DaemonFCIt doesn't even matter if you said it at work or on company time or in your work uniform or not.Jun 20 00:19

schestowitzthey say the first coup often failsJun 20 00:23
DaemonFCIt was only hours old and the only reason it went on that long is because the sitting president was in the White House laughing about it and refusing to call in law enforcement.Jun 20 00:23

DaemonFCHad they gone with the intent of Congress and the meaning of the word "state" to be "a state government in the United States", then the federal government could have oeprated marketplaces in those states that chose not to operate one, but they couldn't have paid out subsidies.Jun 20 05:21
DaemonFCIt seems to me to be fairly bizarre that, essentially, what Texas was saying was, "Please tax our residents and then don't give them any help buying health insurance.", but it seems that what they wanted was a follow up of "And now we're being harmed because we're paying taxes and not benefiting from this law.".Jun 20 05:22
DaemonFCThey desperately want standing to sue, they can't get it because they're not being treated any differently by the law's formula than any other state, so they had to bootstrap some demonstrable harm.Jun 20 05:22

DaemonFCTrying to beat a warrant is like when you're a kid and your parents are coming to give you the belt, so you hide in a bush, and you might buy yourself a few minutes, but they'll get you.Jun 20 06:09

DaemonFCI was reading about Phil Katz, the guy who wrote PKZip.Jun 20 06:13
DaemonFCThey had a bunch of warrants and failure to appear citations on him. So he pretty much went underground and started running the company by email, in the 90s.Jun 20 06:13

activelowsecond) i do not know what algorithm you compiled and what the problem was, otherwise tcc/pcc output was shown to be almost on par with gccJun 20 17:32
XRevan86Languages with LLVM JIT execute the algorithm faster than tcc.Jun 20 17:32
activelowdon't doubt thatJun 20 17:33
XRevan86activelow: I can give you all the details if ye want. But I think that they don't really matter with a difference this big.Jun 20 17:33
activelowsure it is relevant XRevan86, what the tradeoffs areJun 20 17:33
activelowin any case you won't convince me anymore either gcc or llvm/clang were "free"Jun 20 17:34
activelowadd to this i would check if an SIMD optimization was involved with yor tests XRevan86 Jun 20 17:36
XRevan86activelow: I don't see any optimisation options in tinyccJun 20 17:36
activelowif there was then your test had shown that SIMD optimisation was superior to none applied, which says little to nothing about the qualities of tinycc since it doesn't do SIMD optimisation to my knowledgeJun 20 17:37
XRevan86activelow: The test tests array and loop optimisations.Jun 20 17:38
activelowtinycc doesn't heavily optimise, hence it is more suitable for JIT compilation which was demonstrated with linux 2.6 kernel, to compile that during system bootJun 20 17:39
activelowquicklyJun 20 17:39
XRevan86activelow: Pretty sure that's not the only optimisation that tinycc is lacking.Jun 20 17:39
XRevan86activelow: LLVM can JIT faster.Jun 20 17:39
activelowi had seen other bug reports with tinycc too recentlyJun 20 17:40
XRevan86JS outperforms this C.Jun 20 17:40
XRevan86Heck, bcc 5.2 in Wine outperforms it.Jun 20 17:43
activelowwhich says little to nothing about the qualities of pcc/tccJun 20 17:44
activelowbesides there is other options than the ones mentioned, and i doubt i would get far with any of them and linux kernelJun 20 17:44
activelowdidn't say either gcc or llvm/clang and their optimisations were lacking, i said linux kernel and free software ecosystem locked-in to them, vendor lock-inJun 20 17:45
XRevan86When it's two compilers instead of one, it's already a big difference.Jun 20 17:46
XRevan86activelow: ze codeJun 20 17:51
-TechrightsBot-tr/ | Debian PastezoneJun 20 17:51
activelowthanks XRevan86, yet i feel i lack competene to discuss your implementation of the algorithm and optimisations appliedJun 20 17:52
XRevan86There's a special version of one bit for GCC, it was just observed to work faster on it.Jun 20 17:54
activelowi do notice aggressive optimizations were applied with your scenario (Ofast and lto)Jun 20 17:54
XRevan86The best output there could possible be.Jun 20 17:55
XRevan86gcc -O0 and tcc give very similiar results.Jun 20 17:56
activelowbesides the optimisations do increase compilation time and compile time memory consumption excessivelyJun 20 17:56
XRevan86"excessively" is definitely not the right word here.Jun 20 17:56
activelowwhich i could report a minor story about too, since i utilise some low-power aarch64 SBC here as distcc build nodes, some of which have 1GiB of RAM "only"Jun 20 17:57
activelowguess what happens when g++ spawns four compilation threads? OOM.Jun 20 17:57
XRevan86activelow: Consider -O0Jun 20 18:01
XRevan86should be great %)Jun 20 18:01
activelowi considered blacklisting cxx, with gentoo that is use.mask cxx and this problem is gone at leastJun 20 18:02
activelowyet with this i had noticed again another lock-in, cxx itself since gcc cannot bootstrap itself without cxx (had to verify again)Jun 20 18:02
XRevan86GCC is written in C++Jun 20 18:04
activelowat least i succeeded already with a bootable system without any cxx involved anymore to proceed with an alternative compiler and removing gcc (or llvm/clang)Jun 20 18:05
XRevan86activelow: gcc -O0 executes faster than tcc for me.Jun 20 18:05
XRevan86activelow: That sure sounds productive.Jun 20 18:05
*activelow sighsJun 20 18:06
activelowyes, most of the time is wasted to track dependencies, remove bloatware, which I hope can be mitigated by use.mask cxx some time in the futureJun 20 18:06
XRevan86I sure hope that Open Watcom can satisfy all your C needs.Jun 20 18:08

XRevan86activelow: Ye hadn't known about Turbo C++ before?Jun 20 18:35
XRevan86but it is indeed surprising that this old compiler managed to produce an okay result.Jun 20 18:37
activelowexceptional even, since the tradeof too is compilation time and memory consumptionJun 20 18:38

DaemonFCApparently there's five Sears Towers worth of vacant office space in Chicago as of late March and they were expecting it to get much worse by the end of the year even if the lockdown completely ended.Jun 20 23:05
DaemonFCThey're still building though.Jun 20 23:05
DaemonFCSoon there will be 23 million square feet of empty offices, and that's just inside the city. Meanwhile, the Democrats managed to get gas in the city up to $4 a gallon.Jun 20 23:06

DaemonFCRelatively speaking, Waukegan has held on better than Chicago or its inner suburbs.Jun 20 23:15
DaemonFCI have no idea why. Possibly because it's more of a working class city to begin with.Jun 20 23:16
DaemonFCIt's the wealthy inner suburbs to the north of the city that appear to have really had their asses handed to them.Jun 20 23:16
DaemonFCSome can barely give away storefronts in their "town centers" next to the metra line.Jun 20 23:17
DaemonFCThat used to be prime real estate.Jun 20 23:17
DaemonFCWinnetka, I think it was, looked so bad, that about three things survived. Jewel-Osco, a Walgreens, and Starbucks. 70% or so vacant.Jun 20 23:18
DaemonFCschestowitz, Uber and Lyft won't last much longer.Jun 20 23:25
DaemonFCThey're 2-3x as expensive as a cab is now.Jun 20 23:26
DaemonFCI kept flipping between them to get that last 5 miles to the zoo and first Lyft told me there was a "wait and save" option where if I waited 20 minutes instead of 10 I'd save $4, so I was like yeah okay.Jun 20 23:27
DaemonFCI waited 30 minutes, nothing came, and I had to cancel it (they reversed the charge).Jun 20 23:27
DaemonFCThen Uber was going up and down. It got up as high as $45 and then went down to $28.Jun 20 23:27
DaemonFCOn the way back, I used the Transit app to find out that taking the 73 CTA bus between the Metra Clybourn stop and the zoo only costs us $2.50 apiece.Jun 20 23:28
DaemonFCWell, at least I'll know that next time.Jun 20 23:28
DaemonFCTurns out, the news in Chicago interviewed a woman who said she was furious about how expensive Uber has been lately and that she couldn't afford $25 a ride for what had been $12-13.Jun 20 23:29
DaemonFCSo we're going to be witnessing the end of that bubble shortly.Jun 20 23:29
DaemonFCschestowitz, That's one Chicago tax I really do agree with, and I think RMS proposed it too.Jun 20 23:30
DaemonFCUber and Lyft had been dumping their service in areas with good public transit in order to degrade them.Jun 20 23:31
DaemonFCSo the city responded by doing a rideshare surcharge. So you fund the CTA when you get on an Uber even if you don't use the CTA.Jun 20 23:31
