I use Clementine for music. I used whatever the default player was on GNOME and Unity for about a month and then installed MPV. MPV is too good not to be included in all DEs as a default player.

So what happened in the last year that 4k video playback has become so common place? Was it HVEC?

I remember downloading a movie not too long ago and it barely playing at all. Now I'm seeing them pop up everywhere.

Icons on the deskop become obsolete as soon as you have a more sane way to launch applications.

considering if you double the voltage you halve the current so the wiring would have twice the carrying capacity, also I believe they need to use 600v rated insulation so that's not a problem. the only issue I can think of is the outlets themselves not being able to isolate 240v from itself like it can with 120v and possibly your 120v breakers becoming 120v and your 240v breakers becoming 480v (if they keep the same split phase style)

>m570 are notorious for developing mouse click issues in a year or so.

Very true. I just soldered in a new omron left click and middle click button in mine. It only takes like 10 minutes if you know how to solder and it saves you $30 on a new mouse.

I really like the M570 but they sure use cheap switches in them. If (((Logitech))) wanted to make the perfect memeball they would make the m570 a tad bigger, add a bit more weight, better Switches, and a better scroll wheel. Also get rid of the plastic bearings and put it ruby or metal ones for long life. Then it would be perfect.

Lenovo became world famous in 2005 when it bought IBM’s PC business. Today, the company is the world’s largest maker of PCs.

Huawei is the second-largest provider of telecoms network equipment in the world and, together with the University of Surrey, it is in the vanguard of developing 5G. It has also moved in a big way into smartphones, with its P10 proving to be a great favourite among tech savvy youngsters.

Since the release of its first smartphone in 2011, Xiaomi has become the world’s fifth largest smartphone maker.

Tencent created the QQ messenger app, which has more users than WhatsApp, whose half a billion users earned it a $19bn buyout from Facebook.

Baidu is not only China’s largest search engine, its navigation system is now accurate within centimetres and is on a par with the US Global Positioning System (GPS).

ZTE is one of the world’s 10 biggest smartphone makers and is increasingly jostling for position with Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi.

Alibaba dominates the e-commerce scene WORLDWIDE and its Wall Street IPO was the greatest in history to date. Looking at the overall state of e-commerce in China, sales are forecast to reach US$1 trillion by 2019, larger than the US, UK, Japan, Germany and France combined.

You don't use land-based missile launchers on mobile targets such as carriers.

The missile threat from carriers comes from sea-based and aircraft-based systems not land-based shit.

Ballistic missile are only good at stationary targets.

>It might mean you'll have to re-install Windows
if my windows happens to be completely fucked (won't get to safe mode/emergency boot options/can't load from emergency flash drive, is just stuck at loading) is changing the motherboard a good idea? I've had past issues with the motherboard (it only accepts one stick of my RAM and can't update its BIOS) and was thinking about getting it changed anyways. Thanks for all the help!
>>
>>64395386
It doesn't have any bearing on your current situation anyway. Not like reinstalling Windows is a big deal, or that because your current Windows install is fucked you can't reinstall over it or some shit.
>>
>>64395398
Unless you mean you have stuff on there you need to access.

Just get a spare HDD, fresh install Windows on it and drag and drop the shit you want to keep from the other HDD.
>>
>>64395398
I had a friend working on it with me that said the boot loader might be the issue because it was able to boot from a linux flash drive but not a windows one. He suggested flashing the BIOS and when it was unable to do that decided the motherboard might be the issue. this all is well above my pay-grade

another really dumb question: to back up everything from my ssd, do I just.... drag and drop everything to another drive that I connect to? does that actually get everything?

sorry to drag you into my problems, you seem very knowledgeable and I'm lost as can be

Hardly anybody uses them, which is clear evidence they don't work for many people. All that OP will do is waste money, which is what "ergonomics" is largely about in practice. Getting people to buy things that they don't need and cost a lot of money.

I'm a 18yo, been programming for like 5 months, almost entirely in C and just a lil bit of Assembly using dosbox and TASM for fun.
So far I just made a few utility and math programs for my professors.
I tried python but it felt like I had to learn too much shit and functions to do things """the pythonic way""".
I wonder where I will end up with this.
>>
>>64394924
You're on the right path

I use Python extensively at work too despite being hired as a C++ developer

It's great for testing algorithms, formatting program output for presentation, testing network communication (simulating your customer's weird setup) etc.
