    optional, samsung stops update like 2yr from launch anyway
    btw custom roms & developers do have nightly builds

    You still get updates while rooted. As long as you are using the stock operating system. However it is not surprising if installing an update breaks root or softbricks your device.
     
    For assistance on the materials and steps to root your phone, please ask on the appropriate XDA forum. No one here is going to hold your hand or offer device specific information with regards to rooting and custom software.
     
    I don't have an S8. Good luck.

    Yeah I did consider going there, it's just I've never posted there before and have been on here loads. I might go ask on there then. I don't mind if it breaks root updating my device, But I don't want it to soft brick it... If I'll still get updates on the stock os I might consider rooting then... I'll ask on XDA. Thanks all!

    I doubt that would work. or if it did the signal would probably be really degraded and poor.... something stupid for linus to try xD

    Yes because a light burnout is easy to miss. And if the screen starts to burn, it will spread very quick.

    It seems a bit too good, but the prices are always falling. I already looked it up a while ago and there were some serious offers for ~$170, so it might be legit.

    Well the plastic doesn't separate but the metal front looks like it will pull away, I'll have to try some pliers on it.

    And you forgot to calculate the space used by the parity for data redundance.

    Snifferdog3 reacted to Electronics Wizardy in Different size HDD for RAID   
    well one drives worth of space is parity, so you have 400gb usabe
     
    Do you need the space? Id save the power and not run the nas unless you need it.

    Snifferdog3 reacted to Acedia in Different size HDD for RAID   
    A traditional RAID5 is limited to the size of the smallest disk. So you'd get 400GB. I don't know if FreeNAS offers any solution for that.

    Snifferdog3 reacted to Electronics Wizardy in Different size HDD for RAID   
    You can run freenas on less than 8gb of ram, the extra is just used as a disk cache.
     
    But with that hardware you might want to use unraid.

    The idea that you cant do something in a particular language is usually wrong.
    C# is perfectly capable at getting those specs.
    OpenHardwareMonitor
    https://openhardwaremonitor.org/
    https://github.com/openhardwaremonitor/openhardwaremonitor
    Complete hardware monitoring app written in C#.
    https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1115618/CPU-Temperature-System-Information
    Project written in C# using the dll from OpenHadwareMonitor.  Could be a good place for you to start.
     
    Use what ever language you like the look of.  C, C++, C#, Delphi (so nice to hear its still being used;), JS, woteva could all get the job done.
    I avoided all Cs when I first started coz I couldnt handle the look of the code, all those squiggles and wotnot put me off, so I went with pascal/delphi.  But then my bad memory stopped me from getting my head around all the oop stuff, never stopped me from making LOTS of utils for myself tho.  Now I ONLY do JS coz it was nice and simple for my bad memory (no enforced systems helped me alot).  Now JS is getting a lot more to it but my ground knowledge is so complete now its not proving a problem.  Seriously, just pick what ever you feel comfortable with they all have their plus and minus and once you learn one learning another isnt that bad, they all kinda relate.

    Here i did a quick search and this answer shows the WMI method for the CPU temps. Apparently OHM works too
    https://stackoverflow.com/a/48488620/2748412
     
    Basically from your desktop is 2 dozen of mouse click + 5 lines of code to have an interface with that info showing so about 2 minutes.

    All parts and CPU info CPUZ gets the info from is WMI which works with nearly any popular languages. WMI in C# is 2 lines to import the library and then i de believe the call was an SQL query aliike such as "Select * FROM WMI_Management" of something like that and you read the table data which include buch of data like voltage, watts, temps, HDD RPM, Memory read/write rate.

    If you plan to use Notepad++ (if that's what you are comfortable to use), you won't need the full Visual Studio anymore because you will probably not write any code in it anyway.
    In fact, you can perfectly integrate Clang and/or the Visual Studio linker (link.exe) and compiler (cl.exe) into Notepad++ with the NppExec plug-in.
     
    (One of the numerous advantages of C is that a text editor gives you enough structure, there is no need to maintain "project files" and "user settings files" and whatever Visual Studio will generate for you...)
     
    edit:
     
    YouTube is probably not the best resource for learning C as it is more about watching than about reading. But there's always Wikibooks for you:
    https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/C_Programming/Intro_exercise
     
    Note that some of the contents are Unix- resp. Linux-specific, i.e. the call to "GCC". Clang has the clang command on Windows, the Visual Studio toolkit has cl.

    Great, yes I don't just want to write one program, maybe eventually I can get a job out of it, so C it is then.

    The good thing with pointers is that you'll have to learn about resource management. If you ever write stuff in C and then decide to "move on", you'll write much more efficient code in your next language.
     
    Unless it's C#.
     
    Yup - we're here for you.
     
    Your first real programming language will always have the steepest learning curve of all. One advantage when starting with C is that you won't have to care about OOP, MVC or whatever concepts you might have in mind. Because it won't bother you with them.

    Well i am not gonna vote in the poll. I will advise you this. If you want to just make one program use whatever you want. If you are into programming and maybe thinking working as a software engineer start with C.

    Grab some books like "C programming language", "C in depth" and "C programming: a modern approach" and prepare for some really long long nights. I used to like that in the past. Now i am used to falling into that shit called php

    Yeah C should get the Job done. But C can be a bit overwhelming as a new programmer. Especially pointers confused me a lot when I started to learn C/C++ . But if you need any help with that then you can just keep posting here in the forum or on stack overflow or so.

    I agree, I don't want to be doing high level stuff at the moment, just simple applications that's can work with hardware, once I get to know how coding working in a few years then sure I can try to go to some hard languages like C++...

    Yep, that's what I want to start with is a basic pc hardware monitor, so C should do the job.

    All programming languages work with hardware. You'll just need to add more abstraction and wrapper code to get the same results. And C# is much less performant than C as it will have to be run in an ad-hoc virtual machine (you don't compile native-level machine code in .NET languages) which is not recommended for a CPU-Z-like tool at all.
     
    It surely is.
     
    (Arguably, Lisp/Scheme or Pascal would be even easier, but they are not the right tool for this job.)
