I've been a computer programmer since I first started typing in program
listings on a Commodore Vic 20 when I was about 8. My hobbies include
electronics, CNC manufacturing, photography, beer and winemaking.
I live with my wife, cat, and lots of left-over parts from unfinished
projects in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA.
because apple is the company who respects your privacy, they will be investigating it closely to assign you a "trust score" which was kinda super creepy sounding when it was the Chinese government doing something vaguely similar.
"Here’s what I suggest: Linux Foundation sponsors should demand that the Linux Foundation release all former employees from their non-disparagement agreements, then interview them one-on-one, without anyone currently working at the foundation present. At a minimum, the sponsors should insist on seeing a complete list of ex-employee NDAs and all funds paid to them during and after their tenure. If current Linux Foundation management balks at doing even that, well, won’t that be interesting?"
A great overview of what quantum computing appears to mean for crypto, er, cryptograpy. (ugh I hate how you have to write "cryptography" because "crypto" somehow got coopted by coin bros) But, come on—as long as we're positing aliens who can break an infinite key size AES variant computationally, I don't know why number-theoretic cryptosystems stand. One Time Pads depend on random numbers, and sufficiently advanced aliens would be able to control or predict the output of any physical RNG, even if we think have a physics-based proof that it's impossible. (worst case, they just have to simulate the whole universe to do it..)
hm I'm surprised that a framebuffer was the right solution, but I'd hate to second-guess the author of this neat looking retro game! (ETA: Specifically, you'd have a system where you *do* framebuffer the complex parts of the board -- the lines with the digits and the lines with the ball. But the rest of the lines you just have a set of 16 (?) possible lines: playfield border (or not), centerline (or not), player A (or not), player B (or not). You also need another layer of indirection (one byte per line) or to race the beam to decide which line is next.)
My wife contributed this pizza recipe to our household: - half whole wheat pizza crust with various dried herbs - stone ground mustard - about 2lbs caramelized onions - as much Emmentaler cheese as you can afford, shredded - fresh parsley It might not properly be "pizza" but it is good.
