We usually take on new hires on fixed term contracts (of variable length, usually 6 months to 3 years) and keep on giving them new contracts if they're good enough; poor programmers are usually kept to the end of their contract period and then wished well in their future endeavours provided they go somewhere else, somewhere far away or a direct competitor for preference. Eventually the good end up with enough time to make the transition to permanent, but that's complicated for ugly financial reasons that aren't pertinent to this thread.
So I have two Rtic tumblers (like Yeti tumblers, but half the price). In the morning I fill one with coffee, in the evening I drink booze out of the other. Today when I was cooking I had the coffee one on the kitchen island and then switched to water, so it was just sitting there.
Tonight I made myself a drink and my wife asked me to make sangria for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I am slicing up fruit and grab an Rtic tumbler expecting Jack and Coke and got cold coffee instead.
Annotating PDFs in iBooks works well, once you get used to living with the bug that the button that brings up the annotations functions disappears if you switch to a different app while you have a PDF open in iBooks. The only solution appears to be closing the PDF, quitting iBooks, re-opening it, and then re-opening the PDF. That it doesn’t remember which pen, colour, font, text size, etc. you had selected if you close the PDF is a minor annoyance relative to the whole button disappearing.
Though I haven’t tested exhaustively, it looks like this got fixed in 11.1.2, at least.
@anotherusername True. Which is why I'd expect restaurants to switch to third party delivery companies (as many already have) rather than having their own delivery people, and then I'd expect the smaller delivery companies to slowly be absorbed by the bigger ones until we only have like 2 or 3 left. Like it has happened with many other industries.
In general, economies are more efficient when each job are handled by dedicated companies, and much more efficient when those aren't tied together so competition can happen on each sector individually.
I am assuming that the reason that 'news onion' is called that, but in case it isn't clear, it is a reference to The Onion, specifically the number of people who took one of their over the top articles to be a real news story.
In fact, lemme go put this logo in the original post just to make it clear to anyone coming to the party late.
@anotherusername It's why I included the bit about the H- and P-statements. Because those do include long-term effect considerations.
Doesn't seem to have done the trick in his case.
Though I have to admit that I recently read that lung diseases from tobacco isn't the biggest killer, it's cardiovascular diseases where nicotine seems to play a rather large role. If that's true then vaping is only relatively more harmless.
Now when you deploy a new wallet, what you actually deploy is a stub that forwards function calls to the master contract, using a "delegatecall" which lets the master execute its functions in the context of the stub contract.
I swear, whenever I read about Ethereum, it looks like something that would be a cool idea for a game but I think I'd rather just burn some cash than buy actual Ethereum because at least that would be kind of interesting to watch my money go away.
The complexity of the instruction set has almost no bearing at all on the cost and time needed to implement the ISA; the real costs are in making it run efficiently. Even a highly CISC ISA such as the VAX can be implemented in a standard FPGA costing $25USD in about a week of work, but such an implementation will have terrible performance.
The hard work in developing a new generation of CPU is mostly in development and debugging of the die process - improving the transistor density is not a small task, and not an automatic one despite the impression Moore's Law might give people. The x86 ISA? 90% of that was worked out in 1978; despite the heroic (and fundamentally futile, something even the companies involved are aware of) efforts Intel and AMD have made to extend its life, the basic ISA hasn't really changed all that much compared to things like the memory addressing, register file size, register width, caching, instruction pipelining, branch prediction (especially branch prediction!) and MMU - none of which are part of the ISA, even if they led to some of the changes in it. The ARM and MIPS designs have undergone even fewer changes; in effect, the ISA itself is a done deal.
As an aside, if memory serves, about half the die of the Kaby Lake design is taken up by cache, and about 10% each by the pipeline, instruction re-ordering, instruction simplification (the modern equivalent of microcode), and branch prediction logic. Actually implementing the ISA? Probably less than 5% of the die, even on CPUs with 6 or more cores.
the reason 'RISC' is more performant (in principle, though many of the advantages disappear or are less distinct once things like caching, register renaming, multi-path branch prediction, and so on are used) isn't because the ISA is small - several so-called 'Reduced Instruction Set' designs actually have pretty big ISAs - but because all of the instructions can be implemented without microcode; the use of load/store discipline reduces the frequency of memory accesses for data; regularizing the instruction set makes it easier for compilers to target it and optimize the generated code; and eliminating rarely-used instructions means that the whole can be fit onto smaller dies, leading to less propagation delay. The term RISC is really a very misleading and unfortunate one, and the idea that 'URISC' would be somehow inherently even better is a gross misunderstanding of the reasoning behind load/store discipline and elimination of low-usage-frequency instructions. OISC, by its very nature, is not actually a RISC design at all, because it isn't load/store - the single instruction is actually more CISCy than any of the 56 instructions in the MIPS 2000 ISA.
In practice, an efficient OISC implementation would need any incredibly hairy multi-branch-predicting code/data pipeline that would make Kaby Lake's instruction decoding look like the RCA 1802's. The die layout would be much larger and more complex than that of even the current Intel designs.
That thread is comedy gold BTW, as Geri seems to be somewhere between @SpectateSwamp and Alec Chiu - he wants to a be a Successful Businessman, but he has not idea what he's doing and is fixated on something that will never, ever be what he's is trying to convince people it already is.
whether there is a switch for adaptivity and what the default setting for it is if there is one.
Not found such a thing. For the screenshots I will need more detailed instructions because I can't go looking for something if the statement to prove is that it doesn't exist. BTW my Office 2007 is in Hungarian
The IRS doesn't make tax laws, and they don't spend more tax money than they put back into the budget. They're pretty much the least-hateable government agency. They're pretty boring, though.
This reminds me of a fellow LARPer who tried to convince me that Wraith should be considered the most upbeat and positive of the World of Darkness games because, hey, you're already dead, and nothing worse than that can happen now, right?
Admittedly, I don't really expect well-reasoned arguments from LARPers (including myself), nor do I expect them from @ben_lubar.
i should nip down to the local Homeless Despot and grab some fittings from the plumbing aisle.... i could make something like that for.... probably about 50$ all in, and that's if i go for the good wood to mount it on, and overbuy so i end up making two, maybe three of the things......
but even for 50$ to make three (and keep one because the first two will be rubbish as i learn) would be worth it for the fun of making that thing.
On this note, why do people say that children's teeth must be coming in when they act up? Supposedly, it's because their gums are sore where the teeth break through, but in my not-insignificant experience with kids, I've never seen a kid act like his or her teeth/jaw/gums were actually sore when their teeth grew in. Is it just that they start to act up a lot more during the same time? Or have the kids from my experience just been exceptional, so most kids actually do get sore gums?
I think we've established that you are part of a transdimensional alien race. It seemed like our kids would start acting up for apparently no reason. After a day or so, we'd figure it out and give them some Anbesol or whatever to numb the gums and they went back to being "normal."
This particular compiler has a max_errors option, which for some reason is set to 1. So it sees one error and immediately quits. It doesn't even read the next line. I don't think that's the default; one of the many warnings the compiler spews is that max_errors is specified multiple places, and it's using the one passed on the command line by the script that wraps the whole build process. Which, AFAIK, can't be overridden from the script's own command line.
Press and hold on the notification. Depending on your android version you'll get either a set of options for the app that generated it, or an info button you can tap to send you to the same options.
... unless it's the "you are charging your phone with a USB cable" one in which case: NOPE! There forever! Fuck you user!
The same happens for the damned voicemail notification. It (Android 7.0 on a Moto G4 plus) doesn't give you an option to block all notifications of the program generating it that is "Smartphone Services" (my translation). The best it offers you is to show notifications silently.
