It seems PHP is here to stay, despite all the alternatives (Python, Ruby, Go, etc).

Why the staying power? What's it got that no one else has?

... Whatcha think /g/, is PHP based or bunk?

Has anybody done a comparison of Intel and AMD's offerings with good RAM and tuned subtimings? It seems like that's the way to get performance out of zen 2 but people don't seem to do it (but still overclock the Intel CPUs in benchmark comparisond) despite it being a pretty easy process.
>>
>>72409018
I think Hardware Unboxed did that test with Zen2 as well as a short instructional video on how to OC your RAM using the dram calculator. Can't remember if they specifically compared it to anything from Intel though.
>>
>>72409069

They didn't which is why I'm curious, it seems like a true apples to apples comparison would be something like

>stock Intel
>overclcoked intel

>stock amd
>tuned amd

Instead reviewers faff about adding aftermarket coolers to the amd kit which seems pretty low priority

I think [making computer languages easier for average people] would be misguided. The idea of programming as a semiskilled task, practiced by people with a few months' training, is dangerous. We wouldn't tolerate plumbers or accountants that poorly educated. We don't have as an aim that architecture (of buildings) and engineering (of bridges and trains) should become more accessible to people with progressively less training. Indeed, one serious problem is that currently, too many software developers are undereducated and undertrained.

Not really the point. There's no technical reason not to allow it other than simply not making an additional bios boot entry. I have tons of sdcards between 8-32gb that I regularly use as boot drives. Even ran a freenas server on two of them for a long time.

Google changed their image search a couple of weeks ago and made it kind of unusable. I got fed up with it and made an extension that tries to put it back to how it was. Hope this is of interest to some of you.

Let's post internet-related images/stories/websites from the 90s or early 2000s; feeling nostalgic today

I'll start: when I first started using the internet, I didn't know about Google (or maybe it didn't even exist yet), and I used to use Altavista as my default search engine. I also remember playing a lot of dress-up games and play on Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon's websites

What did a normal surfing session look like to you in the early days of the internet?

The biggest redpill is that there's nothing mysterious about how the brain works.
A neuron is a specific kind of an AND and OR logic gate which can take up many inputs, and which also handles a larger set of data than just two bits.
Those who are too absorbed with theory often neglect pragmatic facts. The brain is akin to a logical circuit, a computer of some sort. This is also why cognitive psychology and schema theory work so well.

This is retarded psued shit. Biological chemistry is not anywhere near as deterministic as electrical circuitry. If neurons were as simple as that, we'd be able to perfectly predict how a chemical structure would act towards the nervous system on its structure alone. Most money in drug research is blown on taking unknown configurations and brute forcing them through stages to understand what they hit, what their affinities are, etc. Do you have any fucking idea how much time and money that wastes? This concept of intuitive pharma modelling is the subject of highly proliferated in-jokes with chemists.

The brain is not a fucking computer. It is not a closed circuit, it does not feature logical gates. It's a precariously balanced clusterfuck of echoing chemical reactions, streams of activity colliding and splitting, and it all acts back on itself. Chemistry does not work on boolean logic, nor does it work on math. We can create approximate models for atomic interaction that's "good enough" and of you squint real hard you might be able to fool yourself into seeing some kind of boolean logic to it. But that's only an illusion, not practically useful for anything. You're creating a distorted view of reality, trying to crunch things into your narrow blinder of human manufactured "logic". There is no "if this and this then this" to particles. Get back to studying you fucking pregrad retard.

True, most major phone brand don't sell small smartphone and more target for the bigger sized. Nokia is one I can think off from my head which release the Nokia 1 with a removable battery but majority of them are Chinkphone which is fine if you're willing to take a chance if they will be any update on Android down the road which most won't.

You can bake your own tube class A amp for $40 per channel using all new equipment including the soldering iron you have to buy if you don't own one already.

If you are already an electronics hobbyist you can probably get away with just buying the tubes and scrounging the rest, total cost $5 if you have a tube tester and can check out used tubes which are typically $1 or less a pop at thrift stores and antique shops.

I took my tube tester to one of those local antique malls - I live in a resort area - and came away with $100 in good tubes for $20 one time. Another time I found a Farnsworth tube which is worth quite a lot of money even if it doesn't work, mine still had a high vacuum and fired up. I never did much with it but I still have it.

There is no reason to use a class D amp except in servo controllers and shit.

I have a copy of the sacd BIA. I agree it sounds nice. And you are correct that it's probably down to mastering differences. It's no different than media releases for a movie having different results in quality, hue/color, etc even though they use the same film source. Just compare the theatrical LOTR release on blu-ray vs the extended cuts. Same source, but Jackson put a green filter over the extended editions for some bizarre reason. Mann's Thief also got a blue hue treatment for his remaster. It's hilarious how off it looks.
