>a bad psu is a good way to kill your build.
unless you're buying a literal no-name chink brand it literally does not fucking matter. almost all psus from well-known brands (even the budget ones) have protections to shut down in case if something happens and they don't spontaneously explode unless you really fuck up.
seriously you don't need a 650w gold psu for every build. your 450w bronze unit will do just fine, sure it will somewhat more noisy but it's not that big of a deal.

Thanks, I'll have to find out about delivery conditions, I might go with the seasonic if it can beat amazon's deals with shipping included.

Soap is technology

What is the best soap and why isnt it Dove?
37 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
This anon is the true patrician.
I never get that either.
Liquid soap isn't even more expensive I think.
Sorry, yes. I definitely meant 'where'. I've spent enough time bored reading the ingredients list to notice SLS on literally everything.

Anglo here. Lots of chemicals are regulated and only sold through registered pharmacies, and only if you have a 'valid reason'. Can you just walk in and ask to buy it? Does it come as a solid block or some sort of liquid that needs to be mixed into a gel?
But since we shower everyday we don't really need the best detergent that takes all the oil away from your skin. In today's world a soap that gets rid of enough dirt and oil to make you smell good without drying your skin is perfect. There are other even more expensive soaps that do the same so I think dove and a shower gel by Rexona (sensitive) are the way to go.
I didn't mean buy it separately.
Buy any cheap hand "soap"...just don't buy real soap because only hipsters would do that.

How would they increase my job security?
>my professor says we need to have an inline comment for every line so its easy to understand what is going on

your professor is a dumbass, code should be mostly self-documenting with comments explaining why you decided to do certain not-so-obvious things
you're being set up
the industry is about obfuscation. make your shit impossible to read so they cant steal your work.
if you make comments, people are just going to steal your work, make improvements (there are always improvements) and then sell it closed source. fucking you. it's always going to be a little bit better than yours because you help others understand and steal your work.

They are shoving horsecrap into idiots' throats garnishing it with specific terminology to hide their bs.
The actual headline should be "ai bots failed and shut down"
There is a huge "AI" hype going on right now. Same thing happened in the 80s with "expert systems".
Marketeers behind the hype machine will eventually move on to something else.
>What does /g/ make of this
journalism is garbage
Or it's just a feedback loop.
>The “chatbots” Alice and Bob modified English to make it easier for them to communicate — creating sentences that were gibberish to watching scientists.
This is all supposition. Since we can't understand their "language" we have no way of verifying that it contains any information. It could be simply gibberish.

Not a huge fan of the 'A U T O M A T I C', but I like everything else about it better.
I'm sure it'd look fine, but I just like the feel of a smaller watch.
i really want to like that but every time i see one of seiko's "burt" dials i cringe.
How do I prevent all these scratches on my watch? I've inky had it for like 2 weeks and its already scratched to buggery. My other Chinese one which was a dollar cheaper didn't scratch at all.

Dude, that's ETSII UPM
That is only because you are not unionised. Programmers in Europe are unionised and get paid overtime. It has nothing to do with Automation if you do not even keep the union tech from the 1800s

We are already there with the exception that we don't have UBI
UBI is the carrot on the stick
libtards will beg and scream for it
conservshits will violently oppose it

thats how the trick keeps on running.
it was good until it became so good it replaced waged workers
