These "rings" are mostly conceptual in nature with ring0 always at the operating system kernel. It gets even more complicated when you consider the modern UEFI BIOS. For example with the hypervisor enabled the hyperviser becomes "ring -1" and when it's disabled the BIOS becomes "ring -1".

I mean, why did you think 3 was sufficient?
I would make the argument that Microsoft Windows doesn't have 3 protection rings... I intentionally mentioned the HAL because it's technically sitting above the kernel and on top of the hardware layer. These protection ring concepts are subjective. If you asked three kernel developers you'd probably get three different answers.
I wouldn't really put it like that, as I understand it the point of WASM was specifically to get away from piling things on top of JS and forever being limited by JS limitations (for example asm.js lacks 64bit integers and would have a bad time adding such a thing). There is an option to emulate WASM with an emulator written in JS, but that wasn't meant to be The Way it Works, that's just a thing so you could start using it before first-class WASM support materialized.

I see. That must be what I was thinking of as I only looked at it when it first hit the internet. Like I said, I don't do a lot of web front end/web client development, but I found it interesting.
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.
Netflix had Serenity, the finale to the canceled Firefly series.
I had seen neither, but I heard good things.
So I got Firefly and watched it last week.
I was just getting ready to see Serenity and... NETFLIX REMOVED IT JUST LAST WEEK!
I even remember showing it to a friend on Wednesday, when she said "I can rent Serenity" (apparently a movie with the same name came out this year).
For some reason I can get Firefly in blu-ray without any problems, but Serenity is a bit more difficult...
Yeah, they do.
They add and remove movies regularly.
For example, not that Disney gets its own streaming service all Disney movies are being pulled from Netflix.
It's all licensing I guess.
You also don't want old movies to be in the way of new movies, so it's best to keep a limited selection.
Neither am I.
I think it's the most overrated series ever
It's fun, very entertaining, it's also good, but I'm missing story, drama, plot twists, element of surprise, all that.
You can watch the episodes in any order, or skip a few, and not feel like you missed anything.
I guess that was the norm in 2002, but I expect a bit more in 2019.
It gets a 9 on IMDb, but I'd probably give it an 8 and really only because the episodes are so wel made.
Perhaps it would be more accurate to rate the episodes with 8's and 9's, but the series as a whole a 7 or something.
I still want to see the movie though.
Maybe there's some story, drama, plot twists and element of surprise after all
I had the exact opposite with Cowboy Bebop.
It get's an 8.9 on IMDb and it's regarded as a classic.
The episodes are not very thrilling and sometimes even outright boring.
But it does one thing right, it sets an atmosphere using great images and music.
The last few episodes are pretty good too.
So while most episodes are a 6 or 7 at best, I'd still rate the series as a whole with a 9
Now what do Firefly and Captain Bebop have in common?
They're both space westerns
I have to get me some more of those.
Typical. Netflix rarely has what I want. Crunchyroll too. And it's worse here than in the US. They treat Europe like it's some third world shithole.
Meanwhile DFW is angry that people keep wearing the old tricorn.
I think Netflix is especially good for series.
They do have some good movies, but it's getting less now that everyone and their dog gets their own streaming service...
We have Netflix, Videoland, HBO, Amazon Prime, Disney, WB...
I can't take a subscription on all, but of course they're reluctant to share their exclusives.
Assuming they have what I want at all, like Serenity that's pretty hard to find, even in (Dutch) shops.
And that's how pirates are born
I don't want to pirate (and so far I don't), but how else am I going to see what I want to see?
