Anyone know anything about NSIS errors? Just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and finished updating, only to get a NSIS error whenever I try to install the drivers themselves, or the driver autodetect. Running a R7 360 by PowerColor. Google just gives me a bunch of fucking pajeets saying to run a /NCRC command.
Hello /g/. I've come here to ask for suggestions on a product pitch my group has been working on for a long time for our tech company, which happens to be our first pitch as well. The product in question is the Microtop, a new take on the concept of laptops and netbooks. Basically, it's a significantly smaller and more compact laptop with more power to it than your regular netbook. It's supposed to be aimed towards people who need more power in their hands and either are tired or want to compliment their existing phones and tablets. Need a convenient media center, coding tools, low end computer gaming AND (no or!) general internet experience? Look no further, look Micro™.
For maximum customisation and comfort, users can pick exactly what kind of machine they'll need as we offer systems of different sizes and specs, all while staying compact.
And to solve the many kind of problems that may arise with our planned designs, we're planning on releasing a line of purely optional complements, which are present in the attached picture. By using Virtual Reality (VR) tech to project what the user sees in the glasses' lenses, the Gander Eyewear™ is perfect for dealing with the rather limited dimensions of the screen, as well as helping those with vision problems. Not to mention it comes in various different flavors, which are still in a experimental design phase but with many more yet to come.
Many may also appreciate the Taction Pad™, which serves as a fully functional wireless replacement of the keyboard, as well as a tablet able to interact with the system for various tasks, including homebrewn. Should the need arise in the future or our company sees as fit, many more complements should appear in the future if our product ends up being a success. I humbly thank you for you time and will gladly review, accept and/or comment on any suggestions or genuine criticism proposed here.
Hello /g/. I just got accepted to university. System Engineering faculty, and from what i know, its related to /g/. Is it any good?
What's the best way to learn more about computers and technology? First time poster here
I have this problem where I become irritable and sad and angry often and feel useless because I'm think I'm stupid and it's affecting my life. I'm not sure if learning more about computers and technology will help make me feel better, but knowing more about these things will probably make my problem go away, or atleast be not as bad. So is their any good way to get an introduction into these subjects?
Am I right in assuming you're a complete beginner?
If that is the case, you probably want to start with an A+ certification book. You don't have to actually get certified (it's expensive and of questionable use), but the exam prep books are good at covering a lot of info in an easily-digestible manner. Just go on Amazon and search "A+ certification book" or something like that, and look for one with 100+ reviews and a 4+ average review. You could probably find it at your library or get an ebook version.
Once you know the absolute basics from that book, search things that interest you on google. "Computers and technology" is incredibly broad, you will have to narrow it down after learning the basics.
Why is forth such a superior language? It offers the most bang for your buck but how does it achieve this?

And I'm just baka about paying about twice what she should pay.
I know there are some serious general disadvantages like you can't run anything Windows without dualbooting but what are some model specific issues that I could succinctly list for her to attempt to convince her?
Now she's imo just being somewhat of a hipster but if she needs it then she has to get a mac. I haven't stayed up to date on the differences the past five or so years so I'm not sure. She's doing some fashion industry stuff so she needs to be able to use certain programs like photoshop and for some reason the video editing software not sure which
Now I know in the past there were certain programs that only worked on mac and on top of this required peripherals that only worked on mac and on top of THAT it was for some reason necessary to have a thunderbolt plug
But as of today, can't she just dualboot macos on a Windows pc? They've been using Intel cpus forever, is running macos on a PC normal and feasible? Would it run too slow to be worth it?
I know there are some programs that can just be run from Windows just fine like Photoshop but are there any that still need macos and do you need a thunderbolt plug?
I know that there are no PCs with thunderbolt so if she needs this to plugin some stupid peripheral key to use some stupid mac only program then she has no choice
Sorry for my cancerous post I just can't be arsed to keep up with a herpes infested company like Apple

Can we finally put an end to this meme?
I'm conflicted between getting either an ASUS VG245H or a BenQ ZOWIE RL2455 for gaming on PS4 and (sometimes) Wii U.
I've heard even with AMA turned off, some people have had problems with ghosting on the BenQ.
For the ASUS, the viewing angles are better, but how do you guys feel about hardcore gaming on an IPS panel. Idk if it'll hurt my eyes or what.
Which one do you think I should buy?
Lads, today after 16 years my old Dell L800CXE blew it's PS. Could smell it cooking. Immediately unplugged it. Hopefully the internals are still ok, visual inspection showed everything looked ok (other than the fried ps). I know Dell made there own ATX power wiring screwed up from standard ATX back then so I can't just transplant everything into a new case and call it a day so is there a converter cable around that'll do the job? After some research, i found only one such converter, made by EndPCNoise.com but the link was to a pdf file that was created in 2004
Success! Found a converter that'll work. Take that fucking Dell and they evil designs. Only thing is that I gotta use a non PFC PSU (cause FPC units didn't exist back then) but that shouldn't be a problem. My old Dell and Voodoo 3 2000 will live again! I'll get a mini tower case and new psu later, important thing was getting the converter while I could.
The poor cook ate up all of my corn.
Even Microsoft can't help themselves. MacOS looks so much prettier than their own shitty OS, that they have to put the macOS version of their software in screenshots
I need some advice on picking my focus area for uni. I’m currently in an Info. Tech. program (graduate in 1.5 years). The two options I am flirting between are a Networking and Security focus, or a Information Systems. The former basically encompasses what the name suggests and the latter seems to deal with SQL programming, Database Architecture, and Big Data.
I’m wondering if any of you can speak to either field (pros, cons, whats enjoyable, etc.). I believe I would enjoy networking and security more, but I wouldn’t mind working with information systems if there was a substantial difference in pay.
As a general last question: how prepared did you feel nearing graduation? I am just beginning my focus area studies next semester (Spring ’18) and feel like a total fuckin noob in both Networking and Security and Information Systems (I’ve done some work with data analytics in Python; also decent with Java, perl, bash—never done “professional”-level work though) . But, everywhere I’ve looked said going into your junior year is the latest you should begin looking for an internship. Is it common for interns to go in relatively green? Or should I have a strong enough working knowledge to contribute something of value to the team I’m applying to? For example — if I were to look for a comp security internship, would it generally be enough to understand the Unix/Linux filesystem or should I be able to accomplish stuff like pen testing, security practice advice etc.? What would you say is a "reasonable" level of knowledge to have working in either field?
>Nervous uni student would like advice choosing between Networking and Security or Info. Systems and general survey on how prepared you felt leaving uni and transitioning to RL jobs.
Is there any IT/CS field that is certified pajeet-free? I plan on working mostly with smaller firms to avoid as many pajeets as I can. Thought about doing some form of SWE or backend web dev--but /g/ tells me it's for code monkey pajeets
Don't take advice here, anon. Pick whichever specialization you like and learn. It doesn't pigeonhole you, as nothing is permanent and you can continue learning, well, anything. Everyone gets nervous sometimes, you'll be just fine. You sound like a bright guy, keep it up!
Are Hackintosh computers a reasonable alternative to a normal OSX Mac? If so, what are the best computer models or OSX versions for going about it?
Basically yeah. Everything works fine and as you would expect.
Best computer models: intel i3-i5-i7, maybe pentium but it requires some hacks, intel gpu or nvidia gpu, some amd gpus also work but not all. motherboard - gigabyte or msi, a lot of other ones work. os x - latest.

Hey Guys! This is Austin. Are PC's dead? With everyone using Macs and Smart Phones today, what is the point of buying a cheap prebuilt windows machine when your smart phone can do as much and fits in your pocket or a mac can do more and have no viruses?
