Update to the recent hullabaloo/kerfuffle.
Internet: Your SSD likely won't lose data when unplugged. So says the man at the heart of the confusion over SSD life.

This is wonderful; neural network setup producing wonderful results; one example is training it on wikipedia and it ends up producing valid XML pseudo articles.  Another is training it on Linux kernel source, and it ends up producing C code that looks appealingly complex until you try and figure it out (even with bogus comments).

We have already discussed transistor-level simulation for the 6502 [1] in [2,3,4]. transistor level simulation has now been taken a step further by not only including the CPU, but other chips as well. Read more on a transistor level simulation of the Atari 2600 [5]
...
The web-based, javascript simulation of visual6502 was there for some time, but the first, internal only runtime was the python one. Additional simulations for the Atari's TIA, RIOT I/O chip, and the program ROM have been added to create a complete computer.
In fact, as can be seen from the SIGGRAPH slides on the 2010 presentation of the visual6502 team, Atari 2600 simulation was their initial goal [6]!

The python runtime can render images in a window, so you can in fact look at how each video line is drawn separately by the simulation, while seeing the 6502 writes in the console window.

The news is that you can now simply download it and play with it yourself [5]! Let it run long enough, and it draws a classic 2600 game screen!

I wonder what will be next? Can we finally find out about the infamous VIA 6522 shift register bug that made it so slow? Or will we have a full simulated C64 or Apple II? What would be your favourite?

 Hat tip to +Andrew Reid  for noticing us!

Rajini Rao originally shared to Making Sense of Science:
 
Affairs of the Heart: Dr. Helen Taussig 

❤  On a late November day in 1944, bright sunlight streamed upon the blue-tinged body of 18 month old Eileen Saxon, who was hovering near death. Born with a congenital heart defect that prevented her blood from being oxygenated by her lungs, she now weighed little more than 9 pounds. Across the ocean, World War II raged on, but at the +Johns Hopkins University hospital in Baltimore, another type of history was being made. Under the gaze of 706 doctors gathered around, Dr. Alfred Blalock meticulously rerouted an artery heading to the child's arm, back to the lungs giving the oxygen-starved blood a second chance of rejuvenation. The anesthesiologist cried out in astonishment as Eileen's lips turned from blue to a healthy red. That was the start of a successful procedure that would cure thousands of "blue babies" in the brand new era of heart surgery that followed. Today, we remember Dr. Helen Taussig, whose brilliant idea it was that set the stage.

❤ Born on this day, May 24, in 1898, Helen took medical classes at both Harvard and Boston Universities although neither would award her a degree because of her gender. Worse, she was forbidden to speak to her male colleagues in histology class because of fears that she would "contaminate" them. She completed her MD degree at Johns Hopkins and there, as a pediatric cardiologist did extensive work with anoxemia, or blue baby syndrome. She noticed that blue babies with an additional heart defect (called PDA) fared better, and that a shunt that mimicked PDA could be the solution. She pitched the idea of getting more blood to the lungs much "as a plumber changes pipes around" to surgeon Alfred Blalock and his technician Vivien Thomas. Thomas, a black man whose education did not go beyond high school, practiced the surgery in the animal lab and after modifying instruments for use in humans, coached Dr. Blalock through the first hundred surgeries in infants. In 1976, Hopkins awarded him an honorary doctorate. Sadly, little Eileen became cyanotic again in a few months and did not survive past 2 years even though other babies would go on to live healthy lives. Today, a modified version of the shunt is performed using a synthetic Gore-Tex graft (lower right image). 

¸¸.•*¨*•♫ Happy Birthday, Dr. Taussig!  

Image Note: Helen Taussig became deaf in later years, and actually used her fingers rather than a stethoscope to feel the rhythm of heartbeats.

On a trip from Europe, we got some running gear here today. They were very helpful and pro-active with some great tips on using the gear, and better alternatives for what we were originally looking for. Since the NYC Half Marathon is our first half marathon ever, we got some great tips about that as well, especially since the first and toughest 10+k is inside Central Park so you need to make sure to strike a balance there. We're gonna meet some of the team at the NYC Half Marathon on St Patrick's day, and got invited to a "wind down" run in the week after the run. Highly recommended shop with enthusiast and knowledgeable people. Will certainly pay them a visit again in the future.
