"Fossils aren't good watches" edition

Most watches in this thread are mechanicals that have second's hand moving at least 3 times in a second. There are watches that beat 10 times per second and seiko's spring drive offer absolutely smooth hand sweep.

Seiko spring drive watches are perfectly smooth. So if you want perfectly smooth then this is your only true option.

There are other watches that can give a similar effect, like the tuning fork bulovas which appear smooth due to little pulses of energy from the tuning fork 360 times per second. There's also a bulova quartz that ticks 16 times per second.

Most modern mechanical watches will advance the second hand 6 to 10 times per second.
Mechanicals generally tick six to ten times a second, more if you're willing to spend.
Some quartz watches also have high tick rates, but they eat batteries like candy.

Seiko's Spring Drive movement is genuinely smooth with no ticking, but they only use it in their ugly Ananta line and their expensive Grand Seiko line.

Should i swap (sell) my Sapphire R9 290 TriX with an Asus R9 290 DC2?

I want to get the Asus because the warranty will be end at March 2017 where my Sapphire card warranty will be ended at March 2016. By this, i will get 1 year extra warranty with 0 cost.
I thought the ASUS 290/290X really shity coolers, or have they fixed the problem where one of the heatpipes didn't even touch?
Nope. They just bolted their Nvidia cooler on there and called it a day. It was never changed, and the card is hot and loud as a result. You'd be nuts to swap a Sapphire card for one.
i have the r9 290 DCUII and while yes, one of the 5 heatpipes only makes half contact with the GPU die, i still only hit 75-80 deg. under full load
Not unless you intend to replace the stock cooler.

DC2 is a fine cooler, but the design doesn't line up for AMD cards so the largest of the heatpipes doesn't even touch the GPU die.

No, I don't even upload video game related things because I don't want video game accounts linked to my IRL identity.

EMPs won't effect most small electronics. Cars will probably be OK, but long cables will be fucked along with whatever is attached to either end of those cables. Entirely possible that most LANs will survive EMP blasts entirely unaffected

Why do phone manufacturers obsess with these large screen sizes?

I recently got a shitty low end 3.5'' HVGA android for $60 to use as a backup device just to find that I prefer it on a day to day basis to my expensive 5'' device. It does most of the stuff I do on my larger phone flawlessly with the enourmous upside of being one-hand friendly. Even movies are quite OK, you hold it a couple of inches closer and the virtual screen size becoms the same. Didn't realise just how ergonomically awkward everything has become since I got this phone.

My dream device would be a midrange android phone max 3.5''-4'', max 62 mm width, max 115 grams weight, dual or quadcore, WVGA res would suffice, water and dust proof.

Am I alone in this world?

(Pic somewhat related, never owned an iPhone but I think the 5s is hits the upper limit for comfy one-hand usability.)

Nigga you stupid
I've got a large flagship device, read the first fucking post.
Some manufacturers do provide this, Samsung is one of them.
The phones aren't as high speced as their flagship models (because you can't fit as much in etc) but they are still quite good.

Apple will release a smaller phone in their 7th generation because they are retarded, giving three size options.
my dream phone/specs

1) mid range pricing
2) max 4.7 " screen (IPS/Amoled)
3) gorilla screen protection alike
4) removable SD
5) Optional Dual SIM Variant
6) snappy UI, NOT lagdroid
7) Stable and fast locking GPS.

Is this too fucking much to ask in 2015?
though all samsung's I can find that are not shitty specced are 4.3 and above, and that's on the large side imo.
>My dream device would be a midrange android phone max 3.5''-4'', max 62 mm width, max 115 grams weight
like your dick

seriously, you can't even handle a 5 inch phone? lel fucking manlet. i man-handle my 6.4" sony xperia z ultra with ease. why are you even complaining, there are plenty of mini phones on the market for kids like you, no one is forcing you to buy a big boy phone.

I have some questions for you:

1.) How many years have you been using it?

2.) Which distribution do you use?

3.) Do you play any games, if so which ones?

4.) What software do you use?

>1.) How many years have you been using it?
About 9 years, our high-school couldn't have Windows/Macs due to licensing issues - so we just used debian everywhere instead.

>2.) Which distribution do you use?
Linux Mint Debian Edition - I've done my fair share of distro hopping; mainly around the debian and debian-based region. I was looking for a distro system that would offer good support for Wacom tablets for digital art as well as friendly system that I was used to using to program.

>3.) Do you play any games, if so which ones?
Call this blasphemy, but I keep a boot of Windows 8.1 on this laptop for my collection of steam games due to the lack of Linux support for some older titles - I'm fine deleting the OS if all titles have support. (So far I would say it's around 60 percent).

For everything else, there's WINE and PlayOnLinux.

I also keep a variety of Emulators on both systems:

-DeSuME (Nintendo DS Emulator)
-Dolphin (Gamecube/ Wii Emulator - I even got the Wiimotes to work!)

You weren't meant to program.

Just because you're good at something doesn't mean you should do it for the rest of your life.
This is the continuation of that "CS degree is for idiots" trolling, i guess?

Just apply differentation/integration rules until done. I'm pretty sure it is O(n) for both.
depends on what you're deriving/integrating. if it's a polynomial it's really simple

i'm pretty sure the field gravitates towards one point, so it'll be shaped kinda like a valley. you can skip ahead but you will still need to compare two adjacent points to determine the slope. like for a binary search you could check 50 and 51, and if 51 is lower than 50 you check 75 and 76, and if 76 is higher than 75 you check 62 and 63 and so on

I'm trying to search a binary heap for a certain node. I'm having trouble finding a way to search the heap in better than O(n).

My first guess was to start at the bottom and break when the next item's score was lower than the one I'm searching for (the heuristic never underestimates the score of the node). But pic related (assuming red line is score of item) this turns out to be much worse than O(N).

How would /g/ perform this search?

Inb4 some autist on /g/ shills over the Zune because the iPod is from Apple.
I had a broken ipod classic which made scratchy noises, replaced audio cable and nothing changed, figured the HDD was dead but by that time I had broken the (expensive) flimsy HDD cable. Be careful anon.
You can buy new headphone jacks from ebay for like 10 bucks. They're a pain in the ass to install though, I've done it a few times.
