I guess it's a good thing but I can't help to wonder why they're doing this now. Aren't there only like 6 DX12 only games? How long until WINE has support for DX12?

Nah, he's still a dirty currynigger sociopath (oxymoron I know).

They won't be releasing a general purpose DX12 runtime installer. Support will be embedded in only a few select games,and only for Windows 7, no 8 or 8.1 - though I expect the community might be able to hack in support for these versions, too.

Unless this changes and they release a general purpose DX12 installer that's also compatible with 8 and 8.1, pajeetsoft is not based at all.

There's no way to keep cops from doing this. If EFF wasn't controlled opposition they'd use this as proof of the need to abandon facebook altogether.

>Security researchers have discovered a previously unknown feature in the Intel chipsets, which could allow an attacker to intercept data from the computer memory. The feature called Intel Visualization of Internal Signals Architecture (Intel VISA) is said to be a utility that is bundled by the chipmaker for testing on the manufacturing lines. Although Intel doesn't publicly disclose the existence of Intel VISA and is extremely secretive about it, the researchers were able to find several ways to enable the feature on the Intel chipsets and capture the data from the CPU.

>As a per presentation made by the researchers Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy of Positive Technologies at the ongoing Blackhat Asia 2019 conference in Singapore, their exploits of the Intel chipsets don't require any hardware modifications or special equipment. One of the techniques shared by the researchers involved vulnerabilities detailed in Intel-SA-00086 advisory that give access to Intel Management Engine (Intel ME), in turn helping enable VISA. Access to Intel VISA makes the computer's entire data vulnerable and obtainable for the attacker.



So these are the details of how they read 'encrypted cloud data' in data centers.

Is none of this mitigated with coreboot?


Breaking into the houses of their top level engineers and torturing them for information sounds more feasible tbh



Me_cleaner is included with coreboot and can help with some me attacks. Coreboot can help against uefi attacks. Lots of the recent intel exploits are against the cpu though.



How do I watch Positive Technology presentations? I don’t see them on their website.

 One input argument is the next best thing to no arguments. 
SetupTeardownIncluder.render(pageData) is pretty easy to understand.



>Now you want to define addition with numbers for every data type in your language?

Are you perhaps retarded? I was just pointing that mathematically, "procedures" are just a special case of functions. Because you said

>If there is no input, it's not a function.

which is wrong.

>Are you going to start saying that variables are now functions too?

This is what variables are in functional languages. There's no actual difference.

yea this was why i switched to cloveros, i'm downloading packages at 200mbit downloading from every mirror simultaneously



I understand this and I'm looking for alternatives.


Is Portage as easy to use as APT or YUM?


I'm not joking. I've been an Ubuntu / Debian user since I started. I've only occasionally used OpenSUSE, Fedora, etc.

Fuck it I'm going to try out Gentoo. Can't fucking hurt.



Gentoo is indeed the meta distribution, of course it's going to be more complex. If you're okay with others choosing what init or libc you must use (this includes the BSDs), fine, but don't go all "muh oldfag cred" over us. The advantages I listed are real, but the two real reasons are: I can escape the freedesktop braincancer "easily" and it's simply less worse than other GNU/Linux distros.


Every BSD has major turnoffs:


SJWland and has no clear vision except "we want to be like GNU/Linux!" with the same bloat.


Python tier about ignoring performance issues and its port tree makes Debian stable look bleeding edge. Other issues like GPL kiddie hatred and lack of FS at least as good as XFS.


Nice but lacks a modern FS.


Currently very WIP (aarch64, hammer2, ravenports, etc...) and lacks µarch support, but very promising.

Honestly, I'm looking at the last two more and more, but it's hard to justify leaving Linux and its generally higher performance level. Especially since only Dfly's synth and soon ravenports look like a worthy Portage replacement.

I have been noticing a lot of people have been picking up Linux "recently", really since about 2016 I have noticed a huge uptake in Linux use for normie stuff. I started using linux in 2008 and this what I would tell myself in about 2010 - enough to hit what I hear people call the "distro hop".

Install Debian. Over the last 10 years the debian installer has been rock solid at delivering .deb packages to the then hotness filesystem on the then hotness block subsystem, it can handle raid, crypto, lvm and multiple filesystems for interopt fun. If you come from an Arch/Gentoo background and are distro hopping but "look down" on debian, debootstrap install a testing install before you run your mouth near me. Ubuntu or whoever is just a customized debian, Ubuntu in particular set the frame work for both deb and services modifications but for the most part you either get clean cut Ubuntu or Debian with only usually modded services *or* debs - not even mint bothers cutting both and just has a debian and ubuntu version for a reason. So if you are interested and don't mind so called bloat then try the latest 6month cycle of ubuntu. If you are going for lts ubuntu install debian, "lts" or "stable" from any other project is a fucking joke in the face of stretch. Break virtual machines, specifically those you may be interested in "distro hopping" to; it is just your curiosity if they do something better and if you do happen to find something better like openrc or more modern packages just cut the debs yourself, you're also usually not the first and using others debs is no worse than using other's containers in my eyes. From my track record I have gone from Ubuntu to Debian to Suse to RedHat to Arch/Gentoo and in 2015 I learned the seceret to stop distro hopping; install the debian. Or the OpenLinux if it's 98. My point is at the moment the debian ecosystem is the best for getting things that work better else where in it's own system; without issue it supports the most technologies at once if not the most current and up to date technologies. But usually those too due to again, custom cutting ubuntu debs.

In more honest terms, that means the documentation is lacking, missing, if not plain incorrect, and that usability is in the negatives.



The Gentoo documentation is fine as hell and your average user will still fuck up. Doesn't mean the NixOS documentation isn't lackluster, which it is, just that your average noob will fail before the lack of documentation becomes apparent.

I more miss the times before certain convenient tech existed. The web was a more interesting place before every faggot with a room temperature IQ and an iPhone from mommy and daddy could shit it up. I lamentably didn't have much in the way of tech toys in the nineties and early 2000s, so I can't really miss things like PDAs, palmtops, and IR networking.


Creative Labs Soundblasters were garbage. SBPro emulation wouldn't do stereo on later cards because they were literally too cheap to implement one line. Their pseudo-midi stuff (compatible to nothing) on later cards was the same thing, literally too cheap to implement it correctly. They also had the shittiest, memory gulping DOS drivers I've ever seen. Their own midi implementation (again, to reduce costs) was a ridiculous cacophony of farty sounds. The only thing Creative Labs was ever good in was marketing and aggressively undercutting the competition at the retailers. There were tons of sound cards that were objectively better.

So I've been reading about computer and telescopic contact lenses for a while, and it seems so long ago now that the thought of it becoming mainstream tech just isn't even worth pondering. But honestly, it's the only tech leap worth exploring other than virtual goggle style developments (imo). Even bluetooth phone holograms like the proposed "cicret" bracelet seem kinda meh to me now. And I'd also hate to see these contact lenses appear miraculously during the spread of 5G.
