Okay so I was trying to fix my PC but I'll skip past the details, eventually found out it was a case issue, but in the process of trying to diagnose issues I ended up removing 3/4 of my ram sticks. 1 was locked in place by cpu cooler so didn't get that far. Anyway, I got my PC running once again but only if I don't have those other three ram sticks in. I can't figure out how to get it back how it was. If I try to put the three sticks back in the PC just turns on and then turns off. I don't remember what order they were in before but they are all from the same set so it shouldn't matter right? I tried inspecting them for damage from removing/installing them but the sticks all look fine, and I can't see any obvious damage to the ram ports. Is there a special way to get 4 channel ram working that I've messed up by booting the PC with only one stick in it?

Sorry I know you guys deal with more complicated stuff than this usually but I don't really know who else to ask. Thanks!

Never mind, I got it eventually, just needed to try insert a few more times.

Well apperently the retards at duckduckgo.com refused to update their v2 address in time for the new year, meaning, now their onion doesn't work. I'm quite upset by this. Anyone serious about privacy would have had to updated a long time ago. Are their any other search engines like duckduckgo with an onion domain?

Based self hoster. If you don't mind sharing some info: How much does running an instance like this cost you? Are you running any other services? I've been thinking about getting myself a VPS (perhaps splitting the cost, responsibilities and access with some comrades) to do things like this and would like to hear from more experienced people.

There is a widespread belief that people have "learning styles", like verbal, visual, auditory, etc., and they learn better when instructed in this "style". But the styles are ill-defined, self-reporting by students is unreliable and tests to determine them are contradictor. Moreover, experiments failed to find any benefit from instructional material tailored to specific learning styles, meaning that supposed "audiovisual learners" did not have any disadvantage from learning texts compared to students of the other "styles" and so on.

 No.10467

>>10464
>>10466
The entire debate is flawed IMHO, learning styles probably aren't about learning performance rather then about how much stress somebody experiences during learning. I want to see a long term study about how learning styles affect stress levels. People that get too much stress during learning tend to drop out. So the study should also compare the drop out rates of students with learning styles.

You have to pay attention that nasty cultural battles can ensue, where one subculture tries to cause another subculture somatic stress by changing institutional designs.

It is not flawed, the study addresses the claims of proponents of "learning styles" and not some random hypothesis that you have just made up on the spot.

By the way, competition and retention rates has always been terrible on MOOCs.

Friendly reminder that flash is gonna be dead in less than a month and alongside it a large chunk of the old internet in the form of flash animations and games,Because the software is old and full of so many security flaws that Adobe just can't be arsed to fix it anymore at this point so they're just ending support altogether.

What does /tech/ think of this? Is it a good riddance?

Flash was shit, even when I was a kid, and don't get me started on the programming language it used that was completely reworked with every new edition.

>US national security agencies issued a joint statement Wednesday acknowledging a "significant and ongoing hacking campaign" that's affecting the federal government. It's still unclear how many agencies are affected or what information hackers might have stolen so far, but by all accounts the malware is extremely powerful. According to analysis by Microsoft and security firm FireEye, both of which were also infected with the malware, it gives hackers broad reach into impacted systems.
>On Thursday, Politico reported that systems at the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration were also affected. Also on Thursday, Microsoft said it had identified more than 40 customers that were targeted in the hack. More information is likely to emerge about the hack and its aftermath.

Seven hundred million lines of code written over a period of thirteen years. That's how large the CIA's Marble framework was at the time of its 2017 Wikileaks "Vault7" exposure. At Bill Binney's estimate of $50 per line, that's a $35 billion program.

Ever since learning this I have been attempting to find programs of a similar size. The Linux kernel is currently roughly 27.8 million LOC. Windows Vista was 50 million LOC. Mac OS X v10.4 was 85 million LOC. Supposedly some "high-end" proprietary car software is at the 100 million LOC range. And according to many sources, the entirety of Google internet services is 2 billion lines of codes–but I don't think that really counts because it's hardly a discrete piece of software.

So is the Marble framework one of the largest pieces of software ever created? Is there nothing else that compares?

 No.6230

is LoC really sound metric to use for measuring size of a project? Language like C can really blow up when you attempt to replicate object oriented programming concepts (systemd code base is verbose not bloat IMO). I don't know anything about proprietary car software but if they are one of those real-time control things that needs to be written in assembly or very low level constructs, they will also blow up in terms of LoC.

if there is a way to measure information density of a program by complexity of feature and then combine it with number of features, that will be really cool application of information theory.

 No.6231

>>6230
well OK then I'm just counting number of instructions of binary but there could be a way to measure this in more abstract ways through flow analysis or something
