How do I write unit tests? Is the idea just to check all relevant test/edge cases and check if you get the desired outcome?

The gut reaction wants to say that if you can only check cases you know about, which are probably going to pass anyway because you know about them... but I guess the idea is to be able to run the tests so that you know if something fucks it up in the future, not necessarily while you're writing it, yes?

>> No.59044277

>>59044257

You take a function, you feed it a set of inputs, and you check the outputs to ensure that they are what they are supposed to be.

It's simple. You can't expect to cover all cases, yes. However, most software projects will add new test cases whenever they fix a bug.

What the fuck is wrong with the Windows store? I can't get it to download consistently. Or at half my available download speed. I've tried turning the p2p update shit on and off, clearing the catch and running the Windows store repair tool.

It goes 'steady' for a while but always inevitably stalls out and drops down to zero. Downloading a fucking 50GB game is painful enough with my shit internet without me having to click pause and resume every 10min to get it to start again.

Also while I was typing this post the entire download seems to have reset itself. Fantastic. I'm so glad I brought a separate SSD for this piece of shit OS rather than "upgrading".

if you want to disable cpu cores for that boot session, kernel parameter maxcpus

if you want to move tasks to a different cpu: google linux cpu affinity (or taskset)

if you want to "isolate" cpu cores from the rest of the system, look into the kernel parameter isolcpus, however if a process is spawned on a cpu kernel code must also be ran on that core; if you do use isolcpus the 'numactl' command won't work, it's similar to taskset so maybe look into that too

if you just want a lightweight linux distro look into a lightweight linux distro, use a lightweight de/wm (tiling wms work), or don't use x, compile your own kernel removing options you don't want, etc, using "less cpu" is a misnomer, it's using it on something

DNSs will essentially have every single domain-IP link (the size of the map is easily within the storage capacity of a single server) and it can take a while for an IP change or a new link to propagate throughout the system.

Similar to the way IP addresses are routed through the internet, DNS propagation is a huge clusterfuck whose exact mechanisms will change from ISP to ISP and from their ISP to ISP. Each top-level domain (.com, .org, etc) is managed by a specific authority, but how THEY actually delegate the changes is as much a business question as it is a networking question, and ISPs will probably get in contact with a middle-man who manages all the interactions rather than dealing with each top-level domain directly.

All programs are started from a command string and a Window Context at some level, so you shouldn't be afraid to use those.

If you wanted to change it so the program will by default start with a certain command string, I believe the Compability properties of an exe (run as administrator, etc) are stored using the Registry. A little googling shows me in Windows7 it was in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
I'm not sure if it's different for Windows 8+, but a little googling from that launch-point should help some:

Guys, I've been learning HTML-CSS-JS for roughly 2 days so far, and I'm still struggling trying to understand how divs and generally document "structure" works, well maybe not necessarily document structure (because it's rather obvious) but more correct said objects' placement within body section - no clue if that's a good way to call it though. I mean just take a look at the following example - it's taken from one of free templates you can find at w3schools.

I understand that the website is divided into elements, that indicate where certain things such as logo, menu etc. should show up, the problem is that I don't really understand how it's done (I know that it's all about css however I still cannot find any entries regarding positoning in w3 official .css file) and why those divs have some weird classes alligated to them?

depends entirely on the size of the heatsink you put on it

>Does that mean it add something to the USB flash drive? like MBR?

it does, unetbootin adds its own bootloader (or creates a mbr) to the usb and I assume it just chainloads the windows iso off of that

manually writing a bootable windows usb it's a nightmare because at the very least you can't just dd the image to the usb, you need to partition it correctly and copy the files over

if you're making a windows 8/10 usb and you plan to boot it from a uefi motherboard, it should just work once you copy the files over (unless you have a very early uefi motherboard that doesn't handle multiple efi options well, you'd likely know if this was the case), see the uefi option here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/289559/how-can-i-create-a-windows-bootable-usb-stick-using-ubuntu

but if you want to make a windows 7 bootable usb you need a tool like ms-sys to create a mbr and then copy the files over
an example guide would be: https://thornelabs.net/2013/06/10/create-a-bootable-windows-7-usb-drive-in-linux.html

some other guides even suggest installing grub to the usb just to boot windows! an absolutely ridiculous amount of effort just to boot windows

however unetbootin should do this automatically for you, so just use unetbootin for future reference

and for some context: most linux isos tend to have grub on the iso already so they work when written to a cd/dvd or to a usb

to answer an earlier question of yours
>Or does the BIOS handle Optic drive differently regarding booting?

usbs act like hdds on most modern motherboards (usbhdd in bios, just as a hdd on uefi mobos (maybe with a usb: prefix), I don't know why cd/dvds are treated differently

>Why DVD tool?
>I thought Win7 supported burning ISOs.

usually the intel (or amd) chipset provide a limited amount of sata ports, however sometimes motherboard manufacturers add additional sata ports from chipsets provided by 3rd party vendors (marvell is a big one, others may be from asrock or other vendors)

there shouldn't be a difference in performance or how they work but you'd probably want your boot drive and any additional extra drives you can fit connected to the intel chipset, the motherboard might not support booting off of any drives connected to the marvel chipset

Thanks for the detailed reply.
I think it would be simpler to have an external optic drive in that case then.
Since all ISOs are bootable if you burn it directly.
I thought I might get better speed from booting over optic drive, but the ubuntu wiki claims to have similar speed to USB 2.0 and save a few DVDs in the process.

Wire makes big claims, but there's a vague air of shadiness in the way they've handled things, and the sense that they're in way over their heads. It's like they're making the No Mans Sky of secure chat programs.

Their code is very poorly written from a security stand point, which would probably be acceptable for your average offline program, but is the exact opposite of what you want on something that's responsible for permanently securing your messages against future attacks. They also send plain text passwords to the server, rely on poorly chosen protocols, include closed source dependencies, and their "end-to-end, encrypted, open source" desktop application downloads most of the code it uses on the fly as a webapp every time it launches

This. A computer will and should use RAM that it has (though you can tweak settings to disable this). At worst it'll sent things you didn't want to the paging file (i.e. make it slightly slower to load when you alt-tab back to it).

The only way the negotiation could be intercepted, modified, and retransmitted would be with a publicly signed certificate. Their voice and video chat is still end-to-end encrypted. Let’s say for example that the government (or someone else) could get a signed certificate for Wire’s domain. There is absolutely nothing the client could do to trust it. The only way to prevent it is with certificate pinning.

I don’t think you explained this too well. The session negotiation is already encrypted to and from the server. There is no way to “encrypt” on top of this without an out-of-band key negotiation, in which itself can be compromised just like the DTLS is now. All voice traffic is still end-to-end encrypted, but there is still a point of trust in the system. In this case, it is the publicly signed certificate fronting their http traffic.

Imagine the scenario of end-to-end encrypted text messaging (WhatsApp, iMessage, etc). There is still a central server with all of the public keys of the other people. When you send a message, you encrypt it using their public key and only they can decrypt it. If the WhatsApp or iMessage server’s database was changed to use a different public key, you would be encrypting the message for someone else. There is always a point of trust in any security system.

That actually wasn't one of the points I addressed, but it is also concerning. In order for voice and video to be truly "end-to-end encrypted", wire themselves have to be unable to do a man in the middle attack. Otherwise you're just trusting an operator the same as you would with facebook or any other service. There's no system, as with Signal, to share locally generated keys manually or use oral key verification. The system is just designed to trust the Wire servers, which makes their E2EE claims technically true but effectively worthless.

Which is great if you're someone who wants to run their own server. Might eventually make a good alternative to mumble or XMPP. But it still doesn't solve their own fundamental problem. Whatever code they claim to run on their server, we have no way of verifying. The whole basis of their claim is that two clients can communicate without having to trust the server in between.

yea, 2 has the first campaign in it

i haven't personally played 1, but from what i understand 2 has everything 1 does anyway

kind of like unreal tournament 2003 and 2004, 2004 just has the same but with extras as well (i actually bought both of those, though)
