i’d like to pick the brain of someone who really knows Vivado and/or ZYNQ. paid.

The video of my lightning talk "We need to tell a better story than cyberpunk" from #35C3 is now available at youtu.be/B3k7cuF-Hjw .

I realized that my English goes potato after I slip on the stairs. I'll try not to do that next time.

This bit I like very much:
"The primary reason we’ve been able to do this is an increase in donors to the project. We hope that anyone reading this will consider giving to Thunderbird as well. Donations from individual contributors are our primary source of funding, and we greatly appreciate all our supporters who made this year so successful!"

I'm back? I enjoyed the holidays more than I expected to. I took some time to "finish" this image I cooked up in support of my team working on a project at work (sasquatch and narwhal were code names). It's been a long time since I had done anything creative. I'd like to make it a habit again, but I don't know... Welp, time to get back to the grind.

I'm going to edit my /etc/hosts and step away for a couple of weeks. Show more

Are there programming languages that really go long on introspection? Like, you can look at variables in a closure, or inspect calling frames, find references to a given object, etc.

Some of these are available in normal languages - I've done them all in Python for instance - but frowned upon. So I guess I'm wondering if there's languages where this isn't just possible, but idiomatic.

this came up in my youtube recs and i'm just floored.

"rediscovering ancient greek music" -- these academics have managed to reconstruct a pretty good approximation of what ancient greek music sounded like: youtube.com/watch?v=4hOK7bU0S1

So the guys from PT security (of Intel ME fame) will do a very interesting BH Asia ‘19 talk, if the abstract is accurate:
“We found that modern Platform Controller Hub (PCH) and CPU contain a full-fledged logic signal analyzer, which allows monitoring the state of internal lines and buses in real time”
“With VISA, we succeeded in partially reconstructing the internal architecture of PCH and, within the chip, discovered dozens of devices that are invisible to the user...”

Is there something wrong with LineageOS (with unifiedNLP) and Osmand or is it just my device? The GPS fix is EXASPERATINGLY slow and sometimes never functions.

Boost please.

What are some good movies with a good amount of overtone? :)

It's a Wonderful Life and any A Christmas Carol are good options, but I'm burnt out on them.

Anything else?
