    Interesting. I had no idea. I just know that all of my friends left MySpace because the user interface was horrid and if you opened friend's pages into six tabs you got six songs playing at once.

    I don't mind jumping around so much, it's fun for me. At home I'm running Ubuntu and Fedora, and for a while I ran Void (a niche distribution with its own package management system). No big deal. ...

    Thanks for the update. I hadn't realized that. Cool.

    I'm surprised but pleased that Knoppix is still alive and kicking. The problem is that I think it makes the most sense to become...

    Sir, this is the internet. Throwing poo is the most popular activity. Well, that and adult content. :D

    More seriously, I agree with your point that it's good Facebook is doing this.

    From the job posting, "Our goal over the next few years is for the Linux kernel network stack to rival or exceed that of FreeBSD." That seems to indicate that at least someone with some clout at...

    Be fair - everything that killed MySpace had to do with the user interface and the auto-play audio feature, and very little to do with Windows. Linux or FreeBSD would not have saved them from their...

    If you read the article I linked, it states that the Linux kernel epoll supports one update per call. If 100 sockets get new data, then you have to call epoll 100 times to get all of the sockets...

    This is the internet, man. Tribalism always trumps logic. :)

    This article seems to back up your argument, though I only skimmed it:...

    To me, a basic test as to whether a programming language is too verbose to be fun to use is whether it makes sense to script the build system in the language itself. Ant and Maven are clunky, but...

    That's an interesting suggestion. I've read some interesting articles asserting that Perl6 is the biggest reason Perl's popularity is in decline: a lot of individuals and companies postponed new...

    I like how you think, thanks for the useful information and the laughs.

    A house is a bit harder to hide, though.
  12. I don't understand exactly what you mean by...

    I don't understand exactly what you mean by "legally reachable", but I have bank accounts, a home, and vehicles, so as far as I am aware I definitely do have assets they can pursue.


    Excellent...

    That's fine advice for people tech-savvy enough to visit Phoronix forums, but your average person can't manage that. Relatives of mine who were not as good at internet anonymity got hit with...

    That looks really, really cool. I never put the time into learning graphic design or aesthetics, so like many server back-end developers my attempts at pretty visuals are awful. But I'm going to...

    Obviously cmr~ knows Rust way, way, way way better than I do, but to add to what he said - my understanding is that the entire reason Mozilla developers created the language was for an equivalent or...

    Thanks for the information. I hope Mozilla in general, and Rust and Servo in particular do well.
  17. I thought the same thing. Cool. One thing...

    I thought the same thing. Cool.

    One thing that surprised me about Mozilla and Rust - the flagship Rust project is the "Servo" browser. The last time I tried to compile it, it involved tons of C...

    D1.0 was created by Walter Bright, who wrote a working commercial C++ compiler but didn't have a formal computer science education. D2.0, which is the current version, was mostly designed by Andrei...

    Wow, that is a tremendous improvement. Cool.

    If you posted it in the video I missed it - what video card and driver are you using? (If you do not wish to publish that, it's fine. I am just...

    Huh. Funny that Microsoft would be so inconsistent. Maybe the other school was paying them a big support contract and yours was not.
