Any reading or good sources of info on how people make products addictive? E.g smart phone games, services like Facebook, even iPhones and other similar products are built to try and get users to play with them idly as much as possible
Is there even a "discipline" to do with this type of thing (outside of muh psychology)?
I'm also wondering this as well considering I have an app in dev.
Who said it's free? Obviously anyone sharing the information without financial immediate financial gain is getting something out of it.
Ok this is the coolest setup in history.

Darth Vader would be jealous :^)
why is technology so fucked up?
technology made carrot top into this... monster
Ahhhhh yes... it's a hot summer night. At least where I live. This always reminds me of better times.
The intimes when I was a kid. Me and my best friend would play games like Ultima VII until my parents were asleep in those summer nights and then we'd sneak outside just because we wanted to see what our town looked like at night... and maybe find some monsters to fight or some dungeons to explore.
This came to my mind after seeing pic related. My thought was that some people think it's "computer + winter = comfy" while for me it's more like "computer + summer = comfy". Or maybe "computer + summer = adventure". I can't really decide.
Anyways, share your comfy computer memories of times you wish you could relive in this thread if you want to.

I think we can all agree with this assessment.
Yes and no.
Work for an independent development studio, I do graphics work and code monkey shit, so I have the "pleb tier" setup, but my right and left monitors are on quick release swivels.
I'm working on an online bullying site aimed at 13-17y old students in Germany.
It will be school orientated meaning people will be able to create anonymous roasting/bullying sites for their own school to have discussions about people at the same school etc.
Is my page layout and design normie and bully friendly enough, and how is the idea itself?
Yep, I will go for some kind of offshore hosting service in russia or some third world cunt. Hosting in Germany is a pretty bad idea.
And if my site ever gets popular, I can't wait for people to start killing themselves.
Define industry. Software Engineering has a pretty broad reach these days.
Don't wait until graduation. Get an internship now at a place you plan on working full time at after graduation. Learn whatever it is they use, and learn it well. That means more than just learning a core language, but also the frameworks and other technologies they use. Start work on projects that resemble that tech stack of theirs and git gud.
Java/C++/C# won't matter if you care about things like 'reward and efficiency' because unless you're doing embedded systems you're probably going to be working on some mature projects that have long since passed such concerns where things like maintenance and implementing new features/libraries is what matters most. The differences between the languages won't mean a thing, it's the frameworks and environment around them that will start to matter.
its far easier than c,c++,c# or java and way more in demand. Chances are you'll get a low stress 9-5 if you go into web dev with great pay and have a really easy time finding a jb too.
If you decide to try getting a C#, Java or C++ job you could end up doing far more difficult, stressful and time consuming work with pretty much the same pay. This is especially true of C and C++
>C++ is the most difficult to master but the reward and efficiency that comes with it is unbeatable.
you're substantially less efficient as a programmer when writing C++ compared to C# and Java
This thread is about the appreciation of horology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch, clock, or other timepiece.

Well I'm glad I got some confirmation as I was really clueless but I really want to get into watches. I never really cared about them but now I feel strangely intrigued.
So I'll probably get the diver and dress Seiko and then save up for the "real deals".
Maybe I'll get a G Shock because I'm a very outdoor person too so having something really sturdy can hurt and they're not that expensive, right?
>install windows 10
>i can disable all the unnecessary Microsoft account and tracking stuff, much like i can disable siri botnet in hOmoSeX
>drivers auto detected and installed fast

So why you people hate Microsoft Windows 10?
So now that I can't use Chrome, what's the best browser?
And here's a question - if I use a Blink browser like Opera or Brave, does that still benefit Google (do they get data from it and stuff)?
What do you guys think about this vs the surface book or x360?
Any reason to avoid systemd?
So i got this prism n8 portable pc at a second hand store today. It powers on and the turbo light lights up. the screen looks like it may be burnt out but even an external vga monitor doesnt work. Im going to open it up and see if everything is connected.
Anything i should check or do? Also old tech thread.
In that case start taking it apart.
Keep the form factor, rewire the keyboard to a raspberry / arduino setup, dump the display for a 7" touchscreen off amazon or something.
Get a a small drone for the rest of the space and you've got yourself a small GCS.
Have fun modding your little helicopter control box, my friend
If you want help:

>State the budget for your build (and country if not the USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?

No i5 unless discounted
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - Only for 144hz
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games

ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
