@globalc I just connected my bluetooth headphones, and the volume slider wan't working. Then I went to the settings and noticed it was in HSP. Everything works fine now that I switched it to A2DP, but it's unfortunately that it wasn't the default profile.

@globalc Rawhide has never been stable enough for daily usage.

When an update breaks things, instead of rolling it back immediately, users are told to wait patiently for a future fix.

@loke It's still there in case users have trouble with .

LWN has a good article covering the history and evolution of PipeWire up to this point:

It might still be embargoed for non-subscribers, but this could be a good excuse to get an LWN subscription!

@staresaterrormessages @PeterCxy I wonder if this is the same CanvasMark?
kevs3d.co.uk/dev/canvasmark/

Isn't there anything more recent which tests modern ES6 and the latest Canvas features?

I upgraded to Fedora 34 today, and the migration from pulseaudio to pipewire did not break my sound! :yay:

@PeterCxy And yet, one of the benchmarks in which Firefox lagged behind the most was CanvasMark which, I presume, measures the performance of rendering things in a canvas:

@protheory8 Ok, I misspoke: we don't need 100% of JS code to get migrated to WASM. That won't ever happen, I agree.

All we need is for the nasty 10% of JS code which burns 90% of the cputime to be rewritten. I'm guessing there are already libraries for accelerating crypto, video processing and encoding, 3D graphics, and even more trivial things such as JSON parsing...

And so the majority of JS coders don't even need to learn Rust or C++... they just need to import those libs.

This article debunks some established popular believes about neurology, like that our brains are built in layers: reptile brain at the bottom, instinct and emotions in the middle, and rational human brain on top.

The author promotes a more holistic approach, where the brain cannot just be sectioned into separate regions to explain our emotions, our drives and mental states.

However, when it comes to brain development and maturity, we're dealing with something that can't easily be observed or measured.

Drawing a line in the sand on the safe-ish side isn't an irrational thing to do.

I was more mature than other kids in wanting to learn programming instead of playing videogames. But I was also enough impulsive and reckless to do dangerous things that could have ended my engineering career before it even started ๐Ÿ˜ฐ

@wizzwizz4 @mike @mishari

@wizzwizz4 @mike @mishari Good discussion.

It's bad to preemptively deprive all adolescents of agency, based on the assumption that they're all incapable of judgement. It's certainly not the same for everyone and it certainly doesn't change all of a sudden when they turn 18 (or whatever the legal age is in your country).

@protheory8 It's already undergoing. Your browser has had WASM enabled for a while, and several popular websites take advantage of it to offload heavy computation.

It's 100% transparent, so you won't notice unless you go check in the developer console.

@mishari I don't disagree at all. In fact, I remember reading an article claiming that brains of children who were given adult responsibility from a young age have morphological changes visible in MRI.

Also see the article that I forwarded, I found it quite enlightened.

@mishari btw, are you aware that all your toots are marked as unlisted?

@mishari And brain development has physically observable changes to neurons, like myelination of axons and synaptic pruning.

(see the "Cognitive control system" chapter in the above Wikipedia page)

@mishari Good pount, but there's also some morphological and biochemical grounds to it: the prefrontal cortex matures more slowly in humans:

RT @thord_ee_r
I keep hearing
"teens just haven't developed the part of the brain that reasons about consequences"
stated as a biological fact.

But then it occurred to me, was this determined, per normal, by studying kids who spend all their time locked in schools?
