QRD on the controversy of GPLv3?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
That's not a controversy. Linus is a sellout.
Don't listen to that hack.
gpl3 is more of a sellout, don't listen to stallman either
They closed one loophole, but left another wide open (online software as a service).
AGPL for the win, or the Server Side Public License if you really want to make companies seethe.

don't need to be smart to trade. you just need money. when you have money, you can pay financial advisers to do the jew work for you.
I don't think you understand. I am too dumb to pick a financial advisor. I just throw my money in VTI and hold onto my RSUs. The latter is evidence of my sheer retardation.

I do work for a Wall Street trading firm... from Hungary.

I'm American, so I could just move back, but the difference in pay isn't enough to make up for having to live in New York. I'm not sure why the company even bothers to hire in the US when someone in Hungary or Poland or Russia will do better quality work for less money.

I have this laptop a friend is selling me for 500 bucks, is it worth it?

It has good specs so i thought it was good for the price (at least where I live, where they sell laptops with shit specs for a high amount)

>Specs in Pic

He used it mostly for Autocad and some Photoshop, and I will use it mostly for Audio , Gaming and some graphic design.

But, it has some flaws that I detected:
The keyboard sometimes doesn't recognize the inputs, so i have to press the key until it does and it's annoying af, is it a hardware problem (change keyboard) ir can it be fixed via drivers or software?

Also, the touchpad sometimes doesn't recognize double or even a simple tap, and I can't seem to use the 2 fingers to scroll, how do I fix/enable it?

So, overall, is this a good deal for 500 bucks?
What would I need to do get it to good state, you think i would need to spend extra to fix it?
$500 USD is a price I would pass on, but you know your situation better than I do.

The keyboard might just need to have its cable reseated to fix the issues you mention. Software drivers may help as well, especially if the issue typically happens when typing quickly or pressing multiple keys at once.

Two finger scrolling not working is very likely a driver issue.

If you buy the laptop, go directly to Lenovo.com, type in the serial number (cmd > wmic bios get serialnumber) and download the applications required to do an automatic scan for drivers. Uninstall the scan applications after updates are completed.
>"quad" core Excavator
>keyboard no worky
Yeah that's a screaming deal and you should buy it immediately.
Where the fuck do you live? In colombia I can get a new lenovo ideapad 3 with ryzen 5300u for 500 usd. That thrash in your pic is not worth more than 150
Mexico, but the type of laptops you find on walmart or sears for 500 usd are i3, 4-8Gb RAM, and 500Gb to 1Tb at best, if you want something like an i5 and 8Gb RAM they go up to 1k to 1.5k
This is a bad deal, 16gb AMD 5500U Lenovo Flex 5s NEW cost only $600 and have processors actually releazed in this decade.
Not worth more than $250 IMO, I own a similar system.

Then you haven't practiced enough

the only way to be gud is to practice a lot
it's not a very natural thing unless you are one of those peculiar autists that likes algorithms and data structures in themselves and even then it's really only for people that like competitive programming contests
Have some professional discipline. You'll be doing a lot of boring things in an actual programming job.

Nouns in English typically fall under two categories: mass nouns and count nouns. Count nouns are something you can quantify with a number. For instance: "I have 5 apples; they are green". Mass nouns, by contrast, are never quantified. This is true even if the noun in question represents multiple objects. For instance: "The breakfast I ate at Stucky's was delicious". Here, with further context, the breakfast in question consisted of two pancakes, two eggs, and two strips of bacon, plus a mug of coffee. It is plural, but referred to collectively as a single object. It is worth noting that the objects within this collection we call breakfast are not uniform. A pancake is not a strip of bacon. Accordingly, we can't break it down into some counting term without changing the abstraction. Perhaps we might use a term like "breakfast item" to refer to any of these individual objects interchangeably, but then our plural would not be breakfast, it would be breakfast items.

Data, being synonymous with information, is a mass noun. Like with the breakfast example earlier, we can't break it up into interchangeable objects. When we talk about data, we might indeed have several individual datasets, each of which can be broken down into data points that are not interchangeable with points from other data sets. Allegedly, data is the plural of datum, but in this example, what is a datum? You cannot break down data into individual "datums" in all areas where we use the term, so it does not make sense to conjugate it like a count noun.

Many academics insist on treating data as a count noun, and will thus conjugate it in the most cringy of manners, but those of us who know better conjugate it correctly. And I've found that at least within IEEE, the journal editors will put up with our brazen acts of defiance against a poor choice of grammatical orthodoxies.
Bro I asked a yes or no question that was already answered
It takes less effort to pronounce it "dahtuh" than it does to pronounce it "daytuh". I used to use the latter, but now I'm a dahtuh chad.
The aussies probably pronounce it "date'er," which is fine because if I knew an Aussie into tech, I'd "date'er" if you know what i mean.

I've mostly bought crapple and chinkovo and honestly crapple has been more consistent. I'm totally done with workstations and it's all servers and laptops from now on.

Do not under any circumstances buy any Apple products if that is your attitude. You will only find despair. With Apple, you adapt to the system that Apple created, you don't try and force the products to work in the way you envision is correct like never using an account.
I still can't rock with a company where the repair factor for the entire ecosystem is 0
my ryzen mini PC can do all of that and it has 2 M.2 ports and one sata for a total of a fuckton of storage, not sure why laptops manufacturers can't do the same as a no name chinkbrand like topton.

Check the Steam settings for the location of your Steam Library. Keep in mind that you may have to launch the patcher with the same wine prefix as the game, instead of simply double-clicking it.

You have probably installed something recently, this has nothing to do with your hardware.
Reinstall Windows if you can't remember what you changed.

Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Greetings friendly linuxers, when I ssh into my Ubuntu Server through my Fedora Laptop some strange behaviors occur. When I press backspace the deletion continues right instead, and when i press up it adds it on to the current line instead. Seems to be a visual bug.
dist/full-upgrade basically installs updates in such a way that it removes things that interfere with the upgrade overall, so good for installing new Nvidia drivers. Make sure you restart the PC though.
i see
it updated successfully and i did restart my laptop

I've got a big security concern I just stumbled on with gmail and I want to know what happened. Here's the deets:

1) I previously linked my gmail to a networking service.
2) I sent that service a direct email today.
3) I got a response that showed up in my inbox for a split second. I read about two lines and it disappeared.
4) I only saw it because it wound up in my Thunderbird inbox. I never saw it in my gmail (phone) and I can't get it to appear again in thunderbird.

So what the fuck just happened? If you link an account like that can they just nuke whatever emails they send you? What do I need to be doing differently?
nvm I think I deleted the follow up message by mistake when I thought I just deleted 1/2.

So Thunderbird sucks ass. What's a good alternative?
