help /g/
I need a new phone but I can't find anything that suits my wants.
I need a phone that is not 5.1 inches large. I like 5.0 or 4.7 inches
if possible vanilla version of latest android
micro sd a must
don't care about battery, if removable its a plus
3GB of RAM
latest / snappy processor.
at least 32GB of internal storage
Decent Camera

Do any android phones match this criteria? I don't want to buy a shitsung s6 and pay a grand for 128gb storage and have a phablet in in my pocket...I'm waiting for the Z4 Compact but not sure if its coming to the states; if anyone has anything better to suggest, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Help me /g/, I cant decide between 24 CRF or 28 CRF for a ripping a big ass DVD collection.

The collection in mind is MAD TV seasons 1 and 2, both totaling around 30 hours. My goal is to collect all seasons and archive them in a 64GB microsd to watch them on my Note 3 later. Pretty old show but I really liked the clips on youtube.

Anyway, I did 5 test encodes of random 10 minute clips (all with 80 kbps vorbis audio) and found out that on average 28 QRF = ~22MB/10 min and 24 QRF = ~37MB/10minutes. So since there are 321 episodes of around 45 mintues, 28 QRF would give me around 31GB for all 12 seasons and 24 QRF would give me around 54GB for all 12 seasons.

God dam, now that all that math is done all that is left is quality. I don't want a placebo 100-300GB archive but I don't want too see too many artifacts either. Maybe you all have more experience in video encoding.

>TL;DR
>Is 28 QRF something you would use to encode a dvd collection or is the quality so appalling that you would only use 24 QRF or below?
I ask this because I can't bring myself to decide on either one.

>a smoother colour transition in 10bit colour would look identical to the same transition in 8bit colour because it's not possible for your eyes to actually see the difference.

You are retarded. You are speaking about color gamut and not bit depth.
Low bit depths at wide gamuts will produce visible color banding.
>>
>>48110024
just read the actual thread. We're talking about codecs here and not 10-bit monitors. 10-bit video codecs are retarded when you're just using 8-bit monitors anyways and especially if the source is 8-bit.
>>
>>48110074
What difference does 10-bit video make if the monitor your watching it on is 8-bit? You'll get the banding no matter what.
>>
>>48110041
>>48110089
10 bit encoding is nothing to do with the output depth. As I've mentioned previously, it refers to the internal depth and acts as a means of reducing rounding errors that would occur when using only 8 bits for calculations.
>>
>>48109968
When comparing older vs new codec you cannot expect to have same quality at same fps.
So encoding x265 at 50fps vs x264 at 50fps will yield better quality for x264.
You should be ready to sacrify performance for a new codec.

fn add(a: i32) -> Box<Fn(i32) -> i32> {

Nice meme.
Why doesn't Rust use a : like Pascal and ML do? Why does it need both Fn and -> instead of i32 -> i32 or Fn(i32) i32?
Why does an expression-based language have C-like syntax if some braces aren't even blocks?
Why do you need Box and move when a modern compiler can figure this out? It's the 2010s not the 1970s.
>>
>>48108885
It's because Rust doesn't curry.
a -> b -> c
really means
a -> (b -> c)
. The
Fn(a, b) -> c
shows that Fn(...) is the arguments tot he function, although not sure why it isn't just
(a, b) -> c
like ML does for tuple arguments. The -> between is just retarded but it is basically mixing the type into the declaration more than ML would do. I do agree with what you have to say though, it is a terribly designed language.

The first evidence of this type was produced in the late 1970s by British parapsychologist Keith Hearne. A volunteer named Alan Worsley used eye movements to signal the onset of lucidity, which were recorded by a polysomnograph machine.

I had this cool idea of tabbing windows in M$ Windows.

Why is this not a thing yet? Found out that you can already do this in GNU/Linux.

Or is there a program already?

I never used WinAPI. Would it be hard to program something like this?

It starts on that board in the pic. Each circle has an arrow. The starting amount of either color is predetermined for each, but not the directions of the arrows. You're green and start on the top left, computer starts on bottom right as red.

You click on your own cells and they rotate clockwise. The goal is to eliminate the enemies' cells by absorbing them. When a cell rotates it infects whichever cell it points to, and if that one points to another it also infects it, so on and so forth until the chain breaks. If there's a cell that's 'pointing' (not being pointed to) to an infected one, it becomes infected as well.

It's a lot more complicated to explain than actually playing it.

>from the screenfetches I see. fedora seems more "bloated" than mint.
Package count has nothing to do with bloat. Fedora has a much more modular methodology towards packaging. LaTeX is an easy example. Ubuntu bundle a shit load of texlive components into texlive-*-extra packages, while Fedora un-bundles as much as humanly possible. If you want texlive-harvard, you install texlive-harvard. Not texlive-bibtex-extra.

Like, most people don't realize the chromium tarball is 2GB, and includes pretty much every library it uses because Google forked whenever they needed something. Debian? Oh yeah sure wrap that shit up with a bow we'll just put it in one package. Fedora? Fuck that noise - we aren't packaging 30 chromium-specific libraries or shipping a monolithic package that has its own fucking sqlite fork.
>>
>>48109786

I did. All the posts are dated 5+ years and concerning the old 2.6 versions. People also suggested the exact same solution (using the actual new, LTS kernel) and it makes sense.

Either way, this is obviously not an issue for thousands of people, all who keep using it without any problems. Luckily, there are other distributions and you can use those if this is really bothering you that much. But suggesting that this is a "critical bug", which should prevent someone from using the distribution is just ridiculous.

>On the other hand, it also forces you to think, so you learn a bit about the OS here and there.
that's not really an argument.
most people learn by reading a textbook with clear explanations, not c&p random things from the internet.
nor do you really learn about the OS, because there's no such thing as for Linux, but you learn mostly gentoo.
you will utterly fail your RHCA test (you know some real Linux cert for real jobs) if you only know gentoo.
>>
>>48110018
It's all matter of your preference, like with everything tbh
From my experience (if you disregard the package count available from the repos, which is considerably lower than ubuntu's) fedora seems to be as seamless as ubuntu, while being much more secure.
It also doesn't introduce distro specific bugs like debian/ubuntu, but their devs try to push all their fixes upstream (and i consider this good approach).

What i don't like is the build system.
Compared to building .debs, building .rpms is a lot more hassle.
