tfw you finish reading a paper and you're like "that was a long abstract"

``GPUVM is similar to the legacy gart on older asics, however rather than there being a single global gart table for the entire GPU, there are multiple VM page tables active at any given time.''

... and a pain in the ass during debugging. Why couldn't they just live with one gart table?😕

was fun. I still have lots to learn but I managed more than thirty seconds, and cooperated with some new DJs.

...especially after a tiny couple of changes in gui.py changing the up & down arrow to k & j.

Eating my own dog food with the driver modified. So far, so good. Although some kind of deadlock occurs once a day, I easily break it in the debugger, but I can’t find a specific place.😕

I finally ordered a Pinebook Pro to replace my Chromebook given that Google has just really been going out of their way lately to ruin Chrome OS lately. I hope it ships soon.

On the plus side, the actual new code to support all our new fancy addressing for document locations and more complicated document structure, which I pulled apart and rewrote about 3 times when trying to find this bug, is now really clean and easy to read.

Old lessons about searching for keys under lampposts might be applicable for avoiding this sort of waste of time in the future.

``The easy, familiar approach often has nothing in its favor except that it requires less thinking; not a great virtue when writing high-performance code—or when moving.''🤣

Flatpak is a bad idea.
AppImage is a bad idea.

Bringing pure binary approaches (no fetchable sources via same means) to software deployment in F/LOSS is going to splinter communities and make debugging and licensing even MORE of a burden (v2.jacky.wtf//post/5c7ac97d-a4)
