Is it the best operating system?
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Mac OS is the most powerful operating system in the world.
How old are you kid


No, it's just a wicked BSD userland, Mach microkernel merger that comes tailored to overpriced hardware in an aluminum designer unibody. It once was nice but got worse every new revision. Now you cannot repair that shit and it's designed to break after one or two years.

Can you still get a 3D dock like OS X Snow Leopard in current Mac OS?

I hate this gaussian blur meme design that they have been going with recently

Hi there,
I'm tired of being a neet playing videogames and doing nothing all day, so i've figured i might as well put all this free time for something useful.

I want to learn about computer technology, coding, operating systems, anything IT in general i guess. The problem is, I don't know where to start learning about these topics, without having to go to school. Keep in mind, i know as much as an 70 year old woman about these things, so i want to start with the basics.

How did you guys gain the knowledge you have about technology?

What are the best websites/books on how to learn about these things?

Look up Derek Banas tutorials on youtube. Start with C/C++ and move to Java. He explains fast so remember to pause at will and even google out what the lines do. Take notes on paper (yes, on fucking paper!).

Thats it. Best advice you ever got.
start by learning C++

Best way to learn

if you're not getting past interviews, then you're issue is presentation. What are you wearing? Did you shave or style your hair? Do you make eye contact? Do you hesitate to answer questions? What questions are you asking? Did you do any research on the company and position?

there's a lot of things that are taken into account, those are just some that I look at. Only other thing I would suggest is asking what recommendations they'd make after interviewing you; find out what you did wrong or right and apply it to next time (for me, that question alone shows initiative and willingness to learn and cooperate, which is a huge plus).
>tfw college junior with no internships or any experience on resume
>can't get an internship without experience
>I have no clue what I'm doing wrong with interviews.

They probably received tons of applicants.
I did a recorded video interview and have done a lot of phone interviews.

I shave, shower, brush my teeth, comb, and put product in my hair every time.

Never hesitate on question answering. I ask what an average day is like, how they've handled emergency situations in the past, and what they do for lunch. I usually research companies while writing cover letters to them.

does the file have .php extension? is it being served by a server with php enabled?
I have been using Meteor.js and it seems pretty easy so far, it's still convoluted due to the weaknesses JavaScript has however.

Or something like that, it's been a long time since last I used php...

Is this the best non-open source music player?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
MusicBee is to VLC as foobar is to MPV. I.e out of the box the former is superior because it comes with a shit load of features but with time and patience foobar becomes better (it can do everything MusicBee can but better.)

The auto tag by album is a godsend for people with 'OCD'
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
A music player is for playing music, not looking at.

You just install foobar, point it at some albums, minimize it and forget what music player you are using.
Nah, just download every decoder, download Column UI and you are set.
What the fuck am I reading
you mean MPC. mpv works better out of the box than vlc

I'm trying to get into IT because marketing/sales is fucking terrible and I can't get into it.

I'm done with my A+ 220-901 exam and expected to take my 902 around Labor Day.

My question is, how fucked am I getting into IT without any experience other than fixing people's computers in high school?

Am I destined to be stuck in marketing/sales for forever?

yeah, I took the A+ because I was required to do so by my first job repairing computers at Canadian Best Buy (Future Shop) by the end of my probation.

It was hilariously out of date and totally irrelevant. I barely passed because it was memorization of shit like DOS era IRQs and Pentium 2 voltages in like 2006. but fortunately I got it before they made the certificate actually expire. Not that it ever mattered.

You can get a call center tech support job if you show basic understanding of like DHCP, DNS and walking people through their desktops to renew their IPs or whatever.

A+ is a certificate you advertise to your customers, not for hiring purposes.
Don't listen to this guy, certificates are a meme. People argue that there are "good ones" but when it really comes down to it HR doesn't know the difference between them and the actual technical people are interested in what you know and your experience.

I mean it really depends how you wanna do your career, it's hard to just be "good enough" in IT. You need to constantly learn and evolve, having certificates don't really help with that.

The one area of certificates that might be good at Network Engineering specific: Cisco, etc.
Alright, that I figured. I wouldn't want a call center because I have Crohn's and I can't sit down on the phone for hours and not get up. Help Desk is fine, however.

Understood. Are HDI certs worth it?

Well it's no different now. It expires every 3 years but usually after 3 years if you're still in Help Desk, the cert doesn't matter because you have 2-3 years of experience.

I understand that you have to learn/evolve in the field. Technology changes all the time. HR mainly just looks to see if you match up. The actual interview is when you get interviewed by your supervisor.

Cisco has a lot of value in general. Every company uses something that they make.
>I can't sit down
Sitting down is pretty important in most IT roles. Have you tried a standing desk? A lot of offices will provide for ergonomic accessories like that.
I actually own one at the moment. I own a Jarvis Standing desk from Fully and it's really nice.

My current job doesn't give me that option unfortunately. Call centers are usually in some small cubicle farm or in an open-cubicle farm if you know what I mean. Standing desks would be hard to come by sadly.

Ok /g/ I installed this shit. Now what?

I bought some mini speakers that were supposed to use vibrations to transfer the sound but it just turned out they weren't real and I had been putting them in my butt as suppositories so they were actually just pieces of Lego I bought and that's all.
no it's from Illuminati of course!
why does this kind of thread get so many comments but if i start a bt speaker appreciation thread, no one is even bothering..

dear OP. the wonderboom is pretty decent for their performance and ruggidnes. i dunno about the pricetag in U.S though but they surely aren't the worst option if you plan to use them on hiking and stuff like that
