4 months with a stupid CS degree and no job.

I don't like Social Media, but I've been recommended from websites + friends to set up a LinkedIn profile.

What do you guys think? Anyone succumbed to 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.

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?

Mainly to catch windows 10 telemetry and auto updating,

I'm looking for a nice firewall that asks me allow/block before an outgoing or incoming connection is made.

The only ones Ive used in the past were:
  • Zone Alarm - it was decent and I may try it out again to see how it's changed in six years
  • GlassWire Free - This one is out of the question, as the free version doesnt block anything until AFTER the fact, and you have to manually go and block it instead of on-demand.

You can turn these off. Just poke around a bit. But I would recommend outpost firewall free. Just turn off windows firewall and you can control what happens

Turn off 'alerts' after you get to know it for a while, after you know know what things look like.
Your network, computer, will have constant connections, random or otherwise that your router
will drop anyway. Your router will drop connections that you or a program on your computer
did not initiate.
-
Zone alarm is lame. Over emphasized as a firewall. Built in windows firewall is better. Updates would screw an good install up. It would have every random connection, as a threat. After soo many random alerts, a popup "get the paid version, "for piece of mind" would appear.

As person says, trust what you have. I am Leary about how MS win 10 says it collects information.
I just use win 7 pro and a trusted linux distribution.

Have SSD's prices started to level off, or should I still wait to buy one?
With the way flash drives got so cheap in the last 4 years, I'm willing to be patient in order to get a better value for a large capacity SSD.

What do you think? I'm not one to frequently upgrade parts, so I'd be buying a large one and don't want to end up regretting it and wishing I'd waited.

Or don't don't forget. It isn't not an unbig deal.

Although the SSD I've had for years and only eaten 3% into its lifespan was an MLC drive and probably has a lot more write cycles overall than the triple level 3d NAND flash.

But seriously don't disable hibernate and shit unless you need the space. Just set your computer to sleep instead of hibernate. Hibernate it yourself if you want to.

>System Restore - life and performance

As someone who almost never has system restore enabled, I would literally never recommend not to have system restore enabled. The people who run with system restore off don't need to be told lol.

Ok, this might not be the right place to ask this, but it seemed the likeliest board here.

I want to know how to harvest character animations and backgrounds from an existing cartoon to eventually make a parody cartoon of the same subject, similarly to what cartoon network did when making their Space Ghost parody spinoffs.

I tried googling it, but I'm really not sure how to even phrase it to get the right results. Anyone who knows anything about the subject, any links you could provide on it or advice on a more appropriate place to look for info about this, I would greatly appreciate.

You can mask out the background, but it's of very limited use for compositing. Then as now, the only way to get anything of quality is to rotoscope animations. This is tedious, but doesn't require talent.

Unless you know programming (hint moviepy, opencv) you might try to use image stabilization, cropping and or masking, stabilizing again un-stabilizing afterward etc... And a lot of trail and error.
You"d need adobe premiere or a similar tool though. I am not aware of free software that would be able to do it.

For best results own proper tools and know programming.
Of course if all else fails you can also do frame-by frame with a lasso tool.

Realistically though you might just trace the characters to have them in an animateable vector format and do your own animations.
