Too many standards, too much reliance on "good enough" ideas. The shortcomings became a part of the standard.

Fug. I'm building a raspberry pi battery powered laptop.
117 posts and 18 images submitted.
>>
Congrats. Be ready for minimal, 90's era performance on sub-optimal hardware.
Be ready to overclock, and read all of the documentation on over-clocking.
It won't really run 44 hours if you're serious.

You're going to spend as much building this as you are for a shitty throw away laptop.

Good luck running an LCD display of any resolution and brightness on AA batteries.
>>
>>61303924
I really hope you are not using the Model A+.
Model B at least.

One idea I've had is building one with 2 screens together.
One screen will be an e-ink screen, underneath the LCD touchscreen.
I can use e-ink for basic status stuff, or keeping some simple data on-screen for long periods of time.
Then only use the LCD for high-fidelity requirements.
Have a button that can grey-scale mirror the current LCD buffer to e-ink. I'd probably write that mirroring function myself so I can have control over the greyscaling of the screen more. (especially the dithering)

Is it a good idea to create relatively simple passwords for websites and use SHA-256 to hash them?

No, use bcrypt you fucking mong.

Why don't you use a hashing algorithm actually made for password hashing like bcrypt?

only annoying thing about photon so far, at least what has made it to nightly, is that they separated the bookmarks button again so bookmarking a page is now in the address bar rather than the bookmark button, but also they've moved history to the library tab in the menu so getting to history requires another click

because it just werks with the software it comes with and you don't have to fiddle.

you're just doing what you want when you're on it, thereby creating a chemical association in the brain that macOS is comfy because you there are no stressful memories associated with it

It's typed macOS. To answer your question Ubuntu and macOS are 10/10.

Big data & ML/neural networks, yep.

It's a stupid cuck meme. Practically no one needs to learn ML because no one has an actual application for it. You can just use APIs.

Learn Java enterprise dev if you actually want a paycheck.

What is your opinion on Perl?

>Is there any reason to learn it over Python nowadays?
You want to embed an interpreter in your program but want more than one instance and these instances should be properly separated, not some shitty hack.

>>61302365
>Is there any reason to learn it over Python nowadays?
Some shitty, exotic typesetting softwares uses lots of it.
>>
>>61302396
>>61302411
So there's pretty much no reason?
I thought Perl was faster to write and better for Unix scripting.

Ask questions, get advise, discuss Uni related topics.


I'll start:

First year CS student here. I've got 2 weeks left for my semester break.

This semester I'll be taking:

>Data Management
>Network Routing Principals
>Technical Software Development

Any prep ideas?

Cont.

Currently majoring in be cyber security, got a CCNA for free as it was integrated in my networks and switching unit. Hoping to get into network architecture, so I'll likely attempt the higher end Cisco certs over the summer break.

I don't even care if this is Oculus soon meeting their end. PC VR is finally cheap enough.

Is data hoarding a mental illness?
I keep thinking about how much time I've wasted hoarding data that won't matter after I die and I get depressed.

It sounds like a compulsion which is leaving you with negative feelings.

That's definitely not good.

Release the data anon

Looking at these two competitors to try and get you to join their ecosystem, which is better?

Google

>GPM is based as fuck

Apple
>seem to care about "protecting your privacy"
>iMessage
>I have no idea how it's offerings are in things like "cloud storage" or Apple Music are

Which do you prefer? Why do you prefer it? What services do you use?
