/g/ I just bought a 2017 MacBook Pro non touchbar with the base processor, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD.
It isn't even here yet and I already feel like I've made a terrible mistake. I got the most expensive headphones Apple offers for free for the current deal, they cost 300 bucks and I was going to sell them on eBay to get some money back. I have a desktop I built myself and I use and Android phone. I felt like I was losing touch with reality, so I sold my Thinkpad and the desktop is for sale. I was going to get the MacBook, then get an iPhone when it comes out and sell everything else. This was supposed to help me be a "normal" person again so I could focus on school and fitness instead of 4Chan, Gaymes, and muh superiority to Appletoddlers. But now I feel like I'm pretending to be someone else.
>tldr I bought some Apple shit for the second fucking time to try and be a normal person instead of weirdo nerd and now I'm having second thoughts.....................Pls help
Keep the desktop, just use your mac book for normie tier stuff and have your desktop be your autism box. The laptop and phone will be nice when you are out an people will see you but in the comfort of your own home you can be your autistic self with your desktop.
>don't mind me, just pirating this software
Anon, I got myself Ryzen 1600 and some DDR4 RAM, now, what is the best (and relavtively cheap) motherboard for AM4?

>8 years from now you'll meme ''why didn't you prevent this?''
Don't tell me I'm not trying to prevent this before everything is lost
RIP Linux, yet another great thing completely ruined by the Germans
well, he finally did it. Anon finally built that PC he always wanted after pimping and scrimping for a hard don long time. Please shit on it, comment-san and tell me what to do better
So I just got an ipad for work.
Want to put some movies on there to watch, but it says I have to sync them via itunes . A) fuck itunes i don't want to download that and B) i can't resync the ipad to a new library because I would lose some work apps.
What's the best way to do this? Never used an apple product before.
Any help appreciated Lads.
Why is this the comfiest distro, /g/?
Whats the browser with the absolute lowest RAM usage?
I have used Chrome and now i am using Vivaldi and both are fucking garbage with Ram.
Vivaldi right now is using like 400+mb with 3 tabs open
Any text-based browser, but you'd have to be willing to sacrifice a lot of functionality since a large part of the web is now graphically oriented.
its good on linux but botnet10 users report high usage i suspect ms poojet shenanigans
op if you want low ram use old FF builds like 4 or something
most browsers today use webkit-like engine and shit on ram
Prices will be more competitive and the old industry will die. Thoughts?

How the f does one change their user name using usermod with system dicks running in the background?
That's what I'm trying to do but it doesn't work when the user you're trying to change is being held hostage by system dicks. But I already went into recovery mode and changed it because no one seems to know how to get around it
What did they mean by this?
>Let's put a botnet in you're sink
Has the interwebs gone too far?
Also, which OS is this?
I am in the field of cyber security or more specifically cyber security focused software development since pentesting is more about knowing how to use your toolset instead of being able to program it.
So last year I spent quite amount of time with Python, it was really easy & fun to learn. But it was just not enough for full scale software development. So this year I want to devote my time to learning C++, and adding Python + C++ combo to my skill set.
Currently reading Stroustup's "Programming: Principles and Practice using C++", I know that it is written for newbies but coming from a high-level programming language background where some of the subjects are highly abstract I just want to refresh my knowledge with low-level stuff this time.
So here is my questions:
1. What the fuck is wrong with C++ 11/14/17? Is there a reason why people don't like the newer standards or is it just a meme?
2. C++ has some overhead compared to C, it is a very known thing. But is the overhead optional, can't I just disable the stuff that I don't want and minimize the overhead in the final build?
3. MinGW vs. MSVC? Practically speaking.
4. Which IDE would you recommend? Currently using CLion but still haven't decided, might switch to VS in the end.
5. Any book/resource recommendations? Especially cybersec programming.
>C++ has some overhead compared to C
Doing OOP in C leads to worse performance than in C++. Templating allows to idiomatically do things that would involve runtime overhead in C at compile time. So no, it's not "a very known thing".
