What’s going on with UI lately? The X and Y coordinates have to be exactly the same on mouse button down and mouse button up. It’s impossible to click on buttons using my Wacom tablet. I remember having struggles on Samsung’s website once, with emoji selection on KDE, and with so

Elon Musk was advocating for governmental regulation around AI development. I’m not sure what his current stance is. In general, I disagree. Even if he’s right about regulations, if we’re going to have them, they should be worldwide. Again, I want to emphasize that I disagree wit

I want to have an app that consolidates feeds from multiple microblogging platforms. X is fun, but sometimes it feels one-sided, with everyone praising Elon, dismissing white male privilege, and trolling woke people. At some point, I might get brainwashed. I need some other sourc

I have an idea for a game called “Backend Engineer.” The gameplay would be similar to a backrooms experience, but you’d get lost in a data center.

Another reminiscence of the early Windows days: We had a “hello world” example for Windows, and everybody was mocking that example for having an extremely heavy amount of boilerplate code. Question to Khronos: Why did you do the same thing to Vulkan?

Back in the mid-90s, I heard rumors that Microsoft was adding 3D capabilities to the Windows OS. Retrospectively, we know now that they were working on DirectX, but at that time, I did not understand the motivation behind it. It sparked my imagination; maybe Microsoft was going t

I propose an amendment to the Constitution: Congress shall make no law that abridges the freedom of not listening. ๐Ÿ˜›

Seriously speaking, sometimes I just want to save my time. I have other priorities in my life. So, I appreciate the ability on the internet to mute or ban peop

Look at this from that point of view. Evolution optimized brain consumption to 20W because the source of energyโ€”foodโ€”was the main challenge for millions of years. AI systems are not bound by energy consumption, and we know it is physically possible, as demonstrated by biologi

It is midnight. Doom-scrolling on X. I should stop doing it.

Back in the day, I was trying to understand the meaning of life. It felt like there was no meaning because once you find a meaning, you need to find the meaning of that meaning. For example, if you decide that the meaning of life is to survive, you’ll be stuck with the next quest

The average human brain consumes 20 W, which equates to 20 Wh per hour, 480 Wh per day, 175 kWh per year, and 3.5 MWh over 20 years. Thus, we have a baseline for training AGI; it should be feasible to train a model using 3.5 MWh of energy, since this is the amount required to sup

The full self-driving (FSD) trial has ended. It feels like the car has lost its soul. One pull down and she comes alive; she has her personality; she makes mistakes, being overly enthusiastic in some cases or extremely cautious in others. Now, it just feels like the car is a soul

In Unreal Engine, you can hold Alt and drag the right mouse button to zoom in and out. This method works in the viewport, blueprint designer mode, blueprint graph, and possibly many other areas. ChatGPT does not know this, so hopefully, they will include this piece of advice in f

It is really nice here. 83F. But my laptop overheated twice in a row.

Long time ago, when I had just arrived in the US and was looking for a job, EA Sports contacted me and arranged an on-site test. The test was really hard; it had 10 questions and, as I was not very experienced in programming, I was only more or less confident I had answered 6 out

I like to solve problems my way without asking permission. What I normally do is being explicit about what I am going to do and do it without waiting for permission; my expectation is that my colleagues or my lead will let me know if I am doing something that may break things and

I feel like I’m turning into a tinfoil hat crackhead, which is quite shocking to me.

Generally, I have respect for professionals, for people who spend years and tons of money in college. I have a master’s degree in physics and engineering myself, and I especially respect medical

I feel like I’m being scammed. Dentistry is not my area of expertise; as a game developer, I lack intuition about this field. Nevertheless, I’ve done as much research as I could and concluded that, in a typical scenario, I might lose $400. In the worst case, I could ruin my month

The government’s issue with TikTok isn’t that TikTok is spying on US citizens, but rather that the government itself can’t use TikTok to spy on its citizens.

With the rise of AI’s capability to fabricate digital evidence, the authenticity of Polaroid’s instant photos could make them a trustworthy source of evidence. Investing in Polaroid stocks might be wise as they may regain significance in various legal and verification contexts.
