Reality TV space mission? It's not rocket science!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
It's not telling students to use recursion to output that number sequence, it's asking students to read and understand a bit of code that does it. Being able to read and understand other people's badly written code is absolutely essential in todays software industry...
Logically it's a bit of a grey area though, because while cameras have tightly integrated hardware and firmware laptops almost entirely have general purpose, easily replaceable OSs and peripherals like card readers are internally attached via general buses like USB so are more like standalone card readers.
If putting an SDXC logo on a laptop depended on having a specific OS installed, not just SDXC hardware, then selling that laptop without an OS installed or with a different OS would need a different production line for a different case without the SDXC logo.
But in order to carry the SDXC logo, the device must be capable of reading and writing the patented file system.
That makes sense for self-contained devices like cameras, but for card readers (especially add-on readers) there must be an exception because the reader itself can't read ExFAT (or any other filesystem for that matter), it's the host OS that does.
What is this blogspam shit doing here? There's no "need" to use either of them, there have been loads of alternatives to PHP for years and there are still plenty of alternatives for both. The individual points make no sense either, it's like they've just quickly Googled for "PHP advantages" and "Node.JS advantages", bullet-pointed them on a page and stuffed the rest full of ad links.
Yes, how care less he was...
TNG a bunch of technobabble and reengineering the ship to solve the problem of the week
Don't forget all that poncing around space so they can talk down to aliens with their self-righteous moralizing!
Matt and Trey are going to have a field day over all this.
Here's the thing, there's no less money because of AI, if AIs are willing to work for "free" then instead of putting people out of jobs everyone could still be paid the same amount as before for, and just work less hours.
The reason wages are stagnant is because instead of sharing the profits of technology with everyone all that money has gone straight to the top instead.
Alpha channel is big advantage (worth it in its own IMHO), but even a small size decrease adds up to a lot of bandwidth for high traffic sites, especially any with a lot of image content.
But it does negate the suggestion that we shouldn't replace JPEGs with something smaller just because JPEGs are already "small"...
...because jpegs are so huge to begin with
The BBC news site gets 40 million unique users per week and their homepage contains around 400k worth of JPEGs.
If BPG reduces the size of those images by 100k and If each of those users loads the homepage just once, that would save them 570 gigs of bandwidth per week.
Not to mention the saving for users with bandwidth caps on their connection...
.png has an alpha channel, has broad support, and uses *lossless* compression. What's not to like?
Lossless compression works terribly on photographic images, which limits the kind of images you can practically use with an alpha channel in web browsers today.
