  1. My laptop has been broken for a month, something to do with the soldered on RAM. Brand new XPS 13 stopped working after a couple months. I call in and tell them the error code. They're like, "Yep that's onboard fault we'll have to get a replacement board and send someone out to fix it." Two weeks later they tell me that the part is back-ordered and it will be another month. Two weeks later it's two months. They offer to give me replacement refurbished laptop. I obviously decline I want my brand new laptop not some fucking old water damaged piece of shit held together with glue and
  2. In database normalization having a null value would be a violation. This should be viewed as a weakness of database normalization, however, since in many cases null improves readability, simplicity, and efficiency. In general things should be null if a lack of a value is a valid state. For example, in an array of boolean values indicated a positive selection or rejection, a null value may be used to indicate no decision has been made yet. A separate data structure to get around using null would be inane and needlessly more complicated. It also avoids using 0 as "no valu
  3. You guys probably already know this but I should go ahead and plug PowerToys Run since it adds some features that users are asking for (like spotlight search). That said not really mac os but I really really really like brew and even with scoop and chocolatey they're still not as good as homebrew.
  4. They did say it was free shipping on orders at $25 not $24.95. I'm not sure why he's surprised. These guys are hilarious. They must be rolling in cash.
  5. He did say IT not comp sci. --- The linux kernel is written in C, to modify you'll also have to use C
  6. You should just join whatever band/music class you have available.
  7. A String is sort of like a mix between the two, and that's how C# handles it. Note that IsPrimitive will return false, but it is included in the System namespace. Additionally, in C# it's normally declared with "string" instead of "String", but they mean the same thing. If you were to deal with strings in C, they're just pointers to an array of characters. This means of course, that they are actually reference types. This is why they're ultimately objects. However, in C#, they're treated as though they were a value type (i.e., primitive type). Doing firstString == secondString is a
  8. JavaScript is going to seem very strange coming from another language. Once you embrace its concepts it makes a lot more sense in the web context that it is used for. Still, I find that it is still difficult to develop since debugging can be challenging because it's so asynchronous. As far as static typing goes, just use TypeScript (already brought up, but worthy of another mention), which fixes a lot of this issue. Also try to stick to the big three frameworks instead of something experimental that will be abandoned who knows when. Angular, Vue, or React on
  9. I have some Bose sport in-ears and they don't fall out even with the most sweaty of my exercise routines.
  10. The amount of ignorance in this post is embarrassing. The kind of infinity being discussed is mathematical, which can then be used to solve real finite problems. This much you should have rudimentary understanding of from pre-calculus.
  11. the halting problem has no solution, not because no one has found it yet, but because it doesn't exist. But yes, this does mean you cannot know whether or not you're living in a simulation, at least not with this method.
  12. Except that's not the case, as you spent multiple paragraphs describing how Riley operates with autonomy to give yourself a counterexample for some reason and then stuck to your original thought. The fact you brought up Jocko Willink is interesting, to say the least. First, everyone does answer to Linus because he's the owner of LMG. That's how it works. Second, I don't think we were watching the same thing. James was clearly the one running the operations behind video scheduling, along with a team of other people, and it does him a great disservice to overlook. He pretty m
  13. VS Code is pretty good for python with Pylance and obviously has good support for C#. It's also good for a lot of front-end web development work. I like using Jetbrains stuff for other languages (all linux friendly).
  14. That's just reductio ad absurdum. Encryption and coin mining have an entirely different scope, purpose, and scale.
  15. I disagree, this increases trust in Windows Defender for me. It's not a random block of a legitimate program, it's a block of a program that's attempting to mine cryptocurrency, which is what a lot of malware attempts to do once it infects a computer. Microsoft should continue to block mining.
  16. I'm entirely convinced Dell's support team could be replaced by a recording of someone telling me to go fuck myself.
