  1. I mean, you're not wrong, but... That's kind of not the point of "one-liners".
  2. Voice reproduction is a very active area of research. The tutorial you will need to do a good job of this (indistinguishable from real life) essentially amounts to graduate or post graduate studies in the field.
  3. Looks like a pared down KDE Plasma, of sorts. Tons of people like that UI.
  4. Well, one could argue that the GPL is not sane unless you are in the universe of GNU tools.
  5. The easiest is just python with gpiozero. It comes baked into RaspberryPi OS. An arduino is somewhat better for many tasks (including this one). It is also orders of magnitude more difficult for what you are trying to do. Just to be clear, @Deflowerer is right, a raspberry pi running a full blown OS is overkill for what you are likely trying to do. But he's wrong in the sense that it sets you up for failure. @Deflowerer forgot to account for the effort required in spinning up new knowledge. Real life engineering is about balancing costs with desired end results. Having to learn a new
  6. If I'm following this correctly, that just prints all numbers b <= n <= a where n % b = 0. In plain English, you are looking to find all multiples of b between b and a inclusive. What you should do is find the largest multiple of b less than a. We can do this by writing: int largestMultiple = div(a, b) * b; Then you would just continually subtract b from largestMultiple until you are equal to or less than b, printing as you go along. This is about as efficient as it gets, because it only requires as many iterations as there are multiples of b such that b <= mu
  7. Can you share your specific testing methodology? There are many factors that could cause significant differences in results, especially if you only ran the test once each.
  8. Those aren't terrible temperatures, but there's room for improvement. If you find it difficult to understand, you can just leave it alone, and if those are really the peak temperatures, you should be fine for many years still.
  9. There were two different allegations: One that alleged that two different products from two different companies (admittedly, owned by the same parent company) sometimes accidentally traded with each other. The allegation admits that these were accounted for and shown to the public. The other allegation is that someone was also manually engaging in wash sales to bolster the numbers. The second one is a serious crime with serious penalties. The first one is a flimsy allegation, and if it holds up , a whole lot of firms are going to have to do some very serious rest
  10. This is one is a stretch. Mostly because, by the governments own admission, Coinbase did in fact publish the information about them trading to themselves. If various traders or agencies were too dumb to take the volume/liquidity net of those disclosures, that's not Coinbase fault. This is also flimsy because, since Coinbase did disclose that information to the public, the government would have to prove that they took active steps to make it's disclosures difficult to find or read with the express intent of misleading the market. However, the rest of the accusations are
  11. Facsimile machines have a place. They can be made to be much more secure than email, and automatically generate paper copies at all ends. I hate most driver assist technologies. If the car can't drive itself, I don't want it taking control.
  12. Then this entire discovery is academically interesting, but a non-issue for users. If someone can get your processor to enter debug mode (especially without unfettered physical access) then there's a much bigger problem somewhere else, and the end user is already fxed. The feds can, and have, installed hypervisors that can hide themselves in certain hard drive controllers. This was the major capability of the EquationGroup's espionage platforms, or so says Kaspersky.
  13. In my personal opinion, the Grid is one of the most overused elements in WPF. You can build this with 6 StackPanels, which will make it easier to add, remove, or change the game elements, and virtually not change in any way your ability or means to control the relative sizes of components. Here's a graphic to help visualize this. As a tip for building a layout this way, docking the stackpanels to simple window locations is useful, and so are the horizontal and vertical alignment properties available on the StackPanel element.
  14. Thermal paste is like good sushi: You need to clean your pallet with 99% isopropyl alcohol first. /sarcasm
  15. cannot hold a match to the most powerful application processors. https://kinvolk.io/blog/2019/11/comparative-benchmark-of-ampere-emag-amd-epyc-and-intel-xeon-for-cloud-native-workloads/ If you look at these benchmarks, the ARM CPU outperforms the x86/64 processors in memory accesses. Which is a reasonable and expected conclusion since these processors exist mostly because AWS commissioned them to help run their database and AI offerings, which could really really benefit from a lot of in memory databases (hence high blocking I/O performance was the main point of optimization). I
