    I'm curious if any of you happen to know how well Mac OS X handles its own garbage collection of deleted files, seeing as by design they mostly - as far as I'm aware - take that out of your hands.

    syndalis‌

    Not quite sure what you mean WRT "garbage collection of deleted files"

    Garbage collection of objects and arrays in memory is pretty solid...

    When you delete a file, it drops it from the file system... if you delete a file via interface / Automator functions it goes into a trash bin...

    OSX is SMART capable now, so SSDs don't get junked over a long enough timeline like they used to...

    If I put a file into the bin and I force the bin to empty, is it still cluttering up my usable memory until OS X gets around to doing something else later? In the manner that such a deletion would still leave memory less usable on Windows, but which you can fix there with a defrag.

    It kind of feels on the basis of my laptop slowing down over time that yes, there is some defrag corollary that needs to run and sometimes does, but no it does not run immediately and no you cannot force it to run.

    i am p sure that, just like on windows, the deallocated bytes are not immediately blanked out - they are just made available for allocation and overwritten whenever data is allocated in those sectors.

    if you need something blanked out you should get a utility that does this.

    I think they actually do blank out? I remember a Mac nerd I know saying this

    looks like no unless you do the "secure empty trash..." selection in i think the option-finder menu

    the worst thing is spending an hour or so finely tweaking a face and then, when you're finally done, realizing that they just won't suit the character you were going to make at all and realizing you're going to have to make the character the face wants to be first, then start all over to make the face for the character you want to be

    You see that picture? I see a bunch of scrawny scrubs standing in between me and a LoL Skin. That's what I see. I don't see a barrier, I see an opportunity to violate all kinds of personal space. We can make a game of it. The game starts by taking two klonopin each. Then you wait about 15 minutes, and start slowly walking forward into the sea of nerd.

    We will be at the front in like 30 seconds.

    it's not the nerds it's their 140 lb backpacks

    Can we just topple them by yanking their top strap?

    And they cut all the Q&A with Mike and Jerry this year!

    I'm so sad... now I only have 1 panel to go to... what will I do with all this extra time?

    I think they do Q&A during make a strip, but I could be misremembering. Weird that they aren't doing the regular Q&A though this year.

    They do, which is why I'm still going to that.

    But Mike is usually pretty occupied with drawing so you don't get quite the same interaction between the two of them.

    Making me real sad.

    They are combining Make a Strip and the proper Q&A into one big thing, with submitted questions.


    And if you're wondering why, I have a theory which I will put in spoilers because it is liable to start a row and you're welcome to just skip over it:
    You can basically thank freakouts and concerted efforts to damage their brand by people with various social justice agendas. Way to go, tumblr. Way to go, internet, you fucked up another cool thing by making people gun-shy of any interaction.

    Yeah, MSSS was a reality show that purported to document parents enabling pretty much exactly that.

    The episodes were pretty much all exactly the same.
