not sure about text (I've heard this is possible), but it 100% can do the first.

it won't do audio crossfading to avoid clicks at the join points, but many other video editors don't do this as well. if you care for audio quality, you'll have some hard time searching.

Here's the stuff you're probably most interested in:

>Linux and Windows Desktop or Server are the most common choices that our respondents say they have done development work for this year.

>Different types of developers apply different sets of priorities when considering jobs. Developers who belong to gender minorities in tech rank the company culture and office environment as their highest concern when assessing a new job. The gender identification question allowed respondents to select all that apply.

>gender related questions in a survey about software development

why did you let this happen /tech/?



I let it happen because it doesn't affect me.



I am so sorry for letting that happen. I should have had bought all the companies in Silicon Valley and forbid them from making gender related questions.

A few years ago, I was really enthusiastic about OpenCL and it seemed like everyone else on the internet was as well. What happened? I started looking around the other day for some introductory documentation and the most recent stuff I could find was from ~2013. I'm really regretting not learning it now. Is OpenCL dead? Has Nvidia completely fucked us?



It would probably be replaced by Vulkan compute.

I can't even move to Linux.

Since I don't want to deal with any trouble because.

I end up in windows after some minutes.

last time I tried mint. And my cintiq worked out out the box.

Not as a fucking joystick like previous times in other distros.

but the moment I switched to Nvidia's driver. my 1st monitor doesn't let me change resolution. I Know randr doesn't work and the other shit I've read either.

fug me 1024x768 instead of 1600x900 killed me.

I just don't want to learn how to linux in day one.

this is an unfair test


Just adding to the discussion: they will use AV1 to kill .jpeg .jpg .png .gif



PNG is here to stay. but it's no big deal, it's lossless and supports most of the useful color spaces, bit depths, etc.

for others, it would be a good riddance. also, fuck webp, it's a stupid format.

The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.24.0. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

This release contains two very exciting new features: rustfmt and incremental compilation!

For years now, we’ve wanted a tool that automatically can reformat your Rust code to some sort of “standard style.” With this release, we’re happy to announce that a preview of rustfmt can be used with 1.24 stable.

Back in September of 2016 (!!!), we blogged about Incremental Compilation. While that post goes into the details, the idea is basically this: when you’re working on a project, you often compile it, then change something small, then compile again. Historically, the compiler has compiled your entire project, no matter how little you’ve changed the code. The idea with incremental compilation is that you only need to compile the code you’ve actually changed, which means that that second build is faster.

As of Rust 1.24, this is now turned on by default. This means that your builds should get faster! Don’t forget about cargo check when trying to get the lowest possible build times.

This is still not the end story for compiler performance generally, nor incremental compilation specifically. We have a lot more work planned in the future. For example, another change related to performance hit stable this release: codegen-units is now set to 16 by default. One small note about this change: it makes builds faster, but makes the final binary a bit slower. For maximum speed, setting codegen-units to 1 in your Cargo.toml is needed to eke out every last drop of performance.

>Yeah I'll just say trivializing the idea of violation doesn't seem like a great way to ask for help.

>I understand it's a conversation you don't want to have and that's fair, so no response needed. I'll just say that I disagree. From the title and you're description of "My keyboard is wet with tears." it seems like the general intention was "futures has cause me real pain and anguish". Given that, I have a hard time seeing any of those points except #3 being applicable. #1 and #2 are really "rules were broken" and that isn't generally something I'd expect to cause tears.



>>language development falls apart because leads dont agree on "figures of speech", "opinions", "quality control" and "standards" with low level devs who do all the work

> 1366x768

Is this actually usable with such small terminals? I figured that people who use tiling WM's would probably have a big monitor. I also have a craptop and just run a big xterm with screen or tmux. The later can even split a window into panes, if needed.


Motif/CDE is the sexiest. I even use a Solaris GTK2 theme for that yellow/purple/gray godness.

You. You refuse to invest your development time into writing the software you want to see.

tl;dr for Beginners

>decentralized P2P network

>like torrenting, but instead of getting a .torrent file or magnet link that shares a pre-set group of files, you get a hash of the files which is searched for in the network and served automatically

>you can add files to the entire network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface

How it Works

When you add a file, the files are cryptographically hashed and a merkle tree is created. These hashes are announced by the IPFS client to the nodes in the network. (The IPFS team often describes the network as a "Merkle forest.") Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users share the same file then both of them can seed it to a third person reqPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What is cohesion in operating systems? If you say the Unix philosophy, your opinion is invalid.



idk I suppose that it uses some function that tor deactivates for security reasons.

OpenBSD is a meme.


default FS doesn't even support SSD TRIM, and I don't think OpenBSD supports anything modern like ZFS or BTRFS.


"Only two remote holes in the default install!!!!!!!"


I hope you realize that this literally only applies to a base system install with absolutely no packages added. In other words, not exactly representative or meaningful towards... anything really


A few years ago, OpenBSD was actually in danger of shutting down because they couldn't keep the fucking lights on. How could anyone see this as a system they could rely on, when it could be in danger of ending at any time?


"B-But OpenBSD is written in strictly standards-compliant C! Clearly that's better than muh GNU virus!"

So you're not allowed to create extensions to the standard? You should only implement the standard and nothing more? Keep in mind that this is nothing like EEE, as the GNU extensions are Free Software, with freely available source code, as opposed to proprietary shite. People should be allowed to innovate and improve things.

If you're gonna be anal about standards-compliance, then why let people make their own implementations anyway? Why not have the standards organizations make one C implementation and force everyone to use it?

Then don't buy it?



What I do is irrelevant, the reality is that plenty do and thus make freedom respecting hardware unviable.









did you even read the post I was replying to?

this isn't about "muh feminizts". I hate them too, but that's not even what this was about.


OpenBSD is a networking powerhouse, it is developed by people who use it in their jobs.

OpenSSH, LibreSSL, OpenIKED, pf, OpenSMTPD, OpenBGPD and dozens of other tools OpenBSD provide in base are easy to use because they're made by people who actually use it!

Systemd made a resolved and it sucked, uni students or development by committee make abortions of software, feel like OpenBSD doesn't have a feature you want? Submit a patch.

Long live OpenBSD!

Is "community" a place like their forums or do they also consider the stuff they host for their clients as part of their community?


<No fun allowed

<forums are srs business


Are you going to make a thread for every project with a coc?



Seems to be just their forums.

I still wouldn't recommend you post your kiddy porn on a VM there.



Since they sneak these without anyone knowing, a quickly forgotten thread isn't that bad.
