undervolting wont reduce performance, if you undervolt too much your card will just crash.
It's same performance (Actually higher) at lower voltage (Less heat). Less heat = more thermal headroom = more boost = more performance
try it and find out.
you see no artifacts on new amd cards you just get worse peformance. double check with a vram bandwidth test.
2/3 front and 1 back is enough for a standard setup. If you have an AIO then you'd just have an additional 3 exhaust fans at the top of the case, since that's the only place the AIO should go.
I don't mind going beyond the standard setup.
I have a big case and I don't mind adding more fans, but the ultimate goal is to reduce noise both at idle and at load.
I don't want to add side fans if it'll just increase the noise with minimal cooling.

Hmm, thermal pad seems interesting, would consider using it for next gpu, but that may void warranty.
Thermal pad + putties costs ~40euros, which is half price i would pay for upgrading to 3070ti.

If microsoft started charging, say, $50/mo to allow you to turn down and deny unwanted updates, would you pay it?

Would that be profitable for them, all those many thousands of instances of $50/mo coming in from all over the world. vs. the difference between the value of stolen data collected under old versions and the data that would be collected under updated versions?

Because they'd be keeping all the current telemetry and selling the data they already steal, the $50/mo would not be a replacement for that income but a supplement to it.

Therefore, they would have to determine how long the average user will refrain from updates (at the $50/mo rate) and then project the value of data that is not yet stolen, and the rate at which that data can be stolen during that timeframe.

Is there a balloon to the value of the data in the end, due to their "ai" plans? Would they simply charge the $50/mo and simply make updates more stealthy, maybe leave the new update system out of language in the deal and snooker everyone? Would it even be feasible for them to do a straight-deal sort of thing to get at this growing paranoid market?

Why listen to hours of sob stories, when there is no time? Why learn hundreds of utils that will change in next release of windows when just deleting them is more efficient?

I think I might start rejecting project interviews because most of them go this way, and it's too big of a time sink. It gives too much time for interviewers to get in their heads about smaller details and with the state of the market right now they are looking for any reason to reject you.

I've had ones where what I was rejected for wasn't even part of the spec sheet they provided, and their justification was "you were supposed to ask questions". Bitch you aren't paying me yet how much time do you think I have
That's where you point them to their company contract clause that anything they store on a company device belongs to the company. I do that every time a user gets upset that their laptop SSD failed and they lost 37,581 photos of their grandkids they were inexplicably storing on a company machine.

Not my fault if you use company property for personal data.

> and those repeated calls did NOT get optimized out
That was never the argument. The argument is that he repeated calls are negligible in terms of performance and that more readable concise code is more important than negligible performance gains.
> objectively worse to repeat calls like that
I understand why you personally might consider it this way, but you are actually directly going against advice that is given in popular literature, by very well known and respected software architects such as Martin Fowlers Refactoring Book. Here he specifically describes how one of his common refactoring methods is inlining variables into method calls. His reasoning is that more local variables stand in the way of another common refactoring method, which is extract-method, where he extracts logical parts of a function into it's own helper function, thus reducing the complexity of the original function.

Can read it here: https://portal.mytum.de/wos/chrisitansFolder/Refactoring_improving_the_design_of_existing_code.pdf/

Search for "Inline Temp". He also adresses the topic of performance here, search for "Refactoring and Performance"
Just to add to this: I really feel like there simply is no wrong or right here. But I feel like people like you, who have very strong opinions about this and shit all over pull requests for this, are indeed very wrong. Because it is a very legit coding practice that very respect sofware devs use and to pretend it's wrong or somehow unconcise and hard to read is just wrong. You personally might not want to code this way and that is fine, but not everyone has to code the same way you do.

Should I open a brand new iPad Pro before selling it? Like, is it a good idea to prove there's an iPad in the box to keep a buyer from saying I sent them a can of sardines in an iPad box, or should I keep it sealed for max judengeld?

Also, the backstory here was cool story bro material. I sent a 1st-gen iPad Pro 128GB to Apple for a battery replacement. Their system fucked up hard enough that a senior advisor spent a month trying to sort it out for me, and finally decided the path of least resistance was to send a brand new iPad Pro 12.9 512GB 5G.
yea i know he doesn't care if it's on the internet, but he's asking if it's bad if it is
i'm also adding to your statement, not refuting it

I would, but leave as much of the original packing material in-tact as possible. People feel comfortable with the "full experience" of opening something (Apple fags, am I right?)
if it's only been in your hands, and it's sealed, from apple, how could it not contain what it says it does?
i would leave it sealed
maybe weigh it or something if you're paranoid

An example of a structure that follows the Unix philosophy.

Core - bus protocol
Everything else - small tools which follow that protocol.

Same as systemd, but more interchangeable and decentralized. That's all.
>what the user uses is simply front-end.
When the front-end of your software necessitates direct control over something like drawing onto a canvas strictly decoupling front from the back makes reasoning that kind of software unnecessarily complicated. That's not to say you shouldn't decouple where it makes sense and in fact this idea has been popular for a very long time.
>the programs in the back end would still be small
>Although now many programs do that
Using tiered server architecture as a basis to develop applications and programs is not some new concept and has been in practice for many decades. Decoupling front from back within an application in no way necessitates factoring back-end functionality into separate programs. This is not at all against the concepts of modularity or decoupling, which is also not something inherent to UNIX philosophy. I for one inherently disagree that every complex structure should be split into individual programs all communicating over separate sockets to some kind of front-end. This makes development needlessly complicated through necessitating the abstraction of a wrapper in the first place versus being able to reason about processing on the back-end in a much more succinct and simpler way, which makes applications much easier to maintain and develop.
>used debian longer than the average age of a user on 4chan and chooses to spend time here
i dont want to end up like you
>This makes development needlessly complicated through necessitating the abstraction of a wrapper
True, I just like when I can use my program somewhere else, without having to go into its code base, remember its logic and structure. Although this will take more time at the time of development, but as a result I can easily use this program in other tools without modifying. Well, at least significant.

I don't think there is a specific best method for developing programs and tools, it all depends on the situation.
I just love versatile things. They approach the philosophy of kiss, which I empathize
>When do you even notice it exists?
When doing network configuration or maintenance.

It's especially shit when paired with network manager. It's probably fine when network consists of uniform machines, but when there's variety of different systems/distros it becomes a pain.

When initram boots, it changes to my set font ok

but when it enters TTY1 it does a screen reset, like it changes resolution? but it changes to the same res 1080p and the consolefont is reset to the default one....
why? I can't find anything.
Grub worked just fine, it would keep the same font and resolution to TTY

I have set this.
