@haiku ... and I'm just getting started on the optimizations: for instance, merged last night is a patch that will improve inode write performance by a minimum of 10x-20x (on HDDs) and potentially up to *200x* (on SSDs)!

It used to be like this everywhere, but now only on @haiku : a list of all running processes with none (including the web browser and window server!) using over 65MB of RAM. (And launch_daemon's RAM usage is in the hundreds of KB!!)

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

In 1996, Amazon.com was a small company with a simple dream: to make money any time anybody does anything, ever.

PSA: Most XHCI (USB 3.0+) issues in @haiku have been resolved over the previous month! Grab a new nightly build and try it out. haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as GNU/Linux is in fact GNU/Linux/systemd/xorg/KDE/Gnome/xfce/fluxbox/tmux/Mozilla/chromium/dillo/lynx/vim/emacs/mutt/alpine/vlc/mplayer/cmus/abiword/libreoffice/gimp/inkscape/blender/python/perl/ruby/lua/erlang/git/mercurial/bzr/subversion/mysql/postgresql/sqlite/festival/pidgin/...

:flan_set_fire:

matrix has a gazillion flaws in it involving trusting remote data to maintain the distributed state underlying their DAG. when I say incompetent design by incompetent devs I am quite serious.

If you didn't yet know, Google is datamining GMail etc for purchase confirmation emails amongst other things and aggregating it for their own purposes in an extremely detailed way.

(Everything you purchased with order ids, detailed billing details, VAT, including subscriptions etc)

Do not believe a single word about how this information is kept private. There is zero reason to build a system to aggregate this and then not use it to make money out of.

Incredibly cursed error message that I just got on a work PC trying to launch Task Manager:

"Too many files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of the FILES command in your Config.sys file."

...now, that message is pretty cursed on its own (Task Manager is not 16-bit and should not be affected by 16-bit open files limitations), but this is 64-bit Windows 10.

Which doesn't even support 16-bit applications.

well, fuck, Australia passed the encryption bill. I guess I'm getting off FastMail first thing in the morning and then auditing all of my systems to make sure there's nothing from Australia anywhere.

this also effectively means I can never safely visit until it's gone, or I can theoretically be compromised at any point while I'm there.

Seriously, WTF? This has to be intentional. You don't "accidentally" write code that removes unknown partitions, reformats them and uses them for temporary space. The solution of using a separate hard drive? I don't think it will last, as this is clearly intentional. This is an attempt at intentionally destroying installations of other OSes on the same machine.

attention to people dual booting windows 10 with linux: windows 10 is doing a fun thing where if windows update needs more room for said updates, it will *delete other partitions on the hard drive*
