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.

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.

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?

yeah, saving it as static isn't really an issue, i've got a tool someplace i can use for that so i may just do it.

I had seen/used a script some years ago for zetaboard that basically crawled the forum and generated a database using the publicly visible information (usernames, posts, forum structure, etc), had hoped there was something similar out there for this specific scenario. Drat.

yea, Sounds like these people are trying to get their services very much finalized, if not actually there already.
Just need a larger user base.

Some services overdo the, 'privacy danger thing' to get people, scare them essentially to use their service.
"ultimate privacy'

A VPN should work as designed, with it's intended uses. Privacy, anti-gov-censorship, corporate,
business usage, basic vpn service, etc.

Talked with them before this popped up. Something different.

No reason not to just get (pay) a months service to use the service instead of asking for beta testing usage.

They are just trying to ultimately succeed in this and no reason why it should not.

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.

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.

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.

Well, the imaginable is reality, even before this. There is a reason countries like yours likely and specifically dis-allows corporate and government from just collecting data of users. I would bet that likley it is illegal, I know it is illegal
in some countries to collect data in such ways.

Reality is, if data is collected and easily accessible, sold, one may end up in
some legal dispute, etc. Some data may be just right there to be accessed.
For a few$$ Depending on it's worth. It could be manipulated in any way,
understand many Americans are dumb as rocks when it comes to
protections. Example, one guy who was pretty clearly innocent was put on death row. Information, 'evidence' if-you-will' was shown to be fabricated, they know who did the crime but since they got somebody it didn't matter.

Jurors said, when asked why the guilty verdict when they understood the man was innocent, people said because the prosecution said to find him guilty.

Not sure where you are but, paranoia is not the people concerned about privacy,
but those who work against it and the possible outcomes.

If you are not an American, you have no clue. I bet your healthcare records are
private as well. This entails peoples browsing history, which can be peoples healthcare and healthcare management. Where was mentioned I beleive the workplace wellness program that trumps team wants to initiate, that may be what phase 2 of his repeal and replace program he mentioned after he lost it.

I think all your saying where you live you have guarantees of privacy, likely even built into law and have the luxury to take basic privacy for granted. No need to lift a finger even, except say, your country is paranoid.

You can have trump and the Republicans, because your county is obviously undisciplined,
you will be deemed 'not good citizens' and be treated as such.

I would say you are a right -wing American, Not because of speaking English. Heck even foreigners who have English as a second or third language speak better English than a good portion of Americans in terms of communication on the internet conversing with others.
I for one am pretty bad at it as English is my first language and as an American.

Apple just stopped supporting my Macbook with OSX Sierra. So that means from now on Apple will not let me download the newest sleekest version of their Operating System. I don't want to sell it because well it wont sell for enough to justify all the money I put into it.

So I want to turn it into a Linux machine, down the line; with my SSD and 16gb of RAM it should be decent. Ill probably keep OS X on a very small partiton, just because. Im wondering what Linux distro I should use, I've played around with Ubuntu before and Fedora. But Im thinking about Arch and maybe Kaili.

Thougts,suggestions,experiences?
