My small achievement for today:
I got "first post" on Slashdot.
(Yes, they're still around! And it's a crap ghost town. I saw a story and made a comment and then realized I got F1RST!!!1)
[ https://goo.gl/fyEzkc ] if anyone cares :)
Didn't we used to have a Small Accidents room?
Helped a friend paint their new place today. But my favorite sneakers must have been frightened. As soon as I got there and pulled out the paint the sole of my right sneaker pulled off near completely; held on only at the toe.
So what does any geek in this situation do? Why duct tape it of course! But of course, just as I finish my perfect taping job and stand to go to work...the *other* sole pulled off! And yes...that one also got the Tape Treatment.
All I needed was a pair of glasses on which to put matching duct tape....
How old were the sneakers and what brand? I have noticed lately sneakers fall apart very quickly.
My sneakers don't.
I purchase 'classic' style sneakers, which are difficult to find, but helpfully give me the appearance of living on this planet, rather than space-walking near Omicron 3.
Hey, what's wrong with Omicron 3? :-P
Zoo, They were probably circa 2010 New Balance sneaks. Probably the most comfortable I've ever worn.
I have given up on NB, I always thought they were great sneakers, that lasted a long time. Now they don't seem to last and are very uncomfortable.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with space-walking near Omicron 3.
However, I do not wish to appear as if that is what I am doing.
I've been a fan of NB for a long time; they come in widths that accommodate my somewhat wide feet. That's nice and comfortable.
Also they're still made in the USA, which is a win.
Well, I managed to work the pipeline back to instruction decode stage, and it now properly decodes memory stores (8, 16, 32, and 64-bit) as well as register-immediate ALU operations. This is sufficient to spoonfeed the pipeline with instructions to load a register with arbitrary value, as well as to store said value at an arbitrary address. It's not Turing complete yet, but it's getting there.
Not only did I get a new job - but I even get a new job together with my boss (who r0cks)!
Loved the old job.....loved the old team
New execs ruin everything
New job is awesome!
