Nice summary. I don't think you can defeat smart phones when you consider how dependent people have become of them. I have a hard time imagining how modern normals would function without them. Everyone has become too accustomed to how convenient it is to own one.

I want the Librem to succeed but the constant delays has me worried. I probably wont get one since I don't really have a need for any other functionality besides calling and texting. A dumb phone should suffice

Is there any way in C++ to call a parent's function from an instance of a child class, that is, not from any definition within a function of the class itself, but directly when using that object.

Reason I'm asking is I'm taking this C++ class and whoever made this piece of shit class (Think it was Stroustrup himself, actually) I'm using did something very stupid in naming a variable the same thing as a function in the base class. If I try changing it around, I get linker errors. I suppose I could just recompile it all from source, but that seems like a lot of work for something so trivial. I could also just inherit my own class from it similarly and not be dumb, but that's also more work than a way to explicitly call the function.

Talking about Fl_Window's w() function, and Graph_lib::Window's w variable for the interested.

I'm thinking about buying the Pinebook Pro instead of an old Thinkpad, as it offers modern hardware without any major hardware backdoors.

> Can offer a useable experience with a deblobbed kernel, only thing you'll loose is WiFi

> No Intel IME or AMD PSP, only possible backdoor is a 32kb boot ROM

> Publicly available component datasheets and schematics

> Hardware privacy switches for webcam and mic

> Good battery life and USB-C charging

Is there anything not to like about this device, besides the fact that it's ARM based?

No. I've heard enough bad stuff about them to not trust them as a company, and I want a laptop without any IME. The IME can't be fully disabled in newer Intel CPUs, so my only options are older hardware or ARM.

I have one and I like it a lot. it feels pretty high-quality (metal instead of cheap plastic on the outside), the wifi just worked out of the box, and the laptop is decently fast. definitely fast enough for programming, listening to music and watching videos. The screen is pretty good too.

Initially, it comes preinstalled with a bunch of stuff, like Mate and Hexchat. I removed all that and just installed a window manager.

I only had very few issues with debian arm. to compile some of my programs I had to add the /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf folder to LD_LIBRARY_PATH, so that pkg-config finds all the libraries. and when upgrading to debian testing I had to force the upgrade of libdrm2.

but then everything just worked.

I have one machine on which I really need to run Windows to make full use of all its features, i.e. games and professional audio hardware. But I even dualboot that machine with Linux and I have Linux on every other machine. For most standard use cases there really is no reason to run Windows and in many fields it will weigh the user down like webdev stuff.

ON FORUM POST THERE IS A VIDEO TUTORIAL HOW TO INSTALL AND HOW TO USE IT I WILL SHARE HERE:

Video link:http://streamable.com/3kozt

The patch was created by abbodi1406 & notebookcheck from My digital forum life and TEAMOS

A project to bypass Extended Security Updates eligibility check for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.

Win7/Win2k8R2 official support and updates ended on 14 January 2020.

However, Microsoft will provide additional 3 years of security updates to the organizations and businesses which have paid the license for the ESU.

This project helps bypassing this restriction and install ESU updates without purchasing a license, as a proof of concept, non-profit, consumer-targeted.

## Important Notes

ESU updates are not supported offline (you cannot integrate them), they must be installed online on live system.

The ESU eligibilty is only checked during update installation, therefore, you can choose to keep the bypass installed, or remove it afterwards.

The bypass will only allow to install the ESU updates, it will not permit to get the updates themselves via Windows Update.

You can acquire and download the updates manually from Microsoft Update Catalog site

You can track the updates KB numbers, either check the official Update History page

I’m currently studying for a degree in Computer Sciences. Before choosing this, most people i’ve consulted told me that I should instead take Engineering since I was an academic student. But I always had a keen interest in IT related fields. Now that i’ve chose this, I don’t know what i should be doing next. Whether i should learn how to code or what? So far, programming is the only thing on my mind.

>TL;DR: nerd cannot decide what he should do after he’s done with his CS degree.

ITT—Suggestions on what i should do. Is coding worth it? Which language is the most valuable (and/or) easy to learn?

I appreciate the response but you hyperfocused on my arrogant statement of, "let us who care about hardware write the software" rather than addressing the real meat of my post:

>Mathematics are used in software development.

>The distinction that I'm trying to convey is that in order to use any of the aforementioned, you are not required to approach those problems the same way you would in a mathematics classroom: rote memorization of various forms of problems each with its extensive micromanagement and minute tracings. In contrast, all that is required is to have a conceptual understanding of the mathematical process, or processes, at play and be able to implement that process on a computer.

>These problem-solving mindsets are in fact different. The classroom mindset (the "programming is all maths" mindset) is characterized by the extensive micromanagement of one complex problem at a time while the programming mindset is characterized by the extensive macromanagement of dozens, if not hundreds, of relatively simple problems simultaneously.

>When you say "care about hardware" is that from a reddit "I FUCKING LOVE COMPUTING" perspective, or are you involved hardware design?

I am not actively involved in hardware design but I have used Xilinx Vivado for one of their FPGAs. When I say care about hardware, I'm referring to a better utilization of hardware from a software perspective; specifically, data-oriented design where you write software to efficiently use the CPU caches as much as possible. I see a lot of "programming is all maths" people completely ignore things such as any kind of manual memory allocation, slab allocation, structure of arrays, and various other things that allow for better utilization of hardware over their garbage-collected OOP shit.

Ahh fair enough, I see what you mean. Haskell is a good case of that, where you have category theorists with an abstract view of hardware as some generalization of a turing machine writing programs. This of course is fine for the work they're doing, but I don't think that's what people mean when they utter the "programming is all math" line. Without qualification, the line is a bit silly as it doesn't really communicate the intent. "Programming is an example of applied logic" is perhaps a bit clearer. Now with the category theorists dismissed to their ivory towers, there is still a lot other math guys can do to help you achieve optimal performance in "real" languages and for "real" work. Look at something like LAPACK and all of the work that has gone into things like Intel's MKL.

As for Xilinx, I think there DSP48 is a good example of applied mathematics for hardware. http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug479_7Series_DSP48E1.pdf. Of course the "Place and Route" step in the FPGA Implementation step is another good example of an optimization problem where mathematics directly applies, albeit behind the scenes.

Let's not pretend it wasn't a good line though.

I've encountered enough people who do or at least hold an opinion adjacent to it which is why I'm austically screeching about it so much. It truly is nonsensical in my view.

>"Programming is an example of applied logic" is perhaps a bit clearer

Absolutely agree, it's a far more apt definition.

>there is still a lot other math guys can do to help you achieve optimal performance in "real" languages and for "real" work.

Fuck yeah they can, cryptography and databases would be shit without them (I never tried to claimed they couldn't by the way) not to mention all the crazy hardware advances that have given us the convenience that we have today.

>As for Xilinx

Thanks for the reference and the response.

good luck. being tipsy might actually help with a Gentoo installation, since you'll focus on following instructions as they're written.

I've noticed that uMatrix sometimes fucks up and completely disables itself until you refresh the page, particularly if the browser restores the previous session or if you drag out a tab to make a new window. So I want to improve my hosts file, but I'm not sure what to put there.

Is there a list somewhere of domains that are mostly useless for anything other than tracking? Ideally separate lists for all the domains used by specific websites like facebook, in case you don't care about it ever working. For example I want to disable literally everything from google, except I still want youtube-dl to work, but I'm not sure how to accomplish that.
