    squirrl reacted to Moonzy in How do pc gamers seamlessly switch headsets while still playing their game ?   
    some apps/games actually lock onto the device that is active on windows it when it starts running, but change to another active device when previous active device is unplugged, and not switch back when you plug it in
    maybe you have to change it in game after plugging it in, if it's already running
    or disable other output/input in windows, so it doesnt pick them up

    squirrl got a reaction from vorticalbox in What are some languages that have good multi-core support?   
    Yup sure, you need to tell the program what to do with multiple cores/threads. I was just talking about native language support to actually program it.
     
    Funnily enough discussing this about Node, this PR came in today for adding proper multithreading using workers  :  https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/20876

    squirrl got a reaction from Beskamir in What are some languages that have good multi-core support?   
    Some languages don't - such as node.js. You're right that it's down to the programmer or even devops to implement it by spawning multiple processes though.

    I did that one a few days ago! Took me 2 hours instead of one hour so I don't think it fit's the thread category, unfortunately.

    In order for the system to work at all they already must have some digital representation for each individual store.
     
    As for the impulse buy thing. I know I'd shop at a store I can be in and out of as quick as possible all the time and not shop at their competitors who didn't do that. Not to mention doing that allows higher through put of customers through the store.

    squirrl got a reaction from Cyborgsmith in I was told that 1080p is "unusable" and that anyone who thought it was "has never used a computer for anything but gaming"   
    I would say 2560x1440 at a minimum. I can use lower but the lack of screen real estate is annoying. If it's for any scaled content it depends on the screen size and media. i could probably game or watch films at lower resolutions

    squirrl got a reaction from JAKEBAB in Is honey vegan?   
    So can not being vegan. It's all about getting the right balance of nutrients. Doesn't matter where you get them from.
     
    You have some points but they aren't flawless and I'm gonna get spammed for this.
     
    On the topic of bees, they make honey to feed themselves. In the wild they would make their own hives, and generally, make them the right size that they need, and then fill it with honey.
    Commercially, hives are often greater in size than the bees would usually make them. Therefore they make more honey. In the bigger, higher profit circumstances, all the honey is taken and the bees are just given sugar water. Then you have what you mentioned with the bees getting killed by smoke and general carelessness when pulling apart the hive to extract the honey and extracting the bees that are caught in the harvested honey. This is all for the sake of selling honey, not for the sake using "leftover honey" from bees.
     
    With eggs what you're saying is generally true. You don't have to torture a chicken for it to lay eggs. That's about it though. Chickens often eat their own unfertilised eggs to get back the nutrients lost by laying them. Of course, you also have factory farms where the majority of eggs come from to meet the huge demand. The chickens are given tiny cages which are difficult to even rotate themselves in, and free range hens are outside cages but often crammed inside large barns with still a small amount of room to move (yes, this counts as free range). They often have beaks and wings clipped to stop them scratching themselves and others and are bred to lay as many eggs as possible before they are malnourished, wear out and "expire" or die. Male chickens are mostly useless for egg laying other than fertilisation purposes. In hatcheries, male chickens can't be kept for egg laying, so 99% of them are just ground up after they are hatched. It's likely that a lot of the places that small local farms get their chickens from will be from places such as these hatcheries. These males are not used for "meat" chickens as they are a bred for different purposes. Again, this all done to give people the supply of eggs that are being demanded, and to profit from it and not because people are taking the odd abandoned egg from a wild chicken.
     
    With milk, yeah sometimes, as it is with all mammals, sometimes pregnant females will overproduce milk causing them discomfort. Are we drinking milk because we want to make the cows more comfortable? Of course not. What about all the other animals in the wild that have the same problem? It's said many times but the milk is made to raise the children of the cow as it is with all mammals. To meet the demand for milk, and to make a profit you need to keep those cows making milk by keeping them pregnant. You want the milk to sell so you either take the calf away from the mother (which can cause the mother and child distress) for meat or to sell somewhere else or wean it early and don't let it drink any more milk. Not really mutual benefit is it? 
     
    People can bring these topics up all they want, but it's very unlikely that they're living on some remote farm where all the animals are prancing around open fields happily squirting milk into jugs and firing eggs into baskets ready for them to take home.  Their food will likely come from these factory farms and horrible conditions where animals are pretty much just machines for many reasons including but not limited to:
    1. There's a HUGE demand for animal products so these idyllic conditions are just not sustainable.
    2. There's profit for the farmers
    3. It's cheaper than other things: Meat/milk etc.. is subsidised by the government out of tax money to make it more affordable. That's one of the reasons why a burger can cost $2 when a salad costs $6
     
    Then you have all the other things like (again, not limited to) the deforestation for land, high methane production, huge cesspools of waste from the animals and these waste products and smells travelling in the air through nearby towns/villages.
     
     It's just not nice at all for anyone except those who are ignorant to it.
