well, id be surprised if it translates to more than 1.5 hrs extra in practice.
So what you change and what you keep in your macs?

thinking about getting a mbp with retina for programming. how hard is it to install a linux distro, or can i just install linux programs while still on osx?
I have an older 15" non-retina macbook pro and el capitan beta still runs nicely, so any retina mbp should work well
>linux programs
you'll have to be more specific.

There's not much to know about pulling them together.. install linux, apache (or nginx in your case), mysql and php.

Connect to a mysql database from php and then use it to generate html

That's all there is to it at the most basic level...
thanks guys. I've set up the LA(M)P already, only thing missing is the M. I had a very simple php page already, and I'll looking into php more so I can dive into it

I started my webdev studies with php (yii2) but I also want to use a better language and better framework (even stack).

Do you guys think I should try Rails or MEAN? I wanna do simple stuff with it in order to learn. I also want to try REST with it, so which one do you recommend and why?

If you're thinking in some different framework or stack, I'm listening (for the record, I don't really like django docs, so that's why I'm reluctant with it).
Stay with PHP, it's the best thing out there at the moment.

Mechanical Keyboard Thread
Not Kailh Switches Edition

Can we please not have a /mkg/ dedicated to Kaihl Switches please?

Yes, Cherry Mx switches are superior to Kaihl. I concede that point. I agree with the assertion that Kailh switches suck.
They suck. They are a moderate switch that is moderately priced and there are many keyboards out there that are really good deals because they have Kailh switches in them.

I would not like to see a thread dedicated to those boards please.

Get a board like a lolita, KUL, filco and get whatever keycaps you want.

I rather have colorful key caps than lighted pieces of shit.
Ducky Shine 5 is RGB and doesn't have shitbranding

Seconding the Ducky Shine. I have a slightly older one and it replaced a Razr Blackwidow Ultimate "mechanical" keyboard.

I'll never look back.

I also have a nice Corsair at work that uses Cherry Blues as well. It's glorious.
I want spherical keycaps, but I also want PBT, and legends. And I want the legends to be either dye-sub or doubleshot. And I want you to know about this, because my suffering is great.

Let's say you have a piece of electronics with drop and spill coverage. You step on your phone quite deliberately, then call up and tell the insurer that your phone got fucked up. How could they prove that it wasn't an accident?

How can they prove it though?
If they have any doubts, they'll just tell you you broke the terms of your insurance, and they wont cover it.
jesus christ you must be retarded

if you have "drop and spill coverage"

They check the colour of your skin
>" we would like to see the phone so we can see if your lying
> " I dropped it in a river and it spilled in

problem solved.

> does not cover ... exposure to liquid
what the fuck does spillage refer to then?
actually i'm not sure I want to know...

I'm building a Beowulf cluster of raspberry pi's, and looking for some tips/insight/advice/resources to help me learn mpi, clusters, and any other information you think would be helpful. Also, I am deciding if I want to keep raspbian on them, or install arch on 10+ Raspberry pi's.

B-but why anon?
I see. Have some application ideas in place yet?
Thanks, but I've already been there. Might do this but will probly switch it to arch.
I was originally thinking of generating fractals with it, b/c I couldn't think of anything better. But not sure how well it would do. Any suggestions?
Like I said you should also consider making a base image that is modified from the original alarm/raspbian image. It would be easier to do onceon your assumingly 2GHz+/4GB RAM machine than to do 10+ times on a rpi2
Yes I'll be doing this. BTW they are 1st gen rpi's. Do you think compiling a custom kernel would be useful?

Thanks anon.

They're overpriced collectible plastic toys. Apparently though they're worth double what I paid for them already, it's only been 2 years.

Chairs are definitely comfy, the Eames doesn't inspire confidence though, which is good, encourages me to keep losing weight so I can sit on it without destroying it haha. I'm 180 pounds, which is borderline max weight since the design is old.

>Linux was "cumbersome to use" and "of very limited use"

>Despite the high-end devices that were purchased for city staff members, the common complaint has been the inability to use the devices for simple tasks such as word processing and making video calls. “There are no programs for text editing, Skype, Office etc., installed and that prevents normal use,” the two senior members argue. Although the complaint says there isn’t a program for text editing, each of their machines comes pre-installed with LibreOffice.

>One of the big complaints from using Limux and OpenOffice/LibreOffice is the incompatibilities with Microsoft Office. As we are all well aware of, sometimes creating documents, spreadsheets, and other files on OpenOffice will appear differently on Microsoft Office, and vice versa. This makes it hard to communicate with other organizations who are most likely using Microsoft Office.

>Many city members are using their own devices to overcome these issues. “These devices have already cost a lot of money to acquire. Many town councillors are using their own private notebooks because of the problems,” the senior city members claim. Apparently, because of this issue, a large number of the purchased devices are “going unused” — which means the city wasted money purchasing them in the first place.

>hardware mods mean shit

The only "mod" was that the voltage limiter was bypassed, silly. Otherwise, it's untouched.
if they want developers to use it efficiently, they're gonna have to allow more direct code than CUDA to make use of the compute cores. otherwise, enjoy 3-5 frames of input lag at 144fps
>market share
The chart everyone is ranting about was >>>volume sales<<< for Q2'15.

AMD's market share is sitting at 30-35% as it has for a while now.
>if they want developers to use it efficiently, they're gonna have to allow more direct code than CUDA

You, I and no one but Nvidia knows that not even QUADRO owners have full access to GPGPU and as we have seen with QUADRO cards they are incredibly good when it comes to computing even better than AMD equivalents.
which means they're gonna have to open the graphics path in non-workstation cards if they want a shot at good async compute.

if they let the floodgates for that out, all the small time CAD people and cheapo work prototyping houses will move to consumer videocards. that would practically mean shooting themselves in the quadro dick.

dis shit gonna be real gud.
