Alas, so far the whole world cannot stop one elderly dictator who wanted to play “soldiers”. Against this background, everything else simply does not matter.

It is on YT under the "Robert Miles AI Safety" channel:

Compare the URLs and you'll see why I did not mention it.  ;-)

But now for something not completely dfferent:

Some interesting/scary things can happen when ChatGPT plays with copies of itself.
And I bet we'll see commercial products based on such faster than this gets safe/stable.

I've no problem with the "electric" in general, but I'd have no power line near my parking space and using public charging stations just would increase the ankle bracelet function of these modern spy-phones on wheels.

The Y2014 model I currently have probably is the last one I can get without the now mandatory call home function on emergencies/crashes which I do not trust to only phone home then.  It even has only a classic radio instead of an android media centre!  And with only needing to see a gas station 4..5 times a year, a switch to something different just does not calculate for me.  Luckily!

May it last long and meanwhile: Public transport please improve!

Ok ... I'm pro electric, but I claim you just can't get such a thing without being permanently traced.

32bit systems are still supported by the BSDs & Haiku, so they don't need to be thrown out just yet......


FreeBSD and OpenBSD already announced turning i386 into a 2nd class citizen too.

And with all this steam lining for commerce, it'll be only a question of time until they declare ARM32bitters to trash too?

HaikuOS is a Do-Everything-As-Root-OS, so definitely not a wise choice except inside a really secure LAN.

NetBSD remains.

Maybe devuan will try to support 32-bit long term.

I think that's too optimistic.

I will not bet on this to happen.

Why turn them into trash?
I've Devuan on a Netbook.

FreeBSD and OpenBSD announced to treat 32bit PCs as 2nd class architectures too.
Great times for NetBSD... :-Þ

What would be won?  I think most of the next species with technology would run into the same trap.  So they'll just iterate making a mess too.  Even AI, unless it is a hive mind.  Which will have some problems with the universal speed limit of causality.  It either would need to slow down with increasing size or split into separate individuals.  With all the consequences of limited resources and competition.  Back to start, then via mess to extinction.  That'll just be the next groundhog day for the universe...

What a waste.  ;-D
