Hello /g/.

In a month or so I'm going to start my first year of Computer Engineering and Communications at uni and I read that I need a notebook to run some programs, take notes and stuff like that.

I'm asking for experiences from people who studied/are studying CE: what kind of notebook would I need?
How much did you use it during your university career? What programs would I need to run on it? Also, I'm guessing Windows right?
At home I got a powerful desktop so I'd only use the notebook for university related stuff.

Thanks.

Old hfc network, just want higher upload but will inevitably lose download. I also get full speed all the time even arvo/night. Will eventually have to go nbn though, might stick with Telstra in the hopes they're not cheaping out on backhaul like most isps.

I'll be 29 at the end of this month.

I feel like my "youth" period has only 1 year left.

Is it worth it to devote and rush my 29th year of life to focusing on learning more about computer science and IT (on my own), to the point of trying to get a job in it down the line?

I always super behind when people exchange programming and CS terms around me. I feel like there's an opportunity for work there and a way to understand a lot about the world that I don't know yet. I feel like CS will continue to be in high demand for the next 30 years.

Like I know there's 30 million Pajeets graduating with bullshit IT degrees from India every week, but I feel like if you know what you're doing that there's a ton of opportunities out there for you.

Scrap that. Just give up and get out of the industry while you can, op.

Is this a stupid idea?

The Brave browser has all this adblocking shit built in but if you want you can choose to establish a monthly allowance to donate to websites you visit based on time spent (though you can just set specific amounts to specific sites per month if you wanted)

The whole ecosystem makes sense sure but the challenge will be if they can get all the different players to start adopting it. Not sure where they are on their roadmap atm but I don't think they have any advertisers yet do they?

Internet Explorer sucked. Lacked a lot features andHTML standards. Edge came too late. Firefox looks and feels outdated. People who switch from PC to Mac stick with Chrome because they don’t want to try Safari and are used to Chrome.

They bundled it with every popular software. They also used banner ads on popular websites to brainwash normies that it'll run better in Chrome.
