A funny cooking scene from Ousama Ranking:

Yes, bad cooking resulting in a purple goo is an old trope, but it always makes me smile when people force themselves to eat it... but after the first spoonful they can't conceal their disgusted reactions! ๐Ÿ˜„

"We value your privacy" = newspeak for "We live on your data"

Actually, the version of Samurai Shodown which I played a lot as a kid was this one:

With Google Translate's aid, I figure that it's written ใ€Œใ„ใ–ใ€ๅฐ‹ๅธธใซๅ‹่ฒ ใ€, literally: "let's, common/normal match".

And this is where I heard this sentence countless times: before every match in my favorite fighting game Samurai Shodown!

In an episode of Hanyou no Yashahime, right before a fight, Towa says: "iza, jinjou-ni shoubu!"

And it rang a bell. Where have I heard this sentence over and over again?

The English subs liberally translate it to "Let's make it a fair fight!", but it must be some set expression...

paleo? Now it's a thing.

I don't share the core beliefs of the paleo diet, but reducing carbs is probably good for most people.

If the "PC-xxxx" rating was supposed to reflect the actual memory bandwidth in MB/s, where does the DDR5 speedup come from? Maybe lower latency for scattered memory access?

I hate pumpkin pies, but pecans pies are irresistible... ๐Ÿคค

Landed! I'm spending this Thanksgiving with some good friends who live in the Bay Area, all ex-coworkers.

Next, I have to take the LAX airport shuttle. It's every 10 minutes, and also free.

@codewiz I used an out of the box configuration format so that I can get started with neovim with Lua faster!


It has most features and toolsets enabled by default, and also we can add our own custom configuration in a separate file, to make it modular.

Foggy infrared. More to come.
Only available in red, because pushing those images closeer to 600nm (yellow) results in some very ugly pixelation. #infrared #photography

Hey, it seems I gave up too fast!

My semantic completions were already in the menu, just BELOW the useless snippets...

I guess I just I need to tweak my config to reorder them... and also use TAB to complete (instead of Enter)...

...and also figure out how to theme the menu so I don't get flashes of shocking pink while I'm trying to focus on the code ๐Ÿ˜‚
