That's still entirely your own fault for using equality operators on some arcane shit instead of numbers. Which is something that never happens in practice, unless you wish to again refer to >>69443427

When will JS get a 8==D~ operator?
equal reference maybe
>x === y
false because different objects
>x < y
false because 0 isn't less than 0
>x <= y
true because 0 is equal to 0

720p is the most based resolution for quality and storage size

they're a phoneposter, what do you expect
I'm not a phoneposter but the image was in png, I guess it was saved in jpg and then resaved in png

We are increasing the sizes of our screen as we are increasing resolution. There are now 82" inch TVs you can buy, while a 55" used to be considered a big TV just a few years ago.

Resolutions must be increased as detail is lost very fast as screen size increases. A 24" 1080p screen has roughly the same PPI as a 49" 4K screen.

720p is bad because it will be useless in a decade or so when you will be hard pressed to find any monitor in production under 32".
3840x2160 is UHD, not 4K (4096x[Ratio])
7680x4320 is QUHD, not 8K (8192x[Ratio])
Get your fucking facts straight. TV standards are not real standards, they dumb down the real standards.

Yo /g/entoomen, I've finished reading this book and was wondering if there was another recommended book that is more "modern". The book is great and all, but the C landscape has changed in the last 40 years.
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
stop reading books and start writing programs.

after you learned the language, it's time to learn the practices, it's what distinguishes good programmers from bad ones.

will you make it a table and lookup or will you write if-else if... chains? will you name local variables like i, p, src, tmp or loop_counter, pointer, source_variable, temporary_variable?

read "practice of programming", read high quality codes, there are approachable projects for that, you don't need to start reading linux kernel (which i doubt if high quality at all).
>CMake is the second to be recommended, but I'm too lazy to learn it and it appears to me to be the pinnacle of gnuistic clusterfucks.
It's also surprisingly hard to port to new platforms and increases the amount of stuff your code requires on the target system (the generates Makefiles call back into cmake).
cmake is absolutely disgusting. i really like android's build system, recently i converted cmake for encfs to android.

CMakeLists.txt: 244 lines
Android.mk: 42 lines

it's mostly source file names in .mk, it would be 15 lines if i write all source files in one line.

Android version actually builds for arm, x86 and arm64.

the intermediate files of cmake makes you suicidal, it's almost impossible to troubleshoot.

meson + ninja seems to be a better option but i write makefiles for each OS/arch, mostly just android and linux. never failed so far.
anyway, one thing I did not figure out yet is how to write a good unit tests in sane way
I like static correctness and making functions file-scoped when not necessary to keep them being a small module, but this prevents their importing for tests.
The ok test frameworks are all C++, so I can't just put the unit tests into the same file.

Note: to import C functions into C++, use this in header files:

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {

// content of the header file

hey /g
my finals are tomorrow and I dropped my new laptop MSI GV62 7RD, it's already expensive in my country and I am already diagnosed with OCD, so I take care of my electronics like I care for myself. When slowly taking it out at uni from the bag, it barely slipped still in its bad, maybe 4 inches, and the vent grill protection came out.
How do I deal with it because it cant be fixed, even if I open up the laptop. Plus it would void the warranty.
If the vent grill fell out it probably wasn't necessary and you don't need it. Just continue using it as normal.

how do you deal with lumbar pain?

These are the only correct answers. Barbell training is the only thing I've found that consistently fixes my chronic back pain, preventing it from reoccurring.
Chair, desk setup, stretches, chiropractor, massage, braces don't work in long run. Desk setup does address short term fatigue.
A correctly performed deadlift is one of the most effecient excercises one can do for increasing strength - it taxes more muscles than nearly every other excercise and is particularly good for people to perform as most people will bend down to pick things up in day-to-day life which gives a practical benefit to a deadlift.

It isn't like you need to be aiming to pull (despite the name a deadlift is a pulling motion) 200-250kg+. Unless you are truly an arch-using tub lord pulling bodyweight for reps will immensely strengthen your core AND it will fix your posture (as you can't deadlift properly with bad posture).

Can we stop this war between Linux and Windows, they're two very different operating systems for two very different people. Linux is made for people who like to customise their computer as much as they can. Windows is made for people that want something to work straight out the box, without having to set things up.
>stop arguing faggos
>they're both good in different ways
Based. We should stop fighting and laugh at iToddlers together.
Sure but Linux is a kernel, not an OS.

>Windows is made for people that want something to work
I will accept this as true as long as you accept that "something" is limited to spying and loss of freedom. Remember the job of Windows is not to work for you, but to work for Microsoft in taking your freedom away.

>Windows is made for people that want something to work straight out the box, without having to set things up.
The opposite is true. I work in a computer repair shop and part of my job is refurbishing old computers for resale. This includes installing a new OS. We offer Winshit 10 by default and Winshit 7 or Linux Mint if people ask. Maybe 20% of all machines work right with Winshit out of the box, whereas 80% are fully functional with Ubuntu and derivatives. Winshit always needs drivers for odd shit like wireless cards, iGPUs, and other things that work by default on Linux. Granted, a lot of these drivers can be installed from the device manager over the internet. Then again, I don't know why they aren't installed by default. Windows just sucks.

though every device capable of accessing 4chan is fundamentally flawed as a productivity device
The browser refreshing issue persists even after allowing up to 4 processes to run in the background through the developer options. I STILL have ~3GB of ram not utilized. Do i have to somehow unlock additional ram usage? I should not have to deal with a browser refresh after every 15 minutes of 'inactivity'.
