How do Solar Cells behave from a Voltage perspective? There are often 12V and 24 V Moduls. What I want to know, do they have constant Voltage output and the current changes depending on the Light or does voltage and current change with light intensity and the 12V or 24V are just the upper limit?
What you need to do is get yourself a cheap solar cell and a cheap volt meter and some resistors and play around. Learn about loads and current draw and voltage relationships. Nothing beats getting the real parts and experimenting/playing.
In short. The voltage will change much less when they are not powering something. Higher light will keep the voltage up and allow you to power more things without the voltage sagging.
The ultimate way to show this is to take the wires coming out of the solar cell and connect them together and measure the voltage. zero volts is what you'll get since your load is the wire. Have fun.
I don't have any to live test. My point for asking is because I wanted to use a solar charger with an bike dynamo and was wondering if I'd need beside a AC/DC rectifier a voltage converter too.
Most modules will have a data sheet. But iirc voltage goes up quite fast and stays at .5 to .6 volts per cell. If you want to charge a battery though, just get an MPPT charger, which converts the voltage of the cells' optimum power point to charging voltage. There should be a voltage-current-diagram in the module data sheet, which goes straight and then drops. The 'knee' at the start of the drop is that optimal power point.
Sure it's just music now but here is what will change the game:
If youtube red provides music, tv, movies, and audiobooks for $10-$20 a month everybody will flock to it and youtube will become the new television. Netflix and hulu and amazon shit stick will be kill
the problem with web television is that there has been one unanimous winner that has all the shows that sets the standard. this is in part because real television is not dead yet. But once real television dies the owners will go "oh fuck if we don't dish out this old footage on the web we wont make any more money durr"
and so then they will have to put it all online. But now the shows are basically split between amazon shit stick, hulu, and netflix. No one platform has got them all. yet other stations fuck around like adult swim just puts their shit on adultswim.com like idiots.
So basically rite when google does this everybody gonna fall in line and there gonna be internet tv and I can finally get caught up on shows I am way behind on like legend of korra and game of thrones and harry potter.
I need a rig with enough horsepower to run Google maps
Oh shit. You want to run it like that! Fuck me man. You're gonna need some deep blue styles shit if you want that sort of capacity. I suggest calling IBM and starting some heavy negotiations.
What is /g/'s opinion on the C vs Rust language war?
Is the memory safety of Rust worth the nonportability and fatass compiler/binaries?
Is C's speed (outperformed by rust in a few special cases) and portability worth the lack of guaranteed memory safety?
Who wins the holy war?
C is king, small binary sizes means less cache misses, more compiler optimization, the lingua franca of all our IT infrastructure from kernels to drivers to compilers and browsers and literally everything is C.
>rust SJW fags
>ever associating with those people
Humans are bound to make mistakes that go overlooked unfortunately so one can't assume 100%, no matter how responsible the devs are, that code is safe.
Rust forces memory and type safety which effectively saves a lot of time and money that would otherwise be spent dealing with vulnerabilities.
C, however, isn't exactly foolproof which results in issues when ((humans)) write it.
Would you buy an ASRock motherboard or a GIGABYTE motherboard?
Asrock only, gigabyte sucks. Had one for my fx 8320 with the 970 chipset, the piece of shit had a hardware bug in the IOMMU, it wouldn't even install debian if I didn't turn IOMMU off and the usb drivers would still do weird shit and it was just no. Then they just abandoned it by never doing any bios updates and redoing it as a rev 2. never again.
Got an x370 asrock now, works really well, lots of updates, lots of features, nice stuff.
What are you working on, /g/?

Why should I learn haskell if my job is mostly C++/Python/Matlab?
How do we fix the "numales in tech" problem?
The problem is bringing people's personal lives into the professional sphere.
Ban that behavior on their end and stop hunting for it on yours. "Don't ask, don't tell" had it right all along.
Is FDroid dead?
I can't receive updates for shit anymore
Since Java runs in a virtual machine, would it be possible to design a physical, real computer that would be able to run Java code natively (eg: without the JVM)?
"Anon, what's a byte and a bit?"
>decentralized P2P network
>like torrents, but instead of having a .torrent file or magnet, you use the file's hash and the network takes care of finding seeders
>files and metadata are separate, so renaming or moving a file won't change its hash
>you can add files to the network with one line in the CLI or a drag-and-drop into the web interface
>HTTP gateways let you download any hash through your browser without running IPFS
>can stream video files in mpv or VLC (though it's not recommended unless the file has a lot of seeds)
How it Works
When you add a file, the files are split up into pieces and hashed. Any user can request one of these hashes and the nodes set up peer connections automatically. If two users have the same file, regardless of what folder it's inside or what it's named, it's considered the same file, as opposed to .torrent files/magnets where everyone needs to have the exact same torrent.
>Is it safe?
It's about as safe as a torrent right now, but slightly better since it's more obscure.
>Is it fast?
Finding a seeder can take between a few seconds and a few minutes. It's slowly improving but still requires a fair bit of optimization work. Once the download starts, it's as fast as the peers can offer, just like a torrent.
>Is it a meme?
On the other hand, it's still alpha software with a small userbase and poor network performance.
Websites of interest
Official IPFS HTTP gateway. Slap this in front of a hash and it will download a file from the network. Be warned that this gateway is slower than using the client and accepts DMCAs.
Pomf clone that utilizes IPFS. Currently 10MB limit.
Also hosts a gateway at gateway.glop.me which doesn't have any DMCA requests as far as I can tell.
Planned features for next version (0.4.10):

What's the fucking point when a 1080ti can barely run some games maxed out at 1440p?
The problem with Apple isn't Indians or Tim Cook.
It's motherfucking Jony Ive.
Every single one of Apple's problems always - ALWAYS - stems back to Jony being a dick with his design. Every. Single. One.
Name ONE (1) way this man isn't totally fucking people over using design on a daily basis.
