Waas CRT picture significantly better by the color profile and also on speed, compared to flat monitor technologies which there are several of them?

Have we simply forgotten how great CRT:s were by picture quality? I doubt anyone here has used CRT:s since 2005 or something, they were so bulky and inconvenient by the space they occupy that people simply got rid of them immediately when flat monitors dropped in price to the same level as mid range CRTs were before.
Yes. They were better at a few things, and held a lot of "pros" when considering a single package, but they also weren't created equal meaning there were crap CRTs, and good CRTs.
I still play games and watch anime on crts all the time. i have a small collection. people have bad memories of 60hz flicker, bad geometry, lugging heavy weight, etc. a lot of them had cheap ones too. i don't know too many people who remember them fondly, even though some were wonderful. i highly recommend getting a mid to high end one and playing ballsticng on it. my dell p992 can do 800x600 170hz.

It's not jumping through hoops. And because I like my programs stable and predictable, without run-time errors.
What is a job where I can use either C or Python. I am mostly interested in working with Linux or something and getting better knowledge of algorithms from practice because learning it in school didn't really do it for me. I'm a third year CS major looking for an internship. My grades aren't the greatest but I go to a top school for CS
That's a Haskell problem, where the IO monad is for a hell of a lot more than just input and output. It would be easy enough (if a bit mind numbing) to create your own monad with just getChar and putChar as primitive operations, rewrite some derived operations, and then interpret it in IO at the top level.

what are the limits of air cooling?
Theres probably a specific heat and unit area that when surpassed conventional materials will fail no matter what configuration. No amount of heat pipes, no number of fins, no amount of raw thermal mass will be enough. Eventually you have the die heat itself up faster than it transfers heat into the contact surface area of the heat sink attached to it.

Air cooling would have more headroom at the extreme high end if we had a material with higher thermal conductivity than copper and aluminum.
limitless, just blow air faster to remove more heat
there is none, ultimately all your fancy water cooling and sub zero rigs are air cooled

>he thinks he's original and clever

What is the purpose of a global menu? I always hear how they give you more screen real estate, but that's not true. It takes up no more space than a window-bound menu, and if an app has no menu then it becomes literal wasted space. Seems really unpractical to me.

ITT: GNOME devs try to temper expectations ahead of the removal of global menus
Yea Gnome 3 was designed with touch screens as a priority. Even with 2 in 1 laptops, not many people really use the touch screen.

gnome could actually be good with only a sidebar dock and hamburger menus for the apps, no need for the lame top panel
You can't make sense of gnome 3.
It prevents menubar redundancy when having two windows of the same program open and on macOS, it gives applications a space to run in when no windows open without crowding the system tray with a needless icon.

Also, it's super easy to mouse for. I don't have to think about its location at all, even when windows aren't maximized… just fling my cursor at the approximate horizontal menu location and it'll be there, don't even have to look. Instead I can keep reading or move my eyes to the next target while my cursor is en route. Additionally, the fixed locations of the open menu themselves takes advantage of our strong spatial memory capabilities.

I don't know about GNOME, but macOS has had an option to auto-hide the menubar for a couple releases now, so "it takes more space" really doesn't work as an argument.

Good book. My professor was much better though.

I feel like a massive faggot. The surface book 2 seems to be the only computer that suits all my needs (except the shitty CPU), but I feel ashamed. It's basically a slightly better Mac in terms of design. I feel like a shill for wanting it. It's so fucking expensive. Are there any other alternatives that have the tablet ability, a GTX 1060 and pen input? I feel like such a faggot

Why has a decent competitor not been made yet? It's insane to me how PayPal can fuck with people's livelihoods.

>All of their support is routed to New Delhi
>They can randomly freeze your account and hold your funds for 180 days for no reason at all
>Cases and disputes are decided by poorly paid employees that don't even look into the case
>Support is like talking to a robot and no one even looks into your emails or why you called them

How has this company grown to be a billion dollar company and gotten away with what they do? I myself had my account frozen in 2014 out of nowhere. No reason was given and support wouldn't even talk to me. They just kept saying the "case was looked into". It wasn't until I Google'd executive numbers that I finally got someone who would look into the account. Turns out, employees do manual reviews of accounts every so often and mine was accidentally flagged for closure.

If I had never found that executive number, my account would've been gone. I wonder how many people that day went through the same thing but never reached out to an executive and lost their money.

It's fucking insane to me that a company can operate like this without repercussions and that a billion dollar company hires Indians. Indians are the most useless people on the planet.
