Well I'm pretty sure, yeah. I also come from the category theory side, I'm not a programmer, even if I write Python GUI's for experiments on quantum computers (>inb4 Python GUIs, >inb4 /g/ elitism). Btw.
You may subscribe above. I'll do a video series on what I read in the book in June

Don't get me wrong, I like Haskell and the way programmers break apart mathematical structures that suit them

I thought Nvidia's Tesla revenue was supposed to be big considering how much GPU compute is shilled, it's barely 15% of their total revenue.

What gives? They're basically the only GPGPU vendor at the moment because AMD's GPU division is busy sniffing cocaine.
GPGPU is a small part of the HPC(which itself is only 15-20% of the datacenter) market, and the part that deals with number crunching with minimal incoherent branching is where Tesla fits.
Everything else is done by CPUs.

tl;dr GPU - good for dumb and simple workloads
CPU - good for complex workloads

I had another script-opts= enabled in mpv.conf and I was wondering why mpv ignores everything from /mpv/lua-settings/osc.conf
Thank you very much, anons.
Apparently the volume indicator shrunk after tinkering with config, is there any script-opts= parameter for it's size (and location)?

Best Language in 2017
132 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
I know both Lua and Python for scripting purposes, but I haven't personally used Lua in a while. Why is it any better/worse than Python?
Java, winner every year since its inception.
You can learn Lua from inside out in a matter of a couple weeks of intense learning. Without the standard library (it is a good educational task to remove it) Lua is only 10000 lines of C, and with standard libs, it's 15000 lines of C. Python with the standard libraries is 50x larger, and it would take you months, if not years not learn the language to the same extent as Lua.

If you put yourself to the task of writing a full Lua/Python interpreter, and then compare their capabilities, you would see that Lua is just superior, because white the capabilities are very similar, the codebase size difference is HUGE.

Python is just a bloated Lua with a bloated standard library.
>literally any well written JVM language will rekt your BEAM aids at concurrency.
What does this even mean (aside from you not knowing how to use "rekt")? How will it "rekt" BEAM's lightweight threads with preemptive scheduling? Besides, if you knew your JVM you'd know that concurrency doesn't have to, and shouldn't, be approached as a language-level feature. Quasar (http://docs.paralleluniverse.co/quasar/) proves it. But even Quasar isn't preemptive. HotSpot simply can't give you the guarantees that BEAM gives.
>yet-another-llvm-backed language
It isn't. Go's primary compiler does not use LLVM.
Dedicate half a day to dig through Lua source and half a day to dig through Python code, and then compare how much of the languages you now understand.
