Any performance laptops that DON'T have these neon "I AM A HUGE FAGGOT PLEASE RAPE MY FACE" tribal douche swirls?
Why are square shaped pixels so widely used when triangle shaped pixels are much better? Pic related.
Should I drop my GTX 970 for a RX 480?
Dear Jen-Hsun Huang,
That is all.

I been using Klavaro to get rid of my nasty wasd habit. Any other applications I should try out /g/entoo?
BSD vs Linux
What are the advantages and disadvantages of both?
>better hardware support than BSD
>less setup for most distributions, it can be easier
>more true to Unix origin
>simple, though not easy
>no systemd nonsense
>no pulse-audio nonsense
>generally better thought out and put-together than Linux distributions
so /g/, how is it?
I had one for 6 weeks but ended up returning it due to issues with sleep not working and the whole system going mental when I undocked from the eGPU in the keyboard. Both are/were known issues with no fix at the time. Hopefully they are fixed now but I have no idea.
I was happy to get rid of it by the end of all my troubles but before they really got to me I loved the machine. The screen is sensational. Keyboard is better than a macbook pro but not as nice as a modern thinkpad. trackpad is almost as good as what apple can do but still doesnt feel quite as natural. The screen is fucking gorgeous though. I havent seen a better screen.
I ended up switching to a thinkpad x1 carbon which has been perfect to be fair.
i wish microsoft had actually given us a proper fucking laptop though. not this detachable shit that just causes more problems. they have some fucking fetish about tablets and touch when I DONT FUCKING WANT IT. Just give me a Microsoft ThinkPad ffs
Microsoft's aversion to practicality is puzzling. They're so close to making a real actual rMBP killer but their hardon for tablets is too uncontrollable.
As a current Mac user I might even buy an official MS laptop if it were a proper laptop. I like my 9.7" iPad Pro better for tablet stuff so the hybrid crap is just an annoyance and handicap to me.
NEET on summer break here. I've finally gotten sick of playing CSGO all day, I've got the whole rest of the summer and a lot of adderall, and I've always felt like my coding skills were lackluster and half-assed, lazily learned mostly from mandatory high school and college classes and copied from smarter classmates.
So I want to learn. Here's the thing though, I'm the kind of person that if they're not wholly interested in something, even if I have other reasons for wanting to learn it, my brain's not going to be able to put forth the...

Oh and forgot to mention, some applied modern algebra-type courses as well. Like I said, I wanna go hard & fast into it, so if that includes related math fields and concepts, bring it on nigger
Go write a program that downloads all post images in a 4chan thread, and saves them to a directory of your choice. In C. No external libraries other than C standard libraries and basic network sockets.
That's your assignment. Learn whatever you need to learn to get it done, no excuses. Google the fuck out of the problem to learn the relevant technologies, but don't look at programs that do the exact same thing. Return when it works.
How is your favorite language better than Haskell?
>protip: it isn't
It doesn't take over 1 gigabyte to install because it's actually well designed so that all the libraries don't need to ship in three different copies like Haskell's dynamic, static and repl versions. While at it, it can create completely independent images depending on nothing, embedding the entire language within.
Just 11 megs.
Guess what it is.
A hacker is someone who enjoys playful cleverness—not necessarily with computers. The programmers in the old MIT free software community of the 60s and 70s referred to themselves as hackers. Around 1980, journalists who discovered the hacker community mistakenly took the term to mean “security breaker.”
Please don't spread this mistake. People who break security are “crackers.”
Why do so many people spend so much time and energy hating on this faggot?
i think you're spending too much time on 4chan and extrapolating this one awful shithole to the rest of the world. generally it's a small group of people - people who just like being contrarian - that hate on him.
honestly, why do you care though? even if you were elon musk, why would you care what some people on 4chan thought about you? is any internet-enabled group on the planet less consequential to you?
What is it about murican culture that they obsess over CEOs? This one being the CEO of a car company no less.
Hello all. I have a 160g ipod classic gen 5. i have about 80 or 90 gb of music on my ipod. but it says there is no music. when you highlight settings, it says 53.2g free of 160g. but when you highlight music it says no music. Anybody know whats goin on?
I'm going balls deep /g/
I have a slow as shit X120e with the E-240. With Windows 7 and allegedly the lightest browser I can find, K-Meleon, it still can't even play 360p YouTube videos smoothly. It plays 1080p local videos just fine, so I would imagine 360p YouTube should be no problem. What should I change?
I'm locked out of the BIOS and SecureBoot is on so I'm stuck with Windows 7.
Does that browser properly support hardware acceleration? I'm thinking that for some reason its using the CPU to decode the video instead of passing it off to the hardware video decoder.
It could also be that YouTube is sending you VP9 video and that processor does not have support for VP9: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unified_Video_Decoder#UVD_3
If VP9 is the issue I'm not sure of the best way to fix that, might have to stream the video with some other player instead of doing it in a browser or download it with another program.
Right click a video and select "Stats for Nerds" you should get a popup telling you what it is.
