Looking to get a new Leptop to install Linux.
HP has been pretty shitty in the past but these do look sweet.
Should I get an Envy or an XPS 13?
How do I edit pdf files for free? I've already used the Acrobat free trial and I won't be jewed out of $25 a month for the license

1) why would you want to? if it's because of pervasive anti-patterns, that's not the language's fault, but the community's. if it's something about the choices of the design of the language itself, go see a therapist because your autism is actually getting in the way of your life if you think about this enough to make a thread about it.
2) /g/ can't affect any change. when /g/ tried to make a linux distribution, it started with designing a logo and didn't even accomplish that.
3) even if /g/ wasn't overwhelmed with incompetent, good-for-nothing losers and had a lot of influential and generally competent people on the board, it still wouldn't be able to dislodge the most widely supported client side web programming language

Is there anything left for me? I want to learn programming but I'm not very smart. I would like to at least start with something easy and manageable to gain confidence and create things that "werk" before I consider moving onto things.
What would be suggested for someone like me besides killing myself?
What are you basing the fact that you are "retarded" on? The fact that you cant master the language after one day of looking at the syntax? I doubt you've tried anything substantial enough using a language that you could accurately conclude that you are too dumb to continue.
Instead of developing sexbots,
why not just establish cloning rights agreements with pornstars and get sex-clones for domestic ownership?
>Instead of developing cartoons with our newly established understanding of 3d,
>why not just establish cloning rights agreements with actors and use actor-cloning for animation?
The chinese are making sexbots now. They can now blink and move their eyes, make sounds and even generate heat to feel like a real body.
You know escorts are way cheaper right? This is a just a glorified fleshlamp.
Child prostitutes are way cheaper and fun in third world countries. With that much money you can get a child bride from a tribe in the amazonian rainforest
Is it possible to track down a stolen android tablet? It was my grandmas. She didn't have a lock screen enabled. But she has the boxes they came in. I'm pretty sure the serial numbers are on the boxes. There are 2 of the both android. One was my grandmas and one was my moms who past away recently.
I don't think this will help you, but since no replies...
If you have the WiFi MAC address of the tablet, use airodump-ng (part of aircrack-ng) to sniff for the device at a place you suspect it might be at. This only works if you're within WiFi range and the device has WiFi turned on.
Same person. A Polaroid tablet running am early version of Android or a launcher from years ago? Buy a new tablet. It's not worth much, unless you had valuable data on there.
If you had a Google account signed in, check Android Device Manager on the web. But the tablet's probably been reset to factory by now.
When Intel/Amd is going to advance <=10nm processors?
Probably around the same time that GlobalFoundries and TSMC does, seeing how Intel fucked around with everything but processors for a while.
AMD is tied to GF for the most part, but still uses TSMC, so they're dependent on those fabs.
Samsung will do what Samsung wants to do, which might be another iteration of FinFet.
tl:dr : Tech moves at the speed of fabs.
was always a poorfag, but now I finally have money...
I always hated the idea of Macs but now that I can afford one, I am tempted...
as a lifetime PC user who never used a Mac, how will I like a Macbook?
You will hate that you cannot upgrade the ram, that is way slower for what you paid and that the battery lfie isn't that better if you're actually doing work on it. Also storage space being fixed and you have to pay premium "custom" parts if you ever want to upgrade.
>as a lifetime PC user who never used a Mac, how will I like a Macbook?
the key shortcuts are different.. I wanted to switch back from Mac to Windows, and I couldnt, because of muscle memory..
also, its lots of Money. just take the price of one of the Mac books and compare what you could buy if you went for Dell, HP or some other brand
stop this cancer and make an unike thread, no hating do

User Scripts(including opengl shaders):
Migrating from MPC-HC?
Vulkan(Linux only for now):
Test vulkan and post logs if it gives you any kind of problems.
For better playback quality paste this in your mpv.conf file:
Check your settings for compatibility errors by running mpv in command line or with
. Search the log for "dumb" anything or for [e].
>tried to get into programming a halfdozen times
>never stuck at it more that 3 weeks
As a result the first few hours of learning a new language are so fucking trivial and easy it bores me to death, but I don't know enough to just jump in at the deep end.
Fucking kill me.
Stupid Questions Thread
I'm using SoftEther VPN to play Dragons Dogma Online, whenever I login to the game I must be connected to a Japanese server, every time I connect windows pops up telling me about a new network connection and if I want to share files. In the long run is there any down side to having loads of different network connections in Windows?
What are some data recovery tools for USBs and SD/MicroSD cards?
I dont have need for it right now, just wondering what exists for it.
Im talking about FUBAR tier MicroSD and USBs where they only will be detected but only that and you wont be able to see whats on it.
>tfw installed gentoo but X always starts with a black screen no matter what I do
>can't even ctrl z/x/c or whatever
>can't even switch terminals
>no idea if it's getting errors, not sure how to log it anyway
What do I do?
