It's just another situation with diminishing returns. Going from the spinning rust to an SSD achieves considerable and noticable gains whereas going to the next step does not. The transition to SSD probably already got rid of most of the perceptable bottleneck.
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).
Are you saying that if they were overwhelmingly female that they would appreciate MATLAB more?
I don't know. In my only actual programming job in the early 90s I worked with some great MUMPS developers who happened to be female and they were at a far higher percentage of the developers I worked with than listed in the survey. I'm just pointing out that the demographics of the SO survey may not really represent what the programming community is, so what they say as what they like may not be reality.
Also, consider that it is Stack Overflow. It's mostly code-snipet "programmers" and people looking for help with homework.
That's true. It's been a real help in (re)learning Python.
I can back this up, as I have a couple of "gamer" customers (which you can replace "gamer" with "must spend stupid amounts of money trying to stay atop the leaderboards") and when they brought in these new "top o' the line" SSDs I ran a few informal tests, boot times, game load times, basic shit....honestly you couldn't tell without a stopwatch, the new ones were so close to the 2 year old SSD I have in the shop it wasn't even funny.
I have to wonder if we are getting to the point the drive speed just isn't a factor, that the other components like CPU, GPU, and RAM will be bottlenecking before the drive, because no matter how faster you get the data off the drive you still gotta process it.
sata has overhead of the, well, sata and scsi layers.
the pci-e ssd stuff is going to be based on NVMe and that cuts thru all the old layers and goes more direct. its also network-able (some vendors).
this is really NOT for consumers, though. consumers are just fine with ssd on sata ports.
you can rent apartments for 2500/mo and houses for about 3k/mo in the bay area (I live here and I do rent).
2000 is very bottom of rent price for anything livable. house rents start at 2500 (usually townhouses with shared walls).
yes, its insane. don't come here. and if you live here, move.
Take a look at the demographics of the people that responded. Overwhelmingly male, average age is 29, half have been coding for less than 5 years, and almost half don't have at least a BS degree in CS.
Oh, I found it *eyeroll*
The link for "most loved" at SO takes me to "compensation by technology" which merely shows pay. And doesn't even list Swift.
I support this idea, for the simple reason that it will help keep Californians from trying to suck the Great Lakes dry instead.
the US is a different matter entirely that would need a court's approval, and that court would be the one in Sweden, not the UK
Are you sure about that? Doesn't the extradition treaty between Sweden and the UK explicitly prevent extraditing people who have already been extradited? Sweden would have to deport him before he could be subject to further extradition requests.
The UK handled everything per the law. They received an extradition request from a country they have a treaty with regarding this. They are required by the treaty to deal with these, they can't ignore them. So they reviewed it in court, to make sure it was a valid request per the treaty and decided it was. He appealed and the case moved up the chain until the high court heard it and decided that this extradition request is legitimate under the treaty, the UK has no standing to refuse.
Up until this point, Assanage was in no trouble in the UK, he hadn't broken UK law, they were just acting based on the extradition request. However then he fled. That is now a violation of UK law. He violated the conditions of his bail. That makes him a criminal in the UK. Skipping bail doesn't make you a "political prisoner" it makes you a standard criminal.
