Basically anyone that doesn't succumb to herd behavior is a genius these days.
Being autistic doesn't make you a genius.
no there's plenty of contrarian retards, most people on this board for example
>IQlets will reject this
I remember when the term autistic was embraced by many of us who exhibit irregular behavior. Now it's used as an insult for anyone slightly outside of the status quo. It's also used as a derogatory term for anyone above average intelligence. Intelligence-shaming is something that n[black]rs people do.

Confirming to non-conformity is but an abject form of conformity.

Everything about calculating physics is trivial, what apparently isn't trivial is actually figuring out what domain your problem falls under.

You don't need to worry about the three body problem if you don't need autistic collision detection, and if you don't need autistic collision, then you can dedicate resources to more important game tasks
I don't even know of any games that have perfect collision detection. You can knife into a wall but nobody thinks it's a big deal.
>If collisions occurred at a certain time step,
the collided objects bounced off each other by simply
exchanging translational and rotational velocities.
You just let the collisions happen and deal with them after the fact
>but jitter!
>Everything about calculating physics is trivial
Collision detection isn't trivial, it's one of the biggest uses of CPU in video games and usually the first thing to cause a slowdown if there's too many objects

>I don't even know of any games that have perfect collision detection
Nearly all of them. "Perfect collision detection" doesn't mean what you see is what is colliding - it means the invisible collision detectors are colliding properly

>You don't need to worry about the three body problem if you don't need autistic collision detection
You do need "autistic" collision detection

>but jitter!
would ruin a fucking game

why do people talk about subjects they have no knowledge in

My interested dropped to zero in about 200ms. Imagine how it will perform in real world conditions.
usb keyboards have some really shitty latency.
a ps/2 keyboard can have a latency of around 4ms
Unless you're using a UEFI board that emulates PS/2 in which case they are exactly the same.
>Unless you're using a UEFI board that emulates
I have no idea about that, but it would not surprise me with how fucked modern tech is

I just find it really sad how laggy modern tech is. Did you know that pc-gamepads pre-usb had an input lag of 0, yes 0. The directInput api was polled, but not the shitty kind of asynchronous polling which usb uses, no this was the good kind. The application called a function to read the state of the gamepad and then that state was then fetched right there and then from the gamepad, the game receives the most up to data state of the pad just when it needs it.
Ya USB has isochronous mode for USB microphones which would be better but you need to get a driver signed whereas standard HID polling at 8ms intervals does not.

I'm a eurofag in some no name German university and my ex gf is moving to NYC next semester but she has a rich dad who could afford it. I can't, how do I get a tech job there. I'm still in college but I don't wanna be living in a different country while she rides the cc in amerimutt land. Anybody got an idea?

70K is respectable and enough for anyone who isn't retarded. Good on you. My first stable tech job was in NYC as a sysadmin for a small cluster of tiny private schools (3 in total). 68K a year + benefits. Looking back I should have kept it for another year or two. Was maximum comfy, and haven't found anything that pays so much for so little work since.
Thanks. Im assuming you didnt live in NYC? How much were you able to save?
I was able to land an apartment near the schools in NYC actually. It took some hunting and research, and about two weeks keeping everything in a uhaul and crashing at my folks and at friends' houses, but I eventually did find a place that only ate up about 20% of my monthly income, and I didn't even need roommates. The key was to look for areas that were steadily becoming "yuppified" or "gentrified", and hunt down apartments around half a mile away from the most noticeably improved areas. I worked the job for 2 years, did a lot of side projects for the schools (and some private work for some of the wealthier parents) at high hourly rates, and ended up being able to save about 25K before quitting and moving to another state.
Damn that actually sounds pretty cool. Why did you decide to move out?

student in electrical engineering here, currently in 9th semester.
i got as far with only studying 2 days before each exam, which over the semester equates to less than 2 hrs per day.
maybe i should add that i got a tested iq of 143, perhaps that helps
just dont be a brainlet and you will be fine.

Although I'm in the market for a new laptop.
I'll sit at home and buy some socks and roos online, maybe a replacement lg flip phone since mine's feeling as tight as an old toilet seat.
do they normally have a large sale? They have sales all the time
hopefully a job soon
Nothing, I'm waiting until the week after to catch the deals on used components from people falling for the trap and upgrading for no good reason but "it was 10 dollars lower than its ever been"

I've already encrypted my entire drive. I use a smart card with PIN to unlock the BIOS. My policies and groups are set up correctly. How do I rig my laptop to melt down if the hard drive/ram are removed/replaced? I want my computer to never be usable to anyone but me from now to eternity.

Simply putting a password on the BIOS will be enough for normies. Anything else can easily and cheaply be reversed or replaced.
>I use a smart card with PIN to unlock the BIOS.
Unless you are running seabios/libreboot it does not matter.
Encrypt your drives with a big key and store it on the TPM.
Bring it to an apple store and ask a genius. They are very supportive, I'm sure they will be able to address your issue :)
whats the best way to encrypt a linux laptop fully?
During installation, select LUKS partition. Otherwise veracrypt or similar.

Yes, you can use it with Win10 as long as you put 2GB+ and you'll do fine, IF you plan to use Win8-10, if you want to use Win7, you can go for a P4HT...
