Thoughts on Android development from a technical standpoint? Is it more powerful / better than iOS?
Explain why you aren't compiling your C projects with -std=c89 -pedantic-errors
Non-standard compiler extensions are a crutch and lead to non-portable codebases.
Is there anything wrong with buying a used custom built PC of Craigslist?
Anything that I should look out for? I live in an upper class area so I'd be buying it from someone who more than likely took good care of it.
u don't know how much it's been abused.
buying used gpu alone is a terrible idea because mining

Why would anyone stick to such an outdated OS in this modern day and age? It's over 8 years old now.
You don't see anyone still using Ubuntu 9.04 or Fedora 11.
What's a good clipper/electric razor for shaving my face and genitals?
shit I'm interested too, I used to have an old barun for my face, now I use it on my genitals but since it's not made with the pubic region in mind, it's not really great, sometimes it clips the skin down there.
I also bought a newer phillips clipper for my beard and head.
But I'm interested in what's good for pubic region honestly.

Are they good guys or bad guys?
How the fuck do you get into learning how to repair motherboards like that Louis guy? Does anyone else here do it?
t. guy who had to buy two replacement laptop motherboards and doesn't want to buy a third one
Get an Arduino kit. Get familiar with how basic electronics work. Look into the 7400 series logic chips and play around with those. Study digital electronics first, then move to analog electronics. Get familiar with some of the fundamental components like resistors, capacitors, inductors, amplifiers, op-amps, transistors, etc. It would be worthwhile to start off with a cheap multimeter as well since it will save you lots of time and headache.
With a topic this large, you need to start small. After years of gitting gud, then you'll start to understand that most of the electronics in our world are made of the same little collection of jellybean parts. Repairing motherboards like Louis takes years of off-the-cuff knowledge that you gain just by doing >>61904740
You have 1 (ONE) second to explain why you aren't using the latest stable kernel.
All my old Linux terminal commands still work.
Which applications should I look at installing?
I remember back in 2012 Linux had less than 1% of desktop OS market share. Now it's 2.53%.
Forth is the most technologically superior programming language.
