How can I be a better programmer than my classmates? I'm a freshman at college and some of them already did *real* programming work, so their grades are all 90+ while mine are mostly between 7 and 8.5. Before university, I was mostly ricing muh Linux desktop and working with small scripts in Python -- nothing serious.
I do know more about GNU/Linux and system administration than they do, but programming-wise they're just better at most things.... I feel like shit.
I hope that by the end of my graduation I'll become a good programmer. Or at least better than these normgroids.
my samsung n150 netbook died
i really like the formfactor and physical keyboard
even the processor speed did not bother me much
any recommendations for replacements?
also netbook appreciation thread
Can someone help me to hack a fb without using xploitz?
does anyone still use I2P? Or is it dead? I always remember it was meant to be the next big replacement for tor but I check it out recently and it seems quieter than ever before
So some time has passed, Zen is released and benchmark results are in.
It's time to judge: Has the certified shit wrecker wrecked Intel's shit? Or perhaps could he have done better?
I'd like to take a minute to praise Intel for deciding not to wreck its launch period. Choosing not to release a new CPU to compete with Ryzen and moving into the space heater business instead was a classy move, and shows they welcome competition.
python 3 isnt printing "Hi" + name +"!" for some reason WTF please explain this to a brainlet like me
Is there a more useless piece of tech than this?
A "dumb" TV plus a Roku/Fire/Chromecast does what these do but a trillion times better, and it's also cheaper.

Reposting from thread that was already on autosage.
Considering selling Early 2014 i5 macbook air, what business laptop can I get for $400 or less that won't be a downgrade. Battery life is very important, mba lasts nearly 9 hours.
>deploy LTE on band 66 because that's the spectrum nobody else wanted thus cheap
>only a few phones can access band 66
>unlocked phones that support band 66 can't use Freedom Mobile because they deployed some gimped version of LTE that requires special firmware
>even Galaxy S8, which support band 66 and they sell themselves, won't work with Freedom Mobile unless loaded with special firmware
Why can't this garbage company do anything right?
Let's be honest here
Do you like Windows 10?
Ui is balls. Cant be dealing with interegated ads. I can see why they're going down this route, they're prepping everyone for AI assisted OS. I still dont rikey. Though you can get it somewhere useable with a few tweaks.
>FCC will eliminate the Title II classification of Internet service providers. And that would have important effects on consumer protection that go beyond the core net neutrality rules that outlaw blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization. Without Title II's common carrier regulation, the FCC would have less authority to oversee the practices of Internet providers like Comcast, Charter, AT&T, and Verizon. Customers and websites harmed by ISPs would also have fewer recourses, both in front of the FCC and in courts of law.
>Title II provisions related to broadband network construction, universal service, competition, network interconnection, and Internet access for disabled people would no longer apply. Rules requiring disclosure of hidden fees and data caps could be overturned, and the FCC would relinquish its role in evaluating whether ISPs can charge competitors for data cap exemptions.
Key Title II provisions:
>Data cap exemptions
>Hidden fees and data caps
>Preemption of state laws that outlaw competition
>Web browsing privacy
>Broadband for poor people
Look at those good goys saying isps should be back to Title 2. They don't realize the isps specifically chose to be title 2 only so that they can retain their monopoly. Since it's such a pain in the ass now against the increasing data pulling of Netflix and other sites, it was bound to bite them back in the ass.
so whats the big deal with bitcoin and other cryptocurrency? where can you even use it? no big retailers accept it as a form of payment... or pretty much any retailer at all. whats the point of having so much of it if you cant use it? the only places ive seen that use it is forums where people are selling cracked accounts and shit like that.
or is there a way to exchange it for real monies?
There was a startup called bitpay that acted somewhat like PayPal, but for processing bitcoin.
I tried it for a while on my site, but there were so few people that actually purchased things with bitpay that I stopped using it.
is Biebian good? what are the advantages/disadvantages?
Holy shit. Winbabbies on suicide watch.
>fresh install lubuntu on thinkpad
>wifi doesnt work
