is there anything worse that that "siliver painted plastic" trend of the mid 2000s?
as soon as it got scratched it turned black so after a while you had black scuffs all over your mp3 player or your headphones or your computer case and it looked like shit

What is RISC-V?

RISC-V (pronounced “risk-five”) is an open instruction set architecture (ISA) based on established reduced instruction set computing (RISC) principles. In contrast to most ISAs, the RISC-V ISA can be freely used for any purpose, permitting anyone to design, manufacture and sell RISC-V chips and software. While not the first open ISA, it is significant because it is designed to be useful in modern computerized devices such as warehouse-scale cloud computers, high-end mobile phones and the smallest embedded systems. Such uses demand that the designers consider both performance and power efficiency. The instruction set also has a substantial body of supporting software, which fixes a usual weakness of new instruction sets. The project began in 2010 at the University of California, Berkeley, but many contributors are volunteers and industry workers outside the university. The RISC-V ISA has been designed with small, fast, and low-power real-world implementations in mind,[2][3] but without over-architecting for a particular microarchitecture style.[3][4][5][6] As of May 2017, version 2.2 of the userspace ISA is fixed and the privileged ISA is available as draft version 1.10.

It's probably possible to write a program that determines this for simple programs/algorithms, like it is possible to determine if `some` programs halt.
But, like the halting pronoun, It's impossible in the general case.
>>
>>64388784
Cryptography robustness to cryptanalysis all comes down from the seemingly mysterious way a series of consecutive prime numbers could be built. That is, there is no known procedure with which you could calculate the n-th prime number without knowing the previous ones. Prime numbers all share a same property, but it doesn't look they are calculated from the same set of rules.

I remember when smart phones were first becoming popular, and the iPod touch was already out as a sneak preview. Everything felt so fresh and fertile back then, like we finally had a portable device that could do anything.
I had mine loaded with all kinds of shit like console emulators, text editors, media players, and basically anything else my PC did for me.
Turns out we had a textbook definition of "jack of all trades, master of none" on our hands. Now I don't use my smart phone for anything "smart" besides web browsing and I don't even like doing that since it's like using the web in 2005 when most sites barely worked.
Maybe someday we'll have phones will real input methods and maybe even a real OS. Until that point comes I've lost faith in smart phones and probably won't get another. Definitely nothing "high end" because it literally makes no difference.

Was actually thinking of it.
But not in your brain.
You just need a kind of special artificial nerve to connect to the important parts of the brain.
The CPU(along with a mini GPU, for AI assistance and high-def holo-hallucinations) should be jammed into some easily exposed part of the body, like the clavicles or something, so you can easily remove or upgrade it.

I think we'd obtain insane things we can't even imagine, with such fusion.

>>64394148

We have good knowledge of circuitry, but we know jack shit about the human brain. Not to mention computers work by doing extremely simple operations a gorillion times a second, whereas the human brain works by... God only knows how. I would say it's like an analogic computer, but it's probably a different paradigm altogether that we haven't even conceived of yet.

I don't keep crap that's irrelevant. If I do keep crap, I keep it in a logical directory structure. If I had to depend on a graphcal file chooser, I'd rely on KDE/dolphin, but i don't.

It's a question of knowing wnat you're doing, how you're doing it, and what tools work for you.

So how exactly do use all those phone VR headsets such as Google Cardboard and all those others. With PC games?
There is just a bunch of crappy mobile app tech demos with nothing of worth whatsoever. How do you link it to a PC to play PC games?

And yeah I realize all of those phone VR headsets are utter crap and pure garbage. And that they can't be compared to the Vive or the Oculus or whatever. But surely you can do something with them, right?
>>

Well, you _can_ get a high DPI HDMI screen with the right size and fit it inside one of those headsets, but getting head tracking and related to work will be much harder.

>>64394552
>You don't.
What about all those anons claiming that they've been using it to play games like Illusion's porn games or other stuff then. Were they lying?
>>
So I try to google search this topic. And I found all kinds of stuff. Like OpenVR, OSVR, KinoVR, Trinus, VRidge, Riftcat, and all kinds of stuff.
But which one of these are even any good? And how do you even install OpenVR? Do you have to compile it yourself?

You'd assume that there was a simple open source application with no bloat or mal/adware infesting it. But I perhaps not.
