      • pr⁵  performance
      • pr⁶  refactor
      • pr⁷  style

      Pull Request? Doubt it. But maybe?

      For axes that are quantifiable, like severity, using a number makes sense. But what benefit is there in including a number in these (platform?) labels?:

      • p¹ ⋅ browser
      • p² ⋅ linux
      • p³ ⋅ mac
      • p⁴ ⋅ windows

      I think this would have been better and clearer (in that fewer people would be like huh? and wonder what it means):

      • platform: browser
      • platform: linux
      • platform: mac
      • platform: windows

    1. Actually just returning the loginDaoCall works fine. I dont really get what's different as it is the looked like it was the same instance, but probably not.

      So the posted answer wasn't necessary/correct? Which part of the answer was incorrect/unneeded?

      I wish this OP comment included the full version of code that worked.

      I don't understand this OP comment. Wasn't OP already returning loginDaoCall? So maybe the only thing they could mean is that they just needed to change it to return loginDaoCall.then(...) instead...

      That would be consistent with what the answer said:

      the promise returned by the further .then() does also get rejected and was not handled.

      So I guess the unnecessary part of the answer was adding the return true/false...

    1. Despite our best efforts to deal with all of those issues, over the course of time we fall behind. When you look at an issue it's sometimes unclear whether or not we intent to provide the functionality you propose, whether or not we fix the bug, whether or not the issue is a duplicate of another one. In order to restore a reasonable level of clarity we annually perform a House Keeping Iteration in which we go through all open issues. We categorize, label, fix, and close issues. This results in a wave of notification which is hard to deal with (our apologies) but in the end there is better understanding of what will happen to your ideas.
    1. (This can include any verifiable consenting action including sending an email or clicking a check-box).

      By "sending an email" are you referring to a user signing up by sending an email to a certain address? I might have been less surprised by that notion if it was <2000, but is this even done anymore? I haven't seen it done for a while. Almost everyone signs up for things via web forms, it seems.

    1. Records must be kept in writing. Most organisations will benefit from maintaining their records electronically.

      Isn't "kept in writing" different from "maintaining their records electronically"? How can digital data be kept in writing? Is that meant figuratively then? Why would they use figurative language here? What do they mean by "kept in writing"??

    1. To make our local testnet, we’re going to need to give our sbot a place store it, and this is where that name field comes in. Create a new folder in your home directory called .ssb-test (or .anythingyourwantreally). Inside .ssb-test we’re going to make a file called config. Open up a node REPL and generate new shs and sign keys with crypto.randomBytes(32).toString('base64'). We want a new shs key so that our testnet messages won’t be gossiped to the main network and we want a new sign key so that our testnet messages can’t be gossiped onto the main network. Copy this into the config file you made, filling in your keys where specified. { "caps": { "shs": "your shs key here", "sign": "your sign key here" }, "port": 8007, "ws": { "port": 8988 }, "ssb_appname": "ssb-test" } We specify ports 8007 and 8988 so that our testnet can run in parallel with another sbot on the main network and we specify ssb_appname to be the name you gave your network. You will notice that most of the config settings aren’t mentioned here and that’s because for the rest the defaults are used, we only need to specify settings we want changed. Once you save your config you’re almost ready to go, you just need to tell sbot which network you want to run on. To do that, you need to set the environment variable ssb_appname, this is what sbot looks for. So run export ssb_appname="ssb-test" and we’re good to go. (Note: you may want to also add this command to your .bash_profile if you don’t want to run it in every bash session you want to access your testnet in.)

      This part doesn't work as expected or I don't fully understand the procedure.

      If I do the export ssb_appname="ssb-test", and launch ssb-server, there is a new .sbb-test/secret file which contains my new identity. When I put the new shs and sign keys, generated from the node REPL, as indicated, and I try to run any sbot command I get the message about not being able to connect ssb-server, despite of already started it.

    1. In past decades, neural nets used smoother non-linearities, such as tanh(z) or 1/(1+exp(−z)), but the ReLU typically learns much faster in networks with many layers, allowing training of a deep supervised network without unsupervised pre-training28

    1. or

      "I have, in the following little volume, collected a few of these, the Love-Songs of a single province merely, which I either took down in each county of Connacht from the lips of the Irish-speaking peasantry - a class which is disappearing with most alarming rapidity - or extracted from MSS, in my own possession, or from some lent to me, made by different scribes during this century, or which I came upon while examining the piles of modern manuscript Gaelic literature that have found their last resting-place on the shelves of the Royal Irish Academy." (iv)

      The way Hyde makes reference to sources is casual and non-specific. It would be difficult for a reader to access his sources. Because we have such little insight, it is important to be alert to potential biases in the collecting and editing process.

      If we can identify consistencies among the anthologized songs in terms of their depiction of love and lovers, and/or among songs which are excluded from the anthology, we will have reason to regard the very partial disclosure of sources with suspicion.

      As I have already noted, part of Hyde’s project is to bring the reader into contact with language which has an ‘unbounded’ power to excite the Irish Muse. Perhaps part of the way he contrives this encounter is to control the kind of subject matter that will appear to the reader as that which occurs most naturally in the Irish language.

    1. Cholinergic neurons provide the primary source of acetylcholine to the cerebral cortex,

      I think what is meant is "cholinergic neurons in the basal forebrain", or "the cerebral cortex receives projections from cholinergic neurons", as we presume that acetylcholine is coming from cholinergic neurons.
