So usually I'd never post something like this online as I keep my personal life mostly separate.

I have been dealing with depression for quite some time, the past several years I suspect(2011+), and it has effected my friendships and relationships in many negative ways. I shutdown, I stop talking to people for periods of time and ultimately I lose them, even those who I have fond feelings for. I am sorry if I have ever stopped talking to any of you because of my depression.

Some days getting motivated to do anything is hard, other days everything seems OK. I cherish every memory I have of those I love and that helps motivate me, at the same time when I lose those close to me I feel it's all my fault and I feel down and just want them back in my life, and knowing I may not get them back hurts.

I just hope those of you whom I have ever stopped communicating with or wronged in some way due to my depression will understand and possibly forgive me.

I have debated making a post about my depression for several weeks now but could not bring myself to do it. This is hard for me to admit publicly but I feel like it will help me, and may repair some of what I've lost.

I loath most ballpoint pens.

Much like the changing physical design of the phone affected its use for calling people, the changing design of the pen has affected handwriting. You may not realize this, but it's significantly harder on the hands to write with a ballpoint pen than with a fountain pen.

I was personally very aware of this when I was a physicist, since most of the work I had to do was writing and working through page after page of equations, which to this day isn't easy to do on a computer. So it was pens and notebooks all the time, and I became extremely particular about which ones I used: a pen which either had too high a resistance or which dried too slowly, or paper that didn't absorb the ink well, and my work would actively suffer.

(Quite seriously: if your hands hurt too soon, you can't write for hours on end. If the ink smudges as you write -- especially if, like me, you're left-handed -- everything is a lost cause. If the paper doesn't absorb the ink and dry enough for you to flip pages in the notebook, you're lost. Any of these things take time, energy, and concentration, and you simply can't vanish into the flow of the science.)

This article isn't about doing science, but about how the ballpoint pen changed handwriting -- but it's through the exact same process. The various methods of cursive weren't popular primarily for their aesthetics; they were practical methods of writing quickly and legibly. As anyone who remembers having to do this in school can attest, that's always been kind of strange, because with modern pens, Palmer-method cursive is much slower and harder: people tend to develop their own semi-script handwriting for when they actually need to write day-to-day. (Except for handwriting enthusiasts who are doing it for fun)

So when you see the lack of handwriting, instead of crying "O tempora! O mores!," realize that what you're seeing isn't simply a move to computers: it's the evolution of the pen itself.

Sigh at the antivirus companies PR firm who probably pushed this.

Nah, it's cool. I'll edit this, since nobody else did.

- Your phone isn't actually shut down. That's the hack.
- Story doesn't mention how this POS gets on your phone in the first place, and thus how you can easily avoid it. (Hint: Don't download malware from Chinese app stores.)
- Story does mention that your phone has to be rooted for this to happen at all in the first place. But it doesn't mention that rooting your phone — which, by the way, doesn't just happen on its own — means opening it up to other exploits and attacks.
- (I'll let slide the picture of a Lollipop device, but this only affects pre-Lollipop OS versions.)
- Story does give AVG more press coverage, so that's good, right?

Couldn't agree more +Jean-Baptiste Quéru​

If you can't innovate, litigate

So, Europe is going after Google again.

I think this is especially dumb this time, for 2 entirely different reasons.

The first reason is that the underlying reasoning doesn't pass basic logic:

-If you assume that the functionality of Google's search engine is inherently unrelated to their other products (and therefore shouldn't be tied to those other products), you're implying that there's essentially zero "stickiness" to search, i.e. that the fundamental reason why a user would pick one search engine over another for any individual search is based purely on the quality of the search results. Under that assumption, you're implying that the market is purely competitive, and that the reason why so many people use Google's search engine over the competition is that Google's search engine fills those people's needs better.

-If on the other hand you assume that the functionality of Google's search engine is inherently related to their other products, you can't then hold the reasoning that they're artificially tied together. I actually think that Google is in that domain, where their products work very well together.

The second reason is that Europe's other behaviors naturally privilege larger players. One of many such examples is around the "right to be forgotten": the number of search results to censor is the same for a small search engine than it is for a large one, and the cost of censoring those results is disproportionately harder to bear for a smaller search engine than for a large one.

If Europe really wants more competition for Google, they can approach it in several other ways:

-They can take down the laws that favor big players. As an example, for the right to be forgotten, instead of censoring the news results (which isn't a scalable solution in a competitive environment), the information that people don't want to see should be censored at the source (or at least mark it as non-searchable), such that no search engine will show that information, regardless of that search engine's size.

-They can facilitate direct competition against the incumbents by legislating forms of neutrality. Net neutrality obviously comes to mind, but it isn't the only one. Pushing much further, licensing neutrality where copyright owners must license their works under equal terms to all companies, big and small.

-They can uniformize their laws a lot more. When it comes to IP laws, privacy laws, Europe isn't the 3rd largest "country" in the world, in fact they don't break into the top 15. To build products for Europe as a whole, you currently need an army of lawyers, because you're really still building for 28 individual countries, and that also favors large players over smaller ones.

Ultimately, coming back to my title, the behavior I'm seeing from Europe worries me a lot for the future. Europe is seeing itself as being non-competitive in Internet technologies, and as a result it plays a somewhat protectionist approach. However, that's also an isolationist approach, and isolating themselves from the state of the art isn't suddenly going to make Europe catch up in technology. Rather, Europe will fall even further behind as a result.___Couldn't agree more +Jean-Baptiste Quéru​

The most crippled influential CPU ever is 35 years old: happy birthday 8088

There is no processor which had such a lasting influence on computing history.  When IBM decided to produce the personal computer, aptly named PC XT, they selected a cheap Intel CPU. The 8088 which was crippled as it couldn't address more than 1 MB.

This seemed wise,  not because 640KB was enough for everyone as +Bill Gates is incorrectly quoted, but because 16 bits PCB boards were expensive to manufacture and why waste money. 

The 8088 was very difficult to program, slow at 4.77 mhz, couldn't properly address memory and had some major flaws.

The most crippled influential CPU ever is 35 years old: happy birthday 8088

There is no processor which had such a lasting influence on computing history.  When IBM decided to produce the personal computer, aptly named PC XT, they selected a cheap Intel CPU. The 8088 which was crippled as it couldn't address more than 1 MB.

This seemed wise,  not because 640KB was enough for everyone as +Bill Gates is incorrectly quoted, but because 16 bits PCB boards were expensive to manufacture and why waste money. 

The 8088 was very difficult to program, slow at 4.77 mhz, couldn't properly address memory and had some major flaws. However the IBM XT was hugely popular so it became the benchmark to write code against.  The memory limitations were 'addressed' by a variety of clumsy and super smart solutions, still leaving the user with the need to configure his himem.sys and what else we got. 

The limitations were overcome by some 'clones' like the NEC, the 80186 by Intel, but mostly by very smart programmers who developed memory management, paging schemes and what else laying the foundations for modern operating systems.

Most of all however it was a fun processor for programmers. Yes, it couldn't do what a 68000 easily achieved, making it the laughing stock of Apple, Atari and Amiga programmers, BUT it had a working business model. People actually bought software for it.

In case you come from another era: bit like the iPad 1 :)

Getting the damned thing to perform was a huge challenge and I'm pretty sure that a new generation of programmers / hardware hackers got created not because the 8088 was anything good, but because there was a challenge: how to get that crippled thing to sing and dance. 

Don't forget it came - in the IBM XT package - with a GPU which if possible was even more behind times compared to the home computers of these days like the BBC, Armstrad, Amiga, Atari etc. Most were better performers and certainly easier to program.

I had the smart insight bad luck to buy a clone XT, meaning it was compatible on MS-DOS level, not on machine instructions, nor on a closer spec called PC--DOS.

Now this should have been easy as who would bypass MS-DOS? Why would you? And indeed mine worked fine, except that it actually had better hardware than the original and suddenly the flaw became clear. Nobody would ever take advantage of it. 

Mine could do full pixel addressing on high res, nothing like the CGA of the orginal, but I couldn't use it. My amber monitor would only show the WordStar formatting codes while I was sure it could do a better job.

Ah well, I was busy writing a thesis (on a very different subject than computers), but why not try to write an editor. Wysiswig they were called when invented: word processors which could show formatting on screen. Nobody could, but there was a rumor Microsoft would start doing it.

I realized that if they would release it, it wouldn't support my specific, slightly different, hardware so I decided to write one myself. Took me six months, but by then I had a lightning fast completely graphical text editor which did italics and more stuff I can't show here because G+ is still behind my home brew program. 

When Microsoft Word finally was released my thesis was already finished and so was my wife's one. The only two users the system ever had. But I did test and my software was way faster on page refreshes than Word 1.0 so reason to celebrate. 

Apparently I could do more than writing theses for my university. I'm still happy, both for the limitations of the 8088 which made you puzzle and think twice if not more before committing code to it as well as the luck  (with hindsight) of having a not completely compatible machine forcing me to write most code myself. 

(In case you want to know: all events triggered a career change where for a few years I was a dedicated graphic programmer specializing in 3D, but that's for another story).

What memories do you have of that humble 8088 CPU

The button shows the number of followers you have directly in a small button. You can add this button to your website, like the +1-Button of Google or the Like-Button of Facebook.






You can add this button directly in your website. For more information about the CircleCount Buttons and the description how to add them to another page click here.
