real lightsabers when
Would make a magnificent tool if lightsaber technology were real.
If you were interested in woodworking, you wouldn't need sets of saws and drills anymore, you just use a lightsaber for everything. Just mount it onto tables for exact cuts. Hell, you could go out and cut down trees with it like a hot knife through butter.
RISC, CISC, VLIW, or EPIC.
Which is best and why?
What are some other options to explore?
CISC any day for just general pourpose aplications.
CISC + RISC coprocessing for high volume calculations
RISC for embeded devices
It's really only comes down to whatever you want to learn and for what you want to develop for.
Sorry this isn't a shitty bait thread that gets 300 replies in 30 minutes.
Bumping with bait.

Should I be ashamed?
Yes I can field strip an hp laptop of almost any kind or Toshiba in about ten minutes.
It's really not that hard just find a comprehensive manual or hardware diagram and presto. If it's your first time go slow, do not yank or pull on anything and in general be careful and it will go fine.
Say someone wanted to use no cell phone at all what would still be a good way to communicate? I was thinking pager and a homeline with voicemail and VOIP
good guy EVGA stepped me up to the superclocked ACX3.0 card (you can't get overclocked cards through the step up program) :^)

I found a Mac IIe on the street over a year ago, comes with monitor, 2 floppy disk drives the computer a a joystick. I tried plugging it in and turning it on but nothing appears to have happened... Thoughts?
Appears that some of the slots are empty... The rightmost one there has a card with some microprocessors, which is connected to the two disk drives. Am I missing some essential parts here?

How do you deal with performance anxiety during a programming interview?
Are algo interviews just a way to steal our jobs and give them to normies?
does the cpu/gpu have to constantly draw still imagery on the screen every frame i.e if you're just sitting at your desktop doing nothing or do the images stay on the monitor as is until something tells it to do otherwise? i assume it's the latter because of the nature of freezes/hangs, but i could be wrong
to not go into too much detail;
the gpu contains the contents of the screen (the pixels) in a segment of memory called the framebuffer, this framebuffer is drawn to the screen constantly (related to "refresh rate", which i imagine you're familiar with)
freezes/hangs occur elsewhere, and has to do with when software changes the contents of said framebuffer, if software stop updating the framebuffer, the image on-screen appears to stop, but the framebuffer is still being sent to the screen consistantly
if the gpu stops sending the framebuffer, even momentarily,...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
and to try to make an analogy;
imagine a camera pointed at a whiteboard
now imagine the camera is the display, and the whiteboard is the framebuffer
the camera is constantly sampling the whiteboard, and will mirror anything drawn on the board (by software)
if the person/software stops drawing to the board, that doesn't prevent the camera from sampling the board, even though the picture didn't change
How come /g/ shits on prebuilt PCs while having no problems with laptops? They're basically the same thing, except laptops give you even less freedom.
>no problems with laptops?
/g/ hates the following
-Non XPS Dell
-XPS Dell (500 charge cycles total rating)
-Post IBM Thinkpads
-Razer Laptops (sub genre of gayman laptops)
-Surface Pro's (not book, though that hinge is hilarious.
So your statement is basically retarded. /g/ hates everything. /g/ is not one person.
whats all this then.
I am planning to upgrade to a 6600k and I was wondering what are some good features that justify paying extra for a motherboard.
right now I am planning to buy this one just because I have always bought Asrock motherboards and it has pretty good reviews regarding overclocking.
this motherboard + Xeon E5 1230 v5
only motherboard that allows BCLK overclocking on v5 Xeons,and that Xeon is inexpensive and equals 6700K overclocked,1220 v3 is the i5 of the series
basically buying K-processors i promoting Intels monopoly,do not fall for the memes
