Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Also, depending on how much you trust Tesla's own statistics, their methodology does take this into account:
To ensure our statistics are conservative, we count any crash in which Autopilot was deactivated within 5 seconds before impact.

Re: The Continuing (Mis)adventures of Car Notch

I think was 740, yeah. I had mentioned it earlier, but there were rumors he was thinking about selling SpaceX shares or something to try and compensate. At this point just take the billion penalty, geez. An interesting wrinkle is that the buyout contract does not seem to leave a lot of outs, so pot...

Re: Computerus

Sometimes you need to account for a guest and their tapeworm separately, I guess? At the one cent level, single-precision floats start missing some possible values at just above $131,000. Those are rare purchases, but certainly within the realm of "things researchers can occasionally buy",...

Re: Computerus

Today I have learned: Our purchasing system stores currency values as single-precision floats.

Re: Computerus

It surprised me in that there's 2 SSD M.2 sockets on the mobo and one is TOO BIG for the 1TB SSD i got. Like, the mounting screw hole to secure the distal end of the SSD+heatsink is a full 3cm out from the end of the SSD. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/168506701832519690/94541232597487206...

Re: Insane in the Ukraine

Just ran across this motor pool ex-mil comment on the condition of Russian wheeled vehicles and now I'm wondering how much of this offensive has been stalled because someone didn't rotate their tires. Continuing along those lines, here's another argument for "a lot", with the sub-argument...
