I've had my i7 laptop with 8GB for at least 4 years now (started out on win 8.1).
It has worked fine. I could run
1. web browser
2. Android Studio
3. Android emulator
All at the same time and I never had a problem. Now, I cannot run those 3 or all my RAM is gone.
I can now only (barely) run the
1. web browser
2. android studio
The only way i can use my computer for Android development now is to use an externally connected android device to run/debug apps on. Very sad. This laptop is not able to upgrade to 16GB. I know. It's crazy and cheapo.
Actually, I can barely run the web browser when Android Studio is running. Not great.
When I open too many tabs the tabs just crash and burn.
Win 10 Ram Eater?
Anyways, I also noticed this in win 10 at work and now at home. Check out how many svchost.exe processes are running:
I just started Visual Studio 2019 on my machine to see what it would look like.
Loaded up a basic sized MVC project and it's at 300MB. Quite a difference compared to Android STudio and it's desire for 2GB of ram (AS @ 1.0GB and the two Java procs at 1 GB).
Check out how many svchost.exe processes are running:
I can't even fit them all on one screen (in task manager) see the snapshot : https://i.stack.imgur.com/bPaaD.png[^]
What is going on? Has anyone else noticed this?
The old Windows security model was severely lacking... but process isolation is actually quite good. The reason browsers consume so much RAM is because they are also taking advantage of process isolation and job object isolation. The operating system is now also taking advantage of process isolation.
Plus... in the old service model when a service crashed a half-dozen other services crashed along with it. You can go back to the old behavior by changing a registry key but you will not gain much by doing that.
For a development box I'd recommend a minimum of 16GB RAM.
That’s great information and very good points about what is happening.
And, you are, of course, correct, 16GB for development is a lot more realistic.
I just got away with it for so long I’ve gotten soft.
Check this out. I was just browsing through a folder and I played an mp4 file and the video played and then out of nowhere I got this message*:
"Because you're accessing sensitive info, you need to verify your password." https://i.stack.imgur.com/vbbGC.png[^]
I couldn't even tell what app was causing this to appear. It seems to be the app that is playing the mp4 video. Crazy, microsoft. Really crazy.
I did not enter my password and the app played the video and everything else works the same. Seems so fake!
It may be the video player: some of them try to access metadata online I think.
Again, I believe you are correct.
Which player were you using?
That was part of the craziness. It was the built-in win10 one I think?
Can't really tell. There is nothing in the Store App that lets me know what is running. I do see "Movies & TV" so I think that is what it is called.
The additionally weird thing is that I've played the video a number of times again to see if the popup would come back and it didn't.
I don’t have OneDrive as a default save location on my machine.
I wouldn’t ever want that really.
However, it is possible that the recent big update (1903 recently installed on my machine) May have changed something. However, I checked and that file is in my Downloads directory.
because my mind wandered to weird places regarding the lockpicking comments and because i recently saw an article here on doing some less than upstanding things to exploit software vulnerabilities - the kind that bypass DEP.
so part of me is wondering if i should post it - if i can find the source. i actually made it as part of a larger search engine scraping tool so if i gutted the google specific bits i could legally speaking "sanitize it"
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
I don't see how or why that should violate google's search tos, given that it's just a command-line search, and not automated.
Calling it repeatedly from a shell with an input file of search terms would be considered "automated", but calling a browser repeatedly from a shell with an input file of search terms would be exactly the same thing, so its being a command-line tool makes no difference whatsoever.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I don't see how or why that should violate google's search tos,
GIT Repo said:
Fast and clean (no ads, stray URLs or clutter), custom color
Maybe because they probably can't make so much business if there is many people using it?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
In fact, I am repleter than a very replete thing. No mushrooms, so I just layered as much bacon into a 30 inch pan as I possibly could. Also, no hash-browns, as I couldn't be arsed with them. As I am not allowed to cook chips in HER kitchen*, I did fried potato cubes in the frying pan. They need constant attention to turn them, but this is a good thing, as I can multi-task it with drinking beer - not so hard when you get the hang of it.
All the rest is as advertised by a solid English brunch.
* Quite how it became HER kitchen, I am not terribly sure, as I recall paying for everything from the house it's in to the peppercorns in the peppermill.
I cheat: Sausage, bacon, black pudding are under the grill, eggs in a fry pan. Toast in the toaster (obviously); mushrooms, beans, and tomatoes in separate packs in the Sous Vide at 79C. Hash browns prepared earlier, go in the Heska (a Chinese "pizza cooker" that can't cook pizza to save its life but does very well with tortillas, pancakes, and near dry-fry potato objects)
Resulting washing up: plates, cutlery, one fry pan, and the grill pan (lined with foil to make that easier)
Means I only use one ring instead of four+, and only have to keep an eye on the grill instead of stirring multiple pans, until the eggs go in, and they are two minutes with a light shake every now and then.
