Had to re-do the page again

Jan 15 2023.

This used to be a page discussing some stuff from this book.

The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant from Two Centuries of Controversy

The aspects were mostly mathematics, mostly Bayes, a little bit of number theory.
Then it got to string theory and ZK, so I decided to remove the page. I am in USA. SFBA.
There are plenty of other pages on this website, that are more conventional.

Some people say it's about expansion.
Some people say it's about perfection.
Some people pretend the choice does not matter.
It does matter.

  • How Redditors Exposed The Stock Market | The Problem With Jon Stewart - has a nice diagram(s) (and overall good explanation of what was happening).
  • Infinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern World.
  • Do only what only you can do - Dijkstra
  • Their book is frequentist book
  • Cornell is a monopoly

    Also Wolfram. And most important of all is "The Unfinished Game" by Keith Devlin. Jan 31 2023.

    Firgured out a way to improve on Wolfram. Nonfungible MR.

    Latest (GNU) Linux distributions are in direct violation of UNIX social protocols. BSD is not.
    You follow that track and you find the one and only guy on this planet who is working on your code for the last 30 years.

    Yes, the divide between BSD (which is UNIX) and (GNU) Linux started on systemd. Introduced in 2010.

    In some territories the words "mad" and "crazy" can no longer be used (by decree, of course). Can't make this stuff up.

    Nostra gives hope.

    Yes, the smartest GNU peoplez *still* don't underdstand how to use classic UNIX tooling so they re-implement some weird offsprings that are subsets basically. netcat is hard to figure out, but it provides everything one might ever need. Via coproc.

    The stuff lawyers started in EU is really easy to read, but I can not possibly write about that stuff here.

    I am optimistic about the future of the planet, after watching recent Oscar Shorts (plenty was GPT generated, but it does not matter). What matters is that I remember very well the Oscar Shorts that we watched in this area long time ago and *this* future is *way* better that the *previous* future. Yes, might be hard to belive looking at modern EU, but modern EU degenerates in management are all temporary. Their money feed had been cut off already. Bottom line - (average) planet's future looks surprisingly good.

    Should write about simple stuff.

    Since .22 Ubuntu is no use, basically.

    Several years ago one guy from the north mistyped his email on some website. (He typed my email instead of his). So for a few years now I am getting the emails that are sent to that email. It's amazing really. That email got re-sold several times, so all those spammers are sending the spam that is "his" and they are sending it to me thinking, that I am him. Need to change emails every few years, I think. In the past could move, but since 2008 moving around is basically not possible in the USA.

    'tee' should have been the property of the OS/kernel, *not* the fancy trick in userspace. Similarly to 'use strict' being default. (The only thing Larry regrets. And he is correct regretting that) This means UNIX story is not over. Not over at all.

    First outage that was 1 week long. Fish died in a fish tank.

    The expert-system-as-virus program "Animals" (pretext to chatgpt) spread very fast and exhausted all existing computer resources. I can not find anything about this program. 70s are baaack. First question the system asked was "Is this a cat?"
