Pretend I don't know anything about C development aside from writing some source files and running them through gcc.

Where can I find information on the full toolchain for C dev (unit testing, debugging, makefiles, etc...)?

You've got it anon. Most of my complaints in one box. A lot of these are solved in strict mode, though, and most of the rest are solved in TypeScript.

But then there's problems endemic to both languages (TS and Python) in my opinion that TypeScript can't solve, such as not knowing statically whether reading/writing to a property of an object has side effects.

How do you live with the fact you became a programmer.
Does anyone else have a /g/-related job and hate their lives beyond words.

I enjoy my job? I don't know why you hate it anon. Sometimes it can be tedious, but often I get to work on interesting problems and fun puzzles.

I was in a cube farm codemonkey job at IBM and I could feel my soul dying just by looking at that place. All my coworkers were 40 years older than me and seemed to live for their morning coffee break (tbf, they *did* get things done, at the rate of fixing maybe 1 bug per week).

Anyway, I quit that shit as soon as I could and started working on a PhD. This way at least I can stall for a few years before becoming (hopefully) a career researcher. It will be just as crushing, I'm sure, to have to do trivial shit to win grants, but at least I'll be able to work on stuff in the general area that interests me.

But the real moral of the story is that I wish I had dedicated more time to acquiring real skills, like working with machinery or electronics. Anybody and their dog can learn to program, and most companies won't care if you're actually good at it or not as long as you can pass an interview. Fuck being a career programmer

I didn't want to become a programmer because I would sit by the computer all the time, doing nothing really exciting. But rent needed to be paid and there was no time to choose anything better.
So I started to hate my life a little bit more every day, seeing the life passing by while I sit on one chair and do mostly uninteresting tasks for somebody else's project.
Then I found a gf abroad, managed to persuade the boss to let me work remotely, moved and now I'm on the way to start living on the road and maybe freelancing for some interesting projects to get money for gas.
Being a programmer can be good or also just a stage on a way to something better.

Anyone recommend a decent eReader that isn't entirely shit but doesn't try to do everything for a ridiculous premium?

All I require is an SD slot, decent battery life, and for it to be rugged enough to survive travelling in a bag every other day.

eReader thread I guess.

New Kindles are a lot worse. Worse design. Worse battery. Slower page turn times.

I appreciate PCRE, though. The OG PCRE, that is. I ain't re-learning that shit. Maybe they should be called RCRE, now that Ruby's the best language with first-class regular expressions.

Too bad it's not OCaml.

So a little while ago, a sex predator was caught because his prescription bottle was in the background of a photo he was committing a sex act on. It was completely blurred out, and the fbi had a program "not released to the public yet" that allowed them to unblur it, getting his first name, 2 letters of last, and first numbers of prescription #, nailing him down to Stephen Keating.

Anyone know what program they used?

I've fucking had enough. Not just from 4chan. Every fucking site is now cancerous with captcha bullshit and they're making you complete more and more and more and more of them before they'll let you pass all the time. I had to fucking complete THREE just to make this thread. What is a good FREE software to end this fucking AIDS? Not only that, but this has gone far enough I want revenge. What are some good ways we can actively harm companies that insist on this evil?

Where is the catch, can you install spying software that will steal my credit card info from the GPU or what? Will it blow up my house? I don't get it. Is used GPU's the way to go from now on?

So through circumstance, I have inherited control of a full server rack of Dell PowerEdge 2950s, with QNAP backups, switches, a KVM and dedicated business-class Internet. It's going to be sitting idle for the next 6 months, and I can do whatever I want with it.

My original plan was to do secure, encrypted communications and file storage for local political groups, but that fell through because none of them wanted to stop using Facebook Messenger. I wish was kidding.

So now that I'm done tying to do good, what else can I do with this? Looking for ideas, because this is too good to waste.

Is there somewhere a thread with those glowing desktops anime gifs going on, or why am I seeing them more often lately?

I kinda like that ISPs in the US have me so accustomed to low download speeds. It makes it to where I don't even notice a difference when switching to VPN because my VPN provides faster speeds than my own ISP is even capable of providing.

I never torrent anything more than the occasional linux distro- that and the rest of my downloads are legally purchased vaporwave from bandcamp & tons of free porn from reddit + 4chan.

Why does anybody even need fast internet? Unless you're a steamtard with a gigantic video game library and multiple computers, why would anybody need anything higher than 1.5mbps?

Same with video games. Why not wait 5-10 years to play the same titles on more affordable hardware, xkcd style?

Even if you are a steamtard, online gaming doesn't need much bandwidth, just good latency. Download some games overnight and play them the next day.

I'd be fine with not a lot of bandwidth in exchange for good latency, no data caps, and no filtered ports.

its nice to be able to stream 4k video
