At long last, conclusive proof that literally everyone who hates Python is a dirt-poor pleb living in a mud hut.

I was getting some knowledge about very old PCs, like Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and the first DOS/Windows PCs. I came across the BASIC language, and some say it's the language that made programming popular, but apart from cringeworthy turorials for kids it doesn't seem to be a language that really could be used for serious stuff.
In fact, I remember my uncle said once that Pascal or assembly were the languages one would use in more serious contexts, BASIC being more of a toy.
So I wonder, did BASIC have dynamic memory management like C? Could it be used in professional scenarios? And was it used by some important software developers?
Or was it just a toy language all along?
It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students that have had a prior exposure to BASIC: as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration

Reposting since I posted it right at the end of the last thread.
First time posting on /g/ in about a year and a half, but I just wanted to leave this somewhere.
I made a USB-bootable image to flash the X201 BIOS (in this case, the included BIOS ROM has the wireless card whitelisting removed). I don't have Windows on my X201, and I don't have the dock with the optical drive (yet), so this was the only way I managed to flash my BIOS. It worked for me, so I wanted to share.
I basically extracted the FAT partition from the lenovo-supplied bootable ISO image, did some tweaking, and shoved it all into a FreeDOS 1.2 installation I made under QEMU. I had to prevent it from loading any extensions, which I kind of hacked together in FDCONFIG.SYS (FreeDOS's CONFIG.SYS), and then tweaked autoexec.bat a little.
I first tried to get the El Torito image to boot from a flash drive without luck. DOS isn't my specialty (unix is), and I haven't used it in about 15 years.
Anyway, I was able to boot it and flash my BIOS successfully.
To put it on a flash drive, unpack it and then run:cat image.img > /dev/sd(Whatever-Your-Device-Node-Is)
Then you can remove it or reboot or whatever.
TL;DR flash your X201 BIOS with only a USB drive.
It should also work for other ThinkPads, though you'll want to replace the BIOS.WPH file.
You can mount the image with something like:modprobe loop
mount -o loop,offset=32256 image.img
(the FAT16 partition starts at the 32256th byte, or the start of sector 63)

Anyone else know this feel?
You aren't as intelligent as you think you are. Anyone has infinite potential when they don't apply themselves; it's when you do put the work in that you realise that you aren't capable of as much as you think
I actually considering going through with it and i do not know if I should. I like the clean design i am going for. So is this a bad idea?
Why haven't you switched to a declarative OS /g/?
I'm currently stoned harder than a gay in Afghanistan and working on C++ homework for Uni, listening to the best smoking track running Ubuntu.

Those comments to the right of your method definitions are superfluous. What those methods do is clear from their names -- don't comment them like that unless it's required by the course!
The belts were done when i received my Walkman, so i put in some soft rubber bands that looked just like the other ones, just not goo.
The top one with the motor and the giant golden disk has a tight and thick rubber band while the tiny disk below that one has a long, skinny, stretchy rubber band, I manually rotated the double staged brass disk and everything seemed to have nice traction. I then re-assembled it and the tape played slow and kind of wobbly. I then tried many batteries, which did nothing. I then adjusted the speed. Once i fixed the speed, i found out that the audio still came out very shaky at high notes. I have cleaned the tape head. I have no idea what to do.
So in all.
Tight top band, what i assume to be a perfect bottom band, wobbly audio at high pitches, different speeds for different tapes, and audio distortion, mostly on the left side.
you do realize it's 2017, right?
I have my Linux server set to automatically reboot at 6:05am each morning to make sure it continues to keep itself online and not fuck anything up when I am away from home. Every 4 reboots it comes back up and continues chugging along but sometimes it just doesn't regain a network connection until I forcibly reboot the machine again.
I set a bash script to run every 5 mins via cron that pings my gateway and if not receiving a response it will
>sudo ifconfig up
it only seems to bring the network up if I have manually done
>sudo ifconfig down
that works. But when restarting the machine automatically, it doesn't bring it up at all and I need to force a full reboot again for it to start working. Anyone know what I've done wrong here?
the bashscript is:
ping -c4 192.168.1.1 > /dev/null
if [ $? != 0 ]
logger "Network connection missing... restarting"
sudo ifconfig enp2s0 up
and my dmesg looks like this:

I guess it's the "link not ready" shit, but I don't understand how to fix it.
niggbuntu 16.04, everything is completely up to date. It's just used as a NAS and nothing else.
yeah my router has the mac address saved to give it the same static IP each and every time.
75% of the time it reboots and keeps chugging along but it's the remainder of the time it just simply doesn't come back up automatically at all with network access until I force another reboot
