audio DSP snark 

I'm sure there's more to this, what with bits and whatnot. But still...

"This is a *dynamic* audio normalizer. Unlike static normalizers, what it does it analyzes the peak amplitude in a frame and then changes the gain amount."

"Isn't that basically just a compressor with make-up gain?"

"No no. This is *dynamic audio normalization*"

Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added

Deletion is my favorite part of writing.

@cblgh Did you actually comment a scatman video youtube link to a commit on the 100r repo, or did you get hacked?

omg. they gave the original macintosh speech synthesis engine an IMDB page:

MacInTalk was born in 1984 in California, USA. He is an actor, known for WALL路E (2008), Atop the Fourth Wall (2008) and The Spoony Experiment (2007).

Just added a 12 inch tall camping table to my mobile floor setup. This brings the total furniture weight to be about 26 pounds when weighed inside the rolling suitcase. Not bad for 2 tables, a kneeling bench, and two collapsible foot stools for speaker stands.

baking 

Out of the oven.

I cooked these at a lower temperature than usual, so the sugar didn't melt like it usually does, so there is more of a texture to it. Not sure yet how I feel about that yet. The bread part is nice though. Nice and chewy.

Mini Cinnamon rolls proofed and ready to go in the oven.

The enthusiasm of instant yeast is admirable.

Apparently 6,710 lines of org yields about 140 pages of LaTeX output. I didn't expect it would be that many pages.

Yeah I don't understand the appeal of virtual cables. Or virtual knobs for that matter.

I mean I do, but just thinking about manipulating them with a mouse gives me a repetitive stress injury.

I have a sudden urge to learn how to make baguettes. I need a new lunch staple.

Rules of three. Really hard to shake that one.

I found the box of brownies I took out an hour ago to have with my afternoon tea and forgot to put away.

Time to reward this discovery with... another brownie!

Spent the majority of my day literally muttering to myself. Talking big ideas out loud is how I develop them.
