When I start eating shitty foods it spikes very high, and when I'm drinking alchohol it swings up and down and I feel shittier in general.

after almost 14 days with this thing on, I find one thing really interesting: How shitty/tired I feel seems highly correlated with high blood sugar. When fasting it stays super even at around 5/90 and I feel great.

ribosomes compile physical machines that do the work of the cell. interesting. I guess they are more like 3d printers than compilers.

Show thread

not thinking about something simple as the game of life, but something will cell identity.

fun idea for a computer simulation of life: can you create an algorithm where you start from a single cell, have each cell divide and differentiate until you have an "organism"/body that does something useful as a whole. I'm sure this has been done somewhere?

There are probably many more interesting computer science analogies here, especially when it comes to the epigenome... need to study this more.

ah so ribosomes are compilers?

DNA -> source code
RNA -> intermediate representation?
proteins -> machine code

40C/100+F is fun because it's like a game of finding the next location with AC before you pass out from heat stroke

average blocktimes are increasing... next difficulty adjustment looking to happen on the 4th now at this rate...

If you took all of the DNA in your body and stretched it out, it would go to Jupiter and back 10+ times. Every cell in your body stores 2 meters of DNA. The amount of physical compression to make this work is mind blowing.

once we add more tracepoints, we could eventually enable the functionality of @lopp's statoshi[1] to anyone running a bitcoin node.


Show thread

what's nice is that anyone can write programs that attach to these tracepoints to do something interesting. perhaps you want to create a web app that display all your node p2p messages in realtime, you can do that once this PR is merged!

Show thread

only these two traces are needed, the p2p ebpf program hooks into these at runtime. these are a no-op when no ebpf program is connected. zero overhead + unlimited utility. amazing.

Show thread

still blown away by @0xb10c's p2p ebpf tool for bitcoin-core. detailed node introspection with only a few traces added to the codebase 🀯

here's a fun one:
