  1. Try until you get it to boot once I guess if you can't get it to boot ever again I wouldn't waste money on it by looking for replacements, just get a new base system
  2. https://sebastianraschka.com/Articles/2014_python_2_3_key_diff.html
  3. There are too many to summarize on a forum post, plus this is someone else's thread.
  4. Both 2.7 and 3 require a colon at the end of an if statement iirc. On a side note 2.7 is EOL, if you use python regularly I strongly recommend moving to 3.
  5. Everyone should use ublock. It's open source and doesn't take bribes from anyone.
  6. It's unlikely all your ram sticks died at the same time so it's probably an issue with your motherboard. Try resetting CMOS, maybe run a memtest for a few hours to see if you get a lot of errors with a specific stick or slot.
  7. If I don't parts of it grow up to my eyes
  8. ...sounds like someone is insecure about their manliness... there's nothing wrong with being unable to grow a beard, nor do stereotypes about what women supposedly like have any merit in this respect. Sometimes I wish I couldn't grow a beard tbh, shaving is a hassle and so is grooming it if you let it grow out. dunno, you seem a lot more concerned with how manly other people look...
  9. Everyone knows this. This has been the way Apple has operated for decades
  10. It's going to get all the resources that aren't being used by the host system. If you're not doing anything on the host that's close to 100%. If you need CUDA you'll need to check if your motherboard allows vfio passthrough of the graphics card and you'll also need another gpu for your host system. Yes. Obviously you can use a "server" distro on a desktop and vice versa but its design will reflect its intended purpose. Yes, you can "just install other packages" but you're still limited to what's in the repositories and what is compatible with the rest of the system. A "server" distribution will generally focus on stability rather than pure performance or bleeding edge packages - you can work around that (sometimes) but it's still just that, a workaround rather than a simple native solution. Again, you can make almost anything work, that doesn't mean it's the optimal solution.
  11. I haven't played every game ever so I can't make an informed call... out of the ones I've played it's probably age of empires 2
  12. You can pass 8 cores to the VM, the kernel will take care of allocating resources as needed. If you only use the VM while you're working you'll get close to 100% performance. I guess, but here we're talking about fixed releases like 7 and 8...
