schestowitz-TRis there a way to speed it up?Nov 05 04:43
schestowitz-TRor to check why it was always so slow?Nov 05 04:43
schestowitz-TRi5Nov 05 04:43
schestowitz-TRshould be a lot fasterNov 05 04:43
DaemonFCA Core i5-7xxx series should be at least as fast as my Core i7-6xxxx.Nov 05 04:43
DaemonFCThe only downside yours would have is no hyperthreading.Nov 05 04:44
DaemonFCBut it would have some other improvements here and there.Nov 05 04:44
schestowitz-TRit says it has 4 coreNov 05 04:44
schestowitz-TRbut feels like oneNov 05 04:44
DaemonFCOh, well, that's weird.Nov 05 04:44
DaemonFCMine is a U, so ULV.Nov 05 04:44
DaemonFCIt's a dual core with hyperthreading.Nov 05 04:44

schestowitz-TRmine you, I'd kick myself if I found out this was possible 2 years laterNov 05 04:45
DaemonFCYou could monitor what frequency the cores are running at.Nov 05 04:45
DaemonFCwatch -n.1 "grep \"^[c]pu MHz\" /proc/cpuinfo"Nov 05 04:45
DaemonFCSee if it stays at its lowest clock speed or close to it. If it does, there's something really wrong.Nov 05 04:46
schestowitz-TRit says 730mhzNov 05 04:46
schestowitz-TRmin 400Nov 05 04:46
schestowitz-TRmax 3100Nov 05 04:46
DaemonFCAnd try running some more demanding stuff.Nov 05 04:46
DaemonFCPlay some videos, open some heavy websites.Nov 05 04:46
DaemonFCSee if it gets up there.Nov 05 04:46
schestowitz-TRif I run find /  then it goes up to 3000Nov 05 04:47
DaemonFCWell, it's scaling then.Nov 05 04:47
schestowitz-TRor 600Nov 05 04:47
DaemonFCTurbo Boost doesn't always work correctly on Linux, but it's kind of a ridiculous thing anyway.Nov 05 04:47
DaemonFCIt's an unsustainable speed. Eventually, it has to lower the clock rate anyway to keep the heat from building up too much.Nov 05 04:48
schestowitz-TRat one point I saw it at 3000+Nov 05 04:48
schestowitz-TRbut then most of the time back to 600Nov 05 04:48
schestowitz-TRmaybe due to I/O being the bottleneck, not CPU capacityNov 05 04:48
DaemonFCWhat kernel are you running?Nov 05 04:48
AdmFubarssd and harddisk?Nov 05 04:48
DaemonFCBecause I saw mine behaving kind of like that until I brought in the backport kernel.Nov 05 04:48
AdmFubarand = orNov 05 04:49
DaemonFCAnd now it stays at higher speeds more often.Nov 05 04:49
DaemonFCThere should be a backports kernel for Debian 10.Nov 05 04:49
schestowitz-TRI'm sure it does not use full capacityNov 05 04:50
DaemonFC5.10.70-1~bpo10+1Nov 05 04:50
schestowitz-TRit was always like thisNov 05 04:50
DaemonFCThat's the kernel from Bullseye.Nov 05 04:50
schestowitz-TReven just booting into KDE takes minutesNov 05 04:50
schestowitz-TRon mine it takes secondsNov 05 04:50
DaemonFCTry backporting the kernel from Bullseye if you haven't already and see what happens.Nov 05 04:50
schestowitz-TRsame OS, same setupNov 05 04:50
DaemonFCIt won't harm anything assuming you install it correctly.Nov 05 04:50
schestowitz-TRit uses 4.19Nov 05 04:51
DaemonFCIf you have it track the metapackage from Backports, it will follow Backports for updates.Nov 05 04:51
DaemonFCYeah, I'm going to go with crummy CPU scaling.Nov 05 04:51
DaemonFCNewer kernels have gotten better.Nov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TRmaybeNov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TRsame kernel version as mineNov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TRI rebooted yesterday after 100 daysNov 05 04:51
DaemonFCI'm on 5.14.9 right now.Nov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TRso I now have the latest kernel chugging aloneNov 05 04:51
DaemonFCI brought it in as soon as it landed.Nov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TR*alongNov 05 04:51
schestowitz-TRanyway, I'll set it aside for nowNov 05 04:52
schestowitz-TRDaemonFC: AdmFubar:  thanks, at least it's up and running againNov 05 04:52
DaemonFCMy laptop is still new enough that it needed some things from the newer kernel to work as it should.Nov 05 04:52
schestowitz-TRI'll assume Intel shitiness is to blame for the performance, maybe some OS upgrade is worth trying?Nov 05 04:52
schestowitz-TRthought it's not likely to accomplish anythingNov 05 04:53
schestowitz-TRsame hardwareNov 05 04:53
DaemonFCI was having less than ideal GPU performance, but 5.10 was new enough to get Debian 11 up and running so I could get the backport kernel.Nov 05 04:53
DaemonFC<schestowitz-TR> I'll assume Intel shitiness is to blame for the performance, maybe some OS upgrade is worth trying?Nov 05 04:53
DaemonFCThey spend years landing optimizations here and there after a significantly new hardware family lands.Nov 05 04:53
DaemonFCIn fact, I still routinely see "SKL+" commits.Nov 05 04:54
DaemonFCI mean, you wouldn't think there'd be all that much to do in the way of optimizations for a 2016 CPU family, but apparently there is.Nov 05 04:54

DaemonFCThe reason states like Indiana don't get crime like this is because if you try it they'll put you in one of their more hellish state prisons.Nov 05 05:15

DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, It's a big enough country that every state has its own character.Nov 05 05:18
DaemonFCSome put up with crime and don't care about punishing it very much and make excuses for why the criminals are really victims if you think about it.Nov 05 05:19
schestowitz-TRbecause people self-select their group/stateNov 05 05:19
DaemonFCThose tend to be Democrats that run those states.Nov 05 05:19
DaemonFCAnd they get a lot of crime because of it.Nov 05 05:19
kingoffranceportland isnt that cold, if it snows one week a year everyone panics for one week.  but if you have money, move out to the coast :)Nov 05 05:19

kingoffrancesomeone said the problem with portland is they arrest all the gangs...then they get out about the same time, so you have 'waves" lolNov 05 05:21

DaemonFCThey used to send CPD in to do "gang busts" and now the cops are too afraid to even do anything now that Lightfoot and Kim Foxx are in office.Nov 05 05:21

DaemonFCAbortion is not something where if it doesn't happen in the next 2 days, it won't be possible.Nov 05 05:28
DaemonFCWhat the Democrats have done won't help more children get abortions, it will allow more sex offenders to pressure them into going into the clinic and then not telling the authorities.Nov 05 05:28

DaemonFC"(Drug dealers) are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty; these types of guys, they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road."Nov 05 05:32

DaemonFCThey're called the Green Party.Nov 05 05:34
DaemonFCIf people want to point out Stallman's flaws, they should point out that every ridiculous far-left thing the Democrats spend a lot of money on knowing it will cause social rot, these people really would commit 100% to.Nov 05 05:35
DaemonFCThe Green Party does want to cut military spending, but instead of paying off the national debt and balancing the budget and growing the economy, they have this idiotic notion that if you just shower people with money created by way of hyperinflation and deficit tripling spending programs, that things will improve.Nov 05 05:37
DaemonFCschestowitz-TR, You mentioned debt. Most people don't know what $30 trillion looks like.Nov 05 05:38
DaemonFCThey don't even know what the $7 trillion the government is now spending per year looks like.Nov 05 05:38
DaemonFCIf you took away all of the money Bill Gates has, you could run the federal government for less than a week.Nov 05 05:39
DaemonFCThen you'd run out, and you'd still have problems. The taxes should be higher on the rich, sure, but it's not enough.Nov 05 05:39
DaemonFCThe government is a money wasting monster operated by tyrants who take people's hopes and dreams away, shit on them, and then toss them into a fire.Nov 05 05:43
DaemonFCI have to do our taxes soon, and it'll be so the government can take what amounts to a fortune from us, but it won't even notice.Nov 05 05:44

schestowitzThe software king has a deal for you.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzIf you're a professor and you mention Microsoft programming tools in a scholarly presentation -- in fact, even if you just use the tools -- Microsoft will send you a check for $200.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzThe company extends the offer on a World-Wide Web page for the "Academic Cooperative," a Nov 05 14:35
schestowitz Microsoft officials say the speakers' bureau, as it is called, is a well-intentioned effort to help faculty members cover their conference costs. Ethics watchdogs call it an unabashed attempt to turn professors into advertisers.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzMicrosoft is "trying to make them advertising agents of their wares," says Albert Borgman, a philosophy professor at the University of Montana at Missoula who has written about technology and its effect on society. "This is going beyond the pale."Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzThat interpretation ruffles Susanne Peterson, who directs the Academic Cooperative. "These people are already talking about Microsoft products," she says. "Sometimes they are not even talking about our tools -- they are just using our tools."Nov 05 14:35
schestowitz"This is very innocent," she says. "Two hundred dollars is puny."Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzBut it's not so puny to professors who "don't get stock options," as one program participant put it.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitz"We're so strapped, we don't look a gift horse in the mouth," says Jesse Heines, a computer-science professor at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell. Mr. Heines, who recently gave a presentation that mentioned Microsoft products, has applied for the $200 payment. He is one of fewer than a dozen professors who have joined the speakers' bureau. Most professors don't know about it.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzA few professors who have sought the company's money agreed to be interviewed. Some have already given their presentations; others have not. All of them said they thanked Microsoft for its support during their presentations -- or that they will do so -- without specifically mentioning the $200.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzThat omission raises questions, says Bill Moninger, a government scientist who has taught courses on technology and ethics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. "Those who, while making their speeches, didn't say, 'I just got $200 for saying that,' are unethical," he declares. Audience members, he says, have the right to know when an apparently independent speaker is being paid to mention a particular company.Nov 05 14:35
schestowitzBut George Whitson, a computer-science professor at the University of Texas at Tyler who has applied for $200 from Microsoft for a presentation next month, defends the speakers' bureau as "more open and honest" than other perks that companies provide to professors use their technology.Nov 05 14:35

DaemonFC"EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Two people were arrested on Thursday after a child was born in a home while the parents were on drugs. Police say the child had not received any medical care and the mother admitted to using drugs while she was pregnant.Nov 05 17:28
DaemonFCDeputies were called Wednesday about a check welfare in the 4500 block of Crestview Drive. The caller said a baby had been born inside a mobile home a few days earlier but had not received any medical care.Nov 05 17:28
DaemonFCWhen deputies arrived, they found a hoarding situation with trash from floor to ceiling and bugs. There was no crib or bassinet for the baby. A glass pipe with burnt residue and a pill bottle with powdered fentanyl and an unused syringe were found. Power had been shut off at the home the day before.Nov 05 17:28
DaemonFCThe baby was taken to the hospital and is now in the care of child protective services. Authorities tested the child and found meth in her system."Nov 05 17:28
DaemonFCYeah, the difference is that in Chicago the cops just stay in the police station and DCFS is also too afraid of getting shot to go check it out.Nov 05 17:29
DaemonFCThe only reason that baby has any chance in Indiana is that the criminals are going for a little trip downstate and the baby is going into a home that's gotta be better than that.Nov 05 17:29
DaemonFCThat Chicago University person that the news interviewed for god only knows what reason, who was stunned that the city was a war zone despite tough gun laws and no gun shops in the city, needs a check up from the neck up.Nov 05 17:30

DaemonFCBut it's not because the government collapsed. It's because it's being ran by people like Lori Lightfoot.Nov 05 17:34
DaemonFCThey should have dealt with those looters severely. Like, told the National Guard "shoot on sight".Nov 05 17:35

DaemonFCAll becuase some shithead that was probably pulling in the government cheese anyway (150% unemployment vs. their last job) wanted whatever he could run off with.Nov 05 17:36
DaemonFCAnd while we have to suffer with thousands and thousands of people like this, I have to, you know, our rent goes up because someone else isn't paying, and I have to turn the heat down and watch our budget, and if we even did qualify for help with something, taking it would ruin our case, so I wouldn't dream of it.Nov 05 17:38

DaemonFCschestowitz, Then I had fucking Samsung pull more shit with that BDC-5500 player.Nov 05 21:32
DaemonFCThey said a Blu Ray player from 2009 couldn't play discs made after 2013, and used that to sell more players, instead of providing them with DRM updates.Nov 05 21:32
activelowwhich is, related to it being bloated by C++; at least cross-compilation support is decent, however many desireable targets are not suitable for GCC anymore because of excess resource requirementsNov 05 21:33
activelowanother such attack is rust/llvm and anything depending on this requires yet another heavyweight bloated compiler and costly hardwareNov 05 21:33
DaemonFCBlu Ray turned out to be such a nasty format that the only reason to buy a player is if you want an upscaling DVD player, because they both cost roughly the same amount of money.Nov 05 21:33

activelowmeaning, librsvg is probably lost to rust already, and with it some svg icons which gnome/gtk depend upon... it's a nasty oneNov 05 21:37
DaemonFCSo he's put himself into irrelevance without even considering, I'm sure, that he's on a platform that nobody except "brands" and politicians even care about.Nov 05 21:37
activelowit's a political strategy behind, because rust attacked Python too, by locking into dev-python/cryptography where it certainly does not belong and has absolutely no benefit eitherNov 05 21:37

DaemonFCAnd now that you have a robot arm doing it, no human will call in sick whenever they feel like goofing off, walk out because $16 an hour for flipping fries isn't enough.Nov 05 22:16
DaemonFCThis automation was possible 15 or 20 years ago, but it's worth it relative to something else, and that something else is when your labor turns on you and demands all sorts of ridiculous things, to where a robot arm that costs $3000 a month to make french fries is now viable.Nov 05 22:17
DaemonFCIf a human costs less than $3,000 a month to make french fries, apparently, then it's more viable to have a job for a human.Nov 05 22:17
DaemonFC$3,000 a month is pay and benefits, and $16 an hour with a benefits package that brings it closer to $20 an hour is $9,680 a month.Nov 05 22:18
DaemonFCBecause there are two shifts with a guy making french fries at that labor rate.Nov 05 22:18
DaemonFCThen you have to consider other variables.Nov 05 22:19
DaemonFCThe government taxes you to make a job for someone. You do not have to pay their social taxes if you have a robot fry cook.Nov 05 22:19
DaemonFCThe government taxes you in case that person becomes unemployed and demands money for up to 6 months while they look for work.Nov 05 22:20
DaemonFCNot an issue with a robot arm.Nov 05 22:20
DaemonFCThe government says you have to pay OSHA fines if the person is a dumb fuck who gets themselves badly hurt while slinging fries.Nov 05 22:20
DaemonFCThe government will also tax you in case they draw worker's comp.Nov 05 22:20
DaemonFCNone of this is an issue with a goddamned robot arm.Nov 05 22:20
DaemonFCSo really the workers are costing White Castle $11,000 a month to make fries. (Or more.) The robot costs $3,000.Nov 05 22:21

DaemonFCHe's not a productive person. He adds costs.Nov 05 23:47
DaemonFCThose costs get pushed to the consumer in the form of high inflation on food so it can go to Gates for doing fuck all.Nov 05 23:48
DaemonFCYes, they do invest in technologies that raise crop yields.Nov 05 23:48
DaemonFCBut those aren't there for you. It's to enrich themselves even further.Nov 05 23:49
DaemonFCThey'll let excess production go to waste before they'll allow prices to come down.Nov 05 23:49
DaemonFCThere are government programs that force the government to buy excess at insanely high prices.Nov 05 23:49
DaemonFCThen the government doesn't want it, so it sends it off to food pantries. Okay, well, at least poor people get something to eat.Nov 05 23:50
DaemonFCBut it's the worst way you could possibly do it.Nov 05 23:50
DaemonFCMeanwhile, Walmart's realized that high meat prices were causing people to wait until the last day to buy it, when it was 50% off.Nov 05 23:50
DaemonFCSo they're doing less generous markdowns now, and if it goes bad, it goes in the trash.Nov 05 23:51

DaemonFCAnd the manager over at the supermarket who put it out in the trash noticed, and he confronted her the next time, and he said. "You know, corporate tells me I'm supposed to pour bleach on this to ruin it so you can't have it.".Nov 05 23:55
DaemonFCIt's worse than putting it in the trash. They're supposed to spoil it with a chemical that would kill you if you ate it!Nov 05 23:56
DaemonFCBut this guy goes, "I'm just going to set this meat here and this bleach over here on that table, and you can just pour the bleach on it and throw it in the trash for me when you're done.".Nov 05 23:57
DaemonFCAnd he winked at her.Nov 05 23:57
