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.
Maybe you should only play flight sim games..
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

Google filetype:EXE
is it a text-readable format? like pdf or word?
if so you can specify it in advanced search
I honestly doubt it's going to be indexed

warning it's a fucking long read but it's definitely worth it

>Some of the wealthiest people in America—in Silicon Valley, New York, and beyond—are getting ready for the crackup of civilization.

>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.

>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.
Because living always comes with possibilities. Death is ... death. Don't you learn anything from anime?

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.
6 posts and 2 images submitted.
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)
You mean like fiberoptics?
Imagine that
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
A MoDem
Surely this cannot exist

How do I get into FOP (feeling oriented programming)?
16 posts and 1 images submitted.
>feeling oriented programming

What the fuck
#define true false
#define false (rand() % 0 == 0)
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???

64 GB == 59.60464 GiB

After rounding 60 GiB

27.5 MiB + 256 MiB + 53.6 GiB + 110 MiB + 16 MiB + 3 GiB + 64 MiB == 57.0735 GiB

After rounding 57.1 GiB
60 GiB - 57.1 GiB = 2.9 GiB

Fucking hell, they cheated us 2.9 GiB
Which is equal to 3.113851 GB

ITT: We discuss why Object Pascal / Delphi is the best language.

>strong db management out of the box
>settled language with a serious business (embarcadero) constantly improving the language.
>if there is a library written in c it can be easily implemented to pascal
>retro compatibility with Pascal. (Delphi)
>you can write assembly in the code with a few tweaks
>can be used for Rad but it can also be used in powerful and complex programs
>firemonkey libraries, jedivlc libraries, firedac, etc...

It truly is the best language for serious business and not /g/ usual bullshit.
Not very common though.
actually all my work software is written in it so yeah.

It's a bit too wordy for my taste, i prefer C

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
8 posts and 1 images submitted.
Swift, you fag!
It's for web project, apple fag
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.

That's exactly how extremely early computers were programmed.
You need something to execute it at the Shell level so not purely but if you have kennel level yes.
Of course, assembler just replaces binary sequences with human readable mnemonics, you can write 000111 or hex instead of assembler code, it will be the same.

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?

I literally see no better phone in the market that has:

+ Removable battery & Micro SD (main upside)
+ Waterproof
+ Decent Screen
+ Decent Camera

Have smartphones gone downhill or what?

AGM x2 is probably the phonethat you want to pre order.
>Removable battery

What is this? 2008?
Pay some pajeet to replace phone battery if you can't do it yourself

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?

Maybe you shouldn't download so much porn OP
Great advice.
