Honestly i have never seen such a bad meta to be a tank in. Blizzard must honestly just hate tank players i cant wait for next patch where they nerf ball again and buff half the dps rooster.
One useful application for Java is the writing of video games. While something like C++ or Rust definitely has pros compared to Java for this, Java is very good at loading 3rd party content at runtime: not only is loading the classes into the JVM quite easy, but Java's OOP model makes it very easy for this code to integrate with what's already there. No compiled language (that I've looked into) comes close on how well it can handle this point. In Java, though, there's a potentially fatal flaw: GC pauses. Since 3rd party code is involved, it isn't feasible to severely restrict object allocations, so the GC is going to be under non-trivial load, but in prototypes of this program when this non-trivial load happens there are constant tiny pauses, so the game does not run smoothly (120+fps looks like 30fps due to this issue). I've tried switching GCs around, and using the new Shanendoh GC or ZGC helps somewhat, but not enough — it still doesn't look like 60fps when running at 60fps vsync. Is this something that can be fixed in Java, or do I need to choose a different language (at least for the rendering loop, which can then be integrated via JNI)?
I'm a requestor working on an idea for a study that would involve neurocognitive testing. A colleague of mine has used Inquisit for similar projects, but I've heard that workers tend not to like doing HITS that involve this software.
Can anyone (workers or requestors) tell me about their experience with Inquisit, what makes that experience good or bad, and are there any requestors who can suggest alternatives to Inquisit I can consider looking into?
Whenever I lose power the people across the street still have theirs because we are on different transformers or something. Last night when the power went out it was out as far as I could see from my house. For just a split second I thought "omg what if they are right". I came to my senses and yelled to my mom (my liberal Q hating mom) "hey, ma, it's the 10 days of darkness!" I could practically hear her eye roll in the dark. Lol. Power came back on 5 minutes later.
Be careful out there, guys. You are absorbing a lot of garbage. I didn't realize I apparently have this tiny tiny tiny tiny bit of "what if" in there. I'm going to take a news break for a while and let my mom keep me up to date.
What the title says. I was literally refreshing the page since 11:55 AM ET and as soon as the clock hit 12 PM the note on their product page changes to " We’re restocking our shelves. This item will be back at
3:00 PM ET. ".
This is absolutely infuriating. Even bots cannot deplete a decent amount of inventory so fast. This is absolutely dumb.
