mindblowing new discovery in Conway's Game of Life: any buildable pattern in Life can be constructed from the collision of 15 gliders.


the key principle: distance itself can be used to encode information. by determining the correct starting [x,y] coordinate for each glider, any future state of the Life universe can be created, with effectively unbounded complexity. 🤯

@irohsint Is there a way to limit the size of media caches, and delete older stuff when that size is exceeded?

I've run into the same issue on my server.

It's better for everyone if you run my full-rbf branch, as that makes for a stronger, decentralized, set of interconnected full-rbf peers. But if you just want to use the new 'mempoolfullrbf=1' option in the upcoming v24.0 release, that's ok too.

If you want to run full-rbf, and don't have any full-rbf peers, you can connect to these nodes:


...and for testnet:


I've also made a branch of Bitcoin Core v24.0 with preferential peering, to auto-connect to full-rbf peers:


One reason why you should set 'mempoolfullrbf=1' on your nodes, and especially, mining nodes: insane people like Craig Wright would love to find excuses to sue miners for mining double spends.

Better to set the standard now: unconfirmed means unconfirmed.

@orionwl @jcorgan It's about as technologically challenging as email. Not that easy. Not that hard.

@orionwl From a different side of the political sphere too. Which might help this stick.

the apple studio display (which of course has an Ax chip in it and standard iOS-style secure boot/update with personalized-to-serial updates) cannot be purchased in-person with cash if you want the VESA mount. you need to provide payment card info (identity) to get the serialized device. even our monitors are trackable now.

TFW when you block and report someone for spamming every repo with identical code of conduct requests. 😂

Finally got around to fixing my Mastodon node. 😂

Seems like an interesting time for mastodon!

Geothermal's Path to Relevance: Better Heat Transfer and Heat Engines

“The fracking revolution has driven a massive shift in the industry away from scientists like geologists and toward practitioners that are often engineers. … Partly this is because there is no need to "discover" shale formations since they have been known to the industry for 100+ years. And partly because the engineering-based learning model has thumped the scientist model recently.”
