What the fuck am I looking at?
Why is this board so shit?
I know, right? Look at this shit!
This thread is about the appreciation of horology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch, clock, or other timepiece.

How did every browser become simultaneously shit?
Would making a browser non-free solve this problem?

What went wrong?
BASIC from 1980 can have the same capabilities as some JS does and it's a basic language to teach people to program (hell, it's B-A-S-I-C). But why people make more and more bloated programmes?
That's what happens when you want to teach people how to program, yet they don't even know how does the computer work.
Hell, not even some of my classmates know how to build a computer despite having studied the architecture of the cpu and operative systems.
>Caveat: I'm a code monkey, not a scientist.
Why do many programmers have such low opinions of themselves? And why don't they do anything to improve their situation? Pic related, why doesn't this "code monkey" just learn some math and become a scientist, or at the very least less of a code monkey?
Oh man, please let's discuss, i did that stuff with the AI, i don't think i'm supposed to even think about that.
So, E=mc2 right?
So, what i'm supposed to do now that i developed my AI? There is no point in coding it, what do i even need one for?
What is the best software to keep tracking of your goals in your life?
I'm using emacs org-mode with the app Orgzly on android with dropbox sync.
I was using calcurse but it was too limited for reminders and it was a pain in the ass to sync with android.
Feel free to share your life manager setup and your tips.
i have a bash function that adds a TODO line to my existing file, that's it, no need more atm
Also no one uses org-mode here, most of this idiots only shitpost and call you out if you post a black guy in a wallpaper.
This thread is going to get 10 replies at max.
A pen and a pocket notebook. But really if you have so much shit going on in your life that you can't remember all of it you should be simplifying your life, not adding organizational technologies.
Org mode probably. I've been using it for a few years. I find it annoying for ongoing tasks but it's great for project management. Also it's very useful for doing reviews or keeping a very simple journal.
Though I think I'd like some kind of inter linked planning system.
I find org-mode to be pretty bad at connecting pieces of information which is at least half of the point of having an organized system.

The year, last I checked, is 2017. Why do we still let this happen?

It's never coming, is it?
Firefox is turning into another Chrome
Why should I keep using it over the actual Chrome browser?
Firefox is still free software and Chrome is not. I think it's obvious you should stick with Chrome. If they became the same, what would be the point of switching? You're creating more work for yourself for no reason.
Seeing how every thread on /g/ is a general or a war thread, here's another general. Post a greentext story of your day at work or your job in general and how're things going for you. I'll start:
>work as a junior java dev in one of those 'flat structure' companies, making a custom storage system
>boss is a horrible programmer with a tendency to overcomplicate shit
>he's the lead dev on a huge, hopeless, overambitious project
>takes expensive shortcuts every time something should to be thorougly thought out
>turns out flat structure doesn't mean your boss can be your buddy, it just means they're too lazy to deal with management
>you also have to work directly with your boss with all the negatives it brings and more
>nonexisting morale, people quitting or asking for project reassignment
>I worked in a smaller project for a longer of my time being here, that had nothing to do with that shitheap and was actually decent but overall pointless
>suddenly boss reassigns me to do a Django project with a 2 weeks deadline
Had 4500 user passwords all set to 'August2017' by some IT company on a mutual customer in response to a phishing email, then after 300 users had been given their 'new secure passwords' they were re-reset to random ones, not excluding those already reset, and including service accounts for critical apps.
It's not a customer I'm involved with but the office was a bit hectic regardless.

Work is pretty chill, coworkers cool, nothing really pressing and being on-call is usually quiet so :).
I just spent 2 hours on the phone with a spic who had no idea how a VPN tunnel was supposed to be configured. Literally had to explain log messages to him. The worst part is this client is a bank. Don't worry goyim your money is in safe hands.
Redpill me on net net neutrality. I know better than to trust something so heavily endorsed by the likes of (((Google))), (((Moz://a))), and ((((((((John Oliver)))))))).
Just tech companies not wanting to pay for bandwidth and having 100% control of the internet.
These same tech companies have no problem censoring/blocking right wing websites yet they demand the ISP's not do the same thing as them.
Did I install the right https everywhere or did I install some pajeet botnet? I just don't understand why eff would be using a gmail address because that would literally be against everything they stand for
Stupid Questions Thread for stupid anons to ask stupid questions.
Me first: Trying to understand basic computer architecture. Can a CPU directly access data from a solid state drive?
for the past week or so ive been having problems with any videos that use html5 player. Happens on both chrome and botnet browser. Ive done the usual generic tips from googling solutions like updating browser, clearing cookies/cache, and just restarting browser but it doesnt work. They sometimes work after repeated restarts but they go back to shitting the bed quickly. I get either this error message or something akin to "error decoding media resource". Any ideas?
Also with the newly updated firefox they are dropping support for legacy addons and they are disabled by default. I have enabled them but only half of them seem to enable. Im trying to get ublock origin to work again, and I know it can because I can remove and reinstall the addon and it works just fine until I relaunch the browser. Any tips there?
I upgraded to firefox 55 without reading anything about it. I don't like the new changes and it seems to be running slower.
Apparently you can't downgrade past version 55, so how would I go about getting a good older version and rebuilding my profile? Also what version should I downgrade to?
