Nice swastica shirt, where to cop?
The reason that model is expensive is that it has a lot more external finishing work done on it than the cheaper Prospex divers, including the use of some tin polishing (what Grand Seiko call 'zaratsu polishing') and the case and bracelet are made by the same Seiko division that makes cases and bracelets for Grand Seiko models.

It is up to you to decide if that external finishing on the case and bracelet are worth spending that much for, considering the model still uses a 6r15 movement.
The middle one is god tier the rest are shit.

it won't let me

why does /g/ not recommend tilling wm to newbies?
just tried one for first time and it's comfy af + extremely convenient
and it's not difficult to use in the slightest
can't believe I've gone so long without using one
especially on macOS which lacks proper windows managing features

I'm not into learning 30 shortcuts just so my screen is a little bit more neat. I'll just fucking drag shit to the sides of the screen, thanks.
Also, I don't mind you using 4 (potentially 5) web browsers, but how can you have such shit taste for music and end up here?
But that's horribly slow.
it takes less than a second. I understand macOS doesn't have window snapping by default but there are software solutions for that shit too.
I actually recommend Tiling WMs to everyone I know. They changed my life.

Which is the superior stove technology, induction or gas?

I need to replace the stove and I have the option of either.

Choose one. Over here, I haven't ever seen a stove that doesn't use 3-phase power, even in the crappiest of apartments.
...do you think it's pure copper?

They're tin or stainless lined.

Hell, I have two smaller pieces that are silver lined.

The only pure copper bowls I have are for whipping egg whites
Oh wow. What's direct heat anyways? I guess you mean thermal radiation?

Induction stove makes currents in ferromagnetic materials like some steel or iron and that makes the pot heat up. Then the heat transfers to the food in some way depending of the surface material of the pot. The ratio between thermal conductivity vs. thermal radiation is different between cast iron, carbon steel, stainless steel and non-stick coating surfaces. But anyways, induction definitely doesn't "directly" transfer heat to food. Microwaving would actually be quite direct heat transfer into the food.

But you'd have to retard to not understand there's difference between different ways of transferring same amount of heat into food.

But wich is better? As said, gas is pretty sure better considering culinary aspect. Really fast to change power. Induction should have the same property but induction compatible vessels that have thick bottoms that have high heat capacity. Also I'm not sure if crap induction stoves have good power modulation. Also try doing wok with induction stove. Depends of the model too but this Siemens stove was driving me crazy when I tried to fry and flip pancakes. Every time I take the pan off the stove some notification beeping starts yelling about the empty slot. It also starts yelling for any spills on the control panel

But induction stoves are really energy efficient, powerful and good enough for me for most stuff. Also easy to clean.
Gas with aluminium/copper bottom pan>induction and yes i have both, also since i like smoked meat, wood and charcoal.
>when you experience an earthquake, this option is better
>when you are not experiencing an earthquake, that option is better
So for all those who are experiencing earthquakes 4 days a week, gas definitely the way to go.

My faptop finally crashed and I purchased a new 14 inch HP notebook with 16GB of Ram, Intel i5, and a solid state 128gbHD. It was what they had at the store I went to - I didn’t bother specing a computer out online because of how soon I needed it.

I paid 800$ for it - Did I get memed? i havent opened it yet so I can still return it.
Why cant I get QubesOS to boot on my x200?
also should i get an autismpad

i really just need to be able to run multiple powerpoints/word docs and a browser. Sometimes i play old school runescape but thats about it
looking at this from a local ad:
x230, 16gb, 240 samsung ssd, i7 3520, battery lasts for 3 hours. condition looks to be very good
$400. overpriced y/n?

The thing is that when I connect my phone to any laptop it does not give me the option to transfer files. I have tried everything off the internet, even restore the phone to factory setting but nothing seems to fix that shit which is also the main motivator for a new phone. The cracked screen is a catalyst.
Use gsmarena's phone finder to search for phones with the specs important to you. Then read reviews.
Yeah, I really think it's a hardware issue. The fact that it's lasted this long just makes a stronger case for that. I've had that problem before. There's only so much you can turn up the volume before you just end up blowing out peoples voices.

It's a shame too, because otherwise it's pretty good hardware. But there's no way I'm dealing with that again, or busting out my blutooths every time I want to have a conversation. If you're one of those people who just texts it's probably a better deal.
How do you filter by verizon only?
Your phone is not a USB drive. You have to enable USB stuff (I forget what off hand or I'd tell you) in developer options (which you enable by clicking the OS version or something a bunch of time in the about section of settings) to do that. I set up a SMB server on my desktop and use ASTRO to move files over WiFi to avoid that. You could also send files via Bluetooth.

int* function() {
int *var
It should be the second one, but because the language is retarded it's the first one.
The second one, spaces in type names should be avoid where possible.
a: the integer that pointer points to is read-only, the pointer itself can be changed
b: the pointer is a constant, has to be initialized and won't be changed (ignoring C/C++ aliasing clusterfucks) thus will always point to the same space in memory, the underlying memory does not need to be constant

Why don't computers have a silent mode? Most of the fans on my pc (GPU, PSU) are turned off a lot of the time any way. Why not, what with the frequency/voltage scaling of modern cpus, have a mode which turns off all the fans for when you watch a film? I would've thought that since passively cooled things like phones and tablets being able to output 1080p a modern cpu could do the same?

What am I missing?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
yer missing that it's not a big+obvious enough market
if it were, manufacturers would've been all over that shit, cuz technologically it's quite achievable
the question is one of "will the benefits outweigh the costs" for each individual manufacturer
reason why I'm running 100% no-moving-parts hardware

not the same feature. Compare:
- "shut off fans if the temps fall low enough"
- vs "shut off fans and throttle if temps get too high"
the latter guarantees silent operation, the first gives you performance on demand and does not guarantee silent operation
>the question is one of "will the benefits outweigh the costs" for each individual manufacturer
also, this is why we need the *option* of open-source firmware to allows us to DIY this shit up
The components are not of the same architecture.

Phones can be passively cool when watching stuff only because ARM is essentially based on being a low power consumption architecture. Thus receiving less power it also heats less.

But such architecture needs really small circuits and a lot of optimized parallelism to work. Also RISC architectures use a technique called pipelining (read more on that yourself)

x86 cpus cannot do 1080p video, or even virtually anything, without adequate voltage, thus also more heat.
>- vs "shut off fans and throttle if temps get too high"

And you think that works by magic and rainbows? It's the exact same thing, you set the fans starting temp above the components throttling point, or set it to 0 at all times. Done.
It'll start throttling at around 90C.

The best search engine

Why do you still use cuckcuckgo instead of a searx instance?
It works, I just wish it didn't load so slowly.
because idk what it does better than cuckcuckgo
use another instance that just searx.me

you can define the search engines it uses, it isnt hosted on amazon, there are multiple instances you can use it with rather than just using the duckduckgo.com homepage, and you can even make it incorporate the ddg !bangs
>still using search engines that push net neutrality onto you
how do searx instances deal with google's captchas and bot blocking bullshit?

if i google "something index of" like 2 or 3 times i get a captcha. so how instances deal with this?

Seriously though, this language is pretty cool but it has the most hateful syntax. It's the epitome of "write-only" code.
