I've come to the conclusion that there's only about 500 Linux desktop users in the WORLD who have PulseAudio problems. They're all the same people posting on forums about it.
Every other Linux desktop user uses the distro default which is usually PulseAudio, and it works.
This is how I understand it.
Once Firefox e10s (Electrolysis) with sandboxing is enabled by default, every Firefox content process will be independent and restricted.
Most ALSA devices cannot handle multiple open. And the ALSA solution, dmix, requires shared memory which is a thing sandboxes do not really want to have, and dmix does not understand sandboxes, so it would probably have to be forked and modified.
So Firefox can write their own sound server to get sound data from each independent content tab, or blow huge holes in the sandboxes for ALSA dmix, or they can just use the sound server that already exists and is used by 98% of Linux desktop users: PulseAudio.
It's more about the legal right to STOP OTHER WORKERS.
OF course Uber drivers could unionize, collectively stop working for Uber until their demands are met. The problem Unions have, and why I think most of them are out of date and stupid, is that there are plenty of other people willing to work for the company under the current conditions. The Union hates that. What THEY want is to be the only workers legally allowed to do the job.
My opinion is that if the Uber work conditions are bad enough that unionizing makes sense then there wouldn't BE any "scab" workers because they'd all see it makes sense to unionize.
But the way it actually is, this is a few drivers that think they can do better, but don't want the competition.
Look at what driver groups are trying to do in Austin after Uber left. It's possible to do, but the problems they're having show that it is a lot more difficult and expensive than most people think.
All of that software you listed runs great on a Surface Pro 4, aka "a tablet", aka "fondleslab."
Probably not what you're thinking of though since the price on that plus keyboard is $1,200+
I don't think it should be public. That just provides a handle for people to harass the domain owner.
Next I suppose people will want IP packets to have unique machine identities attached, or for print shops to get ID before doing print runs.
Even mSATA is faster than any SATA cable, internal or external. NVMe (which includes M.2 which is just a 4-lane PCIe connector) is much, much faster.
Maximum speed for SATA is 600 MB/s. Maximum speed for an M.2 drive is about 3000 MB/s. I have a workstation with a 1.2 TB Intel 750 that does 2150 MB/s sequential.
SATA isn't fast anymore. It's slower than iSCSI over 10 Gbps Ethernet!
I wasn't aware that anyone read "literature" these days. I don't. Science fiction, fantasy, mystery and some romance, sure. But boring, depressing stories about the "human condition" that try extra hard to use metaphor? Nope. No one reads that junk.
So who cares about these irrelevant literary awards?
They look amazing even upscaled. They make great PC monitors. They're affordable. I recently saw several that were on sale cheaper than 1080 models.
That "crappy GPU" is more cores. Specialized cores, but even the Intel GPU is ridiculously fast for the right kind of code. Now that we're getting Vulkan and DX 12 software should be able to run GPU compute on the Intel or AMD integrated GPU while doing video on the discrete card.
I predict a future with a lot more OpenCL code in it. I also predict a future with more idiot gamers who complain that using all of the CPU cores plus the integrated GPU ruins their 4.6 GHz overclocks.
Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 both use a fast boot mode that is essentially hibernation. But if it detects a disk change since last boot it has to abort and start over from scratch. That's where the long delay comes from.
There's some way to turn that off.
I don't recall how OS X reports memory use but double check the difference between virtual and real. For example, right now my Firefox is using 3.5 GB virtual but only 1.1 GB real. And I've got piles of stuff open at the moment.
Probably because they were inventing Rust at the same time they were using it to write Servo.
Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Proof
May 3, 2016
Yesterday, Andreas Antonopoulos posted a fantastic piece on Reddit.
Andreas said something critically important and it bears repeating: “I think the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto does not matter”.
He’s absolutely right.
It doesn’t – and shouldn’t – matter to the Bitcoin community.
I cannot deny that my interest in bringing the origins of Bitcoin into the light is ultimately and undeniably a selfish one – the only person to whom this should matter is me. In the wake of the articles last December in which I was ‘outed’, I still believed that I could remain silent. I still believed that I could retreat into anonymity, sever contact, go quiet, and that the storm would eventually pass and life would return to normal. I was right and wrong. The story did eventually retreat, but not before it ‘turned’ and the allegations of fraud and hoax (not to mention personal threats and slurs against me and my family) clung to me.
I now know that I can never go back.
So, I must go through to go forward.
Mr. Antonopoulos’ post also notes that if Satoshi wants to prove identity, “they don’t need an “authority” to do so. They can do it in a public, open manner.” This is absolutely true, but not necessarily complete. I can prove access to the early keys and I can and will do so by moving bitcoin, but this should be a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for such an extraordinary claim.
And this is why I wanted to speak with Gavin weeks ago. Gavin was in a unique position as we dealt with each other directly while we nurtured Bitcoin to life in 2010. I knew that Gavin would remember the content of those messages and discussions, and would recall our arguments and early interactions. I wanted to speak with Gavin first, not to appeal to his authority, but because I wanted him to know. I owed him that. It was important to me that we could re-establish our relationship. Simply signing messages or moving bitcoin would never be enough for Gavin.
And it should not be enough for anyone else.
So, over the coming days, I will be posting a series of pieces that will lay the foundations for this extraordinary claim, which will include posting independently-verifiable documents and evidence addressing some of the false allegations that have been levelled, and transferring bitcoin from an early block.
For some there is no burden of proof high enough, no evidence that cannot be dismissed as fabrication or manipulation. This is the nature of belief and swimming against this current would be futile.
You should be sceptical. You should question. I would.
I will present what I believe to be “extraordinary proof” and ask only that it be independently validated.
Ultimately, I can do no more than that.
