  1. No, I can't rule that out. I don't remember now whether I also got the pop-up at the bottom of the page or not, so there is a chance I assumed the top notification was behind the "1" count.
  2. Browser, version and OS: Vivaldi, Windows 10 Steps to reproduce/what were you doing before it happened? Logging in, I guess. What happened? Received a notification I had already received and read (so it should not appear as new), and (at least one) posts I did yesterday were gone. Notifications associated to said post(s) were also gone. What did you expect to happen? The post to be there, and notifications only showing up if new and not read Link to a page where it happened, if applicable: Just the home page. Scre
  3. Seems like copy-pasted from previous legislation and regulations, probably themselves copy-pasted from even older regulation... I guess it begs the question: who thought it would be a good idea to write specific software names in a law that is meant to outlast several generations of software and industry changes? Then again, one can understand while sometimes norms want to give explicit examples of instances it applies to. Still... (worth noting: as an example of functionality, it's perfectly possible to use dead software, as long as it still helps to understand the behavior e
  4. Yeah, the bottom table is confusing. But in your case it won't matter anyways. It would seem that your second PCIe M.2 drive would disable the x4 slot (the "other" long PCIe slot, labeled PCIe_3, not the one for your GPU).
  5. Well, I don't see that getting triggered by the size of either b or g, but you are initializing index as zero? So the first comparison in your highest score loops compares the first element to "element 0" of each vector? With respect to the error itself, I'm not as familiar with C, although it somewhat resembles the messages I would sometimes get in Fortran dealing with assumed types/sizes. I'm afraid I can't be of much help.
  6. If and when that happens, it'll be a problem for the GPUs available then. It's not like "the future" means "in two months".
  7. Someone please mark this as the correct answer, because it 100% is. ¡Que la inocencia les valga!
  8. I find it funny when Generation iPhone accuse the people who had to understand how computer works in order to use them of being "tech illiterate" It reminds me of when the generation that fixed their own (CRT) TVs was told "kids are smarter than ever!" because 4-year olds could handle a remote control
  9. Ask the authors of the benchmark. They seem like nice and friendly people...
  10. Why? Video playback is going to account for most of the battery usage, even more so in the 20-minute runs. For audio testing, why not playing music files with screens off? Sure, it's going to take much longer to make a dent in the battery, but that's the point: if you can't see a significant change in battery, one that allows you to detect differences across devices, in 20 minutes of pure audio, then what you are capturing with the 20-minute video is just margin of error of video playback. If not, then running pure audio, screen off, should be feasible. On the contrary, this was
  11. Same applied to a large portion of Earth itself. We worked our way around it. The task ahead is much bigger, but so are our resourced and the time scale involved. No we can't. Earth has a finite life. Sure, it still potentially has hundreds of millions of years to go (not necessarily in a life-friendly state, though), but it will amount to nothing if we don't make any progress because "it's wasteful". There's a lot of time (hopefully, we could still nuke ourselves goodbye tomorrow) but also a lot to do. The point remains: nothing you said makes your priorities obje
  12. Spending billions to improve the lives of those right here on this planet seems like a fat waste of a billion dollars that could have been used to send humans to other planets and eventually settle elsewhere in the universe. It all depends on your subjective ranking of priorities.
  13. So? You're not renting nor buying the car in this discussion, only a particular feature, an add-on. That add-on is the equivalent of the house, not the car. Well, I can see a very real harm to Tesla's bottom line.
  14. Fight inflation? I don't think you've been paying attention to the economic situation in the US No it doesn't. Spending money doesn't "take it out of the system", it only takes it out of your pocket, but puts it into someone else's. That's true whether you buy groceries, precious metals, or snake oil.
  15. To put things in perspective, the US has 330 million people, 80 grownups. If basically everyone gets a check, it's $198 billion in total. Since not literally everyone will get it, we could reduce it to adults only (then again, there are dependent benefits. But to get a lower bound, since 100% of the population is an upper bound), that would amount to $154 billion. Rounding again, we're in the ballpark of 20% of the bill going directly to households pockets. That's just to get a sense of the proportions, I'll leave it to you and everyone else to decide whether that's a reasonable al
  16. For the same reason you can't deduct rent payments from the price of a house. If you have a lease contract with a residual purchase value, sure, but the monthly fee will reflect that. But what you are proposing is basically buying something in installments while reserving the right to give it back at any point, and immediately be discharged of any remaining payment. Every renter would be an owner in a finite number of months. That is not the why they'll introduce a subscription model. The goal is for you to pay forever.
  17. I never found those programs to make much of a difference, but I don't know Does he use it?
  18. I don't think it should. There could be some difference in packet loss between the two computers, but half the speed seems too much of a difference to explain that way. I'm out of ideas, but let's hope someone else brings some fresh ones.
  19. Can you check the link speed through the "Network and Sharing Center", to make sure both are 1Gb/s? It could be an issue with auto-negotiation, with each of your NICs agreeing to a different speed with your router.
