Just started programming, javascript first like all pleb faggots i suppose.

My thoughts after finally becoming somewhat proficient : There literally must be something easier and less fucking stupid and clunky than fingering your asshole with brackets and colon and shit.

>magic pocket computers
>robot blowjobs

>were still, still fucking manually typing brackets and shit in notepad++ (if youre using auto plugin youre still manually fixing other bullshit)

Great news for everyone who's bought anything from AMD lately!

Linus Torvalds has, in his infinite wisdom, accepted a major DAL/DC patch for AMD GPUs into kernel 4.15. The pull request which you can view here,
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2017-November/157803.html
will finally give GNU/Linux users HDMI and DisplayPort audio and other goodies like DisplaySync.

There's also a lot of goodies for CPUs merged into 4.15 including encrypted memory support and PCIe fixes and CPU temperature monitoring support.

The fact that this has taken so long to get basics like HDMI audio on AMD GPUs is a total scandal beyond belief but now the features are merged and you and your family will have access to this when the final 4.15 kernel is released and dripped down to distributions in the middle of January next year.

This is actually very good news.

It took so long because the codebase was such a clusterfucking mess that Linus refused to add it the first time AMD submitted. That was early 2016 and it's only now that its been cleaned up enough that it might not give the kernel cancer.
>>
>>63440401
It's a freaking huge amount of code though, takes a while for some 10 people to clean up 160k SLOC
>>
>>63440447
That was sort of my point. The issue really was that AMD should have done a better job of not letting it become the hairy mess it was. As is, Linus accepted it but wasn't to happy about it.
>>
>>63440501
They literally ripped it out of fglrx/catalyst and presented it to Linus at that time, it's now actually pulled in mainline.

Higher medium efficiency usually means less latency and I sure would like that. Better speeds are always welcome too.

At the end, with proper, efficient chips, a faster network translates to better battery life because your devices spend less time waiting for stuff to load and more time idling or in deep sleep.

Didn't the XZ Premium get some flak because it didn't look like all the other phones or some shit like that?
>>
>>63435913
But the majority of people are plebs, and the majority of the market dictates what the manufacturers would do.

If it were feasible we would have disposable phones that last 24 hours. Everything is on an account in the botnet and when the time is up, just NFC scan the old phone with the new one and throw it away. $20 for a basic, $50 for an iPhone Trash. That way you don't have to worry about broken screens or batteries dying, just fill the landfills.

Complain about a product, say another product works better. Then use that product. I am not disagreeing that there are features like pocket that are garbage. While we think it's garbage, there are others praising it.


No program is perfect. And I don't expect a company to cater a product 100% to my personal wants and needs.

>>63434655
Our definition of cheap is not the same.

Two years ago I paid $121.63 for 32Gb (16x2) DDR4 2133. It is now going for $137.02. 11.9% Price increase in two years. Hardly nothing.

$140.00 bucks for 32Gb of ram is cheap. You'll never max that out on a desktop workstation unless you have a memory leak.
