also shoutout to like, 2 days ago when I found out my employer has a memes channel on Slack...

and promptly got called out in a meme for "fearlessly shilling rust / to everyone who didn't ask". alas.

annual request for someone to turn the bloody sun off.

please.

Like what do you *mean* I can't talk through this complicated structure aloud?

I've gotta use a piece of paper?!

I miss remote exams.

Most stressful part of programming exams is definitely not being able to talk to myself or, ya know, openly appreciate a particularly *nice* function.

Eurovision, Ukraine 

Happy for Ukraine. Their song slapped and their outfits were cool.

I hope Putin is pissed off. I hope all the crank conspiracy theorists backing Russia are pissed off too.

We stand together.

happy with that result. 💙💛

even if France was bloody robbed.

Norway
Moldova

I possibly go on about FromSoft games a tad too much, but on the other hand: this art is great and demands sharing, so fight me.

And honestly, that first playthrough was an *ordeal* lmfao. Some of those late-game bosses... oof.

this is unfortunate when training neural nets to any decent accuracy is *so goddamn slow*.

Show thread

Fun fact: Windows *really* doesn't like you training a convolutional neural net, playing Phasmophobia, and streaming (NVENC) simultaneously.

It may make your PC eventually hard-freeze until restart, lmfao.

24 hours on an RTX 3090 will yield better accuracy than 24 hours on an iGPU. So... how is it not still a test of who has the most resources...?

Show thread

... To avoid one of our AI assessments being simply a test of who has the most resources, we have to train our network in at most 24 hours.

... but like, *time is literally the thing that better hardware improves*??

istg.
