So Uber is king now right?
Taxi drivers are cunts, sure, but Uber is literally (yes literally) an illegal organization in Australia. They're cheaper, but a large part of that is because they're straight-up ignoring the regulatory framework surrounding public use vehicles.
Willing to bet a large percentage of Uber drivers in Australia are ex-cabbies, btw.
Regulatory framework is outdated, cuz. Doesn't stop taxi drivers from raping passengers and getting their unlicensed, uninsured cousins to drive their taxi during the hours they're sleeping anyway. All taxi plates do now is provide a legal/financial barrier-to-entry against potential new competitors, which taxi companies are now pissed off about because it's failing. If I want to get in a guy's car and pay him to drive me somewhere at my own risk, why should I not be allowed to?
What are some IPS monitors that are 1440p and greater than 60hz.
No koreans pls.

Will it even matter for the average consumer?

Thinking about buying a Macbook Pro, but dont know much about computers. Main differences between i5 and i7 processors?
I'm building a gaming rig for the first time but i'll not have the money until mid January, yet i know there are gonna sweet deals on Black Friday.
I can't buy all my parts right now, but i can buy something not too expensive, and i was considering the 500gb version of the 850 EVO.
For those who have experience with BF, what should i probably buy?
My music files don't continuously play. I've tried several music programs (foobar, winamp, windows media player, etc.) and nothing works. Every time I want to change a song, I must manually select it from the playlist.
Anyone know a fix to this problem? Google yields very little.
Thoughts on this build /g/?
Is this cpu ok even though it has no pins on it?
don't sweat the small stuff anon. just go with the flow.
Do Xeon CPU's support M.2x4? I understand they only support 1 graphics card.
How do I change the Windows 10 login screen? Everywhere I've looked keeps telling me about changing the lockscreen rather than the login one.
If I use a constructor:class rectangle
rectangle (int, int);
double length, width;
double area ()
rectangle::rectangle (int l, int w)
length = l;
width = w;
int main ()
rectangle rect1(4, 5); // Valid declaration
rect2; // invalid declaration
rect2.length = 6;
rect2.width = 4;
My declaration of rect1 works,...

Got a coding (run time) efficiency question here, /g/. Very long, sorry.
So I made this small program in java since it's the language I'm most comfortable with. Basically what it does is compare a sample small part of an image (say, 10x10 pixels, like on the right) with every other image in a database, looping through each pixel in each image looking for an exact match (like on the left). Uses the BufferedImage class and .getRGB() etc.
The database is currently just a folder with subfolders. The program first makes an arraylist of file names (with C:/Database/[foldername], etc) and then goes through each picture. The picture files are named after the related link it can be found at. (Eg. The google logo would be at location (C:/Database/google.com/logo.png, if an image were from google.com/subsite/somepic.png it'd be called C:/Database/google.com/subsite/somepic.png).
So, it works. The only problem is, there's thousands of pictures (at most 100k+, but most of them under 100x100 pixels) it needs to potentially iterate through, and this is related to a contest (details not important, it's legal and everything), so time matters. I know someone made a similar program that can find the answer in under a minute, and mine can take a long time - say 30 minutes + (probably more, I forget the exact amount), depending on how many images it checks before the match.
Now the tips this person gave me were that he used an actual database (MongoDB) and he used Python. Also, apparently he made it a lot faster by checking if the colors in the sample were similar to the colors in the image and it works that way. But I can't figure out how he did that, since template sizes/image sizes/range of colors used in the match image are all variable.
CONTINUED SLIGHTLY ON NEXT POST (sorry this is so long, I'm aware there's a decent chance no one will even read this).
My main questions here are, generally speaking, how to improve the efficiency of this program. I know java is often seen as clunky and slow, but would moving to another language be that much faster? Would C be fine? I don't know any python, and I know a bit of C, so I could try using that. Think the database is much faster than a filesystem? & Any ideas on that last part, the "checking for color similarity"?
I appreciate any input.
C could make it potentially faster,
but first of all you have to get your algorithm right,
a lot of searches can be skipped,
look for something like text search algorithms, since they are similiar, but just in 2d, and then think about how you could apply that knowledge to 3dimensions.
Just think of more and more ways of how you know when to skip parts of the image, and you should be able to make it a lot faster.
Parallelize the process for each image (too bad you can't just spawn 100k threads in java)
Also java sucks in general, just switch for your own...
