ITT: We give each of the challenges a difficulty level (easy, medium, difficult, and Stallman)
I'll start: Unit converter and 15-piece sliding puzzle: Easy
ITT: Most based tech companies.
Need a new ISP. These are my options. What should I go with?
I currently have AT&T, and I hate them so fucking much, they've got to be the worst company in the world.
Time Warner Cable is the fastest on this list, but would I actually ever get that speed? With AT&T, it rarely goes above 1.5 megs down, even though I'm supposed to be getting 15.
ex-twc employee here, IMO they were the best ISP I ever had, kinda bummed charter ate them. if your speeds ever fall below like 80% of your package, call in and bitch, they can't hang up and you'll either get a discount or a tech or disconnected. just pay your bill on time or prepare to be raped by fees.
Hey /g/. I was wondering what email provider/service you guys use? I would like a free email service that allows me to remain somewhat anonymous without needing to enter a secondary email or phone number for verification purposes. I want to simply pick a username and password, and then to be able to send emails. thanks
I pay $10 a month for rackspace e-mail off my domain, if anything breaks e-mailwise I can always call somebody (in comparison to a free service)
What mousepad do you use?
I use a $1 pad with a picture of Marvin Gaye on it. I never understood what the point of the gaymur pads are, but I'm interested in getting one of those 28 inch ones for both my keyboard and mouse.
Just wondering if such a thing exists... I'm currently re-sorting 5 Tb of various data (pictures, videos, documents, backup files, databases, ect...) between 3 different HDD, with a new sorting logic.
So i'm in search of a tool that would "emulate" all the file transfer (and show dir hierarchy as if they were instantaneously done (and maybe check clobbering at this moment)), and once everything is ok i can "push" the changes, and then only it starts moving things for real...
I don't know if i'm clear or not, anyways, ideas ?
Oh, and it can be both Windows or Debian, preference for Windows (more powerful PC).
What inspired me is when you make new partition on disk with gparted or anything like that ; first you list with a nice interface what you want to do and only at the end you write everything down...
if i read this right, you basically want to write your script, and "dry run" the sort / copy?
if so you can use rsync as the copy tool it has a dry run switch (--dry-run)
it can be used in windows inside cygwin
What is the difference between Memristors and Neuromorphic chips?
Memristors, as HP described, are a type of resistive RAM. The structure has an electron vacancy that can be moved around between two elements to represent the state of a bit. They can also be influenced to switch at high speeds and perform logic. In effect, if the fabric were there to support it, you could have a chip with one basic switching structure that functions as permanent storage, memory, logic, and can alter itself on the fly.
By Neuromorphic I can only assume you're referring to IBM's Synapse...

>Vulkan is derived from and built upon components of AMD's Mantle API
No wonder AMD gpus do better with Vulkan.
Nvidia has been thoroughly cucked.
while it's definitely an advantage for AMD, nvidia sucking at parallel compute is nothing new. nobody mined buttcoins with nvidia GPUs for a reason.

If Os X will be released as "operating system that you can install in all the AMD and Intel computers", will Windows die? What about Linux?

What's your favorite VPN, /g/?
I've been using Mullvad lately, because it wasn't super expensive, and it seems pretty fast and good so far.
I'm kinda new to VPNs, I've tried some free ones earlier and one paid service which was awful.
Anyway, post some tips and tricks for using VPNs or just discuss your favorite service in this thread.
What new technology breakthroughs are on the horizons that are as significant as 1968 – Internet, 1973 – Fiber Optics Communication, 1980 – Quantum Computing, 1990 – Cellular communication, 2004 – Genome Mapping, 2010 – Memristor/Neuromorphic chips? Is there anything that we are missing that will create the next set of buzz words for the next decade?
P.S: I feel like Drones, 3d printers, virtual reality, augmented reality, these are all using old technologies that have been repurposed into new devices and not significantly NEW.
As a general resource, you'll see more non consumer oriented tech news here than anywhere else without going to a dedicated industry leaning outlet.
.1v and milliwatt range switching devices is pretty big. We could outpace self heating by such an astounding degree that it would never become relevant in 3D stacked logic, even with 100 billion+ transistors. Optoelectronics for signaling is pretty big, and the implications for it being used to bring logic closer together is pretty immense. Two ICs on a board could essentially function...
