lel just noticed a pattern here:
if someone asks newbie questions on devrant about anything - gets shat on
but if that person asks about react - its all roses and rainbows
i say there's a new cult in town and theyre recruiting!13
doing an assignment.
me, thinking to myself: "why the heck everybody pastes over an nginx config when they want to script switching the autoindex on or off?
thats not linux at all you sed the fucker that's how its done...", feeling all smart
> type it
> test it
looking fine, as always. im born for this shit
> run it
i check if i didnt sed any whitespaces, everything seems fine
4 lines below intended target: "locatioff" lmfao3
So, i have that assignment about docker stuff. nifty piece of software i must say.
anyways im installing docker software on windows bc im thinking if i have something that gives me at least the correct structure and some skeletal syntax i will have a faster grasp of the thing. expecting some sort of high level ide but end up instead with what looks like a blank window, with the only obvious choice being sign into some bullshit i dont need. but thats another story
my point is:
when installing the thing it prompted me to install WSL2. which i supposedly am not supposed to have because my cpu doesnt support intel virtualisation. but being impatient (thats why i came to look for an assisted solution), i pursued the installation.
lo and behold: i end up with a shell prompt at the root of a linux filesystem!
i ran 2 or 3 muscle-memory commands and closed the prompt, i was in docker stuff up to the neck.
later on, when i go back to my project, in a virtual machine its sluggish af and screams at me that amd-v is not supported because of something something nested pages (will look up later how that one works).
dont have time to explore it some more yet, and especially experiment or even barely look at this glorious mess because i have something barely working and no time to have it fail.
but this story definitely left me perplexed.
and also : you can run WSL2 on an fx83508
today i had to teach a friend of mine that:
"we don't negotiate with the terrorists from artistic department".
plot twist: i am the artistic department:p2
hey devs, quick question:
does rust support branchless conditionnals and jump tables, and if yes where to look for syntax?
i found no example for branchless so far and jump tables are scary in rust (and i need a library to use them, it seems).
inb4 "why in the hell/ what possible use those have?!":
i use branchless to make a looping array and jump tables whenever there's more than 4 if statements with equal probability, and the deciding factor is a numeric value, so quite often.27
hey frontend devs,
i got a qweshtiun:
how come half of yous communicate in wordsalad?
also: ur methods are functions and ur objects are structures. wth is it all about?14
Today i stumbled on something that piqued my interest, but i couldnt find an answer on google:
intel is throttling MMX instructions on their newer CPU's.
my question is: why?
i didnt find either the response to that question nor even the acknowledgement of that fact, yet...
(the interesting stuff starts at 8.30)16
alrite devs, hardmode:
i have an obfuscation algo that cannot be defeated even by quantum computing (like infinite parralelism if i got that one right [i mean understanding what is Qcompute])
how can i take advantage of it? (get phd/big money payroll/sell it)
it could be implemented as impossible to defeat ssh for instance28
