Should i learn a programming language or two for work/my CV? Would it realistically help me get a job as e.g. a software developer, or at least get a job involving working with software?

If you want to work in IT get ITIL certification. No need to learn programming. And dont go into Software Development.

>buying from nvidia

>buying botnet

Hello boyos. I live in a shitty third world country and soon I'm gonna leave to a less shitty one where I'll continue my GD studies. I'm gonna need a laptop because a lot of the classes require one, it'd be hard to transport a desktop by plane and buying new pieces where I'm going isn't an option as pretty much every tech is expensive as fuck there.

I have this one in mind (Asus K555uq) and it comes with a i7-6500u, 12 GB RAM DDR3L, 1tb HDD and an GeForce 940mx. It costs around 850 USD when converted from COP. Local buy because buying from Amazon or Newegg isn't an option either (shipping is too expensive even by courier)

Is it a good laptop? Is that a fair price? Would it be good for design and 3D?can I play modern games? (I don't care for ultra 1080p, med - high is good for me)

>inb4 "check the wiki"
Already did, couldn't find any of the recommended models here

>inb4 "Google some benchmarks"
The most I find are from the same series but with different specs (8 ram, 930mx, i5 and such)

Alright good to know I will use that next time. I am mainly a programmer so my unix skills are mostly on a need to know basis.
>predefined mount point in fstab
you realize that you can define ownership in fstab, right?

id in terminal will list relevant uid and gid (in my case 1000) that you can add to your fstab mount options, as uid=1000,gid=1000,etc,etc

it may be the case that you'll need to add another user id and change the ownership to that user. If I remember correctly, the raspbian server I set up set the ownership of everything I did to root, which caused some problems for any software that wasn't running as root.

right now you're complaining that a board and OS tailored for makers and computer education has a learning curve. either fuck off or learn to ask for help without being a cunt about it
Don't worry, friend! Your 4chan pals are here to help!

The problem your seeing is caused by your USB drive being formatted as FAT32 aka VFAT.

FAT32 is the lowest common denominator of file systems. It's simple and dumb, with almost no metadata.

The benefit of using FAT32 is that all operating systems can read the files. The downside is that no extended functionality like permissions and ownership is supported, and a secure default is chosen instead.

Sadly, this secure default was more restricted than you wanted! Your two choices are:

1. Use a more advanced file system, like ext4. This will allow proper access control, but no cross-platform mounting.

2. Use a less restricted default. You can do this with the mount command, specifically
-o uid=youruser,gid=yourgroup,umask=yourmask

Couldn't this be automatic if they just read the launchers in /usr/share/applications?

That sucks
My fear is that by the time we see how good it is the price will jump by 200$ (like they said the plan to).
Seriously considering pre purchasing it.
Thanks for the info anon
I don't like pre-buying so if that happens then I'll just get a GPD WIN after the GPD pocket is ship. But that's if I can't build me a zero terminal.
I assume we'll see the spike in prices around June, which is when they ship the products.
I hope they'll release a few for reviewers and such so we'll have more info before that.
Another interesting point to consider is that if they intend to raise the price by 50% when they launch, it could mean they anticipate the demand will meet this price.
But I'm speculating here
Is the C.H.I.P faster than the Zero?

Make sure the partition it's on is mounted. Try lsblk, and if you have an unmounted <1GB partition, mount it (
sudo mount /dev/sdxy /some/empty/directory
) and see if it's there.

You can also try
sudo updatedb && locate syslinux.cfg
to search for it.

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
to reload your config (assuming that's where your config is.

>I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.

>stretched by parents

I see what he did there..
>the disproportionately powerful group of Christian voters

Except that's not fucking true at all.
It's just the state pushing to reduce teen pregnancy costs and eventual welfare and all that.
If it were due to Christians, the most religious areas of the country would have the higher age of consent laws, and it's for the most part the exact opposite.
>And the coercion made by parents is different,
Mentally abusing your child is allowed, plenty of people get fucked up because their parents were dicks, for example extremely religious parents who's main parenting tactic is to scare the kids into doing what they think is appropriate behaviour.

>pedophilia in itself might not be bad, but when there is a relation, in bad contexts for the children, in a bad spirit kinda, putting the child in situations he might not need to be in at this age.
The point of Stallman is that he is sceptical of the claim about the harm to the child. Rape is of course bad, and having sexual intercourse with a toddler will of course do some serious physical damage. I just think modern pedophilia laws are the result of an irrational fear and needs revisiting.

It's not like having consensual sex with a 13 year old was significantly less severe in 1970 than it is today, but the penalty today is anywhere from several years to several decades in prison whereas back then it was essentially a slap on the wrist and a couple of months in prison or community service.
>It's just the state pushing to reduce teen pregnancy costs and eventual welfare and all that.
Trying to prevent teen pregnancy through law and threats of severe jailtime is a result of Christian voters.

>If it were due to Christians, the most religious areas of the country would have the higher age of consent laws, and it's for the most part the exact opposite.
Oh wow, Christians are hypocrites and bigots, who could have known?!

Mormons obviously think that marrying at age 13 is okay, but non-marital sex is bad and damaging.

Obviously. Unless you have a little farm in your courtyard you need to buy food. It's impossible to be happy when you are starving.

So buying shit will make you happy so to speak.

Educate me please.

I'm getting 16 GB of RAM. Two 8 GB sticks. The sticks I have chose come in two forms for same price.

1. Single-Rank. 1Rx8. Based on eight 1G chips per module.

2. Dual-Rank. 2Rx8. Based on sixteen 512M chips per module.

Which is best?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
The ranks cannot be accessed simultaneously as they share the same data path.

so single rank?

This is /g/
buy in pairs of 2 for dual channel.

Rank. Not channel.
Do you even realize how stupid you are? Or is your stupidity too great for you to be able to tell? Either way, I'm sorry for your condition.

Single rank is faster and easier to access, but the difference isn't enough to justify spending notably more.
