And at the end of the day, it's just garbage. I would understand this for a bank or crypto wallet.
How to decode the Voyager 1 signal - https://destevez.net/2021/09/decoding-voyager-1/
An interesting article focusing on using python and GNU Radio to decode a recording in which Voyager 1 transmissions are included. A great look into modulation techniques and data transmission protocols. It still amazes me that we can receive data from the Voyagers after travelling so far.

Hey you! Yes you! Do you make music or short films? Do you struggle to get a clean polished sound out of your mix? Do you need to get your project ready for physical release?
Let me take the hassle off! I'm now taking commissions for Mixdown & Mastering! I have a decades worth of experience, an Audio Engineering & Production degree, and more self-made projects on my bandcamp than i care to count! Moreover, I've worked with Electronica producers, recorded 5 piece djent metal bands in studio, and done audio work for a plethora of short films!
Hire me now, and work with a rad queer woman!
Take a look at my commissions on ko-fi!

Also: if they lived for generations underground, without ever seeing the surface. How would they perceive the world? Would they ask "what happens if we keep digging up?", and what would they expect the answer to be. Or down?
It's interesting to think about the development of philosophy/science/mythos of an underground society.
This is a huge deal:
The Open Collective Foundation has just announced: "OCF now offers employment options to initiative workers—with health insurance!" https://blog.opencollective.com/oc-news-nov-2021/
If your FLOSS project is on OpenCollective, you can hire a maintainer as an employee! With health insurance & 401(k)!
This is such a huge step forward for open source sustainability, in particular for projects with key contributors in the United States. Let's talk about why! https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2021/11/24/0
job hunting (boosts welcome)
idk if it's allowed here, but i'm currently on the hunt for a flexible part time job (ideally no more than 16 hours/week, and should be at least £10/hour, or around that much, no less than £9/hour) that can be done remotely/from home, within the UK timezone (if applicable).
i'm mainly looking for jobs that are either:
- tech support
- technical writing
- frontend web development
- editorial writing (i.e. writing for articles)
so if anyone can help me out with this, that'd be great
Tired: static linking for software libraries.
Wired: static linking for web pages.
For example, tech blogger Gwern keeps a local copy of almost all externally linked web pages so they will still be readable decades later. https://www.gwern.net/Design Perhaps more people should do that.
