This is the current state of web development.

This is almost like those "enterprise java fizzbuzzes" that people used to make fun off, except nobody's laughing and this is all considered serious and well engineered code design.

If we all universally agreed to tell them to go fuck themselves, then they would have no one to turn to and they would have to update.
Shame that's not possible.
would consider that anyone who has to put themselves into a boot camp to get external motivation to "get skill" isn't motivated at all
'boot' camp .. make it as unpleasant as possible . wow suddenly you are out of it, with a scrambled brain & 'total aversion to pain' .. you would hate programming for life after going through a boot camp

Why do you unironically watch your videos above 360p/480p when its not even fucking necessary to watch above those qualities?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because I don't have Australian internet
My craptop only has a 720p screen, and setting Youtube to 720p takes up all of my resources. I usually stay at a comfy 480, and 720 if I need fine detail (like if I'm watching someone use a computer).

Basic steps any idiot can and should do to protect from ISP data collection.

Where are the options in Firefox to disable those?
Fucking retard. If your ISP sells your data, they've been doing it for years. Nothing has changed. Now go be a good goy and read some more Washington Post.
vpn / vps seems to be a good option it was proven to work somewhat before and should be somewhat fine now, only the nsa really bothers to crack that encryption probably, I don't know how they MiM an ssh server or vpn service.

You're a fucking retard. The FTC regulated that until they lost the AT&T suit and lost their powers to do so, so the FCC came in an added regulation to stop the issue before it became an issue. Now the Republicucks want to move power back to the FTC, which now has no teeth, which means ISPs will have freedom to sell this whereas before they didn't.
Nice. For torrents, imho 'disable incoming legacy connections' is also a good idea.

Correct. At least a decade, if not longer.

>he thinks C is a difficult language to program in
17 replies omitted. Click here to view.
This was written by a systems programmer whose knowledge of C++ is grossly out of date, and whose pride and joy Git actually relies on shell scripts, Perl and Tcl, a tacit admission that maybe C isn't convenient or powerful enough for _everything_.

Git was also a trash fire of usability for many years (and still is, to some degree), and had it not been for Github, it would be relegated to being that weird tool you use to commit to the Linux kernel, with everybody else using Mercurial - written in PYTHON of all things.
Linus isn't just a C fanboy, he's a fanboy of the Unix way. Which means, use C when high-performance and/or bare-metal programming is needed, otherwise use interpreted scripting languages for routine tasks. It's not that languages other than C are bad, it's that there should be a clear division between high-level and low-level languages, rather than trying to be one-size fits all.
Your argument can stand on its own without mentioning some dumbass "UNIX way" that's an appeal-to-authority and a no-true-Scotsman on its face.

And that same strategy led git to be wildly unportable to non-UNIX systems, to the point where ports to other systems need a little miniature UNIX environment to go with them. It's 2017 and Git for Windows still needs some dumbass "Git Bash" environment, as if I didn't already have 3-4 other UNIX-transplant environments already.

you know if you are calling other people narcissists you might be one yourself.

the best way to deal with a narcissist is to make sure they dont defeat themselves (literally their entire purpose when talking to you)

You dont call them out on it because already just being a narcissist is like being with your pants down on the first day of school. It fucking sucks m8 and these "narcissists" will do anything they can to get away from that feeling. Thats why they are arrogant, thats why they are rude.

My motivation for posting this was purely out of interest in others.
It's interesting to see what other people are doing in their terminals. You're a moron quite frankly. You're acting like a moron and completely wrong. I assume that you're just upset because you can't participate.

It's pretty interesting actually. Better than the constant GPU threads and the like. Something kind of original you know?

But what about x64 assembly?
the number of people on this board who actually work with x86 assembler versus the number of people who claim to do so and bitch at people about performance optimizations is a ratio that might as well be 0.
honestly who even does embedded x86 development?

>Google has to build a system that can work on a gorillion of hardware models. So it's risky if you want to implement new features to allow them to run on older hardware.
Microsoft didn't have an issue, Windows 10 runs on computers as old as 2005, better support than fucking Apple by a mile.
so wait, android phones get outdated more quickly than iPhones? isn't that planned obsolesce? isn't that android users blame apple for?
