WTF is VLC trying to tell me?
Is there a bigger youtube hack than eli the computer guy?
So does using these cheap chargers that you find in stores actually damage your phone? Do they just charge slower because they aren't as high quality and poorly made?
a bad wall-to-USB can fuck with your phone. If the capacitors on the inside are of low quality, the screen's sensitivity gets impacted. So basically, if you use a shitty charger, it'll charge, but your phone will spaz out at you once in a while.
I want to design and build an 8-bit microcomputer as an intellectual exercise.
I want to brush up on my electronics chops.
Does /g/ have any experience or advice on what CPU I should design it around?
I've narrowed it down to the Zilog Z80, the MOS 6502, the Motorola 6809, or the Intel 8080.
I'm leaning toward the Z80 or the 6502 since their still in production.
>8080 or maybe even 8051
No longer in production.
Better 6502 because Apple, Atari and Commodore all used it and it is very well documented.
It's also very simple and easy to understand since it was designed for appliances like washing machines.
You guys will discuss anything that is remotely technology, so here, discuss tech stores. (Pic related, work place before opening)
fry's is nice but holy shit the one in sunnyvale has so many indians with thick accents working there
It took me a couple seconds after they stopped to talking to try to process what they said and I still ended up saying "excuse me?" enough times to the point that it was annoying
I had 2 BSOD's in my new Xeon build in two days. Both times it was running at 35 c or so.
What does it mean?
It's easy they said, it's like legos they said.
But no, no one told me about the fucking log.

fucking pleb, real patricians think and program in machine code
Would it be possible for me to implement anti-cheat on an online test?
Something that lets me know if a student googles a question, or something that lets me see their screen when they took the test?
I have a class full of suspected cheaters for the netcad tests, and I'm kinda peeved about it.
I remember back in like 07, the teachers in my hs had programs they used like that, the board employed it corporation wide. You could only see your students screens though, worked anywhere in the building.
What image viewer is /g/ rolling with in 2016?
It's reasonably fast, has a shitton of (actually pretty good) editing functions via plugins and gets the job done. I just wish it had an option to "repair" gifs that have a wrong frame rate set.
Thoughts on the Nexus 6p?
So I was just wondering if anyone knows why bestbuy has a monopoly on the Reference Geforce GTX 970 card. I bought one there shortly after they came out and the price is still the same now. Its the only place you can get them. They probably have some kind of contract with Nvidia. B.S. imho. I want to grab a second one when the price comes down but that might be a while I guess.
@snek that includes internet shopping. They don't sell them anywhere else unless they are refurbed or used. Ya I figured it was a contract, just wanted to comment and say its pretty shitty.
Always wanted to learn something in the best way possible? A good, informative book is always the tried-and-true method. Ask about what you want to know, and through literature you shall receive.
