Hey dumbbitch, what kind of computer do you have?
>I don't have a computer i have a mac.
Why do fucking normies fall for this fucking bullshit type of marketing? Applefags will argue that their mac isnt even a computer, its a whole separate device known as a mac. How do you even begin to combat this level of stupidity? Also any applehate is appreciated
tell application "Applefag" display dialog "It just works."

Why does /g/ not talk about this security feature of ThinkPads? Even though this laptop is much more powerful than my old MacBook, fully upgraded with 8 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD, I don't actually have to worry about someone trying to take it out of my bag or snatch it from my desk at the library.
Not only that, accidents have less repercussions. I have a 2016 Macbook now and, while the screen and the speakers are glorious, the constant having to worry about small bumps or dents is not great. I should just have gotten a newer thinkpad to replace my x220.

How can linux fags even defend this? The alternatives to all these programs arent viable. Gimp is a piece of garbage and named after a sexual fetish portrayed in the movie pulp fiction.
I don't listen to much music. When I do, I usually make use of my Rockbox device or Amarock on my computer. I don't suffer from Baby Duck Syndrome and use new software on a regular basis.
I don't play them often. When I do, AssaultCube is enough.
Don't need it.
Jesus christ? Use the built-in unzip tools. You can unzip rars wew

GIMP works enough for maymays

How much profit does 4chan make?
This site is really popular after all.
How much profit does one usually have from an imageboard?
Probably enough to make a decent living but not much more. I think most people here use adblockers so he has to shill passes by rangebanning people and making new features like ebin exclusive pass user board.
Putting things inside their cases ? Tell me you don't do this /g/, please tell me you don't use stickers neither..
Anyone have any opinions on these? I already own a relatively powerful PC for gaming and other things, so this would just sort of be the lightweight beater that gets brought around everywhere I go.
Works pretty well as a dumb terminal or a light-weight linuxbox with cruton. Hard to beat the battery life and price point. If your primary tools are a browser and a text editor, you'll be quite pleased. If you need local storage or a heavy IDE, you're in for a bad time.
Thanks for the serious response. The reason I ask is because I've found an "open box" one for $150~ that has a touch screen, a quad-core processor, 4GB ram, 32GB ssd, etc. Which honestly sounds REALLY nice for the price. Again, all of my "heavy" use gets put on the desktop, this thing is pretty much to take to classes/type notes/general media consumption.
Hay I notice no one even talks about these, so what search engine has the least trash these days?
I mean ever I search anything at all anymore I just keep getting News Articles, News sites, paid for content, click bait, mindless political nonsense, and other irrelevant content.
I use the advanced search queries but you can only filter out like 16 or so words, and theirs more then that number of "News" sites alone.
And I've tired using Bing, Google, Duck, and it still doses this.

I have but a simple question regarding to Python. Googlefu and QuckQuckFu has failed me so far.
How do you relay data inbetween two python files/programs? For example, if I generated a string in first.py, how can I relay that particular string to second.py?
I've heard about pickle/JSON, but I am not sure if it's what I need. If that is what I need to relay data, then how would I go about relaying data efficiently?
Thank you, muchas gracias

Are the scripts running concurrently? If so, use IPC.
There's some IPC stuff in the Python standard library:
If the scripts are not going to be running concurrently, you can use JSON or pickle or text files or whatever you want.
A database such as MariaDB, redis, or sqlite is also an option.
How do schools monitor the usage of the internet and "spy" on what students are using it for? If they even can.
