Oh i see. You're one of those.
Music isn't my thing.
Where else would i buy shoes?
Again, i don't drive a car.
Not sure on this. If you count the mandatory books i had to read to finish high-school, then it might actually be over 300? Let's assume no. But why this arbitrary limit of 300? Why not 500? All of them? What makes 300 special? That you read them?
I don't listen to music. I find it distracting. I like to listen to the noise of the city or the park.
Not sure. But if this is about sports, i play tennis twice a week.

I'm not like the people i called normies. I have few friends (lame i can't judge, but since i have friends, it might not be so bad). What about me calling drop-outs normies triggered you?

You don't. Not always.
You need a small subset of math at best for most jobs in programming.
Math-heavy fields are niche in the grand-scheme of programming. Yes, they are. Deal with it.

The most math I have needed for fucking 17 years is offsets of a value held elsewhere in memory that I give zero shits about other than being an actual number.
SO COMPLECKS

Math is definitely useful though.
It saves having to do loads of silly code when you can compact it in to a fraction of the code with some basic math, be it algebra, trig or binary logic.
To say you absolutely need math for programming is like saying you need to know how all the engine parts of your car works. Not how to repair them, how to source them or anything else, just know how they work.
I just want to change my fucking wheels. Fuck off.

what phone can I get for ~$400 that has the best camera/battery life?

So, my Nexus 6 ate shit the other week.

Pains me, because after the glass cracked I realized that this is the only phone that I have ever owned that I have not had an issue with and wish to continue owning past the upcoming 2-year mark. Love this thing, just wish the screen wasn't AMOLED so it wouldn't inevitably burn in and make me give up on this otherwise indestructible goddamned brick of perfection.

I'm looking at either the Nexus 5X or potentially repairing my 6 with a new backplate, midframe, and screen assembly (thus making it basically like-new).
I do NOT want the 6P because it is borderline impossible to repair.
Also, because I am on Verizon, my choices for an unlocked device are basically limited to the Nexuses and a Moto G4/G5, the Motos being a downgrade from what I currently have.

Here are my fears for both options:

*I order expensive (fucking AMOLED is expensive) replacement parts and they are not as good as OEM parts (despite every site claiming they sell OEM), so my 6 is worse than before and the screen either fails after several months or the quality of the AMOLED panel decays incredibly rapidly.
*The reports of the 5X being fucking slow (despite benchmarking better than the 6) are true and the 5X ends up being a downgrade. I am also afraid of the backpanel (I'd be getting the black one to help avoid this) getting scratched and stained to an unrecognizable state despite putting a case on it.

Whatever happens, I will be running LineageOS if that makes a difference.

Good joke. utorrent seeds are very uncommon, because utorrent users don't seed. When they do seed they seed small files for a few hours a day at best.

On public torrents it really doesn't matter because the swarms have tons of Bitcomets and qbittorrent clients and DL slow as fuck anyway, unless there is a rtorrent fag on it.
>>
>>60581409
Why are you using it? Arent the free alternatives (as qBT) better than an outdated client like that?

>>60586884
Go to a public tracker. Pull 100 torrents with one seed. Post results.

>>60586824
How do they know what these files are if they don't have the key to decrypt them? We don't v& people and torture them into submitting the key here. Government doesn't waste their agents to infiltrate our communities. Unless there's money involved.
>>
>>60586912
If it has 1 seed, I wouldn't even try to DL it because I don't have a week. There are alternatives. Like private trackers or DDLs.
If you miss the activity window on a public torrent, you might as well just give up.

Well of course, it's a very old architecture that was already outdated when released, doesn't mean AMD can't into releasing good products. There's a good reason the vast majority of people that come here or even on other pc building forums end up getting an AMD r5 1600 with an RX 580, and it's because it currently is the best choice there is for normal gamers. None of them come complaining about overheating or bad drivers though, because it doesn't overheat nor does it have bad drivers.

Machine learning is quickly advancing as many countries are heavily investing into artificial ‘deep learning,’ the latest example is a Google AI program beat a Chinese Grand master at the ancient board game Go.

http://www.trunews.com/article/google-ai-defeated-chinese-master-in-ancient-board-game

>(BEIJING) A Google artificial intelligence program defeated a Chinese grand master at the ancient board game Go on Tuesday, a major feather in the cap for the firm's AI ambitions as it looks to woo Beijing to gain re-entry into the country.

>In the first of three planned games in the eastern water town of Wuzhen, the AlphaGo program held off China's world number one Ke Jie in front of Chinese officials and Google parent Alphabet's (GOOGL.O) chief executive Eric Schmidt.

>The victory over the world's top player - which many thought would take decades to achieve - underlines the potential of artificial intelligence to take on humans at complex tasks.

>Wooing Beijing may be less simple. The game streamed live on Google-owned YouTube, while executives from the DeepMind unit that developed the program sent out updates live on Twitter (TWTR.N). Both are blocked by China, as is Google search.

>Google pulled its search engine from China seven years ago after it refused to self-censor internet searches, a requirement of Beijing. Since then it has been inaccessible behind the country's nationwide firewall.
