Oh please, the body is not some kind of magic entity that can ignore the laws of physics. Your body needs energy to function and the calories you consume are that energy. Your metabolism can slow down to some extent, but it's not as drastic as you say. "Starvation mode" is simply what the people who binge in secret tell you. Adjust your caloric intake to under or just at your base metabolism and you will lose weight, your body won't magically start running on hopes and dreams while it stores calories.
The opposite is true, your body doesn't "burn the extra calories" either, it stores them. That's how you gain weight. The plain fact is, the only way to lose weight is to consume less calories than you burn. No magic hocus pocus, no "starvation mode", no nothing. The more you consume, the more you need to burn. And aside from a few big name athletes, exercise will burn less than your base metabolism anyhow (my base metabolism is at about 1700-1750 calories/day last time I had it measured).
I made no points. I explained to people what was being discussed in the video. Why are you responding to me ? I framed the context. You don't agree with the context I framed ?
Did you watch the video ? At all ? Linus is voicing is concerns, not telling nVidia how they should operate. He's describing the problem basically... What nVidia thinks and does is out of bounds and plainly obvious, you're restating what Linus is stating...
Hence why I don't get your point.
Hence why it's Linus (the project lead) that's talking about it ? He's voicing his concern... I don't get what you're even trying to get at here...
Linus isn't talking about gaming, performance or anything else like that. The point is : nVidia ships a binary blob and an obfuscated source portion that needs to be built outside of the vanilla kernel. That is what Linus is talking about, nVidia's lack of cooperation with the kernel people at integrating their drivers into the main line kernel in a way that respects the project's goals and visions.
Why you people are discussing the performance when that is not at issue, I have no idea. It was all pretty clear to me what Linus meant.
Wow, impressive. I have no certifications whatsoever and am employed as Unix systems administrator, have been in this position for 3 and a half years now, did the NOC thing before that, did the SMB (small/medium business) systems integrator/administrator/operator before that, etc.. etc..
Maybe you just aren't looking in the proper places.
Is there anyone here that works for a large business customer of HP and used there software?
(I'm genuinely interested; even though it may sound like a troll that's just because I appear to be ignorant on the subject.)
I do. We use a couple of their different enterpise packages for performance monitoring, centralized printing, backup and of course, clustering and big-iron Unix to run on Integrity boxes.
Oh, our storage too is based off their XP line-up.
