According to this reddit post AMD is currently excluded from the patch.

Edit: That's for 4.15 kernel development so looks like there will be a short-term blip.

I bought The Unacceptable Faces of Freedom and Asbestos Lead Asbestos together and they are forever interwoven. Celsius or Fahrenheit?

A friend of mine used to say this band made her sick whenever she'd listen to then so of course I'd treat her whenever she'd visit. No better band to welcome in a New Year:

This is lush and makes me feel happy for some reason:

That channel mentions lo-fi hip hop a lot.

Any recommendations for that genre. I prefer instrumental over vocals but it isn't a deal breaker.

Home made curry.

I used to hangout with a bunch of Indian people and there was inevitably food involved and even more inevitably curry. In all its forms. I know curry is the leaf, but it's become the catch-all name for any combination of spices, herbs and masalas.

I spent a week or so in hospital due to an eye infection and two of my friends brought in Indian food a few of times. After their first visit, that food was like nothing I'd ever experienced before. It was only made because they cared about me and my well-being. I'm a pretty tough cookie, but after they left I wept to myself like a little child.

So. Curry.

    T I is a reflex that is characterised by a catatonic state and total loss of muscle tone ...

    Helpful to researchers and predatory orcas it may be, but the evolutionary benefit to those elasmobranchs exhibiting TI is less certain. It may serve as a defence strategy, but the advantage of sharks being able to “play dead” is not clear. An alternative theory suggests that TI may be related to mating, with males using it as a technique to temporarily immobilise the female.

Surely not every trait is selected for in isolation?

What if there are 2 traits - one beneficial and one not and both traits evolve together?

There was a lot of "soft" backlash when I deleted my accounts - from people that just assume you have an account and can see what's posted there. I hate all these content silos and walled gardens.

At least sites like reddit, twitter and hubski let you see (most) of what gets published - even if you can't join in.

Yeah that 4-way array of effects is mental.

    the possibility of missing security fixes makes me leery of a purely manual update process.

Security vulnerabilities are another topic entirely, although they certainly overlap. Any changes to external packages you use increase the risk to your code - whether you let tools automatically upgrade or do it manually. Exhibit A - left-pad.

We're still far from being able to automatically "verify" software - whatever that means in any given situation. Proving / verifying software has been a research topic since forever and still is.

We do have better tools now to help with those decisions and hopefully they'll continue to improve in the future too. Whether that's semantic versioning. property based tests, dependent types and refinement types, automatic distribution, build and test tools,... the list goes on.
