'id rather pay $50 than $10 for the same product'
Worth it.

keep in mind you'll still need to pay for shipping (which was a god dang 8 dollars extra wtf steam)
I'd literally rather pay $50 and no shipping from Amazon Prime.  I refuse to pay shipping, the last time I did was for a GTX 1070 only in the season it came out.

Nothing I love more than being linked a loving mobile version of a website on a desktop browser

Here's the fixed URL for anyone else who had to suffer with this headassery:

Can you not just ban anyone who has visited your server?  I feel like there's a console command to fetch the IP of past connected clients with their BLID along that, and you could ban them on that.

stuffty behavior sure, it's unfortunate that preventing this would require technical skills that most people don't have.

This just in: Handing people free stuff is not development
There is literally no room for growth because we stick our richards in and offer free everything
Why be learn to be a doctor when there are free clinics funded by the west
Why be a farmer when we're sending free food all the time
Why even loving bother doing anything when all your hardships are taken care of by outside forces
It's not rocket science, you're literally arguing that giving Africans fish is better than teaching how to loving fish
TIL giving 2 millennia of technological advancement and a century of guidance from the most advanced civilizations in human history to a continent that barely even developed the wheel independently before transitioning them into independent nations and leaving them well-developed modern architecture and infrastructure is a meaningless trifle in comparison to the raw materials they sold on export


I've seen some dumb stuff in my time but jesus christ you guys are loving dumb

It seems like you're attributing the left-lean of academia to the left-lean of the professors and teachers. But why do the professors and teachers lean left?
hint:  it may have to do with the general success of properly implemented left policies.

Buy whatever is within your budget
The amount of websites available to help pick a PC to build is amazing.

Use these sites.
aye stuff i forgot price range

I'm looking to go beneath 1000 dollars, I want to spend under 400 but if I can get good games to run above that that's fine
Realistically for $400 you're going to get jack stuff that'll run games at 30 FPS on minimum, 60 FPS for super optimized mass-market games (LoL, SC2, etc).  For $1000 you can get something that'll run everything at least on medium (and I'm talking top-demanding games) 60 FPS.

and here i am, trying to figure out how programming languages even... work.

I tried starting with Javascript, failed.
Tried starting with C++, forgetin' failed.
I've tried starting with TorqueScript like 4 times before and failed,
and this time, I'm starting to get what's going on, but like half the stuff doesn't make sense.

How does this exist?
 where did it come from?

these two questions seem to hold me back since If I don't know where the variables are coming from (just to give an example.)
Then how the hell am I supposed to know where to get other variables should I need them?

and that's just the beginning.
I strongly recommend Java.  Its syntax and implementation is probably the most basic while also the most universal, not to mention Java is very friendly and will handle lots of things for you off the get go.

Consider resources like online classes/tutorials and/or books as well.  Those will get you in the right direction and serve as a guide.

Unreal Script might have have one of the worst string libraries ever. Absolutely mind blowing that I have to implement my own strpos function in a games scripting language.

On top of a bad standard library, older versions of the Unreal engine are loaded with comical exploits. I found a way to get files loaded into anyone's System directory in pure Unreal Script. Kind of makes me scared to play UT and KF now >_>
That's forgeted.  Have you reported it to Unreal?

On an unrelated humorous note:

So let me get this straight: Birth control is doing exactly what it's supposed to do and nobody is surprised
The bigger point is that providing love ed and contraceptives to teens brings those rates down a stuff ton.  Teens don't have babies because they want to 90% of the time, you've got like at least 3-4 years more of fun and then real life can come at you, but they're gonna forget anyway and almost all of them have stuffty pullout game so contraceptive helps here.

If someone can remake this to be a glitter bomb that'd be dope

That motherboard is dead.  Don't take it.

Yeah this too

Alright using your budget I was able to come up with a build for around $580 CAD that offers much greater performance for your buck, along with a great upgrade path so in the future you can get a higher end CPU, RAM, GPU, so forth.

  • Intel Pentium G4400 @3.3 Ghz (CPU)
  • MSI GTX 1050ti OC 4GB (GPU)
  • G.Skill NT 8GB (4x2) DDR4-2133 (RAM)
  • MSI H110M Pro-VD MicroATX (MOBO)
  • Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm 3.5" (HDD)
  • EVGA 430w 80+ White (PSU)
  • Corsair Carbide 88R MicroATX mid-tower (CASE)

Trust me, you really should go for new parts with this one. That motherboard doesn't have a good upgrade path much at all and the tech it has is pretty outdated, and the CPU's available for it aren't all that powerful and as Pngu said, takes up quite a lot more power to run. This build has a good upgrade path if you ever so wanted, and good enough power to run MANY games at High - Max at 30 -  60FPS, depending on the game and resolution. But even with the Pentium G4400 which is a VERY capable chip for what it is, and the 1050ti which has amazing performance for the price, you won't be let down.

BTW The motherboard is a flagship, but the flagship in 2010. Since you're getting the board for free, you can just accept it anyways and either create a second build to give to someone / keep or sell the board / keep it as a collectible
An Intel Pentium?  Lol forget no, those things are garbage.  For <$800 you're way better off going with AMD products.  At $600, Intel and Nvidia are outside your price range.

It's called "Matlab". It's some special programming language for engineers or something IDFK

either way I learned a little Java in high school and this seems about as confusing as when I first learned Java
Matlab is a pretty great language, also what the forget exactly did you do to make it do as you said?  Matlab is a language that literally deals in math on a programming level, so I'm highly inclined to believe it isn't the code's fault...

In any case, Matlab is NOTHING like Java.  The only similarities are basic fundamentals that many languages have (loops, control statements, etc.).  Basic math things can be done in Excel but Matlab excels over Excel in doing anything complicated and calculus oriented.  Excel probably has the same functionality now but it's Excel so it kinda sucks.

I'm also going to assume that since it's mandatory for engineers, you're an engineering major, and you'll have classes down the line that require Matlab (we do at my school too, but a Matlab class isn't necessary though there is a 1-credit Matlab course I did take and got an A+).  Better to get the hang of it now than later.  Sounds also like this is going to be a class of self-teaching.
