This page collects comments which make unnecessary or tenuous analogies to computers, programming, dollar-sign $variables, sed's/replace/syntax/g, mathematics, AI/machine learning, and cryptography in discussions that aren't about those things.
> Some reporter finds out that $government is doing $bad_thing. They pack up the evidence, rush out the door to talk to their editor. A slick, self-driving car pulls up as they exit the building, they enter and pull away.
> \> personally never understood why one would pick this over date/hour
> Providing a timestamp gives you the same information with higher precision _provided you know when now is_. I can tell you what day of the week it is, but not what the day of the month it is. Sometimes day of the week even takes extra cycles.

> Unacademy focuses on test prep and thier anthem while sappy and gung ho, doesn't really have any references to gaming the system. *Crack it* is in the same vein as *Cracking the Coding Interview*.
> > Which is gaming the system, if you ask me.

> I own a business. If I was to do a full inventory, I would probably find I'm in the possession of tens of thousands of items. I'm currently in the situation where something breaks daily. It has forced me into being very picky. I no longer buy things, if I can avoid it. Every thing I buy has the potential of being a problem down the line that will require time and attention. Even disposing of broken things can be a big hassle.

> He wrote an OS project that runs all the infrastructure for your very own dictionary website.
> > For the confused reader: s/OS/OSS/
> > Who else has an install base like Amazon in their Alexas and Rings?
> a company like Arris that sells DOCSIS3/3.1 cablemodems and GPON end user CPEs to big ISPs like Shaw, Comcast, Charter, Wave/RCN, etc. The main problem with that concept is that if a manufacturer of residential CPEs such as Arris made a unilateral decision to incorporate the tech into their cablemodems and other devices, their $BIGISP customers might not be pleased about it and would buy elsewhere.
