Do you take medication to help you concentrate?

I have great health insurance and want to use it to aquire amphetamine salts (Adderall) for a family member who has no insurance and cannot afford it.

For those of you who take this medication or ones similar to it - is it easier to buy it from someone or fake the symptoms and get a prescription? Is it illegal to purchase and possess without an Rx? What kind of ramifications could I face? I'm willing to accept some risk but my loved one really needs this.

switched to qbittorent after the utorrent security leak but i'm fed up with this piece of shit program.

>download album
>add it to foobar, edit the file names/dates so it's all correct
>qbittorrent automatically redownloads the fucking file and overwrites anything that was changed INSTEAD OF pausing the torrent and leaving it in a "files missing" state

>download a movie
>watch it, delete it
>same thing

whoever designed this and didn't at least include an option to prevent it from redownloading files is a fucking retard

so which torrent client doesn't suck?

Might as well give him the complete list.

µTorrent 1.6.1
µTorrent 1.8.5
µTorrent 2.0.4
µTorrent 2.2.1

This is a comprehensive list of torrent clients that don't suck.
It's pretty obvious that you're a tard and the problem is user error.
I like how all the people who blame OP offer no solution to "his" error. Must be because he's right?
Just rename the files after you download them.
No, but because he's the only one who experiences that problem because he's a brainlet

I prefer doing my artwork with these over anything else desu. I can easily get different thickness in my lines. Lines are uniform and ink lasts a real long time.

Plus drawing in ink is more challenging/fun because you have to change and adapt if you make mistakes.

Neapolitan pot.
In theory you're meant to heat the water while it's upside-down and then flip it, but that's just asking for trouble. I just use the top to boil the water and then pour it.
I can't go back to moka pots now, although it's not quite as good as an espresso from a good coffee machine.
I blend 3 cups of rice and 3 sticks of cinnamon with 1.5 tablespoons of vanilla and 1 cup of sugar.

Let it sit for a few hours.

Throw it in a gallon jug, add 2 cups of milk and a quarter cup of instant coffee mix. Top it off with water.
Forgot to mention that by "throwing" it in a gallon jug, I am straining it.
Cold brew coffee.

Got a two litre jug I fill ans let steep overnight.

Alternatively, I got a drip coffee machine from grandma after she died.
Drinking cold coffee is an abomination.
Cold brew is also insufficient at extracting beneficial alkaloids like cafestol and chlorogenic acids.
Cold brew is inferior to brewing at a constant circulating water bath around 53c.
Only people who unironically advocate muh cold brew, drink it cold. You want the best extraction of coffee, you're going to need to get a sous vide machine and do a hotter brew using the same technique.

How about building a proper business?
Offer services and get payed for them proper, if you have something of value, I will pay you.

If I visit a restaurant, I want to sit down, get a proper meal, pay you, then leave.
I do NOT want to get a nasty, half eaten potato chip for free from you (one I did not ask for), then have you follow me around for the rest of my life while you read through my mail, eat from my fridge and shit all over my carpet.

If adds would be like they used to be 15 years ago nobody would care. But they all have to be annoying popups, auto forwarding or autoplaying videos with annoying sound.
If they were just banners at the top or side I wouldn't even care to block them
>If adds would be like they used to be 15 years ago nobody would care.
Were you around 15 years ago? Because we had fake download links, animated-gif banners, and flash out the ass back then. Oh, and pop-ups. Those weren't blocked by default yet. For a while around that time there were people spamming ads to unprotected 2K and XP machines using net send to make windows pop up a little dialog box.

Advertising inherently does obnoxious shit. It can't be unobtrusive, because if its unobtrusive and not annoying, its ineffective. It has to either deceive you or forcefully distract you in order to work. This is why static banners were abandoned so early on (they were animated and flashing by the mid 90s). There's no such thing as an acceptable ad.

>This technology was developed after I built my machine so I don't know how good the AMD technology is compared to a similar priced i5.
What the hel do you think started the current Core war? AMD came out with the new Zen architecture-based Ryzen CPUs to replace the old Bulldozer-based FX CPUs.
And Ryzen just went about ass-kicking Intel

AMD is a solid choice these days. If you keep up with hardware, AMD is currently the go-to recommended chips now. The ONLY time Intel is recommended these days is if you absolutely need 144 FPS in every game or are a competitive eSports player
>More phases is better but not all ohases are equal
What should I look out for then?
Can you spoonfeed me with a good mobo for the 2700x where the phases stuff is considered good? I tried to read into it, but it is a topic I can't really grasp for some reason...
Also, do all x470 support PBO, or just certain ones?
why not the 970 pro /evo?
price. There's no tangible benefit to NVME SSDs to 99% of users. Especially for the OS.
Looks pretty similar, I think I'm alright. I bought an aftermarket heatsink so hopefully I can OC it enough that it negates the single digit advantage the 2600 has.

Why can't AMD get their CPU onto even just one powerful laptop that's under 17"?

>1TB harddrive
>under 17"
>good graphics card
>8gb+ RAM

Intel has their chip on well over a dozen models with these specs. AMD not a single one. Wtf is their problem?
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
2 reasons, they don't want to put an nvidia card in and they haven't done well on laptop graphics in ages especially power draw. And second they need to get the brand recognition for their high performance mainstream part and stick with the name so that they can compete with the blind masses buying a laptop because it has an i7 inside it. Once they have the part recognized they will be able to get the laptop sales even if they have to stomach team green cards in the same machine for a gen or two.

They can design a chip with lower power draw, they just don't have the motivation because they know it will be a flop until about 2h 2020.
Literally this. Intel was caught pulling this shit, got taken to court over it, and lost in multiple countries, including the EU, Japan, South Korea, and even the United States.

At one point, AMD tried to give a million free CPUs to HP, and HP turned them down because they were so dependent on Intel's bribes that HP literally could not afford a million FREE CPUs from AMD.

AMD makes processors.

Blame the vendors.

There's historic truth to this.
>they don't want to put an nvidia card in
They had a RR laptop with nvidia graphics on Computex, are you retarded?

How does one start to learn to code /g/?
25 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.

also, understand that it's hard (for everybody) so be patient with yourself, it'll take time but you'll be better than 90% of /g/ at coding simply because you chose a real modern language
Is there a point to inner classes now that lambda expressions are a thing?

1) Pick a language
2) Pick an IDE
3) ???
>pick a language
>got to Udemy and find a decent course, make sure to preview it to filter out the pajeets
>do the course
Text resources:
One of
How to Design Programs: http://www.htdp.org/2018-01-06/Book/
Structures and Interpretation of Computer Programs: http://sarabander.github.io/sicp/

I recommend HtDP, personally, as SICP requires a fair amount of domain knowledge in math, whereas HtDP is perfect if you're starting from absolute zero as a programmer. In either case, your best bet with either book is to use DrRacket as your REPL/IDE; use R5RS for SICP and the various student languages for HtDP.


From the above section, you should halfway know a Lisp language (Racket or Scheme), but that wasn't the goal. The goal was to learn the fundamentals of programming and program design.

The next best move is to go to the foundation of most modern programming languages: C. Two easily available books would be K&R and Modern C; K&R has only been officially updated to the ANSI C standard (which means its 20+ years behind modern C practices and standards), whereas Modern C teaches and preaches C99/C11, the most recent C standards.

Since the goal _here_ is to learn the language and its design both for itself and as preparation for future learning, it's up to you which to learn from. K&R is smaller and occasionally terse, but it's because C was a small language at that time. Knowing C11 might be useful on a resume.
