double fug. ok I put it back together and will be looking for a managed switch or a way to nigger rig an old router with openwrt.
>>
>>66034414
VLANs on managed switches are a pain in the ass to set up properly and you need to keep backups of your configs and spare hardware in case something breaks, an smarter solution is to get 2 unmanaged switched and one PC with 2 NIC's, install openWRT(or *BSD, pfSense, etc...) and make two LANs one for each NIC/SWITCH.

doesnt that limit me to just 2 vlans?

Can an old router flashed with openwrt do a vlan on each ethernet port?
>>
>>66034695
Yeah but you can add more NICs/Switches, even 10gbps cards and WNICs down the road, it's just more flexible, plus the extra processing power can be used to do packet inspection and stuff.
>>
>>66034718
good point and good idea. Doesnt work too well for me though because they machine is already overloaded since its also a desktop and a dozen other things as well.
Ill keep this suggestion in mind for when I get a dedicated firewall.

Webdev normally requires you to know at least two programming languages (JavaScript + whatever your framework of choice uses) and at least one flavor of SQL.
Thinking webdev somehow isn't programming is the actual autism. I'm willing to bet literally any webdev knows more about programming than you, OP. Which doesn't say much about webdevs.

Can someone explain to me why it's so important to learn C++ and/or C? It's always recommended here but almost every job listing I see is in Java and C# plus other languages, so what's the dealieo? Is it just to learn the core principals of OOP, is it to understand low level assembly or are there other less advertisd jobs that are available I'm not seeing?

This but it's not always truth. In finance sector, I don't know what is used now, but long years ago it was OpenEdge ABL or even COBOL, but sill there is place for C++ in this sector.
>>
C++? No, I recommend good old x86 assembly
>>
>>66032064
I'd say C++ is about as likely to make you a worse programmer unless you really invest time in it. There are just so many misconceptions about how it actually works I sometimes have to correct people who have supposedly worked with it for 10 years.

But you _should_ definitely learn a few languages. C could give you some insight into how computers actually work. Haskell may teach you some useful thinking patterns. And so on.

I'm sick of useless Java/C# code school grads who get hired as developers and proceed to turn every project they touch into spaghetti because they just don't have the abstract understanding necessary to produce good code on their own.
>>
>>66034619
I learned C# in college with a little C. I tend to agree you can't be totally competent if you haven't been exposed to anything but bog standard OOP. I did a lot of personal projects with C after graduation while on the job and it made me a much better C# dev.
>>
>>66032064
Couldn't tell ya. I taught myself to program with C and never moved on. I've been at it for six years now and probably won't ever get a job. I'm content with working on open source though so whatever.

At least the better LCDs can display HDR content mastered to 1000 nits exactly as intended, and do a better job of making 4000 and 10000-nit content look a little less like blown out trash. OLED sure as fuck isn't the answer to any question I care about, given LG have run out of brightness gains already.

web deb is harder than the senior level math courses I took in uni. Getting a modern JS toolchain set up right and understand how to architect a modern web app is harder than the quantum information theory course I took.

codelets will have you believe that looking at extremely simple toy problems using boring and easy proof techniques citing theorems they didn't come up with and using shitty unmaintainable shit written by codelets like R and Mathematica makes them superior when in reality it simply gives them a superiority complex and a chip on their shoulder so fucking big it could contain my node_modules folder.

Building distributed systems required in modern web infrastructure is fucking brutal and requires an understanding of many moving parts at many abstraction levels. There are so many fucking codelets on this board and /sci/ who haven't accepted that their Ph.D or MSc degree from a shitty state school in some """"hard""" STEM field with no industry to support it won't get them a tenure track job at any school and won't get their foot in the door at the most basic of companies, because these companies aren't looking for fucking codelets. When will they learn.

ML and CV sound sexy, but they really aren't (unless you are in cutting-edge research maybe, I wouldn't know). I did that kind of shit for 2 years and desu I find the webdev work (backend architecure stuff) much more challenging. At least you get a high-level overview of your product, and help shape it, instead of blindly crunching numbers.
In the end it's all gluing algorithms and libraries together.
