note to self, LFSR stuff (feel free to think at me, though) Show more
To explore a LFSR taps fully, do runs with all possible start values, starting at 1. On a given run, abort the run if we ever have a value less than start, and only track the runs that arrive back at the starting value.
I have a feeling that when I wake up, I may need to convince myself that this actually does what I want it to; but even if it does, I still need a tidier way to collate all of the different run lengths...
And so, the month of weirdness begins with a question:
Does anyone here know anything about Non-Maximal Linear Feedback Shift Registers?
I saw a thing in my feed... I forget the exact nature of it, but it was about trying to be less negative on social media this month...
Given how little I toot, that's not really a challenge? I tend to not open up about much. So... I think I'm going to try a month of being more weird.

Sorry, sites, but you have made some terrible friends in as companies and I frankly don't trust your friends.

Fucked up to all fuck that society went from teaching kids that they should NEVER EVER tell anyone on the internet their name, birthday, or anything personal whatsoever to suggesting that everyone should use their "real" name and photo for everything.
Like, we have decades of clear examples of WHY exposing yourself to the entire frothing mass of humanity is ill-advised, yet we've somehow begun expecting and even demanding it.

Trust me, they'll appreciate it.

Possibly "related to Carbon Black, which is often found on corp Mac networks" but not necessarily.
Do not patch at this time.
