fucking hilarious. one screenshot of a cursor destroys the communist child rapists and their fake documents. when you livestream your suicides, don't forget about us and post links so we can all enjoy the stream.
So do you deny Pfizer engages in gain of function research on viruses?
Same with Twitter before musk bought it and had journos dig through the entire files. It's suspected that other sites do it as well. So sooner or later those proofs should come up. We have direct proof from Twitter.

So claims like "it's private company" means nothing when that's a blanket for government body advising censorship.

Ever wonder why these blatant troll threads that violate the only rule in the sticky are never deleted while the mod is literally in these threads all day deleting posts?

Because the apple nigger mód is the OP posting from his iphone. He spends 20 hours a day of his worthless NEET life posting these falseflag troll threads, deleting posts exposing him as the OP, and saving his anti-linux anti-windows troll threads from page 10 after every 1-3 hours of no bites.

The only way to purge these shit threads off /g/ is to put a bullet in his head.

Still.sucks anus
why is zero rpm bad? we're talking low temps below 50 anyway. and that's thousands of hours of fans spinning uselessly in idle.

also anyone know how adrenalin works with fans? it says that zero rpm ends at 50°, but i'm not quite sure that's true.
Have you cleared cmos?
A gpu fault wouldn't cause a boot loop anyway btw
I have a gtx 1060 6gb, I wouldn't get much benefit in games by going from a 1st gen ryzen 1600 to a 5800X3D, right? I'm kinda torn, there's a good deal for one right now, I don't know if there will be good deals for that CPU in the future, and I can't really afford that and plus a brand new cooler. Think I can undervolt it a tidbit and cool it with a hyper TX3?
zero rpm is defined by your partner cards bios. you can check or edit it with morepowertool.
zero rpm is bad when its implemented incorrectly+the card has a garbage heatsink&heatpipe design. the fans will start and stop under any small load. a good card will remain off at idle and in low load games.

You get what you deserve
POSIX a shit. I'll use it for scripts but I don't let it touch my terminal
> Nobody really likes C++ or CMake
I don't mind C++ but I detest CMake which I use at work. The projects are annoying to configure and build which is why I don't bother with C++ OSS projects. Especially with the lack of standard ways to do things, people always implement their own version of features in boost or qt or what would be a decent standard library.
Interested to see how this goes.
lol have fun working on it alone I guess
because the reason theyre switching to rust sounds like fish is about to dip in quality and if fish dips in quality while being not posix compatible, Id rather use something else

Does the KMS activator activate Office 365?
Yeah, if you install Office 365 via an Office 365 Pro Plus Retail IMG file when you activate it with KMS_VL_ALL it converts the license into an Office 2016 Mondo VL one while still giving you everything 365 has.
It's also recommended to disable the scheduled tasks in the Microsoft/Office folder to kill the telemetry it has from even starting.

Is there any good alternative to pic related?
I want a sleek, silent, high quality laptop for browsing and working (programming). I want a nice battery and a good screen. I don't need high performance.

I've looked around and it seems that a Mac seems to be the best you can get right now, but I am not an Apple user and don't want to get into the ecosystem. I use Linux for work.
Dell XPS 13 but it's more expensive
Lenovo X1 Carbon but like the second hand ones that are sold refurbished or from offices (once they are replaced)
>close to a Mac
So you want a laptop that sucks? Why? Buy something good if you can. Check TPG for good thinkpads. I repaired enough applel crap to know that everything applel ever made is trash.
>Check TPG for good thinkpads

I think people nowadays want a light laptop with a good battery and screen that couldn't be used as a doorstop or kill someone when flung.

Wouldn't this make me an all around better programmer? If the game I want to make can't be made easily using existing engines without me being competent at programming in the first place wouldn't it make more sense for me to create my own engine? Existing engines like Unreal seem to have shit netcode and multithreading support.

just trust da basedense
Most hobbyist and indie devs just want to make a game. Making an engine, even for a simple 2d game, you quickly lose sight of what you set out to build. Before you know it you're building all kinds of tools and designing file formats and all kinds of things like that instead of just working on your game. Using an existing engine gives you a lot out of the box.

The happy medium I think is just pick an open source engine with a permissive licence that'll let you fork it. And should you need to do some customisation for rendering or whatever, you can just modify it or pick one which lets you customise things without having to change the main source (some kind of module/plugin driven architecture, again something you don't need to waste time building yourself).

In the old days, smaller indie studios could get away with their own engine because it was: heavily optimised based on the kind of games they made and they could re-use for multiple games. And in a time when people actually bought licensed proprietary software, they also had a commercial angle to license the engine to other studios. Today given the wide variety of engines that cover a lot of the common use cases (and a lot with the source available or some SaaS model).
>why does everyone say not to reinvent the wheel constantly
>wouldn't it make more sense to reinvent the wheel?
Theoretically, yes, you will become a better programmer by making your own engine. Pragmatically, you will just give yourself a massive project and headache in order to make a half-hearted half-assed project that won't even approach the feature set of a professional game engine. Writing your own game engine is no joke, just like writing your own operating system is no joke.

Would the world be a better place if everyone had to program their own OS in order to own a computer? Maybe, but more likely no one would ever get anything fucking done. We're just a bunch of monkeys at typewriters, the worst thing we can do is to do what everyone else has already done for us instead of improving the existing code and making something new with it.
ashkenazim are disgusting, not cute
>have 2000 hours available to make your game
>spend 1500 hours developing, testing, fixing and improving the engine
>only 500 hours left to actually work on the game itself
>have 2000 hours available
>spend maybe 100 hours studying the engine's documentation
>pour 1900 hours into the game

making your own engine only gives you a good return of investment if you reuse it a few times
do you think AAA game studios reuse engines for the lulz or because they don't have good programmers? it's because it takes a lot of time and effort you could be using to work on the game instead, the people telling you to not make your own engine just want you to be aware that you have to budget your time carefully, and that engines can be a timesink
