MooseBoys,

Not really a problem with UDP itself, but with some very old protocols like DNS that rely on UDP but can’t be changed because of compatibility. If you’re writing a new service that uses UDP, there’s nothing stopping you from designing it so that it doesn’t provide an opportunity for bandwidth amplification.

MooseBoys,

Not quite; movie’s only 35 years old. First colonoscopy is recommended at age 45.

MooseBoys,

I find it ironic that Linus’s explanation for ENOENT being invalid for an ioctl given its meaning of “No such file or directory”, while simultaneously ioctl can return ENOTTY when using a mismatched device fd despite the error meaning “Not a typewriter.”

MooseBoys,

The fact that most universities will graduate CS majors without ever teaching them how to use a debugger, build system, or version control system shows how useful they are to actual engineering work.

MooseBoys,

Right? Most of the time when I build linux I’m not using GNU because of its burdensome license. Realistically you usually don’t need most of the binaries anyway, and those you do like echo and ls are trivial to reimplement, at least for their common functionality.

MooseBoys,

Honestly by the time I decide to retire an old machine, it’s because I’ve developed so much animosity towards it that I’m much more likely to have an attitude of “good riddance” than “farewell old friend”.

MooseBoys,

I don’t understand how this is getting approved.

Because you get promoted for changing things, not for keeping things the same. Almost every change like this is motivated by someone trying to get promoted.

MooseBoys,

synchronous gig

I think you mean “symmetrical”

MooseBoys,

lawbreaking while driving is widespread on American streets to a level so extreme…

Is this not the case everywhere? If anything, speeding, distracted driving, and running stop signs / ignoring traffic signals is much more common in other parts of the world.

MooseBoys,

There’s also no reason for a game to inadvertently trigger it. All games should clear the SKF_HOTKEYACTIVE flag on launch to disable the feature trigger during gameplay. Unreal, Unity, and most other engines do this by default.

MooseBoys,

ich_lel on the front page - time for bed!

MooseBoys,

DoD spending was $1.8 trillion in 2023, of which $700B was “discretionary” spending. Medicare and medicaid spending was $1.6 trillion, of which $0 was discretionary.

MooseBoys,

I wouldn’t interpret 7 inches as the amount of a gap you can cross - I would interpret it as literally translating your body 7 inches in one direction. Unless you can fit your body between two planes 7 inches apart, you’re not going to be teleporting through any barriers.

MooseBoys,

transfer of matter or energy from one point to another without traversing the physical space between them

Right. So stand one inch in front of a piece of glass. Your nose teleports 7” forward and is now 6” behind the glass. All good. Your tongue teleports 7” forward and is now 5” behind the glass. Still good. Your cheeks teleport 7” forward and are now 4” behind the glass… Your ears teleport 7” forward and are now 3” behind the glass… Your spine teleports 7” forward and is now just barely behind the glass… Your shoulder blades teleport 7” forward and are now still in front of the glass. Your ass cheeks teleport 7” forward and are still well in front of the glass. You now have a plane of glass running through the entire length of your body, bisecting your ass, spine, shoulder blades, and the back of your head. The effect of this bisection is left as an exercise for the reader’s imagination.

Christopher Nolan Says Buy ‘Oppenheimer’ on Blu-ray ‘So No Evil Streaming Service Can Come Steal It From You’: ‘We Put a Lot of Care’ Into Home Release (variety.com)

Christopher Nolan took a playful swipe at streaming while introducing a Los Angeles screening of “Oppenheimer” that was devoted to spotlighting the film’s craft. Crew members reunited for the event Monday evening, billed as “The Story of Our Time: The Making of ‘Oppenheimer.'” The director said a lot of time and...

MooseBoys,

Absolutely nothing; got my wires crossed.

MooseBoys,

I thought Fight Club was a boxing movie and had no interest in seeing it. I only saw it because I tried downloading Jackass on Kazaa and it ended up being Fight Club. The intro had me hooked.

MooseBoys,

Deplorable (adjective): Dishonorable or deserving of strong condemnation.

Vermin (noun): Noxious or disgusting wild animals that are difficult to control.

GTA 6’s Publisher Says Video Games Should Theoretically Be Priced At Dollars Per Hour (www.forbes.com)

While Take-Two is riding high on their announcement that a GTA 6 trailer is coming, its CEO has some…interesting ideas on how much video games could cost, part of a contingent of executives that believe games are underpriced, given their cost, length or some combination of the two.

MooseBoys,

Unpopular opinion - I completely agree. In terms of cost per entertainment-hour, video games are by far the best value compared to similar media.

MooseBoys,

Is boot time that much of an issue besides for arbitrary competitive reasons? I haven’t tried any optimizations and boot time on my headless server is less than two seconds.

MooseBoys,

I tried Android with the S10 for a little over a year. It felt too clunky and everything I wanted to customize would have required jailbreaking, which feels too much like work for me. I went back to iPhone after that.
