2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Why is it every single Apple product always has some systemic defect that causes complete system failure within 2 years?

This is so interesting. AMD fabbed a big part of the chip that doesn't benefit from a shrink at the ultra cheap 14nm size, and then fabbed the high performance little chiplets at 7nm to get a chip that overall has a HUGE die size, but at the same time has awesome yields and high performance.

AMD has done something very intriguing this year with Rome.

Is this the inevitable path for all modern chips for all devices? Is this going to be exclusive to high performance clusters? Is this not without disadvantages? Can this be upgraded and improved to the point where it's the same as one-die designs? Discuss.

Thoughts on those new mini notebooks?
>Intel Core m3-7Y30
>8 GB DDR3
>256 GB SSD
>7-8" 1080p IPS Display
>Proper stylus
>6000+ mAH battery

Pretty epic if you ask me.
Just hook it up to a big screen and proper peripherals for serious work or even light gaming.

Do coders really listen to this kind of music when developing hacks?

The downside of free meals in the office

No.68458949 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
If the office is not large enough(lets say <1000 ppl), it could be difficult for introverts. Because everyone knows each other, and you need to eat lunch and social with other ppl every single day. No place to hide, and no excuse(like buying lunch/eating outside) to avoid other ppl, without giving out an unapproachable impression.

It’s not like a lunch break. Rather like a team lunch/company networking event EVERYDAY.

I know I should social with my colleagues. And they are super friendly and nice. And I do sit with them everyday during lunch looking super friendly and enjoyable too. I sincerely care about them to the appropriate extent and would like to know more about them(again, to the appropriate extent). I also understand the mere social gesture and frequent meeting and greeting, although its content may be meaningless, will facilitate positive connections among ppl.

It’s just there is no “me” time all day, drains my energy out. I guess an office really needs to be large enough for introvert to breath.

How much longer before Adobe ports Photoshop to GNU/Linux?

This is hands down the main thing holding GNU/Linux back in the art productivity department. Gimp still can't even come close, and while Krita is pretty decent, it's still buggy and mainly for drawing.

macOS Hackintosh Performance

No.68464446 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Using an Apple machine feels much smoother and lag-free than a comparable specced Windows machine, which will lag and stutter much more.
Is this entirely due to the software being optimized for the hardware, or is macOS just a better OS?

In other words, does macOS on Hackintosh machines perform just as well as it does on Apple hardware, or does it have a similar performance to Windows?

hi /g/
what are the best ways to learn cpp from the beginning? I'm on technology uni right now on 1st sem and basically our lecturer teaches us about things that nobody even uses anymore.
