Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've seen some shit as well, at the last job I worked at most of the project's old legacy code was written by some retired self taught coder who thought that it was the shit to write 3000 line functions in VB6 that pass all parameters by setting big scope variables and calling void functions calling void functions that read and alter them, and then copying and pasting the whole trainwreck into C# and tweaking it here and there until the compiler stopped complaining
That sounds even worse. It really is a big problem when you need to fix a specific issue. Today the clock hit 4 before I finished fixing all of it so tomorrow I will go back there, sit down, and continue dying inside.
I cannot understand how someone couldn't have the time to simply name their variables for what they are instead of just what they do.
Was code ever good?
Best music player for Windows? Foobar isn't my style.
Post antutu score.
What's the consenses on the Surface Pro 4?

Are you guys enjoying your bloat, ads, and botnet?
Shit, I was going to make a joke about it being 10mbs but then I checked their github. What the hell happened? How the fuck did they cut the installers to less than 2mb?
What does /g/ think about the oukitel k10000?
Also big battery phones appreciation thread.
Oukitel k10000 can give the user between 24-30 hours SoT per charge and will last the average user a week before needing to be recharged.
I wish this thin meme would end and they'd make devices with larger batteries.
All the 6000mAh phones are under 1cm thick, which is perfectly fine.
I had to get a case for my phone barrier it's too thin to hold easily, I'd rather that space went to a bigger battery.
What does /g/ think of vivaldi
Just watched a documentary about high frequency trading, how the fuck can we allow codemonkeys to control our financial market since the management tier doesn't understand what's even going on ? *sighs loudly*
The meek shall inherit the earth.
/t/echs Need advice...
bought this bag. Fits 13inch Laptop.
I'm a therapist and am beginning to use the Oculus Rift for therapy and research. Eventually i want an external graphics card so i don't have to lug a desktop to clients homes, the office and lab, so want a Thunderbolt port.
Was thinking Dell XPS 13, seems to cost a dickload though.
Any other ideas? >>> other than kill myself.
This is not /t/, and there's a special board for this >>>/wsr/ go there faggot
>I'm using the oculus rift for research
Yeah sure, research your moms basement
Just kill yourself already
Shit, that is one clean bag.
XPS13 is good.
Mac pro is... Well, 13 inches.
Razer makes a keen 13 inch.
Surface is not a terrible option, leaves a bit of room for something else.
>Leave me to my iPhone glorifying and saying BTFO and cuck a lot. We do REAL tech here.
I just bought a qnix qx2710 evo 2 and my computer is not recognizing it.
>GPU: sapphire 6950 w/ DVI-D dual link port
I have tried numerous things such as trying to boot my pc with only my qnix monitor connect, with no luck.
Does /g/ have any suggestions aside from trying a new cable/ gpu to test if the monitor is DOA?
When will it take off /g/?
This cable and port seem like a godsend, but no modern laptops use them. Im actually holding off purchasing a laptop until it has this and a firewire port.
Is the hype real, or should I purchase now instead?
You asked for modern laptops, I don't know POOP about your're unspecified requirements.
what os should i put on my bootable usb drive
Solve this faggots
Nvidia sells self-branded GPUs now on their web store.
The price seems reasonable, but not the cheapest.
Do you know who manufactures these self-branded GPUs?
daily reminder that if you care about customising you are a manchild with too much time on your hands
os x is the best operating system
Ubuntu is better. I don't even customize it - Unity is better than Apple's DE right out of the box. Firefox runs better on it, there's more Steam games and you often get better battery life on laptops with Ubuntu.
