Are there any programs that can create other programs?
Like I just tell it to make something and it compiles it for me? Even randomly?
>Like I just tell it to make something
perhaps you could even create a specific set of terms and instructions to tell it what to make
you could call it a programming...lanugage...
but what would such a program that compiles your instructions into a program be called?

So I'm still on Windows 7, considering the upgrade to 10, but honestly the spying shit still really concerns me. Can you actually turn all this shit off yet in a legit fashion or are you just getting spied on and nothing you can do?
You can try but it's pretty much an uphill battle. I switched to Linux initially bc I was a tin foil hatted faggot but I ended up loving it for the ability to feel like I have full control over my pc.
Alright, you know the drill:

Is the amazon fire a good tablet for mom? She mainly browsers the net, watch videos on youtube and netflix and checks her email.
>16 GB of RAM is too much they said
>It isn't even enough
kms for falling for the /g/ memes. at least my gaming laptop supports up to 64 GB of RAM so I can just buy some sticks and upgrade it.
Has anyone else fallen for any dumb autist ramblings?
I'm building a computer for my brother, here's the specs. Any suggestions or does this seem like a solid setup for 1080 gaming?
I wouldn't have gone for the i7 but he says he wants one.
I bumped the Graphics card up to the 1070 after he said he wanted the i7 so not to have any bottlenecks.
Don't build him a PC. He will end up bitching at him whenever something goes wrong -- hell, he even wants an i7. You only need an i7 if you're rendering video. Tell your buddy to do his own research on the PCMR wiki.
Why is /g/ so obsessed with calling everything a botnet and throwing hissy fits?
Don't you realize you're doing that on the biggest botnet of them all? Yes, the internet itself is now a botnet and there's nothing you can do about it. Your ISPs record your browsing data, using a vpn won't help because the requests to and from your pc still go through your isp.
Not everyone lives in the United Kingdom you paki.
I use proper opsec, and i don't even have an op. Run a VPS in Switzerland and setup a VPN. Ain't got anything to worry about as long as you use HTTPS, and 80% of websites use it nowadays. A few forums i use don't have it, but hell, all i had to do was PM them Let's Encrypt.
4chan isn't a european website, it's a multi-culture website, mr. Paki.
Serioulsy. why is this shit allowed?

>All one ecosystem that works together seemlessly
Why aren't you using the best ecosystem, /g/?
Honestly, yeah. Windows is the only one to have really understood the whole "one seamless platform" thing. You get one operating system, and you get it on your phone, your tablet, and your desktop. When you're on your desktop your phone just pushes any notifications there and you can use messaging from the desktop just like it's a phone. The tablet can run desktop-level software without any trouble, because it runs a full desktop OS. If you have a separate desktop then you can just set your tablet to act as a secondary monitor without any trouble.
That shit is nice. It's one of the only systems where I feel like I'm using something genuinely futuristic and convenient.
Apple has been doing this for years. It's about time Microsoft caught up.
First off, I'd like to mention that Apple nailed down message forwarding to desktop-class OSes years ago.
The problem with Windows Phone is that it doesn't have developer support. It can be the greatest operating system on the planet and die in the vine from lack of interest.
Also, I notice you emphasize how well the Surface can run desktop software, and it's true that the Surface runs desktop software very well. But what about tablet software? Realistically, how practical and user-friendly is a Surface with no keyboard attached? Not very, I'd venture, since the same issue afflicting Windows Mobile applies to the desktop Windows app store, resulting in few competent touch-optimized apps of the caliber seen on Android and iOS.
What I'm trying to say is that I find it disingenuous to call the Surface computers "tablets" at all. Technically, sure, but who's actually going to use it that way? And how often?
Hey guys, I recently got an X61 for $60 and replaced the following parts.
Hard drive -> SSD
RAM 2GB -> 4GB
Heatsink and fan assembly
I went ahead and installed Antergos with KDE.
I'm fucking loving this laptop but the top has been abused quite badly. So I've bought some carbon fibre wrap for the lid but I'm having second thoughts. What do you guys think?
Do I need this thing? It's really hard to get in and it's fucking ugly.
What am I in for?
Why does Microsoft Windows™ only work on Intel/AMD/VIA?
It's not coded in assembly so what's stopping them from just recompiling it for ARM?
Are chinese smart phones good enough?
does anyone on /g/ have any experience with them
okay so since 2016 iv gone through a samsung s6, and an iphone 6 plus
both had faults after 4 months of use, had basic phone issues with (battery,simcard) etc
im thinking about just getting a $100 chinese smartphone to browse, text make calls with
how durable are these things will it last more than 4 months before i have to take it back
You're just asking for trouble. Exploding batteries, breaking screens...
Just save, buy an iPhone7 and move on. Really, oinstead of buyuing two chinese phones per year, some operators allows you to RENT it, which is cheaper.
were there always apple shills in /g/ like this? or is it the influx of redditors bringing with them apple normies?
might also be counter-contrarians
So the Sennheiser HD 598 CS are $100 now at amazon, how they compare to the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x ?
Ok so I'm new to the whole graphics card game, and I'm looking for a decent card for around $100. I'm close to pulling the trigger on a GeForce GTX 750ti SC. There are some deals online right now where you cna get one for about $90-$100. Should I get one /g/, or is there a better alternative for the price?
Okay, I have some questions about video game programming
How long would it take to learn enough to be competent and create a game like Metal Gear 2 for the MSX? Not MGS2, but the 2D game from the early 90s. Basically, it'd be a 2d stealth game with a top down viewpoint.
What languages should I learn? What software should I use? Also, I want to code it myself. My only experience in coding/programming is front-end web development, and a little back-end with PHP....
Try gamemaker studio, java/c++, or something similiar. Gamemaker is probably the easiest, GML is fairly easy to learn.
And to make a game a similar to MG2 probably a couple of months depending on level of detail.

50-80$. If there are any headphones that you absolutely recommend and are just outside of this price range I'd love to hear it
