You need to make the ISO bootable. It's very easy. I suggest using an open source & free (as in freedom) program like Rufus or Etcher to turn any USB stick into a bootable device.

Never left it. Freenode is by some distance still the best place for technical discussion and has the most participants. Rest of IRC is dead tho.

Discord is too focused on gaming and has few dedicated technology/computer science/engineering rooms. Matrix is dead apart from people talking about Matrix or crypto kiddies. No one uses Xmpp.

most people type on their screen in portrait anyways so its not exactly some kind of earth shattering difference. now that im used to it, a landscape keyboard seems like it would be a bit slower since the buttons are far apart.
..as a cell phone? to message people? the primary use case like 75% of the population uses their cell phone for? i dont have a laptop. if i cant do it on my phone i can remote into my computer and do it there.
the unihertz titan basically just arrived to customers this week to massive dissappointment with a shitty and completely unusable keyboard and the f(x)tec does seem pretty awesome but its so niche that there isn't much word out about it besides prerelease stuff and it may or may not have fully functional android support
Sorry to tell you but it's a lost cause already. China owns trillions of US debt, your country is already theirs.
stop reading newspapers owned by the chinese because rupert murdoch hocked it off to them so he can pretend his business isn't failling

the chinese rely on the US and they've embroiled themselves into a codependent relationship to try and make sure that they cant go down unless we go down and vice versa. most companies buy their bottom dollar shit from china so it is kind of a lost cause in some aspects but that doesn't mean i'm just going to give up and violate my integrity as if its inevitable like some kind of europrean

There isn't unless the monitor isn't larger than 24". The internet cafe I used to go when I was abroad had 27" 144hz monitors they really had pixellated/grainy look on the so based on my own experience I'd advice not to get a 27" 1080p model. I'd rather get the 24" of that same monitor, 24G2U.

You can give everyone a shitload more of IPv6 and there still wouldn't be a shortage in the next 100 years or longer
This is exactly what is happening. IP 6 addresses are given out like free falafels. I think you can literally get 16,000 at a time without paying a penny, and repeat the process. They will all be taken soon.
if you want your networked business apps in winderz to work reliably and quickly you disable ipv6. it's always been a bullshit meme.
>They will all be taken soon.

That sounds like it's your shitty business apps that are the issue, not the networking standard.

Maybe try another PCIe port.

Is real OOP basically the same as real FP?

selectGreaterThan: value
^ aList select: [:n| n > value].

selectGreaterThan value
= filter (\n -> n > value) aList

The first is Smalltalk, the second is Haskell. Have the Java and C++ monkeys pulled the wool over our eyes by making us think that they're the real OO languages?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
If you can read that, you probably have sand in your crack, so that's why you're so pissed off.
Nygaard and Dahl's OOP was quite different and didn't make a radical break with old paradigms. It is still an influence on Smalltalk but ultimately Nygaard and Dahl preferred to use their work simply to make it possible to define abstract datatypes rather than to implement the goals Kay had.
>Nygaard and Dahl's OOP was quite different and didn't make a radical break with old paradigms
Wrong. Simula-67 had everything modern OOP has, from virtual methods to polymorphism and inheritance, even garbage collection. All that while using an ALGOL-like syntax, which was widely known at the time.

Smalltalk literally adds nothing new except a weird ass syntax.
Alan Kay actually invented the term object-oriented programming and he listed these three characteristics of it:

>Local retention
>Protection of state-process

These are all in Smalltalk. Not so much in Simula. Inheritance and virtual methods and polymorphism don't even come into it. Polymorphism naturally emerges from messaging because different objects can handle messages differently. Inheritance can be implemented atop messaging by having an object send messages it doesn't understand to a member representting its superclass, and messaging achieves the same thing as does virtual methods, plus more.

ALGOL-like syntax is just an idol. It isn't special. I prefer the more readable Smalltalk syntax. It is clean and simple, in a similar way to how Lisp's S-expressions are. Someone who doesn't know Smalltalk syntax but does know ALGOL-like syntax will disagree, but that's only because they've already had their brain reshaped by extensive use of ALGOL-like syntax. We would have to conduct an experiment on syntax-naive subjects to determine which is the easier to get to grips with, of course.
>Is real OOP basically the same as real FP?
No. You know, syntax is not the same as semantics.
