I don't mind taking some breaks from vidya because I'm no longer an enthusiast. But it would be pretty sweet to play some while onboard some ship in the middle of an ocean. Will "cooler pads" fix this ventilation fan issue or just make me look like an idiot? Are they 9fag-tier memes?
Depends on the cooling arrangement of the laptop itself. My y50 had a huge vent on the bottom, I just raised it off my desk with blocks of plastic and I noticed a benefit.
Most of these pads are memes, especially on back/side vent arrangements.
My PC does this sometimes. It should automatically shutdown if it exceeds a specific threshold. But if it doesn't have that feature (unlikely) and you start to smell burning, take it back and complain
Is there any way to search an entire search engine's index for a certain file type? What i'm trying to look for is very obscure and theres little resources available from a simple search
warning it's a fucking long read but it's definitely worth it

>Steve Huffman, the thirty-three-year-old co-founder and C.E.O. of Leddit, which is valued at six hundred million dollars, was nearsighted until November, 2015, when he arranged to have laser eye surgery. He underwent the procedure not for the sake of convenience or appearance but, rather, for a reason he doesn’t usually talk much about: he hopes that it will improve his odds of surviving a disaster, whether natural or man-made. “If the world ends—and not even if the world ends, but if we have trouble—getting contacts or glasses is going to be a huge pain in the ass,” he told me recently. “Without them, I’m fucked.”
>Huffman, who lives in San Francisco, has large blue eyes, thick, sandy hair, and an air of restless curiosity; at the University of Virginia, he was a competitive ballroom dancer, who hacked his roommate’s Web site as a prank. He is less focussed on a specific threat—a quake on the San Andreas, a pandemic, a dirty bomb—than he is on the aftermath, “the temporary collapse of our government and structures,” as he puts it. “I own a couple of motorcycles. I have a bunch of guns and ammo. Food. I figure that, with that, I can hole up in my house for some amount of time.”
Even the re ddit faggot is getting ready.
I read this and it made me wonder that it makes sense that programmers and tech people would get prepared in advance as we tend to be ahead of the curve, i.e. ahead of normies.
Being nerds might actually be what saves us.
>wanting to live in a post-apocalyptic shithole
Why the fuck would you want that? If the world ever ends I can only pray I'm one of the first to go and spared the atrocities that come after.
What would be a good way to encode Video, Images or even digital information as audio files that can be recovered using a microphone or audio line-in? I'm aware of SSTV for Images, which works really nicely but surely people might have worked on more complex modulations just for the sake of it? So far I've tried Trellis Modulation and SSTV, which works pretty nice but how far can we push it in terms of efficiency.
I'm new to this but a fast check on wikipedia tells me SSTV is uses radio frequencies as a medium, not sound.
Technically you can use any wiless protocol with sound as a medium, thoug you will have huge constrains on latency and throughput, probably big error-rate and won't get the signal very far. It's an interesting experiment noneteless. Maybe we could try to implement wifi on it (and send any data using normal internet protocols)
Modulating data in such a way that it can be transferred as analog sound
Surely this is not a thing
Image also de modulating it again as data
Surely this cannot exist
Is it botnet?
How do I get into FOP (feeling oriented programming)?
You meant to write#define true false
#define false (rand() % 2 == 0)
There is a way to combat this (although you can never be sure)#define sanity2 (true || true)
#define sanity4 (sanity2 || sanity2)
#define sanity8 (sanity4 || sanity4)
#define sanity16 (sanity8 || sanity8)
#define sanity sanity16
#define insanity2 (false && false)
#define insanity4 (insanity2 && insanity2)
#define insanity8 (insanity4 && insanity4)
#define insanity16 (insanity8 && insanity8)
#define insanity insanity16
Even when accounting for conversions from Mebibyte and Megabyte.
Even when accounting for all system partitions.
Storage devices STILL have less storage than advertised, how do companies defend this???

Node vs Golang for medium sized project developed by one person?
I know them both fairly well, I use Python mainly in work, but I want something new, more performant & maintainable in my sideproject
Either are maintainable (Python too) as long as you stick to a clear style. Performance depends on size but I'd imagine the difference is material only at a much larger scale. I'd go with Node personally, but if you want type safety Go.
Retarded questions tread.
Is it possible to program in pure binary?
That's exactly how extremely early computers were programmed.
Zen 2 will be 7nm and it's coming out in late 2018 or early 2019.
Do you think Intel will have a response by then? Or they're fucked harder than Anne Frank in a brothel filled with drunk Gestapo officers?

+ Decent Screen

The fuck has happened to me?
My Winamp playlist is filled with hundreds of hours of porn and it's actually really on my HDDs, filling over 700 Gigabytes. I just left the PC running over night and this is what I woke up to.
My router tells me that it has been downloading porn at full speed for the whole night. What the fuck?
penicil thread. post your pencils. picture related.
I began collecting 6 months ago and it's looking great already.
