Not him, but how do you "learn" assembly? I had to do some projects on an Arduino at uni, the chip had something like 250-ish instructions and 99% of the effort was searching through the 200-page manual to figure out what instructions would work for what you're doing, and checking references of what all the registers and shit do.
Doesn't x86 have a couple thousand instructions or something? Does "learning assembly" mean that you're expected to memorize a large enough subset of those so as to be able to only check the reference manual for more esoteric tasks? Because that sounds completely useless unless you're actually going to be directly applying that memorised knowledge in your job. Or does being comfortable with writing problems without the syntax sugar of high level languages count as "learning"? Because that sounds trivial. Might as well "learn" brainfuck or something.
And now you know why C exists.
Of course, but why are people still advocating for learning assembly, not out of necessity, but as a learning experience?
Unless the idea is for them to come to the same conclusion as me, but then the advice should rather be to "experience assembly", not learn one.
anon, this is genius

More marketshare and interest because of vidya compatibility = more companies willing to put the effort in to support the platform
How does this make sense in this context though? apt literally does nothing different than rpm or pacman or anything else. They're just tools to install packages, remove them, update them, upgrade them, and, well, manage them. What useful "choice" is made possible by having many different standards that all do the exact same shit but require the maintenance of several different types of packages? Why are there "Debian packages" "Fedora packages" "CentOS packages" "Ubuntu packages" "OpenSUSE packages"? This does not provide any functionality of benefit to the user. It just adds more work and takes more maintenance time that could be better spent elsewhere if we had just "Linux packages"
If one particular software has fundamental issues, a bug, or security flaws you can change what you use.
Unlike proprietary where the bug affects everything ever.

Fragmentation is a meme, it's a strength to have a bug always effect a minority of users and to just allow them to walk around this kind of dysfunction.

If I didn't have the ability to say "wow fuck apt I'll use dnf now." I wouldn't use gnu/linux at all.

Oh no: Literally one gentoo user who uses bumblebee accidentally got a version of a single package that wipes /usr on a very particular date, oh the humanity!

Oh fuck: Microsoft pushes half baked updates and paves the user folders of 100's of thousands of users unintentionally because all the software is exactly the same.
Canincal will force everyone to use snapd and end all distros. In the end, to set the dominance, they'll behead Stallman and rebrand Ubuntu into Linux, the only linux distro available.

I am still on the fence about getting a 64GB shark card.
Does this seem good?
Seems ok. Depends on the OS and software
You could buy something far better for that price, don't do it, buy a pocophone f1 instead or the new xiaomi mi 9.
You will damage the screen pretty quickly by the look of it. Also foldable phones are coming and will be a far better choice. Just get a pocophone like >>69884953 suggested.

I own a Victrola 8-in-1 nostalgic entertainment system (Got it for Christmas) and when I was testing it and I put a record on the platform, turned it to 33 & 1/3, pushed the "Phono" button and I noticed the audio was very slow compared to other audio from youtube or my CD's of the same song and I need help determining what the problem is and how I can fix it. What do?
sounds like you were playing a 45 at 33 1/3
It's a full sized album. I switched it to 45 and 78 also just to make sure but it was way to fast. I have plenty of 45's and I know that not it. Any help?
it should have controls to change the operating speed

here's a quick guide: https://reverb.com/news/dialing-in-your-turntable-speed

basically the ticks on the side of the turntable should look like one solid line when it's operating at the right speed

if your turntable doesn't have ticks you'll need to buy a calibration disc
thank you

What makes the 1080 TI so great? It's not the top benchmark for GPUs, isn't exceptional for its price over competition, and yet it's installed fucking everywhere. Every normie PC gamer has one of these fucking things.

>bought a card thats slower than my 1070 with RT cores so weak it cannot even run raytracing which is useless anyway.

later this year when AMD launches the Navi10 for 249$ and it destroys your 2060 I fully expect you to kill yourself.
If you got it on sale it was basically the best GPU you could get for <$1k for a while. I wouldn't spend more than $500 on one and they regularly retail for twice that now. Also 11gb vram
Up until the 2080Ti it was the top-tier card that wasn't a Titan and if you kept your eyes open you could get one for $500-$600. It's still probably the best price/performance card for nvidia.
The price gap between it and all the other lumped together cards (Vegas and 1070Ti/1080) was still low enough to get a lot of buyers that want/need the performance bump for higher res/refresh gaming. It also helps that it was the only card at that performance level until now, and even now it's still the best value proposition for anyone who wants to play new graphically intensive games at a resolution at 1440p+.
>"Just wait" posturing for AMD again

There is NO INFORMATION about Navi for you to base that on. Why are you so fucking stupid?

So I have an old Acer Aspire 5315 that has an Intel Celeron M530 1.73Ghz single core CPU in it. I last used it in the Summer of 2015 to remote into my Bitcoin LAN miners since I hardly had a purpose for it anymore. I think WinXP was just starting to become obsolete around then.
It originally came with Windows Vista installed, and I found some drivers to make the wireless card work properly with WinXP.
I used to dualboot WinXP and Linux Mint 4 (Gnome) with it. I haven't used it regularly since ~2009, but I know it still runs great even though the battery can't hold a charge. I took great care of it, upgraded the DDR2 RAM from 1GB to 2GB, and the power cord and connector to the laptop isn't bent or broken, so it should work fine. I played a ton of F.E.A.R. on it back in the day.

I'd hate to have to throw it away or sell it. It still works as good as day one, even though it has an old IDE hard drive in it. It's probably not worth more than $50 on ebay, and the thing is basically spotless.

Is there an OS worth installing to it? I'm thinking Windows is out of the question at this point, so it would have to be some Linux distro that runs very lightweight. Not sure if there's a decent browser that can run on such low specs.

Is there a better CPU to install to this chipset? Is an SSD even possible? Or even a SATA HDD? I think it still has USB 1.0, I might be lucky with a single USB 2.0. Currently digging around trying to find it.
8 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
The BIOS says a Hitachi HTS541680J9SA00 is installed, so it sounds like it is SATA. So I could drop in a slow SSD. I think I have an old one lying around I could use.

Anything else besides Arch Linux? Doesn't have to have a pretty UI or anything. Just as long as I can do basic stuff, open a webbrowser, etc.

What HDD recovery options does Linux have? Before I put a few different OSes on this I want to see what I can recover. I'm also limited to 32bit.
If you want a nice lightweight preconfigured Debian, Bunsen Labs has you covered. Though your laptop should run Xubuntu 18.04 LTS just fine as well. As for data recovery, I would say to either image the drive first using something like Clonezilla, or if it's failing, use ddrescue.
I'll try that thanks.
I pulled the HDD and put it into one of those HDD docks connected via USB to my PC. Looks like a fairly fresh install of Windows 7 from early 2014. Locked out of the Desktop.

I'll try running Recuva on the drive to see if I can find any old files from the previous WinXP installation. I doubt I'm going to find much.

I dropped a SSD into the laptop but the BIOS just says "Not Installed" for the HDD Model and Serial.
BIOS is InsydeH20 Rev 3.0. I can't find anything online regarding updating or flashing the BIOS to support a SSD. So I guess I'll have to see if there's anything left on this old drive, wipe it, and try Xubuntu.

Yeah nothing on the HDD. Boo...

SMART tests all say GOOD with 1700+ days powered on lol. Xubuntu take a little over 5 minutes to boot, but seems to be running fine. Thanks for that recommendation.
Nicely done! Strange about the boot times, Xubuntu and Windows 10 both took <2 minutes to boot on my Aspire 5050 IIRC. But at least it's ready for a new life.

You and every other cs major
Most programming nowadays doesn't require math. Most "programmers" are currently code monkeys that use frameworks that were made for them by other people and languages that are monkey tier complicated.
Just stick to object oriented and run away from C.
In 2 words - you won't like it and it requires more time than brain to be an average programmer currently. If you have no background computer knowledge your chances aren't high though.
nigga pick up basic mathematics by serge lang, if you have doubts use r/math (or whatever the subleddit for homework is) or fucking /sci/
that should take you one or two months

In the meantime you should go to freecodecamp and complete their curriculum, it doesn't require much math, nothing beyond HS level iirc, if you have doubts check the book or khanacademy/expii
after you're done with FCC you should apply for entry lvl positions.
>math majors can't even label axes
I'm assuming the x axis is the inverse of the number of job opportunities.

No. Other companies tune their drivers. They don't let another company do the work for them and claim they have """expertise""". Even chinks tune, look at DUNU or Moondrop. The build quality is shit too.
no they are just neutral. Sound signature is good but every thing else is terribly average. Noise isolation is good tho but its true of every BA iem.
