Seen on Reddit, that continues to live up to its reputation as being the front page of the Internet.

I wonder if special hardware could be implemented that only does x86 MOV operations would be competitive with x86 using this approach?

If nothing else, it might be an interesting bit of research in what RISC can and cannot do effectively with modern hardware.

I seem to recall that I read somewhere that RISC was especially attractive before local memory caches became so large and fast (relative to off-chip memory) that it made more sense to pack more complex operations onto the processor.

+Anthony Fink People don't generally debug at the machine code or assembly code level anyway.

I have to admit, I've done it, but not very often.

Amid Voter ID Battles, Here Are 7 Things the Government Requires IDs For
As federal courts wrestle with voter ID laws in several states just months before a national election, there is considerably less attention being brought to other constitutional rights that require ID.

* Welfare benefits
* Registration for buying a gun
* Petition the government
* Right of assembly
* Right to marry
* Freedom of movement
*Public accomodations

We all accept that requiring ID to exercise certain rights is ok, and necessary to protect the rights of all. Voting is a similar situation.
“Tell me where in the Constitution does it talk about the right to buy liquor or rent a car?” says voter ID supporter J. Christian Adams.

Interesting article that helps clear up some of the smoke surrounding this issue, pun intended, but it doesn't clarify why the Government holds patents at all.

The purpose of patents is to promote the useful arts (science and technology).

Maybe I could see an argument for the Government holding patents if they were then freely licensed, but this one is not. Instead of promoting science, this just promotes profit. They are not identical.
 
Marijuana proponents have been highlighting the government-owned Patent No. 6,630,507. But the issue and the patent itself aren't black and white.

Really excellent. Music needs no defense, least of all because it helps with test scores. If you hang it on test scores, it can be defunded if the metrics don't support it.

If you don't support music education in your schools, you have yourself to blame. Get involved locally and support those property taxes increases if and only if they continue to support vital arts programs.

TL:DR?

Do not defend a music program because it's good for other things. That's like defending kissing because it gives you stronger lip muscles for eating soup neatly. Defend it because music is awesome in ways that no other field is awesome. Defend it because it is music, and that's all the reason it needs. As Emerson wrote, "Beauty is its own excuse for being." A school without music is less whole, less human, less valuable, less complete. Stand up for music as itself, and stop making excuses.

VATICAN CITY—Saying it was probably a good idea to give Him some space for the next little while, Pope Francis warned Catholic worshippers this week that now is not the best time to bother God, sources confirmed.

Catholic, Father of a young man with Autism, geek, other things
Introduction
Catholic, husband, father of a young man with Autism and a wonderful daughter who is a recent graduate from Miami University (Ohio, Miami was a University before Florida was a state) not sure what I do for a living but I think it has something to do with computers.

I think there's enough information below to figure out if you know me or not.  One thing I'm not is this guy.  I'm 32 years older than that guy!

I thought I was probably the oldest Jordan Henderson in the world, because the name Jordan wasn't popular as a first name in 1959, when I was born, but then I got some email that was supposed to go to a Doctor Jordan Henderson at a DoD Hospital in Texas.  I corresponded with him, determining I was certainly older than him, but he was Jordan Henderson the third, both his Father and Grandfather were named Jordan Henderson, so there is at least one and probably more than one older Jordan Henderson.

I reserve the right to delete comments that I think are off-topic, not of general interest, trolls (I'm arbiter) or for any reason really.  The single threaded discussion threads where most people only see the last comment is bad enough, but can be improved with editorial control, which I do take from time to time.

I'll also make posts with comments off.  Sometimes, I'm making a statement, not starting a conversation.  Message me if you want to have a private conversation about the issue. I think I'll typically share these with reshare enabled, so if you feel you'd like to share an observation about the post, reshare it with your comment.  Mention me and I might join in the conversation, but there's a good possibility I won't.

Bragging rights
My High School chess club came in Second in the state in Indiana many years ago. I placed Second in the Utah Open Chess tournament once and I placed Second in the Salt Lake City Chess Club Championship once.
