    Keep in mind that the lawsuit was entered in germany, and I don't think german law works that way.

    Well.. java code really shouldn't be part of a graphics driver. Not sure why Michael actually seems concerned though; we all know that the mesa devs aren't stupid.

    It absolutely is. My current work project builds with -std=c++11, because the default compilers of the current ubuntu LTS releases don't support c++14 yet, but we use make_unique. (That's right, on a...

    The same arguments have been brought forth by wine devs when the d3d9 tracker was started, along with the intention not to merge it because it couldn't be used on Mac or non-mesa drivers. It's not...

    This just in: bug in ancient glibc version found. Due to misinformation, much panic ensues, but in the end nobody cares.

    Funny enough, unison is the name of an awesome bidirectional file synchronizer.


    rsync is only useful for synchronization when you have a "master" copy and a "clone".

    Sure, but then you don't want a relational database with iterator-based operators, you'll need something that implements batch processing. Take a look at column stores. I'm not aware of any running...

    We have a winner.

    In many types of queries, compiling GPU kernels and routing data through your GPU only serves to slow things down even further. GPU accelerated query processing (or even FPGA...

    Here's proof that the CPU's internal RNG cannot be trusted. I've compared the random numbers from this SD card with the random numbers from my CPU.
