  1. That would take you nowhere fast. The academic world is ruled tyrannically by publications in peer-reviewed journals, which you won't get unless what you are doing is meaningful to at least a significant portion of the relevant scientific community. Some of it may inevitably be sterile and self-referential, but most of the times what sounds abstract and almost philosophical to the layman is the foundation on which applied research builds at some future point. Getting a 5nm fabrication process operational is a drop of water in the ocean in the big scheme of things; quantum mechanics, contemptuously deemed esoteric for most of its centennial existence, is on the verge of bringing about a drastic change in the way we perform, and understand the limits of, computations, and that's just one of many areas where it's starting to bloom. While academia is sadly prone to pettiness and dogmatism, as Pierre Boulle cleverly depicted in "Planet of the Apes", painting it as pure entertainment for wealthy, lazy men just breeds obscurantism.
  2. That is not correct - don't mistake the right of private entities to deny you their platform with a right to actively silence you, which they don't have. The idea that is impossible for anyone but governments to act against free speech is a misconception. Having said that, OP is indeed referring to the first case, so indeed Youtube banning people is not a free speech issue. I think a better way to formulate OP's question is: "Is there an unmoderated streaming service?" Or basically what's the 4chan of streaming. I'm not aware of any, but I'm afraid that's very unlikely, as people can go after the site owners due to videos uploaded or streamed in their platforms, copyright infringement being one example. Hence, I think you have to narrow your search to sites that don't police certain things (as opposed to fully unmoderated), or look for obscure services based in the land of no accountability, but I doubt they'll have the infrastructure for decent streaming. Text is much easier.
  3. Bear in mind that the 660p supports 3.0, but doesn't requrie it - it will work in 2.0 Also, the theoretical bandwidth of Pcie 2.0 x4 (2 GB/s) is slightly higher than the theoretical speeds of the 660p reported by Intel.
  4. No. There may be instances where Bachelor, or more likely Master thesis happen to make a minor contribution, but their main goal is for students to develop and show an ability to tackle a specific subject in more depth, and eventually familiarize themselves with the technical skills required to conduct research in the future. Making an actual contribution to the field is the requirement for Ph.D. theses.
  5. I don't think writing software has much to do with disk speed to be honest, but I'm not a developer.
  6. Yes, you can use either PCIe or SATA. Would have to check the manual, maybe some external port or some U.2 port...unless you plan to use more than 4 SATA drives besides your M.2 drive, it doesn't really matter - just make sure to use the ports labeled just "SATA" in your motherboard's diagram for any additional drive. Yes, but they are different in many ways. Samsung SSDs tend to be on the most expensive side. There are many details that matter for SSD performance, and then again there is more than one dimension to perfromance (random reads, sequential writes, large files, small files, etc, etc), and many details of their design that matter for them (bits per cell: TLC, QLC, SLC, etc; SCL cache availability, the drive's internal controller....). For example, TLC drives are in principle faster than QLC drives, but QLC drives with an SCL cache can make up for a lot of the difference. You can get a veeery rough idea of performance by looking at the rated read and write speeds (but bear in mind that this are manufacturer self-reported). You'll see the fastesr tier reporting figures in the 2000-3000+ MB/s range, lower tier PCIe SSDs in the 1000-2000 MB/s range, good SATA drives typically in the ~500 MB/s, and lower end / older SSDs as low as 200-300 MB/s. Again bear in mind that this is a very coarse, not-standardized measure, meant only to get a clue of the type of drive you are looking at when you lack further information. Manufacturers like Samsung, Crucial, Intel, etc will usually have more info on their websites. TL;DR: you don't need more than SATA SSD speeds, so you're fine either way. If found at similar prices, a TLC PCIe SSD or a QLC with SCL cache would be faster than SATA, in case you ever need it.
  7. I got to watch this now... LOL I don't know whether patent claims are valid or will hold up in court, but regardless, this youtuber guy is on his way to Billy McFarland levels of bullshit... Next thing you know, we'll have Linus saying "I've never liked tool kits, so I went and make my own"... and half his videos go private
  8. Sure, and I have to resort to that (and other less clean methods ) for some programs. My comment was just aimed at OP's intended experience - it seems to me he'll be best served by any distribution whose "store" has the programs he wants. (also to avoid issues like Intel changing their PPAs after you install their software, prompting odd error messages at update time until you figure out why, and where's the new one... )
  9. I haven't done it myself, but my understanding is that the dot method is recommended when applying over a heatspreader (like CPUs' IHS), but for direct die contact it's better to manually spread the thermal paste to ensure full coverage of the die. I don't know if it matters much, you're better served by someone with more GPU watercooling experience.
  10. - Check if your motherboard supports SATA M.2, PCIe M.2, or both - Check prices, there may not be that much of a difference between the less sophisticated PCIe SSDs and the SATA ones
  11. It's called "Formula 1", no need for imagination In a world where the YT channel never made a review of the other case and later removed it before launching its own case, yes, it could have been entirely independent... But in this one...?
  12. Well, I haven't checked Ubuntu, so maybe it would seem barren too I just know that I couldn't find in PopOS' store quite a few programs I installed in Mint through the software manager.
  13. Psst. Now, if he was trained in Chimpanzee warfare, that would be a different story...
  14. Do you see how these qualifiers immediately contradict blanket statements such as: that would preclude any debate on where to draw the line. Once we accept that we do want some speech regulation, instead of refusing any regulation out of principle, then there is indeed a discussion about what is covered and where the line is drawn, and everything becomes more nuanced.
