For once am not happy about Mastodon being on the HN frontpage. Someone submitted a work-in-progress pull request there. Half the comments are circlejerking about free speech as always, the other half gives opinions without understanding the context of the feature (which is not surprising given that it's a work-in-progress pull request on GitHub and not a goddamn press release).

The universe tries to tell me to , I guess.

Was locked in, this morning due to a broken lock. Had to drill a hole to get the broken rod out and be able to open the door.

Interrupted transmission- zooming in on video conferencing privacy policies - noyb.eu/en/interrupted-transmi

I'm looking for 'ethical guidelines', or such, published by tech companies.

Where they lay down how to protect privacy, support diversity, and/or protect users.

As inspiration for our new company.

LND question:

The first item in the JSON return for each channel when calling `lncli listchannels` is

"active": (true/false)

What does it mean when this boolean is false? The other node is offline? Wondering if I should force close these channels? They've been "active: false" for a while now.

If a greedy attacker is able to assemble more CPU proof-of-worker than all the honest nodes, he would have to choose between using it to defraud people by stealing back his payments, or using it to generate new coins. He ought to find it more profitable to play by the rules, such rules that favour him with more new coins than everyone else combined, than to undermine the system and the validity of his own wealth.

Unexpected data thingy: Addresses per Postal Code in the Netherlands are far from evenly distributed.

E.g. a single holiday-park has more addresses than the city-centre of amsterdam. Source: Openaddresses.

Me: "Cool, the Dutch government publishes a map with all Bicycle parking - Fietsstallingen".

Me. Oh, wait. 😔 That is "bicycle-countings" - Fietstellingen.

As everyone in programming knows, or should know, week-numbers are a complicated mess. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601

For me, the hate on JS is not it's syntax, nor the weakly typing, not even the historical WTFs with magical type-conversion.

It's the total lack of any stdlib. That is the root of all problems (NPM, the-every-week-a-new-framework, toolchain-clusterfucks etc)

What frustrates me most about JS is how it unexpectedly keeps letting me down.

"A, I'll just write a quick hack to show the week number"

Opens JS api docs. 🤔 . Googles. Duckducks some more. WAIT. WTF? there's no API to get a week-number and everyone is implementing their broken or overcomplicated version?

Yup. That's the JS community.

@berkes ah, good find!
I was thinking that despite intuition, there may be something interesting that could be done with a degenerative mathematical object.
ie. While the object itself is not 'intuitively sound', you can utilize it with some fancier math to arrive at a conclusion that would not be possible with a lower dimension, non-degenerative object.

I hope that makes sense-- the example of degenerative eigenvalues on the wiki page helped me confirm this sort of thinking.
