Firstly, this tweet is the PARENT praising their child, and they're biased. Secondly, the kid knows more about computers than the parent, and probably would not describe what he did as 'building a computer'. "I just plugged something in, mom"

>>61062852
FORTRAN is not very good for dealing with strings and more complex data types, but handles numerics very well. It also (used) to have the more mature OpenMP, threading, and MPI implementations, now C parity is pretty much there.

Pointer aliasing was the main reason FORTRAN has superior performance - to elucidate, FORTRAN doesn't strictly use pointers, so compilers simply assumes that you cannot edit overlapping memory regions, which can be unsafe. C doesn't assume this static nature and therefore forces a memory call again which is slower. There's also compiler tricks which have to work around this concept (it's a feature, not an issue per se) which also slows things down, but to emulate their performances you can just use set a compiler flag or use the restrict keyword.

At the lower level, such as linear algebra libraries and routines, Fourier Transform libraries, etc. are written in FORTRAN, C, and some asm and then passed to programs, including C and higher level languages like Python+Numpy or Julia. This is how they keep abstract languages just as performant.

Alright, I just got fucked by a power outage in my house due to lighting/thunder (whichever one it is that causes this shit to happen) and my graphics card somehow got fried by it and everything else is fine.

What's a good replacement for a gtx 970? it's a gigabyte model and apparently they have some warranty. if that doesn't go through I'll definitely need a new card, what's a good replacement with consideration for the horrible markups due to cryptocurrency miners?

The processor it's paired with is a i7 4790k and I do game a bit and due video editing. Should I just grab another 970 or go for something new?

I'm still butthurt.

Is it possible to own a good Android phone that can be supported with Android builds for a long period of time, or am I expected to pay $500 for a new phone every year? How the fuck is it that only Apple gets it right?

Oh fuck off as much as I loved my iPhone 4 it's the last of the 32bit I devices man. Beyond legacy at this point of their software stack.

Agree with you though you should be able to put an old .ipsw on it if you choose. The way iTunes verifyies / denies perfectly functional old versions of IOS fucking shits me. They don't support it anymore and you own it ? Should be open game for any custom Rom you feel like.

It's already been mentioned once or twice but go for LineageOS. The builds are nightlies, yes, but literally crashing less often (not once, yet) on my Oneplus 2 than the latest OxygenOS update from Oneplus. It's the same thing as Cyanogen, they're keeping up the open source development after it went corporate.

2 years of OS updates and 3 years of security patches is pretty poor for a device that expensive. Also considering how minor the updates are these days a 2-3 year old phone of today will probably be just as good as a new one.

You cant blame qualcomm but no one is being forced to use them.
