  1. I would have been much more excited for a Vietnam setting instead, but it could be interesting.
  2. Can confirm that I have not got Hotspot Shield to work on Netflix since they said that. I just get a connection error though. (Works immediately after I turn it off)
  3. Almost starting to get used to the idea of the new form layout... I'm definitely not sure that I like it very much, but hopefully most people do so far. (Though I do definitely feel out of place, not that I didn't before at time with the extreme viewpoints of some of the younger audience lol [Not often that I get to say that at my age])

  4. Pretty sure that it is just 'color 0a' for example (The 0a being the color code).
  5. Write about what career you want, or just pick some random shit, and write about how you plan to get there. Make absolutely sure that you mention accomplishments that you have already done, and overall talk up how amazing you are. Additionally, add in how the university itself will help you get to your career and how helpful it will be. (All of this is coming from someone who won a full tuition scholarship and was applauded for how 'amazing' the essay was, and all I did was make up shit that made me sound good.) *The main point is that the essay is a tool for you to tell them how good you are and how you will be a benefit to the university; not to mention they want you to give them a little reach around here and there.
  6. I was in favor of that, since I happen to be an application programmer; however, Adobe being your price comparison is laughable at best, since they infamous for hiking up their prices to ungodly levels.
  7. I feel like you're very much downplaying the fact that it's a god damn self driving car there mate... (A software feature lol)
  8. Well RIP my chances, but my Ducky is kind of perma broke until I pull it apart to resolder parts and so is my mouse. Right now I'm using a dell keyboard and a lenovo mouse, everyday I want to kill myself because of it... Feenix Save Me!
  9. Well as a long time user of twitter it makes me kind of turned off to the whole thing, since I don't want to heart your crap. I personally miss the favorite and really hate the stupid heart idea... Too bad Twitter won't care.
  10. Yea... Speaking from the point of view as someone in the software development field I can tell you that Software Engineering and autocad are vastly different. For starters a Software Engineer is generally higher up on the food chain in that they manage a software project by working on it themselves, programming and other lovely junk, and corralling the lower level programmers, like myself. AutoCad is just a piece of modeling software that is generally required to be known by employees in the engineering and architecture field. Unless you get a job somewhere being the biggest master of AutoCad to ever live, or at AutoDesk, I kind of doubt that you can just have a job of being a Cad expert. If you want to work with Cad on a regular basis I would suggest looking into some field of engineering or architecture since you will probably get some mileage on it that way, or if you were looking into the software development track I would look into picking up some programming languages and some software development ideas early if you can.
  11. I wouldn't mind some old school flair from some older cars. If they threw in some classic goodies too I'd be excited.
  12. I know everyone loves having physical locations on their soil, but I hope this is just for those companies. I mean if it wasn't it means that smaller spots that don't have data centers in the EU straight up can't have user from their because they only have centers in the U.S. which would be stupid.
  13. Hulu was terrible in that you paid for the service and still had ads too..
  14. I bought the 15" version for my laptop and it has worked awesome for me. It has actually become one of my favorite backpacks I've ever owned and I grabbed it for $25 ($15 after a $10 off from a student referral) Exit: also I should state that I have a 15.6" laptop and it fits with room to spare in it. Additionally it has plenty of padding in it so that I've never had any issues having books and my laptop in it.
  15. I've bought from eBay many times and it varies greatly since it depends on the seller and the product. I've had stuff arrive as early as 1 day to forever long so just wait.
  16. Nice post, I like that you're trying to explain a concept and various solutions to it while still just helping people out not giving 100% answers but still being informative. The programming section on the forum needs more posts like this and less "finish my CS homework" posts. Keep up the awesome work, and hopefully you'll make some more posts like this for different concepts in the future.
  17. Kind of and kind of not. Java is kind of open source but not really at the same time. It can't be used outside of certain specs and still be called Java and needs to adhere to several things including some non open source stuff to be signed off. With the idea of desktop stuff not working out, that's sort of also true but not at the same time. A full fledged GUI desktop application may not run a certain machine, but that's not Java's fault on that end and to make that not happen by instead making software incompatible is a terrible idea. The thing about Java is that it is used alot outside of just dedicated software applications and even if it wasn't write once deploy everywhere programming is amazing.
  18. Google took Oracles Java APIs and customer tailored them to build Android on top of, but by doing so made normal java code incavle of running on the platform. What makes Java unique, and made it so popular, is the JVM that allows a Java program written once to run on any machine that the JVM exist for. Ex: Mac, Linux, Windows on any architecture x86, 64x, ARM, etc. Really they have a real case since they kind of messed up what Java is and is supposed to be without permission on Oracles part.
  19. The ARM jvm that keep in mind runs on top of a lightweight Linux distro can run a robot on a board with a 667mhz dual core cpu with 256mB of ram just fine. So what exactly does that mean?
  20. So many people joining into the hate even though most have little to no software development experience... Mixing up the web applet form of Java and the main jvm is so common that it's crazy as well. Such a massive amount of system run off of Java yet, "Google saved Java they should be greatful" lol. As I've deployed java fot many varying forms of applications from robotics, desktop software, and web applications, I may a little bias; however, the fact that java really is write once deploy anywhere makes it extremely powerful. Android really did mess that part of the equation up on their end, as much as I like Google and Android.
  21. Ranch is gross Goblin cum, and anyone who eats it is an un-cultured heathen.
  22. Not tech news Scratch that, pretty sure I was in tech news.... Abort, sorry getting old or something
  23. Lol, the only thing being replaced by f35s is all of the US tax payers money. The test pilots so far will take f15s over it any day. It's a flying tub of fuck you money. The a10s were retired for who knows why, since no aircraft can compete with it's ground killing power.
  24. Actually check out good mythical mornings video on water tasting to find out. Honestly most the bottled water tastes the same; however you can tell it apart from tap and, yes, tap water.
