Every single product he's been managing at AMD has been a total flop. RTG is a massive drain on the rest of the company.

480 and 580 are great budget cards. Not sure why was the Vega so delayed, even now we see that FE was launched too early, with abnormal power consumption and shitty performance.
Goddamnit, they did well with Ryzen, can't they do well with Vega?

Just installed emacs for the first time. I've been using GNU/Linux as my main OS since 2004 and I have never tried emacs. I fucking love it, fuck you vim fanboys for making me think emacs is hard. It's intuitive, easy to use, it has sane key bindings and the learning curve is nowhere near as steep as it is for vim. Vim is the text editor equivalent of flogging yourself after crawling through broken glass. Fuck vim.

Now I need to some extensions for emacs. I don't do coding/programming but I do a lot of writing. What are some plugins for dictionary, formatting, LaTeX, spell check, and general word processing?

Alright, I've apparently been living under a rock because every time an issue concerning corporations and social media comes up, all of these personalities refer to themselves as "content creators", and refer to whatever they make as "content". When did this trend of adapting insufferable jargon lacking in personality become the norm, even for those who take stands against corporations?

I have been using a cracked win 10 but yesterday after 6 months give or take of usage I was hit with an activation message(couldn't contact company server etc). Does anyone recommend a good activator that isn't a virus? I noticed the typical torrent sites all had fresh versions of activators uploaded today so something must have changed and new activators are going out. Does anyone recommend one? What is the deal with the KMS Pico? I thought I recalled someone saying it was bad to use previously and cant recall which activator I had used. I don't even know how this happened because I was using windows 10 insider.

Install windows 7
Then use daz loader
Make a USB upgrade kit to 10
Use it on the w7 you installed with daz loader

KMS Pico

>>61152995
After activating win 7 with daz loader, there's a genuine windows certificate file that you can copy. You upgrade to win 10, and copy over that certificate file and you'll have a genuine copy of win 10. Complete directions are floating around somewhere over at mydigitallife forums.

Is this the largest scam in the history of human kind? I've been in contact with probably a million of computers without a single one being damaged due to electrostatic discharge. Heck, I haven't even had a single occurrence of electrostatic discharge.

ESD don't have to be visible or audible to do damage, you'd have no idea until the thing stops working.

That said, ESD is less of a problem in recent years due to better shielding and ESD protection. This was a major concern years ago, but still poses a relatively minor risk today. Better safe than sorry, especially if you're working on someone else's shit for money.

It really depends on the environment. In some places static electricity builds up really easily and there is a real risk.

This is rare though.

No. Almost everyone wants to be a "Computer Engineer or a Software Engineer". They are like sand. You can find sand everywhere.

Study a trade and you'll be well of with that if you have the brains to get it to a level where you can earn up to 6 figures.

I switched from Windows to Linux and im already having difficulties.

I have an 120gb, that i formatted and installed Ubuntu Mate on it, and another 1TB HDD with 3 partitions.

After I installed linux, I was unable to mount the second partition on the HDD.
This is the error I get.

Did I lose my files?

Linux hasn't done anything to your files. Most likely, windows broke the filesystem and linux can't interpret the broken bits.

I need a laptop for college and I've decided to purchase a gaming laptop. Here's the two laptops I have in mind.

Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B06Y4GZS9C/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498817726&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=predator+helios+300&dpPl=1&dpID=41v2oytxs9L&ref=plSrch

Asus laptop
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N9QKYZ9/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1498817740&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=asus+gaming+laptop&dpPl=1&dpID=41RQViYVZQL&ref=plSrch

Which one do you think will have better build quality? Better parts and performance? Should I choose the Asus because it's a more reliable company even though the graphics card is 3gb vs the 6gb in the Acer?

I'll be traveling a lot too and I won't be able to use my gaming PC. I'm looking into purchasing a laptop cooling pad in hopes of lowering the temps
