Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

That gushing sound you heard is every white-shoe corporate law firm in the country salivating over the billable hours to come. Twitter is apparently determined to make this true: they just contracted with the law firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. Wachtell is notable for a few things, incl...

Re: Adventures of the Longest Muskrat

Twitter's management has already stated they intend to pursue the deal in court, at the original $44 billion price.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

It seems like a worrisome sign to receive a jury duty summons that specifies six days just for jury selection, followed by 23 days stretching across eight weeks already allocated for the trial itself.

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.

But if we're talking about full campaigns, the Crusades are tough to outdo. Even Vietnam didn't check all the boxes.

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.
