@masonwheeler Operations that need to list large number of files, like make or version control status, are rather slow even if you've just done another similar operation shortly before so everything should be hot in the cache.

I just found a sales slip on the ground (in a park) with all that info (and more). I mailed it back to them. (oh damn, forgot to copy it first!)
So? Back in the day, I used to download binary files over a Telnet connection all the time.
That's no surprise given that FTP is based on Telnet.
... and then there are clients and servers that crash and burn if a telnet IAC arrives in the middle of something. And then there are other clients and servers that send some IACs every 1000 characters no matter what because the telnet standard says to do so...
Would it be possible to try and work around the "mandatory update" part in the old software?
By, say, disconnecting from network before launching the thing, and possibly checking with ProcessMonitor or ProcessExplorer (I never remember which is which) to check wherever it stores a "cache" of there being a mandatory update available?
A little error here and there is fine for images, that's how Steganography works after all.
But the opportunity was lost when people started doing scientific computing and bitcoins -
You can't do bitcoins with error
You can sort of do numerical analysis with errors, but if your rival has precise hardware, nobody will buy yours
Also, there's some hearsay that certain transcendental functions can just a few times return just a bit different results, for the same arguments, on the same binary code, on different (AMD or Intel) CPUs. Transcendentals are not guaranteed to be absolutely precise anyway... but it's not like anyone keeps that in mind.
Well it was more about rendering stuff, in that the "less optimized" maths were so much faster that the inaccuracies were less important to that specific workload than performing all the calculations on time. I don't know I didn't write it, so I'm probably explaining it wrong.
... along with better phishing scams better Spanish Prisoner cons, better man-in-the-middle attacks... and they still are more secure, more reliable and more convenient than printed statements. It's a crazy world.
after updating, Google Drive decided that it couldn't locate the Google Drive folder.
The Google Drive desktop client is, in my experience, a completely untrustworthy pile of half baked shite with only the slipperiest of grasps on the whole "synchronization" thing. Which, given that it has ONE! JOB! to do and sucks at it, is disappointing.
The last time it crapped out on me was several years ago. Since that it just works.
@anonymous234 This is the exact use case I used it for in my last web app.
It was a system to create map editing requests and one of the optional inputs opened up a (simplified) full page map so you could draw a rectangle on the map that contained the area of the map your requested change was in.
I say optional, but the outline box was mandatory... but the system had a bunch of presets for county, city, and township level boxes.
