Safety and performance. Since I got performance, no need to have concurrency.
They paid for that anyway. So, the stupid ones really are the local stations.
Yes, and it re-rerenders all the pages as bitmaps at 400% zoom, scales them back down to get proper anti-aliased results, then compresses them with JPEG and stores them into main memory...
Parallel processing is not gonna solve stupidity.
If nothing has top priority, I take that as: pick whatever you think is best. If it turns out I picked wrong, too bad, set priorities then.
Actually, it is a productivity killer which looks like a cost-reduction, but if productivity could be measured in an objective way, it would be unmasked as a net cost increase.
Yep, it's exactly my setup... 10m HDMI cables (for both monitors), and games work perfectly without any tearing.
That wouldn't have fooled me even then.
Good. We're at the "it's a mental illness" stage. Can't wait to find out which policitical conviction will be classified as such in the 1984 future.
I'd call cropping the image a trivial tweak. How you dealing with that?
...and I suppose this silent corruption was verified by reading it into main memory?
My own simple tests (copy 1 TB of data from one place to another) on ECC and non-ECC systems showed quite clearly where the culprit was. Bit error rates of 1 bit/100 GB with the non-ECC system showed the problem clearly.
Just use ECC RAM. The price difference is tiny.
Of course you can verify, but very few people do that, and it certainly is not something most filesystems do for performance reasons.
You can ask the same for normal cars, as they're basically driving computers these days.
Public transportation takes about 50-100% longer to get where you want, unless you are part of the "lucky" few that live next to a major station and works next to another major station. It also often costs about as much as it would cost in fuel costs -- yes, you can factor in the car costs, but those are sunk costs as living without a car is not an option anyway (I'm not gonna bring my shopping in the train for starters).
Public transportation is really an abysmal failure, especially on the cost aspect. Its supposed to achieve economy of scale, but in reality it can't even beat a car with two passengers (and often not even with one passenger). And that's ignoring the time aspect (time is money, especially my free time).
If you really want to solve these kinds of problems, I'd look beyond transportation, but more to the reason we transport ourselves: work. Make it so people can work from home or nearby reuseable offices.
I just did the same, but instead it involved a 1 TB USB3 drive, which fits in my pant pocket... and it wasn't just one season.
Java has had quick edit/reload cycles since there was hot code replacement. If you see Java developers recompiling / restarting their entire project every time they make a change, then unfortunately they just don't care enough and/or are incompetent.
For projects that I'm assigned to, the first thing I look at is making sure the turnover time is below 10 seconds.. if it isn't, I fiddle with it until it is. And yes, that works for Facebook sized websites as well.
They invented a square wheel to go with their already mediocre Volkswagen. Meanwhile, languages designed statically to begin with are looking at more important issues that crop up half a dozen iterations further down the road.
