    Nicholatian reacted to Commodus in UK Parliamentary Committee Recommends Levy on Social Media to Defend Against Fake News   
    Actually, Robinson was imprisoned for contempt of court, not exposing the gangs; they were already in the public spotlight.  He's also been convicted of fraud, illegally entering the US (ironic given his ideology), assault, threats... basically, he's the sort who knowingly flouts the law and then feigns outrage when the government actually enforces the law.

    UK is leaving the EU in a couple of months. Nobody in the EU cares what they think anymore. The EU has it's problems but come on this is just hate. You could have easily blamed China or the US for this, would have maid as much sense

    Right, it's an ideological position. No matter how he defends himself, you will not be satisfied unless he submits to the ideology you're presenting here, because that's what ideologues do. Really not a good direction for discussion bro.

    You never explained why this is a bad thing in the first place, and now you're condemning people for resisting your narrative when they're not even opposed to what you're saying.
     
    This is a matter of fact. It's market statistics, the ever-unpredictable economic system that drives the world, and Apple's market cap reaching one trillion dollars has no inherent meaning unless you want to inject ideology into the discussion. People aren't going to have a good time with that.

    Yeah, that's the vicious thing about an ideological approach: nothing has no ideological bearing, even though this is handily falsifiable. You cannot consider the possibility that someone doesn't give a shit to the colossal scale that you do about matters that none of us can change or do anything about.

    Right, I forgot how no one -- not the average individual and certainly no companies, takes advantage of tax loopholes.

    A company doesn't need hundreds of products. In fact it's disadvantageous. Apple offers products in each category at the upper end of the market and doesn't bother offering a budget option nor do they flood the market with hundreds of models for absolutely no point. 
     
    The fact that they don't have hundreds of models is completely irrelevant to everything.

    Hopefully this means that I will be able to use ÅÄÖ in powershell scripts. You can already do this by manually specifying the unicode character, but simply writing ä is quite a lot more convenient than writing 0x00E4.
     
    It makes me sad to see a forum which claims to be full of "computer enthusiasts" have so many people who proudly say they don't use CLI.
     
     
    If you're going to be pedantic, then there are several shells for GNU/Linux, like Zsh.
     
     
    if you're just using CLI to open a program then you're doing it wrong.
    It's for doing tasks quickly. Instead of digging through 5 menus to find a specific button, a simple flag could do the same thing in many cases.
     
    But the biggest benefit is scripting.
    Want to rename 1000 files in a folder to a specific pattern? Rather than manually going through each and every one, clicking on it, selecting rename, and manually writing in the new name, a simple script could do the same thing in 5 seconds.

    Our company’s game engine has some components that would benefit greatly from a Windows terminal experience closer to feature parity with every other OS around, but this news is so mind-blowingly vague that I doubt much will change at all.
     
    Unicode is already supported, including UTF-8, since almost forever ago, so idk what they’re referring to when they say they’re adding this because it’s already there, chcp 65001 and boom. It’s not the default, but if that’s all they’re actually changing then that’s downright disappointing and definitely not a feature coming as advertised.
     
    With Microsoft talking about a newfangled API for all of this, I suspect they’ll be introducing something outside Win32 entirely. If that’s the case, consider this whole endeavour DOA and wipe the board. If they need developers to meet them where their new APIs are, they can forget about it, because most developers of console apps have either long since moved on or are still using the Win32 APIs because that’s all there is.
     
    That said, I’m still hopeful that they can clarify and change my outlook on this. As it is right now, PowerShell is great for our CLI programs and our only complaints are kinks between PS and the ol’ CMD when using UTF-8 and ANSI escape codes.

    Nicholatian reacted to asus killer in [Update] Google to be fined 5 billion dollars by the EU for breaching Antitrust laws   
    i'm glad, Google is an abuser. It destroys any attempt of competition. Screw Google. I really wish some European companies would come up with alternatives to Google, android and windows. The US is terrible at defending competition.
     
    EU did the same for Microsoft when they almost tried to make their shitty browsers the think by force. Thank god that didn't worked out for them.

    Nicholatian got a reaction from Nup in Guido van Rossum to step down as Benevolent Dictator for Life of Python   
    Dutch programmer Guido van Rossum, best known as the creator and Benevolent Dictator for Life of the Python programming language, has announced that he will be stepping down from his position in the Python developer core. This announcement was made on the Python-Committers mailing list: Source
    This is very interesting, if a bit disheartening for me. As a software engineer I've always held him in very high esteem, along with Ken, Ritchie and Bjarney, as the industry pioneers they are. I don't know much about the climate surrounding Python, but given his fair-weather tenure at Google that didn't last, I'd make a guess that he's really just getting too old to have the patience to put up with people who are by virtue of the industry invariably insane. The stakes involved in work often drive people up a wall, workplace toxicity has cascading effects, and it's just something that's permeating work culture in general, at least with programming. At his age I wouldn't be surprised to see him laying down arms for that, and I lose no respect for him because of it. It's good he's making the healthier choice.

    Nicholatian got a reaction from Hewie in An unRAID dream build, Hetepsenusret   
    This is something that I've been wanting to build for a long time, going back years and years to the days when hexa-cores were highly sought-after in the HEDT space. One day my husband and I were discussing what we could buy this year besides vacations and he picked my brain about unRAID and the proof-of-concept Linus did to make it such a success, and we decided to put something together that would "do it all", for so much more than gaming.
     
    Henen-nesw is my personal build, and while it's nice, it's in a very limited form factor and I'm insistent on keeping it 100% passively cooled, preferably without moving parts. He has a gaming laptop but it's over 4 years old, and besides that there's nothing besides our ultrabooks to show for computing. Our server, Bahariya, sits in a datacentre in France, and while it does great for server stuff we want to build something that's close enough to run HDMI to and fro. unRAID makes that practical for both of us at once.
     
    The PCPartPicker build list can be found here: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/nicholatianfury/saved/fDHLrH
     
    So far, we've purchased the CPU, one of the GPUs, the boot SSD, and the case. The former three of these things arrived today, and the case should arrive tomorrow with photos from me, although I don't know if I'll be able to convince my husband to let me completely unwrap the case! He's pretty iffy about unboxing stuff for the sake of possible eBay flipping and returns, but I'll see what I can do to convince him.
     
    Here's the SSD:
    The GPU:
    And the Threadripper:
    I'll try to take future photos with our Handycam instead, since it's more easily controllable and I can hopefully avoid the terrible graininess you see in the SSD pic taken with "superior auto". Stay tuned!
