I've been strongly opinionated that CPU vendors are not paying the price of getting their confidential computing technologies to upstream but just made up analogue what goes wrong.

Think of desktop Linux. It is not business at scale but it is still mandatory piece for enabling business at scale.

Think of the world where Linux would run only on data centers but all development could be done only in Windows, and for testing, even when just playing with an idea, you would need a server rack with four figure price.

This is the world of confidential computing.

With Linux 6.10 #ntsync driver combined with #wineasio you can get better #Windows than native Windows is for audio in some ways.

FL Studio is fast and smooth and you can do incremental backups for your full audio setup by simply archiving the wine folder. E.g. try a random plugin and revert back to previous wine folder after the experiment with all the crap cleaned up.

When it comes "non-inclusive" language and even "toxic language", I try to keep somewhat high threshold before making any conclusions.

Sometimes a non-native speaker can do that by mistake because of less vocabulary and taking this into account is also one way of being "inclusive".

Usually when I get a response that feels just nasty the action I take is not to respond at all because when people get pissed trying to discuss about it just leads to non-constructive debate. Sometimes there's reason for that nasty response, e.g. a mistake that I've made or something I've ignored, but there are better and worse work weeks, and life outside the work affects the performance.

That is the reason why I think not responding at all to a "more toxic" response is the best action taken because also the person who responds might just have a bad week, and despite CoC and everything people sometimes cannot control their nerves - that's just human.

If my #LKML responses have been a bit confusing this week there’s a good reason for that:

  1. I had covid infection first part of the week unknowingly.
  2. Latter part of the week I’ve been recovering from that.

Thanks for understanding :-) I’m already feeling fine and should be again full capacity next week. Apologies about any possible confusion or whatever.

I saw a while (this year anyway) ago a photo in Facebook taken by my friend working at hospital with XP running some medical system (no clue what it was exactly). Who knows what other mission critical systems there still are with XP deployed :-) https://www.neowin.net/news/end-of-life-microsoft-finally-terminates-support-for-windows-xp/

John Gartner is a psychologist who, as founder of Duty To Warn, has raised the alarm about Trump's declining mental fitness. This week, we had the honor of interviewing him for a disturbing conversation about why he’s more worried than ever that the media and the public are missing all the blaring red signs that Trump is slipping rapidly into dementia. https://thinkbigpicture.substack.com/p/john-gartner-trump-cognitive-decline

Found a solution for General MIDI: I forgot that I had upgrade my KORG Classic Collection and it has VST version of Triton, which has a bank for this. KORG's plugins are overally so much better and more stable than what Roland offers and no cloud crap required. They are actually the best software versions of their gear, which is how it should be. With e.g. TB-303 emulation you are better off with D16's Phoscyon2 or perhaps Arturia's ACID-V (have not tested the latter).

Edit: there are suggestions out there that this story is not actually true. So sad, who ever heard of something not being true on the Internet? But does anybody doubt that something like this *will* be true in the near future?

I'm not expert with #JTAG probes so no understanding how compatible probes from different vendors are with each other.

I've mostly used #Lauterbach probes in the past but not very often.

So anyway, I grabbed the info from Internet that with #VisionFive2 SBC Segger J-link family of probes are known to work. Are they my only choice or is there some good and perhaps cheaper but compatible options?

I wonder if anyone has made something to enable playing General #MIDI playback in #Bitwig? Like for e.g. game soundtrack type of stuff.

In #FLStudio there is a General MIDI soundset for #FLEX, which is sort of like a built-in rompler in that DAW. If you import a MIDI file let's say game music from 90s Sierra or Lucas Arts game FL will automatically use this soundset and pick the correct instruments.

Thought that FL part is worth of mentioning because it is not that common knowledge, e.g. I found it by accident :-) What happens in Bitwig is that you get the stock Organ instrument to every channel.

Sound Canvas SC-88 is the only plugin I've ever picked from #Roland it is total garbage. I've never got it run on any machine that I've owned (have had it for 1.5 years, and have occasionally tried it). Also the only plugin I've ever grabbed from Roland (unsurprisingly).

Looking for job by the end of Sep as my contract ends by then at the university. Contact me for queries, resume etc. Just needs to scale to kernel and remote work, not looking for "best offer", "best benefits" or anything like that (I have paid already my mortgage loan and do not have any other debt). I just need a job just fills the above requirements.

Nice #article about nuts and bolts of #VisionFive2: https://sizeof.cat/post/starfive-visionfive-2/

I found this when searching for information on what pins I should use to enable #JTAG, which I think I can eventually sort out with some info from this article :-)

"'[…]this whole "nested LSM" stuff as a design goal just needs to be all rolled back, and the new design target is "one LSM, enabled statically at build time, without the need for indirect calls."

Because we're now in the situation where the security hooks are actually a source of not just horrible performance issues, but also actual insecurity[…]"'
