  • Busty anime babes painted by the Old Masters and Stable Diffusion but mostly Stable Diffusion. (Niche Gamer)

    The algorithm has been trained with over 50,000 images from Danbooru including work by Sakimichan, and the results are what you'd expect, except:
    The only thing Stable Diffusion AI (or others) seem to have difficulty with is hands, which is hilariously something even human artists tend to struggle with.
    No nudity, but probably NSFW if you're working on a Sunday.


  • SigNoz is a monitoring tool like Datadog, only open source. (GitHub)

    They do have paid plans if you want someone else to look after everything.

    Also, the complete source code is about 2.4MB. I haven't tried compiling it yet, though I'm assuming the binaries will be larger.

    The monitoring agent alone for Datadog is 750MB installed.

    SigNoz supports the OpenTelemetry standard; the Python libraries for that total 160kB.


  • Apple's chief procurer was apparently fired for quoting the movie Arthur. (WCCFTech)

    Never speak to the cops, and seven times never speak to anyone pointing a camera at you.


  • SuperSpeed no more: USB now has sensible names. (Thurrott.com)

    It now comes in 5, 10, 20, and 40 Gbps flavours, called 5, 10, 20, and 40 Gbps respectively. There's actually two ways to get 10 Gbps on a USB-C port, but I've never seen anyone using two lanes of 5 Gbps so the chance of confusion is minimal.


  • Even with Zen 4, mitigations for security bugs carry major performance penal... Wait. (Phoronix)

    I was reading the chart wrong. In most cases, applications run faster with the security patches active. In isolated cases, as much as 40% faster. The few programs that are noticeably slower aren't real applications but benchmarks to measure the impact of specific patches.

    Overall, 72% of tests ran faster with the patches active.
