What should I do with the money I'm making from my internship?
get yourself some decent interview clothes and shoes.
good mattress, good comfortable daily shoes.
put a little towards your loans
invest in stuff to further your career after your internship if things don't work out.
Learn how to invest in the market & buy some shares around September.
If you manage to grow your investments around 1 mil, you can basically just retire and live off the dividends.
I was helping my dad go through his old computers today. For some reason, rather than being pleasantly nostalgic for machines I used when I was a kid, I was just depressed that they were still running and still had filenames I recognized.
How much emotion do you invest in the computers of your childhood, /g/? Do you hesitate to throw them out?
I didnt have any computers in my childhood. I wasnt allowed to use any computers except for things at school. I didnt have a computer until i bought one freshman year (I'm 19 btw.) This wasnt because of poorfagness, its was just that my dad is weird.
I could only use them under direct parental supervision, which was basically just dad reading car magazines in the kitchen while I played Close Combat.
I don't get it, I get nostalgic to the point of tears when I stumble on an old swing or trail or book from when I was a kid, but old computers bother me.
Is there even a way to make a city launch off the surface of the planet breaking gravity and entering space? Is there even enough fuel left on the planet to use in the rockets to perform such a task? Would we have to use some kind of thermal nuclear fusion rocket? Maybe an array of them? I know it would depend on the size of a city but lets assume its big enough to hold 150000 people and supply them food grown on hydrochambers with the aquatic ecosystem biodome. If it were possible, what would it take, and do we even have the ability? Would it require tech we can't even concieve of yet?
Thinking about getting the SE, I'm coming from Android and am used to 5-5.5in phones but the SE didn't seem too uncomfortable to switch to when I tried it at the store. What does /g/ think of the SE?
Hey guys I clicked on a link that I think was Cp but I immediately closed it, how much am I?
I am taking an introduction to java class in my Highschool, My final project i have to create a text based game, it needs to include If statements, looping, objects and some calculations. Basically the most basic things in programming, but i need some ideas and some help on what to make
It's 11 PM, do you know where your Unix is?
System V and BSD are fun.
Hey /g/, Is it possible to use the graphics card for computational processes other than graphics? Like to do parallel processing? Where can I learn more, any advice? Thanks ahead of time. Pic unrelated.

Just went up in price on Amazon.
What gives? Are they just selling the last few stock?
I told you to buy one while they were still cheap.
They've been discontinued since 2015 and they're the last HP Saturn platform calculators that will ever be made.
Even the HP Prime series can't hold a candle to the 49 series.

floating windows make me sick. i3 is ok, but you need like 3 or 4 different forked extensions to customize the bar properly. i tried awesome today and it had some good things about it, like static workspaces with notifiers when they're occupied, but it has very strange defaults and i dont know if i want to stick with it long enough to change it all.
what do you nerds use?
i3, i3blocks and i3lock-fancy
Once you have a decent conf file (and some decent blocklets) you don't need that much.
What do you want to put on the bar that you can't do with those three?
Go confirmed for retards
>The key point here is our programmers are Googlers, they’re not researchers. They’re typically, fairly young, fresh out of school, probably learned Java, maybe learned C or C++, probably learned Python. They’re not capable of understanding a brilliant language but we want to use them to build good software. So, the language that we give them has to be easy for them to understand and easy to adopt. -- Rob Pike
Go is pretty neat. You aught to try it Anon. It will only take you two hours to learn it and to begin getting productive with it.
Even if you end up tossing the sodding language soon afterwards, you can still take away some ideas that you can try to apply to your regular programming activities.
Seriously, it takes about 2 hours to get productive in it, and there's isn't a terrible amount to learn.
I don't get it. Is he saying that just because they are right out of school with little knowledge, that instead of letting them learn through experience to just give them an easy language and never challenge them?
Here we go..
We constantly beg for quality threads with quality discussion, so I'll take the initiative and start one.
I'm a moderate linux user. I'm about to install gentoo, and actually customize it this time. I want to know should I use Systemd or OpenRC ?
I know Systemd is significantly faster, but it still gets flamed. Is this just the geizers of IT bitching to stay relevant or is it actually fucked?
I still use SysV, because I'm on Slackware.
Who gives a shit about boot times though, doesn't everyone just use sleep/hibernate these days? I do.
I've never used SystemD, but I really like flat text files running as scripts like V, and apparently D takes a different approach, so I probably won't like it compared to OpenRC.
