I've been slowly learning vim over a couple of years and ocasionally look over at emacs and wonder if its something I should be familiar with. Vim or vi is usually shipped standard with most linux distros and I can't really see any good reason to learn a second set of autistic key combinations. From a glance it looks like emacs avoided vim's 3 mode brand of special but it doesn't seem like theres a clear advantage to one over the other.
do you like vim? stick with it.
do you dislike vim? try emacs.
personally, i like vim. my uni made us try both and vim just stuck, so i never went back trying emacs again because i was never unhappy with what i had. whatever you do, though, i would suggest you avoid trying to solve non-existant problems; they say you should pick an editor and git gud with it instead of changing your tools all the time and never learn any of them properly.

Thinking about buying a hp proliant g8 microserver to replace my Synology ds214+. I mainly would use it as a plex media server + file server. Thoughts?
they are not strong for decoding unless you get a compatible videocard to fit into it's expansion slot.
you can also upgrade to an unsupported faster cpu.
both have their disadvantages depending what you want to do with the server.

Question: what laptop should I get for a computer science degree? Macbook Pro or PC? If PC, what model would you recommend?
Or should I just pool my money into building a kickass desktop gaming computer and use a tablet for taking notes?
There are many people suggesting to build a powerful desktop and get a cheap but portable laptop, as you hardly ever need a lot of computing power on the go.
Anyway, personally I didn't do that. I bought a reasonably performant rMBP and just plug it to a monitor both in my office at university and at home. It's nice not having to think about synching separate devices.
If you go with the first possibility, I wouldn't go with Apple though, just not worth it at all.
I am living with my gf's family for the summer and the connection situation is awful.
They have Comcast, and the default router. To get to my girlfriends room it needs to penetrate two walls and I get both slow speeds and unstable pings.
The WiFi channel is crowded as well. I added an E2500 and just have that broadcasting as well and it at least allows me to browse the internet decently well.
I need to know how I can fix this situation. There are about 7-8 devices connected and I need some way to get me at least stable ping (for gaymen). Better network speeds would be nice too (at 8mbps tops right now).
What router should I look for? And how can I go about replacing the default Comcast Router/Modem. It is the kind that supports telephony and has a battery backup. I would be willing to spend up to $300 on equipment if it can give me stable ping with around 20mbps of network speed.
The Zenbook 3 is thinner, smaller and lighter than the 12" Macbook.
Has full Intel i7, none of this Core M crap, up to 16GB RAM, 1TB nvme SSD while having 9+ hours battery life.
