Option 1:
>find another job
Option 2:

>leave the beard at home
Option 3:
>convince employer that the software you currently use (or know an alternative for) is better or just as good
>>
>>47231649

Option 1 & 2 not optional, besides I like the job otherwise.

Regarding option 3, the team uses Skype of all things to communicate. I suppose my only option is to sandbox that trash, any recommendations?

No, it's just a valve body. You'll find one in any automatic transmission (there are a few exceptions with early A/T transmissions that used a fundamentally different system)

Modern liberal politics tells them that they are children who need bullshit identity politics to succeed

They do this with racial minorities too and I say this as a half Pakistani

I don't need to be coddled like a child. It shocks some liberals when a brown person such as myself won't accept everything they tell me unquestioningly

What's better, 4GB of RAM in dual channel, or 6GB of RAM in single channel?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
Dual channel just gives you additional bandwidth so your system can potentially access more data per cycle, but if the 6 GB stick is a faster clock than the 4 GB sticks, the 6 GB stick will respond faster.
>>
>>47231863
But OP has 3 2GB sticks
>>
6GB because "muh gigs" and the fact that you will never run RAM-intensive tasks on your shitbox.

No vim thread? Vim thread!

You know the drill: Share configs, tips, ricing,... anything related to Vim or NeoVim.

Newbs more than welcome... because once you learn Vim, you'll never have to learn & waste time on constant influx of new hipster editors/IDEs that come and go every 12 months.

Im pretty sure its sound to calculate it by similar amounts of pixels, 1920x1080 is like 2x10^6 pixels roughtly, so figure out what 4:3 resolution would give that many pixels and those should be comparable (at least in manufacturing cost, if im not mistaken).

I write software on vim through ssh. It's impossible to test the software on my local machine because I'm writing server modules for a linux box which I can't just replicate locally.
It's ridiculous to copy a file to local machine, edit, then copy back to remote just to compile and test it repeatedly until the project is finished.

Back in the 90s before all this Javascript and HTML5 garbage, when the web was just text and images, I was able to browse the web on a machine with 128 MB of RAM. I wish Rob Pike and friends would create a replacement for the web. Although they'd probably advocate for Gopher. They seem to like gophers.

There are JSON libraries in C out there

So, mpv developer wm4 has turned against what he deems to be "placebo" features. He has kicked Haasn from the project, who was a prominent of such features. These features include the madvr style upscaling. Without these features, then mpv is somewhat pointless. It's just another video player. The appeal of mpv for me, was that it did streaming better than vlc and did video rendering better than mpc+madvr. The best of both worlds.

wow, fucking TOLD turbo autists
>>
>>47231888
mpv is pretty good already, if wm4 removes all placebo you can just jump ship to hassn, and hope hassn doesn't end up breaking his own
Though we might end up stuck with old versions, at least they're pretty good
>>47231897
>You just said "Because people can dual-boot or run it on Wine". Make your mind up. If you don't use windows why do you care what an application does compared to a closed source windows application?
I ran it on Wine, it was the only video player that had color management before mpv, i don't own a broadcast monitor with a hardware LUT and the broadcast LUT holders are overpriced and provide lesser quality
>>
>>47231916
Ok, so I still don't give a fuck what you think of mpv or whether you use it or not.
>>
>>47231897
>No, my responses are based on not giving a shit about what you think the software should be. It's open source, if you don't like it then fork it and make it what you want it to be. Me no caring if you're crying about it or not is not me moaning.
