I always have such mixed feelings any time I am visiting Berlin again. It is probably the most lively place in all of Germany, the one that greets you with the overwhelming vibe of diversity and counter-establishment. It also happens to be the messiest and the most annoying - and opposing status quo without much thought also results in things like shitty mask discipline :/ Still, there are so many memories here!
тут отличная вакансия для мидла-ГД (или крутого джуна). ПК, стратегия-тактика-RPG, мидкор с уходом в хардкор. нужно будет не только выполнять техническую работу (хотя её немало), но и думать головой и решать задачи, работать на стыке ГД и нарратива. не пропустите!
There is one peculiar item among bunch of typical corporate trainings when one joins AWS - every new hire must attend mandatory machine learning crash course (not limited to developers). I am not really following this domain and was surprised how accessible simple model training is for everyone these days - you just feed bunch of data in a single python function and it spits out bunch of candidates with metrics automatically. Wow.
На сабреддите r/AnarchyChess идет эпичнейшая шахматная партия, где каждый ход выбирается по самому заплюсованному комментарию. Даже если такой ход и не по правилам игры.
Началось все очень мирно и стандартно.

Went to watch #dune today, was not disappointed. It is a bit sad that most of game-of-throney political intrigue and paranoia buildup that took good chunk from the book did not make it in the film, however it was quite obvious that they needed to focus on one of many themes to fit in time and molding of the leader is the easiest part of the book to present. But the way #villeneuve blends high budget hollywood production with intense artistic presentation is very cool.
It seems all is not well for some inside the company that makes Signal chat client
[2/2] Today, however, I had an encounter even more hilarious in the same spirit. A bank employee was so full of righteous rage that he switched to (flawless) English right on spot just so that he can scold me about not preserving a paper letter from bank from 2 years ago with a security code - after spending about 3 seconds to issue a new one :)
[1/2] In general you can get pretty far in bigger German cities with knowing just English and maybe some very basic A1 level German. But occasionally you will hit clerks that refuse speaking in English on principle - I'd estimate roughly 1 in a 10 chance judging by recent AfD ratings. At this point I am well prepared for such encounters and start using such a terrible German that it brings them a visible pain.
I wonder if there's ever gonna be "Understanding Modern Linux Kernel", perhaps in three tomes? I'd love to return to this book, but I don't feel even 3rd edition to be relevant, especially since there's literally not going to be anything new for me to remember, because I was following 2.6 pretty closely.
Despite being partially proproietary, #plex may actually be awesome enough to fully replace MPD for me. The latest update with smarter similar song detection was a game changer.
[2/2] And with the whole free market thing you kind of want to have lot of small businesses competing, but to justify projects like that one has to get big. Like, you know, worldwide oligopoly level big. So we have a paradox where goals of maintaining a healthy economy contradict goals of efficient resource usage.
[1/2] So I am going to start working in Amazon AQUA project in September and have been going though publicly available materials recently. And couldn't help but notice how good of an example of "economy of scale" problem it is. TL; DR: at AWS scale analytical database queries make enough volume to justify developing custom hardware to accelerate just that subset.
Metahuman dreams are dead, but I am not (yet).
