Has... has anyone ever given birth aboard a hovercraft, I need to know

@Ste1lar it's pretty good if you have an apple watch, it just picks up all of this data automatically (and can track how well I sleep)

I'm gonna end up so annoyed with this that I end up writing my own Secret Service (GNOME Keychain/KWallet protocol) implementation, aren't I

@jorin @Kirin also tbh it was an irc take, like all of the good things on birdsite

Alan Turing will feature on the new polymer Β£50 note, entering circulation in 2021. ^_^

'β€œHe set the foundations for work on artificial intelligence by considering the question of whether machines could think,” the Bank said. β€œTuring was homosexual and was posthumously pardoned by the Queen, having been convicted of gross indecency for his relationship with a man. His legacy continues to have an impact on both science and society today.”'


lol nvm get rid of some unnecessary copying and it goes from 13h to 25s

unfortunately, it only saved 46b :( github.com/liclac/pngbomb/comm

@lyliawisteria it's in the readme, a small .png (or other image) file, that's crafted to decompress into taking up a humongous amount of RAM when opened

I got the 10.000x10.000px sample image down from 147kb to 12kb, but unfortunately the 100.000x100.000 one now takes 13h to generate (up from 10min), because zlib is rather confused at the notion that somebody would want to compress 1.16GB of zeroes


@nilsding I love pngbombs for things like this, you get fun results out of the macOS finder and windows explorer too, or if you find a web service that doesn't check bounds properly

I wanna make a much bigger one, but I first need to optimise the compression a bunch more, else they become really unwieldy

the smartest person in the world is actually lofi hip hop radio - beats to relax/study to girl. she has been studying for years now. when will she finally get to relax.

I will never get tired of this meme.

I'm now reading the deflate spec because I'm getting annoyed at how there has to be a more efficient way to store a load of zeroes if you can just make some assumptions
