MAKEPKG of VLC causes segmentation fault on plugins.datview story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I had an issue with VLC Media Player where files from my HDD were heavily delayed before playing (never had this on other distributions). In my attempts to fix it, someone on the IRC advised me to use ABS to build it against ffmpeg, as the current version of VLC was using an outdated version of ffmpeg (if I understand correctly).

Huh? Wasn't this settled 20 years ago?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – Tailgate up or down? http://ca.autoblog.com/2014/08/27/fo...own-mpg-video/ Should you drive with your pickup truck's tailgate up or down? It's an age-old controversy that's divided drivers for decades. Traditionalists will swear you should leave the tailgate down. Makes sense, right? It would seem to let the air flow more cleanly over the body and through the bed. (Hardware)

Off-duty cops kills kid, doesn't get indictedview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – http://abc13.com/archive/9326265/ http://abc13.com/news/navasota-offic...g-teen/281936/ Almost a year later, a grand jury didn't indict the off-duty officer, who while in plain clothes, and even wearing a hoodie, approached the kids in their car with his gun drawn. The kids thought they were getting robbed, and backed up and tried to escape, and pinned the officer between two cars. (Hardware)

The untold dangers of eMMCview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – It just hit me how BAD eMMC technology is. Imagine, a PC, with a tiny SSD soldered to the motherboard. Only, there is no way to replace it, like a HDD or SSD can normally be replaced. Instead, you have to throw out the board or the PC altogether, when it eventually wears out. Which, given the smaller sizes of eMMC (32GB), is going to be sooner rather than later. (Hardware)
