How did you on your latest interview, /g/?

Pic related paints a grim picture for a software development career. I'm myself a Computer Science major and this usually makes me reconsider things.

Please help me lads. I made the mistake of getting a bachelors in Computer Information Systems. I ended up graduating with just some minimal knowledge of C+, MySQL, and other various programs. Not specialized in anything.
I have no experience, no skills, and I'm neck-deep in student loans. Every time I interview for a help desk position or something they ask for things I don't know. What do I do?

>>74795097
Really well and got the job.
It's a company with an MSP doing some of the backend work and I handle day to day stuff.
The person I replaced was a cunt and they were very happy to hear that I've experience in the areas of being the solo sysadmin in an organization and think communication of issues and resolution to users is a main area to focus on as a solo sysadmin

It also probably helped that I literally had a previous job where I was already taking over for a guy who was a cunt and never did anything right but held the company by the balls because he was the only one who knew anything.

These are hands down the worst media remotes I've ever experienced in testing.
>pitiful battery life (have to replace the batteries for the "Enhanced Remote" every 2 weeks)
>frequent disconnects
>lag within app loading
>device occasionally "forgets" remote, necessitating resync
>can die randomly with no chance of reactivating, requiring a replacement
>mic is shit + can't recognize certain words
>sometimes, face buttons will randomly stop working with only the volume + power buttons left working
>IR remotes for the Roku TV OS under TCL & Hisense are even WORSE due to lag, distance from IR sensor, and random disconnects taking several minutes for the TV to recognize the remote again
Cheap fucking Chinese tech. Roku is overpraised & overvalued. Fuck these remotes.

Isometric tileset. Isometric movement is basically just diagonal if you want it tile based. Otherwise free movement is easier to program.

Anyone know of a Windows app that has your webcam display constantly on your screen? I want to use my webcam at work like a mirror so I can always see who's behind me, but most apps have clunky GUI's that take up way too much screen space, I just want a small box in the corner of my screen with my webcam, sort of like what you'd see on a live stream where the users camera is in the corner.

I go to the MacRumors forums. I expect a certain degree of retardation from it's users, and often I close the tab feeling slightly annoyed by their stupidity after I'm done browsing it in that instant.

But today, you know, I see threads like, "does the 16" MacBook Pro kick the 2019 Mac Pro's ass?" and it's like why are you comparing a portable computer to a computer that should be used solely as a professional workstation?

It's like, give me a fucking break. You can't compare the two. I personally think anyone stupid enough to shell out for a Pro Display XDR and a Mac Pro should be sterilized out of the gene pool, but I digress.

Why do Apple users only develop a cursory knowledge of computers and let Tim Apple do the rest of the thinking for them? I don't get it. I have a 16" MBP because well it has features that I desire in a laptop, but that is not to say that if a Windows powered laptop somehow gained the awesome speakers and niche software I use on the MBP that I wouldn't buy it and escape the Apple Hellfuck Community asap.

pls euthanize me.

Just take any windows laptop, smash the keyboard with a hammer, tape up all the vents, and puncture the battery and you'll have the same features as the Macbook.

I've been trying to fix slow transfer speeds between two computers for months, refer to >>74798054 and >>74792450.
tl;dr I have now changed cables, NICs, even the switch they're both plugged into, all the configuration changes you can think of, nothing.

Suddenly occurred to me, is it possible the router could be causing it? Both PCs and the switch are gigabit and both PCs are reporting gigabit connections.

To keep my package count low, I copy paste the whole list of installed packages any time I want to try out some large monolithic meta-package like cups or a DE, and then autopurge the whole list when I'm done so it won't leave shit on my computer.

The only disadvantage you get by merely having more packages installed is additional disk space usage, which is effectively a non-issue considering current storage capacity.

How the fuck does this botnet make money?
>free addon yet somehow make enough money to pay youtubers tens of thousands of dollars to shill to dumb zoomers
>claim that they make money from "commissions"
>makes absolutely no sense because why the fuck would a site pay honey a commission for getting a customer to pay less
Obviously they're just selling data but how are they making so much money just doing that? The amount of ads I see for this botnet is insane, they must somehow be making millions.

This is going to make all other operating systems completely obsolete.
