So what do you guys make of the hype? There's only a few more hours before the review embargos lift and we'll finally get to see independent benchmarks. I'm really hoping AMD can pull of what they're promising because the Dekstop CPU market has been pathetic these last few years and this will really shake things up if the gains AMD is claiming prove true.

Yeah, but for around $180, that's a shit load of money for just two physical cores. The Devil's Canyon Pentium made sense because you could get it for as low as $45 but the i3 7350k is asinine at almost $200+ the cost of cooling it to achieve a high-enough overclock to make it worthwhile. The whole purpose of a desktop is that it can do more than just browse the web and play simple games and if that's all you want to do, then you have plenty of sub-$200 (for the whole system, not just the CPU) options like the Nvidia Shield TV or other Android platforms that perform those functions just as well.

The 7350k is a sucker's choice for people who think they're savvy and getting a great deal on something that excels at the tasks they need it specifically for but in reality, it's a terrible value proposition for that scenario and it's severely limiting the potential to do anything more complex on your computer than what a fucking cellphone can do. Just spend the extra $20 and get the i5 7500 or a R5 1600 and if you can't afford that, Just go with the G4560. If I could run most Wii games on Dolphin at 60fps on a god damn Phenom II back in the day, a 3.5ghz Kaby Lake part will not have any issues with emulators, I guarantee it. There is no reason to ever buy a two-core processor for more than $100 in 2017. EVER! Once again, DO NOT buy an i3 7350k, it's a stupid product for stupid people.

I think your Phenom II would struggle with BSNES and your 3.5GHz 4C Kaby Lake would strugle with Cemu. Why do you have so much sand in your vagina about someone seeing valuing single threaded speed over core count? If the chip isn't for you, don't buy it and move on with your life?

Higan is a horrendously inefficient (yeah, I know they're going for 100% accuracy but there comes a point where "good enough" is good enough and you can play 99% of all SNES games accurately enough on 1/100th the power it takes to run Higan on Snes9X) and CEMU is still in early development and they only way to get it up to decent speeds is brute force and even then it's optimized to run on 3 threads so you'll still be better off with a moderately clocked 4 core part rather than a high-clocked 2 core part with hyperthreading.

My whole point is that for what little the 7350k can do, it's overkill for the job because the added clock speed won't make it vastly superior to a cheaper part like the G4560 that can get the job done in a "good enough" manner. The extra $100 you're investing in just the 7350k, combined with the requirement of the high-end Z mobo it takes to overclock it as well as a decent cooler will bring you up to around $400 for the whole package (not including RAM, GPU, Storage, or any peripherals) versus $150 or so for the Pentium system. The extra 20% performance simply isn't worth the extra 160% cost it takes to get there. This is what makes it such a lousy value proposition. What's worse is you can get a system based off an i5 7500 with a lower end mobo (since you're not overclocking it) with a stock cooler for less than $350 and you'll have nearly identical single-threaded performance with significantly improved multi-threaded performance. Not only can you build a comparable Pentium system for significantly less but you can actually build a better i5 system for less. The cost of the i3 7350k makes no sense by any metric

What's putting sand in my vagina is that you're ignorantly giving extremely bad advice based on a self-defeating premise that it's okay to waste money on performance you'll never see. I'm sorry that the Sub-$200 CPU market is so fucked but the i3 7350k isn't the magic CPU it appears as on paper. When you start factoring in what else you can buy and the high-end parts that i3 requires to take advantage of it's overclockability, the 7350k just loses all of its appeal…

I'm not reading all that you sad little man. I'm sorry that poor marginal value raped your mother and burned your house down, but the fact is the 7350K is the cheapest way to get the fastest single threaded performance and there's nothing left to say.

No, you buy a used, unlocked i5 for $150 or less and overclock the piss out of it. That's the cheapest way to get the "fastest single threaded performance". end of story. Maybe if you're paying MicroCenter prices, I could see the temptation but at close to $200, the high clock speed isn't enough to make it compelling.

You might as well be arguing that somebody should buy an Ariel Atom as their daily commuter because " it's the cheapest, fastest way to go around the nurburgring". Yes, it's does what it claims to do in a very specific, niche context but you're sacrificing a whole lot of general usability for the sake of top-end performance that will go largely wasted due to the bottlenecks caused by its core count. If all you want to do is browse the web and play old games, buy a cheaper part. If you want a well-rounded machine for more complex, modern tasks, buy a different part with more cores and less hertz, and if you need the most performance you can get and money is an issue for you, buy used. Don't waste money on a niche product that over-performs in one area and under-performs in another key area. Please take your bad advice somewhere else.

Last time I was around a good computer was when Nvidia released the 290GTX and it's time I made myself a good station. In my extended absence, I didn't focus on parts, hype, and etcetera - thus, I've fallen behind.

The PC I'm trying to build is intended for streaming, gaming, rendering, and recording while keeping a low temperature. I am not trying to go all out either and I'm trying to be around the price of 2k. I can go higher or lower, just don't want to if it's avoidable.

I was thinking of having a SSD hub station or something like divided drives for separate programs to write on so the CPU doesn't have to look through a 1TB C drive while accessing DLLs.

Don't want to be extravagant, just a modest build that can do gaming on a game like Black Desert Online or Rainbow Six Siege, while recording and streaming that can also do great while rendering.

And if you guys got any tips for coolant, show me the way. Trying to get a clear view in today's market... So many people trying to shove things in my face. Feels like I'm an altar boy.

If you don't want to think too hard you can just copy someone else's build: https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/

If you want to be analytical, start with your core component performance requirements. Most people just look at a few benchmarks, pick out the few things they know they want, and then just buy whatever is on sale. Unless you're pushing up against some constraint, don't overthink it.

Not CS, in /chem/.

I got around 10-15 phone interviews and 3-4 in person interviews through linkedin. No takers so far.

Really frustrating. But I've gotten better prospects from Linkedin than anywhere else. Most places I've applied to without representation result in, "Thank you for applying, we will reach out if our employment demands change. Good luck on your search."

Maybe I'm just a terrible interviewer. I dunno.

Would you guys recommend a Master in CS? I've been studying for the GRE since being unemployed. Did well in fortran, never really looked at it otherwise.

And is C++/Java+Python worth studying?

This guy is mostly right but I would say that LinkedIn is useful exactly because HR people don't know shit and use LinkedIn to find people.

My wife looked for work all summer after graduating with her undergrad in CS. Come august she finally setup her LinkedIn crap and got a bunch of interviews and found a good software development job that she has enjoyed and worked at for the last year.

LinkedIn is very useful for small companies.

That being said I've never used it myself. I work in R&D at the doctoral level in a very niche field so I don't look for work, work looks for me.

Anyway, finding jobs is a playing probabilities as well. If you assume that you have some small chance with every application, sending out a large number of applications nearly assures that you will find something assuming you wrote your resume/CV/application reasonably well.

If you want to get an MS, i.e., with a thesis then you will need to know what you want to research in advanced. At least the field that is. No graduate program will take you seriously if you aren't adamant about what you want to work on.

If you want to get an MCS, i.e., coursework only, then by all means go for it. This could be a great opportunity for you to spread your wings. It will cost you however.

Rather than studying a specific language I suggest learning more about computer science in general, algorithms, complexity theory, data structures etc. These concepts transcend language and indeed will need to be known regardless of which are you working with.

I run a community built on SMF that originated and split off from a vB community. The latter is on the outs due to the corporation that owns it having a shit business plan and not being able to maintain it. I have the feeling the site is going to disappear sooner rather than later and I was wondering if anybody here knows of some way to archive the content/posts/etc in such a way that I could integrate them either into my own community or another entirely, whether built on vB software or otherwise.

tl;dr, is it possible to "copy" content from a vB forum without having access to the database? if so, how?

  2. You don't give the Cloud Jew any money.
  3. It's super easy. Just download whatever you want directly from Adobe, install it, and use AMTEmu to crack the installation. Look on Leddit for a detailed howto if you can't figure it out.
  4. Your classmates probably don't have informed opinions.

Looking at it's history it's been around a long time. I have used it in recent times. Seems my associates use it, or firefox as well. Saw nothing to make me dislike it to any extent to complain. KDE offers Conqueror web browser by default, it is not supported. I still use it when setting up systems if needed. Sucky browser? Call it Netscape
when everybody started to hate Netscape. Conqueror does work well in some systems though. But not for default usage. It will general freeze up if you give it some time.

Distros aren't a suitable measure of fragmentation as distros are usually just different combinations of different software for the same purpose.

This is bad, real bad.

Ubuntu tried with unity to provide a complete desktop experience with sensible default settings.
The global menu is a boon for anybody concerned about screen real-estate (13.3" laptops, etc...)
It has integration into things like cloud calendars, cloud storage, etc.
(some) touchpad & touchscreen gestures work right out of the box.
A consistent look and feel of applications that are part of the standard distribution (no ppas)
HiDPI scaling

If you want those features on for instance a Gnome desktop you can get them, but you basically have build your own configuration out of plugins and third party apps, which sucks balls.
FOSS software developers have a really questionable attitude when it comes to implementing default features and anything that works with proprietary systems. That was why Ubuntu/Unity was awesome, they didn't give a shit about the hypocritical "community" and just released stuff that works.
(ZFS on 16.04 is a another example, but unrelated)

Regardless of what else has happened, it's been nice with the Unity lovers coming out of the woodwork. Usually Linux people just talk about what they hate, not what they love.

At any rate, you should be fine. Gnome headerbars are just as space saving as global menu. We still don't know how Ubuntu will tweak gnome, but there's been global menu for gnome3 before, and it wouldn't take a lot for Canonical to do it again. Finally, if all else fails, the Unity devs haven't just dropped dead, they're committed to forking it.

Look here my man, you obviously have no idea of anything IT related.
The edition of windows doesn't have anything to do with anything. Some business/enterprise/VM features are locked, that's all the difference.
You can not fry a hardware by your OS. Your hardware components have their own low-level system which throttles back or shuts down if the sensors report higher voltages/temperatures than normal. It is impossible to fry your motherboard or any other HW component by using windows. It fucking is. It's actually extremely hard to damage any hardware by a software, it's almost impossible even if you WANT to do it. Nowadays hardware is extremely foolproof regarding this. The fried mobo mentioned above was caused by a cheap mobo paired with a cheap/faulty PSU. That's the only way to fry a mobo, because even if you put unsupported RAMs in it just won't start, even if the circuit in your house shorts the surge will be catched by the mobos self defense system and it will shut down everything in a split second before any harm can be done. Even a really really bad PSU probably won't fry a mobo, though that has the biggest chance to do so. Because it will just keep shutting down, protecting the surge from reaching components.

So "Windows 10 fried my friends mobo" is a 100% completely bullshit fucking story, and knowing how foolproof todays hardwares are, your friend had to do something EXTREMELY stupid to be able to fry his mobo.

Also, it is also impossible that Windows shuts down any of these low-level self defense mechanisms. I'm not even sure if it could be done in theory, but even if it could be, it would probably require you to invest time, knowledge and effort to try and do so.
I have to triple post, because some people ITT actually believe peoples hardware are getting fried because they use Home Edition Windows. No man. If you manage to fry ANY of your hardware in 2017, its your own fucking fault, and you must have done something EXTREMELY retarded. These hardware are designed to withstand even the most retarded user and the most hardcore conditions including high ambient temperature, misplaced/uncompatible/wrong voltage components, circuit surges and unstable electrical systems.
It wasn't always the case, before thermal throttling introduced, processors were fried by playing some game for a while, but that was in 2002.
Today, if your mobo gets fried, it's either faulty by the factory or it's your own fucking retarded fault, the latter being the case 99.99999% of the time.

Alright, so you do your dns resolutions through an encrypted tunnel and ???
The ISP will still know the IP addresses you communicate with unless you're using a VPN tunnel... and in that case, shouldn't your DNS resolution be done through the VPN as well? What is the use case for this?

>Alright, so you do your dns resolutions through an encrypted tunnel and ???

It would not be through a tunnel, It would simply be with an an encrypted connection.

The ISP and others in between can see that you, your network, are connecting to a server with an encrypted connection.

One could figure out easily enough that the connections are likely DNS queries. But nothing is in the clear as far as the DNS queries are concerned. It is end-to-end. The ISP or others could not be capable to intercept to alter, misdirect, redirect or log the actual queries in any useful manner.

>The ISP will still know the IP addresses you communicate with

As for knowing what site one is connecting or connected to? Yes I would say, it would have to have an IP address to ask the remote site to talk to it and that would need an address to respond to.
