I'm still a loser that likes doing things in person desu. That way I can ask stupid questions like how to pay for things and all that.
Which can be done with google and shit, but I'm already there and its easier to get the nerds to explain it to me.

that is, when they're not trying to sell me gaming ethernet cables
i cant see how personally, but to each their own i guess.

I just feel like if you are the type of person that wants to black out the top strip to hide it then the strip of screen they left aroudn the back of the hole makes the whole top piece much larger than if they had just done the notch.

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.

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.
Etymotic is a full USA thing. even the drivers are burger.

How dare you Sir?

>Another part of the fault must be laid to the failure of OO itself to live up to expectations. We examined this problem in Chapter 4, observing the tendency of OO methods to lead to thick glue layers and maintenance problems. Today (2003), inspection of open-source archives (in which choice of language reflects developers' judgments rather than corporate mandates) reveals that C++ usage is still heavily concentrated in GUIs, multimedia toolkits and games (the major success areas for OO design), and little used elsewhere.

>It may be that C++'s realization of OO is particularly problem-prone. There is some evidence that C++ programs have higher life-cycle costs than equivalents in C, FORTRAN, or Ada. Whether this is a problem with OO or specifically with C++ or both remains unclear, though there is reason to suspect both are implicated [Hatton98].
Anyone who legitimately likes the C++ standard right now are as deranged as C users. Everyone who uses C++ says the exact same thing. "I wish the language wasn't bloated"
That don't make C garbage for any modern nontrivial piece of software

Really, there isn't any good alternative to C for its use case. Making hardware level abstractions.
There also isn't any good alternative to C++ for its use case. Generating complex software that need performance, fast development time, and require teams of engineers

Anyone who tells you otherwise is a toe jam eating faggot
Some of the articles I posted above referred to using C exactly for complex software that needed performance over C++.
Even worse is being one of those autists that tries to classify what they perceive as fallacies.
Any programming language can be "insecure". Blaming C for being more "insecure" than other languages is bullshit.

Maybe you can capture the mathematical part of the sound perfectly, but you can't capture any of the soul or warmth with a digital approximation.
You mean noise and distortion? You can add that with a DSP if you really want worse quality, brainlet anon.
