Very interesting to observe the Christian Democrats' perspective on Muslims in Norway. They wish Muslims welcome because they believe in God, and say that secularists pose the most serious threat to Christian values. Meanwhile, the anti-tax anti-immigration Progress Party thinks that Muslims are the most serious threat to Christian values, and thinks that the Christian Democrats have an absurd point of view on the issue.

With a sufficiently high pin count MCU, I could perform dynamic processing on the 12 input channels individually. With a low pin count MCU, my options would be more limited, but still considerably betre than before.

I started thinking my 5.1 mixing box over a bit and I realised that I'm building an awful lot of digital circuitry using discrete components, namely a LED peak meter and a soft latch power circuit, and I'm starting to think that it's probably best to just use an MCU for all of it. There are a couple of features I could add to the system if I use an MCU, like AGC, peak limiting and USB software control, so it's starting to make more sense to do it that way.

Assuming I get the job, it looks like I'll be working on a much newer codebase this time around. They spoke of React, React Native, "modern JavaScript" (ES6+ basically), WebSockets, WebPack and also MySQL, so it looks like this is going to be a pleasure to work with.

I will be very relieved if I get this job, because I'm currently spending money that I don't have (accumulating debt). I worked there for 6 months previously and in retrospect, I thought it was absolutely fine. It got stressful at times because I was trying to reach my hours quota and there wasn't time to assign me work because everyone was hurrying to finish before a deadline, so I sat there with my wheels spinning, but I was allright with the work they did manage to hand me.

They could turn me down, and I'm trying very hard to believe that they will, because it's less disappointing if you don't have high expectations. But...

They haven't advertised any positions. They said they were going to anyway, since they are growing, and said it was very convenient that I turned up at the time I did.

They also said that if I do get the position, I will start pretty much immediately, so it looks like I'd be bypassing the usual hiring process since they already know me.

Corp B has some sweet perks. Flexible work hours (10 AM to 3 PM core hours), and the opportunity to work remotely if desired. Great location, easy to get to by public transport. Spotify subscription included. Discounts when buying stocks (they are affiliated with a stock exchange). Cheap vacation house rentals in Spain. Also, they have a big cafeteria that serves good lunches. Also, their office space has big windows and ergonomic chairs. Oh, and nice people and agreeable web stack too.

I spent 6 months working for Corp A in 2017 as an external consultant employed with Corp B. I quit my job at Corp B later on. Had a job interview with Corp A today and they seemed pleased that I had contacted them about a position; or rather: Coder X, that did the interview, did. I had a few brief work sessions and lunch conversations with Coder X while I worked there. Coder X seemed to enjoy the interview and we talked for over an hour. Coder X will get back to me this week, I'm told.

Linux Mint kind of behaved weirdly on my roommate's real-life machine too. Hit the Shutdown button and it would just sit there for a long-ass time until finally jolting into action. Is Linux Mint 19 known to have lots of bugs?

Anybody else having issues with google-drive-ocamlfuse being dirt slow? As in taking several minutes to load the folder initially?

I suppose that's the best way to describe vibration schemes
it's still fucking hilarious
