[[Drummer]] docs tease

Drummer has a built-in doc server.
Frontier users will find this UI familiar, it’s an improved version of the verb docs server we have in Frontier.
Drummer’s scripting philosophy, like Frontier’s, is that apps not only have user interfaces, they also have scripting interfaces. Which means theoretically, anything you can do with a mouse and keyboard you could also do in a script.
The first app I’ve created a scripting interface for is Twitter, because I use it so much, and so many other people do. I felt it could immediately benefit from being scriptable. I haven’t covered anything like the whole functionality of Twitter, it wouldn’t even be possible because their API doesn’t cover it all, but — a lot is possible with the verb set we have working right now.

Stack Overflow sold to tech investor Prosus for $1.8 billion

Legendary programming Q&A site Stack Overflow is being acquired by Prosus N.V., Europe’s largest tech investment firm. According to a press release on Prosus’ website, the two companies entered into a definitive acquisition agreement yesterday.
According to Amazon Alexa web analytics, Stack Overflow is the 46th most heavily engaged site in the world. Since 2008, the site has served as the first stop for developers searching for answers to their programming-related questions—and eventually, their non-programming-related questions, as the Stack Exchange network of sites expanded into categories including culture, recreation, arts, science, business, and more.
Prosus will likely be much less familiar, particularly to Americans, as the Amsterdam-listed investment firm has a much lower public profile. Although based in Europe, Prosus invests internationally; for example, it has the largest single stake in Chinese

No Man’s Sky gets the world’s first VR-DLSS performance boost—let’s test it

Enlarge / No Man’s Sky added a bunch of trippy stuff this week, including rideable mounts. We love mounts. But we also love frames, so hence, we’re analyzing the game’s newfound use of DLSS, specifically in its punishing VR mode. (credit: Hello Games)
Over the past few years, Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS) standard has largely delivered on its magical promise: smoother gaming performance and crisper imagery, all based off of zillions of machine-farm computations to predict 3D game visuals. (You can see comprehensive DLSS breakdowns in my reviews of the RTX 3060 and RTX 3080 Ti.) The catch remains that your computer needs a compatible Nvidia “RTX” GPU to tap into the proprietary standard, which has become an ever-tougher pill to swallow in a chip-shortage world.
Still, if you run a DLSS-compatible game on an Nvidia RTX GPU, the performance gains can range from a solid 25 percent to an astonishing 90
