    Assembly restart. Software work. And maybe our next SoC?

    It's a Bavarian enclave within Baden-Württemberg, like Büsingen am Hochrhein. You haven't heard of it because it's a secret, known only to Bavarians, like the pleasures of the Weißwurst.

    Assembly restart. Software work. And maybe our next SoC?

    How do you assemble a pet dog? I thought Sony had stopped producing the AIBO, although the linked Wikipedia article is unclear on current availability. Is there a secret Sony factory deep in the Schwarzwald?

    Mekotronics R58X Rockchip RK3588 running Debian

    Thank you for pointing out the Linuxgizmos list. The benefit of the Firefly Station P2 is that is has 2 GigE interfaces, which makes it (potentially) ideal as a firewall/router. The Raxda Rock 3 Model A 8GB has a single GigE. You can do a 'router on a stick' with VLANS and a VLAN aware switch...

    Mekotronics R58X Rockchip RK3588 running Debian

    If you want to buy a Rockchip 3568-based system now to experiment, this seems to be available: Firefly Station P2 Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for the 'specifications'. I'm very tempted.

    Mekotronics R58X Rockchip RK3588 running Debian

    Well, not having a Big-Little architecture simplifies things. The 3568 is 64-bit, which is nice. Not relevant for the Pyra, but it also supports dual Gigabit Ethernet as well as ECC memory, which might make it interesting for a router/firewall, if it has sufficient processing power to support...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    According to a segment of BBC Radio 4 (Could have been 'Today', or 'PM', or an NHS manager on ?call You and Yours) , it is partly due to lack f adequate nursing/care-home provision. If there are no care home places, the NHS can't discharge elderly people, who take up (expensive) hospital beds...

    This discussion is putting me in mind of 'Slippery Jim' DiGriz, or even the Three, a trio with 16 members. Non quisetur

    What have you bought recently?

    Probably an (over) educated English-speaker familiar with the English tropes of a stereotypical German, and familiar with German culture (Brecht & Weill, and the origins of the melody of 'Mack the Knife'). Misunderstanding words, especially homophones, and near homophones is a theme in...

    Never mind. (Edit to add): I'll self-nominate for the (Bad) Joke appreciation corner.

    Absurdism corner

    I get email on my phone - I run IMAP, so it is a duplicate of the inbox on my home PC - and the phone service-provider uses a different network to my terrestrial ISP. So for me, it makes sense. I also manage remote networks, so it is quite useful to get an email from the local (to the remote...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    I'll repeat that I don't pretend to understand it, but the Wikipedia article points out that the sphere is divided up into 'things' where volume is undefined. This article goes into a little more (handwavy) detail https://math.hmc.edu/funfacts/banach-tarski-paradox/ And this is for the more...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    I know the sheep joke well. As for the impossibility of looking at everything, it's the difference between a logical impossibility and a practical impossibility. It's not practical, but there's nothing wrong with the logic of the process. A mind-blowing demonstration of this is the fact that...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    Mea culpa - I didn't read through the entire page, and was seduced by the good and clear explanation, which I thought was more succinct than the Wikipedia article. On the other hand, if you are trying to prove that something doesn't exist, one technique would be to look at all the things that...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    No, the body does not become increasingly ineffective at producing 'anti-spike white blood cells', unless you are talking about normal age-related changed in the immune system (elderly people have less effective immune systems, which is why they need more protection), or infection with Human...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    That's a really poor paper. It's basically a VAERS report, and provides no evidence of 'a causal relation between ICB and the vaccination' - the phrase 'cannot be excluded' can be applied to the existence of a teapot floating between the orbits of Earth and Mars. It is of zero evidential value...

    Wow! Which study are you participating in, where is it registered, and to which institution are you affiliated? I can't wait to see the pre-print. Sounds pretty major!
