So I got an iPhone 8+ A couple of months ago and now and now it’s bent.

I took it to the Apple store and the guys told me it’s just a cosmetic damage

It’s dangerous? Can it explode?

The problem with this is the tiny .96" screen that only displays 16x8 characters with a decent sized font (8x8 including space between letters) or 32x11 characters with a shitty tiny font (4x6 with spaces between letters) that would likely make the screen hard to use.

Use of effectively nop instructions (such as
lea edi,[edi+eiz*1+0x0]
) for alignment purposes is one sign, I think.
repz ret
is another one which uses the repz to align the next instruction. Compilers typically use that one.
>>
intelligently scheduled instructions that make use of architecture ports(such as having certain alu instructions "oddly" dispatched before others) tends to imply compiler usage

also nop alignment for cache lines
>>
>>66032307
If you see any of the following, could be a significant indication, depending if you are looking at the whole or part of a program being hand-written...

Padding with NOPs
Using instructions in unusual ways
SIMD code
Virtual calls using tables
Identifying compiler strings
Code which looks like it came from other C code (e.g. c lib)
Bridge code
Stack protection code in subs
Access to sourcecode indicating it's hand-written

I am genuinely curious /g/ ... Is the idea that "because less people use *nix, people don't write viruses for *nix". Is this logically viable? Is this how actual virus makers think? Likewise, how likely is it for different distributions of GNU/Linux to get viruses.

Legitimate question here. Lately, I've been considering making the switch. I've really enjoyed the last year or so I've spent with Ubuntu then debian, and just recently installed antergos. The installer for that, though, was a massive pain in the ass, and I had to do some grub style work that I'm not at all familiar with, plus some manipulation of boot/efi files.

Anyways, it got me thinking. I probably fucked something up somewhere, and it's a matter of time before it comes back to fuck me. Maybe this would be a good time for me to go about following the arch install process and move to the next level of computer competency. Plus, it would really be nice to be more familiar with my system.

My only concern is with day to day system maintenance. I'm not one to shy away from it, and I've certainly spent a good deal of time messing around and exploring with my other distros. However, I'm a graduate student, and I don't want to have some update pushed through that just totally fucks me out of nowhere. I also don't want to have to spend like an hour a week reading through forums to make sure updating won't break anything. So I guess my question is, assuming I don't get crazy with things and use this primarily as a work station, how much time/effort am I going to have to put in to making things not fall apart? Are there packages that can help manage that? Are catastrophes generally easy to avoid?

Like I said, I'm very interested in learning, and I'm more than willing to explore and fix things as they arise, and I've gone through more than my share of man pages. But this is also kind of a hobby for me, and maybe arch requires some level of consistent dedication that I just don't have the time or energy to commit. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

>But this is also kind of a hobby for me, and maybe arch requires some level of consistent dedication that I just don't have the time or energy to commit. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
On Arch since 2009, it took me about 6 months before getting the right configuration for me, including some automation of update for AUR packages. Maintenance has been pretty much effortless since then and Arch devs also made and less breaking changes since the introduction of systemd. It's actually very robust now despite the memes.

Is he right about the state and necessary future of software development /g/?
I'm not knowledgeable enough to judge.

My best summarization:
>The "30 million" refers to all the known/approximated code underneath your code/a software writer's code
>The problem with modern software and software development is that we are writing software on top of software (Operating Systems) instead of hardware, like back in the 80s and early 90s

>The reason for this is a mixture of hardware manufacturers not cooperating, laziness, and historical hardware experimentation which is no longer valid
>It's impossible to reliably test code because of the massive abstraction you're working above
>It's impossible to make truly performance or creative code due to API limitations/friction, and bugs
>It's possible for hardware guys to make an ISA for a SoC (which is a very likely future of PCs)....
>and this is what they should do so we can make software independent of the OS and all other software (if desired), or at the very least far more independent (memory given and taken from an ISA instead of the OS)

Micron is solid, Toshiba make even better drives for extreme workloads or environments but are harder to find.

Samsung can be hit or miss but the problems crop down the line, seems like they tune their firmware for benchmarks up front and then tighten the bolts later.
