it can run the bloat that is chrome. this is a dumb overly specific work load.
>this is a dumb overly specific work load.
Not in the slightest. If it were up to me any dev that didn't heavily optimize their software to run on at minimum 4 cpu cores should be flogged in a public square and then be tared and feathered.

You are projecting yourself, people get these for specific use cases and they know a raspberry is not good for cpu intensive tasks. But they could manage a general computing use case if they have no other choice. Versatile and cheap computers for specific use cases, general end users don't buy rasps ever.

It doesn't look like they just gave 270 million, they just told their idiot customers to pay extra for a phone to feel like they are making a difference and that money would go to AIDS, if they told their customers to pay extra to increase wages it wouldn't fly.

There's so much pessimism around. Not just here, but everywhere, people seem convinced the world is getting worse by the day, or at the best, moving sideways. "In 10 years everything will be the same but worse."

So, /g/ays, what are you LOOKING FORWARD TO being developed in the 2020s to make life better? Nanobots? AI passing the turing test? VR becoming non-shit? Blockchain finally seeing real adoption by multinational corps? The metaverse, even? Come and chill, anons. The world is getting comfier.

Continuing here:
The stands around here are really nice. The road smells of flavored cooked foods, and there are shacks filled with cheap and used electric components, as well as other junk, some more useful and some less.
But, while nice on the surface, you should always keep an eye out for dangers.
Cocaine addicts, videogame addicts, or even pornography cavemans, as some people here call those with a pornography addiction.
These people who would do anything for some dopamine inputs. Stories tell, some began cutting themselves, ripping their own eyes out, just to feel something, just to try out something "Exiting". It's a crazy world the one we live in.
Nonetheless, everyone just keeps going. You just go on, withouth even thinking, and...
In that moment, a man running tried to hit me in the head with a metallic rod. Luckily, he had hit my backpack instead. As he got near me, he grabbed a side of my backpack, leaving the rod on the ground.
While still holding tight to my backpack, I grabbed my gun out of my pocket and shot him in place. Everyone turned for a moment, then just moved on as nothing happened. I took a look at the face of the men that just tried to rob me. He was very old, maybe in his 50s, with a long, grey and uncurated beard. His face worn, as if he had been torn by time, as well as his dresses consumed and with large holes.
I put my gun back in my pocket. He doesn't have anything of value on him, obviously, so I just move on.
I am almost to the train station. After almost 2 hours of walking, I will finally be able to just sit down and wait.
Again, didn't fit in previous post.
Luckily for humanity, trains were never made to be "Smart". All they had to do was bring people from A to B and from B to C. Yet, they added some of the smart crap to them, which now results in meaningless trinkets that don't really do anything but just sit there doing nothing. I don't think anybody even knows anymore what they were really put here for.
Ah, trains, the best traveling method ever invented by humans. Stupid enough that everyone can understand it, and cheap enough that a fallen society can rebuild it with scraps.
Finally on the train, I take out my doomsday communicator (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tX8KjV6DEJk) to contact my wife.
Hopefully, I'll be able to see stay with her in peace for the weekend. Unless something happens to the air conditioning system, or to the power relay, or maybe the hydraulic pump stops working. But what do we care, anyway? Life's as short a breeze. Don't worry, and go on.

Installed Lutris and downloaded some GoG copies of Deus Ex and some other shit.
I made a game file and entered all the info and added the .exe from a local source.
Also got Wine after it prompted me to.
But it is in a total loop, and each time I double click the game it gives me the GoG install screen.
I even went straight into Deus Ex and played the first level fine.
But upon shutting down it asked me to install again the next time.
What the fuck?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Don't put the installer exe as the launcher file then...
They are asking for the exe though?
Or am I fucking up here and they want some other file?

They want the exe containing the game not the installer. You installed the game somewhere in ~/.wine
Find the game's exe where ever it's installed and choose that
Surely not?
the setup process for a game indicates it is supposed to be the whole installation
It even opened the .exe in wine for me just fine
Like I said, it installs the GoG copies fine, they just need reinstalling from scratch each time
Why would it let me install some games once with an exe and not others?
because others have an installer the game exe is in $HOME/Games anon

Apple is pushing developers into planned obsolescence of older versions of macOS.

In order to compile a software that can run on macOS versions older than 12.0, you now need to boot to an outdated OS from an external drive and develop on there instead. Since Monterey will forcefully stop any attempt from running older versions of Xcode that let you do so.
So what? What are you going to do about it?
Apple is right on putting the burden of compatibility on the developers instead on the users, Microsoft's approach is holding Windows back.

thanks just what i needed hopefully i don't screw up my win10 install

strange on my old usb strelec rufus does not allow ntfs i had to stick with fat32

i simply ignored it and logged in i don't want my dads ideapad to be added into some kind of NSA database for intel ME
strangely i never got any offending messages on my lock screen despite 4channing and searching nazi content
all i get is neutral travel images (well except that one time the win11 upgrade was ready)
In general terms, you switch your current unique retail/OEM key to one of the predefined generic VL keys:
Windows understands that it now depends on KMS server for activation, so you need to set one (real or virtual).

That's a single command to set the key, and another to set the server (or run local KMS activator, which usually has a button or a menu item to set the key anyway).

You can probably go the other way, but the Microsoft will see… they will see everything anyway if you use their update servers, and not a local one.

I remember my thinkpad. Then I got a job and bought a Mac.
No. It's worth spending an extra $30 to NOT get the dGPU in those Thinkpads
I have t420, got that because I preferred the keyboard but I feel the chip is getting a bit too old, it is a decade old
I installed win10 but got rid of the most bloat, cleaned inside, repasted heatsink again and get 33-35 idle temps.

Did you lie on your resume to get a /g/ related job?
25 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
It's not illegal, but it can get you blacklisted.
Yes. I say that I have implemented features in projects that I plan to implement in the future.
Nobody asks about them or looks through the code.
But I wouldn't lie about work experience or anything more significant (I'm applying for swe intern positions)
In the UK
has anyone ever noticed that you when google "how to lie on a resume" Google only gives you search results telling that lying on your job is illegal and you shouldn't do it? Pop that same question on English Yandex or whatever and you actually start getting some helpful advice.
I don't know why you were expecting g**gle to give you non-pozzed, uncensored search results, it hasn't done that for well over a decade.

>* (I am pretty sure that) Rust's type system does not support the concepts of HKTs like Monads
You mean something like you can have a trait that's generic over a type, but not generic over a type constructor?
is a pretty retarded typing hack. Error handling is good in that it's simple but it leaves a lot to be desired. No stable generics until 2022. there are a few other retarded decisions here and there but I still love it. It's hard to explain why, but it's fun to program in Go. I think it's cause it's so simple and there's one obvious way to do most things, 80% of the time you're not wondering if there's a more "idiomatic" way that makes use of some meme language feature. Error handling is the only exception, it always feels like you're doing it wrong til you get used to it, and the fact that even the "wrong" way just works. It's very easy to get a program from your brain to the computer without getting bogged down in language-specific details
Error handling is pretty bad, many API feel too low level (all the OS stuff for example), other than that it's really comfy. Preemptive multithreading is great, that's probably what I miss the most in other languages
The main disadvantage of Go is that its built-in abstractions are leaky. This leads to a couple of common pitfalls that are obvious if you know how stuff is implemented, but not if you want to trust the abstraction.
>typed nil
>slice = append(slice, elem)
>goroutine shouldn't capture loop variable
The good news is that all those things can be easily and thoroughly understood. The bad news is that they're not obvious at all.

It's a blue-collar language: very practical but not at all refined.
go is the epitome of what google is whrn it comes to software
fucking disgusting design
