I've been out of the laptop market forever but I'm heading to college next semester. What's the cheapest thing possible that I can carry around easily with a decent battery life? I'm probably going to just be running a Linux OS on it so it doesn't have to be some sort of beast at all. I don't do much gaming(I don't like it in the ass), and I'll mostly use it for light web browsing and compiling shit.
Hey guys I have a problem with ALSA on debian.
- Root has sound
- User doesn't have sound (permission denied)
- Adding user to audio group and resigning in does nothing
- chmod -R r+w /dev/snd/* gives user (incomplete) sound
- Sound is locked by the current used application (you have sound on steam but no sound on the browser when you alt tab out, to get sound in the browser you ahve to close steam)
- Rebooting doesn't preserve this file permission change
Please send help
How to send raw data, without USB protocols, handshakes... to USB port on Windows 7 using C or C++?
You don't. The closest you'll get is using libusb.
Most parts of the protocol are handled by the driver and the IC.
If you want to do raw USB, just bit-bang it on an AVR/Arduino or do it using an FPGA.
The shield does the same abstraction by adding a controller IIRC
Take a look at the V-USB library for AVR. It can also run on the Arduino.
You'll have add some components on the port (see pic), but it's not extremely hard.
PC for games
Linux for servers & laptops
Apple is for production, work, coding
Can we all agree ? without using memes
Fuck off Apple shill.
Apple is for paying too much for shit you can do with all other operating systems aswell.

I'm pretty interested in Employee Benefits at the moment and was wondering what kind of programming languages or skills would be good to have for the field. I was thinking that knowing something like SQL and having knowledge/skills in database and data-sets might be a valuable/useful skill to have. Also thinking python would be useful since literally everyone knows python. What do you guys think would be good languages to learn for such a field?
Did HR software (with benefits) implementation for a while. The software and its concurrent were mainly using SQL. I know for a fact a lot are PHP based, some are .net. After all, it's not too complicated of a software: track employees, their time and their salary + benefits...
Why are 90% of programming, math, engineering etc tutorials on youtube created by 16 year old Indians?
Also, why do all tech reviewers talk in the exact same tone, and always start with "Hey guys what's up it's _____ and today I'm going to be showing you ____"

If you aren't programming, editing config files or shit for school, have some self respect and use latex.
Also, the author of TeX has a good set of books worth reading about TeX itself and programming.
his name is Donald Knuth
Why are there people on /g/ who get so upset at the sight of threads about the OS that 90% of the world uses to the point where they take screenshots and repost them in order to prove some paranoid conspiracy.
How do I not get cucked by someone while still being able to use a smartphone in this day in age?
Why can't someone make a noncucked simple smartphone that has a few apps, can browse the web, and other things that isn't botnet infested bullshit?
Why do we still have the CapsLk key? Surely we can bind this to the shift key in the form of a douple press. That space could be used for something else.
Something else like what?
We already have some useless button and I don't think the caps lock stay in that side. Plus, it's faster to just tap one time the caps lock instead of a double tap on the shift
