Why hasn't a single OS/Desktop environment figured out scaling on multiple monitors of different resolutions?

You'd think such a basic task would be easy.
I expected for it to be easy on GNU/Linux. But no. I have lost faith in FOSS

Apple products had always some design flaws to make their devices disgusting or obsolete you can point any devices and it has a major defect. In this case, when closing the lid the top part would damage the bottom part. Most second white boys are broken because of that so please do not try to mimic thinktanks using macbooks because it wont work.

Fellow LabVIEW programmer here. This seems like an obvious application for a formula node, provided you're not too concerned with performance. Using the native blocks runs faster, but can be confusing to read with something like this. If you're going to use them, you should break it down with subVIs.

In a past project where I had to do a ton of parallel data analysis in parallel with data acquisition, I found it more straightforward to use the built-in MATLAB interface so I could use that code and then pass the results back to LabVIEW.

Also, instead of those comments, I recommend labeling the individual blocks. If you ctrl+U for cleanup, those comments will get placed randomly. Rule of thumb with unattached comments is that that should be relevant to whatever container they are in, not necessarily to what they are close to.

For a simple program like that though, I do like the GUI. And at the end of the day, the code werks.

This perfectly demonstrates Python' superiority.

All those useless fill in symbols when indentation and line breaks convey the meaning perfectly to humans and compilers alike.

You should just get a used Model M in good condition. Shitty build quality in a $90 keyboard is unacceptable.

I don't know why you didn't just return it. If there's one thing Unicomp is good at, it's repairs. I sent them my old SSK for a repair and they stitched it up for me very well, even cleaned the internals too.

Why is is that the vast majority of CS grads are completely retarded, to put it politely?

They can't write code without youtube tutorials, they never know what they're talking about and they regurgitate one of two things which entirely depends on what teachers they had. Either it's "USE SEPPLES, AUTOMATIC PERFORMANCE HNNNNNGH" or "OOP bad mkaaaay".

Is it really piss easy to graduate in computer science or what? I'm a welding basement programmer.

You try training all the specialist jobs involved in building "structures" (all sorts of wood/stoneworking, electricians, painters, solar roof installers, machine operators and many more) plus then also theoretical physicists, chemists, business planners and architects and more rolled up in one degree and see whether you manage to get results that look like they're flawless.

Comp.sci graduates from srs universities are still better at offering this all-in-one package that is often required, but they're not necessarily beating people who specialized in applying that one Python framework for applying that one Python framework - no shit.

I don't even understand why do people use devices like amazon echo and such. At first I thought it was just a joke and no one was buying it, until I learned that people actually buy these things and use them.

/g/ i am suffering from severe information overload. I have so many books, papers, and essays that I have written or have read and taken notes on. But I've yet to find a good way to properly organize it.

I am willing to do anything to organize all this. It is driving me crazy. How do you guys maintain your libraries of books, notes, journals?? Do you digitize it all? Keep a physical plastic box with folders? Anons, please help me - I have information neurosis

If you do digitize it, where do you store it? I tried dropbox, but I ran out of memory before long. Any places with more memory? I would ideally be able to access this across multiple devices (computers)

Any software or books on dealing with this also? Should I use e-macs or something? I've never used that before and would appreciate any tutorial links on how to

imo touchscreens arn't that bad if they're appropriately used and even then they usually allow for secondary input options. And touchscreen phones are just a proven paradigm, it works because its a very space efficient implementation on a very small device

Then you have the whole touchscreen on a military naval vessel types of things where someone really needs to rethink their life
