What are you working on?
I need some ZeroMQ help.
I want clients to connect to a server, make requests, and get replies. Naturally, I tried the REQ-REP pattern. It worked, but there was a problem: requests have to be processed one by one (since ZMQ sockets aren't thread-safe).
Solution: ROUTER-DEALER pattern. Clients connect to the router, which sends all requests through a DEALER that distributes requests to any number of connected workers.
New problem: DEALER fairly distributes requests to workers, whether they're idle or busy.
>1st worker gets a long request from a client, it will be busy for a while
>2nd gets a short request from another client, it replies
>1st worker still has not replied
>new request comes in, DEALER puts it on the 1st worker's queue
>2nd worker is idle, while the 1st one is still busy with the old request, as well as a new one
How can I avoid this?

Which one of you actually used a Mac for more than a week, and actually hated it enough to move back to Windows or Linux?
Haven't met anyone.
I did, it is to dull, I feelt more confortable using Fedora than OSX, now I'm using Windows 10 and Fedora and nothing would make me return to a Mac, is all hype.
Intel has been absolutely blown the fuck out of the CPU market. It's dead, burry it. Consider this mercy.

Who else is blind as fuck from staring at the computer screen all day?

>pic related, regular glasses
>also have a set of computer glasses and prescription sunglasses
Deteriorating vision by staring at a computer screen or TV is a myth. It doesn't harm your eyes in any way whatsoever. You're just getting old but you're making excuses because you're in denial about your old ass age.

Am I in the wrong here?

I think there was an iptables module for this but it got removed
you can filter things on a per-user basis though, and you can run your programs as another user
selinux might also be able to do this

ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
If I want to buy 2 x 27 " screens and I usually just use GNU/Linux, should I go for 1440p or is 4k worth it?
Right now at work, I'm using a 27" Dell screen which is capable of 4k, but I'm running it at 1440p all the time because 4k feels uncomfortable. Now on a long run, with software improving and high dpi scaling getting better, should I already buy a 4k screen?
Right now I'm using 2 x 22" Full-HD Acer screens
If requesting purchasing advice, please provide your country and what carrier you will be using it with, along with wanted features, budget and size.

>Dual rear camera
>Fingerprint and usb type C
I like how it resembles iPhone (i'm a fan of the iPhone design), but it has an actually usefull OS. I don't play muh games on my phone, I chat on it, listen to the music and ocassionaly snap a photo with it. It's quite cheap and I already have a good opinion for the company since I had a Redmi Note 2 Prime. I liked how easy it was to flash a rom or root it, it was a nice phone overall but the camera sucked. I heard that there is going to be a Redmi 5a, I'm also considering it, but mi 5x is already out. What do you guys think?
Please, reply to this post. I would like to purchase it but dont want to make a mistake by doing so

You had one job. Just one. Make the linux desktop. Why did you fail?
GNU/Linux on the desktop has increased 150% in the past two years. It was 1% in 2015 and now it is 2.5%. Mac is 3.5% for reference. And these are people who installed a new OS by their own volition. Eventually, GNU/Linux will be a big player. Sage for bad thread that's been made 10 million times.
It's not enough to ask people to install linux. Casuals are too dumb to reinstall their os. We have to get them to sell computers that come with linux.
That will be the year of the linux desktop is when you go to buy a computer it comes with a unix based os.
