Windows pros and cons?

-you can see outside if you have no curtains
-others can see inside your home if you have curtains
-if a window is too small, it can't be used as a door

that's what i could think of mostly atm
>-others can see inside your home if you have curtains
if you have no curtains

also if windows get dirty and sun shines on them they look disgusting
* Hardware Support due to hardware companies writing drivers for windows 1st/exclusively
* DirectX, so huge amount of compatible games
* All in all very easy to understand for newbs
> cons
* No software manager, software will never be completely removed once installed, there will ALWAYS be leftovers
* VC Redistributables are required for most programs in different versions today, so your systems gets bloated with that shit
* not customizable (changing wallpaper doesn't count)
* shitty registry system that can slow down your system once it gets too bloated
* windows file management causes fragmentation of hard drive and will slow down your system or waste space
The only good thing about windows are the games. Then again, that's the only thing that matters. So yeah, windows it is.

Are you torrenting the way you're supposed to, /g/?

Have you noticed that you never want to use public trackers ever again after using private ones?

Communist public plebs, stay out of this thread. You wouldn't last a single day on a private tracker anyway.

Option 1: Be a big fat freetard crybaby and attempt Option 3 of >>47231649

This will most likely end with you either proceeding to Option 2, or being fired.

Option 2: You sack the fuck up like a grown up, and install it the stuff they want you to install, so you can play nicely with the other programmers you'll be working with.

To soften the blow of Option 2, it may be worth your while to either setup another environment, or maybe even a whole nother machine, that has all the tools you need for work.

How do I learn latex really quickly
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
just force yourself to write everything in LaTeX for a week. Then you either go back to a reasonable way for writing documents, or you become a LaTeX pro
/sci/ here, grab the not so short introduction to linux. It seems long but most of the material is just examples of what rendered text looks like and several of the chapters deal with special stuff you don't actually need to cover (like making your own latex packages).

You should know ahead of time though that while latex is great for typesetting text/math it's not so great at doing anything with diagrams (unless you're okay with just embedding images). For that lots of people use either specific latex packages (just google for these as you need them, eg. parse trees) or they use Tikz. Tikz is this whole other thing that lets you use latex to code images, the manual for Tikz is huge and it takes a long time to learn. For now I would recommend you avoid any Tikz stuff and if you are in a situation where you need to typeset something with diagrams then either find a package or don't use Latex.

dont forget you can do everying you want in Microsoft Equation editor, and import it into word. works for masters degrees.
I'd recommend using vim's latex-suite, which comes with a tutorial as well. It's really intuitive if you ask me, provided you have nothing against vim in general of course.

I'd also suggest you looking over templates as well. I actually used this one


for my bachelor thesis. Though the document is probably unneccessarily complex if you just want to write something small, it does explain stuff like making a bibliography, a table of contents, including graphics etc.

In short:

pstricks can help with figures as well. actually some programms (inkscape, qtiplot) offer the possibility to save images in a LaTeX-with-certain-package-formats

4/10. it's nice to have a HBM card, but I'll stick with my 290X for a next couple of years.
Paid 700e for my 295x2 I'm sticking.
GTX 980Ti/GTX 990 excited
because i use a laptop
This will be nice. They havent done a 2gpu1pcb shit since 690 and seem to do it a lot less then AMD lately in general, though the 7990 did take forever.

I would set my eyes on a 980 ti instead of the 980 if it comes along by the time Im saved up

Supporting something for 5 years is a hell lot better than 6 months.

Oh, did I say "6 months"? Pardon me, obviously I meant six weeks. Update immediately, or no support at all. What? Your server can't be rebooted at least once a day? Well then, it's not Not Our Problem (TM), gramps.

I'm trying to come up with a SFF form factor that isn't overpriced out the ass.
It seems that the ncase m1 had the layout spot on, with minor variations possible.
How do you expect it to be cheaper?

Honestly NCASE should try to make some deals with retailers or Lian Li so they can make a larger production run instead of doing these small batches. I get they wanted to make modifications but the changes were so miner it wasn't really worth it.
>How do you expect it to be cheaper?
By not using Lian li. Those fuckers are horribly expensive even for their own cases.
I wonder if Jonsbo would do something like this.

I kind of want a new case but in the same token, I don't want GPU sag. hmmm. All "meme" nonsense aside, how is theCorsair air 540? I'm interested merely because there is so much room behind the motherboard, I can mount a full size 120mm fan to blow on the socket. 4.8 ghz clocks make the socket awfully toasty and my current HAF xb case really has like no room for one.
Is that a Jonsbo W2BK?

Type 'CLOADM' and press play on the tape (be sure it is rewound all the way first). If you get an error, try 'CLOAD' instead (once again, making sure to rewind the tape first).

What you should see is a blinking letter at the upper left of the screen (think it is the letter 'F') followed by name of the program being loaded. When it is done loading, the cursor will return. Then type EXEC to start. If you used CLOAD instead of CLOADM, type RUN to start.

Tape drives are slow so it might take a couple of minutes to load.
I have a Sega SC3000. Mid 80s from memory. So no, not older than your TRS80.
The computers in my house are relatively modern. I've got an Amiga 500 at my parents house though.
