Tectonic activity bends rocks all the time, even hard ones like granite. That takes a ton of heat, pressure and time. It also makes sense that in the right conditions, sheets of rock simply don't have the room to shatter so they must bend.

Have we been able to do the same in a lab and would it have any commercial use? Bending a random bit of hard rock would be an interesting novelty, for sure.

Is this satire?

I am creating a simulation to evolve simple, multi-cell organisms. (Just for fun!)

Neural networks are fairly easy to evolve, even more so when it's done by random mutations and not actual training. Build an ANN at random and introduce mutations with every generation. The ANNs that accomplish simple goals (by pure chance) live to duplicate with every evolutionary cycle. Fairly easy stuff.

I am stumped when it comes to creating something that would simulate the genes that represent a body. After some reading today, there isn't much info on how cells form into specific shapes for arms, hands, organs, etc. (I am sure there is a ton of data, but I don't know what subject to Google.)

Genes can create the patterns for specific chemicals and cells. How to cells then develop into functional body parts? What makes a heart the shape of a heart?

I think that having a better understanding of that concept can help me develop a framework for physical evolution, even if it as a very tiny scale.

(Putting the ANN in charge of controlling those different body parts is also easy. It's just a matter of allowing those physical traits to evolve first.)

That's fairly bold to ask for ~6% of the total world economy as well as a sizable chunk of the world's energy.

Eyyy! My boy Bradley Whistance popped back up on the YouTubes.

They can leech all the data they want from my employer. I don't give a fuck. Never use company assets for personal business as an addendum.

Just be a little more careful with your own stuff, s'all.

Your frame of mind is "dangerous". If you are browsing on your servers as root, you need to not manage servers anymore. If that sounded harsh, learn about attack surface area first and then I might let you back in the server room.

You won't find discussions about running browsers as root because it's not something you should need to discuss. Also, you don't need to be browsing "shady" websites to get compromised. Get that myth out of your head.

find it more convenient to use the command line from a remote desktop instead of directly SSH-ing into the system

How is extra steps and added latency more convenient? The latency of a console via remote desktop would drive me crazy. Hell, I haven't installed any kind of desktop environment on Linux server for over 20 years. It's not needed and a waste of resources. Who needs file managers anyway?

That's good to hear. The return policy for those things tend to be absolute garbage.

Nope. The media will continue to bring crime forward as a story and the perception of people will stay constant. If I had to guess, people will continue to say that crime is getting worse, or it's the worst it has ever been.

Prusa dun good with this surprise update.

Modified MINI: Revo hotend + Bondtech extruder

Side notes (will add more as I test this firmware):

  • The pre-sliced benchy from Prusa is a bit of a hack. While it does showcase the new speeds, you are not going to get the best performance when you slice it in Prusa Slicer. The new printer profile is good, but it is absolutely in alpha. (I amended a comment below where I was moving all settings to max.)

  • Factory Prusa profile for IS, only uses 0.4mm nozzles (I have been using 0.6mm nozzles exclusively for a while now)

  • If your belts are still stock, order new ones now. The stress that is getting put on the belts now is a little more extreme. (FYI: There was an error in the F1 x-gantry stop where it might wear the belt excessively, so look close.)

  • I have properly packed all the bearings in the printer with grease so they are not as noisy as they would be stock. Be prepared for bearing noise, is what I am saying.

  • Faster printing is causing ~-2°C drift on my REVO nozzle. That is expected and might be able to PID tune for better stability. It's not bad, just something of note.

  • "BonkersBenchy" was sliced with Prusa 2.6.2a. and accelerations are set at 8000mm/s^2. There are other subtle changes in the gcode that affect total print speeds, so dig into them if you need mor fasts.

  • The printer compensates OK when the print speed is manually set to 255 (absolute max). Your top layer bridges are going to have a rough time. It may work or, your print will be ripped off the bed because the first top layers aren't exactly studio quality. (I should say it adjusts to max speed better than it did with older firmware.)
