Ils ont réussi à casser z-library ou quoi ?

44. Past the age of 40, vision tends to decline at a steady pace. mine certainly has. Us old people can’t really deal with font sizes much below 14pt- which tends to look large and goofy to younger folk. whatever size you choose or however you set up your grid, please gracefully permit users to override your choice, and ideally design and code your thing to not break when this is done. this isn’t just politeness, it’s the law in USA, the UK and Australia, along with the rest of WCAG 2.0

Bonjour Pappers, on vous aime d'amour<3

Je crois que ça va me manquer un peu de vivre au milieu des bambous...

Décidément, cette administration Biden est chouette :

"Today the @WhiteHouse
announced that all federally funded research will be made openly available. Importantly, it eliminates the 12-month embargo. This is the result of decades of work by @SPARC_NA
, @petersuber
, @mbeisen
, and so many more. "

Toutes les tensions au sujet de l'approvisionnement énergétique ne justifieraient elle pas qu'on nationalise tous les fournisseurs de gaz et d'électricité et qu'on les réintègre à GDF et EDF ?

Bonjour le fediverse !

Du 25 au 30 septembre prochain, sous condition d'avoir mes congés, j'aimerai organiser pour CinqAns et moi un petit séjour à Paris.

Objectifs classiques pour son âge : Cité des Sciences et parc de la Villette, tour Eiffel 🗼, muséum d'histoire naturelle, la grève nationale du 29 septembre 🧨, etc.

Je sais que c'est en demander beaucoup, histoire de limiter le budget, certains d'entre-vous pourraient-ils nous héberger dans cette période là ? 😘

Boosts bienvenus.

Bonjour le fediverse. Après une reprise en douceur en télétravail hier, je retourne au bureau aujourd'hui. Il a fallu remettre un jean 😅 . Mais ça va, il fait froid aujourd'hui.

Bonjour Fediverse. Il faut me remettre au boulot aujourd'hui. Avec le traditionnel tri des emails.

Unless you were there, you really cannot appreciate how much damage Intel did to the PC ecosystem with the 286.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_80

The 286 was the successor to the 8086 and 8088 CPUs that powered the original IBM PCs. It offered a huge step forward from them.

Those older chips always ran in "real mode," where memory locations had fixed addresses, and any running program could modify the contents of any address. This meant that you couldn't have two programs running at once, because one might try to use a bit of memory the other was already using, and blammo!

The 286 introduced "protected mode," which prevented programs from being able to mess with memory allocated to other programs. Instead of addresses corresponding directly to blocks of memory, in protected mode they were treated as "virtual" addresses, and mapped to memory allocated just for that program.

Protected mode meant the days when one program could reach into another one and mess with its memory would be over. And that opened up all sorts of possibilities. You could have real multitasking! A whole range of crash bugs would be instantly eliminated! Suddenly the PC began to look like a machine that you could put against a UNIX workstation with a straight face.

But there was a problem. To maintain backwards compatibility with the old chips, the 286 had to boot into real mode. It could then shift into protected mode on demand. But -- and this is a big BUT -- once it was shifted into protected mode, IT COULD NOT SHIFT BACK. The only way to get back into real mode was to reboot the PC.

Which was a problem, because every PC user owned a huge library of DOS software, much of which could only run in real mode. So the 286 gave you multitasking -- but if you ever needed to run a real-mode program, you had to reboot your PC (and lose all the other running programs) to run it.

This was, as you may imagine, not ideal.
