Hey bro, there's a bunch of common sense diagnostics you can do to determine problems. Lower your screen resolution, if performance speeds up, it's a graphics issue. Load an application, and then close it, load it again, if the second time is much much faster, then it's a storage issue.

Also take a moment to understand what Windows does to gain speed, it will pre-cache applications that are frequently run into ram to speed their performance up. From Windows 8 and up they minimalized the UI to improve rendering. These things can be implemented in Gnome/KDE as well.

But most importantly remember this, as a perfectionist, once it's configured perfectly, you'll find a reason to screw it up again to give your life meaning and fill the existential void that is our perception of living before you die. To add to your existential computer crisis, even if you're not a perfectionist, the above still applies.

I can also recommend a more holistic approach, you can decrease your glucose and caffeine consumption until your brain slows down, as this occurs, the computers performance will increase through relativity.

#Ubuntu is surprisingly unresponsive compared to Windows. Launching programs can take 5-10 seconds (with no indication that anything is happening)....

So I've been reading so much from the intelligent community here, however I'm noticing the community is intelligent through a scientific spectrum and not really subject to unbiased perspectives when it comes to current events. Where are the middle of the road people?

Have aliens visited earth?

Good afternoon morning evening Qoto..
What's new with you?

I took a hiatus.. what happened since I've been gone?

Question for fellow users:

When you want to boost a post, do you also tend to favorite it or just boost it alone?

Drowning with the pretty in the city of sin, come breathe with me, let's go for a swim. 😈

Maverick rotten fruit I am
Swarm broken flys to my appealing peeling
They think I'm still alive

Test, test, testing, 1 2 3, testing 1 2

Got this gem in the beginning of the year.. not sure if I got bingo or not..

Well, I guess that's the end of that!
I've been stressed, so I start scrolling this magnificent place. I find a great article someone posted. I open and start reading. Bam! Subscribe to continue reading. Go back to Qoto, happens again. Now I'm more stressed. I'm starting to understand how some people go to TikTok and let it ruin their brain, cause it feels good. *Sighs* this place is supposed to be ad free. I'm betting some of these robotooters are just paid promoters. </rant>

Mid programming, my brain randomly starts thinking "they're gonna reboot Indiana Jones I bet", and I start pondering interesting choices for a new Indiana. They're absurd, but interesting.

Hit me, I'll hit back
If this world's going to fuck me
Go hard, make it fun

Hmm.. I wish people here would post original thoughts, I appreciate those. It seems there's a lot of people googling stuff, and just sharing it. While I'm not opposed to an automatic search engine, it seems like people are just piping other peoples piping for notoriety. I'm pretty good at using a search engine too, but I don't think it's anything anybody really deems an admirable quality.

If you got some spare time I'd love to hear some opinions. 

Freedom = Luxury?

(No options = no freedom) == (options = freedom) // true

Luxury == All possible options. // true

Oppression = --options // true

This is how my brain works, oppression only works if we recognize its validity. We might completely disagree with it, yet if we accept it's application, it's still valid. However if we don't, we have additional options. It seems to me, that the oppressed are oppressed by choice. While all options have consequences, consequences are in themselves options.

1) If life isn't fair by nature, why do we futility strive to make it fair?

Entropy is universal, there will be more destroyed than created in the long run. So we treasure and induce the creation events, full well ignoring the fact that it will accelerate destructive events.

2) Why are people still surprised at the destructive events?

Number 3 is for you..
Who are you giving your options to? If you don't even recognize they exist, when others take them, why get angry at them? Isn't it your fault to begin with?

Number 4 is for everyone..
Wars have always existed, world wars existed the moment they became possible.. will there ever be a third world war?

My number 4 answer: As long as we continue to give our options to others. Bias is just as eternal as war. To give your life for a good cause honorable yet foolish, to use your life for the creation of good causes is just honorable. I don't think this is probable at all. Too many people with their face buried in their phones to see the real options around them being taken away. WWIII, WWIV, WWX, will all happen, probably even a WWM. The herd might thin out but the animal will still be the animal. The people with the ability to survive aren't the saviors, they're the causes.

We need to stop applying non organic geometry to organic sciences. Want to know why pi never ends? Because all things are in motion, ever expanding, ever contracting. Circles do not exist, they're purely informational. All circles are simply fragments of spirals from a third dimensional perspective. When observed across 4 dimensions, it's always a spiral. This means there's 2 questions that need to be asked. If space and time have 3 arrays to be perceived, and time is a correlation of space, isn't it safe to presume time also contains 3 arrays? We seem to be caught up with only 1 of them. Any ideas on what the other 2 could be or how we could observe them?

An awesome way to make scalable node backends. 

The main goal of this article isn't to influence you to build your applications my way, it's to illustrate that programming is a creative business, and following everyone else's instructions only leads to building what everyone else has already built. You might make a lot of money building stuff out of Legos, but you won't make more than the guy who created Legos.

Frontends are more dynamic than ever, here's a wild idea to make backends just as dynamic.

Instead of storing your custom modules as files, store them in a standalone database. The code can be executed by the eval method.

Pros -

Code optimization plans become simpler, you can use database reporting tools to see what code is being called, and how often.

Using an object based database such as Mongo or Maria, has the ability to run in cluster mode, which allows event listeners to be attached to the database. This makes building a cloud IDE that allows collaborative real-time development (like Google Docs) much easier to build.

The above allows for automatic code versioning and developer tracking.

The above also allows for the ability to catch errors, and try to run previous versions of the same code when errors occur.

Development of AI becomes simpler, code fragments can be stored and dynamically assembled in real-time when needed.

Server efficiency is improved greatly as node instances run in a process thread. A user that is only using certain features of the application, isn't loading the entire application into memory, shrinking the size of that users thread. Threads become more dynamic.

If a data intrusion takes place, your source code is protected by requiring access to a separate system inside the LAN creating an extra layer of protection.

This can be made super secure by creating private keys that are not accessible to even the admin of the node server because they are dynamically created by the process threads independently in conjunction with the database server, this code is served to the node server also from the database, but from a different user.

Application updates in real-time, while the user is using the app.

The most beautiful pro yet, if platform as a service is your goal, your applications can borrow code from each other in an extremely simple way.

You'll be a rebel.

Cons -

Development occurs inside a database. Can't use VIM, Nano, or even VSCode to edit, requires a custom cloud based IDE. NOT THAT HARD TO BUILD OK?

While can be done on one server, should be done on at least 2.

The eval method is insanely dangerous, it executes code from a string. The core of the application must be write protected in production, and argument validation strictly enforced.

This is a new concept for a node application architecture, there isn't much of an online community supporting it.

NPM modules must remain outside the database due to dependencies. I'm currently writing a module to import and manage them into the db.

You'll be a rebel.

If you've read this far, I hope these ideas have inspired you to branch out more in what you develop. We have have so many tools.

The best architects challenge the best engineers. The worst architects challenge the best engineers. If you're going to be challenged, make sure it's worth it.
