I really like scapping from the bubble.
Does /g/ prefer Python?
Not really, no. The past few weeks I've been using it I've really been hit hard by how slow it can be, and the lack of things like tail call elimination amongst other things.
It's fun to use though.
Prefer it to matlab anyday. Its a great scientific prototyping. It can be a bit slow for large simulations though.
Is there any good reason 4chan does not offer markdown for advanced post formatting?
1) Intentional restriction. 4chan doesn't need any text formatting. It wouldn't add to the content, which is meant to be fairly simple and disposable by design. Hence post length limits, auto saging, and limited number of threads per board
2) It would only be useful for shit posting. Even spoilers are cancerously abused.
3) Markdown is gross.
Are there any cheap, decent HBA cards like the PERC H200 reflashed to IT mode? I'm looking for something with at least 8 ports (>= 2x SFF-8087/8088), preferably one internal and one external.
Also, any suggestions for cheap 4-bay hotswap 3.5" SATA HDD enclosures that use a SFF-8087/8088 port?
I want to expand my storage (and passthrough the HBA card to an ESXi VM), but I made some rather poor choices with the case for my server/NAS
anyone using this? is it worth it?

Do you need an SSD for later OSX versions to not have shit boot times?
General MBP thread. Did you manage to get Windows to boot in EFI mode on your older hardware without horrible issues?
I am looking for a decent, small-sized Android smartphone (around 3.5 inch screen), for about 100$. Any recommendations?
Hey guys, I'm looking to upgrade my GPS so I'm thinking of going for the R9 390. However I'm worried about bottlenecking it with my CPU. Would my i5 3550k deal with the 390 or is it worth upgrading my CPU too?
What radio station does /g/ usually listen to?
What is your favorite program to listen to radio on Linux/Win/OsX
Apps linux fags miss the most.
Dear /g/, im moving into ma new university apartment next year (potentially), the apartment is lovely with just been newly referbed etc... however it doesn't not have an Ethernet connection outlet, however the wifi speed is 100mb.
I play many video games, most of them using internet connection (Dota, CSgo, league). will this wifi speed be a problem without an Ethernet connection?

Is an powerline allowed?
A good wifi card should be fine
Wifi can be a bit more unstable with lots of users, and might add a tiny bit more ping. Probably not horrible though if it's a professionally done wifi network. Wifi at my school is great, even though everyone is on their laptop on a single cisco access point per room.
Getting a strong wifi card with antennas might help get the best out of it.
>many music streaming services stream 128kbps audio files at a MAXIMUM and oftentimes lower than that
Why is this allowed?
even with the right equipment most people aren't able do distinguish 128 mp3 to the source. They think they do but never did an abx test, so there is no real reason to stream higher.
Who are these many?
Spotify, google both do 320, pandora is the worst at 192.
If you care about high quality get tidal.
Also, because most people can't tell the difference, or even care.

Guys need some advice. What are the best ways to learn a new programming language? Which one should I start with ? How can I make money with it ? Please advise
I think windows 10 is the best windows ever (honestly, not shilling here). But there is one BIG problem: the fucking spywares/telemery
Can someone explain how to disable the whole botnet thing so I can use windows 10 without the botnet knowing everything about me?
There is no "botnet" in windows 10. It is the most secure operating system on the market today. All the spyware bs is made up and way overblown. Windows 10 doesn't spy on people any more than Facebook and Google do. I think it's pretty funny how people cry about Microsoft wanting to gather a small amount of info about their computer while they go ahead and upload all their info on social media.
