HAHAHAHAHAHA! LINUX AND OPEN SOURCE SECURITY LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE WINS ONCE AGAIN!
thats 'cause is open source, cant say much about windows do you? guess theres more security on propietary software... kek!
>>hurr durr my propietary software more secure than your loonix
Hello /g, I have a question for you.
I got an iMac G5 pc, for free.
>No os discs
>still has old profile on it, with pics n shit
I'm sorry, but unless it's an Intel model, it is literally useless.
If it indeed IS a PPC machine, install Gentoo (not kidding, seriously, a Linux Distro will work infinitely better than the outdated OSX) and make a server out of it or some shit
Daily reminder that docks are a fad from the early 2000's and if you're still using one, you should consider killing yourself.
>planning on building a new PC this summer
>see all the news about getting cucked out of using new CPUs for any OS but Windows 10
Is it still worth it? All my parts are from 2008 so I think it's time for an upgrade but if it means having to use Botnet 10 or being forced to use Linux and losing all my Windows programs I'm not even going to bother.
Yeah, you will have to use windows 10.
But windows 7 has received spyware updates as well, so it's pointless.
Also, most games will be using windows 10 as a minimum requirement.
Solution: Use windows 10 with this
And remove the tinfoil hat.
Take off your tinfoil hat and just use windows 10. It's excellent software. stop complaining about privacy in a corrupt world where crime is rampant.
I bet you're afraid of police officers even though you're not committing crime.

Is there any point in getting a dedicated sound card?
I kinda want an Optical In for hooking up my PS3, but it's not enough to make me buy one.
Is the audio quality any better?
Currently using an integrated ALC892 and ATH-TAD400 .
i use a usb audio interface since i record stuff with my mic, and need little to no latency, but i'd use one regardless since you can plug optical in some of them too, plus they have better resale value than those shitty internals.
If you don't hear any hissing or weird digital noises from your integrated audio and it's enough to drive whatever you plug into it, I don't think a dedicated card is going to make much of a difference.
If you want to get a sound card anyways, consider buying an external USB one; it's easier to use with more devices and potentially less prone to picking up interference from other parts.
Any recommendations for an external one?
Preferably under $100 and I'd really want the optical in.
I'm actually quite happy with the integrated one, but not having to dick around with cables every time I feel like turning on the console would be pretty nice. Line-In picks up too much interference sadly.
Is the i7 6700k worth the extra couple hundred dollars more than the i5 6600k??
I fried my 6 year old cpu yesterday and it's time for a new computer
Which is better: unreal engine or unity?
Unity has a bigger community, so you're likely to find more documentation and resources for it than UE4, which only became easily-accessible somewhat recently.
It's not likely that any indi will come close to pushing the limits of either engine, so don't worry about it, either one can do anything you'd want to do with them.
i'd wait for vulkan to come out and just develop on it with a team of some kind. unity and ue4 have nothing on vulkan combined with bullet,opensubdiv,ptex,openvdb and yebis.
Paratroopers might collide when paratrooping due to shit vision. Furthermore, they need to land as close to the target as possible.
The information they have: approximate height, approximate wind speed (prior to jumping they gather information on speeds on different evels) and maybe more but i dont remember.
What do you suggest to do/build/write to overcome the problem? All means are acceptable.
Large scale paratroop drops became obsolete even before wwii ended. Nowadays, they are mainly used by special forces. They have steerable chutes to go in the general desired direction. SF troops are also hyper fit and can quickly make their way on land to their targets if they landed away from the dropzone.

>TomsGuide "Best Wi-Fi Routers 2016" - Shill edition
The best router is literally one with good hardware that is also easy to flash openwrt onto.
On that subject, I need a router with 4 port gigabit switch, wan port and wireless that has good hardware and is easy to flash openwrt onto. Any suggestions? I am thinking of a newer revision of the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND because I currently have the Rev1 which was easy to flash openwrt onto but the newer revisions have better hardware.
The lord is holding a lecture on "A free digital society" next week. What question should I ask him?
"do you not see the inherent hypocrisy in using nonfree CC-ND licenses for essays on your website when you would condemn anyone doing the same for software? or do you just ignore it?"

WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU NOT TEACHING PEOPLE TO NAME VARIABLES SOMETHING THAT REFLECTS WHAT THEY ARE FOR
we did that too if i remember right
if its a basic programming class i think its to help people grasp the idea that that name will refer to an instance of the data type. you would be surprised how hard most people finds programming insanely hard at first, as well as how many of them just cant learn it. in my college it was hilarious.

I'm going to buy me a new phone in a few hours.
Do I buy Sony Xperia Z5 or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, or a whole third option?
I'm looking for a good camera, longevity and speed
If these are your only options, S6 Edge Plus. I have one, and it's pretty good. Z5 probably wins out in longevity, but I'm not much of a fan of Sony software.
If you have other options, wait. Wait until the Snapdragon 820 is in a few phones, and puck up one of those.
