  1. You probably only need that much flux if you're running a board repair shop. Flux pens are easier to use, especially when soldering SMD ICs, which you'll probably do a decent amount of if you're already soldering components like SMD caps.
  2. In reality, nuking a flash drive will do nothing. In the case of attacks using a similar method to BadUSB, for example, the payload is stored in the firmware of the device and your hardware device can't (and shouldn't ever try to) touch that, and erasing the flash chip on the drive will have no effect. But there are a plethora of other attacks one may employ. The safest way to protect yourself is to never plug anything into your computer that you don't already trust. Buy a Rubber Ducky and see for yourself.
  3. The point of this thread is to share your opinion and explain why you think that, not try to persuade them into doing what you want. Please have some respect
  4. There are far too many mediocre gaming channels but hardly any good channels focused on toys/figurines/other collectibles
  5. Saw this on Twitter, it's pretty good advice...
  6. The page would need to first be loaded to determine which user the content is from, which is too late as AdBlock will have already gotten to it. The only way to achieve this is to develop your own ad blocker that can check for whitelisted channels before blocking ads on the page, or load the page, check the channel, disable AdBlock, and then reload the page again, which is horrible.

    It's OK for learning but it's not really used any more. Visual Basic, C++, C# and Java are solid alternatives which are actually useful. I started on VB then went to Java and now use C#, ASP, PHP, Python, Ruby and Deadfish for a lot of my work
  8. If you're completely new I think it'd be better if you start with Java or C# and only move onto C++ when you're proficient in either of those, but that's just my opinion
  9. C# gets my vote It's a lot easier to pick up and master than C++ and once you're comfortable with C# you'll be much better-placed to tackle C++ If you jump into C++ straight away you might find yourself taking longer to master it than if you'd learned C# first. Plus, C# is a good language to know - C++ not as much unless you know exactly what you want to do and where you want to work
  10. Stuck for ideas but here's one that converts text to phonetic alphabet
