  • 2019 is one step closer...

    2017 is closer, we only care about 2017

  • HomeOS vs Google's Nest acquistion

    , magicalclick wrote

    A lot of Apple fans are unhappy with it. For me, I will just stay away from killer AI house, remotely turn on AC to waste my money, and remotely unlock my door for thief easy entry. It makes things too easy. Hack into account with social engineering. Check if anyone is home remotely, unlock front door remotely, get in, grab stuff, leave before dumb user gets suspicious.

    it's only a thermostat Smiley 

  • Building a home NAS

    I decided to go with a standard version of Windows Server and a mini-ITX form factor motherboard and SFF case like the Silverstone SG05, or the Fractal Design Node. I use mostly Windows, and Open source implementations of SMB suck in terms of performance, based on what I've researched so far, freenas is particularly notable. I don't want my bottleneck to be the software, that would be kinda stupid, so no Linux. I really liked freenas, but was quite disappointed when I looked at the numbers a while ago.

  • Visual programming language vs text based programming language

    A general purpose Turing complete language would be quite impossible to represent efficiently using visual markers and blocks, not to mention coding productively in that, domain specific languages (like Verilog) are more suitable for that sort of representation. It is useful however to have a representation of some of the code visually, like threads, state, UI etc. and some specific aspects of the language can be represented visually.

    I think games still need to deal with GC pauses, so, not too much Wink

    that, yeah, plus if you need all the cycles, something that "hides" things from you won't do, but some games might be able to deal with the latter

  • Is there no Microsoft Redmond Tour?

    , RanmaKei wrote

    @MasterPi:yeah that would have been a good idea. I met some friends that knew Microsoft employees(one worked in the xbox gaming division on the forza game and I met him), but the employee didnt offer to give a tour. He just mentioned that I could visit the visitor center. Perhaps it was because their team is busy getting ready for the xbox one launch.


    I did a quick walk around some of the campus and it looks pretty awesome, just couldn't go inside Sad


    you need better friends Tongue Out

  • xbox one and ​multi-​tasking.

    That is disappointing because when no app is running or app running the in background, there is zero use for GPU, and yet, it is so greedy holding GPU resource and don't use it. I would at least implement reserved GPU for apps when it becomes visible. I hope the directors were smart enough to think about this. XBOX One hardware is already weaker. I think it is not too bad. But, only able to play game with portion of already weaker hardware just eerrrk. I hope this is not the case in actual product.

    a GPU it's not a general purpose CPU, you can't just throw it in there and say, hey app, use it, there are classes of problems where a GPU makes sense, when you usually dealt with it on a CPU, and even so there there's other concerns like I/O where that might make any theoretical benefits invalidated, but I get you

  • No mood to work

    I imagine your team is very, very small, and people do way beyond their responsibilities and role?

    I love the idea of an internet class Smiley

    reminds me of a presentation at NWCPP about a language, who's name I forgot,  where you could have cloud statics, and there was a special keyword for these types of data members
