>purely functional dictionaries are typically 10x slower than a decent hash table
>most functional programming languages (OCaml, Haskell, Scala) are incapable of expressing a fast generic mutable hash table because they lack the killer combo of: reified generics, value types and a fast GC write barrier
>if you want a shared mutable collection such as an in-memory database then there is no efficient purely functional solution
>Compare Prim’s algorithm in 12 lines of Python with Prim’s algorithm in 20 lines of Haskell. And why does the Haskell use Prim’s algorithm? Probably because Kruskal’s algorithm is built upon the union-find collection and there is no known efficient purely functional union-find collection
>For years the functional programming community brandished beautifully short implementations of the Sieve of Eratosthenes and Quicksort algorithms. These were even taught to students for years. Only many years later did it emerge that their solutions did not implement those algorithms. Melissa O’Neill even published a paper correcting the Sieve of Eratosthenes in Haskell. In particular, her genuine sieve requires 100x more code than the original Haskell. Same for quicksort where Haskell’s elegant two-line sort is over 1,000x slower than Sedgewick’s Quicksort in C because the Haskell deep copies lists over and over again, completely blowing the asymptotic IO complexity of Hoare original algorithm
>one implementation is bad therefore the language is inherently slow
Any news on a gtx 1060, or should I just pick up an rx480 when it's released?
Did nvidia finally fix async?
Anyone own a Dell S2716DG? I have IPS 24in 1080p displays currently at home but have a 144hz monitor at work, and now can't enjoy 60hz at all.
Thoughts from those that have it?

I'm trying to get a particularly shitty device online and have come across an interesting problem. When loading a web page in elinks the CPU usage pegs at 100% for about 55 seconds during which time I can't do anything. However if I download the page with curl or wget then view the downloaded page in elinks I can have the page up in less than 10 seconds including typing commands and the processor never goes past 60% usage. Is the problem here that elinks is just incredibly inefficient or is there some thing else going on here?
Also, what's the shittiest...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That could be it. I forgot I had another browser (retawq) installed so I tried to load a page in that and it loaded almost instantly with CPU usage going just barely over 60%.
That looks like shit.
From what I understand binary blobs are parts of code which cannot be read, and you are not really sure what they do. They could for example extract what you are doing on your computer and send this information somewhere.
Is this possible and if so is there ways to safe-guard oneself against this?
I'm considering buying a used work station on eBay and adding a graphics card for gaming and work purposes.
You can get shit like
>3GHz Xenon Processors
>12+ GB of ram
>1TB + hard drive
for around $150 or even below a lot of the time.
The thing is that most of them don't come with a good graphics card.
So which graphics card nowadays will run most games?
Which would be better to spend money on in general?
an i5 with 16 gigs of ram
an i7 with 8 gigs of ram

I seriously hope you guys don't do this.
Whats the fastest browser for android phones?
HOLY SHIT WHAT???
What the fuck
What the actual fuck
Not even a mortgage there was this article going around showing how women's code was more likely to be accepted in online communities and these faggots come saying the opposite now?
Holy fucking shit
I was expecting a rational article on how there are much less % of women studying programming or something like that, and instead I got my junkies rustled
What the fuck seriously

>Pyra prototypes still not ready to ship
>GPD Win closing in, Japan crowdfunding underway
>PocketChip shipping this month
pyra is garbage to be honest my family
overpriced, looks like a literal brick, underpowered and only appeals to the minority on the aspect of muh freedoms
gpd win is a better option for specs to cost, nothing says you cant install gentoo on it
pocketchip is going to be for those who wanted a rpi0 but cant figure out what to do with it to make it a mobile shitposting device
>nothing says you cant install gentoo on it
You really can't.
>No radio driver
>no touchscreen driver

>bootloader likely locked (as it is on almost all baytrail tablets)

What's the best fitness app for a calories burned estimate based on heart rate? Rather than buy a band and then use only it apps it's compatible with, I'm working backwards. Choose the app, then select a suitable band/device.
My activity: stationary exercise bike every day. So GPS tracking n miles n shit doesnt matter. Only calories burned going by heart rate.
Pic related - it would be great because it'll be cheap, but I don't want to buy it if won't not compatible with the best system for my purpose.
> thinking the 250 calories you'll burn on that bike means anything in the grand scheme of losing weight
Download a calorie tracking app and control your diet, OP. Your meme watch won't save you.
Your assumptions are wrong. I've already started, I've been doing 1 hour on the bike every day for 12 months. Lost 32 lbs of fat. I'm at my target weight and am now only looking to maintain.
BTW, I'm disabled, with a genetic muscular but have still managed to do this. I have more willpower and pain endurance than you will ever develop. But thanks for your great advice anyway.
