Repost from birdsite: NVIDIA Turing arch whitepaper [pdf] https://www.nvidia.com/content/dam/en-zz/Solutions/design-visualization/technologies/turing-architecture/NVIDIA-Turing-Architecture-Whitepaper.pdf
I am intrigued! Besides the headliner RTX and tensor-core stuff, there's a bunch of smaller features:
• Mesh shading
• Variable shading rate
• Texture-space shading
• Multi-view rendering
Details are still sparse; looking forward to seeing more.

I was filling in my lottery ticket when a note suddenly appeared, with numbers and "play these", in my handwriting. I played those.
I didn't win. The numbers I had picked first, but didn't play, did.
Another note appeared: "sorry, but the wealth ruined you/me"
Then both faded.

Neat: “New results suggest that [cellular] plasticity may go even deeper than scientists have thought. Three research teams have observed that during tissue regeneration, the typical solutions offered by adult stem cells (and the de-differentiated cells resembling them) aren’t enough. Instead, the cells of the damaged tissue turn the clock back all the way to a more fetal state, tapping into the proliferative power that once characterized development.” https://www.quantamagazine.org/in-paligenosis-adult-cells-turn-fetal-to-heal-wounds-20180829/
I have been programming since like 1985 and I just realized this minute that a "corner case" is, like, where an edge case hits another edge case and gets even weirder. I've been using "edge case" and "corner case" as synonyms without ever thinking about it.
Thanks so much, C++
He sings the song of his people
human energy technologies, a medley
(1) set living things on fire
(2) feed some living things to other living things and make them pull and lift stuff
(3) put a wheel in the way of moving wind or water
(4) set the remains of distant dead ancestors on fire
(5) put a lot of dangerous rocks together in one place until they get more dangerous and really hot
(6) use the sun to lift and stack heavy things, and then drop them later
Carmine looked sooo different when he came home from Seattle Humane two years ago, after recovering from surgery and a leg injury. Since then he's put on some weight and grown his fur out! He is a floof machine. Pics: then and now.
Oh, it turns out there was plenty more chocolate under the surface, even though it doesn't look like it 😄
Hmm, think I should have put in more chocolate chips
Anyone who picked up a copy of Real-Time Rendering 4E, keep an eye out—there may be one or two cameos by yours truly 😎

Chocolate chip cookies are happening! Or, well, cookie dough is happening. Gonna let it chill overnight and bake tomorrow.
