Seriously, no. There's been thousands of more accomplished younguns on Internets over the past 20-30 years than Schwartz. Bram Cohen was younger than Schwartz (during the Reddit era) when he sole-developed Bittorrent, for example.

>he had super sekret laptop hidden in a Uni building drift-leeching filez

Every University had that going back into the 1980s, dude. Mates of mine had a laptop with the hostname "Haven" that did the same thing.



Not such a genius, then.

The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.24.0. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

This release contains two very exciting new features: rustfmt and incremental compilation!

For years now, we’ve wanted a tool that automatically can reformat your Rust code to some sort of “standard style.” With this release, we’re happy to announce that a preview of rustfmt can be used with 1.24 stable.

Back in September of 2016 (!!!), we blogged about Incremental Compilation. While that post goes into the details, the idea is basically this: when you’re working on a project, you often compile it, then change something small, then compile again. Historically, the compiler has compiled your entire project, no matter how little you’ve changed the code. The idea with incremental compilation is that you only need to compile the code you’ve actually changed, which means that that second build is faster.

As of Rust 1.24, this is now turned on by default. This means that your builds should get faster! Don’t forget about cargo check when trying to get the lowest possible build times.

This is still not the end story for compiler performance generally, nor incremental compilation specifically. We have a lot more work planned in the future. For example, another change related to performance hit stable this release: codegen-units is now set to 16 by default. One small note about this change: it makes builds faster, but makes the final binary a bit slower. For maximum speed, setting codegen-units to 1 in your Cargo.toml is needed to eke out every last drop of performance.

If you've been here for more than a week, you know that that we're inundated with pointless Rust threads to an extent where there isn't much to say anymore. It's partly their own fault, for allowing the technicals of their language to be lost amidst the worthless SJW talking points espoused by a vocal section of their community.



>worthless SJW talking points espoused by a vocal section of their community

thats just about every community in the normie world tho, i mean my opinion of it is meh, but it would be nice to see that shit ignored and have some decent tech talk on this tech board...



That would be the dream. Politics is not technology.



There was never decent tech talk on /tech/.

What company makes the best HDDs and why is it Seagate?

74 posts and 8 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



I secretly hope for exactly that



I do, too--except not so secretly.



>not even a handful posts that are worth reading in the thread

What the fuck did you expect to happen after such a cum-bukkake'd OP?


All the Seagate disks I've owned always ran significantly hotter that WDs/Samsungs/HGSTs (even when idle) and were always developing some kind of additional problem after some time. It seems to me that the quality of the magnetic medium on the platters used by Seagate is comparatively low and the ECC system must work hard all the time to try and maintain data integrity, which results in both higher operating temperatures as well as reduced long-time reliability. But maybe someone else know more about this and can explain it better.

Godot 3.0 has finally dropped!



Along with modern rendering features like PBR and clustered forward rendering, Godot 3.0 also has VASTLY improved documentation:


You can script it with their python-like GDscript, or actually use a Python or C# (or any language that gets the bindings) plugin. It's free as in freedom, and it is hands-down the best fully-fledge engine for game design on Linux. Why aren't you making video games for freedom yet, /tech/?

How the hell do I get the NodePath of an arbitrary Object? I've been tearing my hair out trying to get this simple action to work.


It takes all its design cues from Unity except for a Python-like script instead of C#. It really aims to be a clone but with a few small tweaks.



So, as long as you know Python, coming to Godot with a background in Unity is relatively easy?

You can have a good comic every once and a while even if your body of work is holistically shit. I mean, it's basically just entropy. I think XKCD is so highly-revered moreso because of its kitsch value; e.g. it's a simple tool that exhibits an air of "fun" that you inject into boring, technical presentations to telegraph to people a sense of humor even if it isn't really evocative.



When a man speaks the truth...

But what would this make GNU/Linux then? Her younger clone that traded the nicotine compulsion for eating bits of her rotten feet, who has several implanted organs that are redundant and conflict with one another? When she tries to walk, one of the multiple legs give a step forward, but three others, which are each one in a different size start walking backwards, while another one that is barely recognizable as a leg but tries to functions as such keeps kicking all the others frenetically while the user justifies the insane kicking with 'well, at least this one follows the KISS principle more closely, I won't uninstall it'?

Speaking out of love though, I married the bitch and hope to spend rest of my life at her side.

The amount of times I have heard people say that third line...

These people are so afraid of change that if the UI even remotely deviates from what they're used to, even if there's a feature missing that they don't use, they go into panic mode like you just dropped them in the congo and said "good luck!" with no guide or instruction

one woman I tried to convert to libreoffice gave up when she couldn't find 1 button that she used on ms office, for POWERPOINT, one button was all it took to break her spirit

this is why it's so hard to get ANYONE to drop microsoft, they've so ingrained the ui of microsoft products that having to adjust to any change makes them feel violated, unless they feel like there is literally no other option

I've walked on burning coals to convince people that win10 is literally not an option so that they switch to linux, and the worst they've managed to do since the switch is require me to come over and update it for them, because even the update reminder is too fucking confusing to them

jesus, people don't even want to read what's on the screen and therein lies the problem, they just want everything done automatically for them so they don't need to think any more

I have relatives that bitch nonstop about how fucked their computer is, and they know I fix computers, the kicker is that they don't believe shit I say yet they believe everything they see on cyber crime dramas on tv.

So you want to kill google? And not just kill it, fucking demolish it? Three things need to happen. All of Google's money comes from advertising, analytics, and hosting. To kill google we need to drive up their operational costs while lowering their profits.

Fuck with their advertisements

If you have ever worked with adsense before you will know that the one thing they absolutely despise is telling people to click ads. They want people who are actually interested in products to click advertisements, because only they will be persuaded to purchase products. On top of that, companies pay google per click. If they are paying a ton of money and few people are buying their products, they will pull out.

STEP 1: Go on to youtube, google shopping, or anyplace else with adsense ads in private browsing mode on a vpn or proxy.

STEP 2: Click all the ads you possibly can

STEP 3: Hop on a new proxy/vpn/tor circuit, and clear out the browser

STEP 4: Repeat



Fuck with their file storage

Google stores everything you upload, and keeps it there even if it gets "deleted." Storing stuff costs lots of money, and high speed ssd drives to keep it all on aren't cheap. The more you upload, the more they pay.

STEP 1: Choose a platform that allows you to upload files(eg: youtube, drive, gsites, ect)

STEP 2: Get a file that is at or over the maximum file limit

STEP 3: Upload it again, and again, and again, and again

EXTRA STEP: If you are doing youtube make a huge file with a ton of random music, text on the screen, and game footage. Their matching algorithm will have to go through your whole 1hr + video and match everything there for monitization.

Now YaCy is using 3,6 GiB RAM out of 8, but I set it to do so, and I'm crawling english wikipedia. Network 160 KiB/s - 600 KiB/s. Processor - 20%. Hard drive - 89 GB (1 bilion indexes)



I meant milion indexes



>3,6 GiB RAM out of 8

wew, that's pretty bad. should i still let my 32 bit server run it?



To be clear, YaCy typically supplements your index with other people's indexes to let you search the web, so you're scraping Wikipedia so that you can have quicker access to those results, right?



I let YaCy use 4 GB of RAM it's my choice.

Here you have system requirements



It is faster, but searching indexes of other peers is fast too. Wikipedia isn't all crawled by YaCy network yet, so I thought I can do this (After crawling indexes are shared among peers).

No serious requirements other than custom domain support and some form of reliability/security. Multiple included mailboxes would be a plus.

this isn't even remotely surprising. protonmeme was obvious webscale trash from inception. it's only popular because it's hyped on techcrunch and shit. one of their selling points was "located in underground bunker", which provides nothing of use to the customer, but souds cool and appeals to polniggers. webscale trash is all SJW and employs meme methodology such as requiring phone to sign up, and IP blacklisting

I get speeds under 100kb/s for long videos and descending speeds under 300kb/s for popular channels with short videos even though all downloads start with a speed between 3 and 4 mb/s.

It's unnerving. I have to wait half an hour for a 100 mega audio for a stupid podcast when under normal circumstances it would take less than a minute.

Changing the user agent does nothing. I'm going to test if piping it through tor solves anything.
