Performance would be there if you ran arm-specific code and not x86 code cross compiled to arm. Shit like doing extra math just to avoid some branching because missed branch prediction is brutally punished on x86 by it's ridiculously long instruction pipeline. Shit like doing extra math and memory juggling just so you can access it in linearized fashion in a hot loop because on x86 there's ridiculous memory lag and trying to random access anything, as per namesake, will fuck your performance to hell and back. Shit like making assembly inserts because the 4 fucking registers of x86 don't amount to crap and compilers struggle to use them efficiently even at the best of times. All of those are x86-specific and are either neural or more often detrimental for performance on other platforms. It's the same reason why console games that run fine on host systems run like fucking dogshit on PC.

>We have them, people like RMS. However we now "cancel" our geniuses.

RMS changed his mind about paedophillia 6 months before he was canceled (ie: a year before now). It was discussed at length here when his private conversations (and conversion) on the subject were leaked.

He also called for Epstein to be jailed in the email he was canceled for: he knows what happens to pedos in jail: he was calling for his torture and murder.

He got what he wanted.

Previously RMS could say whatever he wanted, and was protected. But he is a betrayer, a Judas, and he was not protected this time.

6 months after he told a woman he was against paedophillia, he was cancled and thrown out of MIT and the FSF.

Using, in part, the very words he ingratiated himself with "the community", which he had privately (he thought) recanted.

Here are some examples of people from the past who chose not to betray their men:

>>The Torah explicitly allows men to marry female children, including in cases of the rape (tahphas) of the girl child: Devarim chapter 22, verse 28. Key words: Na'ar (child (hebrew masoretic text)), Padia (child: padia+philos = paedophillia (greek septuagint)) Puella (young girl (latin vulgate))
>>Nachmanides points out that a child may be called na'ar from the moment he is born.

Why should globalhomogeny countenance a backstabber like RMS? If global homogeney didn't want child-bride-loving men flooding "the west": they wouldn't let them in. Muslims are the only way to leagalize child brides in the west. Liberation-idealogy was tried in the 60s to 80s, but failed: the white men violently opposed the ideas.

So another way was waiting in the wings.

RMS was on-board and while he was on-board as a thought leader of geeks he was untouched no matter what he did or said.

Once it came to light that he privately had turned against men marrying adorable young girls, in private conversations, only then was he canceled.

Is this a coincidence?

Is it even a bad thing? Why should traitors be tolerated?

Do you think he thought: "Well I'm never getting a child bride, so I'll throw the other men under the bus, propaganda wise".

This was noticed, and then his own words, which initially ingratiated him with the wider "community", were poetically used against him.

Sunni Muslims aren't "accidentally" being mass-imported into the west. Something is wanted from them: and that is what is in their minds.

/hsg/ HomeServer General

Been a while since the last one. Sorry for old copypasta, this is the only copy I had around.

>Why should I have a homeserver?
De-botnet your life. Learn something new. Serving applications to yourself, your family, and your friends feels good because service to others feels good. Put your /g/ skills to good use for yourself and those close to you. Store their data with proper availability redundancy and backups, don’t let googlel/applel/microshaft botnet them.

>How should I get started?
NAS is how most people get into this. It’s nice have a /comfy/ home for all your data. Streaming your movies/shows around the house and to friends is good feels. Repurpose an old desktop, buy a SBC, or go with cheap used enterprise gear. Lots of options and theres even a flowchart. Ask.

/hsg/ is about learning and expanding your horizons. Know all about NAS? Learn virtualization. Spun up some VMs? Learn about networking by standing up a pfsense box and configuring some vlans. Theres always more to learn and chances to grow. Think you’re godtier already? Setup openstack and report back.

>What software should I run?
install gentoo. Or whatever flavor of *nix is best for the job or most comfy for you. Emby to replace netflix, nextcloud to replace googlel, ampache to replace spotify, the list goes on and on. Look at the awesome selfhosted list and ask.

Is that consistent for all red drives, or should I use smaller capacities/a different brand for my next box?

What field should I study?


Sup guys.

I've genuinely got no fucking idea what field to study in university.

I'm a fan of coding and generally creative digital work, though, so I guess I'd like to make a living from it.

Whether it's an IT job or something else, I'd like to get a decent pay as well.

So, what would you guys recommend?

I'm willing to bet thousands of vulnerabilities are discovered for Windows 10 every hour on the hour across the globe, it's wise to implement a feature that basically forces updates. With cyber attacks becoming more and more a thing I can't really see a problem with what it's trying to accomplish.

I do however see a problem with it interrupting unsaved work or currently in progress stuff like 3d printing, compiling, compressing, rendering, etc, that you may not be currently around to say hey, fuck off.

I'm not sure how exactly they can solve that issue aside from somehow detecting if something important is happening. Which I bet would be a PITA to implement. If you're running some sort of server or something and you don't have windows updates properly configured and something happens that's kinda your own damn fault, but then again if you jump from a previous OS unaware about how Win10 updates work then I guess you have some sort of excuse.

It'd be nice if and when they implement the ability to apply patches without requiring a full system restart. So stay tuned for that.

>anti encryption politics
These actions only focus on forbidding disk/file encryption for home users. When the thought police wants to check your comp for supremacist 4chan visits, to look for memes they label racist and anime they claim is child porn.

If your disk is encrypted they can lock you up for a long time (depending on the severity) to force you to stop obstructing the investigation and decrypt it. If encryption isn't illegal it's a lot more difficult to keep you locked up.

In order to track your traffic and see who you communicate with, it's easisest if all traffic is encrypted.

Everything about calculating physics is trivial, what apparently isn't trivial is actually figuring out what domain your problem falls under.

You don't need to worry about the three body problem if you don't need autistic collision detection, and if you don't need autistic collision, then you can dedicate resources to more important game tasks
I don't even know of any games that have perfect collision detection. You can knife into a wall but nobody thinks it's a big deal.

>>73630519
>Everything about calculating physics is trivial
Collision detection isn't trivial, it's one of the biggest uses of CPU in video games and usually the first thing to cause a slowdown if there's too many objects

>I don't even know of any games that have perfect collision detection
Nearly all of them. "Perfect collision detection" doesn't mean what you see is what is colliding - it means the invisible collision detectors are colliding properly

>You don't need to worry about the three body problem if you don't need autistic collision detection
You do need "autistic" collision detection

>but jitter!

I have no idea about that, but it would not surprise me with how fucked modern tech is

I just find it really sad how laggy modern tech is. Did you know that pc-gamepads pre-usb had an input lag of 0, yes 0. The directInput api was polled, but not the shitty kind of asynchronous polling which usb uses, no this was the good kind. The application called a function to read the state of the gamepad and then that state was then fetched right there and then from the gamepad, the game receives the most up to data state of the pad just when it needs it.
>>
>>73630450
Ya USB has isochronous mode for USB microphones which would be better but you need to get a driver signed whereas standard HID polling at 8ms intervals does not.
