Hmm so I get a Vulkan validation error; 'Type mismatch on descriptor slot 0.1' and think I'll check the source for what the 0.1 is (probably slot/binding???) - but the error message uses:
"Type mismatch on descriptor slot %u.%u (expected `%s`) but descriptor of type %s", use.first.first, use.first.second,
possibly the worst field naming I can think of.
Anyone worked withh #opentrv designs? I'm curious how they brake the motor/plunger - it's quite a lot of effort to push the plungers down and keep them there; so I'd assumed that they would have to have a braking mechanism; but the two teardowns I've seen (there aren't many) seem to show simple 2-wire motors. I wonder if they're just shorting the motors.
Another report on the UK power outage a couple of months back; this time from the 'Energy Emergencies executive' (Who knew we had one?) - it doesn't add much to the previous, more technical reports from the grid; one mention that some of the low-frequency cut offs didn't trigger, that the cut in embedded generation meant it didnt' help as much as expected, oh & also that Scotland has a different frequency setting for low frequency trips (why?) some of which were wrong.

Anyone else seeing regular #firefox tab crashes when playing youtube? They're not getting reported in about:crashes, they happen on both fedora's and upstream mozilla's builds; with and without my own ffmpeg build, with and without hwaccel; gdb shows the thread getting a sigkill but not sure where from; not seeing audit entries or dmesg OOMs.
Fun with #linux seccomp; a program that wouldn't work when statically linked - it called time() - which when dynamic linked ended up going through the vDSO, but statically linked always did the syscall.
