Wait what's wrong with the SEC now?

Crypto goons keep telling us "code is law". Well, the code allowed this. Nothing that happened here was against the system's rules.
And now they want to go crying to the jackbooted statist thugs. I thought all of this nonsense is supposed to evade the authorities (it never does, they're just dumb enough to think it does).
Thanks for the entertainment, Jimbo!
The Australian government has, quite reasonably IMO, told numerous overseas companies that if they want to accept money from and provide services to Australians, they must comply with Australian corporation and consumer laws, even if they have no office here. Although if it's a free service I think the government's available remedies become less gentle, such as IP blocks.
Bjorn Nyland has noticed differences in what the dash displays vs. what is being shown on the CAN bus for some cars.A bit of an aside but I get the impression this kind of thing isn't unusual and could even be routine. For example, when the speedometer in my particular car displays 120 km/h, an OBD-2 scanner shows 111 km/h, which can be confirmed using GPS. The sensor is accurate and the car knows exactly how quickly it's moving, but it lies to the user. I wonder how many other gauges/readouts/etc. are doing the same?
The name "Hugging Face" doesn't fill me with confidence.
The larger and more complex these models become, the less tractable the problems of "bias, hallucinations, and jailbreaks" are, surely?
Who would have thought there was anything dodgy about selling pictures of cartoon apes?
Correction: ...selling cells in an append-only spreadsheet containing URLs that currently point to pictures of cartoon apes.
And there's no reason the same URL can't be included in multiple cells...
Likewise. There's every chance the specific launch is identified in the documentary; wouldn't it seem weird (although this might be hindsight speaking) for them to attend a Voyager launch and then not mention it?
Now to track down a copy...
Surely everyone is entitled to be heard, no?Only to a point, for the simple reason that "free speech" can never be absolute. You can't yell "fire" in a packed theatre. You can't* incite violence. So no, everyone is not entitled to be heard in all circumstances.
And an LLM developed by a private organisation isn't subject to the First Amendment, even when it is based in the USA...
* Although the Americans are currently trying to work this one out.
A fully fuelled SH+SS stack contains 4,600 tonnes of propellant, of which 21.5% is methane. At 55.7 MJ/kg, that 0.99 kilotonnes of methane contains as much chemical energy as 13.3 kilotonnes of TNT.
So yeah, if it ever mixed thoroughly with the LOX before igniting, Starbase would be a write-off...
The traditional carmakers have also been doing it for 100 years, while Tesla has been working out how to design and assemble a car as it goes along. It's learning quickly, sure, but by many accounts it still has a lot of catching up to do.
Feedback used to be* my favourite part of the magazine. Among other things it gave us Nominative Determinism, after all. I imagine 325 is simply a mis-transcription of "three to five"...
*Probably still would be if I was still a subscriber. I cancelled after one too many "WAS DARWIN/EINSTEIN/WHOEVER WRONG?" covers.
I think David Gerard's response after offering to help the BBC with a blockchain ("DLT") working paper, and then learning what the paper was really about, would be appropriate here too:
My recommendation was that the correct BBC approach to DLT would be for BBC Business News to investigate these ideas in depth as ongoing frauds. I also recommended an internal investigation as to how this document got this far, with a view to ensuring it never happened again.
Fair enough! You might already be aware of this, but Alt+PrtScr takes a screenshot of the active window only. This is the mode I use the vast majority of the time (and what IME most people who use the snipping would be better off doing anyway). It obviously doesn't help if you want a shot of more than one of your open windows, though.
It should be reasonable to expect that your edits get "solidified" when you save or print to PDF and the hidden parts of images do get deleted...
I recall that an Australian police unit once made this same mistake in a terrible way by embedding cropped images of child abuse material in reports that they had produced: https://www.theregister.com/2004/11/26/oz_police_abuse_pics_mistake/
