unity was better than gnome

A couple years ago, if you asked about Python 2 vs Python 3, everybody would tell you to stick with Python 2.7 because that was the most widely supported.

What's the case these days? At work, all our production machines run Python 2.7, so I need to keep writing that no matter what. But is it worth it to spend time learning Python 3? What are the advantages, really?

I always liked that. It was much more strict of a DOM. An effort to put an end to sloppy markup and improve cross-browser compatibility.

Remember in the mid-90s when a lot of sites would say "Select your browser" and they would have separate sites for IE and Netscape? XHTML was largely to thank for the end of that.

A 50% markup over COGS is reasonable, though actual wholesale prices might have come down over the years. It's not bad thought definitely not as competitive pricewise as it was years ago.

Nexus 5. Still have no reason to replace it. Other phones in the same price range don't seem like much of an upgrade, and I don't use my phone often enough to justify the cost of an upgrade.

New to machine learning and want to create a project for myself. The idea is to create a program that able to space invaders, but then the idea came about: Is it possible to make a network that's able play a wider array of games? For example, if this program is successful in beating space invaders can it also learn to play a different game genres?

It’s probably formatted for use with Linux. If you don’t care about the contents of the drive and just want to use it, press win+r, type ‘diskpart’> , click yes, do ‘list disk’ and find the flash drive in the list. Type ‘select disk [number]’, make sure you have the right one, then type ‘clean’. You should then be able to format it using disk management.

>A large portion of the records also included the user's phone number and the name of their cell phone provider, and in some cases their IP address and name of their internet provider if connected to Wi-Fi. Many records contain specific details of a user's public Google profile, including email addresses, dates of birth, genders, and profile photos.
>We also found several tables of contact data uploaded from a user's phone. One table listed 10.7 million email addresses, while another contained 374.6 million phone numbers. It's not clear for what reason the app uploaded email addresses and phone numbers of contacts on users' phones. Several tables contained lists of each app installed on a user's device, such as banking apps and dating apps.

I'm opening up a new one because the current (now old) one is about to die.

What should I do about my current monitor situation? Should I buy an old HP LP2475W monitor to match my second monitor? An anon said to buy a used 30" 2560x1600 monitor off eBay, but they are a bit pricey and not a lot of them are being sold at a good price.

What's the deal with TR4 motherboards, /g/?

Every single one of them is RGB LED gaymer bullshit right now, I mean look at this Asrock - this is apparently considered the *least* tacky board out right now and it's atrocious. I want to put a TR in a new homeserver build, and there's no way I'm doing it with one of these. Is no one making server-oriented boards for Threadripper? Will someone eventually?

I don't care if no one ever sees it, I don't want to buy this bullshit. I'm not installing Windows to disable LEDs from being on all the time. No one's going to make a server type board for this socket? With server oriented components e.g. a dedicated IPMI port? Am I supposed to buy Epyc for these features?
>>
>>63784833
Maybe if Asrock Rack shows up with a board. But so far, I've only ever seen them make boards for intel platforms. I guess board makers sees the juvenile gamer market as more worthwhile.
