Hopefully quick question with easy solution.
My curved monitor is starting to separate at the top of the screen (so the screen is straightening out while the frame is remaining curved, showing a thin peak of light along the top). Is there a safe/easy way to solve this? I was thinking glue but wanted to ask before I do anything so not to damage the monitor.

Why is is that the vast majority of CS grads are completely retarded, to put it politely?

They can't write code without youtube tutorials, they never know what they're talking about and they regurgitate one of two things which entirely depends on what teachers they had. Either it's "USE SEPPLES, AUTOMATIC PERFORMANCE HNNNNNGH" or "OOP bad mkaaaay".

Is it really piss easy to graduate in computer science or what? I'm a welding basement programmer.

You try training all the specialist jobs involved in building "structures" (all sorts of wood/stoneworking, electricians, painters, solar roof installers, machine operators and many more) plus then also theoretical physicists, chemists, business planners and architects and more rolled up in one degree and see whether you manage to get results that look like they're flawless.

Comp.sci graduates from srs universities are still better at offering this all-in-one package that is often required, but they're not necessarily beating people who specialized in applying that one Python framework for applying that one Python framework - no shit.
>listen to /g/ about CE being better than CS

Fuck this shit. I'd rather do OOP bullshit in Java for 4 years than spend it soldering microprocessors.

They're working on a reverse engineered implementation of Flash that is coded in Rust will work on both desktops and in browsers.
You'll still be able to play things like Nanaca Crash, etc without needing an old browser and the security issue ridden Adobe Flash plugin.

My company will pay for a laptop worth up to $1.5k
I would keep the rest if it's under that. I can buy used, as long as they are in good condition.

I found a T480 for $1.4k with i7-8550U, MX150, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
My needs would primarily be running machine learning code in Python and also preferably video editing and rendering in Premiere Pro. Light gaming would be cool but not a necessity.
Would this Thinkpad be completely overkill for my needs and I could just get a cheaper one with negligible performance decrease on my workflow or should I just go with this one?

Just a warning to not fall for this garbage (Criptext). It glows really hard. I am 100% sure about this.
There's been an enormous amount of shilling for this crap recently, probably by the CEO himself since it's still a very small and new company.
Go on any /g/ archive and search for "criptext" and you'll see what I mean.
The same copy-pasted garbage that they take from their own website with buzzwords like "Signal Protocol", "Whitepaper" and other crap. Do not believe them. No regular user would write replies like this. They are shilling it here because a lot of /g/ users tend to care about their privacy, therefore it's the ideal audience for their (((service))).
They most likely store all your emails and sell them all to the highest bidder. E-mail is insecure by design no matter which service you use (unless you use something like PGP on top of course).
Check out non-email alternatives for example on privacytools.io if you want actually secure mailing (not gonna name any specific projects to avoid being called a shill as well, but there are very good alternatives that have already existed for many years, there is one in particular that I really like).
They are probably also the same people creating these threads recently asking "What's the best free email provider?" and then they just reply to their own threads to shill their botnet, I am not completely certain about this part specifically, but it does seem pretty likely that this is the case as well.
Their Twitter is just random retarded quotes so they can try to make themselves look smart, amazing and be like "woow look we really care about your privacy dood".

Criptext is a Jewish botnet that's being heavily shilled on /g/ recently (huge shillwave) and glows in the dark.
Do not use under any circumstances, unless you love sucking the NSA's cocks.
Complete garbage. Tell others to not fall for it either.

Watch out for any and all shilling that takes place (not just Criptext-related shilling).

The last good e-mail server.
Hasn't it been offline for years?
Just look at some of these

Judging from what I've seen so far this seems extremely suspicious to me, especially because most of these replies mentioning Criptext have been popping up very very recently even though the service has existed for far longer. It looks like a very typical shillwave. Just look at the archive I linked.

https://rbt.asia/g/thread/68103402/#68103402 is probably the most suspicious to me, simply because... why would anyone post this? And why would they word it like that? "Criptext now available on linux!! Try it out!" This does not seem like something a typical /g/ user would just post, but rather what a Criptext staff member would post.

>Also, what are you supposed to call the Signal Protocol, if not by it's name?
You have a point, however they're using it (imo) in a very buzzwordy fashion, further raising my suspicions about it. It's very similar to how companies have been throwing around the word "Blockchain" randomly to get more investors.

>How? The emails are stored on your device, rather than on their servers.
That is correct, but only *after* Criptext servers have received the emails unencrypted, because email itself is insecure, meaning they can absolutely just store the unencrypted versions on their servers (which they probably do). They're marketing the whole service as the non plus ultra of email and call it "true email privacy", when it's absolutely not. The only true email privacy is PGP and similar (or even better, avoiding email altogether).

>What are the more secure alternatives, and what do they use to be more secure?
I wanted to avoid mentioning any to avoid having people go "but now you are the shill!!!!!", but whatever, I was mainly talking about Bitmessage, it's really cool you and I think you should go check it out. It's similar to Bitcoin in some ways, but the main advantage over email is that nothing gets stored unencrypted on any servers or whatever (P2P), literally only the receiver can read the emails. Your "account" can't be censored or deleted either. No info required at all to create a key pair. Pretty damn cool imo although development has slowed down quite a bit unfortunately. You can call me a shill now as well but Bitmessage is objectively more secure in every way compared to email and doesn't try to be (((an email provider that keeps your privacy))), because none of them can or do.
