I am sick of abbreviations

So I asked chatGPT to write a software synthesizer and it did, read it's following comment


const int SAMPLE_RATE = 44100;
const int OSCILLATOR_COUNT = 2;
const int MAX_VOLUME = 32768;

struct Oscillator {
double frequency;
double phase;
double gain;

double generateSample(Oscillator oscillators[]) {
double sample = 0;
for (int i = 0; i < OSCILLATOR_COUNT; i++) {
Oscillator osc = oscillators;
sample += osc.gain * sin(2 * M_PI * osc.frequency * osc.phase);
osc.phase += 1.0 / SAMPLE_RATE;
if (osc.phase > 1.0) {
osc.phase -= 1.0;
oscillators = osc;
return sample / OSCILLATOR_COUNT;

int main() {
Oscillator oscillators[OSCILLATOR_COUNT];

// Set the initial frequencies and gains of the oscillators
oscillators[0].frequency = 440.0;
oscillators[0].gain = 0.5;
oscillators[1].frequency = 880.0;
oscillators[1].gain = 0.5;

// Generate and output a sine wave for one second
for (int i = 0; i < SAMPLE_RATE; i++) {
double sample = generateSample(oscillators);

This code defines a simple synthesizer that consists of two oscillators that generate sine waves. The generateSample() function calculates the output of the synthesizer by adding the contributions of each oscillator, and the main() function generates and outputs a sine wave for one second.

This is just a basic example, and there are many other features and capabilities that you could add to your synthesizer. For example, you could add filters, envelopes, LFOs, and other audio processing elements to shape and manipulate the sound. You could also create a user interface to allow users to control and manipulate the synthesizer's parameters and settings.

So trump was never audited. WTF

How is that possible.

It's insane.

Clearly grounds for suspicion regarding the IRS

It is not merely a matter of being underfunded.

This cannot continue.

Keeping up with AI? Huge implications for learning, schools, research etc

So when do we get 4 new SCOTUS picks?

Urgh, more Netflix price hikes.

I'm trying to work out the relative cost of dropping Xfinity/Comcast to just provide internet with no cable TV, then just paying a few streaming apps.

Netflix seems to have very little that attracts us. With rising fees every few months they can lose subscribers. Another rise in December is planned.

Amazon Prime is even worse.

Netflix article here:


A friend just told me he had Covid for 15 days and it was bad.

Two sons and his wife had it as well. His daughter did not. Scared him. Felt like an elephant sitting on his chest.

All fully vaccinated and had boosters.

300 kids at his son's school had it too.

Santa Rosa, CA.

That fucker trump is still not dealt with. Over a million dead and he is to blame for 90% at least.

EU steps up pressure on Russia in a huge way. Turning point for putin?

Just had an email claiming that my McAffee subscription had expired and click to renew

Pretty obviously a scam as I've never used that software and never liked it from what I read about the original McAffee guy.

Anyone confirm that it is just another scam?

Did not click on the email of course.
