    Whoever paint jets for Cathay Pacific: they stopped giving F's at all...

    In sadder AV-geek news, the 737 MAX Death is still not flying the first A380 in commercial service has already been scrapped. Noone wants to buy that extremely expensive fat bird second hand :/
    Still, tearing down one of those it's not just "take a hacksaw and a wrecking ball and call it a day" - no sir, those guys needed about ONE YEAR just to broke down one of those down to the naked frame!

    That was quite surprising when I first saw it.

    Played it a bit and while the jump physics/controls are not the best it's still extremely impressive on a technical level, even more impressive considering it's a homebrew game since the SNES has never been known afaik, for its strong homebrew library.

    Has science gone too far? Is this article real or fake?

    Colleges are turning students’ phones into surveillance machines, tracking the locations of hundreds of thousands

    Syracuse University is among the dozens of schools in the United States that use tracking systems to monitor students' academic performance, analyze their conduct or assess their mental health. (Carolyn Thompson/AP)

    By Drew Harwell

    When Syracuse University freshmen walk into professor Jeff Rubin’s Introduction to Information Technologies class, seven small Bluetooth beacons hidden around the Grant Auditorium lecture hall connect with an app on their smartphones and boost their “attendance points.”

    And when they skip class? The SpotterEDU app sees that, too, logging their absence into a campus database that tracks them over time and can sink their grade. It also alerts Rubin, who later contacts students to ask where they’ve been. His 340-person lecture has never been so full.



    I will give it to them, it's rare that I have genuinely felt a sense of nausea at reading something on the Internet. Well done, guys.

    I wonder how long until it becomes compulsory?

    It's sickening on several levels. Of course there is the visceral part, but when you think about it, what does it really entail?

    “These administrators have made a justification for surveilling a student population because it serves their interests, in terms of the scholarships that come out of their budget, the reputation of their programs, the statistics for the school,” said Kyle M. L. Jones, an Indiana University assistant professor who researches student privacy.

    ...

    She said she worries about school-performance data being used as part of a “cradle-to-grave profile” trailing students as they graduate and pursue their careers. She also questions how all this digital nudging can affect students’ daily lives.

    They're a bloody college. How do they not already have enough "school-performance data"? Since when were grades not sufficient information to go on?

    It is one of those things you never speak about.

    So this guy captured himself playing Synth Rider. Which is a synthwave pseudo-80s-styled VR music game.
    ...
    And he decided to go all-out and dress the part of an 80s rocker, and do some 80s-style music video editing of himself lip-syncing along and playing air guitar.

    I can't decide if it is genius or insanity, but I respect the effort made. The video is presented as a work of art.

    Youtube has disabled the ability to edit video descriptions by clicking them while viewing your own videos? Now you have to figure out how to get to the video editor, then find the video to edit its description...

    Yep, old UI > new UI. Did they ever restore the ability to middle-click notifications to open them in a new tab in the new UI?

    An interesting article of why beancounters often mean doom for engineering-based enterprises.

    I think there's a far simpler explanation, Occam's razor and all.
    An ambitious program of cost-cutting, outsourcing, and digitalization had already begun.


    What's the expression in English? Wise for a penny, stupid for a pound?

    Basically, the issue is that outsourcing is a chimera. You hire "engineers," which aren't actually engineers but do have the requisite degrees for the bean-counters. They then hazard that even if they're less competent, since they're much cheaper, it will work out. On paper, it seems reasonable: 100 "engineers" each working at 0.1x the wage and being 70% less competent should be a net gain if they replace 20 engineers demanding six figures and health insurance.

    This strategy yields short-term returns, then collapses horribly after a few years. The 'why' is left as an exercise for the reader.

    (A similar pattern may be observed with regime shifts in some countries, for just the same reason)

    The Intel i7 920 CPU can outperform a Ryzen 3700X when playing a N64 song via the 64th Note plugin with the "Use Recompiler CPU" option turned off (so it uses the Interpreter CPU instead). With the Ryzen 3700X it pegs a single core to 100% utilization and suffers nasty audio stalls and crackle while I believe the i7 920 hovered around 60-80% utilization for most songs (music from some games did max it out though).

    Using the recompiler results in CPU usage dropping to 2~% on the Ryzen.

    Don't even bother to disable the recompiler options, that's a horrible idea. It's also not a fair benchmark, as it uses some really poorly optimized C code for everything. If you want to make it worse, make the RSP interpreter mode as well, that has at least a 4x slowdown effect compared to the recompiler.

    For instance, Echo Marches from Blast Corps, using foo_input_usf, with HLE audio and resampling to 44100Hz, with 3 decoding passes:

    Total length: 24:06.069
    Opening time: 0:00.176
    Decoding time: 0:22.622
    63.427x realtime

    That works out to about 1.58% of a single core, or 0.0988 % of the total CPU if you're using Windows or a similar task manager.

    That's a Ryzen 7 2700.

    The only way the 920 could outperform the 3700x is if the code was targeted to that architecture or it’s doing cpu detection and using a fast path. There’s that cpuid thing with old games only checking the low nibble of the processor generation, too.

    It's a really crappy interpreter, emulating a 90MHz RISC processor. The other interpreter case, which compounds the slowness, is emulating a 60MHz RISC processor with vector math instructions, using conventional floating point math in C instead.

    But yeah, I doubt that 920 is actually outperforming the 3700X. It's probably an unfair workload.

    Probably not a good comparison, since these jokers already knock off any comparison >8 threads as "extra" information and not part of the base comparison.

    https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-920-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-3700X/1981vs4043

    This says the 3700X should be 103% better at single core tasks.
