@asdf The fact that X completely ignores user permissions is even more ridiculous. Linux is supposed to be "the secure OS", right? But any GUI app can read the contents of any other, regardless of which user it's running under. Whaaa?
X has always been a wart when it comes to security. I mean, on most (all?) distributions, it still runs as root.
The DPI scaling doesn't make sense, since AFAIK Wayland expressly does not do that, it offloads that work to the application.
But at least Wayland doesn't prevent them from implementing it correctly. AFAIK, there are fundamental problems with having different scaling factors on different monitors in X.
And, from what I've read on the Nvidia Wayland discussion, they seem to be making sure that the Wayland protocol exposes all relevant information to the application for toolkits to be able to implement this correctly.
Someone remind me in a bit to install gnome so I can compare how it's changed. Last I remember it was a real pain to navigate, but maybe it's because I'm used to window tiling.
Just finished installing Debian with GNOME (the default DE). Wireless didn't work out of the box, because I'm using Debian and I should have the freedom to download non-free drivers manually whenever I want. Whatever, I use Debian daily so I'm used to this shit. I guess I'm a masochist.
I'm getting an annoying hiss that isn't affected by the volume slider.
There is no systemwide equalizer available out of the box. I bought a nice pair of bassy headphones, so I want some skull-rattling shit.
There is pulseaudio-equalizer, but it's old/unsupported and also has really annoying stutter and lag.
There's pulseeffects, which is new and seems to have more filters and features. Neither of these two are available in the repos, so I have to try and install from source. Unfortunately, the distro version of gstreamer is too old to install it.
On my usual debian install, I have an equalizer running in ALSA, and it "works", but the output can be too quiet sometimes because the preamp plugin doesn't seem to work with the equalizer for some reason.
JACK provides a proper EQ but keeping it running means I have to keep some window open all the time. And firefox (inb4 tr is firefox) doesn't play sound if I inject JACK between pulse and alsa.
this is actually FF's fault. they made pulse a hard dependency earlier this year. The only real reason I'm using FF is because it has a tab organizer addon and mouse gestures that aren't hacky and broken like the extensions available in chrome.
Man, audio on Linux as an end user sucks. I really can't see how people say 'X is the year of linux on the desktop!!'.
In particular, if the client downloads to a file (temp or otherwise) and passes it into the library for parsing. I've already moved the FetchData stuff out into the console app, but what's the suggested approach in this instance? Pass in a TextReader? A filename or file handle of some sort?
Have it operate on a Stream. Yield completed rows as they come.
@sh_code That's one of the points Joel makes in the article I linked: intro to CS classes are supposed to be difficult, with the express purpose of weeding out those who don't have the mental flexibility to make it as successful programmers.
What about the people that enter CS to be business analysts, project managers, and whatnot?
Somewhere along the line of waking up too early this morning and dozing off and on until my alarm went off (one of the cats in particular tries to get me out of bed so that I'll feed them; at least I'm pretty sure that most of that was real and not dreams) I dreamed a couple of times that my wife had gotten home in the middle of the night and was in bed beside me (she's visiting out-of-state relatives / helping them unpack from a move). When I finally was getting up I wasn't really sure how much of what I remembered was dreams and how much of it actually happened, but the parts where my wife was in bed were definitely dreams.
Got it. What I meant was, that despite losing market share they are still the most profitable company, so it's a news.
...for the moment.
Apple has historically only ever operated two ways: successfully as Steve Jobs's private cult of personality, or flailing and failing without him at the helm. Now that he's gone for good, and with them doubling down on literally all the same mistakes that caused them to lose the Desktop so thoroughly in the 80s and 90s, I wouldn't expect it to last too much longer.
Everything is 256 bits wide, including the "byte" type. This means that whilst byte is valid syntax, it will take up 32x more space than you expect. Storage space is extremely limited in Solidity programs. You should use "bytes" instead which is an actual byte array. The native 256-bit wide primitive type is called "bytes32" but the actual 8-bit wide byte type is called "int8".
@boomzilla On Opera, opening the image in a new tab and reloading isn't enough. It showed the new version in that tab, but the forum still had the old one, even after refreshing. I had to do a shift+F5 to get the updated one.
Maybe opening the emoji selector and downloading all 3500 of em would have done it.
@cloak15 knows his duty. Better for him to get some somewhat nasty burns than to make the entire rest of the party walk though fire. Gritting his teeth, he surges forward and a little to the left, causing the burning debris to impact him right between the shoulder blades [10 damage: 4 blunt, 6 fire ]. With a pained cry, the cleric tumbles to the ground just at the entrance of the cave. Thankfully, the group has enough of a lead on the fire to drag him in but it's going to be close. Very close.

Round: BONUS ROUND! . Lead of 14/20.

When I were a lad, I had to control source with RCS. Uphill, both ways.
My first source control were Hollerith card boxes. I cried when I tripped on the way to the data center and ended up having to "defrag" my three boxes of cards. I think I sounded like one of those millennials at the time of the election: FUCKING FIX THIS SHIT!! – 00:14 — YungAngel
There are no longer 3 wisdom teeth in my mouth as of Tuesday.
Google, GitHub, Twitter, and Yahoo login no longer requires going to an obscure redirect page.
Mages are now female by default.
Please do not look for new emoji in this update.
Fixed iframely image embeds being terrible.
Fixed iframely constantly reloading the embed when typing in the composer.
You can now search within a topic, and more search results are returned (ten times higher default limit, 50 -> 500).
Widgets are now loaded with the page instead of through a separate ajax request.
The progress bar thingy no longer sticks when going to the home page.
Maximum upload size has been increased from 2MiB to 8MiB per file.
@slackerd You have to be careful. If you try everything they have that looks interesting, you could end up with 20 different soaps and aftershaves and it will take you decades to use it all. It happens a lot on r/wicked_edge. They call it Soap Acquisition Disorder, and if they do manage to finish a tub of soap, they post a picture of it there for upvotes.
@boomzilla yeah, it obviously didn't really melt down... it just got hot enough that it was weakened to the point that it could not withstand the extreme pressure inside the gun barrel when firing. Kinda like the structural steel in the World Trade Centers.
This morning we we're at an indoor playground place because it is like a sauna filled with mosquitoes outside today. Our youngest (almost two) is playing with a toy shopping cart and this ~7 year old kid that is there is being a total shit. He keeps stealing stuff from the shopping cart, pushing our little guy out of the way and just being a shithead. His mother has no control over him. All she can muster is a soft: "Cadence...that's not nice, give it back to him", of which he does not.
So our little guy gets this look on his face and a very angry glare in his eye. This Cadence kid yanks the shopping cart out of little guy's hands and starts to walk away with it when little guy (who has always been ungodly strong for his size) has had enough, grabs Cadence's hair with both hands, yanks him backwards as hard as he can and plants him on the ground hard.
Of course we apologized, even though it was mostly justified, and I kept thinking of:
I don't think we will have to worry about little guy getting bullied.
Submitting bug report: "Option hides even extensions of file types unknown to the user"
"$User : "Wait, what? So all this time I could've loaded the file into $Software? I took over this job four months ago and no one ever told me! I've been entering everything by hand into the application! So how do I import this .xml thing?"
I assumed she didn't have it checked.
I might have been wrong.
It's checked by default, IIRC. It's one of the first ways I remember to set up those options on a new computer.
