I'm sure it's keyword matching, not measuring stress in the voice or "emotion" directly.

Probably. A number of machine learning tools offer this, including Alexa IIRC. E.g. IBM Watson's Tone Analyzer:

Effectively: Voice > Text > Tone Analyzer > Action. All in real time. Very impressive.

Web Development / Re: Run Mastodon Instance on Raspberry Pi
« on: September 10, 2018, 09:49:12 AM »
I had a couple of Acer Aspire Revo boxes (the NUCs of their day); one running Windows for media streaming and NAS, and the other Ubuntu for a development server plus Postfix/Dovecot for email. Come replacement time, I found NUCs and dedicated NAS boxes were too expensive for what they offered. I ended up building a PC with low power components, battery-backed RAID arrays and 32GB of memory. It runs Vmware ESXi which boots from a USB stick. Infinitely more flexible than bare-metal, with enough power to cope with anything I need it for. It gets left on 24/7 and draws about 60 watts on idle.

Lots of choice in JS libraries, but this one seems to pop up a lot.

I really like that Greta Van Fleet track. Very similar to Rival Sons though, who sometimes have a bit of Doors in their Zep:

Sleaford Mods - TCR

So British it may not translate very well. A cross between The Streets and The Fall.

Traffic / SVG inside a heading element
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:24:12 AM »
If I use an SVG text element inside an <h1>. E.g.:

I believe the text is spidered by Googlebot. Does it carry the semantic weight of the <h1>?

I've got a VMware ESXi setup with every IE from IE5. Happy to help if I can.

Water Cooler / Re: Falcon Heavy landings -- Amazing
« on: February 08, 2018, 12:25:43 PM »
This had me in tears. It's incredible.

I was born in 1970. The Apollo missions were still going on, and as a child I was excited by stories of Skylab and Voyager. My primary school allowed us to skip lessons to watch the first Shuttle launch. I read Aldiss, Bradbury and Niven and watched Star Trek, Space 1999 and Blake's 7. I was fully expecting to see a lot of this science fiction happen in my lifetime. It's stayed stubbornly terrestrial ever since.

These Falcon landings, the towel in the glove box of an orbiting Tesla with Bowie on the stereo, the branded flamethrowers and a whole lot more means Elon Musk is my hero.

Let's Encrypt certificates only last for 90 days, so you either need software on the server to renew them or be prepared for a lot of admin. Someone who's actually used them may correct me on this...

worked for me, but I couldn't argue why RapidSSL and not, let's say, Comodo.

Hardware & Technology / Re: Firefox Quantum

I'm on Firefox 57. It still leaks memory, but does it on multiple threads instead of just the one. It is very fast though.

The're an add-on called Foxified which apparently allows the running of Chrome and Opera plugins. I haven't tried it yet. I'd be interested in your feedback if you do.

Hardware & Technology / Re: Budget DSL-R recommendations?
« on: May 22, 2017, 10:43:37 PM »
Your requirements sound modest, and virtually any current D-SLR is going to be more than capable. As a Nikon shooter I'd suggest the D3400, but if you see an older D5xxx or D7xxx body discounted it may be a better deal. Nikon bodies in these ranges don't tend to change much year-on-year.

Alternatively, the entry-level Canon is the Rebel T6/1300D, but its HD video tops out at 30 fps.

If I were choosing a system now I'd be taking a good look at Sony's mirrorless range. The A6000 is a similar price, and its features may fit your needs better than a Nikon or Canon.
