Search - "ppc"
Today I made this:
a crypto price alert page that plays. you suffer - napalm death
like the gilfoyle one.
with the intention to add PPC (PiedPiperCoin) to the list of currencies.
but CORS & the missing https for piedpiper.com stopped me. :-(
Few days ago a PPC campaign manager complained to me that the banners she got from her client were in an "unusual file format". Asked me to check it out because she couldn't open the file and she really needed the banners.
I kid you not, it had a .rar extension...
She, at the age of 30, had no idea what WinRar was...2
So, the future of Apple is ARM, huh? So people are gonna have to maintain, like, SEVEN toolchains for Mac? What, we've got one or two for Mac OS <10.0, 2 PPC OSX chains that are version-dependent, 2 x86 version-dependent x86, Catalina x86 and now Catalina ARM too?
(These are to memory, if i'm wrong please correct me.)27
This rant can basically be boiled down to the name of the software in use/question:
FileMaker Pro 8.5
Please chime in if you have ever had the privelege of working with this gem of a database program, especially the scripting capabilities...
Trying to make it print/save/export an individual PDF file into a folder specified/created by one field with the filename set from another field. Will probably get it to work but the drag and drop scripting style reminds me of setting up an autoclicker for runescape; so fricken painful. Love to hear your comments.
Also happens to be running on an ancient PPC G5 iMac with 1 Gig of RAM running 10.4.11 hidden in the back room of an old warehouse with extra creepy flickering lights...
EFFF EMMM ELLL
So yeah thats my rainy Friday rant, hope you all are having this much fun.5
A manager just walked in and asked us to stop advertising a for hire advertisement for one of our stores... Okay no big deal right?
Yeah accept he followed up by asking if we could run an ad that told people that we have hired someone now.
Wouldn't that be like a hotel buying advertising that says they no longer have vacancy?1
N64 emulation possible on Nintendo hardware? Are you SUUUUUUURE???
According to GBATemp:
CPU: Single-core PPC, 729MHz
GPU: 243 MHz single-core
Possible? Yes (always full-speed)
CPUs: 2, Quad-core ARM11 (804MHz), Single-core ARM9 (134MHz)
GPU: 268MHz single-core
CPU: Octa-core (2x Quad-core ARMv8 equivalent), 1.02GHz
GPU: 307.2MHz-768MHz (max. 384MHz when undocked)
Possible? Barely (5FPS or less constant, only half the instruction set possible to implement)
this all makes total fucking sense7
I recently met with a client (a UK-focused homewares company sold by the likes of Next etc) who were meeting with Amazon the next day . Amazon has told them that people search for their name every 6 mins on Amazon. This according to my calculation is c. 7200 searches a month. There are 8,100 searches monthly globally on Google for their brand name according to Google Keyword Planner - suggesting that Amazon is close to becoming the major search destination for shopping (if it isn't already!) in the UK.2
So my previous rant was about a 13-year-old PC with a ton of dust... It is a 2004 PowerMac G5 1.8GHz, and I recently installed a flavor of debian on it called Lubuntu, so now I actually use it. It currently has 750mb of ram but I found a max upgrade (4x1gb) on eBay and that's in the mail.
Once that comes in I'll have an ok-ish machine but I'll have nothing to use it for.
So what can I use it for? I open to suggestions.8
Hate when people talk about or trying to recruit somebody who knows well PPC and they *don't* mean PowerPC. I almost got convinced that the architecture is rising from the ashes and it's just stupid marketers reusing well known abbreviations.
this is stupid, Apple didn't kill x86 with PPC, and they'll not do the same with ARM. (ARM is cheaper, but it's not really more powerful yet. You can't do a bunch of one-opcode stuff on ARM yet, it needs to mature further. ARM'd also need massive retooling for cards and such and back-compat is gonna be hell.)23
I have an issue that I just can't shake and wondered if anyone had any insight.
I'm currently working for a company that is going through a ruff patch when it comes to google rankings dropping off.
I'm the developer who is rebuilding his sites, I've told him that his site is very flat as in no content and he need to start writing articles within his industry.
No buying strength at all just a catalogue of products categorised.
But the guy doesn't get it and insists in spending money on PPC Google shopping which gets him a 83% bounce rate.
I keep going on and on at him how he is doing to much advertising and not enough content marketing but he just doesn't get it.
What would you do ?.1
Hello Everyone, As of now one of my friends wants to create awareness for their services in paid campaigns with regional wise. I am suggesting him to ask our query to here but some of the reason they can't be registered. So I have put some query on behalf of his. He wants to promote this service https://digiorbite.com/services/... So what they actually do go with the paid campaign or doing proper optimization according to google guidelines?
