I'm testing out having my own .sty file so I can just load in most of the packages, commands, styles, etc, I usually use in my TeX files.

Where the hell do I put my .sty file though?

I tried to put it in /usr/share/texmf directory and then running texhash, but it didn't work. Reading through a TeX stackexchange only left me more confused, and it appears I'm not supposed to even be able to do this for a system wide texlive install.

Is the SSD having a short longevity thing a meme? I've already done all kinds of things to prevent writing too much on it like disabling page file and all kinds of shit, some people say only older models had a problem with dying too quickly.

>>68813394
I've had mine since 2015 with OS partition on it, pagefile enabled and always out of space but I didn't have any problems so far, it may be it was an issue more prevalent in the first models, though technically SSDs are still much more delicate than HDD. If you aren't sure and really care for your files, either make backups or buy a mid-high range 7200 RPM HDD from a brand that was tested thoroughly, it still costs 3 times less than SSD anyway.

Actually copy is better, because move can sometimes go wrong on windows (damaged or deleted files). First, generate a list of all directories on the source drive then make a copy of that list and replace the drive letter with the letter of the destination drive (if the new dirs are in root just changing the letter should be enough). Then, add \*.mp3 at the end of each line in the first list (the source) like this:

copy C:\a\*.mp3
copy C:\b\*.mp3
copy C:\c\*.mp3
...


It can be done in notepad with find and replace function, also other programs can do this. Then, once all the lines end like that, merge the other list (destination) like this:

copy C:\a\*.mp3 K:\a
copy C:\b\*.mp3 K:\b
copy C:\c\*.mp3 K:\c
...


This can be a bit more complicated to do, it can be done probably in batch or with perl but if it's a 1-time action then I'd just use textmechanic.com's merge function: https://textmechanic.com/text-tools/basic-text-tools/merge-text-line-line/ which can merge lists using client-side javascript.

ffmpeg.exe once you get used to using batch files it's the best. Otherwise if you want a gui there is megui which is probably the best gui for audio conversion ever made, it has a package manager that lets you choose whatever codec you need.

There's a really solid case to be made for no antivirus or built in on win8/10. AVs do very limited good, break a lot of shit, and can even introduce additional attack vectors to your system. If you are determined to use one, I would go with bitdefender, which has zero popups and uses minimal resources, but can conflict with some shit.

Brave is great on mobile, but kind of ass on desktop. Just use FF with ublock origin.

1. You almost definitely don't need hardware acceleration for 2D graphics, so if you wanted to make a 2D game in assembly for Windows, you can just write a custom CPU renderer
2. There's no reason you can't use DirectX/OpenGL/Vulcan APIs from assembly, it's just a pain in the ass.
3. Everything in your PC is addressable, and C/assembly's direct memory access means you can read or write anything to anywhere assuming your process has permission to do so (not an issue on hyper threaded Intel CPUs), so you're only limited by what you know about the GPU. With open source drivers for AMD and Nvidia on Linux, there's probably a fair bit of documentation on how the cards work, and you'd probably sooner hit the limit of doing accelerated graphics in assembly without graphics APIs (if you go that route) without blowing your head off than you would be unable to do something for a lack of documentation.

Like others said, it depends on the license. Some would let you, others wouldn't. There's also whether you can make it commercial or not, with again some allowing it and others not. GPLv2 forbids conversion to a proprietary license; you always have to make the source available if you distribute it, but doesn't care about commercialization; you can sell GPL software, as long as it's sold under the GPL license with available source.

That largely relates to want kinds of jobs you might be looking for in the future, although having a general purpose degree is better than nothing.

Are IT architect certifications worth getting? Or is the field just one big enterprise bloatware peddling scam?

I fucked up an interview with one as a dev once for saying I liked that they switched from SVN to Git, while the interviewing architect apparently prefered SVN.
>>
>>68818043
>Am I overthinking it?
Maybe. I went back to college at 25, after a failed first attempt and six years of working. I did skip the community college step, since one of my state's land grant colleges was in easy commuting distance. I came out with a STEM degree that has paid off fairly well over the years.
As an older student, you have a few advantages to offset the greater plasticity of younger minds: professors will see you as closer to a peer than not; wasting time on
wine, women, and song should be less tempting; and extra years of life experience help in dealing with fellow students.
To be honest, that was thirty years ago, and these are different times. Still, as long as you avoid going into debt for a degree that has little market value, you should come out ahead.
As >>68818258 says, community college can be a good way to inexpensively knock off 100 and 200 level classes before moving on to a four year school.

so I have a broken beyond repair Television an LG32lb570v And plan somewhere in the future to read up on internal mechanics & how to use/implement individual parts for any random whatever it can be used for.

Is there any interesting stuff i can take out of it before i get rid of it ??

Recently changed browser settings so my 4chanX has to use the default captcha. Default captcha is complete garbage and requires me to input 10-20 different patterns with ~2-5 second delay each pattern. I've turned on the "Force Noscript Captcha" but that fails. I remember having to add in some edits to ublock or something long before, anyone kow how to fix this?

I'll probably do just that since I'm not really sure about the job I want to get in the future.

You can delete your user folder, but really you can't purge all of your user info from windows. They're irreparably intertwined. That's why it's always recommended to secure erase the disk when selling it. If for some reason they care about windows being on it (they don't), you can install a fresh copy on that other computer then sysprep it. But so could they, and they probably do 50 times a day.

Dude, they give zero fucks. They have to replace busted drives all the time, they probably have stacks up to the ceiling of preinstalled disks. If anything it's probably easier for them cause they don't have to check if anything is screwy software side.

You probably have some sort of power saving mode enabled. When it turns on something is calling the drive or the cache/buffer is being flushed to the disk
Look into how to change your drive's power saving functionality on whatever OS you're running
Some drives spin down and spin back up which can cause them to have a shorter lifespan. As always, check the SMART data

>move things, it download again
No shit, thats as expected, you cannot blame the program for you inability to use its basic features. If you download something and then move it, its going to download it again. This will never change and isnt a fault of the program, but your inability to understand basic file management

Original replyer here. If you're still at it, you can use freefilesync to copy over large sets of files pretty easily. Also if you want to copy the whole drive, and try to get your programs and settings to come along, use macrium reflect. It makes a single large file called a system image, and you can use a restore disk to load that image onto the drive when you get it back. Although that does mean that any corruption to the OS's files potentially comes along. Also if there's a chance you would be restoring it to a different computer and it's not windows 10, you would want to run sysprep first, which isn't that hard.

if you want to boot from it it's not going to work as it is probably missing the boot flags and partition.
use a cloning tool and a livecd like clonezilla.

if you just want your files to be safe you can use robocopy/rsync, no need to copy the OS.

Try to use cloning somftware or something that only sync changed/removed files. First time will be slow but after that it would be faster.

Well, I didn't expect to, but now you mention it, would something like macrium help there? How would I access my files if I did a macrium backup?
Also, I cut and pasted the files, so they're not even on the original drive anymore (some are because it's a problematic process), is that a problem and how would I get round it? Cut and and paste everything back on?

So what I would do is put everything on the drive that you would need to boot, and remove all the side shit so that your image is as light as possible. Macrium doesn't offer the ability to skip certain folders in their free version. You could also do differential backups where the file changes are recorded, and you could mount the image to view files, but if you don't mind separating it out that works too.

But really the only reason to image the drive at all is to preserve your programs, which are a lot easier to start over with than you would think. Clean installs do a lot of good for performance in windows, so if it comes down to it I would just start from scratch.

How would I know what's needed to boot and what isn't? Further, would I still be able to do this considering I already moved a bunch of stuff off the drive?
Also, imaging the drive seems like an unnecessary step the way you describe it, but I just thought maybe I could use the image to put Windows on a different machine? Or to have my same setup of Windows on a different machine
Or even if I lost Windows on my current machine or something because I did something retarded

Thanks for the help anyway guys, really appreciate it

Pretty sure you could pick and choose apps whose content would be hidden on the lock screen on Android before. Now it seems you can only choose to hide everything or nothing.

Am I wrong? Is there a way to get this useful functionality back?

But i'd suggest an ssd over a mechanical hdd.
Slow HDD's are good for video files and images and small stuff that isn't affected by speed.
Games need fuckhuge textures streamed instantly these days.

>How would I know what's needed to boot and what isn't?
Well, since moving files doesn't affect partitions, its mainly shit in your root C:

Progam files,Windows, Driver folders etc. You might still be able to boot if you've cut out some of the user folder shit, but it depends. If the files are part of something that runs when you start your computer, thats a problem.

You could move the windows install to a different machine, but again the only real reason to do that is to save you reinstalling your programs, which is actually pretty easy and a great way to eliminate little unsolved problems that have built up on your computer.

The current OP thought he would be funny by removing it, but here's a link that gives you everything you need to reinstall windows from scratch

Supposedly the 1-2 tb ones are supposed to get cheaper soon, but if you're booting from an HDD now I wouldn't wait. They're already hella cheaper than they used to be, and they go on sale almost constantly.

what processor are you using and how hot is your ambient temp

if you're really that concerned, crank the fan speed up. The pump speed is often wrong, fan headers (even ones labeled AIO) aren't pwm'd the same way fans are.

Yes, provided the issue if the GPU and not your monitor.

>>68819728
for any online game shingled games will perform similarly to normal similarly classed hdd's, but writes are where they lag behind, so games that need to save large files often or in weird places will seriously falter. A 1tb ssd is like 150 bucks now dude, get one of those.

>>68825038
>I raughed
you do realize a shingled hdd is a real thing, where adjacent tracks partially overlap (like shingles) for improved capacity, at the cost of not being fully random-writable?
that was not a mistake

I think I've found a bug in Oracle SQL developer. For some reason I get the error message "Right parenthesis is missing" whenever I put NOT NULL before date and it only happens on this particular table, it works perfectly well to do the same elsewhere. Looking at the code there don't appear to be any parenthesis missing so what is causing this error and why does it only happen when NOT NULL is put before date?

CREATE TABLE REVIEW(
AcademicID NOT NULL REFERENCES ACADEMIC (AcademicID) ON DELETE CASCADE,
ArticleID NOT NULL REFERENCES ARTICLE (ArticleID) ON DELETE CASCADE,
CONSTRAINT Review_pk PRIMARY KEY (AcademicID, ArticleID),
ReviewDate NOT NULL date

);

bitcomet, azure, utorrent

all of them when they finish a torrent let you stop it, it will hold the torrent in the program so I don't re download it, but I am free to move the files wherever I want without the program caring and telling me to redownload shit.

I move anything in qtorrent, upon restart will want to if not automatically (has happened a few times) start downloading the file again. I thought setting everything to be tagged 'downloaded' would fix this, but it turns out a good chunk of the time the program just doesn't remember what the categories are and says fuck it tossing the torrent back in to be re downloaded.

I honestly hate qtorrent, but there is no real alternative.

I've got a slightly (0.2-0.4mm peak across 70mm, both sides) bulged phone battery. So it's not really visible unless you lay it against a flat surface and try to see light.
I've replaced this battery because it's old and doesn't perform well. But I'm wondering how you would appreciate the risk of this battery going boom on me either in storage or in emergency replacement use.

If it's from the IRS here in the USA, it's an editable form, so what ever software you're viewing it with should let you click on a field and type into it.
If it isn't, the free program Xournal runs on most OS and can put a layer of text over the pdf, then export both layers as a new pdf. It's a pain getting everything to line up, but it does work.
Or buy Adobe's tools, then write them off as part of your tax-prep expenses.

I want to remove all non media files (programs, windows, etc.) from a harddrive since I got a new SSD to be the main drive. Is there any easy way to do this? Or should I just wipe it and load a backup onto it?

My first thought would be to just create a partition on your HDD to store media files on and then delete the other partition but I'm no expert.

Pic related is my PC. I bought it on a budget years ago.

It's almost christmas and my parents always feel bad if they can't get me something i want. I can't think of anything else, as when i need something i buy it myself, i'm a grown man. PC upgrading has been on the backburner for well over a year now, so why not?

what's the catch with the tablet-laptop trend (like surface go). they seem really convenient and nice to use. the specs seem pretty ok (don't care about games, mostly need light editing and writing)

my current laptop's pretty bulky and feels (and is becoming) pretty slow. thinking of getting rid of it and buying something light and portable like the surface go.

am i missing anything? is there anything light better under ~$600? thanks /g/
