Multiboot Guide

EFI Boot Sequence Explained In this section we will consider two scenarios: How EFI handles a normal boot cycle - no intervention. What happens when you press the appropriate key to enter the EFI Settings prior to a successful boot of an operating system. First, EFI attempts each entry in the order listed in its BootOrder variable. The EFI Boot Manager begins the process of loading the file (end result) by initializing each preceeding device in order. If it gets to the end of the BootOrder list and still has not been able to transfer execution, it will begin to initialize every device connected to the system (fixed and removable) and begins to look specifically for removable devices.

As EFI Boot Manger moves on to find a bootable, removable device, it looks for an EFI partition, formatted in Fat32, Fat16 or Fat12 with an \EFI\Boot\ directory structure and that bootx64.efi is in that directory. When that file is found and loaded, execution is passed to it. 8.1.2. 8.1.3. Uefi - How do I get my HP laptop to boot into grub from my new efi file? How to install Fedora dual-boot with Windows 10.

Application binary interface. A high-level comparison of in-kernel and kernel-to-userspace APIs and ABIs Adhering to ABIs (which may or may not be officially standardized) is usually the job of the compiler, OS or library writer, but application programmers may have to deal with ABIs directly when writing programs in a mix of programming languages, using foreign function call interfaces between them.

Application binary interface

ABIs differ from application programming interfaces (APIs), which similarly define interfaces between program components, but at the source code level. Description[edit] ABIs cover details such as: A complete ABI, such as the Intel Binary Compatibility Standard (iBCS),[1] allows a program from one operating system supporting that ABI to run without modifications on any other such system, provided that necessary shared libraries are present, and similar prerequisites are fulfilled. C++ Strings. C++ provides following two types of string representations: The C-style character string.The string class type introduced with Standard C++.

The C-Style Character String: The C-style character string originated within the C language and continues to be supported within C++. USA TODAY: Latest World and US News -


Never give up; you might be closer to reaching your goal than you think « David McElroy. Every person has reached a point in his life when he wanted something very badly, but he was discouraged and ready to quit.

Never give up; you might be closer to reaching your goal than you think « David McElroy

We’ve all had things we strongly desired, but we’ve all failed in reaching some of those goals. When you’re faced with the choice between continuing to fight a “hopeless” battle or allowing yourself the relief of giving up, how do you choose? The answer might be different for every person, so I can only tell you mine. I’ve learned over the years that I’ve been too quick to give up and take the easy way out, because I was afraid or I didn’t want to pay the price that might be required to continue fighting or I simply preferred the certainty of quitting to the uncertainty of continuing the fight. When I look back on big things I’ve wanted, I’m not satisfied with any of my decisions to quit. When I was 28 years old, I started a small community newspaper in an affluent suburb of Birmingham. “Wishing will not bring a successful result.

I don’t know what your dreams are. 4.3 — Static duration variables. The static keyword is one of the most confusing keywords in the C++ language (maybe with the exception of the keyword “class”).

4.3 — Static duration variables

This is because it has different meanings depending on where it is used. In section 4.2 -- Global variables, you learned that when applied to a variable declared outside of a block, it defines a global variable with internal linkage, meaning the variable could only be used in the file in which it was defined. The static keyword can also be applied to variables declared inside a block, where it has a different meaning entirely. In section 4.1a -- Local variables and local scope, you learned that local variables have automatic duration, which means they are created when the block is entered, and destroyed when the block is exited. Igloo - BDD Style Unit Testing for C++ There are 3 levels in every software system: high-level architecture, mid-level design and low-level implementation.

You know, sometimes I hear statements like "My system is not scalable. But I only need to spice it with cool lockfree containers, and it will become perfectly scalable". Sorry, it does not work that way. Scalability starts with good high-level architecture. It's trivially easy to kill scalability on the lowest level with excessive amounts of write sharing, but it does not belittle value of good high-level architecture. In the context of scalability a good analogy to software system is an enterprise. Another good method is to think about a multicore processor as it is a distributed cluster, so that each communication between threads results in a network transfer (and it's actually roughly that way on physical level).

So, the key aspects of scalable architectures are Decentralization and Independence. What is DevOps? First, let’s just say there is no definitive answer.

What is DevOps?

Yet. There are lots of opinions about what is covered under DevOps and what’s not. Introduction - 1024cores. I bet you had heard terms like "lockfree" and "waitfree".

Introduction - 1024cores

So what it's all about? Let's start with some definitions. Wait-freedom Wait-freedom means that each thread moves forward regardless of external factors like contention from other threads, other thread blocking. Each operations is executed in a bounded number of steps. PWLSF-07/2015 - Devon O'Dell on Nonblocking Algorithms & Scalable Multicore Programming.

The Employment Status of Americans Visualized by Age

Data Notes A couple weeks ago, I published a graphic showing how marital status changes with age. I decided to do another one showing how employment status changes as well. This visualization uses Tableau to show the employment status for every age. The Best Place to Put Your Wi-Fi Router - Explained by Physics. Jason Cole, a PhD scholar of Imperial College, London, has studied this plasma-electromagnetic waves’ interaction.

He writes that the behavior of intense EM waves and plasma can be predicted using the Maxwell’s equations that date back to the 19th century. How Maths fixed the Wi-Fi in a flat? Jason used these equations to improve the Wi-Fi reception in his flat. He explains that the normal wireless router antenna emits EM radiations due to a small current oscillating at 2.4GHz. In his model, he introduced a similar current and made it to oscillate; the resultant EM waves flow was dictated by Maxwell’s equations. How To Create Bootable USB Without Any Software In Windows 10 (Using Command Prompt) These days very few people burn ISO images on disks and use them as bootable media.

Now, USB drives have replaced them as they are faster and a more convenient method to install an operating system on a machine. While there are many tools to make bootable USB drive, there’s one provided by even Microsoft, there’s a way to do the same without any software. All you need to do is fire up Command Prompt and follow some simple instructions. How Does Google do Planet-Scale Engineering for a Planet-Scale Infrastructure? How does Google keep all its services up and running?

They almost never seem to fail. If you've ever wondered we get a wonderful peek behind the curtain in a talk given at GCP NEXT 2016 by Melissa Binde, Director, Storage SRE at Google: How Google Does Planet-Scale Engineering for Planet-Scale Infrastructure. Melissa's talk is short, but it's packed with wisdom and delivered in a no nonsense style that makes you think if your service is down Melissa is definitely the kind of person you want on the case.

Oh, just what is SRE? It stands for Site Reliability Engineering, but a definition is more elusive. What happens when a software engineer is tasked with what used to be called operations. Building Super Scalable Systems: Blade Runner Meets Autonomic Computing in the Ambient Cloud. "But it is not complicated. [There's] just a lot of it.

The world is still fundamentally disconnected and for all our wisdom we are still in the earliest days of learning how to build truly large planet-scaling applications. Linux Filesystem Hierarchy.
