  • Busty anime babes painted by the Old Masters and Stable Diffusion but mostly Stable Diffusion. (Niche Gamer)

    The algorithm has been trained with over 50,000 images from Danbooru including work by Sakimichan, and the results are what you'd expect, except:
    The only thing Stable Diffusion AI (or others) seem to have difficulty with is hands, which is hilariously something even human artists tend to struggle with.
    No nudity, but probably NSFW if you're working on a Sunday.


  • SigNoz is a monitoring tool like Datadog, only open source. (GitHub)

    They do have paid plans if you want someone else to look after everything.

    Also, the complete source code is about 2.4MB. I haven't tried compiling it yet, though I'm assuming the binaries will be larger.

    The monitoring agent alone for Datadog is 750MB installed.

    SigNoz supports the OpenTelemetry standard; the Python libraries for that total 160kB.


  • Apple's chief procurer was apparently fired for quoting the movie Arthur. (WCCFTech)

    Never speak to the cops, and seven times never speak to anyone pointing a camera at you.


  • SuperSpeed no more: USB now has sensible names. (Thurrott.com)

    It now comes in 5, 10, 20, and 40 Gbps flavours, called 5, 10, 20, and 40 Gbps respectively. There's actually two ways to get 10 Gbps on a USB-C port, but I've never seen anyone using two lanes of 5 Gbps so the chance of confusion is minimal.


  • Even with Zen 4, mitigations for security bugs carry major performance penal... Wait. (Phoronix)

    I was reading the chart wrong. In most cases, applications run faster with the security patches active. In isolated cases, as much as 40% faster. The few programs that are noticeably slower aren't real applications but benchmarks to measure the impact of specific patches.

    Overall, 72% of tests ran faster with the patches active.

The memory market has been through a dozen cycles like this. When sales slow down they slow down production before prices crash completely. They didn't always do that, which is why there's only a handful of companies still making memory chips now.

Not for a second did anyone think of emulating Rembrandt. They went right for big tits. Color me shocked about all this. Back in the olden days at my university all the guy units in my comp sci computer lab spent hours finding bit tit jpegs. I found it amusing. The sys admins not so much; f'ing authoritarians naturally gravitate to positions of spying and ratting out the proles.

28 Rethinking the working out part. It's cool this morning, and I hate to miss that. But I have something like a corn on the sole of my left foot -- under the ball pad. Bothers me when I walk. I need to pick up some kind of shoe insert to cushion it when I go to the grocery.

On the other hand, as walkers/runners know, once you get going and the endorphins start to flow, minor pain recedes into the background until a while after you finish your workout.

If you're referring to that clip above, it's not actually anime, it's a fan-made animation of... Well, it's sort of anime, only not really.

See, this Woke School District policy is you can use whatever locker room you done identifies as. So some dude, claims what he's a female womyns, gets to us the female womyn's locker room.

He makes some lude, crude, and inappropriate remarks to the actual female, girl womyns in that locker room. They don't like that. So, they have to go change in a bathroom down the hall or something, and the tranny (so-called) gets the use of the locker room.

186 From the blessing in disguise department.

Yesterday I was supposed to help move middle daughter into her new apartment. This had been planned. However, the management that scheduled her move-in for yesterday doesn't work weekends and didn't provide her with the key.

With that off the table we went to do some Halloween shopping and almost as soon as I pulled out of the driveway she noticed a high-pitched noise beyond the range of my elderly hearing. Soon enough, though, I could hear it. We thought it might be something lodged in a tire and pulled off at the tire store, which was close by. Nope, not the tire, possibly the bearing.

At this point my daughter laughed and said God was looking out for us. If I'd set out on the highway, things might have gone very badly very fast.

As it was, I'll take it into the dealership tomorrow.

And yes, I understand that in the RC church only people who are RC and in a state of grace can partake of the Eucharist. The women referenced are not RC, and I assume RC feel a great joy when they can partake with other brothers and sisters around the word. Today we have Holy Communion in our church and this always makes me happy.

205 Bad day on the Russian front yesterday; they were forced to admit that their garrison (what was left of it) was fleeing the town of Lyman, a key railroad hub. They waited too long, on orders from Moscow; they should have done it a week ago, when they still had one open highway. The garrison was estimated to contain 2500 - 4500 men, and now even if they do make it out, all of their equipment will be lost. Bad look for Putin after Lyman was supposedly annexed to Russia 2 days ago.

The Pope and the Patriarch of Constantinople have done joint Masses and shared the Eucharist a couple of times.

There was a time when one could pretend that the "schism" between East and West wasn't purely political, but watching the various Orthodox patriarchs excommunicate each other over Ukraine has pretty much put that myth to bed.

Ever since I discovered I can't see deepfakes, I've suspected that I am both partly faceblind, and that AI generates faces based purely based on the specialist face processing region.

It also leads me to wonder what portion of the population has some degree of face blindness and whether that may be one of the causes between male/female communication problems?

I.e. Are women broadcasting reactions using facial expressions that a non-trivial portion of the male population simply cannot see?
