Those that you mentioned are not only the only ones with wide gamut support but are also the third best thinkpad screens after the HDR and OLED ones; everything else seems to be a downgrade/lower tier even the IPS ones
Also wide gamut aka aRGB is already out of favor, its all HDR/DCI P3 now

Sounds dumb, but Perl can return arbitrary structures on the "stack". I think I've heard it does manipulation behind the scenes for pointer-y performance reasons, but there's lots of shenanigans you can do in it, and it has a large amount of libraries and a responsive community forum. Includes networking support with libs, and there's object-oriented modes but I don't know how far down that rabbit hole you can go. In terms of "maybe?"-oriented bullshit, Perl has a built-in undef, for when no value has been assigned, or you want to indicate that there's no value present.

Iterating through hashes of hashes can get messy, and I find regex fun, but that's me. Perl also has some interesting argument syntax, arrays get flattened I think, but you can pass a referenced to a list of individual elements on the spot. It's also better not to specify arguments, which makes things a little refreshing, but you still probably store them on the next line if you're using my (value1, value2) = @_ style storage.

I played with perl a long time ago and didn't like it, and I hate regex. Thanks anyway though
>>
>>69824574
I was working in this problem and I resolved it but I just can help and think there is a better way to do it:

Given a sequence of integers as an array, determine whether it is possible to obtain a strictly increasing sequence by removing no more than one element from the array.

Note: sequence a0, a1, ..., aN is considered to be a strictly increasing if a0 < a1 < ... < aN.
Sequence containing only one element is also considered to be strictly increasing.

Examples:
For the sequence [1, 3, 2, 1], the output should be
almostIncreasingSequence(sequence) = false.

For the sequence = [1, 3, 2], the output should be
almostIncreasingSequence(sequence) = true.

How would Emacs look if it was created nowadays?

Probably a dumb question:
How do I check the length of the columns in a 2D array rather than the rows?
e.g. the following iterates through length of the current row:
for(int i = 0; i < matrix[row].length; i++) {...}


How can I do this with the current column instead?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the quality of the reviews, I agree that they're actually quite comprehensive and they do a good job. Just interesting that nobody else seems to get (or even want) a word in. Why are western reviewers so fixed on the expensive stuff here? Surely I can't be the only one that lives in a developed nation but loves how cheap yet capable these budget models are. I guess the jews really do have their claws in deep here.

Mass storage thread / RAID / NAS / Home server.
I'm looking to help my musician friend keep about 25tb of data backed up safely and affordably. I'm thinking a n4810 4 bay for $250 with 4 10tb shucked drives for $170 each before tax. Links below. I'm thinking RAID 5 to get one drive fault tolerance for 30tb of storage at a total of about $995 after tax. Can /g/ beat that?

No reason besides the dev not wanting to work on it anymore.

Should starting a new software project in C be a crime?
Why is it allowed to build software using inherently unsafe languages?
Why do we expect from a C programmer to be an infallible automaton?
Why do C programmers themselves try to enforce this harmful mindset on each other?
Why not let the computer to do all the checks instead of relying on the imperfect human mind?
