Is 4GB of ram still normal in present day? I switched from 2GB and everything works perfectly. For me personally, it is enough.

yeah, a big part of the issue is consumer grade computers and professional computers are kind of blurring together; you have spotty 13 year old boys in their bedrooms using rigs that would be powerful enough to be a professional workstation. if consumer computers get capped at a certain level, then hopefully consumer software stays less resource heavy. plus it'd encourage pro software (daws, 3d modelling software, etc) to optimize better to get to da consoomers

There was a strange asian news show playing at a noodle shop I ate in earlier today. Half the screen was taken up by subtitles in fifteen different languages, and the anchors had the kind of engineered persona you'd expect to see in a religious recrutment video or a piece of wartime propaganda. I assumed it was created by some enviromentalist organization since the news stories seemed to revolve around animal rights (it was a vegan place and the owners where chinese so it would make sense that they would want to play that).
They where talking about disaster relief after an earthquake in japan when they said "The victims of the disaster where grateful to the supreme master for sending her blessing". I then noticed that the channel was called Supreme Master TV. Later on they had a montage of people from different countries singing about how the supreme master cured all their problems. All those subtitles? They where the languages of every country that has followers of the supreme master. I did some research on the supreme master later. She is a vietnamese spiritual teacher named Ching Hai. Turns out she founded the restaurant chain. I looked at the logo for the restaurant, it contains the supreme masters symbol. They where good noodles, would go there again.

I presume that you were eating in a place called "Loving Hut"? It's a vegan noodle shop chain run by Chinghai Sydney, (the supreme leader that you mentioned).
Found a list of their US restaurant locations.

I've got some family in Houston TX, so maybe I'll stop in and try it out next time I'm there.

Windows 8. Bought a new laptop with win8, then was made unemployed. Lived in a micro apartment with only cold water and next door to a factory. Depression set in.

Decided F* it, win8 is a horror show. Had played with Linux before (dual booted Fedora at university / well meaning parents bought me the RedHatBible when I was in high school) and just went full Linux this time.

Haven't gone back since. Main issue these days is finding a place selling laptops (often refurbished) without a win license tacked onto the price. Still poor. But at least my pc does my bidding.

I don't remember exactly why I got into linux.
I think I decided to set up a dual boot setup on my old laptop after reading about it on LifeHacker (I think). I didn't like it at first, but I did kind of like it. Now I can't imagine ever using Windows ever agoin.

Depends on what for.
Ungoogled Chromium for my botnet stuff like G Drive or Slack which I need for my job, that's why they have their own browser I don't want google to read out any cookies.
Falkon for all nonbotnet stuff like imageboards and Tor when digging deeper.

Before I distrohopped I just brave for the botnet stuff (bc the inbuild adblocker was good when going on yt) and chromium for the normal stuff. But fuck brave. Not sure if I'm going to stick to Falkon but it seems okay, haven't really read into it yet though. I prefer it over Brave because I feel like a faggot with software like that.

It just feels like soyftware. I see that they have useful inbuild adblocker and stuff, but you know something is off, if the logo looks like a it should attract fortnite-players. Also it's build on chromium so ungoogled-chromium is a better option, as it will always be the best chromium-based option. Brave really is just a good browser (imo) if you want to grind it's BAT, which kinda is the biggest cuckold-move in cyberhistory, as your sidehustle would be to let corpos rewire your brain into knowing their products and brands for virtual money that is owned by a big corpo.
Also there was that donation incident, where brave just "took" donations that were donated to creators via brave wallet.
>When Bitcoinist reported on the ability to tip content creators directly from Brave browser, that was a positive thing, right? Actually, not so much when it uses creators’ names and photos, to collect donations ‘for them’, without their consent.

>Is the format even the same for CPython, PyPy and other Python interpreters? Sorry for the questions, I have no idea how it works.
https://docs.python.org/3/glossary.html#term-bytecode
"""Python source code is compiled into bytecode, the internal representation of a Python program in the CPython interpreter. The bytecode is also cached in .pyc files so that executing the same file is faster the second time (recompilation from source to bytecode can be avoided). This “intermediate language” is said to run on a virtual machine that executes the machine code corresponding to each bytecode. Do note that bytecodes are not expected to work between different Python virtual machines, nor to be stable between Python releases.

A list of bytecode instructions can be found in the documentation for the dis module."""

https://docs.python.org/3/library/dis.html
"""The dis module supports the analysis of CPython bytecode by disassembling it. The CPython bytecode which this module takes as an input is defined in the file Include/opcode.h and used by the compiler and the interpreter.

CPython implementation detail: Bytecode is an implementation detail of the CPython interpreter. No guarantees are made that bytecode will not be added, removed, or changed between versions of Python. Use of this module should not be considered to work across Python VMs or Python releases."""

I'm not aware of a direct statement of the rationale behind that decision – it's not in e.g. the Design and History FAQ [0]. The spirit of The Python Language Reference suggests that it was specified in terms of an abstract execution model [1] precisely to allow more freedom for Alternate Implementations [2].

When running a python program, the following steps are taken:
Python source code -> abstract syntax tree (AST) -> bytecode
Hy replaces the "Python source code -> AST" step.

We should note that bytecode is an implementation detail.
CPython has its own format, Jython compiles to JRE bytecode, and other implementations can use more complicated means such as running and compiling simultaneously (JIT compilation).


>>1484
>Maybe they do it like this because there's no portable bytecode format?
It's simpler if you just replace the "source code -> AST" step.
AST is the ideal model to compile your code to
because it is the same level of abstraction as it's input (source code).
You can easily see create and run your own AST with python's ast library.
It's pretty trivial to even implement a simple language yourself using that library.

Doesn't it make a lot of optimizations impossible to do? Since you are basically translating your semantics into sugar-free Python.

I used one pretty recently when i (briefly) moved back in with my parents. I had bought a Sony Trinitron from a local classified about 7 years prior for the sum of five dollars. When I originally bought it i learnt that it had belonged to the sellers son whom, i shit you not, had died in a plane crash. I couldn't be arsed taking it with me when i moved out, so i left it at my parents place.

The Trinitron was the only monitor i had. No second screen. Going back to 1280x1020 in current-year -2 is painful if you do anything other than shitpoast on imageboards. Modern applications expect you to be using a widescreen display so the layout on most things is fucked. Ironically 4:3 works works good for a lot of news sites as the margins that are usually occupied by obnoxious ads are cropped off.

Colours were nice (IIRC) but not dick melting when compared to a decent, modern IPS/OLED LCD display.

Would i use a CRT monitor for five dollars? Sure why not. Would i use a CRT monitor for $200+ dollars? fuck no. The "CRT is the best display technology evar" meme was relevant in 2009 when a 22" LCD with good colours and a sub 10ms response time was like $600.

This same shit applies to ThinkPads and crusty old IBM keyboards. These products were recommended by neckbeards because they were CHEAP, plentiful and high quality compared to contemporary equivalent products.

I ended up selling my Trinitron to some drooling collectorfag for several hundred dollars. I used that money to buy a Dell 2408WFP for basically nothing. I do not regret this decision at all.

Hi. Haven't given up on this place yet. Everything is temporary anyway. I'm attracted to the idea of working in a team, each of us covering each other, in terms of digging and infosec. I'm working on it slowly. Once I have work my stress level should go down, and I can make more time. I do better under structure, my own too, and if I have a monetary stream I can do more.One of my team members I have history with, this is both a block and a plus. I need strategies to deal with that, so I don't fuck up again. Some others are local, one I don't trust or understand lol, but eventually, we'll parse each other or part ways. There's another programmer in the area that I'm reaching out to.I hope koi doesn't shit this up like the discord, but whatever is in the cards, I guess I'm prepared for the worst.
