By Brian Fagioli

For better or worse, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) initiative seems to be moving full steam ahead. There are some very respectable distributions available in the Microsoft Store, such as Debian, Ubuntu, and Kali to name a few. Not to mention, Microsoft is trying to encourage even more maintainers to submit their distros with a new tool.

Apparently, some Windows 10 users have been clamoring for the ability to copy and paste both from and to WSL consoles -- a reasonable request. Well, as of Insider Build 17643, this is finally possible.

"As of Windows 10 Insider build #17643, you can copy/paste text from/to Linux/WSL Consoles!!! We know that this is a feature MANY of you have been waiting for -- our sincerest thanks for your patience and continued support while we untangled the Console's internals, allowing us to implement this feature. To ensure that we don't break any existing behaviors, you'll need to enable the 'Use Ctrl+Shift+C/V as Copy/Paste' option in the Console 'Options' properties page," says Rich Turner, Microsoft.

Turner further explains, "This setting can be set independently for each shell or shortcut: If you pin your shortcuts to your favorite shells (e.g. Cmd/PowerShell/Linux) to your task bar, and modify the properties of Consoles launched via these shortcuts, your settings will only be made to the affected shortcuts. If you later launch the same shell via the Start menu, or the run dialog, your settings will not be found as they'll have been saved to your pinned shortcuts, not your Start menu tiles/shortcuts, or registry settings."

As you can see in the above screenshot, this is very easy to enable, and there is no reason it shouldn't eventually make its way into non-Insider versions of Windows 10. Quite frankly, it is sort of odd that this functionality wasn't included from the get-go, as it seems to be a no-brainer. Oh well -- better late than never, I suppose.

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person reqPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Most people are teachers who ended up teaching because the couldn't get a better job. In addition to mediocre competence they often bitter and insecure, and want their students to be drones who memorize and regurgitate shit as they are told to. Such teachers fear bright students who want to acutally understand shit because they fear such students might expose their deficiencies or even surpass them in the more or less distant future. So they react allergically and try to make every student into a drone who doesn't challenge anything.



>people are teachers

And they should all be fired. Wasting everyones time giving lectures. The entire system is just a shitty accreditation racket.



Schools are known for hiring foreign teachers who "completed" PHD programs in india or other countries yet when they teach, it appears as if they know nothing about what they are teaching.

>AlterEgo is a closed-loop, non-invasive, wearable system that allows humans to converse in high-bandwidth natural language with machines, artificial intelligence assistants, services, and other people without any voice—without opening their mouth, and without externally observable movements—simply by vocalizing internally. The wearable captures electrical signals, induced by subtle but deliberate movements of internal speech articulators (when a user intentionally vocalizes internally), in likeness to speaking to one's self. We use this to facilitate a bi-directional natural language computing system, where users receive aural output through bone-conduction earphones without obstructing a user's physical senses. This enables a user to transmit and receive streams of information to and from a computing device or any other person without any observable action, in discretion and without invasion of the user's privacy. AlterEgo aims to combine humans and computers—such that computing, the internet, and AI would weave into human personality as a “second self” and augment human cognition and abilities.

RIP creator of WinRAR


I wonder what would happen if I tried to power a laptop (no battery) with a 12 V supply when it says it needs 19 V. I've used 20 V with no problem, but that's only a 1 V difference.

Do laptops have some sort of buck/boost converter inside which correct the voltage? Or will I break the computer?

2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



Using too little voltage is almost never dangerous (as long as the polarity is correct), it just might not do anything.




Ok I tried using a 12V 2A power supply on a chinkshit 20V 1A laptop which I don't care about too much. It worked fine even when the battery was removed (I opened a bitcoin miner to load the CPU, no problem) but it didn't charge the battery when I replaced it (charging light remained off, "power" light was on).



Instability (whatever the underlying cause) can almost always lead to data loss or corruption though.



I bet that any voltage sufficient to power the 5V rail on the voltage converter would be fine. 5V is basically the highest voltage used in a laptop aside from the battery and its charging circuit.

Imagine how nice it would be to stick a bunch of power banks to the bottom of a laptop (in series to give 10V) and have 24h battery life.



>Ok I tried using a 12V 2A power supply on a chinkshit 20V 1A laptop ... but it didn't charge the battery

Laptop lithium batteries are typically either in a 3S or 4S configuration which have a peak charge voltage of 12.6V and 16.8V respectively. The internal charging circuit would only be a buck converter which needs a bit of head room above 16.8V but would be fine stepping down to the 5V, 3.3V, etc. the rest of the thing needs to power on. This is why the 19V power pack is all but standard these days.

What do you think about Julia? Will it replace R or Matlab in some of their usecases? What do you think is an appropriate use for the language?

I'm particularly interested in hearing if someone made the switch from R and if yes, why.


faster for large datasets - if needed, has REPL, can call R if you need functions from your packages, seems to also compile on Open and FreeBSD, community seems eager to produce useful packages, plotting tools seem to be capable, syntax doesn't seem to be a mishmash of ideas like R, parallelism if you need it


python-style indentation, package system uses github, function overloading, there's a C transpiler, not made to be general-purpose, dynamic typing, not 1.0 yet


takes actually longer for small amounts of data (because of JIT compiler) than similiar slower languages, development seems to break packages as of now

On a sidenote: their community guidelines seem reasonable, but I've become allergic to those.

>In particular, do not sexualize the term "Julia" or any other aspects of the project. While "Julia" is a female name in many parts of the world, the programming language is not a person and does not have a gender.

It's possible for proprietary software to be better in all other regards.

It's reasonable for someone not to value the freedom status of software (much).



>Wolfram Alpha > R (professional) > SciPy (simple) > MATLAB (proprietary) > Octave (slow) > Julia (Pozzed)

This about as much a naive misrepresentation as the chart above your post. Your assessment is based upon feels and therefore worthless.


>All the important stuff in R runs in C

True, but there's limits on how fast that can make R. I think there's an article on the Julia wiki that talks about this and is generally applicable (think about what that means for loops). I think it was somewhere in the optimization article and also compares to how things are done in R.

There's interesting stuff to learn there, even if you don't intend to use their language. The wiki seems pretty good.



>When R and Python/Cython are all just sugary wrapper for C.

This is why the world is beautiful, and Julia is not.

Diagnostic features are far more important than the generated machine code being slightly better.

In GCC -Wall doesn't actually enable all possible language warnings (at least in C and C++) because GCC doesn't actually bother to implement them. Clang does but to still be backwards compatible with GCC its -Wall is the same and instead they include the -Weverything flag to actually enable everything. Many developers don't understand the benefits of strictly complying with the language, especially with large code bases, if I find myself ever needing the few % speed increase I could get by switching to GCC I instead use a profiler and hand optimise my code. The only time I ever use GCC is when I am writing kernel code.

>Diagnostic features are far more important than the generated machine code being slightly better.

Which is irrelevant to the fact that they are not the subject of this discussion.

What's stopping you from using, say Clang for its diagnostics in debug builds and making the final build with GCC for best performance, anyway? If you're autistic about standards compliance, your code should compile correctly with whatever compiler you choose.
