It is true. But the assumption is that those whom you friend might be sensible people. And sometimes it leads to serendipity.
Who knows, the group named 'The Vatican' (which one I dunno, since groups can have the same name) might in fact be a hate group named deliberately to confuse?
If the OpenGL guys released this, and it was adopted by Intel, AMD and nVidia, how is this AMD's answer to anything? Genuinely curious.
... For example, it may be a deliberate (if subtle) way of demonstrating that even an accredited professor is not above simple, mundane mistakes.
That's a typo, "professor".
In Soviet Russia, place walks to Chuck Norris! (as it does everywhere)
It's like a scoreline. I'm not sure which sport though (baskeball, maybe?). Proverbs 21:19 Revelations.
Don't confuse GNOME3 with GNOME Shell..
And that's another problem. Define "crappy". Established, "good" and therefore reputable journals are often very closed and pricey. OTOH, open journals are often new and tend to be flooded with crap, so it's difficult for profs to submit quality stuff to said articles.
Thanks for not harping on the "N4 has 2GB RAM" thing. Waiting for one app to finish download first is agonizing if the app is huge (> 100 MB). And then this forces other smaller apps to wait for the large humongous app to finish installing. Even if each download proceeds slower, wouldn't the smaller apps be installed quicker?
Again, (see my comment above) apps can use both RAM and storage. And there's no reason why they should discard data. When running use as much RAM as you can, when not running, save everything to storage.
I mentioned the 16GB because apps can use the storage to save data to something like a page file, instead of discarding it. Especially browsers. I'm not a moron.
The only party involved in this shitstorm that came out clean are the PyCon organizers. They did the right thing consistently, don't punish them by not attending.
By buying out the government.
I'd agree about the '1812 Overture'. It's difficult to get it to sound anything but crappy in common hardware/software combos.
