I wonder if the differences are due to extracting the result from the GPU. There is no doubt whatsoever that doing 2D with OpenGL on the GPU will be faster than a software rasterizer - what kills the performance in these tests is having to copy the result back to the CPU so it can be displayed in an X window. Once X windows are fully composited and output graphics never leave the GPU memory, the hardware acceleration will no doubt prove to be the fastest.
"laser based" is irrelevant, except as a way to get the quantum effects.
And even if those effects are real, I'm guessing that 'quantum' is not able to provide stronger encryption, only to make it easier to *break* encryption.
Tell your boss to spend the money on a new yacht instead.
Think about what you are asking here: you are trying to protect equipment from a bunch of jerks who don't follow the rules on how to properly take care of it, and are offering a solution that requires them to voluntarily log their actions. If they don't follow proper equipment maintenance rules, they aren't going to follow your logging rules either. If any voluntary system works for you, it will be when you have no jerks. If you have damaged equipement, then you have jerks. If you have jerks, you must have some sort of mandatory access control, such as signing out equipment using an id checked by the person in charge of the inventory. Anything less secure than this will be abused by jerks. After all, you don't expect them to sign out equipment they are planning to destroy, are you?
Nobody uses a facebook profile to determine if a prospective employee is a good fit - they are instead looking to determine if the prospective employee is a bad fit. With so many candidates for every position, there is an increasing need to disqualify people, and facebook is an excellent place to find dirt on them. If a capital offence can be found in six lines written by the most honest of men, anyone with an active facebook profile is entirely worthless.
Do you have any fukken idea what probiotics are?
but at some point it will always be impossible to evolve without messing up at least some of the workflow and without making some people get used to different paradigms
Why is "evolving" necessary? Some of us want tools, not eye sores^w candy.
There's no inherent advantage in having a desktop that looks like Windows, a Mac, or a cell phone.
I ditched GNOME for MATE about two weeks ago. A few bugs (e.g., screensaver timer is off), but also fixes things that have been broken in GNOME for years (single left-click on window list to pop something up, vs. right click and pick a menu option).
Restoring my customizations was surprisingly easy - easier than restoring them after the last few GNOME upgrades.
No regrets whatsoever.
Not true, whatsapp doesn't store contacts, as it doesn't do contacts authorization.
When you change your android phone, you put your gmail account and you get your contacts back (this is being done by the OS), whatsapp just queries the server to find out if your contacts have whatsapp and shows accordingly.
A committee by the FSF could for example determine what is 'evil' enough to prohibit its use. Do you think that's a good idea?
Please direct your question to the committee.
I would love to get your local cable monopoly, or 6 Mbps choice.
In Venezuela, we get 1.5 Mbps on average.
You guys aren't that bad, you just can't compete with Europe or Asia (how should you? the US is quite bigger and harder to lay down fiber)
You are mostly right, i live in Venezuela, here we only get charged for data/outgoing sms/outgoing calls. Incoming sms and calls are free, as they should. Of course, our cell plans suck, for example i only get 60 minutes a month, 300 sms and 250 MB of data.
You are wrong about whatsapp not caring for new accounts, it is widely known whatsapp 450M users have about 70% of daily use.
Here a trick for whatsapp users: don't want to pay anually? Have android? Borrow an iphone, put your simcard, buy whatsapp for 1$, put your simcard back into your android phone. Boom, you get lifetime service for 1$.
Whatsapp is good enough, its strenght isn't security or privacy, but rather its comfort. You don't need to add anyone, no pins, usernames, passwords or logging in. If you want security then use BBM.
If you don't want 7.x you can use 6.1.6 which got released to fix this
Nah. Only 2befc6455fdef3fdc8fe4d9770e45d1b like ebff344a30f680b4d1357c87428852a1 flavor.
I think I'll go hunt some af7caaf1e73a2d24924371a370b4ef9b so I can feed my 362842c5bb3847ec3fbdecb7a84a8692 and a nice quiet evening with my 34b46c8cf192431e84ea81109660367b, chatting about the difficulty of talking about a474fb23f886eeaa16223eba872e53b1 that some socially inept scientist decided to name with a hash function.
Once upon a time, there was an open source developer who published an open source project on GitHub and declared that he was going to make a lot of money from it. People were curious; how could he make any money from what he gave away for free? So they asked him what his secret was.
He thought a moment and said: "You too can be making money from your free software project. All you need is to become a consultant."
"Really?" exclaimed the people "We never thought of that! What do you consult about?"
"I consult companies on how to make money from their open source projects"
"Oooh. That's clever. Uh... but what do you use your OSS project for?"
"Sometimes those companies sometimes hire me to write something for them."
"Your OSS project?"
"Well, no. They usually want something different made."
"But it's open source, right?"
"So your advice is basically to put your OSS project on your resume so companies know you can code and then will give you a job?"
"So you are not really making any money from your OSS project, you are just using it to get a job?"
