Yeah, though it isn't a problem that could be fixed just by looking at the keyboard. And the biggest problems are usually like, if the ctrl key is places differently or something.

If I go from exclusively chiclet to a more traditional one, I may end up simply making more typos. Same if I change the switch type I use in a radical way (god damn the first time I got a Topre keyboard, I made a shitload of typos since it was so light)

99% of people using a computer don't know shit about computer hardware, you're asking too much for regular code-monkey. Maybe if they were an embedded guy or super senior architect, it would make sense.

if knowing computer hardware was requirement for getting a job with computers, they should start by firing the worst offenders of it first, ie human resources and other paper-pushing retards.

computer programmers already have some dumb high standards for entry, while the pay is not that great, and you're still under the finger of some MBA asshole manager that probably didn't even pass calculus 2.

Follow up post from before, stuck them in and it worked like a charm! Thanks to everyone who replied.

Also, forgot I had stuck an SSD in that laptop, so that's now in my R400 as well.

So, with those two massive upgrades, I'm also planning to get a new CPU in here, a it's only going to cost £5 for the pleasure and a bit of waiting for it to arrive from China.

It needs a new nipple, and the windows key is missing, but as I'm running xubuntu on it, that's right at the bottom of my list of priorities.

Oh, and a new battery, hopefully a 9 cell, but will settle for a new 6 cell over the used 3cell shit it currently has. But, overall... very happy indeed with my new baby.

>>59592241

I always hear this and maybe it's true, but I'm just a pleb and I'm honestly asking: isn't systemd open source? If they included backdoors into it, aren't they just hoping and praying someone doesn't come along and read the code and discover it?

>>59592488
you really need to back off from this guy. Just because you took your intro to circuitry class in your second year of college does not mean you understand whats going on. look into "computer organization", and follow the path from low, high level programming like C all the way down to machine code. It's interesting stuff, and spoiler: it's all derived from boolean.
>>
>>59592660
You're ignoring the context. This is a thread about George Boole's contribution.
He didn't create Flip-Flops and he didn't create a computational model as powerful as the Turing Machine.
>>
>>59592693
That's rich coming from a guy who once picked up that digital logic is based on Boolean functions, and now mistakenly equates it with Boole's work.
>>
>>59592712
No, and Turing didn't create boolean logic, which drove his creation of the turing machine. And guess what a flip-flop can be used for not in conjuction with boolean logic? Nothing.
The argument, yes, is about his contribution. And that is the ground-level building block of all computing.
>>
>>59592787
>And that is the ground-level building block of all computing.or others to build upon.
Yes he laid a foundation for it, I don't disagree with that.

What are some legitimate reasons to learn Rust when C++ or even Go exists?
>>
Stop creating these threads.
>>
>>59591702

Why eating apples, when oranges or peaches are a thing?

Go is nice for small and fast servers or some simple concurrency.

Rust is still pretty immature, I'm pretty sure it will have a bright future, but for the next two years there won't be any jobs.

C++ is battle proven and the de facto standard in some areas. Even if tomorrow nobody would make new C++ projects, there would still be a gorillion of legacy projects that want to get maintained.


So this is how you should do it:

1. Learn C. Even if you only work yourself through K&R in two months, it's worth it. Everybody knows C, it's so mandatory it's not even funny.

I know C, Python, quite a bit of Golang, Asm, VHDL, quite a bit of C++, polyml,. Clisp, and Java. Rust seems quite intuitive so far, except for some notations. It's either Rust or Haskell now.
>>
>>59592729

That's a different story then..

Haskell and Rust are both worth learning, but for different reasons. They are totally different.

Haskell is one of the most beautiful languages out there, and of course it's functional. A totally different paradigm that will make you think about your code.

Rust is more like a nicer version of C++ without all that magic.

So the choice is more about:
You want to become a better, more well-rounded programmer? --> Haskell
You want to go close to metal and make high performance shit but you don't like C/C++ anymore? --> Rust

well its not my fault intel uses the same naming scheme in marketing different products. I actually think its intels biggest mistake, their naming conventions and pricing when it comes to marketing. Its the only reason amd was able to claim to provide twice the performance to cost ratio as one of the processors in Intels lineup

besides, its a reasonable comparison. Most people find the mobile i7 line of cpu's to be more than adequate, if a desktop fx6300 can outperform them, it must also be more than adequate for the same computing demands
