My sister needs a Casio fx-CP400 calculator for high school advanced math. It's what her school needs us to buy.
How do you rate this calculator?
Pic related, it's a CASIO FX-991 ES PLUS C, identical to the FX-115ES PLUS
>tfw my university has a retarded calculator policy where it requires the American model version despite being in Canada
>tfw will have to buy a new one for my exams
Buying as gtx1070 right now, but was sure you guys could answer a quick question, whats the difference of all the versions? and which one is more desireable? which brand is better? asus, msi, gigibyte, etc.
Why do people still use mac? It's so shitty. The app store is a fucking clusterfuck, users have no liberty and are forced to follow the decisions of a group of morons. Trying to reinstall an older version on a friend's computer but it won't let me download anything but pic related from the app store. Friend's computer is old and sierra doesn't support it. Have to reinstall because drive failed.
For personal use? I have no idea. It's garbage.
That said I use it daily because iOS robots dutifully buy even the most simple CRUD apps like the consumerist animals they are. God bless them for letting me work from home and still make decent money.
same reason people use TI calculators
TI calculators aren't actually better than the competition, they just have contracts with schools that say "you will teach curriculum using our products, and we will provide you with some funding in return"
and then people are taught how to use one ecosystem, and only one ecosystem, so when they get out of school, they automatically are drawn toward what they already know instead of having to learn something else
hello will someone please make planescape: torment compatible with chromebook?
You can solve fizzbuzz, right?

How exactly do I set up/use Greenify? I have xposed now but do I tell it to suspend soecific apps or does the auto setting work? Does this shit even work? I never noticed a difference before but didn't have a rootable phone then.
Are there any other programs that do this better or is Greenify the best option for battery life?
Well you add apps to the Greenify list (they show on the main screen) and then it should auto-hibernate.
Honestly it doesn't save that much, the force doze setting has the greatest effect but the app named Force Doze is much better at it.
use amplify in addition to what others have said about greenify to really cut down on idle battery usage. you can use its recommended "safe to limit" settings or you can look around for some guides to get some crazy savings at the possible expense of functionality
My son is getting older and now likes to tinker with shit. Sometimes expensive shit like my e-reader. You know what it was like when we're young, take shit apart, can't put it back together.
I was thinking about getting him an electronics kit. But unlike pic related, I don't want him to program using our computer. Nor do I want something so involved it will cause him to develop autism. I was thinking maybe a simple light kit with switches. He's too young to solder. any ideas?
Hey /g/nu, e/lit/ist here.
Is it true that modern printers (about a decade ago or so) puts a mirco mark on every single piece of paper that passes through it, that identifies the printer it came from like a fingerprint?
And that windows 10 has access to the fingerprint?
Can they track you from your paper? Is it some security feature like how tazer guns have that confetti pocket?

Why haven't you told me about KDE connect earlier, /g/?

It's too useful, it has too many features, it doesn't fit a minimalist aesthetic.
Why else do you think /g/ hates KDE and all associated projects?

We need a phone with cameras like this NOW.
The point is: They could've been much better. Nokia 1020 pureview was a proof of that, but it was a flop because it was overkill, a 1/1.8~1/2" sensor would have already delivered excellent quality without having a bulky lens like the 1020 did.
I can't fathom why Apple still use shitty 1/3" minuscule sensors, Google was on the right track fitting a much "bigger" 1/2.3" sensor in it's pixel, too bad it is expensive as fuck and 1/2.3" sensor is still quite small.
Why aren't you using Fedora? At least it's better than Debian!
if i made a mistake i would just uninstall it.
Has anyone ever used a rubber ducky to get someones passwords? was it a success?
are you selling them by any chance?
Who here is /spatrys cup of linux/?
Is Windows 7 safe to use today? I have Ubuntu 16.04 but I'm just not as comfortable with Linux as I am Windows. Everything feels so different and it sucks when I try to use a guide on how to solve a network/internet problem and there's only a solution for the Windows OS and not the Linux because it seems Windows is that much more common.
Here at microsoft we are deeply concerned over your choice of operating system. Did you know that windows 10 is compatible with all of windows 7 software, and it can run Bash? You get the beat of both worlds with windows 10. Upgrade today for $99 and we will donate .60 rupees to the National Indian IT job foundation, ensuring kids like you can have a future in IT and software development.
Why did you get into technology, programing, etc?
Were/are you much nerdy/"left brained"?
How do you feel about it now?
How do you feel about this overall?
Idk, I'm just in a tough point in life where I'm unsure what to do and I'm not sure whether to go for tech course or multimedia or prostitution or what.
So some insight would be appreciated.
How did you get into... all this? Was it just instinct or what?
>Why did you get into technology, programing, etc?
IDK my dad is an Engineer at Sony, my mom is a maths teacher. I probably got influenced
>Were/are you much nerdy/"left brained"?
Not much nerdy. Wtf is left brained
>How do you feel about it now?
What? I'm doing Bachelors in Engineering, have a job and I'm happy with it
>How do you feel about this overall?
If you're passionate about tech, go and study it. Even if you hate it in the future, you'll have a skill that is in demand and easy to move into another career. Don't go and do a fucking liberal arts degree and be no use to any company
I never touched any of this stuff until 17.when i finished school. Took it cause i liked vidya. Now i love programming so that shit every day. Have a full time job as a web dev. Good times.
So what exactly is web dev and how is it a career?
It can't be just making websites since my grandma can use WordPress.
Yup, pretty much just making websites. Major bucks are in making bloated websites and internal intranet apps for big companies.
If you are only used to WordPress, either experiment with Drupal or learn a real web framework.
>my grandma can use WordPress
Then she is in the minority. There still is a huge chunk of the population out there that believe that their access to the internet depends on the button with the Windows flag.
Hey, /g/. I am currently researching Proxmox, as I'd like to migrate my Debian 8 server + KVM VMs to it. I can understand all the container features and such, and that is why it appeals to me, as I'd like to have better management of what gets what resources and limiting CPU execution, and reducing full virtualization overhead.
My issue is with shared storage however, let me explain. My current host and setup is this:
Xeon 1240v3 with 8 GB of ECC
3TB HGST HDD formatted to XFS
Debian 8 Jessie
Samba - shares a directory /home/shares/public...

Oh oops I forgot to include it is also running Deluge and it saves to /home/shares/public/torrents.
So, to elaborate further, I torrent things like movies/music/games/etc, and then move them to their proper directories. So Plex will read my movies and TV and then my multiple media centres around my house that use Kodi can tie into Plex's database. Thanks again, /g/.
You can run a container that just hosts samba shares and map them on other containers or vms. That is how I handle management of my media to my plex server

So when are you getting you very own chromebook?
Im in love with this thing and you should be too.
Never. I have a nice T420 that i can triple boot (or quad boot, if i wanted BSD/chromiumOS or something) with 3 batteries that was cheaper then the shittiest 1366x768 celery chromebook.
Who here HYPE for the new Macbook Pro? I know I am!
Guess what, guys? The craziest thing just happened. I just checked the Apple app on my iPhone, and my pre-order status on my new Macbook Pro went from "ongoing" to "cancelled!" Well, I called up Apple HQ and you know darn well I complained! I said "hey, I paid the $1799 plus shipping and tax for my new Macbook Pro, why does it say 'cancelled?'" The lady actually told me that they took on wayyy more pre-orders than they had new Macbook Pros! I haggled with the woman until FINALLY...

First of all. KYS.
Second of all, I have never owned an apple device, never used an iphone or a macOS device.
Yet the last few months my lust/want/need for a laptop/ultra-portable computer has increased and thus, my gaze has edged towards the new macbook pros.
I was tempted to just get an XPS 13 but here I am, still waiting for macbook news.
Only thing I have heard that is bad, is the amount the macbook throttles the CPU under stress. This does sadden me.
How on earth did this HDD make it to 33k power ons? It looks like it's time to retire it, too, unless I run some disk repair utility to eke out a few thousand more hours.

Why are all my text messages being received as a wall of chinese characters?
I have a samsung galaxy s5 and performed a software update last night, after which this issue appeared. It goes away for awhile after restarting my phone, but soon reverts to the wall of chinese text.

hi I'm a Windows user and I'm considering dual booting with Linux for stuff besides gaming. Which kernel is good for beginners and doesn't require too much terminal using? also it has to look nice
I distinctly remember seeing the phrase "DLLMAO" in some fucking retarded powerpoint trying to get kids/women/whatever into programming, but after searching for a while I couldn't find any anywhere.
What's it from?
I think it was from some iphone presentation or something, does anybody know the keynote/presentation/whatever else it was from?
It was used as a combination between .dll and lmao to ~apply to the kids~ and it's been used rarely on /g/, but I can't seem to remember what it was from and as a meme it never quite took off
but I want to know what it's from specifically
I have a Focusrite 6i6, connected to my PC, that is causing a ton of static.
The FocusRite is connected to my PC using stereo 1/4 cables, which split into a single TRS cable that goes into my PC's motherboard.
I don't hear any static when I plug headphones into the audio interface. But when I record the Line In on my PC, like when I'm streaming online, I get HEAVY static and buzzing.
Any idea why this is brothers?
