Ubuntu has spyware enabled by default?

Posted 05-08-2014 at 05:14 AM by Peter T

@ k3?tO1

Do tell... about enabled spyware.

And what is the third element of your user handle ?

And from what I have read sofar, VitualBox with MS Word loaded
seems to be the only way users are able to 'bring over' doc's
formatted in Word to show up in Linux in a reasonable facsimile.

Enabled spyware REALLY ??? surely you jest.

The shared thumbnail folder can be quite sizeable on linux (or whatever OSs follow the freedesktop.org specifications), you won't have much trouble finding forum threads of people asking if it's OK to delete it, because it's occupying too much space.

One of the reasons it occupies so much space is because the thumbnails are set to be PNG files, which are comparatively large by nature. Thumbnails for a folder full of JPEGs of moderately medium-large resolution (about 800-1200x800-1200)...

Memory overhead of Python and Perl associative arrays

Posted 05-06-2014 at 06:51 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I've been measuring the relative memory overhead of perl hashes and python dicts (essentially the same data type, both associative arrays).

These measures are necessarily approximate, since they resize differently as the tables fill, but the overhead comes to about 57 bytes plus 76 bytes per element for perl, and 264 bytes plus 123 bytes per element for python. Both of these are for numeric-to-numeric mappings.

About halfway through this exercise, it occurred to me...
