Salutations and Felicitations my dudes.
I require your aid in finding a fucking cool back-lit keyboard
My budget is about $40
Bit of a issue, I got a virus on my toshiba satellite c50 I get an error message when I start it up and it won't factory reset like, it just stops at 3%, does anybody know how to fix it? I would like to have the files but not necessary.
Beginning of the end finally of this consumerized technology hell that we've endured under Apple?
Not really. Apple may finally go bankrupt in 2-4 years even with the iphone 7 but it doesn't mean they won't be replaced. Maybe x86 windows phones will take over apple's "muh logo" and no expandable memory business strategy.
that doesnt even look like a significant drop, im pretty sure apple will exist for the rest of our lives pham
How can anyone prefer iOS?
I have an old Dell Inspiron N5040 with a dead hard drive.
Is it worth fixing? I upgraded the ram to 8GB some time ago, but I've no real need for it, and I have to get a new work laptop in a few months anyways. I'd have to use the only laptop drive I have, which I'm using for my main rig right now (because I'm a cheap fuck and don't want to buy another)
>pic related, it's the laptop
Is linked list the most pointless data structure?
How will they ever recover?

how did you guys make it through university?
i started at the age of 19 with information science / media informatics.
had no motivation at all didnt go there often / at all.
started different majors because i was taking too long and couldnt finish the first ones.
now i am 24 starting information science and it is pretty much my last shot because i have high student loans.
I like computer science and cant imagine not sitting infront of a computer for my 9to5 in the future. i just seem to lack the motivation to go through with it and go to university every day for...

You're talking about computer work for the rest of your life and you aren't even willing to do three years?
It's too easy just to say that I sat down and just did it. That isn't the whole story anyway as I had a rocky and, ultimately, unfulfilling time at University largely because I constantly procrastinated hence my grades plummeted as my course progressed. I did graduate but with a less-than-satisfying mark but only a hair's breadth above disgraceful.
I attended everything on the timetable. Everything: lectures, seminars (or, rather, where they gave answers to the worksheets), workshops (where they gave help for worksheets but I always used it as time allocated 100% to worksheets), labs, etc.
My attendance record was 97% overall and I have no idea why 3% was missing.
The way you manage is that you get yourself into a productive routine. Or, at least, that's what I'd advise myself if I could redo it.
Get your time, even your spare time, structured and a minimum set amount of hours doing uni work. Get ALL the books from the reading lists out of the library (I got shouted at right at the end of my course by one of the lecturers for only having taken out one book and otherwise relied on his lectures).
Make friends on your course as soon as possible: the later you leave it, the more you'll be viewed as an outsider (friend-group-wise) and the less help you'll get from other people.
I made the mistake of wanting to """ironman""" through my course friendless and, by the time I realised how helpful it was sitting down with other people and talking/working through problems... yeah.
I did a Particle Physics degree but it should be just as helpful. I'm out of time.
>The way you manage is that you get yourself into a productive routine.
That's it. I'm the laziest motherfucker on this planet but routine is all you need. The first few weeks are hard but then it's getting easier

when will we get a proper stallman that actually holds to his principles?

I thought that this horrible fashion was already passing. So post "improvements" in technology.
Is there anything more pointless than VR?
Reality that's virtual
Or virtual virtual
Since reality is reality
Why is my i5 from 5+ years ago not as good as the ones out today?
It has basically the same clock speed and number of processors as the ones coming out today.
Think of it like improving how powerful each Ghz is.
Higher IPC but lower clockspeed can overcome lower IPC and high clockspeed.
Intel has been pretty consistent in giving ~5-10% IPC improvements per generation. So by now even at the same clock speed, you will likely be a good 20-30% slower, depending on what you're doing.
