    How good it is to use a pc without nvidia drivers?

    If you're running a graphics card, it's always best to install the drivers for that particular card manufacturer.

    My brother wants to know

    Windows 10 is pretty stable. The only reason not to use it is if you're experiencing compatibility problems with older software. Any system instability is likely a result of something other than OS wrong with your system. And if it is the OS, something that should be able to be corrected by messing with some configurations or such.

    RAM speed in programming

    Unless you're doing something which pushes an unusually large amount of data or have hardware that's severely limited, it's more or less moot. One of my points is actually Project Euler, which is so designed to perform large calculations which require unusual approaches is all about solving problems using superior algorithms rather than superior hardware. I'd like to make a distinction, however, between understanding hardware and using it. One of which is critical to optimized algorithms and the other unnecessary for the scope of this topic. The amount of RAM is far more relevant than its speed.
  4. If they don't like their working conditions they can just quit. Programmers especially have the choice of working at way better places, like a bank or retailer or something. Their willing sacrifice wouldn't make me feel bad in the least.

    RAM speed in programming

    Worry about it when it becomes relevant. It's relevant when your best optimized algorithm isn't good enough still. Algorithms > hardware.
  6. I see a problem with the fact I need a dongle to play music in my car.
  7. Bluetooth is literally garbage compared to my analog output. - Wireless devices require batteries. Batteries require charging, batteries degrade over time. - Bluetooth has latency. - There's always going to be some issue with connectivity. - Digital signals requires circuits in the earbuds. My experiences with bluetooth have been a nightmare. I want my headphone jack back. F Apple.
  8. How are you! It's been a minute.

    The memes for this are amazing.

    Aid with packet tracer

    That's because the depth of the information is deep, I had a similar experience.

    JS basic issue

    You're going to need to post your HTML.

    Aid with packet tracer

    Are you looking for help with packet tracer or just want a study guide for the CCNA?

    What are some ways to calm down after going to gym?

    There's a difference between hurt and injured. You're fine. A lot of the time moderate to high levels of activity just hurts. Just make sure you give yourself adequate recovery periods.

    [Javascript] Can a function call itself?

    Uh, nah, I just quoted the wrong message. I'll edit it. I was speaking about recursion.

    [Javascript] Can a function call itself?

    Don't do this. Please. Rewrite your algorithm to not be recursive. Recursion is harder to read and less performant. The performance difference can be huge, actually. It's an easy way to run out of stack space.
