    Toxicable reacted to Nuluvius in Best place to learn HTML, CSS and JS?   
    Pluralsight, picking courses such as AngularJS, Knockout or JQuery perhaps.

    Toxicable reacted to Nuluvius in C# NullReferenceException Problem   
    You have a public variable of type ListBox, LBJan that you never instantiate and you are attempting to access a property of it in a method (textBoxJan_KeyDown) that will be called multiple times. Your code is a mess.

    Toxicable reacted to Nuluvius in C# How to get the Web Browser object to work if you want to use threads?   
    Have you researched your exception? ThreadStateException.
     
    Not to be rude about this but what you are attempting sounds to me like an absolute train wreak... I don't think that you clearly understand threading enough at this point and I would strongly suggest that you go and do some research. Specifically Managed Threading, Task Parallel Library (TPL), async & await and Task-based Asynchronous Pattern (TAP).
     
    I really don't know why you are wasting your time pissing around in old and deprecating technologies such as WinForms either... Switch to WPF & MVVM at least and follow the modern standard patterns and practices that I have listed. I would suggest that you could easily spend the rest of the day reading through those links before you should even touch another single line of code to do with threading.
     
    Ultimately though the decision is of course yours and I have seen you on this forum numerous times before ignoring the advice you have been given... you'll only be back here crying when it all blows up in your face again.

    Toxicable got a reaction from ¨TrisT¨ in c# event/time driven long polling   
    Ok so I am very confused on what you're trying to accomplish with this. From what I can tell you have little experience working with asp.net, I would advise working with some simple asp.net MVC applications to start off with or maybe Web Api depending on what you like. After you understand some more on how to work with asp.net web servers then I'd advise looking into HttpClient for making requests in C#, that's under the System.Net.Http namespace, aswell as the Signal R NuGet package to deal with real time communication, which is actual real time not polling. Which brings me to my next point, polling is not real time, generally polling is a rather bad way to handling communication events are much better way of doing  things.

    What language you use is mostly down to personal preference. 
    I personally started off learning Python, which I think is a good option for starting out since it's so intuitive and like natural english. But now I'm deep in C# and I've never looked back, if I can complete a task in C# then i'll use it.
    Also I'm guessing that you're assuming to use C++ because you hear somewhere that it's used to make windows applications, well most languages can make applications with GUI's. C# can easily same as Python and obviously C++ so again that's why i'd say it's down to personal preference.
    However C++ (as far as I know) cannot do web applications, where as both Python can C# can, which is always something to consider. Most of my personal project's I've just made into web apps since it's so much easier to share

    Choose a Python for beginners or similar and watch it through beginning to end, make sure you're coding along with the person rather than just watching, just watching you'll never learn

    Score List for each manufacturer
    Test conclusion finds that “on average 87.7% of Android devices are exposed to at least one of 11 known critical vulnerabilities.”
    Data for the study collected by group’s “Device Analyzer” app, which has been free on the play store since May 2011
    Study collected Android version and build number info from over 20,400 devices
    Study concludes that most of the blame sits with OEMs
    The Group states that “the bottleneck for delivery of updates in the Android ecosystem rests with the manufacturers, who fail to fix critical vulnerabilities.”
    Study found that Google’s Nexus devices were the most secure with a FUM score of 5.2 out of 10
    Google and OEMs have committed to a monthly security update program, but it is for devices less old than two years (Nexus, three years)
    Most of Android sales are not flagship devices, so this is a problem
    Until Google re-architects Android to support centralized, device-agnostic updates, there’s no solution to security problems
    Chipgate FAQ: Everything you need to know about iPhone 6s controversySource 1: http://www.cultofmac.com/391618/chipgate-faq-everything-you-need-to-know-about-
    Jonathan Morrison’s Video
    Austin Evan’s Video
    Apple outsourced production of A9 processors for the new iPhones to two companies, TSMC and Samsung
    Samsung’s version is 96 square milimetres, TSMC’s is slightly larger at 104.5 millimeters
    Shouldn’t affect performance…. But some owners are claiming otherwise
    YouTuber Austin Evans tested both, and saw TSMC’s hardware saw a longer battery life
    Evans used an app called “Lirum” that identifies which processor a phone has
    He pulled number for reference
    Samsung = N71AP, N66AP TSMCs = N71MAP (6s), N66MAP (6s Plus)
    App pulled temporarily due to compatibility issues, is being put back up
    Apple stated “Certain manufactured lab tests which run the processors with a continuous heavy workload until the battery depletes are not representative of real-world usage, since they spend an unrealistic amount of time at the highest CPU performance state. It’s a misleading way to measure real-world battery life.”
    Apple says that these stress tests aren’t the best way to compare
    Another YouTuber Jonathan Morrison did real world testing, and saw there was differences between the two
    Did real world tests, 4k video, uploading video, Geekbench and at the end the Samsung iPhone was at 55% and TSMC iPhone was at 62%

    At press event Oct 14th, Tesla announced version 7.0 of the Model S software, new build enabling the car’s self-driving features
    Capabilities were first announced last year
    Necessary sensors were added to all Model S cars since last September
    Tesla needed additional time to flesh out the algorithms, which they have been testing
    7.0 released to US, will proceed to Europe and Asia in the coming weeks pending approval
    Model X shouldn’t be far behind
    Features:
    Autosteer maintains speed and distance from the car ahead
    Auto Lane Change moves the car to another lane by tapping the turn signal
    Collision Warning
    Autopark, continuously scans for available parking around the car
    Automatic Emergency Steering
    Side Collision Warning, uses sensors to nudge the car away from danger, while alerting the driver
    Elon Musk called out Autosteer as a “beta” feature, and for users to keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times
    Keeps liability out of Tesla’s control, since they told users not to take their hands off the wheel
    Musk said “If there is an accident, the driver of the car is responsible”
    Version 7.1 will add ability to send car off to a garage, and come back and pick you up when needed
    Tesla is continuously uploading real-world sensor data from 7.0-equipped vehicles to home base
    Utilizes four sensor types on the car: forward radar, forward-facing camera, 360-degree ultrasonic sensors, and a GPS combined with Tesla’s own high-resolution navigation maps
    Musk calls it “fleet learning technology”
    Functionality will improve each passing week, even without a firmware update, since the car is always accessing and improving Tesla’s high-res maps

    Spinning off their back-end manufacturing operations into a new joint venture with Nantong Fujitsu Microelectronics, (NFME) with them essentially buying the bulk of these operations off of AMD
    ATMP (Assembly, test, mark and pack) operations turning into a new, unnamed joint venture in partnership with NFME
    NFME will immediately be buying an 85% stake of AMD’s ATMP operation
    no other partners involved, AMD will retain 15% stake
    NFME will be paying AMD approximately $371 million (approximate net gain of $320 million to AMD after taxes)
    AMD states the sale “further strengthens [their] balance sheet with significant asset monetization”
    Joint venture will remove 1,700 employees from AMD’s payroll

    Toxicable reacted to Glenwing in What is Memory Bus in GPUs?   
    Memory chips are essentially operated in a sort of "RAID 0" type setup, where you access multiple chips simultaneously to improve speed. Instead of writing data to one chip, split the data in half and send each half to a different chip at the same time, and you can read or write in half the time. Memory bus is the number of "channels" the GPU is equipped with, 64-bits for each channel. Higher bus width means data can be split between more channels to improve speed.
    It doesn't affect computational power, but if the memory bus is not wide enough to transfer data as quickly as the GPU can process it, then some of the GPU's cycles will be wasted idling while it waits for memory operations to complete. Improving the memory subsystem will improve performance by regaining those wasted cycles, but only if the memory bus was limiting your performance in the first place.

    Python and HTML/CSS (Don't learn Python on code academy, it teaches Python 2.7 not 3.4  which are very different)
    Python may not be the best language for everything but it gets the fundamentals down without having to worry about finicky syntax.
    And everyone needs to know a bit of HTML/CSS

    Pretty much the same as the other builds but with the monitor you said you wanted and some peripherals
    -You don't need a CPU cooler on a Xeon
    -For what it's worth i'd always get a 250GB SSD over a 120

    All these prices are USD but you said it would be similar in your country, either way this might be the component list you'd aim for
