I've been a computer programmer since I first started typing in program
listings on a Commodore Vic 20 when I was about 8. My hobbies include
electronics, CNC manufacturing, photography, beer and winemaking.
I live with my wife, cat, and lots of left-over parts from unfinished
projects in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA.
"The Boring Company's site says this project will preempt construction of their proof-of-concept tunnel under Los Angeles' Sepulveda Boulevard" aha it really is moving on to the next grift, with the previously promised fantasy tunnel no longer in the cards.
"For now, it’s anyone’s guess whether Thapa and Pandey actually managed to achieve superconductivity at room temperature—a discovery that would change the world as we know it." If Vice is offering a bet, I'll take the "no" position for a couple hundred bucks please.
I think it's an obvious thing to do. A heartening number of Steam games run just fine in PlayOnLinux; if they can make it even smoother by slurping that functionality into Steam client they'll have an even better product.
It will save the school district an estimated $55/student/year all told. If you need daycare for your student on the closed day (monday), you can pay $30/student/week for the service, which of course you'll have to transport them to. So, just on the numbers, this is increasing costs overall, and putting most of that increase on parents. Great job not voting to support your local schools, guys! Enjoy the $12 per year that each person in the school district "saved" by doing this! g-d idiots. edited to add: Fixed some mistakes in the calculations above. They're also adding a total of only 2h40 onto the tuesday-friday schedule, which for grade 1-6 students must be something like a 3-4 hour weekly decrease in classroom time overall with the change. Short sighted fools.
"If the present bit in a given PTE is not set, the PFN number field of that PTE has no defined meaning and the CPU has no business trying to use it. So, naturally, Intel CPUs do exactly that during speculative execution (it would appear that Intel is the only vendor to make this particular mistake)." I only made it this far through the article before deciding to share it. This link works even if you're not a LWN subscriber (but if you like this article, why aren't you?) https://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/762570/06998c7ee75bc472/
"Queercon is a conference within a conference. Taking place within DEF CON, Queercon is a social network of LGBT hackers that gathers each year to host events, talks, and a kickin’ pool party. Since 2012 they have also been building electronic badges as part of the fun and I can vouch that they’re contenders for most creative badge design every single year." cool!
