So I want to buy an e-reader. Preferably one that
>Uses that fancy "e-ink" stuff
>Lets me load my own books on there so I don't get cucked by having to usesome DRM-ridden online store
Do such things exist?
IS this thing to be trusted?
Apparently no one knows who runs this shit
Is there a way how to flash custom firmware onto HP printers? There's OpenWRT for routers, Rockbox for PMPs,...
I just want to grab a sledgehammer and smash it to bits because I can't even print a single piece of paper without anything breaking software wise
>great lows and mediocre highs, you will want to EQ them
What's the thinkpad T420 of cellphones?
>Easy to unlock bootloader
>Easy to install custom recovery
>Easy to flash roms
>Large Dev platform
>buy a 8tb hard drive from WD
What kind of fucking scam is this
What do I do with old desktop computers?
I have 10 of them. One is broken, and I'm using another as a shitpost machine at work. I may throw some torrents on it too. What should I do with the remaining eight?
They have shitty pentiums, and RAM ranges from 512MB to 1GB.
I would feel bad just throwing them away.
Help me out /g/
I'm trying to find a widget or functionality to allow me to place album art widgets using PowerAMP, the default player allows for this but I want my FLAC reeee
What the FUCK is the difference between the Redmi Note 4 and the Note 4 Global?
Do I still need to flash the "global" version?
t. someone who is technologically retarded
What is the most overrated programming language ever and why is it Python?
>Too much reliance on native libraries because of above
You're probably right. Python is definitely overrated. Inconsistent as fuck API, shitty standard library, slowest fucking language around, dynamic typing, strict adherence to imperative/OOP garbage, fractured 2 to 3 ecosystem for no real reason.
It's a good language for non-programmers to use to get things done, but if you're an actual paid programmer then using python should make you feel ashamed.
>What is the most overrated programming language ever and why is it Python?
>>Too much reliance on native libraries because of above
It is a good beginners language and a good duck tape solution to things. I started at java and I wish I started at python.
It's great for beginners, at least this is in my experience since that's what I'm learning now. Other languages you have to learn tons of stuff before you get to do anything practical.
>inb4 read SICP.
I am looking for a gallery viewer / manager that allows you to add tags to the images and to be able to search and filter them.
I am interested in it being functional and simple.
I'm testing "ACDSee" which allows both functionalities but the interface is somewhat overloaded.
WHY IS IT SO SLOW???
If you want help:
>Assemble your parts list
>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?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (kind of outdated)
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560/G4600 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - Cheapest quad core you can get (Ryzen 3 soon)
>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
>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
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM
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.
It's not anon. Happens all the time whenever people try to hijack generals, whether is it on /vg/ / /g/ /a/ or any place that has a decent amount of generals, the illegitimate one ends up deleted everytime
Thread that doesn't involve brainless
How can I find someone by his email? Google search doesn't show many relevant results. Any websites that are good for this?
