How Quantum Computers Break Encryption | Shor's Algorithm Explained

Admins: perhaps you should consider blocking This instance’s policies could affect the safety of many of us on the fediverse. The instance automatically rejects both local and remote reports, meaning there is no way to bring bad users and content to the attention of their moderators. See here:

In discussion within their chatrooms, I received this response:

quick note about reporting (copied from other chat room): this is correct, after deep deliberation we have concluded that no company should control speech - we have a “stay safe” guide in the pipeline, but briefly, block bad users and report illegal content - in the long-term federated, community-managed blocklists are likely the answer

This does not seem right to me - if we’re subjected to their users, the only action admins can take is to block their server rather than have our issues addressed. This makes for a poor member of the fediverse.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

"I was TODAY YEARS OLD when I learned that FORTRAN variables were implicitly typed based on their first letter ( and I-N were implicitly integer (others were real/float) and that's why I've been using i,j,k as for-loop counters for my entire life."

git tip 

I have this one repo at work that I have a *lot* of branches for, and I'm terrible at cleaning them up when I'm done with them

listing them by alphabetical order is almost useless, if I don't remember the branch name then there are just too many to remember which one I want

so I learned about `--sort`, now I can see which branches I've committed to most recently:

`git branch --sort='-committerdate'`

It's amazing how many different research papers are used in LLVM, and they're often cited in the source code!

Gotta admit, technology has gone far. These CFexpress 🅱️ois can already fit multiple TBs at a whole GB/s write speed, and the standard supports multiple TBs and up to almost 8 GB/s. And they also look quite cool, although they could be even better in colorful translucid plastics.
