Looks like public moaning and shaming worked: there are hints that Intel will disable Hyperthreading in future processors.
Federation support is pretty much finished, however I have decided that other features need to be completed before that gets released.
I have not pushed any commits in weeks and I have set a deadline of July 17th to give myself plenty of time to finish these important features.
This will also give me some time to respond to Github issues, PRs and community feedback before I release all the updates!
There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...
Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.
First world problem: Subscribing to too many mailing lists and being annoyed at all the email.
A non-technical friend today said he didn't realize websites were more than just static files being served up. They told me this through a Facebook Messenger modal on the Facebook site, while they were scrolling through their timeline, which loaded more content as they scroll.
I'm not sharing this to shame them, but all of y'all who need to know, this is how many of our peers understand technology and that they have no interest in wanting to learn more. You need to be okay with that.
If you use the Instagram app, what features are must-haves for a replacement? What doesn't work about the Instagram app that I can address?
There's a "temporary" fix in UFS that turns 26 years old tomorrow 🎉
TIL to research first before replacing hardware. :/
hi all, here's a reminder that your experience on the fediverse is largely based on the people you choose to surround yourself with, and no one instance or software can change that.
have a great day and a great life. i love you,
Oh and I’m email@example.com but you know that already
Thank you #OpenBSD for disabling HyperThreading on Intel. I could not agree more.
HyperThreading was a mis-guided attempt at improving performance of Java threads by copying the SPARC processors without having the SPARC architecture… as usual with these marketing-driven issues it is coming back to bite Intel (and us…).
I never, literally never, ran a piece of code benefitting from HyperThreading nor ever heard anyone brag about it.
