Šodienas sasniegumi - izpratne par to, ko patiesībā nozīmē frāze "man kaut kas ir uz sirds".

Also, Nākotnes dienas svinību pasākums izdevās labi, atskaitot vienu no nez', kādas malas uzklīdušu jukušo, kuru nācās izvadīt no telpām. 8.5/10, will repeat.

Just had my first kernel panic in at least 10 years. Caused by godsdamned Skype, no less (plus probably something something kernelspace audio, since Skype itself is userspace-only).

Started learning CUDA. First impressions - in most cases, CUBLAS and CUSPARSE will have better linear algebra kernels than whatever I could write.

Update:

Julia set, drawn using CUDA and Julia language. I had to.

P.S. Sources for the interested (to run it, one would need Julia 0.4/nightly, CUDA SDK and Python (for matplotlib/pyplot, because I've been lazy and Julia/Python interop works really well for cases where raw performance is not that important)).

Perfection cannot be attained. Perfection can be approached. Optimise literally everything.

Labās ziņas: čehi ir noforkojuši Soylent, kas nozīmē, ka beidzot varēšu bez sarežģījumiem pāriet uz tā lietošanu (iepriekšējo plānu ar virtuālo ASV pastkasti un sūtījumu maršrutēšanu tā arī nebiju sācis īstenot). Ne tik labās ziņas: gandrīz nepārtrauktas galvassāpes jau otro nedēļu, pirmdien jādodas pieteikties uz skenēšanu, drošs paliek nedrošs.

Lasu MK blogu un agrīnos J. D. Bernāla darbus (no kuriem, kuriozā kārtā, var izsvītrot samērā nedaudzās atsauces uz padomju to vai ko citu un nepazaudēt neko no to jēgas un satura), gaidu uz lauka potenciālu konstanšu sarēķināšanos eksperimentā (V1 II/III slānis, tikai piramīdas), gaidu atbildes uz vēstulēm, gaidu telefona zvanus, labi vēl, ka negaidu uz otro atnākšanu.

Update:

Beidzot sāku pierast pie Julia grafikas bibliotēkām.

Izskatās, ka smadzenes ir nolēmušas piekopt minimālismu un izvēlēties tikai starp bezmiegu vai murgiem. Visu neseno notikumu sakarā to var saprast, bet tik un tā.

To study biology must be like getting to know the mind of Azathoth: trying to see with the eyes of a blind, mindless auteur of wretched and seemingly impenetrable complexity. "I FINISHED MY NOVEL!" bellows Azathoth, "I WROTE IT IN RIBONUCLEIC ACIDS, I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!", and already I dread the excessive and tangled billion-year backstory. "DID YOU GET TO THE PART WHERE "ACCTATGCCGCGTGGGGCGGGGGCTG..."? I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS BUT IT MADE ANOTHER COPY OF THE ENTIRE NOVEL!" No, not yet, I didn't.

Of course, this leads to all kinds of interpretative problems around the fringe. "My word, the brain is too complex to study. Let's assume it's mostly useless and instead postulate fanciful things about the nature of the Spirit, which let's just assume is a thing that exists."

Here's to hoping science advances quickly enough for us to be reunited with our loved ones in a better world, which implies this same Earth one for a change.

Today I learned that erotic simulated annealing first gets you all hot and then cools you down really slowly textbooks on time series modelling of multidimensional data can be actually exciting. Either I'm becoming better at appreciating things or just ever more absorbed by my work, who knows.

Alright, so sleeplessness and headache is now accompanied by nosebleed and some kind of weak but persistent nausea. This is both new and exciting.

Update: No bleeding for the last six hours, nausea has receded. In 0500 will take 10 mg of zolpidem tartrate (thx, [info]simri) and [try to] sleep.
