@feonixrift All of them at once!
kid vs school
@feonixrift of course it’s double data rate
@jaranta I didn’t notice until I switched to macOS, which pretty much is usable for at least killing the broken program even under insane loads. I think this stems from the fact that Linux (the kernel) has no idea that some “programs” such as terminal emulators, the DE, etc, are part of the OS and must be alive and responsive at all times.
@jaranta I think Linux in general has bad behaviour under high ram usage, so that might not be something Elementary can fix without switching kernels.
I tried out booting @elementary yesterday. Surprised by how many things worked:
✅ Hardware power off
✅ Font rendering
Things not working:
💀 Ugly grub/terminal boot in tiny font (probably fixable)
💀 Multitouch gestures (maybe fixable)
💀 Stuttering/tearing rendering and delays in menu pop-out etc
Of course I didn’t test many many things (palm rejection, high ram usage performance, suspend/resume, video playback, Bluetooth, external screens, ...).
In principle I really like what some libre OSes are doing (looking at you @elementary); building services and reusable components for common things like email etc, much like Apple does with iOS. I think having one language, one SDK, and components for all the cool stuff has enabled rapid development of apps on mobile and to some lesser extent on the Mac.
Highly recommend this talk from a conference I went to. Basically it discusses the numbers on how programming is moving (it’s very open source), and how the pipeline works (it’s a firehose, and it doesn’t). The focus is towards industry and education, but this has implications for FLOSS as well.
uspol, bathroom issues
@nebula This is...crazy
uspol, bathroom issues
The other day I learnt why there is even a bathroom issue in US politics: apparently US bathrooms are absolute rubbish. This has always confused me.
I never understood how someone could “police” a bathroom even, but that’s of course possible if there is essentially one shared room with stalls separated by virtually no walls, sometimes with gaps around the doors. And they have these in...schools, workplaces, etc, and not just airports and train stations?
@ashwinvis what worries me is that they seemed a bit arrogant when we met, which is why I see the possibility of them firing off random questions in that I cannot answer to hide something they misunderstood while still appearing to have done something, and I expect them to because they have a widely incompatible background. Basically, it’s a huge wild card.
@esty Thank you!
@Aepasek it’s a thing, we are supposed to give feedback to each other and so on. Don’t know why but everyone seems to have it for master’s theses, but in the humanities it’s also common for bachelors’ as well.
@ashwinvis I’m pretty sure it meant that my opponent didn’t read my thesis and isn’t great at English.
I met with my opponent to prepare our mutual thesis defence yesterday. His opening question was “you write ‘ca’ what does that mean?”, followed by a stern reminder that I must write out full abbreviations at first use when I explained (straining to hide my surprise) that it’s an abbreviation for “circa”.
Now worried about what will happen given that he could well start discussing literally anything.
Gender identity questioning
@meena It certainly would. I'd think there are interesting wrinkles to it as well.
