For me it's when I discoverd a Vim plugin for outlining called VOoM (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2657)

It (1) works, (2) is well documented, (3) doesn't go against Vim like so many plugins do. It must have been such a pain to write, because it works so well and achieving that is a pain with Vimscript. Knowing through that someone went through that to add this wonderful feature to my favourite editor made me genuinly happy.

>> No.62901335

I was just memeing about the time domain stuff. I have 3 oscilloscopes lying around and they get a lot of use. It's very useful to have spectrum analyzers too though for several reasons. You can often get a lot more information about a signal by looking at it in the frequency domain that you can't easily see in a time domain representation. Beyond that spectrum analyzers usually have much higher bandwidths than oscillscopes. Modern scopes will go up to about 1-2GHz. Modern spectrum analyzers can go beyond 50GHz. For any RF work a spectrum analyzer is essential. Mine only goes to 40MHz which is less than all of my scopes but I wanted one that was relatively cheap and could read down close to DC (most 80s-90s era spectrum analyzers are like 9kHz to 1-10GHz).

This thing.

It's an absolute piece of garbage. It's packing a single-core 1.6GHz 32-bit processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 4GB SSD. It's not even suitable for the most basic office work, and if I want an up to date OS I'm familiar with, I have no choice but to go with a minimal Debian install with no GUI. I couldn't even complete the install without physical access to a router so I could use its ethernet, because this thing has a Broadcom wireless chip, which is unsupported by free software distributions.

And yet...

That's only relevant to the general topic, not the specific discussion at hand.

Also, in comparison to the pool of total people that there are, the pool of people who have committed mass shootings is far too small to make that sort of judgement with any reasonable certainty. The true probability may be quite far off from the experimental probability, since the sample size is so small.

It's not a meme. Autists lack empathy and cope with emotional stresses poorly. It's no wonder why many of them get violent. I've always taken a hardline stance on the mentally ill.

I didn't say it was a good thing. I'm simply implying there is a significantly elevated probability that you eventually go on to commit some kind of mass shooting during some period of emotional distress. It'll either happen when you fail out of actual uni because you aren't as smart as you think you are, or it'll happen because you get rejected by a girl. I'm not sure which. Those are the two events most likely to trigger a killing spree in an autist.

It's arguably more expensive to have to send the police out all the time to clean up after the mess an autist leaves in their wake of their spergout. And frankly we should be spending whatever amount of money it takes to stop people getting killed by these violent monsters.

First of all, as I said before, the statistic you're talking about is based on such a small sample size it's almost certainly not representative of the general population. While there are certainly disproportionately many mass shooters who are autistic, there are so few mass shooters, autistic or otherwise, that the sample they comprise of the total population cannot be used to judge it. Therefore, the statistical disparity within that tiny sample probably does not reflect a qualitative disparity in the general population.

Furthermore, even if we assume this tiny sample IS representative, my elevated chances of committing a mass shooting are still many orders of magnitude away from 100%. You talk about my prospective involvement in such a crime is an inevitability, but really it's still just a very tiny chance. It's like comparing a grain of sand to an amoeba and complaining about how big the grain of sand is.

For the first time ever: my phone. Every time I buy a new phone it seems like such a waste of money and I'm never really happy with what I get. I end up trying everything about a dozen times and settling finally on the one that makes me the least miserable.

Then I picked up a moto G5+ on a total whim. I didn't want a new phone, I certainly didn't need a new phone, but I bought it anyway figuring if nothing else I could use it as a kodi remote and find other neat shit to do with it. I knew that tinkering with it the way I wanted to meant rooting it, so I learned how and unlocked the bootloader and rooted my phone. Simple enough. But the more I played with it, the more fun I was having... It was like 1994 again, when I did my first Linux install. Over the next few days I scarcely touched my iPhone. Now, I'm turning my Mac into a media server connected to my TV and using the iPhone as a remote and the G5+ is my daily use phone.

Yeah, radio tech is pretty rad. Let's not even begin on how comfy it is. If you wanna try it out, start with the stock RTLSDR which you can find on ebay/aliexpress for ~5$. If you got a bit more to spare, get the chink modded version on aliexpress for ~40$ which goes from 100kHz to 1.7GHz as opposed to the 24Mhz to 1.7GHz with the stock one. RTLSDR's are *very* versatile and cheap, but they have interference problems (which you can reduce by various methods) and you need a computer to use them propertly. I tried to use them with my android phone but it was very janky and didn't seem to work that well. You also have a lot of SW radios which range from like ~10$ to audiophile solid gold cable prices. The cheaper ones aren't as versatile but they're portable, have less issues with interference and are max comfy!
