    Sauron reacted to TempestCatto in Google is being sued over abusing its monopoly of online ads   
    Why did it take till now...

    Sauron reacted to Master Disaster in CDPR admit they have no special deal in place with retailers for Cyberpunk refunds   
    So your essentially saying its the customers fault that CDPR lied to them and sold them a thoroughly broken product then? That its OK for a business to lie in order to rip off its customers because the customer wasn't smart enough to catch them out?
     
    Hate to break it to you but what CDPR did here is illegal pretty much everywhere, When a customer buys a product there is a reasonable expectation that the seller hasn't lied to them about the product and that the product will work,

    Sauron got a reaction from paddy-stone in UK politicians call for "making the resale of goods purchased using an automated bot an illegal activity"   
    I would just make purchases through bots illegal, might as well go straight to the source... it's much harder to prove that any given graphics card was bought through a bot and therefore can't be resold as opposed to proving that at least one card was bought that way.

    Sauron got a reaction from FAZIN in UK politicians call for "making the resale of goods purchased using an automated bot an illegal activity"   
    Let me explain this in simple terms: if there are 10 apples and 15 people want an apple, but I buy 9 of them before anyone else gets to because I used a bot, then 8 people will be needlessly left without an apple or will be forced to pay an inflated price and buy one from me. If I hadn't done that then more people would have been able to get the apple they wanted.

    Sauron got a reaction from Beskamir in EU plans to give users the ability to customize algorithm's or opt out of them.   
    I'm afraid this would turn into the same situation as GDPR where you either accept everything or have to go through a needlessly complex system to manually check out of everything individually

    It's especially funny that they're just doing this at their office

    I can see the warning point hammer off in the distance

    Sauron reacted to minibois in Regex to match "/" (Perl, but applies to all languages)   
    You need to "escape" the forward slash, this is typically done by placing a backwards slash (\) before the character you want to escape.

    Sauron reacted to HarryNyquist in US Sen Thom Tillis Scary Internet Streaming Bill targets all streaming content   
    Yeah "just" having a felony on record. I too would like to never have a paying job again or be able to vote or have freedom of movement because I accidentally heard 5 seconds of a Pink Floyd song in an ad on YouTube.
     
    Felonies are absolutely not a joke or something to "just" have.

    Sauron got a reaction from StDragon in US Sen Thom Tillis Scary Internet Streaming Bill targets all streaming content   
    This makes it a felony. That means you could go to jail over it and also that the state itself could go after you rather than require the actual copyright holder to sue you in a civil court.

    Sauron reacted to zhnu in Python Machine Learning   
    Mmm you're confusing several things, start here:
    https://www.w3schools.com/python/python_ml_getting_started.asp
    I know, I know but if you're teacher ain't great you must start somewhere and that's a good place as any other.
    To your left you have the libs mostly used numpy for example read at least what they do, then as you can see the tuto starts with simple math concepts. Just start like any new skill it'll take time.

    Sauron got a reaction from DededeKirby in Playing Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t going well for last gen console owners   
    Last gen struggled with 1080p 60 even at launch...
     
    still, a few more months in the oven wouldn't have hurt cyberpunk.
     
    Also maybe don't sell it for those consoles if it's not going to run well...? It's a bit of a scam if it's unplayable and it's extra work for already overworked employees.

    Sauron reacted to Electronics Wizardy in HPE Gen9 with asus hyper m.2 x16 card v2   
    you need pcie bifurcation support not nvme support. For non boot drives, nvme will work on any pcie device. I have used nvme drives on a pentium 4 with the stock bios without issues.
     
    Pcie bifurcation lets you splite the x16 into 4 x4 lanes and it might be be enabled or supported. What model of server do you have OP?
