ITT: memes you almost fell for

Pic related. Almost bought this thing on release date but somehow I instinctively felt that Nvidia would comeback strong with a better deal and today I finally ordered my new GTX 1060. Couldn't be happier.

I don't know how about you, but I'd rather wait for next series, especially that there's a very possible rumor that PS4 Neo is going to have underclocked RX480.

But I gotta tell you, HD7900 series aged really well.
670 owner that didn't wait for Tahiti to restock here, I feel eternally buttfucked.
Oh god yes.
I got a 7970 back in 2012, and it's not until now before I sold it, and I sold that thing for $120 fast.

Is PHP as bad as people say?
Should I stay away from it?
19 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
no, that's 0e.
'e' means an exponent, so PHP is basically calculating
>0^462097431906509019562988736854 = 0
>0^830400451993494058024219903391 = 0
>0 == 0
use === for type safe comparison.

Can anyone recommend an interpreted (not compiled) language with a C-like syntax and no OOP (at least forced)? Also, libraries for webdev, ncurses, http requests and crypto.

Although PHP sucks, it has all these features.

Fuck off, pajeet.
the thing you want is Python.

What exactly is supposed to "look this good" in that image, OP? I mean, the wallpaper is kinda nice, but the rest of it is utter boring content with a plain old boring look, nothing special at all.

dude calm your man tit hate down I just said it would be nice for AMD to make a ridiculous core cpus for small devices. But I guess you just want to hate. I have shilled AMD as much as Intel and they both have there reason to be there.
Just buy a fucking Skylake then. Zen is shit, and we know its going to be shit from the leaked specs.
But nigga amd is always going to be cheaper. Like yes intel and nvidia will always have higher quality components but amd will always be that shady guy selling cheap parts. They know who they appeal too.

The best computer cases are the ones you build with your dad in the garage while listening to him rant on and on about how Steve Jobs is making the world stupider and that you shouldn't spend all your money on video game fads and should let him teach you how to work C.

I don't get the need for doing anything more than eating, sleeping and fucking, you just look like a tryhard

>I read that scanf() is unsafe
*scanf is unsafe if you use %s without a length limit. as it can write past the end of a buffer. If you specify a max length or just don't use %s, it's fine.
scanf specifically is shit because it can't handle errors well. If it fails (because the user didn't provide properly formatted input), it leaves the stream in a half-read state and is extremely difficult to recover from that error gracefully. That's why you should use fgets() + sscanf().

1. Keyboard
2. CLI interface
Would be great if they had a keyboard.
Literally the only reason is text input. It is and always will be required for anything "serious". Touchscreen keyboards are infinitely shitty. Speech to text isn't good enough.

Plug a keyboard into a tablet and you have to ask yourself why the fuck you aren't using a laptop.
Remove the fucking trip already pissphone.
No please I need that for my filters.

Long story short, I just switched from an iPhone 6 to a Samsung Galaxy S7 earlier today. It's sitting on my desk right now, importing my texts. I've never used an Android phone and figured /g/ would be the best place to ask. Where the hell do I start? Why do I have three different music players? To root or not to root? Pls send help.

Just do what til normally do. You know. Call, text, browse.

And Android is a bit silly with options. Different browsers, music players etc. That's the only downside. But it's a way better experience anyway.

I myself Went from iPhone6 to s7 edge.
You can get rid of the bloatware without root using package disabler pro
