Poorfag here currently thinking about buying the Logitech G502 mouse or a version of it. It looks good and has more than 2 buttons which I've been looking for but the mousewheel looks like shit.
Would /g/ recommend this mouse? It costs more than I probably should spend on a mouse but for how often I use my computer I'm willing to spend it.

so, you admit you're dumb for not falling for it twice, but three times?
Even i learned my lesson with razer after the second time they failed within a year.
Let me recommend Zowie here. Do whatever.
I am learning Haskell from first principles and started studying Lambda Calculus. I'm learning useful features such as currying, beta reductions, etc. Wondering how useful knowing Lambda Calculus will be when I finally dive into Haskell.
Thanks brother. I am familiar with mathematical logic, so I'm progressing through my studies in Lambda-C fairly quickly. I've studied recursion theory from computability w.r.t Turing's work but this is the first time I've touched Lambda Calculus. I love this stuff bro.
Haskell doesn't use regular Lambda calculus, it uses System F, which is polymorphic.
Not as much as you think. If you want to learn Haskell, then learn it. If you want to learn a theoretical basis for expressing formal computation, then read up on the Lambda calculus.

do you still use firefox or any of the variants /g/?
I kinda need a portable firefox to run a couple userscripts that don't fukken work on firefox

This is what technology has become.
You know, the concept behind those buttons are not bad if:
A. We were allowed to program it with whatever the fuck we want to order.
B. The selection of said items was much better and with better quantities and not like "you have to order 4 cases of shit when you only need 1".

Why mpv-android doesn't work on my nexus7 device?
Should I install codecs or similar shits?
What's the argument for having the latest smartphone again? I used to own the latest flagship models. Now I have an $80 5" phone that can handle any app and has plenty of screen space. So what's the point of buying a new $600 phone or getting jewed into a 2yr contract?
I guess people just like wasting money or something. I'm still using a $40 lg volt I got shortly after black friday last year. Only regret is I got a 64GB mSD card instead of a 128GB one.
If I do upgrade I'm limiting my budget to $100.
You probably own a smartphone
unless you're a self obsessed prick take a few pictures only once every couple of weeks and probably browse the internet in those rare situations a laptop is not around but that's pretty much it
My question for you is why have people fallen for the smartphone trap when you don't even use half the features it provides or use it so rarely that it's not worth it?
<- Why not go back to these strictly functional devices and reclaim those hours lost staring into social media and do something productive?
Theoretically would it be possible to generate every single possible jpg that is 300x300 and go through them until we find one that shows something cool like taylor swift naked?
You'd probably have to make it greyscale only and do some sort of optimisation so you don't generate images that aren't anywhere close but would it be possible?
sure but you'll have to go through billions of images and have good randomness which computers are bad at.
You won't be able to achieve it on your home pc, easier would be to hack her phone or photoshop her onto a naked body.
But really Taylor Swift looks like an old hag.
Is it possible? Yes.
Is it feasible? No.
The algorithm as you're describing, if it took, say, 1 microsecond to evaluate if the image is interesting or not, would not be finished even if was started at creation of universe.
Interesting fact: Instagram keep all of its info inside a single JSON string and keeps it on the site, and you can easily crawl the site and parse it. I wrote this literally today in Java.

Did you experience this much growing up /g/? Not just toolbars, but parents doing dumb shit on their computer and blaming it on you
What should I buy with this? I own pretty much every app I want
Start getting into games with microtransactions
Also how long did it take you to get that much? I keep getting $0.10~$0.20 surveys now as apposed to a few weeks ago when it was $0.50
>Macbooks are overpriced
>Ok, show me a similarly priced laptop with the same specs or better. Reminder that $1300 rMBPs are light, have a 2560x1600 retina display, 8GB RAM, outstanding battery life, NVMe SSDs and the best build quality and support in the business
