What happened with VRML? Why didn't it take off? It was what everyone wanted, but in the end what we got was a javashit infested web coded by pajeets.
Broadband was not common back then and microsoft extinguished vrml with a shitload of activex plugins that supported only internet explorer on windows that most of the time didn't work or were viruses/trojans/shitware.
But it put users on a mindframe that the next activex plugin will work because activex is superior technology because it's active.
anyone know some good sites to get Pdf. on textbooks??

If it's okay for the government to spy on me does it mean I can spy on the government? I mean we're all equal before the law?
>get a new thinkpad

WTF /g/? You said memepads would save me from the botnet!

Need a monitor for work at home, 70% programming, statistics, reading, writing etc. Occasionally watching a movie. Very rarely do I play a game.
Needs to have pivot function, 16:10 preferred but not strictly necessary.
I've been looking at pic related, the NEC MultiSync EA245WMi because I can get a good deal on it from work.
What are the alternatives? What's the equivalent Dell model? From an asthetic point of view I much prefer the look of the Dell stands.
Also monitor general I suppose.
What good leather chairs are their that I can buy within the UK? Not too big chair if possible but has a nice soft leather like a pillow.
might be better off getting your current chair reupholstered in real leather, it'll last a very long time then, most leather used for office chairs is made from protein leather or really thin, cheap leather that wears out quickly.
reupholstering a bargain bin chair might be a bit cheaper but it doesn't seem like a good investment.
craigslist is probably the best place to find good deals on office stuff. or whatever site office parks use when they need to liquidate furniture when a company downsizes or something. i got an aeron for like $300 that way.
Gonna be without internet for a while and want to use the time to learn/practice C++ and learn new programming techniques.
Which tools and books do I get and finish?
If you trust us to help you and and baby sit you then listen careful so that you won't waste time:
For now you have two books to choose from:
C++ Primer by Stanley B. Lippman 5th edition
Programming -- Principles and Practice Using C++ by Bjarne Stroustrup
Both are very good, quick google what each offers and reviews so you can pick.
If you're on windows download visual studio now preferably enterprise with trail ( 30 days ).
On Linux install CLion and activate trail ( 30 days ).
Simply start coding and take notes that you can understand and translate into applicable knowledge, after you go trough chapters take your time to actually re-read your notes and see if you properly understood shit.
Google every problem or idea you have to find a solution.
But best way to get familiar with C++ before you read any book in my experience is to watch this video series OR use these video series when you're stuck on a concept to get a feel for it.
Downlaod them now if you're going to be offline, but the comment section is also important on the videos.
Show me your AdNauseam score, anon.
if you use the google ad script from codefag, then you need to set it to click on ads sometimes.
otherwise, for daily usage where you're not actively targeting google, it doesn't matter at all.
Download link anyone?
