And I note table names like `lp_prod.MR_ELECTORAL_ROLL_OCTOBER`. Do they seriously have a seperate table for every month of Electoral roll data? But... why?!
I'd also point out that whoever generated this doesn't know how to do a JOIN properly - there are SO many duplicated entries it's ridiculous.
I don't know what happens when you're 50 times more likely than "extremely likely" to do something. It's like a relative humidity of over 100%.
Well, I may have just made an ML model that can tell the difference between my cats. It only took about 10 minutes https://lobe.ai/ Now just to export a tensorflow model and run it on a RPi to teach them not to eat each other's food!
Most people installed signal, the most important ones anyway and I really haven’t had any FOMO at all during this past month
It was easier than expected and if you haven’t done it yet I highly encourage you to do it. You can even try just uninstalling for a week and see how it goes. You probably will see it’s not that big of a deal and the majority of people that truly care about you will also go wherever you are
It's surprising how many people genuinely believe in magic words these days https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/56295261
And my point is, rather than this just being a story about my plumbing, is that software engineers do this kind of thing all the time by accident. Whilst things like feature flags are a great way to let you ship fast, they are the “service valves” in your code. If you end up not shipping that feature or turning it off later, 🔥 *delete it* 🔥. Don’t keep it around “just in case we need it”. If I wanted an outdoor tap, I wouldn’t be reconnecting it to that pipe again!
The pipe which originally fed it was still there ! Coming out of the property, to an inaccessible location around the back. And now pissing water at mains pressure everywhere. I can only imagine that the plumber (or more likely handyman) wanted to disconnect the tap, but thought it was easier to just cut the pipe out and use a service valve inside to stop water coming out of it, rather than replacing the plumbing under the sink with the correct fittings for the new requirements 🤷♂️
It’s not connected to anything. The pipe has been cut. There is no evidence of where it was supplied from before either. Except ...
Decommissioning stuff is important. This morning I suddenly heard water gushing in my kitchen. I turned off the water to prevent immediate damage. On inspection, I couldn’t find water anywhere inside - not a sausage. What I did find was a mysterious service valve which when turned off stopped the flow of water and the water meter clicking over ....
"Mr Williamson said there would be "no algorithms whatsoever" used in determining exam grades in the summer." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56187673 - well, there will still be an algorithm, it just won't be the universally same one and it'll be in the head of each of the teachers handing out grades. There is no 100% fair solution, but there's definitely a more popular one.
I generally don't approve of "coding challenge" engineering interview questions, as being able to do them doesn't reveal how good of an "engineer" you really are. However, if the company you're interviewing for is known for their routing algorithms, asking a candidate to implement Djikstra's algorithm isn't all that irrelevant.
And finally: just because you have something in your parts drawer that you'd like to use doesn't mean it's the right design choice >_<
Also: test the microcontroller module before you install it into something. Somehow this Teensy has no 3.3V on it's internal regulator and I have no idea if it was like that before I soldered it in or whether my board is shorting something somewhere. These are all things that I did know once, but it's been a while and I've filled by brains with other things since then :/
