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.
NBN/Speed test thread?
Last couple of threads seemed bretty good so here goes
Paying for 50mbit Fixed wireless and i get speeds like this from 4pm-10pm
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.
what the fuck happened to firefox? happened to see this on their website about some lady saying not to feed trolls? why are there no good browser?

With bezels almost as thin as the G6, why wasn't anyone talking about this?
Was one hell of a beasty phone when released
This is the perfect frame for a phone. I'm still rocking my G3, even though it lags a little here and there it's still a great phone. I hope LG goes back to the G3 and just remakes it with upgraded hardware.
This thread is for the discussion of NyaaPantsu (pantsu.cat), a free (FOSS) torrent indexer, and other nyaa alternatives.
The aim of this project is to write a fully featured nyaa.se replacement in golang that anyone will be able to deploy locally or remotely.
>Why is Pantsu down/error 502?
Most likely because the team is deploying changes. Wait for a bit and refresh the page. It should be mostly stable now.
>Stat scraper is probably up again
>PantsuDev is back from vacation
>Kilo is still a fag
General updates on the site
>RSS feeds fixed
>Performance issues fixed
>Python uploading script
>Torrent file generation
>More frontend fixes
>Editing and deleting torrents
>Public mod log
>Language flags like anidex
>Customizable mascots by URL
>DB clean up
As for the coming weeks
>Improve scrapers to scrape more sites
>Move db dumps to just nginx to prevent any issues/corruption

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.
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?
Old thread: >>61784776
What are you working on, /g/?
Chrome is the most popular browser by a lot. How did Google convince the normies use it instead of the browsers that come with their computers?
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.
Why isn't GNU/Linux a desktop dominant yet?
Is it just me, or adwcleaner 7 detects far less than its predecessor? Old versions don't seem to work after this one was released
How do we redeem this man? How do we make sure he wasn't fired in vain?
The lynchmob and the media are all bleeding heart feminists who will crucify anybody who disagrees with them in the slightest.
His career is toast.
Just like that guy who lost his job because some absolute cunt tweeted about how TRIGGERED and OFFENDED she was over him making a "dongle" joke.
Found a old T60 in the trash. Seems to be working just fine all needs is a SSD/HDD
Whats some things to do with this thing?
>bought an R9 290 in 2013 for $415
>friend's graphics card died today
>check on google to see prices of my card
What the fuck happened?
