How the fuck do you guys stand using Java? I have to use Java for my programming course but i already broke my fingers due to its verbosity.
Almost threw out the computer when i tried to port my C SDL game to java, number of code lines trippled.
Are there any non verbose graphics/multimedia libraries for java?
Are my speeds shit?

Do proprietary compilers inject botnets into our binarys at compile time? I mean you can analyze small ones but not bigger ones. Imagine every .exe is a botnet and big companys like antivir actually ship botnets instead of antiviruses.
Just think about it
Java could be botnet free due to its easy decompilation
But compilers like msvc could produce botnet binarys every minute worldwide
of course. the intel and msvc compilers insert weaknesses to all crypto graphic functions so while they appear secure in design and implementation actual binaries produced can be backdoored easily. this is why truecrypt had a successful audit but the NSA can still break into truecrypt containers if needed as it was compiled with MSVC
Why do switches do not have IP adress when in a private network. CS Homework
Am I the only person who thinks 1440p is a small stopgap and will be obsolete in a years time due to 4k monitors becoming cheaper and 2016 gpu potential being able to handle games at 4k60?
I need a reason to upgrade my 1080p monitor but I just can't find a good enough reason to go 1440p.
>4K too won't last for long, at least not in gaming.
It'll become the new 1080p. Basically the bare bones standard. Consoles will probably be able to achieve 4k30 when the next gen comes out 2 years and midrange gpus will target good 4k performance.
Any higher resolution will be for the hardcore. I can see 4k being the standard for a long time.
Whats the cheapest way I can keep my ativity from being tracked online by my ISP and the NSA? Is Tor still safe? Or should I just buy a VPN like everyone else.
Is there any real difference?
Did I do good? The bubble wrapped items are LG blueray and a WD black 2tb hd, I have another of the same card already in another PC that I use for work/gaming, any advice is appreciated, thanks.
last thread died right after I posted so let's get a new one rolling. reveal your power levels /g/!
It was exciting as I was building my PC and making changes but now I sort of feel an obligation to post
Am I a douche wanting good microphone technology for teamspeak?
If you truely want good sound, you need a boom mic and a boom mic operator. Or are you too poor for good sound?
Not necessarily. An average condenser microphone and a few noise reduction filters through Audition will do.
I use a USB Rock Band microphone mounted on a £10 arm/clamp and a £5 pop screen and get fantastic sound for Teamspeak/Voice overs.

Since looks like win 10 will never stop being spyware and my 5 years old windows 7 install is so fucked up that I can only use 2 of my 10 USB ports and I need to chant ancient dead gods spells to plug any device I must format this thing and do a clean W7 install
What is the best way to do this to restore my stuff with ease?
I have everything on a 500 GB SDD and my other drives are just stored shit and I have a 2TB external drive for backups, so I could do it manually but maybe some shit was released in this 5 years to help with it
