Anyone else starting to use more apple products as they become more successful in their career/social life?
I don’t have as much time to play video games and mess around with Android all day and also have more money. Premium apple products just become more and more appealing.
What is the most optimum laptop that balances affordability and power to run decently/well software like matlab or mathematica?
Alright, well, I came here reluctantly because every other time I've been on this board I've been called a faggot and told to kill myself. Which is understandable because I was asking for help, I'm a skiddie, etc. But tonight I come because I've started to take the steps to get out of the skid-zone. I'm trying to learn C++, and after I've become proficient in it, I have other languages in my queue (C#, Python, VBS, etc.).
I was wondering if anyone had any tips, because I'm halfway through this first course and I feel slightly retarded when it comes to why you even need headers (.h files) that #include another .cpp file, to then compile all of that to another .cpp file. It just seems like extra steps to me.
And also, if anyone can suggest other languages to learn so that I'll have a chance in the vast IT field.
Any help or stories would be greatly appreciated.
I know I can probably do a google search and get general answers to this question, but I'm going to ask you anyway - what kind of stuff can you do with Python? Like how is it different from C++?
It prototypes a hell of a lot faster than C++ but it's difficult to make it do non-trivial things efficiently.
i.e. it's quick to make stuff in python but a well made C++ program will work better
to be honest the only surefire way out it to just do stuff. doesn't matter the language, just learn stuff, program stuff, and don't be afraid to try new (to you) things. Also try to make sure you have stuff under your belt from low level to high level. Know how to write a memory allocator and use a web framework.
Is the GTX 1060 a good card or should I suck it up and pay retarded prices for a 1070? Please, help me. I know nothing and haven't purchased a graphics card since 2009.
i bought a thinkpad and now i need to put linux on it.
if i were installing debian minimal, what's the best window manager/de? i want lightweight, fast and easy to rice
what's the best ide, /g/?
Another Intel Coffee Lake price has been leaked
Had computer off while I was gone over the weekend, came back and it takes 5 minutes to boot. Got into task manager and half my ram is being used by some weird ass service.
Name the best piece of technology to come out in the last 5 years. Ultra Hard mode: no Apple products.
Could be any country or subculture of a country(Silicon Valley for example).
What makes places like Germany and Japan and parts of the US to be so good at creating new technologies? You could write a book about all the innovations the Nazis pulled together at the height of WW2 their engineering power was overclocked basically. They made huge leaps in record time, how?

My guilt is all encompassing. It's like I'm in the middle of the ocean and everything is a long swim away
computer graphics are done by transforming matricies into an array in memory which represents pixels on your screen.
the tricky part is the algorithm used to determin which points on the polygons go in which pixel. It's done with raycasting.
So... what's the best Linux distro just for a fuck-around machine? I already have a Windows gaming machine so no need to take that into consideration, but for a laptop for uni where I'm studying CS and doing a lot of programming, what's the best distro?
Use forth be gangster. The language to rule all.
How dangerous is this shit?
